This is a new product I am developing. The letters are kind of abstract. I haven't worked out all the letters, shapes and combinations yet, but I am excited about it. These names are little bigger round than a No.2 Ticonderoga pencil. Pretty close to the blade work. I use my Model 93 scroll saw...
Here is a mirror that started out to be a Dallas Cowboy's theme mirror. I built a baseball mirror for a customer and I decided to make an extra mirror for display, but not necessary the same theme. I finished it with white lacquer and had it sitting around for a white planning on some Cowboy's...
I made this Personalized Cat bowl feeder for my cat, Tiny. I used a piece of Maple wood, designed it using Vectric Aspire and cut it out on the X-Carve CNC Router. Stained it using Minwax Gunstock finish, painted the claws and names with Craft paint. Thanks for checking out my Cat Feeder.

This is a great way to show off all those exotic scraps you've been saving.
BECKY is Amboyna Burl, Pau Amarello, Purpleheart, Zebrano and Paduak woods on a Walnut substrate.
I stock over 25 hardwoods of exotic and domestic origin, so there are always little bits that need rescue from the landfill.
These are a smaller version of my standard keychain. They measure approximately 7/16×1/4" and are as long as each name works out, usually 1.5 - 2.5".
The ones pictured here, in order are Cumaru, Zebrawood, Red Oak, Madrone, Walnut and Mesquite. They are used for key tags, zipper pulls, dog...

The ♥ is carved adjacent to the name that I feel will balance the piece, and is...

Sign making I'm certain is not my forte but I did manage to get these routed for my daughter's and their family for Christmas. The black is marsh ink. After drying I sanded this off and then finished with 3 coats of poly spray.
Thanks for looking.
I have been adding woods to my arsenal.

Pic #3 - Purpleheart and Mesquite. The purpleheart...
First 3 Pics;
In answer to our ever rising shortage of horizontal space on our desks.
Diminutive in size but readable at 10+ feet. The red oak letters are .625" square with a 45 degree chamfer on the back edge to tilt them up for readability. They sit on a .75×1.0" base with a .25×3.5" mortise...

Conquering the world… one keychain at a time.

Here are two playing card boxes I made with a combination of Walnut and Maple.
The box sides were made of some cut Walnut and Maple strips I had been saving and the tops are made of 1/4" Walnut.
These are displayed at an Engraving Store I work with, to be potentially engraved on top and...
