  1. Yes, it's a box; I think, but maybe not your cup of tea?

    We were struggling to come up with an idea for a 21st birthday present for a nephew who has almost everything. This was the result - a wacky container for his small change. We think he liked it. Lift the spoon and the lid lifts along with it. I think the cup and saucer were laburnum and the...
  2. Prime Mover

    Except for my lay up through health problems you may have noticed the lack of projects from me well this is what I have been working on. This has been built for a woodworking magazine article. This took longer than expected due to the health problems, but I was not going to give in. I had a...
  3. Small Box

    I have been working on this in between doing other bits today that is after the one where the lid decided to do the splits. Made from London plane with a Laburnum insert in the lid it stands 2 3/4" X 2 1/4". Still need to make 4 more well there is always tomorrow.
  4. Recent turnings

    The first hollow form I think is birch. It was dyed ala Trifern procedure with black, red and yellow finished with multiple coats of wipe on poly. Total height is around 4.25 inches. Number two I think is a piece of cottonwood that was given to me, height is 9 inches. The dye is black and...
  5. My 1st Natural Edge Bowl, in Laburnum.

    This is my 1st ever Natural Edge piece. It's about 4.5 inches diameter, and about 2.75 inches deep at its deepest point. I would have liked to have gone a little thinner in the walls, but with a few cracks starting to appear when hollowing out, even though I flooded them with CA, I decided to...
  6. Vase

    Not really sure what name to give this. Anyway just finished this vase which stands 9" tall the bottom is maple and covered with chemically treated brass sheets and the top I believe is Laburnum. It did start out as being a vase but I had ideas for different decoration then I got the brass...
  7. Laburnum Candlestick with quratered Base of Cherry & Mahogany

    This Candlestick stands a little over 6 inches tall, and the Base is 3 inches in diameter. The Laburnum was given to me back in January by a friend who cuts trees. The log had quite a few splits in it so I cut it into spindles, sealed the ends, and left it to continue drying. The base I glued...
  8. A "Lidded Box" in Yew, with a Laburnum finial

    This was my 2nd attempt at making this project, the 1st had a crack deep inside the wood & the Lid section broke while turning it. I used the bottom part as a "Pin Pot", so the project wasn't a total failure. This piece stands about 4 1/2" tall, including the finial.
  9. Woodcarving
    Hi everyone, I'm new to this carving scene. I've recently bought a 6ft rough cut log of Laburnum, I'm carving some coffee table legs out of it but don't want to wait for years for it to dry and cure. It was felled a couple of months ago, so is still fairly fresh. Am I right in thinking that I...

I'm quite lucky in that I have a few friends who work cutting trees, so getting freshly cut timber isn't much of a problem, and getting...
