  4. Side table Christmas present

    My 15 year old granddaughter wanted a Kate Spade table for Christmas - the 4th picture. It was made of metal and frosted glass and retailed for over $2000.

  6. Remember the Movingui Gloat?

    About 4 weeks ago I posted a wood gloat. Mostly I needed some input from the LJ's on what I really had. I had never worked with this Curly Movingui and did not know what I could expect. I received great interest and information. Thanks to all. I will create a blog for this project and post...

    This is one of my new pieces it is made movingui , the metal going through the wood is aluminum and the base is steel. I love the fig. of the movingui and how the metal and the wood change with the light .
  9. Movingui Picture Frame

    I made this frame for a painting my wife made a few years ago. I found some 8/4 movingui and used bloodwood for the splines. Finish is blond shellac over BLO. This is my first project I have made with my Laguna combination machine. It is also the first time I've used a shaper, and the last...

  11. Four Footed & Lidded Ash and Sapele Vessel

    Almost another piece in the Three Legged Dog Series but this ash vessel has four feet. It is turned from ash and also has three piths/branches running through it. It is a very straight forward piece and the ash cut very easily. The sapele lid is topped with a small cap of spalted ash which in...

  13. Adjustable, Collapsible, Classical Guitar Footrest

    Used for obtaining correct position, posture, and comfort playing in the classical style. I copied the design from a commercial Cordoba version (that may have copied an old ironing board) The adjustable notches provide for use with different seat heights. Wood is 4/4 Movingui that is so hard I...
  14. Another brick cuttingboard

    .... actually there were 3. The wood is Movingui (brick) and Hickory (mortar). My 1st thought when I saw the Movingui at the local wood store was 'I have to do a brick board with this" The soft yellow colour reminded me of the yellow brick farm houses where I grew up in SW Ontario … then of...

  17. Banging out Boxes!

    I'm having a good time, trying all sorts of boxes lately. I've completed a few more and thought I'd post. I don't really crank them out that fast. I can make most of a box in a day, complete the fabrication the next day, and then three days or so to finish. I have tried hinged lids, lift off...
  18. Wood & Lumber
    So, I recently purchased one of the 10 lbs. Exotic Cutoff Boxes from Rockler and was wondering if some of you more familiar with exotics could help me identify some of them. I think I know a few of them. The top left looks to be Wenge with maybe some Zebrawood below that. Then the red one I...
  19. Blogs
    Working with Movingui A few weeks ago I posted a wood gloat about some wood I had acquired. The real purpose of the posting was to pick the brains of the LJ's to see what I really had. I received wonderful input which put me on the trail to information about Curly Movingui. None who wrote had...
  20. Wood & Lumber
    I was just taking a break from the shop while glue is setting up on a few things and thought I put a couple of pictures on here. The first 2 red ones are 2 blocks of Flame Box Elder I just won (bought) off Ebay pretty reasonable. This is the redist color I have ever seen in a wood. I have made...
