Just a few small projects I have finished this week. The first 2 bottle stoppers are mahogany. The next 2 are pecan. The fifth is a sapele keychain. The pen on the end is 24 kt gold it is made of some old barn wood and it is spalted oak.
I made this key chain for my future son-in-law because he wore out the one I made for him a couple of years ago. This is a different design from the last key chain. It is made of walnut and I added a couple of sewing eyelits to protect the wood from wearing thin from the chain.
Keychains in Bolivian Rosewood, Mesquite and Cherry woods. Chopsticks in Pau Amarello (yellowheart), Cherry and Honduran Mahogany. Desk name and business card holder in Zebrano (zebrawood) and Walnut.
I use a Hegner scroll saw and lots of sandpaper. My font is a free-hand letter style that I...

This is a great way to show off all those exotic scraps you've been saving.
BECKY is Amboyna Burl, Pau Amarello, Purpleheart, Zebrano and Paduak woods on a Walnut substrate.
I stock over 25 hardwoods of exotic and domestic origin, so there are always little bits that need rescue from the landfill.
Yes here are more "pen"dants I really do like these kits. The other reason for these is it is teacher appreciation week next week at my daughter's school and the PTA has asked for donations to give out to teachers and faculty. So the first two pens you see here are on the way to the school. The...

Been busy the past two weeks after our only Spring Craft Show. One of our regular customers asked if I could make a selection of Inertia Pens and Key Chain Screw drivers for them to use as gifts during the holidays.
The Inertia Pens were recently put on Clearance at Woodcraft so I ran over to...
For the recent "turningboxswap2020" I made a set of hopefully what will be useful items for Keebler (who was also the moderator) Starting with the Survival Pen and using Bubinga for the body I wanted to have a dark enough wood on the other pieces that were all chrome kits to contrast so I wen...

KUNAI key chain - 11×3.5 cm
Wenge….all cuts on bandsaw and scrollsaw. I made double sided blades with angle grinder sanding disk, along marked line.
....add some little screws just for better look. Finish wood oil.
I had a few small scraps around, so I thought I'd experiment with an inlay. This key-chain is what I ended up with. The wood is cherry with purpleheart inlay. I just ran the cherry over my router table with a 1/4" straight bit and then cut some 1/4" strips of purpleheart a bit taller than the...
the large plank is the headboard of my moms bed during her highschool days, thats around 55 years ago. the legs of the bed were no good already so i just decided to make it into this and used the side frames of the bed for framing of the board.
