    Gnome Forest

    My grandson, Dexter, and the new Gnome Forest. 4 total pieces, all dogwood. The base is 1/2 of a Dogwood root ball. The forest is 7 inches wide and 6 inches tall. My Son and Daughter-in-law think Dexter looks like a gnome. I have to agree, but he is the cutest gnome i have ever seen!

    Best reward for my work (better than money!)

    Last June, I made a baby rattle. My daughter-in-law was pregnant and Dexter was born Nov. 7. He is just old enough now to grasp and focus, and I got this photo from my son this past week. The baby rattle is made from Dogwood, sanded to 2000 grit. IF I put any finish on it, it was just walnut...

    my first big segmented piece!

    I guess you would call this a vertical segmented piece. It is about 7" tall. The inner core is walnut, then dogwood (with a little heartwood showing), then another walnut, followed by figured maple on the outer layer. My goal was to see if it would hold together, not how thin I could get...

    Dogwood box

    I just joined yesterday, so I am showing projects I have made over the past year right now. I made this Dogwood box for my wife. While the construction is not complex with box corners, I did take my time with the construction. The box is 7 X 9 X 4 1/2". The lid and base are two pieces...

    Walnut & Dogwood butcher block board

    My son (32 yr. old) wanted a cutting board, so I took my time and made something that will last him a lifetime! The squares are just under 1" square, and are about 2 inches high. I started with 1 x 1 x 4", and made the basic pattern of the X, by gluing up individual (short) rows, then after...

    Dogwood for carving?

    This is just a shot in the dark. This weekend I took down a dogwood tree in my front yard, mostly because it was not thriving (probably some blight) and had only one halfway decent branch on it. The main trunk is probably about 6 or 8 inches in diameter near the ground. After I got done...

    Turning dogwood?

    After driving all over town in "the land of pine", with my eyes peeled for the last month or so, I finally saw someone cutting down a tree with gray bark the other day. :eek: So I pulled over and grabbed about a 2' section of trunk with about an 8" diameter. It is dogwood and I was wondering if...
