  1. Candy-Nut Dish

    I started out intending to produce another checkerboard candy dish, but could not get 12 segments out of the remaining Myrtle-Redwood combination that I had on hand. So I filled in with three segments of Satinwood and hope someone will like it at the craft show. The base is Monterillo and the...
  2. First Bandsaw Bowl

    After seeing the beautiful Bandsaw bowls by Ronald Fontenot Jr. I made a first attempt at using the technique myself. I still have a long way to go but I was happy with the first effort and will certainly make more bowls using the bandsaw technique. I made use of some spare strips of various...
  3. damascus spatula

    I forged this pattern-welded damascus spatula for my Mom's birthday gift. I offered her a knife or any other thing I could forge, and this is what she chose. Never made one before, it was lots of flattening work with a cross pein hammer and a ton of grinding. 1080 and 15n20 steel, hardened...

  10. Myrtle Burl bowl

    Picked up this myrtle burl blank somewhere. Can't remember where but finally got around to turning it. I like the way it turned out. It's got color and grain variations and the bottom looks pretty good too. It's 2 7/8" tall by 6 1/2" at the base and a little under 6" at the top. Sanded to...

  12. Myrtle Bowl and Pine Bowl

    I've been doing cabinetry since I was 14. That's 12, almost 13 years. It paid my way through college, as well as law school. However, I only have experience with turning a single project - a lamp when I was 15. Effectively, I am a novice when it comes to a lathe, and I am learning a whole lot...

  14. Segmented Candy/Nut Dish

    This little bowl is made from Bloodwood and Oregon Myrtle. The base is Australian Blackwood. When I first ordered Myrtle I was not very happy with the color and my wife was particularly negative. But when you have 10 board feet you can't just let it go to waste. By chance I combined it with...

  16. Cutting Boards

  17. Austrailan Myrtle burl bowl

    This started out as a nasty, black, warped blank I saw at WoodCraft. Kept looking, kept passing over at a price of $30. When it finally went on sale for half price I decided to pick it up … and WOW, am I glad I did! The lighting here doesn't do justice to the beautiful rose color of the wood...

  20. Myrtlewood Burl table

    I feel a bit guilty calling this a "new project". Can I say it's new to Lumberjocks? The truth is I bought this slab of wood, along with 6 other slabs, right after it was cut in 1977 and made the table in 1986 While the wood was drying in Oregon some beetles got into the sap wood. I could...
