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
It’s Chestnut season and I found a Walnut scrap with a bit of sap wood… Perfect for making a little Chestnut dish. And I’m making more Chestnut-shaped chopstick rests.
I will be at Renegade Craft Fair in Los Angeles on December 10 & 11. It’s going to be fun!
Small Cocobolo box is available in my etsy shop.
I finished this Olive bowl a while ago, but finally got to list it in my etsy shop.
Maple bowl. It’s about 6 1/2″ in diameter. Available in my etsy shop.
Here’s another Kokeshi doll I made.
I LOVE putting a big sphere knob on a small box.
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
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
More mushrooms are available in my esty shop! Wooden Mushroom – Walnut and Orange Tree Wooden Mushroom – Walnut and Orange Tree
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.
Liquid Amber bowls fresh off the lathe! For now, one is listed here in my etsy shop.
A lot of Tea Light Holders/Stands are stocked. Go this page in my etsy shop!
These bowls came out from a Black Walnut log I purchased last month. Large bowl with Natural Edge is listed here in my etsy shop. This one above is listed here in my etsy shop. And this large and thick bowl is listed here.
Renegade Craft Fair this past weekend in Downtown L.A. was a huge success for me. Thank you everyone who purchased items from me and also who stopped by my booth to say hi! I really enjoyed meeting and talking to everyone. Some customers from July stopped by and told me … Continue reading
Wreath with tiny trees I turned on lathe. Nothing fancy, but I like it. My youngest baked the cake with her dad’s help. She emphasized that she is not the one who helped, but daddy helped her. I liked how it was not too sweet.
Getting small items ready for Renegade Craft Fair on December 12 and 13.
I’ve turned green wood bowls before, but I had never tried with Walnut. The tree was cut down only about two weeks ago. Can you tell how fresh and wet it was from the picture above? This bowl is sold already, but more Black Walnut bowls to come soon!
Deep bowl made of Orange tree. Listed in my etsy shop.
Apricot stock is getting low… and I probably won’t find Apricot trees for a long long time. The blocks I have left are small and cracked, but I managed to make some small bowls. They are great as catch alls or jewelry dishes! The one with bow ties in the … Continue reading
Mushrooms are quick and fun to turn, especially with interesting figures… like the dark ones in the center of the photo. They are Liquid Amber. I’m bringing these mushrooms to Handmade: Maker’s Market @ The Ecology Center.
I’ve been busy turning scraps into tree-shaped bottle stoppers and other items for Handmade: Maker’s Market at The Ecology Center.
Bowl made of Orange tree.
I turned legs and put them on the bottom of this pretty Apricot offcut to make this tiny desktop “Live-Edge table”. Perfect as a planter stand, but the burl surface is too pretty to cover up with a planter.
I love wooden pears… These ones are made of Spalted Sycamore. Stems are Walnut and handcarved. I had these pears sitting in my shop for months, and finally managed to add the stems. They are available at my etsy shop. I have larger ones coming up soon too.
I have listed these three Walnut bowls in my etsy shop. Walnut bowl 1 Walnut bowl 2 Walnut bowl 3
A very thick pine bowl with beautiful grain listed in my etsy shop now.
I had my first craft fair almost two weeks ago. I didn’t know what to expect, but at the end, I think I prepared pretty good. And it was so much fun! Definitely something I want to do again soon! The above picture is a collection of Natural-Edge Olive Bowls … Continue reading
I made myself a small bowl made of Liquidamber. Now it’s happily storing garlic in our kitchen.
Another salt cellar made of Primavera with Walnut lid. This one is a lot smaller than Lacewood Salt Cellars I posted earlier, but sometimes that’s all we need. It’s now listed in my etsy shop.
Two Lacewood salt cellars with Maple lids are listed in my etsy shop. One here, and the other here.
These Walnut bowls are not ready, but I couldn’t wait to show off the beautiful grains and colors, especially the big one!
Here’s another Liquidamber bowl; small one this time! It’s listed in my etsy shop. I’m almost out of Liquidamber (is it Liquid Amber or Liquidamber?). I didn’t think I end up liking this wood this much until I turned the first one. I like how the natural edge looks, but … Continue reading
2 1/2″ Olive box with Walnut Lid. It’s small! Perfect for keeping salt. I’m trying to prepare/build up my stock for Renegade Craft Fair so I’m not sure if I’m listing this to my etsy shop…
I was growing/turning mushrooms yesterday 😉
This bowl will be listed in my etsy shop soon.
This bowl is one of the Apricot bowls I turned months ago. It’s available at my etsy shop now.
I started with this spoon and some more last year, then got busy turning bowls and other things, but I finally finished it. It’s available in my etsy shop. And more spoons to come!
