  1. Bowling Pens

    I turned a few pens today in an attempt to get one good one to include in the pen swap. These are made from bowl scraps from past projects. I need some help from fellow Lumberjocks to pick the lucky pen. The first one is from my Big Leaf Maple bowl. The second pen is made from Crotch Honey. The...
  2. Another Wine Rack

    Holds 7 wine bottles. I'm not sure what kind of wood the wine bottle holder is. I think it may be honey locust based on a photo of a project I saw here on LJ's. The base is black walnut. I got the wood from a friend off his firewood pile and thought I'd try it as an experiment. Once I got into...
  3. "Fall" & "Winter" Star Tables

    I finished this pair of small side tables a couple weeks ago. They're made of a number of 45-degree cut diamond shaped pieces that are all the same size (about 2 inches from point to point on the long side). The regularity of each piece and 45-degree angle naturally creates the 8-sided star...
  4. Couple of New Turkey Calls

    Needed a couple of more calls for inventory. I did one from striped honey locust 3 /12" slate over glass and the other is mesquite burl 3" slate over glass. Both of these sound good.
  5. Hollow Vase.

    This is a hollow vase ( hollowed from the bottom) made from a branch I cut off our honey Locust tree. It is 3 1/2" diameter and 6 1/2" high and finished with Danish Oil and 3 stage buff and wax. It almost made it!! The last photo shows what happened to the side- it broke through where it is...
  6. Using up scraps

    This is an exercise in using up scraps in the shop. I had the four western cedar sides of the box assembled and sitting around from prototyping a shut-the-box game. My first test was too tall, so cutting one of my boxes in half vertically gave me the two I needed to make the games. The base is...
  7. Honey Locust Shallow Bowl

    I had some Honey Locust roughed out blanks drying for a couple of years and decided to see what one looked like when turned. It has some interesting grain patterns including a little iridescence and some dark staining. Finished with the Ty Fine Finishes oil. The bowl is 11" in diameter and 1.5"...
  8. Saw Bench

    I needed a saw bench. I've done most of my rough sawing by clamping to my workbench or table, then standing on a milk crate to get a little higher. That's not ideal because I'm not at the right height and I'm balancing on a milk crate… so I needed a saw bench. I like the looks of Tom Fidgeon's...
  9. Honey Locust Breakfast Bar Island Countertop

    A friend commissioned me to build a kitchen breakfast bar that needed to match their table made of an unknown tropical species. It measures roughly 10' x 10' and 21" wide. I used a 3 step dye process where I artistically wet sand through the layers using 50/50 spirits and wipe on poly as the...
  10. Honey Locust Spoon

    This spoon is carved from a Honey Locust tree. I recieved a small log from a friend at our local carving guild. She had said that last winter had taken a toll on the tree and needed to be removed. And lucky for me I was able to use some of it. The yellow colored sap wood against the tan...
  11. Ladle

    Been playing with a piece of Honey Locust given to me by a former student and co-worker. It didn't come out as nice as I had hoped- too primitive. Finished with mineral oil. I'm definitely signing up for Spoontaneous's class!! Learned several important lessons, however- - Honey Locust is very...
  12. pooh

    This hollow form vessel is turned from honey locust. It measures approximately 6.5 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide and is finished with wipe-on poly. All comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
  13. Three turned candle sticks

    Here are ones in oak, walnut, and honey locust (thorn). The oak is another one made from an old oak 4×4 I rescued from the scrap pile. It is about six inches tall. The walnut one was going to be a gavel head but i decided to to do this. The one on the right started out as a piece of firewood...
  14. Honey locust (thorn) and sassafras candle sticks

    The stick on the left was a piece of honey locust (thorn) firewood about ten inches in diameter. Max diameter now is about four and one half inches. Most of what was pared off was pretty well rotted and quite soft. When I started working on this one, I was not too confident that I would find...
  15. Honey locust natural edge bowl

    Natural edge bowl turned from cherry. Edge left a little thicker than normal to keep the bark formation on the ends.
  16. Colorful Cribbage Board

    I recently had a co-worker ask for a cribbage board, I don't keep any pre-made boards on hand, so I asked what he wanted and he said he didn't care. As I was going through my lumber stack and off-cuts, I came across a length of honey locust that must have been towards the top of the log. As I...
  17. Monitor Risers for my Wife

    My wife asked me to make a couple of monitor risers to replace the phone books her monitors were sitting on. These two were made from honey locust and the remnants of some ovangkol from previous projects. As and added bonus, I chose these species to match the school colors as seen on the mouse...
  18. Simple Carved Bowl

    Just finished this simple carved bowl for my son and his fiance'. They'll be using it as a centerpiece for a dining table my son made awhile back. Hope they like it! All the carving was done using my angle grinder with my new toy (and now my favorite for doing this kind of carving), the...
  19. Another pair of peek a boos

    A couple of smoothers in my signature style. The walnut one is 8in long, 50 degree bed angle, the other is a 6in long mini smoother with a honey locust body and 52.5 degree bed. Both use Hock blades, 1-3/4 in the 8in and 1-1/2 in the 6in. As before, all metal is stainless and, with the...
  20. Router Table Extension Wing

    For the longest time I have wanted to have a router table extension wing on my table saw because I simply do not have the space for yet another piece of woodworking equipment in my shop. The extension wing was built from an old press wood table and bordered with honey locust. The fence...
