  1. Tea Box with "Legs"

    So a couple of weeks ago, almost three, Ellen35 asked if we could look at one more tea box. The one she made was constructed of rosewood. You can look at it here. Her box inspired me to make this one. I liked the legs to give it a lift off of the counter. Mine is also made with rosewood, but...

  6. Ironwood Goblet

    I had this piece of Ironwood that was laying around the shop and thought I needed a little lathe time today. So, after all the trees were trimmed this morning, I slipped into the barn to relax a while. This wood had a funny shape to the branches- like a lot of flats all around it instead of...

    Coffered Great Room Ceiling using 5/4 red oak finish milled on-site in my shop. Hides four sprinkler heads which were carefully positioned during original construction so coffering would be in the right place. Ceiling was finished with 5/8" drywall and then the millwork was added. Some...

  18. Studley, Stickers and a Sketcher

    My buddy EarlS has been a most generous fellow to me (and other LJs I know) over the years. I have had to refrain from mentioning to him that I like something he made because he has a terrible habit of making another and shipping it to me in short order ;-) So last year, we were both doing a...
