  1. Wiccan Wands

    A few of over 30 that were completed this month. All the wands pictured here are made from natural Sumac, and driftwood, with various crystals incorporated into them. I use many art mediums when making my wands and hope in the near future to post photos of a project from start to finish showing...
  2. spalted local and recycled woods box + sumac bandsaw box

    This is a box I had started a few months ago, originally to make a music box for my sweetheart. But having found a better alternative in a crafts shop, I had left this one on the workbench for future use. I brought it back home this time, and covered it with a locally found spalted wood (will...
  3. Spoons and scoops

    These spoons are made of cherry and birch. The finish is Watco butcher block finish. The coffee scoops are made of butternut, walnut, ash, cherry, birch and sumac with the same finish.
  4. Spoons: Sumac and Sycamore

    Hey everyone I am still putting more of these out and have hopes of selling a few in the upcoming months! These pair here are Smooth Sumac (not the itchy variety..lol) and Sycamore. I am in the middle of a computer crash so my old Macintosh 2000 rig is up and slow as a whale..lol, so I may not...
  5. Sumac Kuksa's - Traditionally carved wooden cups

    Heres some cool projects this week. I was fortunate enough to get ahold of some large Sumac, almost 8" in diameter. Ive been freshening up on my Kuksa carving and have been able to carve one of them in about 2-3 hours. It definitely depends on how tough the wood is that I'm working with...
  6. New styles in spoondum!

    Hello friends, With the holidays fast approaching I have been busy with some various small projects! After doing some further study and research of the natural shapes of eating spoons I began to find better avenues for improving my works look, feel and practicality. Basically I was just way...
  7. Butternut, Locust and Sumac Swedish Spoons!

    From the forest to the table, these made for some fun whittle work on a sunny sunday so I had some fun and took some pics to share with the crew. At times I am not sure if this work is just as good as some prescribed medicine that the pharmacy has no ideas of, but I think it might be so..lol...
  8. Sumac Cane

    I have sold or given away most of my stockpile of canes, so I've started working on some just to have something to take on walks! This is a piece of sumac a friend gave me. It is a light-weight wood, with a shallow root that grows to the side, making a handle for a cane. The bark peeled easily...
  9. Sumac carved spoons

    This is the same piece of sumac carved in opposite ways. Sumac is an interesting wood to carve! Very soft, but once its all finished it seems to hold its own. Ive only carved sumac once its been seasoned, but I would love to carve it green. Ive got a ton of pictures on my facebook, feel free...
  10. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Just wondering if anyone is planning on attending the hand tool event at Hardwoods Inc.? I'll be there demonstrating and was wondering if I'd have the chance to meet any lumberjocks. Of course, it'll be great to see all the lumberjocks I've already met. Let me know if anyone's planning on being...
  11. Wood & Lumber
    Does anyone have a good resource for a supplier of Sumac either in the southern MD/VA area or who does mail order? There's an intarsia project I'd love to do with some sumac specifically because of its black light colors, but finding it online has left me feeling like I'm chasing unicorns. lol...

    pictures of an early colonization by Chlorociboria aeruginascens Hey guys, Having recently decided that I couldn't continue refering to the blue-green stained wood as "stained by some mysterious fungi", I dug out everything I could find on Google and ended up with a boatload of pictures and...
