Rustic box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Rustic boxVery heavy wood, dont know what it is. Could be wattle ?
Again, acquired from the old cabinetmaker friend, and if it was something
he valued enough to keep, it might be something “of quality”. In which case
I havent done it justice.Don't like book-matching for lids, so used a leather that
matches some of the lighter-color wood.Have more of the wood, but no plans to cut it til it's time for the
saw to be sharpened anyway.
update: the saws went out for sharpening yesterday. “The master”
says he sends them every year about this time. Probably wont
slice the rest up til next November.

Mountain Dulcimer

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Mountain DulcimerI recently finished building this mountain dulcimer and it is an absolute joy to play! Dulcimers are relatively simple to build, similar to a guitar but easier. It has a black walnut back/sides, peghead, and fingerboard, a reclaimed redwood soundboard, eucalyptus red gum binding, and a honey locust burl endcap. I purchased the fretboard from Folkcraft Instruments, but I did all the fretwork myself. The tuners are Gotoh; it also has a buffed wax finish.
Overall, this dulcimer has really sparked my interest in musical instrument build!
Thanks for looking, any comments or questions are welcome!

Another Consul Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Another Consul Table I got this slab at auction for $20 with another slab off of the same tree. The other is not live edge, different part of the tree, and will make a fine matching coffee table. 1 square tubing metal base with the mesh shelf.

First turned bowl

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


First turned bowlI got a lathe a while back, and a new chuck for it last week. I also had an 8/4×8 x 8 chunk of ash that had a knot on one end so I didn't want to use it for anything else. In between cutting and gluing up bookcases, I played with the lathe a bit and came up with this bowl.It's rough, and there are a couple catches as I was teaching myself to use a skew, but I'm pretty proud of it for a first effort.Finished with a couple coats of shellac, and that's it.
