  1. A Unique Shade

    Alright I know that this is glass and not wood, but I am in the process of making the lamp and I wanted to share this major accomplishment with all of you. This is my first stained glass piece and like all of my other firsts this one was a small project that turned out huge. I am making the...

    This is my first post, here is some of my amateur woodturning. 1st pic - bowl made of arizona alligator juniper, turns like red cedar maybe a little softer. 2nd pic - bowl made of gambel oak, very hard and dense, dang that torn end grain, gotta go much slower next time. 3rd pic - cookie jar...
  3. Jack Daniels lamp with scrol lsaw shade

    A quick project for my oldest son who likes Jack Daniels and hates shoes. $9.00 lamp kit and some scrap Baltic birch plywood (1/8") and a custom lamp….The flip flops is a Steve Goode design (that can hold a mini clock insert on the right flip flop….but my wife said that would be overkill….
  4. Lamp Shades

    This started out as one of those relaxing weekend projects. I actually had a day to do some woodworking for myself instead of for clients. The lamp shades on a couple of our floor lamps had been damaged in a move, so I thought I'd spend an afternoon building new shades. Recently, several...

  7. WOOT Pt. 3

    Since the Wifes out of town… I decided to turn a lamp shade from maple, I think it came out pretty good. In fact, when I turned of the lathe so I could see what it was looking like, I noticed the fire pattern and almost soiled myself. All comments are welcome, thanks for checking it out.

So around here there are numerous old stumps that look old and weathered, had one on the corner of my property so I cut it up for turning stock. It was very pitchy and sticky and def. not ideal wood for much. but after making a small...

    I caught this on tonight's CBS News Webpage. Quite interesting so I thought I would share: Making of a Shade from Soren Berger on Vimeo.
  10. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am working on a coffee table for my living room inspired from a drawing in Home Furniture Magazine. They did a write up on Tage Frid and they have pictures of a coffee table in the write up. I did a web search and found that the table was written up in Fine woodworking issue #98. Does...
