This is a mug that I made. It is made out of cedar.
This pen has inlays of clovers on it. The wood is curly maple, with the inlays being dyed basswood.
This is a little ornamental snowman I made. The body is made from Maple, and the hat I made from Bocote. The arms are toothpicks.
This is a segmented bowl that I turned. It has 3 different types of wood. It has Purple Heart, Zebra wood, and Brazilian Cherry.
Corn cob pen
This pen is not made of wood. I still used my wood lathe to make it; however, it is made from a corn cob. Yes, an actual corn cob. It is completed by getting a corn cob (with the corn removed) and stabilizing/hardening the cob. Then it is drilled, turned, and polished the same way wooden pens are done.
I made this out of a piece of walnut. I then used an Early American stain to bring out the color and finished it with high friction polish. This was a gift for my sister.
I made this rattle for my daughter. It is made out of Maple, and I put three captive rings on it.
This is an abstract design that I turned. I haven't decided what to do with it yet. I will probably make a Christmas tree decoration with it. It is roughly the size of a dollar bill.
This is a beautiful exotic wood called Bocote. I really like the grain pattern of this style of wood.
Exceptionally Curly Koa
Koa is a wood from Hawaii. This piece has a lot of curl to it. The amount of curl it has, this piece could truly be called fiddleback.
Spalted Tamarind Cigar Pen
This wood is called Tamarind.
Another Spalted Tamarind
This one is a better example than the above one. It shows the light nature of the wood, with the spalt (intentional rot) going through it.
This is a bowl and lid I made from a piece of cherry
I made this bowl out of Jobillo, which is an exotic wood from Central America.
I made this bowl, and it had a lot of spalt, which I like. I am not sure what type of wood it is. The piece was found on the side of the road. I thought it was maple, but while working with it, it didn't turn like maple. Either way, it is a nice bowl. It is a larger bowl, about 12 inch diameter.
These pens are designed to resemble bullets. The top one is actually a 50 caliber shell. The bottom one is designed to resemble a 7.62 mm round.
This pen is made out of Jade. The box is Rosewood; however, I did not make the box.

None of these are made with wood. The first one on the left is made of Turquoise. The middle one is made from the antler of a white tailed dear. The last one is the horn of an Indian River Buffalo.
This pen is made from the skin of an Arizona Rattlesnake.
Wedding gift pens
I made this set of pens for my Uncle and now Aunt for their wedding. The one on the left is made from curly Cherry, and has an exceptional curly Koa accent. The one on right is made of Walnut, and has an accent of curly Cherry (the same board as the other pen was made out of).
