  1. Stage 3 Cancer Box

    I made this shadow box for a friend who unfortunately just got diagnosed with stage 3 testicular cancer. Unfortunately the tumors spread to his lungs, stomach and brain. I made this and presented it to him in the hospital when he was initially diagnosed and enrolled. He was several weeks away...
  2. Picture Frame

    Another picture frame of African Mahogany and curly maple, made to hold a family photo given to my mother. It holds a 5×7. It was supposed to hold an 8×10, but like a moron I cut a couple miters in the wrong direction, and short on wood, I had to go with a much smaller frame.
  3. A Quick Secret Box

    Just a simple little box that was fun to make. A few pieces of African Mahogany and a slice of Walnut. I thought about making a sliding dovetail box like the WoodWhisperer demonstrated before Christmas, but I need more practice. So, I thought I would make the top rotate a bit. And, rather...
  4. Inlaid Keepsake Box

    This is a keepsake box I made as a gift about a year ago. Made of all solid African mahogany, even the top and the bottom. The inlay is of canarywood and walnut. Splines are maple. I took the Woodwhisperer's design for the inlay. Used some nice Brusso hardware and a lock from Rockler, which...
  5. The Strempel table (Out of the wood1)

    A hall table/occasional writing desk in African mahogany and spalted Cape Holly. 1420L x 560D x 835H I promised to post some photos of my accepted entries for the "Out of the wood" exhibition here in the Southern Cape, South Africa. This table is the most conservative in design of all my...
  6. Cleo's memorial box

    This box started out as a project for a class I was taking. The box is made out of African Mahogany. There are maple splines in the joints, but I forgot to take pictures of them. My wife's aunt's dog had just passed away, so I decided to make it for her. Cleo was the best dog she ever had...
  7. My Step Stool

    I made this stool in my Woods class. It is made of African Mahogany, with a half circle leg design, a rounded router bit. It doesn't have any stain on it because I didn't have time time to add it. The type of finish i used is Gloss Tung Oil.
  8. Bubinga, African Mahogany, and Wenge box with wooden hinges

    Here is a box with wooden hinges made from three African woods (Bubinga, African Mahogany shelf, and Wenge mitered "outlay" on the top). Great fun figuring these out! I started by making the wooden hinges and then decided to make a box on which I could use them. The box became a special gift to...
  9. Yet Another Pekovich Tool Cabinet

    This is the tool cabinet, built kinda/sorta from the Fine Woodworking article/plan, by Mike Pekovich. I bought the plan because a.) it was on sale, and b.) I didn't want to think, and just follow directions. But that turned out not to be the case. So to speak. Anything with this kind of...
  10. Church Doors

    Built some new doors for a church. Made from African mahogany with a cabernet stain and spar urethane on top. Had to replace the trim around the outside of the door too. Used the same hardware just cleaned it up with a wire wheel. Damage was done by a drunk driver. It was a bit of a challenge...
  11. QSAM, walnut, and curly maple box

    This is my first project I've posted b/c I'm either taking pictures of all my projects on my blackberry or the files are too big to post on here and im computer illiterate…ha So this box is made from some quarter sawn African Mahogany, walnut, curly maple. All of the corners are mitred and the...
  12. KclocK

    A co-worker asked me if I could make him a clock with a few wood combos as a gift for someone. He really couldn't decide if he wanted a clock or a box so we decided a clock with a semi hidden drawer in the base. He wanted to keep it simple and not too fussy. The face is bookmatched figured black...
  13. Balance Wine Holders

    Maple, Walnut, Pine, African Mahogany, Beech. I am making dozens of these to sell at a craft sale in a couple of weeks. Approximately 45% angle at the bottom and a hole for a wine bottle neck to fit in. Once balanced they are remarkably stable. I use wood that is being tossed out by a stair and...
  14. Snowflakes

    Snowflakes to hang from a Christmas tree. These are made on the tablesaw mostly. Each of 6 pieces have identical notches cut in them to be symmetrical, then the 6 pieces are glued together, first in pairs to make a V shape and then 3 of those V shapes put together to form the shape in a long...
  15. Mantel clock w/angel cnc pattern carving

    Finally put many of my lessons learned to practice. This is my latest clock. Gift for my mom. It has an angel carved pattern with an ornamental rosette embellishments on the top plate. The sides have a carved rose vine pattern. Installed an electronic clock mechanism with Westminster chimes...
  16. Custom made digital frame system based on Apple TV

    As do many people, we have a ton of old digital photos that we never look at. I had the idea to design a system so that when the family is eating dinner we can look at all these old photos from time to time. After looking at the commercially available digital frames, I was unimpressed. I...
  17. Segmented Pen Turning - 5 woods represented

    My first attempt at a segmented pen turning… not too shabby. I figure that since I have moved on to higher quality pen kits I would try to make blanks a bit fancier too. Woods used to make the pen blank: Maple, Black Walnut, Mahogany, Yellowheart and African Mahogany. After turning I encased...
  18. Thr33 + 2

    My wife received a message from the lady who ordered the Thr33 boxes and said she needed two more boxes quickly, if possible, before the wedding. I checked my wood stash and had just enough African Mahogany left over from the last batch to make two more, but had to dive into my cutoff bin for...
  19. It's nice but its wrong!

    This end grain cutting board was built using maple and African mahogany for my son who is into math and numbers. What is interesting about binary code on cutting boards is there are four ways to view the code. The pattern is binary code for his first name. Proudly, I showed it to my wife who's...
  20. Quilt Rack - African Mahogany

    Quilt rack-made for my office admin. as a retirement present. She's a quilter, and this rack is sized (32"x 34" tall) to store two throw-size quilts. It's not big enough for a full bed quilt display. I made it out of what I call 'dead man's mahogany'-wood I purchased from someone's estate. I...
