  1. Turned Olivewood Candle Holder

    So, the sled that I built for my bandsaw made it easy to mill some lumber out of logs, including a big chunk of olive. The main pieces were quite wet, but some of the offcuts were from limbs that were dead on the main log long before the tree was felled. One of those offcuts was large enough...
  2. Retracting Headboard

    Our house is super tiny, so we're constantly looking for places to use a little more space. We like a little room/cabinet at the headboard, and have armoires on either side of the bed, so we figured that a headboard that rose up out of that space would give use room for another shelf, and still...
  3. Five More Pens

    It was too hot in the barn for working so I rolled out my new lathe stand turned 5 pens out on the east side of the barn later when the sun went way west!. Two are African Blackwood, two are Mesquite and one is Olive wood.They are finished with EEE and Shellawax. The new Delrin bushings I made...
  4. Too Much Circles (flask)

    As a bonus for the 2022 Bowling League Swap, I made a flask. It's constructed of white oak, curly cherry, and ash (for the stopper), with bits of olive, red oak and something else I don't remember in the smallest circles. It holds about a U.S. pint (half litre). The name comes from one of the...
  5. Butterfly Bandsaw Box

    We had my granddaughter's 5th birthday party over the weekend. Her and her mom were talking about how she's collected lots of little jewelry and she really needed a jewelry box to keep the "good" jewelry seperate from the "play" jewelry. So, I started looking around at jewelry boxes that were...
  6. Olive wood goblet

    I've always wanted to do something with a piece of olive. I bought this log on ebay (picture 6), and when it arrived, I couldn't decide what to do with it. ANOTHER GOBLET IT IS!!! This makes my third goblet, and my eleventh turning species thus far. I'm turning into a woodaholic. I'm very fond...
  7. Turned Olive Pen and Magnifying glass set

    This is a set I did for a friend in the UK. I wanted to do a bit of customization to the work, so had some intermediate pictures that he had made suggestions as to what he wanted it to have. The second pic shows the first rounding of the magnifying glass handle, via twitter I was able to get...
  8. Knot Just Bookends

    So. I've finally finished my entry for the competitions. I don't expect to win, but I decided early on to give it my best shot - I didn't decide on the shooting weapon however, and it looks like I used a water pistol! More info on some thought processes in this blog. Anyway - bookends - we...
  9. Olea europaea (European Olive) Live Edge Bowls

    I picked up a couple of hunks of Olive wood from one of the guys in my turning club. He used to live in Northern California so I assumed that they were European Olive (Olea europaea). However, my wife thinks that it's Russian Olive (Elaeagnus augustifolia). Unfortunately, I didn't get any...
  10. "Second wind"

    As my mother would have said - this piece of olive was "fait a la mao", which I think was supposed to mean "hand made". When we first moved into this house in Portugal 5 years ago, we had to chop down a "dead" olive tree - it has since regrown into a fine, if multi-, upstanding citizen. This was...
  11. Delete?

    Anyone else have trouble deleting projects?...
  12. Snowman ornament

    Cut this little guy from more olive wood. It stands about 3" tall and is smooth as glaaaasssssss. I'm going to make quite a few of these guys for the fam.
  13. Incense burner

    Not sure this is worthy of "project" status, but the person to whom I'm going to give it might wonder, if I didn't post it, why not. Just very simple - routed and shaped stave from an ancient oak calvados barrel - the black is natural colouration from inside the barrel, with an olive branch...
  14. TV Entertainment Center

    After being in our new home for over two years, it was time to finish the TV cabinet. I didn't want the builder or cabinet maker to do this. Still have the mantel to go and that room will be finished. It is a custom cabinet made to fit this space, (oak plywood and custom trim). First attempt...
  15. Desert Ironwood Pipe

    So this pipe was a difficult one to say the least, especially when you have the cheap tools that I have. Desert Ironwood is one of my favorite woods; it has a beautiful golden hue when the light hits it just right and of course is one of the densest woods in the world, which makes well suited...
  16. Hidatable

    This was another progect that was spawned from boredom. Idle hands put to work, I started milling a piece of Olive burl that I found at our local firewood yard (love that place) and the colors were beautiful. While I was there I also found some choice logs of Olive wood. The table top and frame...
  17. Christmas Center Piece

    I just completed this in time for Christmas dinner. It is one of my favorite pieces. Each "candle" consist of a small battery powered tea light in the top of a turned piece of wood. I chose several of my favorite woods from all over the world and I turned each "candle" in a different...
  18. Cocobolo and Olivewood Pens

    I purchased these kits from PSI, and the boxes as well. I am happy the way they turned out. Get it, turned out? Sorry it's all I could think of. I put them in my web store. I like these kits because they leave a lot of wood on the tube. This means the wood warms in your hand while you use it.
  19. Bottle Stoppers

    I made a these bottle stoppers for a craft sale held at my church. Left to right the woods are: olive, Kingwood, Bubinga, and Rosewood with Maple. I used a wipe on poly for all but the last one which has an epoxy finish. I hope to get $10 per stopper. I hope to turn a couple of pens and maybe...
  20. A Different Olive Bowl

    Normally Olives are presented in little bowls with a second shallow part for the pits. I was trying to find a better way to present them, without the pits (out of everybody's mouth) laying next to the Olives on display. I combined a bowl with the idea of a "wind ashtray" making the pits fall in...
