Dave's Wood Art

Yep!  Everything you see here on this website is work done from local woods only.  I do not buy wood from other parts of the state or other parts of the country.  I think America has some beautiful wood and I see no reason to use anything else.  You will find all kinds of things here varying from bowls of all sizes and woods, to platters, salt/spice boxes, even mortar and pestle sets.  You will find my turnings are thought out to be useful as well as good looking.  My turnings also tend to be more rustic in style, which is not to be confused with vintage.   Now I will stop all of this rambling and I invite you to explore the site and I hope you enjoy what you see.  For purchasing purposes there is a link with each piece taking you to my store front on Etsy.  I even have some critter photos on a page showing off some of the wildlife that I feed regularly because I feel I need to help them out with food and water.

Thanks, Dave

Unusual Duck

As many folks know, I feed a fair amount of wild critters.  Deer, squirrels, rabbits, turkeys, and as of the past couple of years black bellied whistling ducks.  Cute ducks they are.  I have never seen a duck sit on a power line before but lo and behold, I had one doing it on April 18, 2017.  Just so you will believe me instead of accusing me of spinning a Texas yarn, here is a photo just for you!

What's Going on in the Shop

Several new things are going to be showing up in the shop very soon.  Not just some new tools but also some new designs.  One of the nice things about the time right after Christmas I get to actually experiment at bit with new stuff and see what happens.  So keep an eye out for new designs and maybe even some old stuff brought back.  Going to be playing with the idea of dough bowls as well.  The new hollowing equipment is not in yet, but on the way!  Stay tuned!  Also, as soon as I figger it all out there will be a blog on here that I think you will be able to reply to.  Again, stay tuned.

My Log Yard

As a lot of folks know, I harvest pretty much all of my own wood.  A little while back I was in what I call my "wood acquisition mode", which means I am out logging.  Yes, literally cutting trees down, limbing them, and then bucking them to manageable lengths for hauling purposes.  Below is a series of photos taken of my log yard right after one of my little logging operations.  The wood in the first two photos is American Elm and the next two photos show both the elm and pecan wood that I brought in.  Some of the elm is about 3' in diameter.  What you see was done in two days time.  I get some good help from a friend, and together we get the job done.  And, I thank that feller for his help.  He is one of the reasons that Dave's Wood Art can function.
