  • Flag Display Boxes

    The best friend and I worked on making a couple of flag display boxes this weekend. First one is Walnut and the second one is Cedar.

  • Making "bell" ornaments

    Some "bell" ornaments I am making to fill an order. These are Marble Wood and Wenge. They will be engraved with Christmas 2017 and will be finished with gold hardware.

  • 'Tis the season... for a new obsession

    I have started making these ornaments. These things are a blast. MUCH more freedom to be creative than pens.

    I kind of feel like I'm cheating since doing these from a kit requires far less skill that turning them from solid wood, but they are a hit so far and I can make them twice as fast from the kits. I can also charge a little less since there is a lot less work that goes in to them.

    Display tree with some I have made so far.

    Ornament my daughter made. It is Purple Heart, Bois D'Arc, and red and blue crafting sticks.

    Red Palm with a Cherry cap and acrylic celtic knot.

    Yellow dyed stabalized Maple with Cherry upp and lower parts with acrylic bands.

    Acrylic "bell"

    Cedar "bell" with red and green bands

    Marble wood, Maple, Bubinga and blue crafting sticks,

    Purple Heart with Black Walnut upper and lower parts. I burnished the Purple Heart with a leather strap to bruing out the color.
  • Floating shelf pen stand

    Had not seen this before. The two "pens" on the outside corners are just dowel, turned, finished and fitted with spare pen pieces. I tried to create the same shadow lines that actual pens get.

  • Marble on Marble Wood pen

    Pen is Marble Wood with a band of Carrera Marble in the center of the upper. I wish the marble had more veining. What is there is too faint to show up in the picture.
