  1. Very Basic Construction Lumber TV Stand From Douglas Fir 2X

    This was my first attempt at getting commissioned. I don't think I will do it again because I don't think the appreciation is out there for the amount of work it takes to build something like this. I know this for sure based on the low ball request that I must have been out of my mind to agree...
  2. Pine is fine!

    The 3 year old needed a step stool to be able to reach and turn the water on in our bathroom. Up until now the adventurous little rascal had been stacking his plastic step stools from other rooms, one on top of the other to reach…. inventive little creature :O The overall design was taken from...
  3. A Little Tear

    This is a hexagonal Tabouret that I designed to sit next to my arm chair. It's made of Beech, an under appreciated and under utilized, domestic species. The marquetry is a 1,2,4 basket weave pattern with a tear in it and bees coming through onto the surface. I'm extremely pleased with...
  4. Twin Chess Boards Recycled

    I pulled some doors out of a salvage bin from Hurricane Sandy. These were doors for very large pantries. I cut out the chess board squares with the depth guage on the table saw. So it is all one piece of wood. The boarder on the one board is the remaining pieces of the door. But the boarder of...
  5. Bedrooom set

    my wife and I shopped around for furniture and couldn't find what we wanted so I decided to try and build a bedroom set…these are the 2 dressers I have made and the bed is coming
  6. Brazillian Cherry Bowl with Blue and White Sand Inlay

    I used three pieces of old cherry scrap flooring glued with original gorilla glue. I used coarse white sand and fine blue sand with CA glue for the inlay. The fine sand seemed to be a LOT harder on my tools than the last project with only coarse sand. I have to reshape my chisels now. I...

    Here are more pictures of the desk.
  8. Butterfly Jewelry Box

    This was a scroll saw project made for my Grand Daughter. The top is made of Cherry, Purpleheart, Yellowheart, Zebrawood, Cedar and Walnut. The bottom part of the box is red oak. The box was finished with Shellac.
  9. Lord's Prayer in Spanish Cedar

    Just finished a small Christmas gift for my in-laws. I made good use of James Booth model (Vector Art 3D) of Jesus and Tim Merrill's (see Vectric forum article) glazing technique. Thanks guys for assisting with this gift-the end result, which the photos do not due justice, is much better than I...
  10. Sofa table

    My wife wanted one ,so i put together some ideas ,and this is what i came up with. Made from some cherry wood my uncle gave me.
  11. Desk Clock

    I've had a design in mind for a desk clock for awhile now and finally made it. It's inspired by 1930's Art Deco. It's made out of Santa Maria and Maple. I drilled a through hole in order to push the clock movement out when it's time to change the battery or set the time. No need to pry it from...
  12. A Tribute to one of my best clients

    I'm sure if we all look back, there is someone you can name that made a difference in your life. For me, that would have to be Mike and Suzy Hoch. I was maybe 24 yrs. old when I first met them. I had just moved to Lake Forest Illinois and was trying to promote my first short lived business...
  13. 50 Freedom Pens

    A batch of 50 Freedom Pens headed to our troops. These pens are walnut, cedar, and maple. Since I started turning pens, I have done 845+ pens for uniformed service personnel and veterans. Anyone interested in volunteering to support the project can get more info at http://freedompens.org/
  14. Glassy

    This hollow form vase was turned from end grain maple. It measures 8" tall by 4" wide. It is finished with multiple layers of aniline dye and topped with several coats of spray satin lacquer. I was experimenting with the dyes in an attempt of giving it an iridescent glass like appearance. All...
  15. 2" cube

    I posted this in the woodcarving forum and was told to post it here in the projects also. Most of my woodcarving is what is called chip carving and can be very detailed. This past year at a woodcarving show there is a very good miniature caricature carver, Don Mertz, who made a miniature chip...
  16. Walnut Jewelry Box - Basic

    Hi I am still very new to woodworking and this piece is my first small project that sort of turned out as intended but very far removed from perfect. My 3rd year wedding anniversary was coming up and according to some such nonsense the material for 3rd year wedding anniversary is leather… not...
  17. CNC Woodworking
    If I run a small dust collector (portable unit, 1hp) and step it down to a 2" hose into a cyclone, then onto the CNC, am I really going to lose a lot of suction? I have a large 2HP dust collector I could use, but I don't have a cyclone with a 4" port, so my only option is to step down to a 2"...
  18. Hand Tools
    Well, I finally came across a Type 2 Sargent #407 so I snatched it up. This was rare enough that, yes, I had to pay a pretty penny for it. It looked a bit beat up on fleaBay but had all the parts, so I dug out my electrolysis bath and went to work. . . It originally looked like this: ...
