  1. Oval Box (RO)

    Here is a box that i built in the Spring of last year… I am actually a bit ashamed to say I "ripped off" the idea. I saw a picture in a book from a friend of mine of boxes, from america, and i fell in love with this design… The one in the picture was round or according to the dimensions given...

  5. Sean's Box

    This is a keepsake box that I finally completed a couple weeks ago. It was supposed to be completed for Sean, my grandson, for his first Christmas. I was only a little late. I made it out of substrate covered with walnut burl veneer. Working entirely in that walnut veneer was challenging. The...
  6. Christmas Hope

    I finished this just in time to try and help out a family in need. Hopefully it will bring in a few dollars to help them out. One of a kind hand crafted artisan box made to assist Angie's family while she recovers from a recent accident and traumatic brain injury. Read her story here...
  7. Walnut burl bowl

    This walnut burl comes from a walnut orchard in the Central Valley of California. Got it from a friend who got some scraps from the owner of the orchard. Here is how I received it (sorry if these pics are too big; I sized them down, but they still seem big): Sliced the bottom off at an...
  8. End Tables

    In need of a place to store my laptop and my hockey card collection I designed and built 2 of these. One for me and one for my wife both identical except for the variations in the walnut burl veneer. I thought the diamond pattern on the sides would look cooler than it does but I like it ok...
  9. Lacewood and Walnut Burl

    I made this box from Lacewood. I use Wenge for the miter keys. I didn't want a handle to take away from the Lacewood, so I moved the hinge pins forward so that a gentle push on the back of the lid opens the box. Since this cut down on the available space inside the box, I felt it was...

  11. Walnut Burl Pens

    As I mentioned somewhere during the Pen Swaps first North American tour, I got a bunch of California walnut burl from Treebones in return for a couple completed pens (He's using some of the burl to make desk sets) This is the first batch I turned, from left to right in platinum, gold, black...
  12. Leopardwood and Canarywood Boxes

    Boxes are great for learning new techniques so that they can be applied to larger and more complicated projects. They are also a great way to showcase your skills as a woodworker and an artist, because they can easily serve as a blank slate for your imagination. It can be fun to add certain...
  13. Spirit wood carving

    This is my first wood carving. I was wondering if an experienced wood carver could give me some tips. I did this with a small knife, a larger knife and a few wood working chisels.
  14. Walnut Burl Box With Malachite Inlay

    Walnut Burl Box With Malachite Inlay 11" wide x 7" deep x 6" high I found a piece of Walnut Burl in the $1 per pound bin at my hardwood supplier (Hearne Hardwoods). I guess the big, ugly inclusion made it unsalable. I kept wanting to try a stone inlay and this piece seemed pretty interesting...
  15. Marquetry Clock

    This was a Christmas present for my wife last year - she has always been in love with clocks having Westminster chimes. The clock face was created from contrasting veneers using the design concept in the article by John Sedgwick, "Cutting Multi-Pointed 'Stars'", Canadian Marquetry, Dec. 1997...

  17. Wood & Lumber
    I am thinking about gluing up walnut and pine by butting up one piece to another to make a box with walnut corners. I have two questiosn regarding that. 1) Should I do a breadboard kind of joint or will glue hold well enough across the end grains without that ? 2) I was wondering if when...

    Just a video of me and the wooden beard and hair combs that I make. I met a local videographer and had a blast shooting this video! It's more of a general overview of me and how I got started doing what I do. A step by step tutorial it's not, but I'm extremely happy with how it came out and I...
