    resin maple and cherry box

    Finished this one up. The box is cherry, the top is maple and resin and it's lined with walnut. Teaching STEM I don't have many girls that take my class. If a girl takes my class for three years and isn't a turd :) I started making them a box for a graduation present a couple of years ago. I've...

    Walnut milling

    It was a beautiful day in glorious East Tennessee yesterday so I thought I'd get outside and do a little milling. Milled up two walnut logs into some quarter sawn and flat sawn stuff. I also split a nice eastern red cedar for my BIL. Got right at 150 bd/ft. We did find two nails that...

    I've been using up a few shorts. Figured these would be better than the burn pile!

    While several of you were attending the FWW gathering, I was at my family reunion which was also in Indiana (Brown County State Park). Every year at our family reunion we have a corn hole/bean bag tournament. The final two teams then play a ‘surprise’ game for the final round to determine the...

    Top Cabinet for the Dresser

    The bedroom furniture project is complete (except for the two long bed rails that will convert the crib to a full size bed .. but no rush for these). Nice little top cabinet that dresses up the dresser (in my opinion) and will give the grand daughter lots of room for the 'girly' stuff. This...

    small keepsake box

    I made a table a few weeks ago for a friend from a door that was her great-grandmothers. I had to shorten the door and had a piece of the stile left over so I made her this little keepsake box. The top is the piece of wood left over. I think it's fir, but I'm not positive. It has some really...

    2-in-1 bed for the daughter as the baby is on board

    Started this in advance, anticipating what has now become a reality. Now have a deadline to meet so the pressure is on. Starting here: The sides will be detachable and replace with longer pieces to hold a full size mattress when the crib is no longer needed. I am skipping the making of a...

    Some Walnut

    I picked up a bunch of walnut this past spring and I'm finally getting around to finishing up some bowls from it over the past couple weeks. This stuff cuts like butter and once the oil hits it the grain really pops! I also finished up an oak bowl that had been laying around on the floor for...

    Couple of Bowls

    These aren't the best of pics (possted them on Instagram from my phone in the shop last night) but decided it's been kinda slow around here so I'd post them anyway. I had some free time last night and the humidity blew away for a bit so the shop was only 94 degrees. I have a stack of bowls that...
