A few projects I've worked on recently. Items marked with a ★ are available.
Mortar, pestle and rolling pin.
A mortar and pestle made from bradford pear wood and a French style rolling pin made of silver maple.
This foot stool was built as an experiment to practice glue-less joinery. The legs are held on by angled stub tenons and the stringer uses wedged tenons to hold everything snug. The wood is a combination of locally harvested spalted hard maple and osage orange.
Turned from a large piece of osage orange, mounted on a copper pipe and set in a concrete base with a pump for our pond. Bonus slow motion video of the fountain in operation.
A drawer unit for my office that uses bookmatched slabs from a spalted silver maple for the drawer faces. The hand carved handles are made of flame figured pear and the carcasse is maple faced plywood.
Dyed bowl #1.
This bowl is about 16" in diameter and made of a single piece of lightly figured box elder. The exterior is dyed fire engine red and finished in a high gloss tung oil. The interior is oil and beeswax buffed to a medium shine. Auctioned off in support of the Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities.
A pen made using sweetgum seed pods embedded within epoxy.
A mystery wood bowl, perhaps apple or some other fruit wood that is heavily spalted. Finished in walnut oil and beeswax. 10" diameter.
A three legged occasional table with a solid top of heavily feathered walnut and ash legs. Finished with wipe on polyurethane.
