13″ CHERRY, MAPLE,WALNUT PLATTER – 04/24 – My second platter. It consists of 51 segments. The rings from outside to inside are cherry, walnut, maple, cherry, maple and bullitt.

9″ CHERRY AND WALNUT PLATTER– 03/24 – My first attempt at a platter. Outer ring is cherry, middle ring is some of the darkest walnut i have ever seen, inner ring is alder. I love the color combination. Finished with hand rubbed teak oil. I’m working on a method to get tighter joints on the concentric rings.

ROUND FRAMED DRIED FLOWERS – 03/24 – I had a few walnut rings left over from the Walnut Spiral Table. So I decided to make them into picture frames. I took some old flowers and embedded them in a disc of epoxy resin to fit the frame.

WALNUT SPIRAL TABLE

WALNUT SPIRAL TABLE – 02-24 – This was a completely new experience. I had to acquire a “steam engine” and make a form around which to bend the 20 walnut slats . I then had to design and make an assembly fixture. The walnut slats turn about 180 degrees from top to bottom. They are fastened at the top and at the bottom to an “inner ring” and surrounded by an “outer ring.” All the rings have 10 segments that are joined with splines. The legs and table supports are also steam bent. It is finished with polyurethane satin varnish. The shape of the bent slats is not perfectly consistent so they are not spaced evenly. I am working on the second table and hoping to figure out how to get a more consistent bend. I am happy with the design; it is very light and airy.
