I recently started making Catchall trays. Each tray I handcraft from a solid piece of walnut. They have beautifully rounded corners, sanded perfectly smooth and then the bottom is engraved with various designs. My wife is using one to keep her watch and rings in everyday.
The catchall trays are great for holding small items such as glasses, watches, rings, earrings, thumb drives, car keys, coins, cell phone & charger, paperclips, thumbtacks, etc., the list is endless. It keeps all those everyday handy items within reach. They make great gifts!
The pineapple engraving takes a long time to do but this one is very popular along with the engraved honey bees!!
The trays are 8″ long and 4″ wide and I am currently making them using solid walnut. I can also engrave the bottom surface with a special message!

I wanted to share with you a little bit of the process of making an end grain cutting board. I am making two boards using a combination of Black Walnut and hard rock Maple. These two woods will give a nice contrast of color. The final size of each board will be 14″ x 20″ x 1-1/2″ thick.
One of my most popular items are the wine bottle stoppers I turn on my wood lathe. They are very unique because they are recessed, meaning that the cork is on the inside of the wine stopper and can not be seen when the stopper is on the bottle.
