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.

Ponds and Rivers Kaleidoscopes

These Maple and Purpleheart Kaleidoscopes are two of a series of three titled the "Elana" series. Both are built using the overlay technique from solid wood. The object cells are interchangeable. The object cell and the mirror system are designed and built by Jonathan Eaton of Cincinnati.

Wine Racks

The wine rack is a very simple and very functional design. Due to the balance of the design, one to three bottles can be displayed, individually or together, for a unique wine loving experience. Made from reclaimed, recycled woods, usually walnut, maple and purpleheart.
