  1. Replica Of Celtic Blessing Cross From The Start Of Christianity

    This is the image of the cross from the rising of CHRISTIANITY. Many of the crosses from those time, saved until this time - lost some parts. I've restored several different destroyed crosses in the one cross. The cross made for Celtic bishop. The oak is the Holy Wood for celts. So because of it...
  2. Copper Patina Garden Gate

    The garden gate is installed and the old fence boards recycled. I ran the old fence through the planer and applied a coat of penetrating oil. I also applied a patina to the handle. I used a patina kit from Osh (see blog) and wasn't satisfied with the finish so I sprayed on a couple of...

    Details: Cherry with jatoba plugs. Approximately 14"x4"x9". Danish oil finish with dark paste wax.

  5. iPad Pulpit

    Here's an interesting project. This is a pulpit (podium) for iPad. It's made of reclaimed American Chestnut barn wood, steel, aluminum, and calf skin leather.

  8. Crusty Copper Container

  9. Copper Patinated Crosses

    These are similar in style to those I made before which sold out, the difference is I used copper instead of wood veneer.

  10. Rustic Side Table and Time Lapse Video for Summers Woodworking Contest 2014

    Hi Lumber Jocks and Janes, I made this side table out of half of an old reclaimed 2×4 for Summers Woodworking Contest 2014. I wanted a bolted together look with no apron because I thought it would be an interesting contrast between fragility and strength. The other contrast effect I was going...
  11. More copper etching and patina

    It's me again, I made similar crosses a few months ago with wood borders and patinated copper centers. They sold well and I got a few suggestions on other designs people wanted. These crosses are in response to that request. I made nine total, three wood varieties with three center etchings...

  15. Crotch Honey

    This is Honey Locust crotch wood. It measures 3.5" x 10.5" and is finished with a wipe-on poly. This was a tough one due to the varying densities of the wood. I never did get this piece completely balanced. Thanks for looking.

  18. Arched Bed With Copper Patina Headboard

    Mission accomplished? So here's how it goes. If you build a new bed you need to buy a new mattress. If you buy a new mattress it will be to tall on the old bed so you'll have to build a new bed. If you build a new bed you'll have to paint the walls. If you paint the walls you'll have to put...

  20. Personal Cabinet

    It started as a pie safe as I remember as a kid. My Grandma was always baking and with a house full of grandkids, she utilized her safe. As I progressed I decided to use copper for the panels, and no real desire to punch holes. Alder and walnut were used, as they seem complimentary. 5 feet tall...
