  1. Scraper Shaves (from ShopNotes issue 112)

    Ok I just have way too much time on my hands, What a great thing! JasonD and Karson posted their versions of the scraper shaves from ShopNotes issue #112 and being the copycat that I am decided that I needed to make some of my own. I used oak for the insert and some mystery wood for the handles...
  2. Another Heron

    This is another Heron that I made. Another one is here in my projects. Not a set pattern, more like one I took from several different pictures and patterns of Herons Out of the two I have here on LJ's I think I like this one a bit better. After hanging and taking the pictures I saw that my...
  3. Intarsia Heron's

    Last month I made my second intarsia Heron for a girlfriend of mine in Southern Ca. She absolutely loves the bird (Heron). Awhile back I made my first one out of a piece of pine destined for our wood stove. When I saw the colors in this wood I thought this would be perfect for a "Blue Heron" I...
  4. A Christmas Thorsen Table!

    Just a view of my Thorsen Table adorned for the Christmas holiday. Show me what your Thorsen Table is being used for. Merry Christmas, everyone!
  5. Harmonica box with mini wood hinges

    This spalted mystery wood (maple?) was found on the bottom of a pallet. There wasn't much of the wood with the splated look, but I had the perfect small project for it. A little box. The sappy part of the story: Years ago my grandfather gave me a harmonica that belonged to his father. Not...
  6. Some more pens and a razor

    Busy weekend turning! First pen is blackwalnut (I think) slimline 24k gold hardware. Second pen is a bolt action pen for a co-worker. Third pen is marblewood, slimline 24k gold hardware. Not sure what the wood is on the fourth pen, 24k gold hardware. Fifth pen is pine with gun metal. I've...
  7. A different kind of Bandsaw Box

    I'm sure this has been done before, but I've never seen it. Just a different way of doing a bandsaw box, no drawer. The blank for this was actually the waste drawer cutout from a BSbox I made months ago! Guesses at the type of wood this is made of are welcome. The handle is of course black...
  8. Mother's Day Bowl

    I am very fortunate to have my mother in my life so this is a bowl that I've made for Mother's Day. It is from the same wood stock that I've been calling elm but it is probably better called mystery wood. It is a simple form that I seem to keep making but this one is a bit more refined that the...
  9. Mini Mystery Wood Bowl

    This small bowl was fairly quick and simple. It is in the same style as some of my other recent bowls. I've been doing some more involved pieces that are made of several parts and along with fitting the different elements together there is a period of time involved to allow the pieces to...
  10. Chunk-Wood Box

    This was an old chunk of wood that was laying around the shop-hiding-and this morning I decided it was a band saw box. Wished I had taken a "before" pic 'cause this thing was rough looking! Have no idea what kind of wood it is but it worked real good. Box measures 10"L x 5"W x 3"H and is...
  11. Mag-Bars

    I made these a few months ago as gifts. Now that they've all been given, I can post about them. I got the idea after seeing Benchcrafted "Mag-Bloks" and decided to try to make some myself. I picked up some random offcuts from a local wood place for a good price-cherry, walnut, red-oak, QS...
  12. Lucky number 13 bowl

    A 5×5x3 blank of some wood I had never heard of on Cook Woods website. It was on sale, so I figured "what the heck!" There was a soft spot in the wood, so when I started turning it, I lost about a third of the height. And the holes I put in mounting it on the face plate were too close to the...
  13. Neapolitan Box

    Box number 15 in my box building venture. I'm calling this one Neapolitan like the three flavored ice cream. This box is almost totally mystery wood reclaimed from a pallet. It was mostly yellow/green and very tight grained except for the figuring in the front panel. I also am not certain about...
  14. Mermaid, My personal A.K.A.

    I did not have a pattern for this I kinda just had a bunch of mermaid pictures and sorta just put her together using them all. She has been my avatar and A.K.A. on a couple places. I hold a special place for her in my heart as most of the wood on her came from the remains of a house fire. Her...
  15. Plane Shelf

    Simple dadoes and rebates reinforced with screws allowed me to create this storage project rather quickly. The planes just hang by bootlaces. This wood was very old and a joy to mill flat and join by hand. I gave some thought to shaping the bottoms of the sides to a curve but I ditched the...
  16. Rustic doll furniture

    My wife showed me a kinds catalog with a set of "woodland fairy furniture" for $80. I snorted, muttered "I could make that", rolled over and went to sleep. A few days later my wife asked me if I could make a dozen little chairs - like the ones in the catalog - for a art project at my daughter's...
  17. Eagle

    This is in my for sure top 5 favorite items I have made and I liked it sooo much and was so happy with the outcome that I took it with me to show my father in southern California 3 trips ago and I can't get it home. So this time I just gave up and took a picture of it.The original pattern was a...
  18. Days Till Huntin Season

    I made this to put up at work so they couldn't say "YOU DIDN'T TELL US!" .....NOT! You have seen this for MONTHS! Bu-bye! The #'s are changeable by the day.
  19. Mystery wood, live edge bowl

    This is a lovely piece of "mystery wood" that I picked up after the railroad people trimmed/cut some trees along some of the tracks that run through town. I have no idea what it is so I encourage you to give your best guess. It doesn't really turn worth a crap so I'll prolly see how the rest...
  20. Gavel - Turning Projects

    At the public library, I found a hard copy of A Course in Wood Turning (Archie S. Milton, Otto K. Wohlers). The book is a really quick read and some of the information is dated, but interesting nonetheless. The real value lies in the dozens of plates in the back of the book, which illustrate...
