  4. Projects Bread Slicer

    My wife finally (after 37 years of marriage) that she wanted to do a project with me in the shop and learn some more woodworking skills. She's always been available to help me, but this time she took the lead and designed and built this bread slicer. It's made from walnut and maple. It works...
  5. Woodcarving
    Was given a piece of maple burl that had a lot of character in the wood. Very fragile and it was a challenge to carve the boot. Finished with several coats of shellac. Enjoy the project.

    I was given the opportunity to test a new blank for someone on another site. He sent out blanks to about 10 of us. This is the result of my test. It is dyed/stableized Maple. It was finished with CA then buffed. I splurged on a $19.99 photo tent/light kit to try and improve my photos so...

    I made these for an old neighbor some time ago, Cherry, Jatoba, Maple, Walnut and Moradillo, double sliding dovetails on the end boards.
  12. End Grain Top, A true labor of love

    I have had the opportunity to build several, end grain, butcher block cutting boards when a close friend asked if i could make a counter top for a kitchen island. The process is the same, but it is considerably more work to build a larger top…especially in a small shop like mine. I was...
  13. Bonfire

    This is what I hope to be the first in a long line of my new projects. This is what I would call my first "artsy" piece (as in I designed it more for looks than function). The title derives (for obvious reasons) from the "flame" maple and the red of the padauk. I decided to overstate the...

  16. Windsor Legs, Posts -- Don't Give Up Hope!

    Well, since I've been running around the world, quite literally, haven't had much time to get back on the Windsor pony and get to my Boston side chairs. I did, however, get back into the shop over T-giving and finished up turning the legs and side posts for the two chairs I'm building to go...

    This side table was designed totaly from scratch by me and my wife for the art gallery it will be going in.

  19. More pens (and a little story)

    Fortunately for me, a lot of the work I do really helps people who need it. In this case, it was my grandson. He had a little (?) problem with school and authority and was rapidly going down hill. For those of you who know kids in that situation I highly recommend the National Guard Youth...
