Summer Woodworking Projects

Here is a quick update of a few of my recent woodworking projects from this spring and summer. The coffee table, sofa table, jewelry box, and magnetic knife block are made from black walnut wood which my great-grandfather cut and milled decades ago from our family farm in southern Minnesota. The oak desk/breakfast table is made from live edge wood that we milled with a chainsaw from an old dead oak tree on the same farm/woodlands of our family. The interesting character to the wood is from partial rot, weather damage, and insects and makes for a very unique piece.

 

Black Walnut, Agate, and Plum Wood Business Card Holders

I made these simple business card holders out of scrap black walnut and plum wood. The agates are from the North Shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota.
