Gallery

This gallery is a work-in-progress (and at the moment is still being built, so sorry about the mess!), and is by no means a complete record of things I have made (but I’m working towards that!) Many of the items seen here are also a feature of a blog entry or a video.

Toys

Making toys would probably be my favourite. There is something very traditional about wooden toys, and I always feel that is important to have some toys made of traditional materials in this day of brightly coloured (rarely durable) plastics.

Working front-end loader, rolling and articulating, with functional bucket. Made from Jarrah using a combination of tablesaw, lathe, bandsaw and scrollsaw.

Pen Turning

Although not very challenging compared to many turned items, never-the-less, pen turning is very rewarding, and a great way to display different timbers…..and it is much nicer using a pen you’ve made, rather than one you’ve bought!

A themed pen – the theme being a cross. This is my interpretation.

My first attempt at producing a captive ring. Given its size, and that it is on a pen, I was quite impressed with the result.

Assorted Items

A small goblet in Huon Pine as an experiment in turning.

Received a load of redgum firewood one day, and threw a bit on the lathe. Ended up with a mallet that I’ve been using for a few years now. Probably a lot more useful than burning it!

This is one of the first things I ever turned. Made from some redgum firewood (as was the mallet), I thought (stupidly) that I’d see if I could turn a ball. Somehow I got this piece out of it.

A bit strange, but not all woodwork needs to be artistic, or an object. The front of the property needed a fence, and this is what eventuated. One of the benefits of having a Triton workbench – I was able to take it to the job, and so each picket was angled at the base to match the slope of the path.
