  1. Burl wood topped box, Turquoise Inlay

    I bought some lumber from a woman cleaning out her barn, $10/wheel barrow full. I added a stump of burl wood to the pile. After cutting on the band saw and running the piece through my planer, I trimmed it with purple heart and maple. The sides are of ambrosia maple with walnut splines. I...
  2. Free Disk Sander

    Some time ago I had the opportunity to use a disk sander, I was surprised how useful it could be, but had neither the money nor the space for one, so I had the idea of making a shop built Disk Sander on my lathe; the table is attached to tapped holes in the lathe bed-frame using thumb-screws in...
  3. Overhead Press/Clamp (MACPRESS)

    I made this from an old rusty (but very strong) clamp and a piece of wood from a demolition. My studio has a concrete roof and this is braced against it, so the pressure exerted is considerable, While great as a press for gluing up, I find it invaluable for general clamping as it acts far from...

  6. World's BIGGEST band saw box!

    No, wait…it's the world's smallest. (Unconfirmed by anything other than my ego.) Actually, I made it on the scroll saw, just as a little woodworking diversion. Care to try an even smaller one?
  7. Morris Chair- Retirement Gift

    About five years ago my mother retired from a career she had spent most of my lifetime dedicating herself to. As a retirement gift, her colleagues gave her a very nice rocking chair. I thought this was an elegant retirement gift, way better than a watch that the the newly retired no longer...
  8. Cutting Board for a Dressmaker

    I built this wooden work platform for my mother, who is getting back into dressmaking now that she has retired. Her apartment doesn't really have any good spaces for her to lay large bolts of fabric on the floor so she can mark and cut it. So, I went over to the local recycle store and picked up...

    Ok so this project is a few months old now. Work has been keeping me busy here recently. anyway…...... Back in January our neighbor said that she was throwing a Bloody Valentine party and that it would be gangster theme and to dress the part. Well being as I am blessed with this ability to...
  11. Amy's Living Room

    Amy is my younger daughter. As the younger she was first to ask for, and receive furniture from her Daddy. As a result there is less refinement in the first two pieces I made for her than in my current work: these were designed around special requirements. they needed to serve as side tables...
  12. Solid Walnut cabinet

    I made this cabinet for my employer Ornamentum Furniture about a year and half ago. The Gables are 1 1/2 thick and span the cabinets height. Showing the end grain at the top was a bold design choice and i made sure to line up all my laminations from top too gables giving it a very linear look...
  13. Tree Troll

    I copied this carving from the first carving book I bought. "HOW TO CARVE FACES IN DRIFTWOOD" By Harold L. Enlow. I highly recommend this book. It helped me with my early carving. It has quite a few patterns in it. You don't have to use driftwood, use any kind of wood. Carving material: Big...
  14. K-D Mission Desk

    My latest big build is this knock-down Mission style desk. I modified plans I found in a book from 1910. I made it deeper (from 12" to 16") to make it more stable and so it fits a 17" laptop inside. It can be taken apart, shipped flat and re-assembled without tools. Simply pull the back up and...
  15. A few new pens

    I've been turning a few pens a month, maybe more, and wanted to share some of the new ones. One of these is my current "daily writer" - the copper Euro pen made with "Cats Eye" acrylic. I got the kit and the blank from Woodturningz. I just made the Slimline pencil yesterday, from a Woodcraft...
