  1. sun ray floor

    Red oak floor stained Ebony with aluminum accent strips between each piece and wenge for the center. This is a floor that we installed and sanded over a year ago (before I was a member of lumberjocks) and its the only photo I can find at the time. If I find more pictures I'll be sure to add them...
  2. File handles

    I needed handles for a couple of my files I'm using on another project. Whipped up two from scraps around the shop. The smaller is red oak with a ¾" ID piece of aluminum tubing as a ferrule, and the larger is a bit of broom-handle, also with an aluminum ferrule. Both are shorter than normal...
  3. Ebony handle for "Light Sabre"

    I've carved an Ebony handled, 2 handed, Light Sabre prop for Halloween. I have machined an aluminum shaft to house an clear acrylic rod with a pocket milled in it to embed a LED flashlight 'Beam'. This can be seen in the Prototype photo. I then bored the Ebony to fit around the aluminum hilt...
  4. One Man's Junk - A recycled flag pole

    From my blog: In our front yard we have a wonderful 20-foot tall flag pole, the second one in the yard. The following is the replacement flag pole, installed last year - make a mental note of the golden ball at the very top of the pole: The old flag pole failed during a storm last year...
  5. iPad Pulpit

    Here's an interesting project. This is a pulpit (podium) for iPad. It's made of reclaimed American Chestnut barn wood, steel, aluminum, and calf skin leather. The chestnut came from a barn we call our "Chestnut Barn" that we tore down in Pennsylvania. The patina on the surface was so nice and...
  6. My Ring

    Here is my wedding ring. Its aluminum and mahogany and finished with General Finishes seal-a-cell, and arm-r-seal, with a few coats of wax. The original plan was to us Brazilian Rosewood, but I couldn't seem to get the aluminum to adhere to the wood. After many trials with several adhesives, and...
  7. Miter Gauge Upgrade, Now With 200% More Aluminum!

    I just finished making some improvements to my Unisaw's miter gauge. I added a 1"x2" aluminum extrusion to give me a longer reference surface and added a flip stop to ride in the top t-slot out of some aluminum plate and scraps of maple. I got the idea after watching on of Allan Little's (the...
  8. Small Dining Table

    This was one of my first funiture projects completed back in 2002. I went through a number of concept designs and had to make some design changes during the assembly process. I used Maple and Aluminum to get a industrial but soft look to the table. The legs are two pieces of maple planed to...
  9. Jewelry Box

    This jewelry box is made of Brazilian Cherry, Maple, Wenge and aluminum. It is approximately 11×7 x 4 and is finished with several coats of semi-gloss lacquer. Thanks for looking.
  10. Orchid Tables

    This is one of a run of 12 tables I did of the same design after prototyping six or seven with different table top and skirt attachment methods. The "final prototype" was commissioned for a gentleman to hold a single orchid, thus the name of the tables. The skirt is made of hard maple wrapped in...
  11. Router Guide for the Wood lathe

    This is a router guide box for use in the wood lathe to slot/flute wood projects in the chuck or between centers. It is to be used in conjunction with a plunge router with a 5/8" bushing on the bottom. It is adjustable up and down to accommodate a 10" max diameter piece. The top plate is also...
  12. Another kerfmaker

    And now, a kerfmaker! The "themed" pics should give a hint about who I got the inspiration from… give up? mafe of course, and his kerfmaker I really like the look of it (and all of mafe's tools) so I felt I had to try to build one, went with whatever parts I had available so no money was...
  13. Modern Butcher Block

    One of my buddies has been looking for a butcher block for a long time and has been unable to find something that really fit his eye. We grew up together and he said he wanted something that looked like the one in my mom's house and luckily, I had made something similar a couple months ago for...
  14. DIY Camera Rig

    As Filmaker and part time youtuber I needed some sort of camera hold/rig to carry around my DSLR and I needed something that could improve my image quality. A stabilizer was the way to go but they are so expensive and even those entry level camera cages were around 100Euros.. So as always it...
  15. Segmented Maple and Ebony Cigar Pens

    So I went down somewhat of a pen "rabbit hole" and delayed finishing my workbench after watching Gabe Castro make several amazing pens on YouTube. These are my first attempts at segmented blanks, but I am happy with the results even if they are cut freehand. The first is Ebony with "blue steel"...
  16. Some segmented turinings

    I decided to get a little creative with materials in some recent turnings. I had some scraps of acrylic that really weren't large enough for anything. I cut everything on my table saw using a small parts sled. I also used a 7 1/4" blade to conserve material since the acrylic pieces were really...
  17. Aluminum I beam and Walnut bench

    I made this a while ago from material left over from some older projects. I often incorperate I-beams in my work and love these aluminum ones. The top is walnut and the truss rod in the legs is a left over piece of curly walnut from another table I made a while back. Thanks for looking.
  18. Cardigan Handle Cane

    Cardigan style handle on this cane. Walnut handle with Maple end cap, Maple shaft, Aluminum and Ebony spacer and ferrule. 34 1/2 inches long. All my canes and walking sticks are made by hand, with draw knife, spokeshave and rasp and therefore will contain some unique irregularities. Critiques...
  19. Scandinavian Minimalist Bathroom Sink Cabinet

    Not much to see but I post it anyway since maybe the choice of materials could interest someone. I live in Colombia and there is not much quality to find when it comes to furniture, not even bespoken ones, so I decided a couple of years ago that I rather buy some tools and ******************** up myself than...
  20. Plywood scrap wood end table with aluminum

    Plywood and cherry end table with hints of green epoxy in the top and in 2 of the legs. Cherry tapered legs, and the top is sandwiched in between pieces of aluminum.
