Here's My Woodworking!
By Kevin Loewe


I started woodworking at a young age using my father's tools. He would have me help him do small home repair jobs on weekends, like rebuilding porch stairs and railings. I began purchasing my own tools when I got married.

I retired from a mechanical engineering job and now spend my downtime making many different items. I have a ShopBot CNC machine that allows me to continue using my engineering background. I recently restored an old cast-iron Craftsman wood lathe and added a DC variable speed controller and motor to it.

Below are several of my projects.

Bed frame headboard and footboard made out of African black limba


Side table made out of African black limba.

Lamp is turned African black limba with a base of pressure cast
tinted epoxy over a fir burl.

Conifer burl cast bowl.

Twisted design plant stand that I made out of Cherry finished with
poly resin using the CNC machine.


Wine and food serving set I made using my CNC machine.
It is made from Maple and Walnut vacuum bonded together
before machining.


Catalpa serving set
