Phil Duncan - Egyptian stool.
Dale Chorney - A beautiful knife. The blade was donated by Phil Duncan and the wood was donated by on old juniper tree.
Ivan Lee - A knife using a Condor Bushlore Blade.
Ivan Lee - A Condor Kepthart blade with a hand made sheath.
Tea Caddy, wood is similar to maple (not sure since I got it at a garage sale) and the inside dividers are teak.
Brian Condran - Chest-on-chest Jewelry Cabinet. See detail description on Brian's page.
Bob Bean - I completed my Morris Chair during this Stay at Home 2 months. The chair was adapted from the design of a Morris Chair in the April, 2011 Popular woodworking magazine.I had a Danish Modern armchair which I had recovered with arts & crafts upholstery about 5 years ago and wanted to match the rest of my arts and crafts furniture.So I replaced the legs with Morris Chair legs, and added the front & back supports.The project is white oak which I stained with Jell Stain and finished with Verathane.
I used Mortise and Tenon joints on the sides of the chair while the front and back stretchers were screwed and glued to the legs.What I learned when I attached the legs was that the front stretched was 26 inches and the back stretcher was 24 inches, so the seat tapers slightly to the back.I feel this taped seat improved the appearance and comfort of the chair.
Duke Herrero - Low-boy chest of drawers. I was able to find ash with color and grain to match the redwood sapwood.
Pat Dimaggio - Greene & Greene style hall table that I began in Brian?s class.
Morgan Strickland - a cabinet that sits in front of the mail box chute in his front hall. The mail falls in to a compartment behind the door on the left hand side. The slots on the top right are for sorting mail. This is principally a veneered project. The wood is ebony with both sap and heart wood.Morgan started this project in the early spring in Brian Condran?s Master Series class.
More:The frame (legs and stretchers) are of cherry, but the figured wood on the faces is ebony, and not just any ebony. This wood came from a 300LB railroad tie. This tie had been laying on the jungle floor in Nigeria for over 100 years. When the trees were originally cut (native trees conveniently nearby the railroad line), they were 500 years old, so this wood is over 600 years old. Ebony can be pitch black throughout or a mix of sapwood and heartwood (dark) and this piece was a beautiful mix of both and each time I?d slice off a piece the pattern would change. I?ve never worked with wood so surprising and inspiring. It also happens to be one of the hardest woods on the planet, so very unforgiving as well.

Bob Barnett - Walnut with Sam Maloof Poly/Oil finish and Clapham?s Bees Wax. See his page for more detail.
Craig Bender - Bandsaw Boxes - Ash, birch, cherry, and a bit of walnut.
Pete Nakatani - Japanese VG-10 Damascus, China forged, E Indian rosewood, 8" Chef, 5" santoku.
Bob Hoellwarth - I just finished a video about Sharpening a Brand New Chisel. I bought a new 1-1/4 inch Marples chisel, so I filmed the process of sharpening it to usable standards. - https://youtu.be/jPWRyXW9zjs
Harold Mantle -home build, I assume, pizza oven in his back yard.
Andy Ferguson - a quilted maple, natural edge, small hanging cabinet for holdingkeys and such. The drawers are side hung, so note the slots in the sides of the drawers falling between the hand cut dovetails. Andy says that this is the first time doing this type of drawer and is happy with the outcome.
Pete Nakatani - Fibonacci Dividers. For those of us that need a little help figuring out proportions, Fibonacci Dividers. Gaboon Ebony, Recycled piano key inlays, Brass. The only things I did not make were the stainless screws. May still polish out the brass.

Dale Chorney - As he say ?From Firewood, Things emerge to hold your keys or garlic?.
George Lucido - Another Windsor chair.
