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!
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
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.
Little shelf I made with Apricot cutoffs.
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
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
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
Walnut tray with Maple slip feather.
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.
It’s my first attempt in making/weaving a stool with Danish cord seat. I researched, gave myself enough time to think about the process, and thought I prepared good, but just like everything else, I learned so much from letting my hands do the work. I still like to “prepare” things. … Continue reading
These Walnut cutting boards are available at my etsy shop.
I made this low-back sculptured chair designed by Sam Maloof. It received first place at San Diego County Fair’s Student Showcase. I lost track of hours spent, but probably 100 to 150 hours total. It was a lot of work. And above is my chair in our Living room … Continue reading
My cabinet work in the kitchen. The upper cabinets are for dishes and the lower cabinets are used as pantry only until kitchen renovation. Hopefully then, we have a bigger pantry. The pantry that used to be here when we first bought this house was disgusting. Looking at the photos … Continue reading
Arts and Crafts corner of my office… but the drawers on the left is for my sister.
Last year, my son asked me to make shelves to display his trophies, and I finally managed to make them for him. These are called “Blind Shelves” or “Floating Shelves”. I wanted simple shelves so the quality of wood stands out. My goal for his room is to include variety … Continue reading
