  1. One Ugly Bandsaw Box

    Here's my first attempt at building a bandsaw box. I used a log from one of the water oaks in my back yard; it's about 4.5 inches in diameter. The log also has a little bit of spalting in it. I covered the whole thing with some poly. It turned out rather ugly, but it was a still a fun weekend...
  2. Rustic Aspen Bench

  3. Jewelry racks, primitive and rustic

    I get quite a few requests for custom jewelry racks for people who sell jewelry at vendor shows. But some of my racks get used at home too. (Remember these David? LOL) I use cut nails - predrill then pound in the nails. The paint job is my own prim finish. Layer the paint, sand to distress...

  11. Custom Jigsaw Puzzle

    Kids have so many toys these days, it's very hard for a grandpa to know what to get for a five-year-old's birthday. My solution is to make something for my grandchildren, and give them a little cash along with that so they can buy whatever toy they might want. This year the gift is a jigsaw...
  12. Yard art - reindeer made from logs

    This fella is about 2 feet tall. I understand that cutting trees in the winter means the bark may stay attached, so hopefully that will be the case. I drilled mostly 3/4 inch holes and carved tenons to fit all the pieces together. The carving was easy since it was done right after I felled...
  13. lodge stlye rustic sideboard

    I built this sideboard with a matching hutch to go in an Idaho art gallery. The pine legs are from dead standing trees. I like these because the surfaces are covered with insect tracks and knots. The real nature of the forest shows up. I use Alder for the box and doors. It is also a local wood...

    For a long time now my daughters have been using sawhorses to put saddles on and play that they are riding horses.

  17. Log Reindeer for My Sister

    My sister is a sucker for Christmas kitsch. She saw one of these at an antique market and decided her brother needed a project. I had a ton of fun making it and trying to get the proportions somewhat correct. Just walk through the woods for material and use a drill with a spade bit. I used a...

  19. Door stop turned on a "dam" lathe

    My Dad had this log in his house as a door stop. He had picked it out of lake in Canada. It was truning at the top of a dam for same time. It looks like a piece of fire wood, he did have one that was almost a perfect sphere. A new spin on green turning LOL
  20. Natural Band Saw Box From A Log

    February, 2010-After some heavy duty pruning on a bush out back, I figured I could turn a chunk of it into a band saw box. Well, I did it! Not sure i would want to do many more of these, but I learn a thing or two doing this. For instance, the darker brown color is exactly how the wood looks...
