Knot All There

This "bowl" was turned from a section of an ash log given to me by a neighbor. During the turning a hidden knot and bark inclusion were exposed. Rather than simply pitch it into the firewood pile, I completed the turning. While it isn't very functional it does start some interesting conversations.

The metal portion of these bottle stoppers are 100% FDA approved kitchen-grade solid stainless steel. They are designed to fit a variety of bottles including wine, olive oil, and vinegar cruets. Some customers even use them for bath oil bottles. Their unique flat foot allows them to stand upright by themselves. The tops of these stoppers are made from a variety woods and acrylic.

Steampunk Pens

Steampunk, is a subgenre of science fiction, or more correctly science fantasy, that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. These Bolt Action Pens combine Antique Pewter and Copper with Tigerwood to create my concept of "What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner."

Nested Six-Window Ornament

In 2011 David Reed Smith published an article detailing the technique for turning what he titled a Six-Window Ornament. My variation of his design nests one Six-Window Ornament inside another; the inner ornament is free to turn.

Gear Shift Pen

Designed to appeal to a car enthusiast this Antique Brass and Sapele wood pen has a gear shift lever to extend and retract the point. When writer’s block sets in; you can rev up, rumm rumm rumm, while you run through the gears (note: engine sounds are not included).
