  2. The Whittler's Toolchest

    If you prefer not to read, video is here View on YouTube I have a family member (brother in law) that had mentioned to his wife that he wanted to begin doing finer woodworking. He's in general construction so he doesn't get much chance to make smaller finer items. So what better way to hone...

    This cutting board is 11 5/8" W x 19 3/8" L x 1 1/4" thick Made of Purple Heart base, rings and plugs from Yellow Heart, Padauk, Mora and Maple. This was a very challenging project that so far took me 2 weeks. I learned a lot doing this project, for one, the rings have to be perfect and glue...
  4. Mori Bowl

    This Guatemalan Mora bowl is the third bowl I have made as a relatively new turner. This is my first posting. My lathe is a Jet 1221 midi lathe. Mora is the hardest wood I have worked with (2,380 lbf on Janka scale) but in the end I am pleased with it. Finished with simple home made...
  5. My 1st Grease Box

    After looking at The Woodwrights Shop and seeing Roy Underhill make his grease box then looking at the ones made by MaFe and others here on lumberjocks, i decided to make one for myself.

    Three years ago my wife and I visited Zion National Park, Utah, USA for a few days during one of our touring holidays on the other side of the pond and one day after a nice hike, we stopped at Wildcat Willies in Springdale for some food. It was a welcoming place and I quickly made a new...
  7. Nightstand

    Nightstand, made of birch, cherry and mora. 17×17x20 size. Boiled lean seed oil and orange oil-bee wax finish. I made it for myself, but somebody would like to buy it. How much can I ask for it?
  8. First Bowl, Trial and Error

    So recently I've gotten into making wooden machines (more to come on that). This means making round parts and ultimately getting a lathe. Got the lathe with tools off of craigs list. Well I did the obligatory 'make the square stick round' as soon as I had it set up. What's the second thing...
  9. Mora Bowl

    I bought this piece of Mora as a Father's Day Gift for myself last year. I had the outside and the foot turned, flipped it to hollow it and a catch made the foot snap. There it sat alongside my lathe until last week when I decided it was time to get this piece finished. Re-turned (not to be...
  10. Spoons and Spatula

    Spoons have been on my "bucket list" for a long time, just never found the time. Lots of waiting time here lately so I broke down and ordered a couple of Mora curved knives. Really glad I did. I know I have to get the bowls a little thinner but the first ones have turned out fairly well and...

  12. Antler Handle Knife #2

    I arrived at home one day after work to find antlers piled high in front of the garage door - 3 elk, 2 moose, 2 white tailed deer, 1 mule deer. There was no note or any clue who dropped these antlers off. I narrowed the suspects down to one person who has a big heart and thinks he has a tall...

    Mora 164 Hook Knife - Why it Needs Help Well, it's January again. I don't do New Year's resolutions in the typical sense but I do tend to reflect on the previous year and evaluate things I could have done better. So I've decided it's time I gain some weight, get less exercise and drink more...
