  1. Walnut Bowls

    I was given several large branch sections from a recently felled walnut tree and asked to make some souvenirs of the tree for the owner and his neighbours. I rough-turned about 18 pieces back in May and have now been finishing some to present before Xmas. The first picture shows 3 standard-edge...
  2. Bocote Slab Floating Hallway Table

    A Asian inspired, floating top, bocote slab hallway table. Found an interesting slab at a wood store and had to have it! Modeled a hallway table after several variations that I liked and ended up wtih this. The legs are 8/4 walnut, tapered from the bottom to the top. the lower rail is a...
  3. Turning Schefflera

    Let me preface this by saying I'm a Northerner. Schefflera (I had to look up the spelling) is a house plant. Sometimes it gets pretty big but it's still a house plant. Now I'm gathering wood in Gulfport, FL, a great little city next to St.Pete, and getting all kinds of weird stuff I've never...

  6. Natural edge Bowl

    Oh how easy it is to get distracted from what we set out to do. I really need to clean-up the shop and garage and prepare for an event that my wife and I are hosting on Nov. 23. It's a big deal for my wife and inevitably people wander around and check out Ken's workshop. I just wouldn't do to...

  9. Mesquite Window table

    Thought I would try something different (really different). I was given a slab of mesquite by a friend and I thought it would make a great rustic or western style window display table. The pictures show the results. The top is inlayed with turquoise in some of the bigger holes and cracks...
  10. First bowl; spalted ambrosia maple

    I wish I could say I turned this bowl by myself but I had help. I met a man ( Les ) who hosts a local wood turners club at his shop. I have been interested in turning for a while and started asking around to see if there was a club. He allowed me in to his shop and even his house and showed me...
  11. *SOLD* Olive Burl Wine Rack

    I had a second piece of Olive and decided to make myself a wine rack that matched the Olive top Pub Table that I made last month. The top is Olive, the legs are Boire, the racks are Moabi, and the finish is teak oil. I am super pleased with the result. It's almost unfair using wood this...
  12. Natural Edge Coat Rack

    Back in October of 2009 as the wife and I were taking a drive through Rocky Mountain National Forest, we were shocked at the amount of forest that has been destroyed by the Pine Beetle. In some places entire mountain sides of trees had been killed by this beetle. There were large piles of logs...

  14. Natural Edge Bowl

    This is a little natural edge bowl from a pear tree my neighbor cut down last year. It is about 5" high and 5" in diameter. After sanding to 800 grit, they were sealed with lacquer sealer, then got 6 costs of poly. After about a week of curing time I buffed them with the Beall system and...
  15. Bradford Pear Natural Edge

    This is a natrual edge bowl I just finished up this past weekend. It is about 5-1/2" in diameter and was finished with Deft brush on semi-gloss lacquer buffed with 4/0 steel wool. Due to some heavy warping, I wasn't able to get the foot turned to how I wanted, but still pleased with it. All...
  16. Live Edge Coat Rack

    I made this live edge coat rack using a red cedar board. It's amazing how dull cedar looks until you put a finish on it. I tilted my bandsaw table at an angle to cut the ends so they would blend in with the natural edge. I also concealed the mounting holes underneath the coat hooks. Click...
  17. Recepie Boxes

    Here are 2 recepie boxes I made for Christmas gifts. The Walnut lid box is sized for 3×5 cards and the Maple, natural edged one is made to fit 5×7 cards. The boxes are constructed using simple miter joints and then I splined the miters in the top and bottom corners for reinforcement. I used...

  20. Karate Belt Rack

    Had inspiration to build a martial arts belt rack after seeing this one http://lumberjocks.com/projects/5369 posted. I build several for some very deserving families at my TaeKwonDo school in Wisconsin. I used reclaimed barn boards for as much as I could as that is what I like to do. :)...
