Bloodwood

Bloodwood

Bloodwood is a Brazilian wood which is very hard and dense. It gets its common name from the freshly cut, almost bright red color. It ages to a deep brown. It works well and turns well, though it dulls tools quickly.

MANYWOOD BATONS AND BATON BOX

These batons and baton box were made for a music conductor friend of mine. The baton handles are turned on a lathe and the shafts are carbon fiber for strength and lightness. The box has a sliding top and holds several batons. The top and bottom of the box are built with many different woods and have several layers of "overlay."

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.
