  1. Oak & Mountain Laurel table

    This is a table I finished last night. A couple of years ago, a large oak tree was threatening my cabin, so we took it down. Aside from the largest piece near the base that I adzed flat for a rough bench along the front path, I chopped and split it for firewood… except for one piece that...

  3. Butcher Block Stool

    154 pieces of wenge, walnut, cherry, and laurel. Hand carved and mounted on some handmade bent steel legs. And a demon. :P
  4. Some more boxes

    Here are some more boxes I have turned. From left to right: Black Locust, Maple, Myrtle, Laurel, and the one up front I think is maple but not sure. I have really gotten into turning boxes. They are quick and fairly easy. Also they make nice gifts. My wife loves them for rings and other jewelry.
  5. back on the cutting board bandwagon

    Could not seem to stop making these quilted cutting boards - they gave me an excuse to try out my new planer :D Made a cutting board for each of my daughters. Used maple, cherry, walnut, pecan and a little bay laurel. I was going to go with straight edges, but I started to like the "pinking...
  6. Quilt gift for my brother

    I was inspired by a local woodworking artist/friend who made a "quilt" cutting board for his wife. I'm also inspired by Steve's amazing 3D boards but I wasn't brave enough to try them… yet. My equipment is small and very limiting so this is my second cutting board ever - the first was done 25...
  7. An Automated Box

    This box was inspired by the work of George W. Betjemann and Sons who were prominent case makers in London in the mid-19th century. I want to mention also Daniel Lucian, proprietor of Daniel Lucian Antique Boxes in London, who was kind enough to share valuable insights and information about the...

  9. Art Deco grease box

    Just as you thought that grease boxes were for plaid-clad, pipe-smoking rustic types here is one for turtle-neck and beret-wearing artisans. Featuring an Art Deco grease box with curved dovetails made from scraps of maple, lyptus, and Carpathian elm and laurel burl veneer. A little history. In...
  10. "Rustic Reader" Desk Lamp

    I just finished this desk lamp last night. The base and top are reclaimed American Chestnut log slabs that I salvaged during renovation of my cabin, and the upright is mountain laurel with the wiring hidden inside using my usual "secret" method. Inside the upper part are four rows of 5050 LED...
  11. Retro Pen Kit

    Here is a "Retro" pen kit from Woodcraft. I used some spalting Laurel for the wood blanks to turn the pen. I used CA glue and wax for the finish. This was a gift for my oldest son's first day attending a local community college. Thank you for looking! Here is a video link to making this...
  12. "Intertwined" - Mountain Laurel Root Twig Wall Lamp

    This lamp is named "Intertwined". Made from the roots and lower stem of a mountain laurel bush, uprooted during train maintenance. When I saw the color of the exposed roots while hiking, I knew I had to make a lamp of it. Mounts with one hidden screw in a keyhole slot (cut into the central...
  13. Matching Bathroom Vanities

    We did a pair of his and hers bathroom vanities with a beautiful veneer. Called Cinnamon Laurel Burl, it is a great looking wood. We got it from Certainly Woods, out of New York. The designs came from Tommi at K Gallery Art and Design. Her work is a joy to build, due to the great looking...
  14. Aromatic asian laurel burl pen.

    This is a pen I finished this afternoon. Worked on it on and off during the day as I needed a break to rethink how I was building my thickness sanders frame. Hopefully that Project will be finished in the next few days. Eventually I will get a good camera again but sadly so much wood and tools...
  15. Chestnut & Laurel side table

    I picked up this scrap of reclaimed American Chestnut floorboard at a local reclaimed lumber seller. It has (so the guy told me) an interesting story. A car ran into an old house in the next town from mine, causing enough structural damage that the building was deemed not worth repairing…...
  16. Black Ash (I think) and Laurel chair side table

    The local reclaimed lumber place has a couple of barrels outside, where they sell scraps they deem not good for anything but firewood. They ask $10 for as much as you can fit in a wheelbarrow, all proceeds to the local soup kitchen. Those scraps may not be enough to remodel a house, but...
  17. Focus on the Workspace
    I am about to start the process of building the 21st Century workbench and while in the planning phase, I have also been thinking a lot about my shop and how it is set up. You can see its current state in my workshop pics and here is a Sketchup model that pretty accurately shows the placement...
  18. Blogs
    A Cupcake Stand Hi Jocks! I had been wanting to make another quick project so out to the shop I went and made another cupcake stand. This one is for my oldest daughter who just completed a cake decorating class. Hopefully this will be a good motivator for her to make some nicely decorated...

    Turning a Retro Pen Kit I made this pen for my son for his first day attending a local community college. I also made a video of the project. Here it is and I hope that you enjoy. Thanks for watching!
