I thought I would post up some of my more recent work. Even though it is not nearly as nice as the pieces you all are posting up on here, I enjoy the work, and love the rustic log style furniture.
This is a cutting board I made from red oak. Simple, thick, and most importantly, the wife loved it!
Some fishing lures I have made. All are hand carved and sanded.
I made this blanket chest for our living room. The pictures make the top look VERY yellow, in person it is a lot more natural. I still have yet to apply a clear coat to the log frame.
Working right now as a game board chest. I also have to shave off the drips and glaze the underside.
Shadow box for my Civil War cannon plate. The top piece was not glued in at the time of the photograph, as I had to first rivet on the brass description plate to the standoff that is just below the plate itself. The backing is made of 2 1/4" thick foam and covered in aquamarine crushed velvet.
I am in the middle of working on another shadow box, this one will be for my dad's 1968 shotgun.
Not really woodworking, but this is an antler lamp I made last fall. I am not a hunter, but bought these antlers from a company in Montana that collects and sells shed antlers to the public. The lampshade is deerskin leather. I bought the bulb kit from Lowes, and the bulb was from my hall closet. Please note that no light bulbs were killed for the making of this lamp.
The fishing rod stand I am working on currently. Still have yet to install the backing.
An old wooden ammo box that I restored.
The bar I made for our living room. When we are moved into the new log home, the face will be done in stone stack, and the corners will be log. I am building the two cubbies into wine racks as we speak. It also has a live edge top now, too.
This is a coffee K-cup dispenser I made for the kitchen. It has no metal in it at all (everything was dowel joined together), and features a wooden counter weight to keep the lower drawer shut (the drawer closes on it's own). When you remove a cup and let the drawer close, another cup drops down into place.
