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 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

Mushrooms

More mushrooms are available in my esty shop! Wooden Mushroom – Walnut and Orange Tree Wooden Mushroom – Walnut and Orange Tree

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.

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

Black Walnut Bowls of Six

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 in DTLA

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

Handmade Holiday Wreath

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.

Turning Green Wood Bowl

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!

Decorative Items: Mushrooms

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.

Apricot Live-Edge Planter Stand

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.

Wooden Pears!

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.

Dust Brushes

These dust brushes made of Maple and natural hog bristles turned out pretty nice. Long one is listed here and short ones are here. I also made two standing dust brushes made of Walnut, but I sold them at the craft fair two weeks ago. I wish I had taken … Continue reading

Renegade Craft Fair in LA

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

Small Primavera Salt Cellar

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.

Family of Liquidamber Bowls

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

Olive Box with Walnut Lid

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…

Cherry Wood Spoon

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!
