  3. A Man's Box

    This was a birthday gift for my friend Adam. He showed an interest during my first Andy box so I decided he needed one also. I tried to make it more masculine looking for him. Its made from Wenge & Bloodwood. Thanks to my fellow Lumberjocks, the hinges came out much better than my last Andy...
  4. 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. Floating Shelf for Nursery

    My wife charged me with making a floating shelf for the nursery. Catch was, it had to match the existing furniture we already had. The shelf itself is pretty simple. I just made a box out of poplar and then a support out of pine that bolted to the studs in the wall. Getting the profile to...
  7. "Class Act" a Palm Box

    Another Palm Box, this one in bloodwood with a wild piece of cherry. The button is wenge, maple and bloodwood. It was made by laminating the strips together and cutting it out with a plug cutter, then shaped on the drum sander. I pinned the lid in place and taped it shut so it wouldnt squirm and...
  8. Wood & Lumber
    Hi! New guy here, so please be gentle. I know this has probably been asked a billion times, so what's one more. I was at my local hardwood lumber place and I picked out a nice piece of snakewood to use to turn some beer mugs with. I told the counter person and he said snakewood was highly toxic...

  10. Jigs & Fixtures
    I am planning on making Articulating Arm Hollowing System similar to Captains Eddies Snake Hollower or the Monster Hollowing System. I have most of it planned out but I need some assistance in figuring out what bearing I should use in the joints. I have come up with the three options below...
  11. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I have been an admirer of Andy's art boxes ever since I first joined LJ. I hope one day to make one. I saw an 'Andy box' at a flea market yesterday and was so excited to see one in person. It was maple and walnut on the outside with cherry trays inside (so the tag said). The outside was...
