  1. Segmented vase

    First segmented piece using angled staves. It took me quite a while to figure out the right setup for the compound angle cuts. After several failed test cuts, I finally figured it out. The wood is cherry, maple, white oak and rosewood.
  2. Wine Barrel Stave Adirondack Chair

    This is not my chair and I am not taking credit for it, I just wanted to post it to show how beautiful these chairs can be when a ture craftsman makes one, not like my simplified and cheaper version. This chair was made by Jonathan Black of Bella Barrel (www.bellabarrel.com). These are pics of...
  3. Dinner Salad Bowls...mahogany and walnut

    The bowls are made using staves of mahogany with walnut spacers. They were turned on the lathe and then numerous coats of a foodsafe finish was applied.
  4. Segmented Vase

    This my first attempt at a staved piece and my 4th doing segmented items. This was a fun project that was inspired from Malcolm Tibbets book- The Art of Segmented Turning. This is a great book. 41 pieces made from walnut and red oak. This is a combination of solid base, stave sides and...
  5. New Year's Bombe Jewelry Box

    Box number 22 in my recent box series. This is number 8 in my Adventures into Shape. This box is built from pine, cedar, hickory? and poplar and the some features are mesquite and oak. It is a little different from my previous boxes as it does not have splines re-enforcing the edge glued...
  6. Wine Barrel Plant Stand

    Hi: I recently completed a project for my wife… a plant stand made from wine barrel staves. I used wine barrel lids for the two platforms, and staves for the legs, as well as barrel bands for around the legs. The result is a sturdy and attractive - in a artisan sort of way - plant stand that...
  7. Ye Olde Cedar Bucket

    Ye Olde Cedar Bucket When a guy gets an armload of nice western red cedar for free, you have to do something with it. I have made quite a number of these buckets over the years, but usually out of hickory, oak or walnut. This was made from cutoffs from a residing project….very nice lumber. It...
  8. Willow Oak Headboard

    My neighbor was clearing his property and he had about 20 willow oak trees he had cut down. So I loaded them up on my trailer and milled a few. I needed a headboard so here we are. This was made from one tree with several boards left over, all rough cut. All I did was sand it a little. The side...
  9. 2x4 Planter Stand and Planters

    Ever have one of those projects where nothing seems to go right. It seems like a good idea and the vision in your head is great but it just doesn't turn out the way you envisioned. Because of the limit to a 2×4 it was necessary to make the staves for the planters 5/8" x 3/4" and I needed 30 of...
  10. Cookbook Case

    I made this bookcase for my wife's cookbooks. This was my first foray into loose tenon joinery-it looked simple enough but 54 wooden parts for a 3 shelf bookcase turned out to be anything but simple (at least for me). All in all I think it turned out ok. I used quartersawn red oak for...
  11. Segmented Toothpick Holders

    A couple of segmented (staves) toothpick holders. Walnut bases and lids, maple staves.
  12. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am going to be making a 3 inch think endgrain cutting board out of maple for a friend of mine. My budget is not large, and home depot is just down the road. Is the maple bought at home depot the correct type? I have heard there is soft and hard maples.. but i certainly cannot tell the...
  13. Jigs & Fixtures
    After a lot of searching about tapered staves (like for buckets) and segmented rings for turning I began to realize that there is an overlooked common element that is very useful for cutting accuracy and simplicity of layout. Both types, staves and segments, are symmetric about a centerline. So...
  14. Woodturning
    I think the method of flat segmented rings has been solved with complete clarity. E.I.. the sleds and "Miter Set" devices. So I don't want to revisit that. When I started to calculate the angle between staved segments, the problem of blade angle was added to the miter angle. When a blade...
  15. Site Help and Suggestions
    Restoring an old wooden butter churn. Some of the staves are slightly warped from broken lower bands not holding in place. The upper bands are still in place. What's the best way to make the staves pliable enough to conform to original shape?
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    I have a need to make a tapered wooden bucket and am wondering if anyone within earshot has a straightforward way to determine the compound angles for the staves. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  17. Designing Woodworking Projects
    All, I could use everyone's design experience on this one… I have this slab that I am going to use for a table top. It is 30" diameter and 5" thick. I am stumped on the design for legs for a short coffee table. My preference is to stay with wooden legs that I can make but am open to using...

    Constructing the Carved Tree Trunk Base Get your own valid XHTML YouTube embed code I am having a lot of trouble getting the video to look right in this blog! It looks wrong here and if you click full screen it looks even worse! If you REALLY want to watch it then it is best to click...
  19. Wood & Lumber
    I am on the east coast of Maryland, I am looking for a source of used barrel staves, either wine or whiskey. I dont mind buying a quantity if the price is right and shipping reasonable. Any suggestions or contacts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Erik [email protected]
