@Little Fang

for giving me permission to post here. Those members who belonged to Aeclectic Tarot may remember me.
All items I create are made from domestic species of hard and softwood. I don't do painted finishes as I think this obscures the beauty of the grain - so I use an oil finish on hardwoods and water based urethane on softwoods often stained. Most decoration is done with molding, this will change as I learn to carve.
All bowls are hand turned finished with a beeswax based polish. All other turned items are finished with a friction polish.
On pricing - please PM me about the item using the code shown, I will get back asap. I take custom orders as well for item types shown and much more.
On to the goods . . .

Curio boxes . . .
These boxes have been sized to store tarot decks, but can be used for so much more. The following is a reference picture comparing the 3 sizes of deck I used in the pictures.

CB003 is stained pine

CB006 is quartersawn oak with an oil finish

CB007 is also stained pine

Deck storage . . .
Curio boxes aren't the only option.

I show one of my pieces that wasn't originally sized for decks. Small hanging oak cabinet with kumiko work door.

As shown decks could be stored on the outer shelves of this small hanging cabinet (several shelves are adjustable). The inner cabinet is too shallow - unless you have some decks less than 2" wide.
Just to show you don't have to limit yourself to curio boxes.

Mortar & pestles . . .

Recently I have begun hand turning hardwood mortar & pestles.

Here are 2 hardwood mortar & pestles best used for herbs - though its limits could be tested. Like my bowls these have a beeswax based finish in them. WMP002 in birch with oak pestle WMP004 is beech with an ash pestle
Past customers have liked them as they are better sized for their hands and not as heavy as the stone and metal alternatives.

Hand turned bowls . . .
I turn bowls from either a solid piece of wood or a blank built up from pieces of domestic hard-wood (poly-chrome turning)..
I am sharing a few examples - as I have many in stock - the balance can be found at https://yourdreamsinwood.ca/apps/webstore
Some solid bowls - OB001, OB002 are oak & WD003 is walnut
A large poly-chrome bowl (mixed hardwood)
A couple medium poly-chrome bowls (mixed hardwood)

I also turn small "salt" bowls - approximately 3" in diameter.


Poly-chrome oak and walnut (I will update with a numbered picture.)

Hand turned candlesticks / hurricane lamps . . .
The candlestick shown are turned from oak with a brass candle ferrule. (they are singles, but a close match to each othe)

 

I also turn hurricane candle lamps - using vintage / thrift store found globes. These are more often poly-chrome with a fiction polish. HL002 is mixed domestic hard-wood with a vintage frosted chimney.

Other items . . .
I have many framed mirrors in stock (did not know if appropriate). These and other items are available through

Your Dreams in Wood Webstore
I will be turning pendulums from the smaller more ornate / distinctive pieces that can't be incorporated in larger projects.


I will also be turning some small wooden boxes. When done I will post.


Please, share any other suggestions, and remember I do custom pieces of all size and type.

 

Thank you,
Jim Lukow aka nord_drache

Greetings everyone . . .

As promised I present a selection of pendulums. I was inspired by the divination thread here and online articles. Online it was said that wooden pendulums are more "neutral" -  I can't speak from experience.

 

These pendulums are hand-turned from domestic wood species, with a friction polish. Please message me if interested.

Here is a piece I created, inspired by a past piece.

This is a wooden book shaped curio box, or my curio book.

The covers are oil finished cherry, the "pages" are white ash, and has a latch and brass embellishments.

As always, please message me if interested or need more information.
