  1. Trivet

    Some trivets. The woods are marblewood, purpleheart, cocobolo, and pine. For the hardwood trivets, I used some different slate tiles that I picked up from Lowes.
  2. Design by Music

    I was asked by a woman to design a Cheese/Breadboard to the music of the band "Train" and this is what I came up with. Their music is honest, deep and some references to space, so the Black Walnut reminds me of the solar system and the different colors of the type of music in their songs. It is...
  3. Trinket / Jewerly Boxes

    Inspired by Andy's tutorial on box making I decided to use up some of the small pieces of exotic woods I had laying around. What fun! The first one I made using Lace Wood for the box, Marble wood for the lid and oak bottom. The second one is Lace wood for the box, Blood wood for the lid and an...
  4. 3 broncos

    they are a great toy for kids or a collection model.
  5. Purpleheart and Marblewood Chess board

    A few years ago, my mother bought a chess set that had "Revolutionary War" chess pieces. She asked me to make a chess board for her and this Christmas (2011) I finally made it. The two woods are Purpleheart and Marblewood. The squares are 1 1/4" and that makes the entire board (including...
  6. Pentagon Bowls

    Here are a couple of pentagon shaped bowls that I turned recently. The first is Marblewood, it has a 6 inch diameter at its widest point and is 3 inches in height. The second is Jatoba, it is 6 inches in diameter and 2 inches in height. They are both finished with several coats of Tru-oil...
  7. Marblewood Cheese Slicer

    This is a cheese slicer I made as a Christmas gift. The wood is marblewood. I was originally planning to try some inlay in the piece, but the wood grain pattern seemed too beautiful to try to add anything to, so I let it stand on its own. I was inspired to make this after seeing SPalm's cheese...
  8. Tornado fund raiser donation

    Made this CB to help the Tornado fundraiser. The pattern kind of reflects the disarray that the tornado caused this area. It is made up of Black Walnut, Paduck, Shedua,Yellowheart,European Beech,Purpleheart,Marblewood, Santos Mahogany, Goncalo Alves,Bubinga,Bloodwood. I used salad bowl finish...
  9. Cutting Board donation

    Donating this Cutting Board to be auctioned off to raise money to help kids with reading difficulties. It is 12×12 x1-5/8 thk and made from Shedua, Hard Maple, Bubinga, European Beech, Macawood, Black Walnut, and Marblewood. I sealed it with Salad Bowl finish and finished it with mineral...
  10. Some more pens and a razor

    Busy weekend turning! First pen is blackwalnut (I think) slimline 24k gold hardware. Second pen is a bolt action pen for a co-worker. Third pen is marblewood, slimline 24k gold hardware. Not sure what the wood is on the fourth pen, 24k gold hardware. Fifth pen is pine with gun metal. I've...
  11. Marblewood and Poplar Bandsaw Box

    September, 2011-I glued up this blank almost 2-years ago. I cut the blank of marblewood on an angle and inserted a slab of poplar. Just something a little different. This box has one drawer. Nothing special at all in construction technique. Just a typical band saw box. Soda can in the last...
  12. Pens for a Craft Show

    Here's a group of pens that I made for a craft show last week. All are either Slimline or European style. When I have all of them together like this, I can really tell that I've been improving. The woods used are marblewood (pretty sure), maple, padauk, african blackwood, oak, and a few...
  13. First bowl

    I purchased a 6"x6"x3" Marblewood blank last spring and finally turned my first bowel. It's just a simple candy bowl, but I'm happy with it. I sanded to 600 grit and finished it on lathe with my home brew version of O.B.'s shine juice. Easy peasy! Done just in time to be under the tree on...
  14. Large Marblewood Band Saw Box

    February, 2012-This is a piece of sapele sandwiched between two pieces of marblewood. This is one of the largest band saw boxes I have made to date. And it is heavy! The marblewood is very dense and a challenge to cut with my 3/16ths blade on my band saw. But in the end I am very happy with...
  15. Testing my patience Cutting Board

    My wife's cousin wanted me to make her a CB, except she couldn't makeup her mind. She wanted a 12" x 12"x 3/4 thk CB with rubber feet and brown woods(first two pictures), so I made this one, but she thought it was too small, so she wanted a 12"x 14" x 1-1/4 thk with colored woods, so here is the...

    Here is a hollow form that I completed in late 2011. The base is Cherry, and the lid is Marblewood and Chechen. The overall height is 8 inches and it is finished with a wipe-on poly. Thanks for looking.
  18. Cheeseboards

    I had some leftover wood from my last two CB's so I made two cheeseboards. The one on the left is made from Paduck, Black Walnut, Hard Maple, Yellowheart, Purpleheart, and Hickory. The handles are made from Purpleheart. It is 12 × 8×1-5/8 thk and sealed with salad bowl finish and finished with...
  19. Tesoro escondida (Hidden Treasure)

    This box is made from Marblewood and Purpleheart. When I began it, I had plans to take the grinder to it and make it one of my sculpted boxes but as it began to take shape it began to feel like maybe I shouldn't sculpt it. Once I added the Purpleheart plugs it began to feel sorta Aztec to me...
  20. November Turnings

    Just posting a few of my recent lathe projects that I made for Christmas gifts. Just your run of the mill project kits from Rockler and Woodcraft. My family and friends love when Christmas comes around. By now, they just expect gifts from my wood shop each year. These have been a nice break...
