  1. Yesterday's Water

    This project is 18" tall and 8" wide at the base. It is made of myrtlewood and walnut. The most difficult part was the handle. I assembled and turned a single ring of walnut and then cut and reglued into the handle. The sanding on that was quite challenging. Hope you enjoy it and thanks for...
  2. Beneath a wave of wood

    This is my effort at going a little freeform after turning it on the lathe. It's made of myrtlewood and is 33" long and 10" at the widest. Has been sitting around in my shop, unfinished, for a couple of months, but I finaly got motivated over the past few days to finish it.
  3. Death Valley

    This is a box design I developed after much trial and error. I wanted to design a box that invited people to touch it and to pick it up. With no sharp corners, it must be smooth and it needed to have an organic flow about it. And it had to be simple in design to showcase the wood itself and...
  4. Box of myrtlewood

    Box of myrtlewood. I had a walnut finial on the lid but the proportion seemed "off." I removed the finial and am happier with the result.
  5. 'Dunes'

    The concept of this design was to mimic blowing, shifting sand, wanting to convey a sense of movement. The shaping is intentionally softened, gently rolling one ridge into the next valley, and so on, for a natural feel. I am very pleased with the effect. Thanks for looking and for any votes that...
  6. Keepsake Urn

    This is a keepsake urn. A cousin of my co-worker, Lori, passed away and upon seeing her obvious pain, I volunteered to make an urn for the cremains. I dug out a special piece of figured Myrtlewood I had been saving and started working on a design. After doing research online, I found that the...
  7. Dust Storm

    I made this box for my daughter-in law, Jenna, as an anniversary gift. The body is Bloodwood, also called Satine, and the medallion and handle are Myrtlewood. The splines and dividers are Maple. The finish is lacquer. The center picture is not very clear but I posted it anyway to show how I...
  8. DuneScape Box #1

    This is the first Art Box in the "Dunescape" series, which are so named because of the desert scene in each medallion. People express wonder at the picture in each piece,they are 3D in depth and resemble sand dunes, rivers, rocky beaches, or Old World maps. The sides are Western Curly Maple and...
  9. My favorite wood combinations

    Hello all! This is my first post. I've come across lumberjocks so many times and have seen so much good work that I wanted to share a little bit of what I do and the woods I like to work with. Cheers! Woods in order of pictures: Myrtle wood / Black lamination / Mahogany back / Burled Wenge...
  10. *update* on Christmas ornaments (up to 85 now)

    So here are 85 ornaments, shaped and most of them (like 90-95%) all have their backings glued on (i think just the moose and a cardinal or two don't). I have 9 other ornaments i need to shape which brings my total to 94. If I am feeling well tonight I will go to the woodshop and see if I can...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. Just joined, am I the only pool cue builder here?

    Here is a cue I finished recently with a California myrtle burl handle and spalted western maple. Both woods I stabilized to make them suitable. Cue is full cored with a purpleheart dowel

  15. Tiger Stripe Myrtle Hiking Staff

    I was sifting through the lumber area of the Myrtlewood Gallery in Reedsport, Oregon last winter when I came across this highly figured staff blank. The price was right less than $20.00 so I got it. I roughed it out with hand tools at the Craft Center (University of Oregon) wood shop where I...
  16. Myrtlewood Box

    This is a myrtlewood box that I turned. It is about 3" x 2". Finished with lacquer.
  17. Figured I'd Try Pens

    I've been turning wood for a little over a year now and I figured I'd try pen turning. Of course I started with a slimline but I couldn't resist a nicer pen. The Retro Jr. is made from Yucatan Rosewood with copper plating. The slimlines are Myrtlewood and Yew. I gave these out as gifts, but...
  18. Lumber rack, for under 25 dollars.

    Hi folks, there are many lumber rack designs out there, some use black pipe ($$), some incorporate a roller mechanism to make it easier to load/unload (the first piece of lumber only), some are fixed to a wall (tranferring long term loads into the wall). But none are as easy to build, flexible...
  19. Trish's Board

    This was made for Trish, a good friend who needed a replacement for her old in-cabinet model. I just snapped a quick picture so I could remember the pattern. It fits in a slot in the base cabinet, the walnut front edge is curved and hangs below the board which serves as a finger pull. The size...
