Plywood Rocking Chair

In this video I used my grandpa’s plans to make a rocking chair planter. The rocking chairs are made out of 1/4″ plywood.

Lichtenberg Wood Burning – Myrtlewood Platter

In this video I made a Myrtlewood serving platter. After cutting it out on the bandsaw I rounded over the edges with a router, and drilled a hole in the handle with a forstner bit. I then sanded it up to 220 grit, before moving on to the burning process. The burner I’m using is new model from Conestoga Works, it uses electricity to burn the wood. I put a link below to the Conestoga Works website. This is a very safe way to make fractal burns in wood.

DIY Woodworking Project – Myrtlewood Mirror

In this video I made two Myrtlewood mirrors. I used a bandsaw to cut out the shape, and a router to round over the edges before sanding. On the one mirror I used a Lichtenberg burner to decorate it.

Salton Sea Hatchet

Salton Sea Hatchet

In this video I made a hatchet out of a piece of wood we found at the Salton Sea down in southern California. I show a few clips of the shore line, and the surrounding area. I found the Damascus steel on Ebay and thought it was a good fit. I used a piece of Cocobolo for the wedge, and wrapped the handle with braided leather.
