  1. 4 Center Bowl

    We were asked to submit an off center project for the February guild meeting back in Michigan. So I made this 4 center bowl and will send it to a buddy to take to the meeting. It is made from 3 pieces of myrtle wood with turquoise inlay. The top grooves were cut on the lathe during boring and...
  2. Bowl and Napkin Rings

    These are some more desert turnings. The bowl is made from 2 pieces of myrtle wood and it had a spigot glued on to turn it so I did not lose any thickness of the good wood. It is 7" x 2 1/2" high. The napkin rings are for some friends back home that had me over for Christmas Eve dinner. Mary...
  3. RR Nets - Custom Wood Fishing Net Duo for Father/Brother Gift

    I apologize in advance for the amount of pictures here! I was asked a few months ago to build a set of semi-matching nets as a gift for a brother and father. After a few back and forth messages, we decided on the hoop shape, handle material and length. I was excited for these nets in...
  4. My 1st Bandsaw Box for my Daughter's BD

    I was surfing the net for a birthday project… and came upon several "Band Saw Box" pix. So, by just looking at the pix… This was my 1st effort at making a band saw box. I cut the top and scrolled my daughter's name into the top to personalize it. Put some pix in the drawers and a message...
  5. Turned Box

    Well I've been busy on the lathe lately and I decided to take another crack at my lathe turned box. My last one seemed to turn out ok, but after it sat for a few weeks I picked it up and tried to open it and it was stuck on. When the lid came off it did so with a loud pop and wouldn't go back...
  6. Tiger tail 1950's Sako .243 custom stock

    This family treasure was purchased new in the 50's by our grandfather in San Antonio Texas. It has since been passed down to our father and then my older brother. The stock was tired and well used. My brother commissioned me to re-stock it. I found this myrtle wood blank and went to shaping...

  10. First turned vase ever!

    Shortly after learning to turn, I decided to try a quick vase. This is made from an end grain block of Myrtle wood. I was given the piece of wood when I stopped to see another woodworker on a motorcycle trip thru B.C about 8 years ago. I was always wanting to do something nice with the wood, and...
  11. Cutting Board

    This was a cutting board that I made for my oldest daughters birthday. It took her months before she would even use it. The wood in this project was Epay, Brazilian Cherry, Brazilian Walnut, Hard Maple and Myrtle Wood. The board dimensions are 15 1/2×14 1/2 This board took me over a week to...
  12. PSI Shaving kit turned on lathe

    Had some myrtle wood leftover that was given to me by my wife's grandfather. So we chose to try out a new kit at PSI. Only problem is the brush stem diameter is smaller than the chrome cap diameter. And for some reason the superglue (CA) is not curing. The metal cap is optional, so next time...

  14. Wood & Lumber
    Hello Fellow Jocks! Came across an interesting pile of lumber at one of the local shops here in town and when I asked about it, was told it was Myrtle wood. The pile was apparently brought in to be used as flooring, but that didn't happen so now it's on the clearance rack. Some of it had some...

    Unusual Things you find as a burler! I was purchasing some myrtle wood from a guy and he cut into one log and what did he find in the middle? Take a look… It looked like it was a bowl from the 1930s. Check out nice burls at www.oregonburls.com!
  17. Wood & Lumber
    I was visiting friends over the weekend and was surprised to find out that the husband is a woodworker. He doesn't do a lot of projects but enjoys it a lot. He has all kinds of tools. He made loft beds and bunk beds for his boys, tables for his living room for his wife, built a deck around their...
