  2. Projects Spalted Maple Bowl

    Spalted Maple Bowl This bowl was turned from a spalted maple log I got from some family friends, who had cut the tree down in their yard. It's around 6.5" in diameter, and 2" tall. I finished it with Mahoney's Walnut Oil. Overall I like the shape of this bowl. I like the way it curves back...
  3. Whisky Cabinet

    Single malt scotch is the best whisky in the world, scientifically proven to make your beard longer and your tools sharper. Great whisky deserves a fine cabinet; I had been keeping my whisky in a IKEA particle board cabinet and felt like I was keeping a beautiful princess in a castle made of...
  4. Spalted Molly

    I carved this lady in a piece of Spalted Maple. As many of you may know, a piece of wood becomes "spalted' due to the introduction and decomposition of the wood from fungus. The different types of fungus give the wood its' various colors. No artist will ever be a match for the beauty that Mother...
  5. 8 Tiny Brass Screws +

    Spalted maple with hand-crafted walnut clasp and hinges. It's all held together with 8 tiny brass screws. The box measures 6" x 5" x 2" and the hinges are 1 1/2" x 1" x 3/16" and the clasp is 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". Time in the hinges and clasp is about 3 1/2 hours and it was tedious at best. I...
  6. My first box - Spalted maple and oak

    After seeing all these boxes on here I decided to try one out. The hinges didn't set right, so the top is off a little, but besides that it's OK. I like the way the wood came together for the top - it's spalted maple, bordered by the oak, with a chechen divider down the middle

  8. Custom Spalted Hard Maple amp cabinet for a Fishman Loudbox Mini

    This latest guitar amplifier project started off as a limited edition (cream w/black face) Fishman Loudbox Mini Pro - which I got a killer deal on because part of what made it a limited edition - the cream tolex, was completely trashed. So I whipped out this amazing piece of spalted hard maple...
  9. Tea Box

    Once I made the knitting box for my fiancee, I could tell my Mom was a bit jealous when she saw that. I thought, you know… I'm going to make something really nice for mother's day and thought that a tea box would be the perfect choice. I did some research and found a website called Boxes by...

  11. Spalted "Blue Hole" Maple

    The wood for this box came from a severely spalted maple tree that had blown down in a wind storm at a nearby swimming hole-Blue Hole. The box measures 9×8 x 3 and the box lid handle was copied from one of my kitchen cabinet handles! Surprisingly, even with all the spalting, the wood is pretty...
  12. Spalted Maple Pedestal Bowl

    This maple bowl was turned back in 2001 on a small craftsman 9 inch swing lathe (1954 model). It clearly shows that you don't have to have a fancy machine, or even a lot of experience, to turn nice bowls. The wood came from the side of the road as the power company was clearing the trees along...
