  1. Musical Chair

    So here is my sculpted "Musical Chair". I have really been drawn to the asymmetrical, organic line of Art Nouveau lately and have applied some of what I've learned into a number of recent pieces. This chair is a large studio chair made from ribbon mahogany and tulip poplar. Note that the tulip...
  2. Experimenting : The Fusion Technique

    Last 2008 picture. I was fascinated by the piercing technique developped by Vriz in France during the 80's. The only thing I did not like was the nam, piercing. Piercing is a mistake and I did not like to use that term as the piercing was intended. With Patrick Edwards we finaly settle on the...
  3. Spalted Poplar Bowl

    Some friends cut down a massive tulip poplar this summer and I grabbed a couple of limbs to bring home. Not sure how long it had been sitting in their yard but I got it in July and threw it in the kiln. I got two pieces out and when I cut the corners off to make blanks I saw spalting, once I...
  4. Walnut Table w/dogwood branch inlays

    I designed and built this dining room table for clients who had a very large informal dining room and like to have large but casual dinner parties. The Claro Walnut top is a sequentially book matched set with some beautiful figure and is accented with black poplar for an ebony look. (I have a...
  5. Tulip Poplar Burl Bowl

    Here is another bowl i turned, this one is out of tulip poplar burl. It is sanded up to 400 Grit, and the finish is mineral oil and past wax. The Tulip poplar turned great, and did not need much sanding to get it smooth. More at http://outdoorinsider.org/2013/03/06/tulip-poplar-burl-bowl/
  6. Wood candles turned from tulip poplar

    A decorator wanted to accessorize the space around a gas fireplace. She asked me to turn some imitation candles since real ones would get soft from the heat of the fireplace. I turned these "fake tapers" from tulip poplar. They will be displayed in a six-place iron candle holder. I expect to...
  7. Lidded Spalted Tulip Poplar Bowl

    I got some poplar back in July and got it in the kiln. The other day I got the first piece out to see what it looked like and this is what I found. Really nice spalting and colors had formed. The lid is spalted sycamore I think it wasn't labeled so it might be something else and the finial is...
  8. Weekend turnings / Beads of Courage

    So I actually got some shop time in on the lathe this weekend and was able to finish my Beads of Courage submission. For those not familiar, go to www.beadsofcourage.org . It's an organization that donates crafted items to kids going through various treatments. When they receive a treatment...
  9. End Tables

    These tables are based on the ones on the cover of Tables by Anthony Guidice. I love the simplicity of the design. The tables featured Dovetailed Mortise and Tenon, which came out great, but I wouldn't say the same for the drawer dovetail work! The legs are actually recoverd Tulip Poplar from...
  10. "From the Bay" Blanket Chest

    This piece is along the lines of the Shadows of Night cabinet. Since I milled and dried my own lumber, the curved hardwood bent laminations that make up the case are from local Chesapeake Bay trees, hence the inspiration for the carvings front and back (take a close look at the spooky eyes in...
  11. Gunga Din -- Water Carrier for the Rugby team

    This is the sort of project you get when LJ browsing and a real need meet in a perfect storm of sawdust. My son recently started playing rugby at college. As a club sport it lacks a budget, resources, etc. ,At one of the matches, I noticed that water bottles were carried on and off the field...

    A simple carcase I'm still hunting for space to end the clutter in my 1-car garage shop. I found some when I moved part of the PVC ductwork from my dust collector a bit so I could open the overhead garage door again. In that space, between the dust collector (and its separator can), hoses and...

    Updated Lumber Rack Projects !! I have moved.. and moved a considerable amount of WOOD! I have updated my lumber rack projects with new photos of the current racks. My new shop is the entire basement, and to say its bigger than my last basement shop is an understatement. I have four times the...

    veneer-thin poplar scraps glue-up A couple of years ago I built a standing floor cabinet foolishly out of all poplar (not true poplar, e.g. black poplar (Populus *************************) or white poplar (Populus alba), but tulip poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera), the stuff you (and I) get from Home Depot). It...

    hanging the doors, and some revelations Here's my most boring time-lapse yet - sanding up the cabinet doors to flush the rails and stiles, and prepare it for finishing. Speaking of… something I'd heard whispered around here a few times came to mind the other day while trying to get extremely...
  19. Hand Tools
    I am going to build a new workbench. It gets too cold in the winter to be in the garage to do much woodworking in the garage, and all the tools are ice cold. So I thought I would build a workbench specifically for working with hand tools in my basement, I don't want to deal with the dust from...
