I was visiting my parents house recently and took pictures of some thing that I made long time ago.

A vase / pencil holder from English oak (Quercus robur). I cut this burl from a large fallen tree. It formed around the base of a branch, which was almost completely rotten. I cleaned the inside, removed the bark and ended up with this hollow form. I left it unfinished.

I made this owl image as a birthday present when I was about 13. It is pyrographed on a piece of silver (European) birch (Betula pendula).

The floor that I helped to lay is English oak and European hornbeam (Carpinus betulis). Only a fragment shown. The perimeter of the room has different pattern that makes the entire floor look like a carpet. Freshly cut hornbeam has very light, almost white color and extremely fine grain. It has soiled and darkened over time.

The knife was made from black locust (Robinia pseudacacia) and a piece of saw blade. It is about 10 cm long. Black locust has beautiful golden luster when polished well. I made similar knife with mahogany (?) handle for my dad.
