I want to thank everyone who helped this design come into being. Thank You. The Angel is made up of the following woods...

Well, I was asked to put together a blog on how I made my segmentd ring. Since I had to make a new one for myself, (first one too small) I thought I would go ahead and do a step by step picture tutorial. My first time ever doing something like this , so hope it comes out OK. Here goes; Wood Selection The first step in making the ring is deciding what woods to use. As we all know, the selection is quite large. One of the most important things is color, but the most important is hardne...
This table took a lot of thought and really stretched my skills but now that I see the end I know I could do it again better and faster!Background: a customer came to me with the need for a huge extendable table he had some walnut lumber left over from the building of his house and wanted to know if I could take on the job!I said yes pending a design, he said “here’s the lumber and can you make it with a trestle base” After examining the size of the lumber and getting approximate ...
Here is a piece of wood I received from Rastus I am trying to decide what it is going to become. Does anyone have any suggestions? Pieces are about 4 inches long and 3 wide at the widest. Re-Sawed to 1/8 inch thick for inlay. Here are the pics I took of it before and after I sliced it for inlay. Is it going to be Hearts? or maybe Angel Wings? Or could it end up as a Butterfly? Here is what it looks like with a litle Mineral Spirits wiped on it. I just love this w...

I misjudged the amount of tiles I had, so I manufactured some more yesterday. I guess I miscounted the bundles I had made up. I couldn’t find any to buy, so I made some. I made about 60 more tiles.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This is the area I have left to do in one corner of the main shop area. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Here’s some views of the tiles I made. I used some Black Ash instead of Oak, bu...
This lamp is just the coolest. The then ribbon movement and sweeping motion is phenomenal. 71” tall to the top of the shade The base is 39” x 24” It weighs 70 lbs As you can see we added turquoise throughout.
Getting closer to where we want to be
Okay here is one of the most tedious parts of this lamp. Here are pictures of how the lamp limb looked before we started shaping it to the base. There are several types of scribing tools available, but we have not been able to find one that works for us. To start the process, we find the point where the limb is the higest from the base. This is our starting point for the line that we draw to start shaping. We use a pencil compass for our scribing lines. The line has to stay level / perpe...
