Here are a few small projects I completed a while ago. I couldn’t see posting these individually so I just through them all in the same gallery.

First is a simple pencil holder from, you guessed it, the Wood Whisperer site. Tiger maple with a padauk base. For the second pic I’m sorry, but you’re just going to have to turn your monitor on it’s side ; ).

Second is the little picture frame box from the Mere Mortals site. I’ve made several of these as gifts, but only took pictures of the first one. Jatoba and walnut. This one came out just so so I think. The subsequent ones came out MUCH better.

Finally on here a dresser tray for my brother. Design came from WWGOA. It’s made from cherry I got from a friend and lined the bottom with leather. This also could have turned out a little better. But am happy with it for now. If I make more of these a little more attention to tool set up and the fit and finish will improve. Thanks for looking!

New to Lumberjocks, ...... Welcome.
You do nice work, especially the dresser caddy with the odd angles. You seemed to catch on quick.
Happy woodworking.

Appreciate your kind words Oldtool. The caddy was actually alot easier than it looks. The tough part I had was cutting the bevels along the length of the 40inch board or so. It wasn’t until after that hairy cut that I realized my table saw was a little out of alignment. I’ve got some experience with crown molding and other trim work so luckily those angles weren’t too bad.

I like your half blind dovetails on your cherry game table by the way!
