  1. Paper Towel and Bag Holder

    I made this paper towel and shopping bag holder because the bags are usually stuffed somewhere and the are never handy. (At least in my house anyway.) This piece is 16" tall to the peak of the roof. It is 5 1/2" wide and 10" long. I made it out of 1/2" poplar. The dowel is 1" round with a...
  2. Santa on Toboggan

    This is a Santa Claus riding a toboggan downhill with a bag of toys. The carving is about 4 inches tall and 6 inches long, 3 inches wide. Carved from basswood, painted with acrylic paints. This was an interesting carving to do, as I had to do the carving with the wood grain horizontal to...
  3. Traditional Santa

    This is a simple little traditional Santa Claus with a bag. Carved from basswood, he stands 5.5 inches tall. Claude
  4. Sugar Pine Live Edge Table

    I like the rustic style of having the live edge on my furniture. This table has what I call a restaurant finish (envirotex).
  5. Santa Claus with Bag...

    Latest Santa - stands 6 inches tall, basswood. Some of you may wonder how Santa can get all those presents into such a small bag… The answer, I found out, after asking one of the elves who said he must remain anonymous, is that the bag was made by the same manufacturer who made Mary Poppins'...
  6. Second attempt at bean bag boards

    My first set was a painting disaster. Had to read up on paint do's and DON'TS. Turns out I had the "don'ts" down pretty well….... and it showed. This time the paint went on and stayed on much better. I used a Kreg pocket hole jig so there are no visible holes to fill and construction of the...

  8. Owl night lights

    I made the deer/owl light first (last 2 pics). A friend asked if I could do one with a snowman and my sister asked for one with a golden retriever. I just want to make people happy…thanks for looking!
  9. 18th Century Dressing Table

    This was a fun, yet challenging project. It was my first attempt at carving ball and claw feet. Built from Mahogany, using full width pieces, (22"wide boards), we closely followed the construction details found in the original 18th century Low Boy's. We did use compression methods to ensure the...
  10. 10' Birds Eye Maple Dinning Table

    I offered to build a ten foot dinning room table as a house warming present for my brother in law. We used a technique which cut down on the weight considerably. This technique consisted of using a resin coated honeycomb cardboard, which was one inch tall, for the center core of the table. This...
  11. Home Office

    The custom desk project was built to fit into this room. We took the original design from the architect, and some comments from the owner, and came up with this. It is a combination of both of their ideas, plus a few of our own. The hardwood is Mahogany. The veneers are Quilted Makore. The...
  12. Demilune Tables - Part One

    I love working with veneer! The possibilities are endless, and the material is relatively easy to work with. One project I make often is Hall or Demilune tables. Photo one is a table I gave to a client. Unfortunately, I didn't bother to get a better shot of it, as it's pretty nice. This one is...
  13. The Platten for Vacuum Systems

    When gluing up panels in a vacuum bag, it is important to have a substrate under the parts. This substrate is called a platten. The platten is supporting the parts, much like a bench top. The platten is inserted into the bag along with the project being glued up. The more important purpose...
  14. AppleWood TreePod

    My first veneer attempt. Christmas Approaching, Sister wanted an iPod. So I got her one… out of wood. She was ecstatic for a split second. Then gave her the real iPod. She showed her friends, and they kept pressing buttons asking, "Have you charged it yet?" I only had a few days before...
  15. Crotch Walnut Clock

    My dad was wanting to cut down a walnut tree that was on the edge of a field and offered me the stump. The rest he was using for firewood. There wasn't anything big enough for lumber. When I saw one of the crotches of a branch I asked to have that as well. This was one half of the crotch and...
  16. Christmas gift or toy in a bag. Flipper Toy

    Budman posted a project which he called birdhouse in a bag. He was suggesting that you/me could make up small items that your/mine children/grandchildren could come into the shop and make a project. Dan is also running the Christmas Items that could be made. This could fit in either or both...
  17. Bag dispenser from reclaimed wood

    It seems like I always need one of those plastic grocery bags when I'm outside of down in the basement. My wife often comes in from the yard through our back ground entrance for a bag to pluck out the poison ivy she just found. Finally I grabbed up a few of the pallet wood boards that I had...
  18. mini urn

    A friend's wife after a painfully hard battle, passed away from pancreatic cancer at 38. He asked me to make a small urn to keep part of her ashes in. It was an honored to be asked. Then he asked me to do it on my mini lathe. I'm new to turning and hadn't done anything other than pens. That...
  19. Table Scraps

    I've been meaning to post these for awhile. My butcher block tables are made out of oak, walnut, maple, and cherry scraps. I built two end tables and a coffee table. The legs are two 8/4 glued back to back, stained walnut (minwax). I used a conversion varnish finish. Great table for having kids...
  20. grocery bag trash can and holder

    I was using a 2 qt. paint mixing container for my trash (very small shop). I wanted something a bit bigger. I used a french cleat to hang it. I think this will work great. Not real pretty but its only for the shop
