  3. Problem Child

    I have to say that this is one project that I'm glad to be done with. It fought me tooth and nail from the word go. The main box is made from Birch, which is my first time using, other than in ply form. This is not a user friendly wood, at least it wasn't for me that is. I made this for my...
  4. Small Aromatic Cedar Bandsaw Boxes

    Here are a couple small bandsaw boxes i whipped up from leftover aromatic cedar cut offs. Had some difficulty with the camera, these are so small when I zoomed in on them they didn't want to come into focus. The first one is pretty small, about 2-1/2" diameter, I wanted to see how tight I...

  6. Closet Organizer

    Quick built closet organizer. Used local beetle kill pine complete with the signature blue stains and lined the back with aromatic cedar. This replaced a single span shelf made out of mdf.

  7. Rocky Overlook

    "Rocky Overlook" This carving was done with a Dremel, and measures 9×39x3/4 inches. The wood is Aromatic Cedar, I chose the wood because of its imperfections (which give me the subject idea) It is finished with Polycrylic. This is a tall rocky cliff with a lighthouse overlooking clouds. There...
  8. Eagle Nest Chest

    The Eagle Nest Chest I have been adding a combination locking system to hope chests for some time now and one day a fella commented that he would like to see the dials hidden behind a false panel, that it too would be locked from access. How it works: The nest sitting on top of the chest...

  15. Wenge and Maple Chisel Plane

    Recently, I was perusing the Lie Nielson website, and I came across their chisel plane. As I have a growing appreciation for the value that hand tools bring to a modern power workshop, I really like the idea of a plane that can access 90' corners. As this plane is primarily used for pretty...

    The Lost Weekend Chest is the sequel to the Lost Day Chest. This chest is about three times the size and like The Lost Day this is a "Stem to Stern" styled piece in which the entire interior space is filled with secret compartments and wooden locking systems. One thing puzzler's love is a...

  20. unfinished crib

    The crib was started well before my baby boy was born and now he is sleeping in a toddler bed. And the crib is still not finished. That being said that is why the the four side stiles are not finished and there are still pencil scribes and some machining marks on parts of the crib. The maple...
