Lidded Yew Box

Yew wood is great wood to turn and very hard although it is considered a softwood. A friend of mine in Ireland sent me the yew wood along with some bog oak and bog yew. Yew is very dense and has great color red and cream are a great contrast with each other. These types of boxes are great skill builders and have endless shape and design potential.

Miniature Mrtylewood Vase

Miniature Myrtlewood Vase.This wood turning project takes about five minutes and is a great way to use up your scraps. The pin chuck I use in the video can be purchased from most wood turning supply companies.

Hamburger Press

Maple and Redwood hamburger press. Great for those summer sliders on the BBQ. This project takes about an hour to complete. I 3 inch PVC pipe is used in the interior and use a food safe finish like Salad Bowl Oil Finish to complete your press.

Cocobolo Box

Small lidded box made out of Cocobolo wood. Super hardwood with a beautiful finish. Be careful if you have never worked with this type of wood before. Some are allergic to the wood and it can cause a rash.
Cocobolo wood is extremely dense and does not take finish very well. A simple wax finish is great and will keep a shine on the piece for a long time.
