  1. Blood Orange

    With all the false starts on this pen, I should call it Blood (Sweat and Tears) Orange! I should also be proud of myself for managing to complete, what started out as a simple Osage Orange pen, that on more than one occasion should have ended up in the burn pile, not once, but three times. I...
  2. Composite Countertop Pen

    This is the 31st item in my 30 day project/challenge & auction. ... oops. Looks like I forgot to stop! Actually I had started turning this about 1/2way through this challenge.

Oh, wait… both issues were with Osage Orange root. I did have trouble...
  5. Sassafras, Eurostyle.

Sassafras, a very durable wood, is used in cabinetry, buckets, barrels and poles and is quick to regenerate after a disturbance. It was used by colonists to make root beer, and is also used medicinally. Sassafras is a laurel...
  6. Finishing
    I will be manufacturing a line of wooden laser engraved plaques. The more that I think about it the more that I believe that it would be better to put a nicer finish on them than what I will be able to do with a simple oil finish. My plaques average 8 in. x 16 in. So they are small products in...
