I made this for my wife for our fifth wedding anniversary as the traditional gift is wood.  It’s made from 126 pieces of walnut and maple, plus one ebony plug in the base.

I made this box to test a box joint jig I was making for another project.  You can see the box joints in the detailed picture.

Paduak, Purpleheart & Red Oak Pens

By Jim

Some early pens I made as gifts.  I’ve made many pens and given most of them away since then.  A different pen is the only thing I’ve sold to date.

Madrone Candlesticks

By Jim

I bought a couple of pieces of madrone on eBay before really knowing what madrone looked like and what I was going to do with them.  They turned out to be beautiful samples.  I turned them into candlesticks with a simple shape as a friend had gotten me into Danish Modern design at the time.

Goblet

By Jim

This was my first attempt as a goblet.  I’m not sure what wood it is as I inherited the piece.  I gave it to my mother-in-law who admired it and called it the “Jesus Cup” in reference to Indiana Jones and the Holy Grail.

Cherry Dish

By Jim

A dish made of solid cherry.  I purposely turned this with fairly thick walls.  I has three turned rings in the center and another three on the top of the rim.  If you move it around in the light, you can see that this piece of cherry has a bit of curl.

Bubinga Seed Pot

By Jim

This one of my best pieces yet.  I made this seed pot as a gift for my sister.  The main body is from a gorgious piece of bubinga.  The base and rim are gaboon ebony.  The feature ring is chakte viga (a.k.a. paela), shedua and maple.

Turned & Carved Box from India

By Jim

Again, I wish I made it, but I didn’t.  This turned and carved box features a threaded lid and intricate carving detail.  I’m not sure what kind of wood this is either.

Turned & Carved Bowl from India

By Jim

I wish I made this bowl, but I didn’t.  I went to India for work and picked up this bowl for next to nothing.  I’m not sure what kind of wood it is.  It looks similar to walnut.  The carving detail is great!

Bloodwood Yoyo

By Jim

I had a couple of scraps of bloodwood and a yoyo kit, so I figured “what the heck?”
