  1. Wine stoppers

    I just completed a few wine stoppers made of various woods. Mostly Tulipwood, Purpleheart and Kingwood. They are finished with 3 coats of Tru-Oil. Thanks for looking, all comments are appreciated.
  2. Kingwood Winged bowl

    I'm finally getting my winged Kingwood bowl posted. This was the second winged turning, done after doing the winged goblet. I don't have a lot of pics of the sides, but they curve in similar to the skirted bowl and goblet. I chose to leave in the critter marks, along with the pith contrasting...
  3. Tsunami Purple Firebird

    This unit is for a fellow in North Carolina. Gibson style reverse Firebird body, done in purpleheart and black walnut. The pickguard is kingwood. It features gold and black hardware, a Tele style neck with a Firebird headstock with obligatory kingwood inlay and purple paint finish, my Tsunami...
  4. pens

    I thought I would try pen turning. Not being sure if I would like it, I bought one of those Penn State drill press attachments. I figured if I didn't like it, I would only be out $20. Not only did it work, it was a lot of fun. The downside is, now I'm a bit poorer as I ordered a 12" mini...
  5. Older project pics - small bowls and cups

    Older project pics - small bowls and cups the grey looking wood o one small cup came from a huge oak in my yard. When I was splitting logs I noticed these dark blue areas of the wood, streaks and patches of blue. I saved some and turned it and when polished it looks quite grey and lost most...
  6. My first boxes

    I had some 3 inch by 3 feet boards of exotic hardwood, and I had been thinking about making some boxes. Also, I figured "why make 1 or 2 boxes when I can use the same settings and make 10?" The boxes are made out of the following woods (from left to right): cocobolo with figured maple, bocote...
  7. A Plethora Of Pens

    My daughter wanted a couple of pens to give to her Summer work term coworkers as a token of appreciation so I got really ambitious (or really crazy) and went into production and turned twenty of them. When you get into the swing of things they can really zip along. :) The woods I used are...
  8. Craftsman Bookcase with Accents

    This project was from Woodsmith. I added the Greene & Greene style plugs and drawer pull. The project is made from Sapele with the legs made from Pommel Sapele. The 1/2" plugs are Kingwood, the 1/4" plugs are Gaboon Ebony and the drawer pull blocks are Zircote. This was a very challenging...

  10. Scratch awl

    I made this a while back for my father for Father's Day. If it weren't for him I would not even know what a scratch awl was let alone it's many uses. Thanks Dad! Kingwood and the scratch awl kit from Rockler were used on this project.
  11. First Pen

    I'm deeply concerned that making this was so easy and enjoyable, that I might be looking at the beginning of an expensive addiction. My son has already asked for a pen made from deer antler. But that's a post for the future. This pen was a slimline made with Kingwood, both purchased through...
  12. Miniature Turned Goblets

    I find myself turning miniature goblets or small boxes (sometimes tiny) when I have a small piece of nice wood that would otherwise be scrap. The wood for these is as follows (left to right): 1- Bois de Rose 2- Tulipwood 3- Thin Win 4- Blackwood 5- Genuine Lignum Vitae 6- Pink Ivory 7- Sabah...
  13. Treasure Box I, II and III

    It has been a while since I posted anything. This is not a single project post but more of a series of projects, our Treasure Boxes. Each Treasure box series is composed of 4 boxes, I have finished and delivered the 1st of our 3rd series and I wanted to share with you our latest youtube video...
  14. Got Band-Aids? Porcupine Wood ‘N Pencil Holders

    The variety of color, texture, smell and figure in wood never ceases to amaze me. Many woods are so beautiful I can just stare at the grain for hours. Some I love to sand just to have a pleasant scent wafting through the air. And other woods beckon to be touched and worked. I wanted a sort of...

  16. Shop made smoothing plane

    Here's a little (big) smoothing plane I made recently. I wanted a nice high angle wooden smoother for tougher woods, and here is what I came up with. It is made of birch, kingwood, and sports a 3/8" thick ipe sole. The wedge is also kingwood, and like the front top edges of the sides, has just...
  17. Bottle Stoppers

    I made a these bottle stoppers for a craft sale held at my church. Left to right the woods are: olive, Kingwood, Bubinga, and Rosewood with Maple. I used a wipe on poly for all but the last one which has an epoxy finish. I hope to get $10 per stopper. I hope to turn a couple of pens and maybe...
  18. Mother and Sprout Jewelry Box

    Well, I had this big plank of yellowheart, and some great purpleheart, and thank goodness I stacked them together before I cut the wood - Whoh, it ain't even close to Easter! So back on the shelf went the purpleheart and I decided that the kingwood looked a lot better. The middle of the box is...
  19. Kingwood Pen

    This is my first kingwood pen. I like the multiple grain colors. This pen was finished with CA.
