  1. This year's Christmas tree ornaments, with a Maryland twist

    Nothing too fancy here, a different snowflake design than the previous ones I cut out of Holly and a Maryland blue crab cut from Chatke Viga so it looks pretty close to the cooked color of a Maryland summertime favorite treat. Both were triple thick cut (.25" each) to make more people happy...
  2. Purple Haze

    Purple Haze is 6" D x 10" H and is made from a Holly tree that I received from a member of my wood turning club in Jacksonville, FL.

  5. Bedside table bookmark

    A bookmark shelf perfect for a bedside table. Set the book across the shelf open to the page you're on (see the last picture for an example).

  9. A Small Vase in Lightly Spalted Holly.

    Here's a small vase I made a few days back. The Holly was given to me by a friend who is a Tree Surgeon here in the U.K. It stands a fraction under 4 inches tall, and is about 2.5 inches inner diameter at the rim. I decided to keep the shape quite simple, and with minimum decoration, to let...
  10. Side Table - The light and the dark. Greene and Greene Side Table

    When I decided to build this table I had one purpose in mind, to break the misconception of making a table from Popular wood.

  15. Eagle Staff

    First post so be kind. Just graduated from school, have my first job and for the first time I find myself with a little disposable time and a few sheckles to spend on a hobby I've been eying for a long time. I love scouting and have toyed around with carving sticks on countless camp outs...
  16. Holly Bowls

    This the first batch of bowls that I had rough tuned back in October with my new bowl saver tool. The large bowl is 9.5"x 4" and 3/16th thick. I got greedy when to rought it, I had only left about 7/8". When it dried it looked more like a football than a bowl. The others didn't move as much...

    Long-time lurker, first time poster… Here's a little walnut footstool from a board that a friend was about to take to the thrift store, from some relative's farm's front yard. Rough-sawn, dried forever, and cupped as all get out. Maybe 6 feet long, 8" wide tapering to a couple inches. Wedges...
