  1. Potpurri dish from walnut with pewter lid

    So it's Mothers Day and i turned up this potpurri dish for the wifey from some figured walnut. She likes butterflies. The pewter lid is from Peachtree. They had a special on a set of 12 lids with all different cast designs. I will be making more of these. Link to Pewter Lids
  2. Deco Cabinet

    It's been a while since I posted a project and realized I haven't shared our latest furniture. Couple months ago, we were contacted by a designer in LA to create a deco cabinet inspired by an elevator door in LA. At first we worked on a trompe-l'oeil concept Then with the deigner, we...

    I made this custom fly fishing net with a clear rubber net for a friend I met through an online fishing community. The hoop is wenge & curly maple, and the handle is curly maple with a custom laser-inscribed logo. The net is for a son of my client who is a pharmacist. Hence, the mortar &...
  4. Tomahawk

    I really just had to give a tomahawk a try. This is a Craig Barr [deermountainforge] forged tomahawk head. He really does outstanding work, and quick shipping [although you do pay for it]. The handle is made from walnut with poured in place pewter caps on the top and bottom of the handle. The...

  7. Breast Feeder

    I carved the original Breast Feeder in the early 90's methinks and I believe it was pear wood. A tongue in cheek idea being that we all start life getting our food (life) from the breasts. I resurrected the idea a couple of years ago when my wife lost her breasts to cancer. The second rendition...
  8. Kaleidoscope for Drema

    I have a friend (Drema) that loves kaleidoscopes. I got the kit and bushings etc from Penn State and figured it'd be a no-brainer. I had a really hard time getting this one together. . I turned down a block of mopani to 2000 grit and polished it with my proprietary mixture (proprietary b/c I...
  9. Another Custom Sierra Fly Fishing Net - Wenge, Mahogany, and Cocobolo w/ Burl Oak Magnetic Catch

    The client who contacted me wanted a custom net for her dad from his grandson. The stipulations for this commission were many: A net that is: unique, has a black cotton bag, is personally inscribed, can be delivered by Christmas, has a pewter trout on it, is of a wood that compliments an...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I got this table saw in exchange for straightening out the lighting in a friend's equipment barn. My previous and only other table saw was what can only charitably be called a piece of cheap junk. It was a $50 garage sale mistake - plastic case, tiny pot metal table, cheap ass inaccurate...
  11. Woodturning
    I turned this platter and 4 others yesterday, this was the only one I did a pewter casting with. This was also the first time I have ever done any metal casting so there were plenty of lessons learned! I sanded it up to 3000 then finished with tried and true.

    Ive been working on this project for nearly a month now and finally finished this morning. Approximately 7×4" with a 1.5×3" finial. The pewter was cast directly into the bowl with the help of casting sand, I including my initials in the casting but couldn't for the life of me get all of the...
  13. Blogs
    Start, to almost finished This is the finished bird that I started 2 weeks ago. It took about 24 hours to get it to this stage. I still need to make a mount for the bird, and I'd like to make it unique. That means no 'bird on a stick', but also not the trite 'wren on the edge of the...
  14. Woodworking Skill Share
    While planing some rough stock (red oak) for my latest project I noticed one of the boards had a dark streak and thought that it was an interesting grain color, maybe left by some bugs that made the tree their home for a while. My last pass was very light, just creeping up on the 3/4" I wanted...

  16. Finishing
    I know I made a huge mistake making shelves for a nursery out of maple, but I had so much left over from a previous project that I felt that I had to use it up. I went to rockler and bought GF Dark brown water based dye. I also bought GF espresso stain. No matter which I use, if I wipe off...
