  1. Projects Morado Bowl

    This 5.5x2” bowl is known as Bolivian Rosewood or Morado. Unknown actual name but it appears comes from South America and the wood has extremely high oil content.

I used maple as a base wood with morado rosewood (I think it's part of the rosewood family) for the...

  8. New Wood Box with a Surprise

    I was out of a project so thought a wood box using as much lumber as already had would be fun. The materials on hand largely determined the box size. 13.25" x 10" x 3.25" tall. I had not done blind dovetails since 2019 for my jewelry box project that is posted on this site. Had a piece a...

  15. Morado coasters

    I picked up a piece of morado from the scrap bin at a wood store and was intrigued by the sharp contrast between the sapwood and heartwood. Each coaster is made of four strips, placed in an alternating pattern. The join lines are just about invisible. Special Note 1: I couldn't do my normal...

    It is that time again; time to make Christmas gifts for the kids. These are made from a kit that features a bering on the axle. It takes a little practice, but the bering make it much easier to to tricks. In addition to getting Christmas gifts out of the way, I found this to be a great skill...

  19. My Marking Gauge

    My toddlers have these jumbo pencils that make it easy on little developing hands to hold and write. As I watched them, it came to me how uncomfortable my tite mark gauge was on my figers. It feels awkward trying to mark boards because the stem is so thin and the round knife is hard to keep...
