Lamp made from floor drain cover and reclaimed hardwoodWhile Buying materials for my studio at the local hardware store, the cast iron floor drain cover came to my attention. I was attracted to the vertical slots of the drain. I feel that there is something that can be done with them and the wood. Well here it is. I design and build a lamp out of them. The legs are from 10mm round brass, and i used led light. Finished in oil. Hope you like it.

Coasters and Holders

Coasters and HoldersThought I would take some of my scrap shop wood and do something with it. I made a form out of some 1/2 plywood where I could make up to eight coasters at a time. I cut some dark walnut and made the holder and put a piece of walnut in each coaster, all different.
I finished the holder with lacquer.
Enjoy

Story Book Box

Furnished content.

Story Book BoxI told my wife, Luann, I wanted to make a box that looked like a book. She jumped on that idea and we came up with a story that we wanted. I told Luann I had enough room for seven pairs of pages in the book. She chose what she wanted on each pair and did the artwork. She also wrote out the songs, but just imported the scriptures. She was afraid that she would make too many mistakes and have to start over too often. When some others saw what I was working on they wanted one too. I ended up making thirteen of them. We decided that we would give this book to her dad who is a retired pastor. Only two were gifts, the others were sold. The boxes were fairly simple to make, but the pages took a half hour to laser each one. I think that I had twice the time with the laser than I had in building.Thanks for looking.
