  1. Philadelphia High Back Windsor

    I made this chair as part of the same class as my pal, Fred Dudak, at the Windsor Institute with Michael Dunbar. Fred's chair was more refined than mine when I left-he's got more of the chairmaker knack. But I did a little work on my knuckles and redeemed myself a little! Delicate...

    My neighbor mentioned that he could not find exact replacement molding for some rotted molding on his Victorian home. I cut out the section and recreated on the lathe.

  9. My Best Magnolia Bowls

    This Wood came from two very big Southern Magnolias at my church. I'm a little partial to Magnolia because its the Mississippi state tree and flower and I think I lived most of my childhood in the top of my neighbor's Magnolia in Jackson, MS. The pastor said he was going to cut them down. I...
  10. Cherry Bookcase
