  1. Letter Box with Engraving

    Made this for a family friend. Solid Birch soss hinges and lee valley magnets. This was done on the CNC made out of two pieces.
  2. Bespoke Cigar Travel Case

    When meeting up with friends to smoke cigars, I currently take my two to three cigars in a bright yellow, hard plastic cigar case. It works. It ain't special. It doesn't catch any eyes. So I decided to make a handsome wooden case to travel with my three cigars. Walnut top/bottom sandwiching...
  3. Barrel Hinge Box

    My latest box in which I sought advice regarding the mounting of the barrel hinges. Thanks for all the help from the jocks. It has a lot of router tear-outs and the plywood lid is mounted rather poorly, I'll be working on those techniques in the future. On the good side of things I think I...
  4. Olivewood box

    I was compelled to make this box of olive wood. I was lucky enough to get this piece from Calabria Italy. So I made this as a gift for a special day to remember. I used 5 m&m barrel hinges for the first time here. I am not to swift at setting hinges but this wasn't as bad as first thought...
  5. Time in a box

    Recently finished… Finally, a nice home for some of my watches. I do not see many of these on LJ so thought I would share, and maybe inspire someone else who is interested in new and/or vintage watches. I am still in the process of making custom cushions for the watches - so the ones...
  6. Walnut Wall Cabinet

    Here's a hanging wall cabinet I recently completed. It's about 30 inches tall, 10 inches wide, and 6 inches deep. Made from walnut and maple details. The front and back panels are book matched walnut with sap wood edges. Finished with a couple coats of Tried and True. I really liked making...
  7. Failed Humidor, Succesful Pencilbox?

    These are a couple of humidors I attempted a while back. Maybe some of you cigar/humidor experts can tell me where and how I went wrong. The second box, made of Paduak and QS Sycamore, was my first attempt, and I knew I had made several mistakes. Mainly the size was too small, plus I did not...
  8. Cherry Pastel Box (CNC)

    Prototype of a box I am developing to sell on my etsy page @ http://www.etsy.com/people/ivamir. The box is used to protect artist pastels as they break easily. The case is designed to be used on the desk or for transport. I have another one for 30 pastels in the works. With the magnetic...
  9. Retirement Pen/Pencil Set

    This is a pen/pencil/box set I made for my boss as a retirement gift. The pen/pencil are made of wenge and are American Slimeline style purchased from Woodcraft. The box I made from Cherry. You can see the trouble I had in routing the grooves. I held the pieces too long at the end without...
  10. Small Yucatan Rosewood Ring Box

    I made this box for my daughter about two years ago. She needed something to hold her small but growing collection of rings, so I saw an opportunity to try my hand at box making and learn some new techniques. I decided to try to build a box that looked like a solid, seamless block of wood with a...
  11. Circa 1936

    Wow! A second place in the contest. Thanks everyone for the support. http://lumberjocks.com/awards/winter_2011/results/14 A box to hold greeting cards. This is something I started working on over three years ago. We moved and it got shelved. To be honest, I really didnt want to finish it, all...
  12. Jewelry Box

    It's for my granddaughter, her first jewelry box. I had watched The Woodwhisperer make some of these (http://www.thewoodwhisperer.com/videos/scrapwood-jewelry-boxes/) and used the same plan. I made mine taller so I could add a drawer. I didn't use flocking, but used some self-adhesive felt to...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey Everyone, Has anyone used SOSS® Concealed Barrel Hinges when building boxes? I've been looking around for an affordable 'invisible' hinge and this seems to fit the bill, but I'd like to know your experiences prior to purchasing. I've also looked at quadrant hinges, but they're a bit pricey...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I bought the Porter Cable dovetail jig some time back and have been practicing box and drawer construction with an intent to graduate into smaller and thinner jewelry-style boxes. But for now I'm working with cheap 1" whitewood. So here's my question: I purchased the below barrel hinges from...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I had a slight problem with my Axminster Lathe yesterday. I would press the "power on" button, it may run for a minute or so, then just stop! It appears that this fault is down to the switch, in this case (and that of MANY power tools in the workshop) it's a type of switch called a "None Volt...
