Live Edge Table
This is a live edge table built for Gary McInturf of McInturf Sawmill & Kiln in Kentucky. The live edge pieces are walnut, and the center is striped maple. The legs and frame are a combination of the two woods.
Butternut Gift Box
A gift box for a custom hunting knife commissioned by a local hunter. He chose butternut because he wanted the box made from an unusual species for this special knife. I was fortunate to have gotten some butternut from McInturf’s sawmill the week before.
Big Green Egg Cart
A local college professor needed a mobile cart for his Big Green Egg® grill. The top was provided by the owner, and made from Corian. We used eastern red cedar for the frame for its ability to withstand the elements, and also for its beautiful color. We also added a cubby hole to store grilling utensils and accessories.
This quilt stand was crafted from Kentucky Coffee Tree. My client wanted a quilt stand for his wife, and he wanted it to be as Kentucky as possible. He did not want the typical oak, cherry, walnut. He suggested purpleheart, but we decided it would not fit the requirements, since purpleheart is not native to the US, let alone Kentucky.
All of the wood for this project was reclaimed from the owner’s 150 year old log cabin. His great-grandfather built the cabin when they purchased the property a century and a half ago. The owner moved the cabin and had lumber left over. The leftover beams were sawn at McInturf Saw Mill in Kentucky, and were used to build the rustic table.
Live Edge Dining Table
This is a live edge cherry dining room table built for Gary McInturf of McInturf Sawmill & Kiln in Kentucky. The table was built in our shop in Azle, TX, and delivered to McInturf’s home in Kentucky.
Wood Ouija Planchettes
A local merchant had 3 vintage Ouija boards but had lost or broken the planchettes over the years. So she asked Full Circle to make 3 wood planchettes for her. We cut a template and verified with her that the size and thickness was correct. For the wood species, we chose cherry for its lightness, bold colors, and attractive grain. Three pegs were added to the underside, holes were cut for viewing, and they were finished with Tung oil. The felt pad addition was left for the merchant.
These benches were stored in the basement of a Sand Springs parishioner for 50 years. They came from the original church, and were the only items that survived a fire that destroyed the church. When the parishioner passed away, the benches were discovered and Full Circle Woodworking was asked to restore them. We completely disassembled each bench, stripped and repaired each board, reassembled each bench, and painted them flat black. The church added plaques to the benches, and they now reside in the hallway of the current church (Sand Springs, in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky).
A local doctor came to us with a decorative bell made from an old oxygen tank, and needed a frame to hold it. Full Circle built the wood frame, and Maynard Studios did a great job fabricating a metal hook for the mallet, and the metal arch at the top.
Cherry Dictionary Stand
The second dictionary stand built for a local doctor. The lighter colored cherry called for finer dimensions in the design. This warranted the elimination of the lower shelf, as the shelf only seemed to diminish the finished look.
Walnut Shadow Box
A pair of these shadow boxes were commissioned for two antique dresses. The dresses were hand-sewn by the great grandmother of my client. His wife wanted to get them out of the closet and on display.
We chose walnut for its beauty and to accent the colorful dresses.
