  1. Sycamore - Firewood to Cell Phone Chair

    First a question…as a fellow lj, which to you looks better. The pale wood which is just plain sanded wood or the yellowish color wood is with a coat of tund oil. Later I am going to wax a piece of the plain sanded wood to see how that will look. When leaving work I saw that a coworker had a...

  5. The sycamore box

    Saw this box while surfing recently and liked the look of it, so when a nice piece of sycamore showed up in the shop, I decided to see what I could do. The body of the box is 10" long, 3" hi and 6" front to back. The ends were ebonized with India ink, and the body of the box was dyed with...
  6. A nice little table

    A couple years ago a wind storm blew down an apple tree in my front yard. I went out and bought a chainsaw, cut up the tree, and set aside the trunk for resawing. I managed to get a short stack of lumber that I let dry in the shed. Using what material I had, I designed a small side table. The...
  7. Modern Computer Desk with Integrated Cable Management

    My wife and I remodeled our office/library (new wood floors, paint, chairs, and layout), and we wanted a new desk to replace our old executive-style one. Our old desk was too big and heavy, and we wanted something with simple, clean lines, waterfall grain, and open-framed metal legs. When we...

    This was my first knife build. The knife itself is just a kit that you can get. The scales (hadles) were traced from blanks that came with the knife kit. There made from quarter sawn sycamore. Cut out, roughed out, and then fine tuned with a dremel and hand sanding. The finish was a cpl...
  9. Six Pack Carrier from Reclaimed Wood

    This one started out being a way to use some pallet slats and make a simple six pack carrier. Then I found a nice strip of walnut in my scrap bin. Then I used my CNC Router to carve the Hops flowers in each side. Then I found a scrap of QS Sycamore for the bottom. Let's just say it's no...

  13. Spalted Sycamore Tri-point Bowl

    This 3 point bowl started out as a cube and was mounted corner to corner in a lathe and turned. An insect hole in the original cube was partially preserved in the finished bowl. It can be seen on one upper edge in the finished product. This bowl came from a tall Sycamore tree that had been...

  15. Stick A Spork In It "Christmas Is Done!"

    This year I decided to build gifts for all my nieces and nephews for Christmas.

To make things go faster I kept the one design, but...
  16. Sycamore Urn & #7

    Made this for my niece for some of her Dad's ashes. The wood is sycamore and the miter spline's are walnut. I made a little/teeny/tiny #7 out of walnut as he was a Mickey Mantle fanatic all his life. Was going to affix it to the front or top of the box but then just decided to put it in the...
  17. Accent Table

    Small accent table made from random leftovers. I used red & yellow heartwoods for top & sycamore branches for legs. Since I was using up some leftover woods, once I had it assembled, I didn't feel like the top & legs matched at all. So, I used a Dremel & carved the spirals around the legs &...

  19. Trio of Six Pack Carriers

    I wanted to give my brother and brother-in-law some of my home-brewed beer for Xmas - what better way to present it to them than in a custom six pack holder! Since I was totally "winging it" on the plans, I first made myself one - I figured I'd get all of the mistakes ironed out by the time I...

    I made this little box to test my new WoodRat back when I first got it. It takes a little practice to make really tight dovetails with a WoodRat. The wood is from hurricane Ike. Sycamore for the top and bottom and something like pecan I think for the sides. I collected wood from the side of...
