  1. Osage orange bottle opener for the beer swap

    This year's beer swap was a quick one to fill in between other swaps. It was agreed to concentrate on the beer first and throw together an item to go along with it. Since I had made one of these for last year's swap, I thought that would be something that I could finish in the time allotted...
  2. .50 BMG rounds

    Someone on here made a chain of these some time back and I thought it a sweet idea. I can't seem to find those pictures, so if anyone knows who it was let me know. This is in Osage Orange with the bullet dipped in Cabernet stain. Lacquer finish. Links are EI Rosewood. My dimensions are very...
  3. Walnut, Bodark & Mesquite Toy

    Does anyone remember having one of these??? I used to make these as a kid. I would find some metal band strapping and cut a length approximately 4 inches. Next you fold it so the holes in the strapping line up in the middle and clean up the edges. It's only about 1 ¾" long and ¾" wide. I...
  4. Wooden Pocket Knife

    This is an all wood Trapper style pocket knife….except for the brass pins. These are fun to make. They are a challenge because of all the minor adjustments that are necessary for it to function just like a real knife. I make mine as close to actual size as possible so I use the very hard...
  5. Feather Wand

    Through my shop / studio I meet interesting artists and artisans. One of which is a flint napper and I have been selling his work out of my store front for a while now and he feeds my wood addiction by bringing back wood from his travels.

  7. Heart Throb

    Another "Work of Heart" benefitting the Memphis Child Advocacy Center. This one is made of silver maple. The base is Osage Orange and is just heavy enough to support this. I tried to make this feel very thin and in many spots it is super thin, in the 1/32" range. I always start with an angle...
  8. Cabinet Scraper Plane and Burnisher

    This was made for Lumberjocks Plane swap that just finished up. After going through about 5 other ideas, including some prototypes, I finally settled on making a cabinet scraper.

    Time for a new shop mallet, so went though the scraps and patched together this one using the two American hardwoods with the most contrary attitudes I have worked with-hickory and Osage orange (aka hedge, Bois d'arc or bodark). Handle is actually part of a factory made hickory axe handle. The...
  13. Indiana University Thingy

    I believe "Thingy" is the official name for something like this! (I couldn't come up with a name that seemed appropriate.) I made these by request of a coworker who had seen the one I did for Ohio State. When he saw the initial drawing, he shared it with his brother who decided to order one as...

    This is the second bowl in my "Logs to bowls" series which highlights the natural bark and wood grain. This bowl was made from one half of an Osage Orange log.
