  1. Spalted Figured Maple Platter

    If you get up early some mornings (earlier than is normal for me) and go down to the dock, the water is dead calm and a mist hangs over the water. Through the mist the outline of the island appears. Just then, a gentle breeze blows across the water, gently lifting the mist and rippling the water...

  4. Black Walnut Platters

  12. Square Turned Walnut Dish

    This started last November as a project in a woodturning class at Annapolis Woodworks. I was not able to finish before the class ended. The grain in the wood looked pretty special, so I decided to hang onto it and finish it. Recently, I finally got around to working on it. It would not fit...
