  2. Dyed and Limed Oak Picture Frame

    Another Christmas present finished up. This frame is made with bridle joints and was finished with two coats of ebony black aniline dye followed by a coat of shellac and then Liberon's Liming wax. First time using the wax and I'm pretty happy with it.

    Granny Blues is turned from a Pin Oak tree harvested recently by a client. His grandmother planted this tree many years ago. I was commissioned to create some pieces from Granny's tree. I turned a couple of bowls and this hollow form vessel. It measures approximately 7.25 inches tall by 5.5...

    This is turned from catalpa and measures 3.5" tall by 6.25" wide. It is finished with leather dye, lacquer, liming wax, and Briwax. It is really tough to photograph.

  8. Cherry Hall Tree

    I thought I would share a project that I completed for my wife for Christmas. It is a coat tree or hall tree made of cherry. The coat hooks are actually made from horseshoes that I cut in half and welded onto home-made bracket. I've incorporated levelers on the base in order to even things...

    A couple years ago, I was foolish enough to show my friend a neat looking tool I had seen in a pawn shop and talked him into buying it.
