  1. Wood tools used for Antler carving

    This isn't truly woodworking but I did use the same tool set for these knife handles as for my wood carvings. I have a customer that is a flintknapper that specializes in replicating stone tools made by Native Americans, prehistoric Europeans creating lithic art and needed some 20 Elk and Deer...
  2. Pen Swap Pens...

    Here's my contribution to the pens for the Official LumberJocks Pen Turner's Swap Round 2. Jr. Gentleman's in gold/Thuya Burl and a Slimline in silver/bubinga/maple. This swap has been so much fun… felt like I needed to do something nice to contribute. Hope that whoever down the line ends up...
  3. Artist Box

    I saw this idea on Lumberjocks and thought it would be a great project to make for a friend. Something that is fairly compact that she can take around and setup to paint when she feels inspired. The box is actually made of poplar. I chose poplar simply because I like the look of it, its easy...
  4. My Son's Mini-Bat

    My 14 year old who has been turning pens for a couple years had an interesting class yesterday. The teacher brought in a Wood Bat and the discussion/questions started going toward how is a bat made? Josh tended to have his hand up most of the time and was the only one who knew what the machine...

  7. Well , well , well

    Had to try something different . Added the additional juice well to my usual juice groove. Joel wanted a plain jane Maple board with clipped corners to actually use , so I figured why not practice on something that was already relatively ugly to start with. I threw in some Birdseye and some...
  8. River wood totem

I hope you enjoy this piece as much as i did making it...
  9. Radiator Cover

    Our house has radiant heat from big cast-iron hot-water radiators. The heating is lovely, but they're kinda ugly. I built this cover for the radiator in our dining room, to give us a little sideboard. Body is ash, top is ash, walnut and mahogony. The whole thing is finished with several...
  10. Fractured Vase

    This is the vase version of the platter series I do. This piece is 7 inches tall and 5 inches in diameter. I have used macasur ebony as the vase top. The vase is made from a manzanita root ball. Manzanita root is challanging to turn as you always find rocks in it.
  11. Evolution of Man Scrollwork

    My tribute to one of the greatest contributors to science in human history - Charles Darwin. The first time I saw this graphic I fell in love with it's simplicity and staggering meaning. I have to say that this was by far my most difficult scroll-work to date. Each figure frazzled my nerves...
  12. see life II

    See Life II, since the first one I have been working on another I love the flow of this piece. It stands six foot the base is made from a fur burl, (what a pitch) the center old growth red cedar and the orbs are from very spalted maple burl. Finish is rub on poly on the base, tung oil on the...

  15. TENDERIZING BOARD

    Made this tenderizing board for my wife to go with the mallet . All the maple came from my maple off cut bin and with a bit of shuffling I was able to enough pieces to make this board and just to add a little I added a piece of Jatoba to one corner . The sides are cut at an 7 DEG.angle to make...
  16. Flag box

    Little Flag box made from Black Limba with Walnut splines. using a tenoning jig to get the bottom angles cut makes this a easy project, sneaking up on the 45 at the top takes a little time but worth it, You can check out the short video:
  17. Lap Top for a Lap Top

    My wife likes to use her lap top computer while she's in her recliner. But, quite often she keeps readjusting the computer on her legs because it gets uncomfortable after a few minutes. So, I thought I would make her this collapsible lap top desk for her lap top. It's made of 3/4" Birch...

    First off, a keezer is a kegerator made from a chest freezer. I added a collar for extra depth for my 5 gallon corny kegs and fermentor. The tap handle is mesquite and maple glued with waterproof glue and turned on the lathe. now I just need to brew some tasty ale.
  19. Maloof-Inspired Black Walnut Sculpted Glider

    I just put the final coat of Danish oil on this rocker/glider I built for my sister and brother-in-law to celebrate the newest member of the family, born last December. The Black Walnut came from a tree that was struck by lightning in my parents' neighbor's back yard in West Virginia. The back...
