Phone stands

wooden holders for smart phones,NEW

Although I have a computer and a large screen TV I often find myself propping my phone up against the salt and pepper shakers on the table to watch a quick YouTube video. If you know someone who does the same here's a quick gift for them. The phone stands will hold a thinner phone without a case and some of the beefier ones will also support an iPad. The ones above are examples. There are many more to choose from.

In the Kitchen

Are you looking for gifts for one of the cooks in your life? I have a number of spurtles. A spurtle was originally a stir stick for porridge. It's good for stirring sauces, tossing veggies while  a stir-frying or placing over top of a pot of pasta to prevent it from boiling over. Because spurtles are designed to scrape the sides of a pot I make them in right and left handed versions. Spurtles are available in Manitoba maple and walnut.

 

Maple Box

Although the body and the lid of this box are both hard maple, the figure and colour is quite different.  I have been looking at the piece that became the lid for quite some time, waiting for a project to properly show it off. The splines are walnut for contrast. Price $40.00

Hidden Curve Box

 

This box is walnut and I made a few for Christmas presents. From the outside it looks like a standard, square box. The inside is a freeform shape. surprise! (sold)

Three Grains Business Card Holder

The shapes on the front of this reminded me of grains of rice, or wheat. The top and bottom are maple and the sides are mahogany. Price $20.00

Heart and initials

This box is made from walnut and basswood.  The lid is chip carved. (sold)

The Cat Freeform Box

 

This box is made from cherry and walnut and I nicknames it 'the cat.' (sold)

Bean String Business Card Holder

I was playing with shapes on the front of this piece and when I was finished it reminded me of a string of beans.  The front and back are maple and the sides are walnut. Price $20.00

Cedar Freeform Box

I bought a cedar post to make puzzle boxes and had some left over.  This box is the result.  It features a walnut handle on the lid. Price $20.00

Cherry and Walnut Box

I'm pleased with this box.  It was one of the first that I made using the table saw. I cut the stock to size, created the mitered corners, cut the slots for the splines and  cut the rabbet on the lid all with the table saw. Before this project the only thing I would use the table saw for was cross-cutting with a sled. Price $50.00
