  4. Design by Music

    I was asked by a woman to design a Cheese/Breadboard to the music of the band "Train" and this is what I came up with. Their music is honest, deep and some references to space, so the Black Walnut reminds me of the solar system and the different colors of the type of music in their songs. It is...

    I wanted to buy some name plaques for my family, but I had trouble finding ones that I liked.

  15. BEAUTE'S BAGUE / '' beautiful's ring''

    What a tricky contest. Ask woodworkers to make jewelry and then what? It seems like one of those projects that you have to give away. So I did. Now the tricky part…. Explain that you really only made the ring for a contest but you wanted her to have it anyway. Here it is! I made this ring for my...

    My brother blessed me with the honor of making a display case for our Dad's flag presented at his memorial service for his service in World War II. I was also given the honor of making both of my parents' burial urns. For part of Dad's urn, I used some sugar maple that Dad had cut for...
  17. Lidded box

    This is a thin piece of plexiglas in a jar of acetone and let it sit for a couple of days. The acetone pretty much turned the plexiglas soft enough to apply to the turning with a clean white rag. (my wife wonders where all my old tee shirts go to). This is wiped onto the box while the lathe...

    I was making a lot of end grain cutting boards for some friends and family for Christmas this year. Some of them had checker like patterns on them, and people started asking if I also made chess boards. I had never actually tried to make a chess board, so I decided to give it a stab just to...
