  2. A "Palm Box.... with a curve"

    Well….. here is my version of Andy's "Palm Box", I just threw a little curve into it. Did it kind of simple…... Walnut & Curly Maple finished with Danish Oil and Black Bison Wax. Only other thing I did different, ( probably an overkill ), but I put hidden splines in at the butt joints, and did...
  3. Christmas Palm Box by Inspiration

    When I saw the palm boxes that Andy had made a light bulb turned on in my head (and that takes some doin). There is a story (of course) that needs to be told as to why the light went off in my head. Ya see my wife takes her watch off and sits it on something somewhere in the house when she...

  5. "Stormy Night in the Mountains"

    Stormy Night in the Mountains started life with an email conversation between a friend and I. He was looking for a special birthday gift for his girlfriend and wanted me to design a jewelry box for her. The fact that they live in Colorado and are big "outsiders" played a large part in the...

  7. Restored Albatross "Bounty" Cane

    My uncle bought this cane on Pitcairn Island in 2003. He bought it directly from Terry Young - a descendant of Edward Young who was one of the mutineers from the Bounty in 1789 who cast Capt. William Bligh adrift. See the links below for more info. The cane body is palm. I don't know the...
  8. 50 Year Anniversary Gift Intarsia Wall-Hanging

    This one made me remember why I like doing this. Lately I have been making work to sell, but this one is for my wife's parents 50th anniversary and when I'm making one with someone in mind I have a lot more fun. I combined some different methods that I have used in some of the other pieces...
  9. Palm Pen

    The Bad News: I find that Palm is somewhat difficult to work, as it is very fibrous - like a dense pack of very tiny little straws that easily lift when worked. It has a high sugar and water content so it tends to get moldy. As it spins on the lathe, it throws sticky pulp which sticks underfoot...
  10. Palm Tree Bowl

    Made from a section of palm tree cut down in the neighborhood. Finished with General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish … this bowl sucked up LOTS of that finish.
  11. A HANDBOOK

    Another project that I started a few years back and though the wood sculpting aspect is finished the total project still needs more attention to. My partner had a mahogany chopping block and after I had started carving with knives, I really started eyeing that chunk of wood as something with...
  12. Old Friends Intarsia Wall-Hanging/Carving

    This was a fun one to make because I love to add real life things into my projects to make them look more real. Using some old rusty chains, hooks, some old rope with the the fence made from our old deck we tore down last year. I did not sand or do anything to the old deck to make it look like...

  14. The Tango Lamp

    The Tango Floor Lamp, which I initially called The Whirly, then The Roto, began as an experiment in bent lamination. Organic and sculptural. Sensual. The intertwining of the helical form is nature's Tango. The graceful shade follows where the base leads. Joined by rare earth magnets, each...
  15. Palm boxes

    I saw peoples posted palm boxes and thought " I can do that". Now I can't stop. It's like a sickness !!! I've used every wood I had in the shop including such oddities as aspen, hawthorn and barberry. They are all finished with shelac except for the aspen boxes which are finished with wipe on...
  16. Palm Box Eye Glass Holder

    Here is yet another Andy Palm Box. What an addicting, creative, simple and great looking design he has shared with us. I have seen many people make these boxes and use them for various purposes, and I found yet another use for this great box. I keep one at home and one at work where I keep my...
  17. Yet again .....

    Had to make another Palm Box tonight, I made two yesterday that I posted, so decided to make one more for my wife. I like this one because although I don't know what wood the lid is made off, it has a gorgeous sap wood edge on it that gives this great character. Along with that I made a button...
  18. Palm Boxes #2 and #3

    Palm Box #2 has a Mahogany top (probably African), Mesquite front and back and Curly MW (mystery wood) on the sides. Palm Box #3 has the mystery wood on top and the rest Mesquite. These are my second and third Palm Box projects and I'm really enjoying grabbing some scraps and then letting the...
  19. Palm Boxes

    Made a new "finger joint" sled and had to try it out. Was only going to make one palm box but got carried away. Used maple, walnut, cherry, yellow heart, purple heart, oak, blood wood and poduc.
  20. Quick palm box gift

    I made a quick palm box over the weekend for my mother's birthday. As usual, it will arrive late. I probably should put something shiny in it before I mail it. The top is curly maple, the sides are Cuban Mahogany, and the bottom is narra. Finished with 3 coats of wipe on poly.
