My name is Ted. My wife, Katherine, is my creative inspiration. She gives me advice, guides me, and, probably most important, she lets me know, in the gentlest way possible, when my idea for a piece isn't necessarily what the piece wants to be. I love her dearly for all she is and all she has to offer.

My Dad was my woodworking inspiration. He created lamps and tables as a hobby. His creations were so inspiring, I finally (at the tender "young" age of 55, or so) decided to try to follow in his footsteps full-time. Only I chose to go beyond what my Dad created, and began making coat racks and coat trees, freeform sculptures, tables, floor and table lamps, and rustic fireplace mantels. I haven't been doing this very long, but this is truly one of the most enjoyable vocations I've ever had (I can finally appreciate now the gift my Dad was trying to instill in me so long ago of working in, and with, this kind of medium)! I marvel at the spirit I see in each and every piece I have the honor of working on as they go through their Renaissance into family heirloom quality works of art.

Microsoft Office Live has disabled my website. So, I've gone with a Facebook page instead. It is still under construction, but if you'd like to take a look, you can do so at:

I also have my own woodworking blog at http://zhawke.blogspot.com/

I just joined Lumberjocks and am looking forward to the network. Question: I’m trying to bore 3 1/2 inch diameter holes in 6 to 10 inch thick log slabs to hold wine bottles, and was wondering if any of you out there have any ideas on the best way to go about doing that? I’ve tried using a hole saw with mixed results (plus, this process is slow, labor intensive, and a little on the hair-raising side), and am considering using a self-feed drill bit of that diameter. If any of you have ideas/suggestions, they would be appreciated.
