American Woodworker magazine was acquired by F+W Media (parent company of Popular Woodworking) in 2014.
Conway New Hampshire artisan Fred Jones crafts with wood in many forms but his latest wood art comes from the lathe.
Working with maple, cherry, walnut and many exotic hardwoods, woodworker Fred Jones turns solid wood blocks and gnarly burls into beautiful, functional woodcraft.
As you can see from this photo and the one below that significant amounts of wood needed to be removed to true up the base allow the face plate to sit flat on it. Here I am using a wood carving gouge to remove the button of wood so that the face plate will sit flat on the base.
In this picture I am removing some waste wood about the base and getting ready to use a parting tool. Here I am using a thin parting tool to remove the bowl from some of the waste wood into which the face plate screws are lodged.
Wethersfield Woodcraft specializes in wood turned bowls, plates, cheese platters, cutting boards, and many miscellaneous decorative items. Fred embraces the imperfections in the wood that lend to the charm and character of each finished piece.
From his Center Conway NH woodworking shop Fred also is known for his Adirondack chairs and benches, rustic bird houses and refinished furniture treasures.
Many of his pieces are completed with natural, food safe finishes for wonderful functional bowls and platters that will bring you much pleasure with each use.
