  1. Andy-Style Box #3

    I made this Andy-style box for my boss' retirement next month. It's made of figured ash from the local saw mill, recycled padauk (from an old table off craigslist) for the medallion/handle, and bloodwood for the splines (not sure why I used both padauk and bloodwood here, as they look nearly...
  2. Cat Box

    This is actually a pet urn for a couple of cats, one already deceased and one about to cash in. A friend of mine liked the boxes I did in December and asked if I would make him one for the critters. This is hickory and walnut with a natural oil finish with a lacquer top coat to give it a wet...
  3. My Test Urn

    This was a test box that I thought would be fun to try, since making 4 flawless miter joints on a square box to fit to perfection I decided to try 8 miter joints to make an octagon. These joints turned out OK but I learned what I needed to. I also decided to try out making an inlay in the...
  4. Andy-Style Box Attempt #1

    Here is my first try at making an Andy-style art box, following his great set of tutorials (available here). Since I don't own a router table, I made the top into a square piece that sets into the regular box opening (someday I'll have to try the nice rounded-rabbet recessed style). I think...
  5. Andy Art Box #2

    My second attempt at an Andy Art Box. Body is walnut, lid is maple, and the "medallion" is cherry. Handle is purpleheart, and the splines are maple & purpleheart. Hinges are 1/8"brass pins. Finish is semi-gloss lacquer. Things went a little smoother on this one. Still a ton of sanding...
  6. Andy's Jewelry Box for my Wife

    Well, first of I have to thank Andy once again as those before me have done, for a VERY well done tutorial. I read and reread that tutorial so many times I could probably recite it by heart. But it was super easy to follow, and for my first box, I'm pretty happy with the result. I spent months...
  7. Andy-Style Box #2, with Silver Medallion

    I finally finished my second attempt at an Andy-style art box as a gift for my cousin's wedding (made following the fine tutorials here ). My father made the silver repousse medallion with their initials, which we epoxied into a large forstner-made hole after the finish was dry. Since I now...
  8. Art Boxes For Christmas

    So after finishing the Princess Kaylee headboard project that I posted a couple weeks ago I was trying to come up with some gift ideas when I came across that great tutorial by Andy about his art boxes. So I thought that would be a great gift for my wife, mom and mother in-law. I actually made...
  9. Headaches, Bewilderment, and New Addictions

    Well, I have finally started finishing my "Winter Projects". I started the router table back in August but it quickly got put aside as Christmas, and all the gifts I wanted to get done, started drawing to a close. The router table is "The Ultimate Router Table" from Fine Woodworking. I've wired...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi gents. Someone is selling a powermatic 6" jointer model 054 with a 3/4 hp motor for $400. I'm guessing it's at least 10-12 years old and looks to be in great shape (according to the pictures). Does anyone other than me think $400 is a bit steep for this jointer? Is 3/4 horse enough power...
  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    A friend asked if I could repair some of his chairs that have become loose over the years. I said I would research it and see if I was in over my head. This is one of the chairs. It has eight spindles and loose seat legs. Has anyone repaired a chair like this? Any suggestions? How long, on...
