  1. From hummingbirds to dragons

    Went on a pendant making tangent this time. :) The hummingbird is an original design made from 1/4 in. thick spalted maple, and the dragon is black walnut on birch 1/8 in. ply. The dragon is a Steve Good pattern shrunk down to 70% original size with an added backer.
  2. Floral wall cross

    This walnut wall cross is a Steve Good pattern but ,as always, I can't leave well enough alone. I cut it from 3/4 in. thick walnut instead of 1/4 in. thick like the plans call for. I then used a reclaimed tongue and groove board that's been kicking around the shop for the "stained glass" church...
  3. Frames, scrolled & etched

    Doesn't it show what different colouring can do for a project. Admittedly I have internally framed one, but both were stack cut. As these were cut using ply and our ply here is very noticeably different in the layers, I decided to paint the back and the inside cuts with black to hopefully just...
  4. Rose Vine Keepsake Box

    This was a project that was an experiment that sort of went wrong. I tried for the first time to take a scrolled inlay pattern, then fill it in with polymer clay and bake according to the instructions. At first I was very pleased with the results, then I looked closely. Yikes! The lid now has a...
  5. Fox Terrier Necklace

    ERGH! Fail. Between chronic pain and the flu I missed the wooden wearables by mere hours! Oh well. Hope you all enjoy the necklace anyhow! I made this for my aunt for Christmas this year. I wear my own schnauzer one daily. It's just my style, simple, easy, and goes with everything, dressed up...
  6. Firefighter's plaque

    This intersecting word plaque was designed by Keith Fenton. The words are cut from 1/8" thick maple and then mounted on 1/2" pine that was stained Early American. The maple was dipped in lemon oil then I added a piece of red sign vinyl to it and then glued it to the backer board. I added brass...
  7. Custom designed word art

    These intersecting word art plaques were custom designed by Keith Fenton for me. I cut the lettering from 1/8" maple and the backer is 1/2" pine that is stained Early American. I dipped the maple board into lemon oil and then glued to the backer board. The brass nails are added for effect only...

    I made this bowl out of a slab of Walnut that was 85 years old it was gifted to me buy a friend who found it in his garage . His father apparently cut this tree down and Mill the wood sometime in the seventies. It's made from One Piece cutout of concentric circles or almost circles. It's...
  9. Ghost Hunters, Wolves in the Birch

    A handcrafted 3D sculpture of two white wolves peering around white birch trees on a moonlit night. Handcrafted of cedar on a Baltic birch background and framed in red oak. The wolves and trees are finished with acrylics and the frame is finished with tung-oil polished to a high gloss. To my...
  10. Blogs
    Shop time with my daughter My daughter Erin came out to the shop and scrolled me some Christmas ornaments for a charity event my Guild participates in each year. She is a natural-born artist, and I don't have to tell you how much it means for her to come out there and join me in the shop...
  11. Wood & Lumber
    My girlfriend who is a sculpting teacher at a local university found this outside the school studio. It may belong to a student, but she hasn't figured out who yet. If no one claims it, she'll probably bring it to me. Any Idea what it might be? it is bright yellow with some reddish color toward...
  12. Jigs & Fixtures
    Hi, I need a really simple jig for cutting material with a utility knife. It will be a circle with a diameter of 7.5" and will use it as a cutting guide for the utility knife. I need this to last so wood and plastic won't hold up. The question is what material will stand up to a utility knife...
  13. Joinery
    I am working on building some toys that have multiple small parts. I have seen various videos about hide glue where you simply rub the parts together and hold for a minute and the glue has set. I have no experience with any form of hide glue. Would hot hide glue be appropriate where the...
