Williamsburg garden bench
. Finished the second Williamsburg garden bench, this time using wet deodar cedar. In the attached photos, youíll see the contrast of the deodar to the earlier bench I made about a year ago using western red cedar. The new bench is for my Father in-law. August 2020

Butterfly Cutting Board
- My mother-in-law loves butterflies so I used both surface and through-inlay to add the suggestion to her cutting board. The board is maple and inlay uses ebony, padauk, heat wood and granadillo. June 2020

A cabinet that sits in front of the mail box chute in his front hall.
The mail falls in to a compartment behind the door on the left hand side. The slots on the top right are for sorting mail. This is principally a veneered project. The wood is ebony with both sap and heart wood. Morgan started this project in the early spring in Brian Condranís Master Series class. May 2020
More:The frame (legs and stretchers) are of cherry, but the figured wood on the faces is ebony, and not just any ebony. This wood came from a 300LB railroad tie. This tie had been laying on the jungle floor in Nigeria for over 100 years. When the trees were originally cut (native trees conveniently nearby the railroad line), they were 500 years old, so this wood is over 600 years old. Ebony can be pitch black throughout or a mix of sapwood and heartwood (dark) and this piece was a beautiful mix of both and each time Iíd slice off a piece the pattern would change. Iíve never worked with wood so surprising and inspiring. It also happens to be one of the hardest woods on the planet, so very unforgiving as well.
