  1. Vintage post office box door restoration for wooden banks

    I like to collect these vintage p.o. box doors to make little banks and give them as gifts. The most enjoyable part of the process for me is the restoration of the door. Most of the ones I will buy are from the 1930's or earlier. A few are from the 1880's. Although not terribly sophisticated...

    Irish goblet with two captive rings - wedding day gift Turned from Pistacia palestina (often referred to as "terebinth"). The meaning in Hebrew is Israeli Goddess. I made it for a guy who was getting married, and wished to present it as a token of his love to his beloved at their wedding...
  3. Pen Turning for my son's Lacrosse coaches

  4. Buckeye Burl Euro Style Pencil

    This was my first experience with Buckeye Burl. This is the easiest burl I have ever worked with. I didn't have any chip out problems and the finished product is outstanding. My typical finish, sanded to 12,000 grit, EEE cream, danish oil, then shellawax and buffed to a high shine. I love...
  5. My First Pens | Woodturning

    I know it's not the most interesting project post to look at, but I'm posting this more for documentation than anything for my own viewing pleasure years down the road. I've only tried slimline pens so far, which seems to be the normal starting point for new pen turners. Listed in the order I...

  7. Desert Pen

    Here's a pen I turned from a piece of native Mesquite I picked up in the desert of Southern Nevada, just outside Las Vegas. I was pleasantly surprised about how it turned out. I compared it to another pen I had turned from Koa and it looked almost the same! It made this as part of the pen...

  9. Pens for colleagues

    Before last winter break I went on a massive pen and wine stopper making adventure--the goal was to make a pen or wine stopper for everyone in the social studies department and a few other people I work with… I got close…it was fun…everyone was impressed…but I didnt get one to everyone…little...
  10. Acrylic Slimline Pens that Smell Like School Spirit

    I made 9 of these on commission for a teacher to give to her adivsory student group. The school colors are green and white. It was my first use of acrylic and was an interesting change from the wooden pens I have done in the past. I used white tubes so the brass color wouldn't bleed through...
  11. Bubinga Cigar Pen

    One of my colleagues was just promoted into an account management role and I made this pen for him to help him impress his customers and close some deals. Sanded to 12,000 grit, EEE cream, Danish Oil, then some Shellawax for final finish. I really like what the Danish Oil does to the color of...
  12. Cherry Kitchen

    Cherry (with maple ply when not visible) kitchen cabinets. I can't find the pics of the lower cabinets or the island, so I'll have to take some more. 2005. I was trying to get this done just as our first child arrived. In fact, I think everything was installed, but I didn't have the doors or...

  14. Spalted Maple Burl Pen

    This is my very first pen. I used a grizzly mini lathe and turned it out of spalted maple burl. The finish is Crystal coat friction polish. It took about a half hour to turn this from start to finish. I really liked the contrast between the black slim line pen kit and the wood. I'm very proud...
  15. First Pens

    Hi guys! I have been wanting some lathe practice and a pen seemed like a good project for just that. The first pen I turned was the simple shaped one in Osage Orange with Gold Upgrade kit. The second one I decided I wanted to add some shape and ergonomics. It was done in Bocote with a Copper...
  16. Shop Made Scraper Planes

    I made these last September, at the end of my shop-made hand tools binge. (I am sure I will have more such binges.) I have not had a chance to post them since I was busy putting my website together. I am experimenting with showing off projects with video. Let me know what you think (both...
  17. Some of my pens

    Just wanted to share some pics of my pens with everyone. My favorite so far is the Navigator pen but the one I'm most proud of making is the corncob, turning it was a challenge and then the color was poor so I had to add some stain to get the black more blacker… it's a special request gift so I...
  18. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    OK, just wanted to thank The Wood Turners Catalog (Some know them by Craft Supplies USA). Yesterday, 12/29, I placed an order for some supplies. Today I received an email with a 1 day promotion discount of 15% for all orders placed today (12/30). So I called up customer service with a simple...
  19. Woodworking Skill Share
    So I started down the slope of pen turning. I've done about 15 so far. I have been using the CA glue and BLO finish with some good success as of late. The problem I am having is that on darker woods especially, I get shiny spots that appear to be under the finish. I sand 220 320 400 1000...
