  1. Necklace on Zebra Wood scraps- Art Deco

    These pictures are horrible- my camera is a junker- and it doesn't have much zoom power :/ so I apologize for the lack of clarity. Anyway, this is a necklace made on wood scraps (zebra wood) The wood pieces are about 1 1/2 inches long and 1 -1 1/4 for the short ones. The wood is sanded then...
  2. Yep - deco style gibbet lamp

    Your eyes do not deceive you - it's a gibbet! This has been on my personal "to do" list for a very very long time. I rewarded myself for doing some of the projects that I was supposed to do - kitchen shelving and a door (maybe I'll post later) - with something, which, let's face it, no-one in...

  6. Art Deco-ish Band Saw Box

    This is my second bandsaw box. Again, I'm just practicing using my new bandsaw. I found out where I was making a mistake after this one (although I corrected it with a lot of sanding). I thought my blade was too wide to make 90 degree cuts in this thick of wood on the curves, but it turns...
  7. Art Deco Pool Que Rack

    I googled and searched for years to find a pool que rack to match our Art Deco theme. I finally found the inspiration for this in the light fixture next to where the rack is located (see photo). I built this during glue ups and drying of the game table that I posted. It had some surprising...

  9. Claro Walnut, Art Deco, Jewelry Box

    So I just finished this box. I didn't do any woodworking over the fall and winter so it was fun to get back into it. This box is for my cousin who likes Mickey Mouse. I had a much easier time shaping this box than I did with my first one. I used 30 grit planing sandpaper on my benchtop sander...
  10. Deco Cabinet

    It's been a while since I posted a project and realized I haven't shared our latest furniture. Couple months ago, we were contacted by a designer in LA to create a deco cabinet inspired by an elevator door in LA. At first we worked on a trompe-l'oeil concept Then with the deigner, we...
  11. Zebrawood Dining Table

    We made this small dining table for a New York City apartment. The client wanted to have an Art Deco feel for the piece and after some discussion we settled on zebrawood and brass with a rubbed satin magnalac finish. We cut the veneers from a single board and veneereed two sides of the legs to...
  12. art deco/rustic bed

    This was a design challenge. My son likes rustic furniture and his wife likes art deco. This is my cut at combing the two. The headboard and foot board frames are hickory with rustic cedar panels. Side rails are also cedar. I used bed bolts and embedded them so that no hardware shows. PS-...
  13. In Case Of Zombies...

    The counter staff at my gym were discussing the 'Zombie Apocalypse' recently, an End of the World scenario that, to me, is equally probable and credible to those postulated by the Mayans, Harold Camping, and any other doomsday prophet I've ever heard. Anyway, without commenting on the...

    Finally finished the main part of my latest project, a pergola. Made from rough sawn cedar and sealed with Stillen tint-able oil based sealer.

  17. Lane cedar chest gets a new (3rd?) life!

    A Lane cedar chest built in 1954, originally in oak veneer, was painted by my client some 20 or 25 years ago in a red over green crackle paint that was in fashion at the time. He recently asked what,if anything, I could do to the chest that might save it, as it was originally his mothers. The...

    This is my wife's Christmas present, from last year. I finally finished it in time for this Christmas. It is based on a 1930's Climax Emerald radio (see the last picture). The body is cherry, and the accent pieces are ebonized walnut. The clock face is comprised of a variety woods (Maple...

  20. Wedding Memory Box

    An art deco style box for my nephew's wedding. I made this out of quilted maple (front, back and sides) and curly cherry (top and bottom). After deciding on the overall outside dimension I wanted, I made decisions along the way. The idea of the cherry corners came after I mitered and glued up...
