A domestic wood, Ash is plentiful and very useful. It is commonly used for baseball bats, tool handles and furniture.

Musician's Bench

The Musician's Bench is deceptively simple, as it is designed out of three pieces of wood, but it is quirky in its shape and dimensions. The top is 5/4 Walnut and the legs are 7/4 Ash. The dovetails are hand cut. The Musician's Bench was featured in the "Woodworker's Showcase" section of "American Woodworker Magazine," June/July 2008.

Mahler Kaleidoscope

The title of this piece was inspired by Mahler's Fourth Symphony. This is one of the three largest Kaleidoscopes I have built. It features a three mirrored interior which provides a seemingly three-dimensional view, and what I call the "spiky orb." It is built from a mosaic of many different woods, and the base is mainly Black Walnut. The mirrors and optics were made by Jonathan Eaton.

Boxes

Joy's box features a sliding drawer and a sliding top. Its dimensions are about 12x6x3 1/2 inches. The sides are Walnut, and the Padauk ends are pinned with brass as an accent. The top is made from many woods and many layers of overlay.

Steve's Box (the lower right) is a drum stick box with a sliding top. It, as well as Joy's box, is built with solid wood using overlay techniques, and is not veneered. It was built for a drummer friend of mine, Steve (for his fancy German drumsticks).
