  1. Projects Marble Padauk Bowl

    This 5x3” bowl is African Marble Padauk. This is not common coloring for this wood. Wood is also extremely oily. It took almost 50 coats. Had to remove finish 7 times due to finish not sticking to wood.

    This is one of my wife’s favorite bowls. It’s a 6”x4.5” Cocobolo ” Honey Pot.” Wood come from Central America and the pictures are not as good as seeing this one in person. Bowl is gorgeous!

  7. Square bowl Upside-down with compartment

    I saw this project somewhere, can't quite remember, but I wanted to make it. So I took a mental picture and to the shop I went. My first attempt but I thought I would give it a try. I had a square piece of yellow cedar (not sure about the measurements just grabbed it from the junk pile and...

    A very nice walnut pedestal bowl made from two pieces of walnut salvaged in the mid 90s from a farm in North Carolina. The original walnut log was transported to me in the trunk of an old Cadillac.

    I used the natural end of a York Gum Burl turning blank and cast with Alumilite WaterClear. Added a bit of gold flake to the Alumilite. Finished wood portion with Mylands friction polish. The gold flakes look pretty cool through the light.
  12. Ship's Wheel Clock

    Here's a project for people that like to do spindle turning and segmented turning. I'd say, though, that there's more woodworking than woodturning in this project. The photo shows the prototype that I recently finished which is 15-1/2" diameter. The The clock in this version is a 5-1/2" brass...
  13. Cyrpress Wood Bowl with taper cut

    This bowl sold the minute I got a finish on it. The Cypress tree had died standing and remained that way for a year. Talk about cracking! If you read my profile you'll understand that I don't adhere to conventional drying times but I must observe and seal cracks over a period of several weeks...

  18. Pen Press

    I made a pen press using a Horizontal toggle clamp and some scrap material I had laying around the shop. The pen press works great and is a lot easier to use than a pistol grip clamp. Here is a link to the full build video :
  19. Amazon Dot With Wings! Well....little walnut wings

    Like most of us, I look for any reason to use wood. I thought the living room Amazon Dot would look better in some Walnut! A little winged bowl with a hole for connections in the back. Turned, sanded to 600p, then finished with mineral oil. The next design will be made to look like a flower and...
  20. Lid for Old Glass Jar - Brazilian Cherry & Alaskan Yellow Cedar

    This is a lid that I turned for an old glass jar. The lid was first laminated out of Brazilian Cherry and Alaskan Yellow Cedar. Then it was turned, and the metal lid was glued inside (the wood top is basically just a cover for the tin lid). Very quick & easy project, that turned out pretty neat!
