I decided to make a 4.75” chess set and board. I knew it would take a while and it has taken me about 30 minutes per pawn to turn them not including 5 coats of wipe on poly with dry time between. So far I’ve turned all of the white pawns, which are curly maple. This is the first one I turned and it’s looking pretty rough, but I’ve gotten much better since I started. It all started with these turning templates that I made. I found the design for the pieces on the web...
The box is 4” square and made from canary wood and walnut, with a birdseye maple and walnut top. This started as an idea for the wifes Christmas present and grew to a little monster. I first decided on the box size being determined buy the length and thickness of the piece of canary wood. the piece was about 28 in long 4 1/2” wide and 1/2” thick so 4” square gave me some screw up room. At this time I figured I would use a 1/4” piece of plywood for the bo...

Here’s one of a gentleman that wanted one of his youth to give to his Mother. He has a lot of feeling for her.
I had all these great ideas about this workbench, and how i was going to make it….sort of missed a BIG mistake. The leg vise i made, didn’t clear the top drawer. Such a DUMB mistake. Unfortunately i didn’t spot it until i was too far along. So i panicked and cut the vise to fit. After sleeping on it, i decided that too was really DUMB. but i had already cut it…. Look for yourself, please don’t laugh too hard (or if you do, don’t post it) BEFORE...
It’s hard to believe that after two years of very hard work Dennis Zongker and I have finally received word that the book is at the printers… Working with Dennis has been filled with learning, laughing, and stressing over deadlines and in the end worth every second of it.

He always pushes so hard and his dream was to one day be able to write a book. Well h...
Day one at David Marks finishing class in beautiful Santa Rosa. David and wife Victoria are terrific hosts, the class is small with an interesting variety of folks, and the weather couldn’t be better. And hey! I’m on vacation!

My goal is to establish a broad foundation in wood finishi...
