  1. "Hot" Salsa/Dip and Chip Tray and Pistachio Pendant

    A couple more projects got finished today. The first one is an Ambrosia Maple serving tray for chips and dip that has been fractal burned on the inside. I made the mistake of trying to sand it on the lathe with all the black ash in there and it got into the fibers of the wood . So I took a skin...
  2. Wooden Bottle

    This is a project I dreamed about and then challenged my self to make it. It is an oval bottle made from Osage Orange with a pistachio cap. I have some process shots below. It was hollowed from the bottom, the bottom was glued on with West System epoxy and then a spigot was glued to that so the...
  3. Pistachio Crotch Bowl #77

    This was the only piece of pistachio crotch wood that I could find on the scrap pile at Dead Tree Salvage in Casa Grande. It had two limbs that were much smaller than the trunk thus the big difference in heart wood showing in the center. The limbs show up as 1" dia. spots. The fact that most of...

    This floor lamp is finally done!! One month in the making. The shade is a stained glass Tiffany style lamp called Saguaro Sunset that was built by my wife and the lamp is made from a slice of a big pistachio tree for the base and a small pistachio tree for the post. I carved more than an inch...
  5. Pistachio Floating Top Cribbage Boards

    These are the boards originally ordered. They have male pistachio tops and mesquite bottoms and drawers for the cards and pegs. I made these drawers thicker so the pegs can be loaded straight up. They each have 2 pairs of magnets to hold them in and I put a finger slot in the bottom to open...
  6. Cookie Jar Lid

    A lady in our park has a disabled grand daughter who loves dalmatians so she bought her a cookie jar with the 101 dalmatians but it had no lid . She asked if I could make her one and said the girl has a problem grasping so I made it with a hole in the handle to put her finger through to lift...
  7. Pistachio Cribbage Board

    This is my first attempt at a cribbage board. I was making pegs for one in Arizona out of deer antler and elk eye teeth (ivory) this winter and was shown the game board. I had this piece of slab wood of male pistachio and thought it would make a nice one. I designed the pattern of the pegs to...
  8. Pistachio and Spalted Maple Bowl

    Here is a Pistachio and Spalted Maple Lidded Bowl With an Ebony Finial. This turning started as a Hollow Form, (see last pic) Had a small catch on the inside while hollowing. As I was cleaning up the top, I blew a hole through it at the thin spot. So I cut the top off and turned it into a bowl...

The coaster is a cut off from a project I started tonight and could not throw it away. I needed a new one by the computer anyway! I...
  10. Dumbledore Wands

    I see a lot of guys posting wands so I looked into them and found one from a guy named Dumbledore from Harry Potter. I was just goofing around in the barn the other night and thought I'd try to make one. The block of pistachio was so cracked that I was only able to get two pieces that might make...
  11. Teleidoscope #1

    This is my first attempt at making a Teleidoscope. I bought the kit parts and discarded the cardboard tubes and drilled a piece of wood for the body.This is a cross between a kaleidoscope and telescope. It uses the images you see out the end rather than a can full of chips that you rotate to...

  13. Pistachio Handle

    Handle I turned from some reclaimed Pistachio sent to me by a woodworking buddy. A friend of mine at work asked me to make a handle for the magnifying glass that she inherited from her grandfather. He was appently quite the tinkerer - woodwork, metalwork, stone. He taught her quite a bit and...

  15. Pistachio Frame for 3D Picture

    My daughter loves penguins so I made this for her 50th birthday. . We found this picture in old San Diego 2 week ago so I bought a piece of pistachio for the frame. It was pretty warped and had many cracks so I had to carefully cut it so I could capture some sap wood in each piece. The left...
  16. Fibonacci Guage

    I needed a longer Fibonacci gauge for longer pieces in the lathe so I made this one that is 17 1/2" long. It is made from Pistachio wood and has stainless steel points and brass pivot pins. I finished it with Danish oil and buffed and waxed the arms. Cheers, Jim
  17. Turkey Trumpets

    I have been working on a new call to add to my line and this is what I came up with. These are turkey trumpet calls which have been around for years but the way they are made is a guarded secret to say the least. I spent a lot of time researching how to do these then took more time figuring out...
  18. Pistachio Wood

    I made this pen out of pistachio wood. I was very surprised how well this wood turned. It was literally like a hot knife through better. The wood just literally fell off with the slightest touch.
  19. Pistachio Pistachio Serving Bowl

    This is a bowl I dreamed about and finally got it made. It is a bowl for eating pistachios and storing the shells in a ring around it and then being able to dump out the shells without the top coming off. The bowl was made from 2 pieces of 70 yr old very cracked pistachio wood. I had filled it...
  20. More Trivets

    These are two trivets I made for the order from my daughter. She needs one so she'll have a choice. The dark one is made from a piece of Pistachio wood (4 5/8" dia.) from the scrap pile at the sawmill in Casa Grande. I just glued a spigot to the back and turned it round and added a few grooves...
