  1. Carved Elk Button ,Diamond Willow Hiker

    The Mountian Lion was carved into a spur on the elk button [what's a elk button ?] . There wasn't enough of the little spur to carve both sides of the face but I think I like the way it turned out better . When you turn the the stick you kind of discover the mountain lion hiding there. The elk...
  2. Hat Making Tool: Leather Sweat Band Decorative Groove Marking Tool for Vintage Looking Custom Hats

    This custom designed Hat Making Tool was a commissioned item, and has been SOLD. ------------------------- I've been pretty busy the past few weeks working on Maloof-Inspired rocking chairs, and since they aren't finished yet, I've not posted much for projects lately. I did take a break from...
  3. A Box

    (first of all, I made this on Thursday, PRE bandsaw/routers/blah blah blah). Thursday, things just weren't going as planned so I was sitting at home doing not much of anything and I thought: "I want to make a box. Just a box. Any box." And so I did. I decided that because it is my box that I...
  4. Fancy Cane #2

    A second go at turning and shaping a cane. The top 1/3 of the shaft and the handle where hand shaped ,the bottom of the shaft was turned. The walnut shaft is part of a garage sale find , I have only 2 pieces left now [rats]. I chose lace wood for the handle for it's dark colour to match the...
  5. Molesworth inspired vanity

    Some of you might recognize this piece. It is based on the "cowboy sideboard" project by Norm (inspired by Molesworth) with a few major variations. First of all, I chose to keep the front flat instead of canted back at an angle. I replaced the routered door panels with ostrich leather. And...
  6. Cherry and Leather Mallet

    I really wanted to call this post a second attempt at a first mallet, but grammatically, that just doesn't make a great deal of sense. However, that is what this project is. Several months ago, I attempted, and I suppose to some extent I succeeded, in building a mallet. In what seems almost like...
  7. Fireplace bellows

    I have made many (50) of these functioning and decrotive fireplace bellows over the past 20+ years. I make them of wood from pallets mostly. I inlay the tooled leather on the front and turn the handels and nozzle end on a lathe. They are 15" long and 7 " across.
  8. Stitching Pony

    I've been building a few things out of leather lately and quickly discovered that 2 hands are not enough when it comes to hand stitching. Found lots of designs online and settled on my own variation that is designed to be held in vice or it could be clamped to a table or bench. In time I could...
  9. Executive desk

    This desk was designed with alder and walnut. There are copper panels, front, back and sides. It also has a leather inlay for the top. It was moved from the studio to the county road on a trailer pulled behind a snowmobile, as I do not have winter access to my cabin. Still trying to keep it...
  10. Type AB Cutting Board

    Another gift for my lover. This was a pretty quick and simple project, a 7"x10" pine cutting board/serving board. Cheese and crackers, peanut butter sandwich, etc. It's my first cutting board. The medallion is a 1" dia. poplar dowel stained with my blood (my 1/2" bench chisel is deeply...
