  1. Commision Cane

    Got another commision job from the same guy that got the Gavel and Gavel Box projects. Not sure what kind of wood the shaft is. It came from my step sons tree in his yard. I get it over 2 years ago and it has been sitting in the corner of the garage since. The guy the cane is for is LARGE, so I...
  2. Mystery Wood - Trying to identify

    I've made two turnings from this wood that was salvaged from a friends, neighbors, firewood pile. He had collected many blocks of similar size from a local central Indiana lumber mill, although I don't know which one. Also in the pile were many blocks of red and white Oak. These are lighter in...
  3. Joiners Mallet

    I saw the mallet video by ThirdCoastCraftsman on YouTube and was inspired by his design. I am unsure what type of wood this is, but I found it in the form of a pallet here in Japan. It's one of the hardest and heaviest woods I've ever worked, as finished it is 3" square T mallet end with 8"...
  4. Emily

    "Emily" is about 9" long -4-1/2 tall and 3-1/4 deep, Candle holders are -about 4-1/2 " diameter and 3 '"tall. Sorry unknow species for all parts. Freehand cut and then lightly torched with a very light spray poly coat to keep the " burning" from becoming migratory. Lettering designed to fit...
  5. Beer Hogs

    These have a secret; They are beer HOGS! Size is about 5/8 inch wide. 2-3/4 tall and 4-3/4 long. Design by T & E designs. They look like an ordinary shelf hog. However with the right angle; they will open your favorite bottled brew. Think upside down. Finish is walnut oil, food grade. I am...
  6. Unknown wood Vase now IDENTIFIED

    Unknown wood Vase: 8 1/2" H x 6 3/4 D THIS WOOD HAS NOW BEEN IDENTIFIED AS PERSIMMON. I was lucky today as I was going out to get my mail I saw a certified arborist at my neighbor looking at a huge Live Oak in his front yard, so I asked if he could stop next door when he was done here? He...
  7. Hand carved treenware

    Here's a bit of carving I've been doing lately with ax, adze, knife and gouge. The square bowl/platter is aspen, all spoons are maple and the round bowl is ash. The ash bowl was carved from the end of a 2 inch thick board leftover form a recent table project, so bone dry. I don't think I'll...
  8. Heart Ornament

    This is my daughters first scroll saw project. It is a Purpleheart and Yellowheart Christmas ornament that she made for her mother. It has a couple coats of garnet shellac and I bent a brass brad and CA glued it to the top to slip a hook through.
  9. The Lady of the Garden.

    A great project from red beech driftwood. Nice wood to work and takes detail well. Carved with knives over about a 2 week period, off and on. It represents a woman who does a lot of gardening and has plants growing out of her hair and arum lilies around her neck. An urban female wood spirit...
  10. Wooden lamp

    Tuning my bandsaw I ended up with some 1//8" resawn pine. What to do with it? This is the result. Wife hates it because she thinks it looks too much like "country style" what ever that is. I'am asking your opinion.
  11. Platform Bed | Twin

    This is a twin size platform bed made from oak wood. It has 3 drawers for storage and a MDF platform edged in oak. The three drawer pedestal has drawers on one side for those small rooms where the bed must go against the wall on one side. The other side is just a false panel. The false panel...

  13. Box with Wooden Hinges

    Have I mentioned that I hate hardware? I don't know what it is but steel and brass frustrate me. Although there is some truly beautiful hinges and knobs out there, and you really can't beat those heavy duty, silent drawer slides, or the adjustability of European hinges, something about them...
  14. See, I've been busy

    The dark walnut piece was the hardest to turn and the spalted maple that split. The dark walnut was out of crotch wood and was rock hard. But it came out nice with a coat of waterlox and rub on polyurethane made it sparkle. jockmike
  15. Un-MAGIC Wands

    For Druid! As was suggested by a fellow sawdust manufacturer; after the signs, I had to make wands. These are to be party favors. They were made from the firewood pile, include apple, a few flowering cherry, and some, just unknown. The diameter at the handle is from about 1 inch to 1-1/2...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hey, fellow LJs! We had a customer send some wood to be used in a set of rings for himself and his wife. The wood comes from New York. The customer isn't sure what kind of wood it is. From what I can tell, this must have been a fallen limb. It has some spalting going on and the wood is just...
  17. Woodturning
    Hello, I'm finally ready for a lathe. I'll want to learn everything buy pen making. I REFUSE TO MAKE PENS and have made a pact with a buddy to never, EVER do that. ;) Bowls, spindles, whatever. I've read a lot of previous threads, but 99% of them seem to be about current models, sales and...
  18. Wood & Lumber
    I live in Brentwood CA 94513. It's in northern CA/ the Bay Area. I found this firewood for free and picked it up but I am dying to know what kind of wood it is. We do a lot of farming out here with many orchards but there are also a lot of natural trees. I've been going back and forth with my...
