  3. White Tulipwood Ring with Spalted Maple Lining

    I received some veneer samples recently, and among a lot of pretty sheets was this one white tulipwood. I'm 90% sure that dye has been used here but it looks so natural and the white-on-white figuring has transitions that resemble a light bronze metal. I couldn't be happier with the finished...
  4. Remembrance

    I had a idea to make or should I say turn a poppy as it is that time of the year so I dug out some tulip wood and beech I had laying around.

  6. At last - cutting boards from Yorkshire!

    There are, as at January 9th 2012, 774 projects labelled with 'cutting board' on Lumberjocks. I thought I ought to see what the attraction is, so 2012 saw me in the 'shop knocking some out.

  11. Something for Grandma

    This is a box I just completed for my Grandma. It's nothing fancy or innovative. I wanted to keep it clean and simple because I know that is what she likes most, so I took inspiration from Andy's designer boxes because they are just that. My Grandma and I are 3,000 miles apart and as you can...
  12. A Plethora Of Pens

  13. Resawing Tulipwood Log
