Demilune table Repair

 This Beautifully Carved Demilune table was meant to be attached to the wall. But the Owners were moving house and a vacuum cleaner cord took it down on it's nose and broke the front leg. I was able to restore it to it's former glory.

Showcase for my work

This cypress wall hung cabinet was originally used as my tool cabinet, but I didn't care much for that type of storage system. So I have removed the doors and used some of that wood to add a couple of asymmetrical shelves to showcase some of my woodturned bowls and hand carved spoons.

Let me know what you think in the comments section and if you like what you see here you can find out more about my shop by following me on Facebook and Pinterest.

Pintail Finished

I finished the Duckboat a while back but I just have written about it. It was a fairly easy boat to build and excellent first boat to build. I think it was a bit overbuilt, That seems to be a trait among the boats that were drawn by William Jackson. But then, they were mostly working boats built by working men. I chose this boat for stability not for speed. And that is what I got. I intended to use it for photography. And it is excellent for that.

I painted the outside with Rustoleum oil based paint. I only primed the inside. I didn't paint it. I did that to allow the wood to breath. In case the wood does absorb water from a scratch in the outside paint I didn't want it to be trapped by being encased in paint. This is my own opinion and I could be totally wrong but after 15 years of working on boats and wood homes I have seen a lot of rot caused by water getting into wood and not having a way out. This is part of the reason why I didn't fiberglass the hull or encapsulate the thing in epoxy. Eventually, water will find a way in. If it doesn't find it's way back out, rot will happen.

New work on RedBubble

I have been posting some new photography work on  A POD or Print on Demand website. I hope you take a look and if you see something you like you can purchase it straight from the site. They do very nice work. I have ordered several prints from them and they look even better than they do on screen!
