Nantucket Basket by My Daughter

My youngest child (she turned 12 last week!) finished weaving her second basket. And this is her first “lidded” basket. Isn’t she good? I made molds based on measurements of what she wants to store in the basket (wallet, phone, pen, note pad, small towel) and prepared the supplies. This … Continue reading

Small White Oak Organizer

I have a growing collection of thin scrap wood. And I want to turn that into something practical and beautiful to look at. So here’s a small organizer I made this week with it. It can sit on top of desk or in drawer.

Walnut Hasp & Peg Set

I made a set of Walnut hasp & peg for a basket weaver in Japan. This set is most likely to be a part of a Nantucket basket. Peg is turned on lathe, and hasp is rough cut on scrolled sew, hand carved, then sanded.

Nantucket Basket Purse

This is my first “Lidded” Nantucket basket purse. It was weaved on 8″ Martha Lawrence mold. I started with making the bases with Birdseye Maple back in March, weaved countless hours, carved the hasp, turned the peg on lathe, bended those rims & handle (finally after enough failures), and turned … Continue reading

My First Melon Basket

About six years ago, one of the woodworkers I met at Naval base Woodshop gave me a basket weaving book. I have opened and read it many times since then, and I finally decided to weave one of them. This one is called “Melon Basket”. I changed the size of … Continue reading

Console Table

Console table for my sister. It’s made of Maple to match the art frame on the wall, which I made for her a few years ago.

White Oak Cake Pedestal

My friend broke or lost a cake pedestal, but she still has the glass dome so my mission was to make this pedestal so the dome perfectly sits on it. It’s made of White Oak.

More Small Olive Round Boxes

I LOVE Olive. But small Olive tree trunks that are perfect for making these small boxes (salt cellars) are gone. I have a few more in process, but that will be it for now. I’m planning to take these boxes to Renegade Craft Fair in December, then list whatever left … Continue reading

My Son’s Built-In Closet

I’ve been working on a small builtin cabinets in my son’s room. This little space used to have builder-grade closet with mirror doors, which we didn’t like at all so we removed them as soon as we bought the house. Once doors for the space on top and toe kick … Continue reading

My First Nantucket Basket

I’ve done some Pine Needle basket weaving before, but this is my first Nantucket basket. This kind of basket requires a mold, base, rim, etc., so I spent quite some time planning, making tools and supplies, but it was so worth it. The molds in picture above are the first … Continue reading

Maple Kitchen Utensil Stand

I turned a tall kitchen utensil stand for our kitchen. We’re building an addition to extend our kitchen and a full laundry room in a few months (Laundry is currently in a corner of garage). It’s been our dream to have this addition since we purchased this house five years … Continue reading

Maple Vase with Natural Edge

It’s an unfamilier shape to me, but I got inspired by the crazy bark this Maple has. Getting the right shape (at least to me) is so important, but it’s often difficult to see the shape side way! I don’t know how many times I bend my neck to check … Continue reading

My Woodshop

I still have lots of things to make and upgrade in my garage wood shop, but it’s organized, easy to use, and happy to be in here now.

Chestnut Chopstick Rests

I think Fall is more appropriate for Chestnut, but sometimes I just need to make what pops up in my head: Chestnut Chopstick rests! And they are available in my etsy shop. The purpose of chopstick rests is to avoid chopsticks from touching the table so every time you rest … Continue reading

Furniture – My Old School Project

One of my school projects from years ago. It’s made of African Mahogany, but partially Honduras Mahogany because I ruined something and ran out of African Mahogany, which was no longer available at that time. I don’t remember exactly why I chose this wood because I don’t even like it. … Continue reading

Kokeshi Doll

I made a Kokeshi doll for the first time. She is a bit chubbier than I pictured in my head, but still happy with her. Going through the scrap bins and selecting a perfect piece of wood, and imagining what this Kokeshi would look like was so exciting and fulfilling. … Continue reading

Welcome 2016

Happy new year, everyone! I climbed Mt. Woodson with my oldest daughter to see the first sunrise of the year! I really enjoyed it in spite of my lower body pain I’m having as I write this. My daughter almost didn’t have courage to jump to Potato Chip rock from … Continue reading
