Rocky Mountain Barkback Spider


Just another crazy spider. Spiders seem to be perfect for woodturning with their round bodies and spindly legs. This one is turned entirely from Gambel Oak with the exception of its 6 eyes and its fangs which are cocobolo.

15″ tall, about 12″ across the legs.

Osage Orange Spider

This was my first attempt as an entry to the Hogle Zoo’s annual (2008)  “World of the Wild” art show. This was awarded the “Employees Choice” award. The spider is made from Osage Orange with small Rosewood points at the elbows and Rosewood claws. She’s also wearing bracelets (captive rings) on her front legs. The beady eyes and tongue are Redheart. She’s about 10″ tall.
