Cherry Table

By Jim

I took the opportunity over the holidays to take pictures of the cherry table I had made for my parents some time back.  I got a nice piece of curly cherry for the top and drawer front.  I used analine dye instead of stain so the figure wouldn’t be obscured.  It was also my first real attempt at hand-cut half-blind dovetails on the drawer.

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.

Curly Maple Bowl

By Jim

I turned this bowl very thin out of a solid block of curly maple. It features a cocobolo disk in the bottom and two burned in rings on the rim. Some companies sell specialty tools to burn rings in turnings like this, but if you read the description, they’re just pieces of wire with wooden handles. Visit my shop made tools page to see mine.
