  1. Hollow Vessel Turning

    This is my first attempt at hollow vessel turning. It started as a 10" long 7" diameter Redwood Burl veneer core log piece and this is how it ended up. I guess I could have made the neck opening a little smaller; however, I was more interested in learning technique at the time. I sanded up to...

    This is a redwood burl bowl that I just finished. It is a combination of hand carved and lathe turned. I just got my first lathe about a two weeks ago. I had already carved out the inside by hand and I just couldn't resist the urge to finish the outside on the lathe. I was scared to death...

  6. Redwood Burl "Broken Art" and "Function"

    Sometime the middle of last year a friend gave me a fire damaged slab he found in a barn on a piece of property he had purchased. At first I planned to make a small coffee table out of it, but neither side was flat enough. Here are the first two results from the slab. The first, which I have...
  7. Hand Plane Box

    Recently a good friend introduced me to the world of hand planes and kindly gifted me with four of his. I figured that good hand planes needed a good home; a safe place from the surrounding world. I had a fun time building this box, and, yes, the planes were used in its construction. I plan...

  9. Redwood Burl Table

    This coffee table was very little "woodworking" in the traditional sense and a lot of sanding, smoothing and more sanding! I started with a large redwood burl slab that I thought would make a great living room coffee table. The problem was that the live edge was very irregular, fragile and...

  12. No Hardwood Box

    Robert Triplet sent me several small pieces of very cool California woods. This redwood burl looked like it wanted to be inlaid so I bought a compact plunge router (my first plunge router) and had a go. I don't usually mix hard and soft woods so decided to use some Western Red Cedar with the RW...

  15. An escape from box making!!

    I had not used my lathe in a long time. I had finished a lot of cutting boards and boxes, so I decided on a change of pace. I got the Redwood Burl from Larry Dubia, a fellow lumberjock and the Cherry Burl from Turner John, in Michigan. He sells here in trade and swap. I had fun turning. The...

  17. Chatoyance

    This jewelry box is a birthday present for my mother. I'm confident this will be a welcomed addition to her collection of lacquered boxes. I chose the name chatoyance for two reasons. One is for all the shimmer the grain displays, but mainly because this has been one of her favorite catchy...
  18. New Thumb Drums Ready for Christmas!

    My marketing dude said that Toe jam for the name of the drum was not wise we named it the thumb drum. I believe some one from LJs named it the Thumb drum from the contest.
