  1. Basket Weave Endgrain Board

    After seeing a couple edge grain cheese boards on here with the basket weave pattern I decided to give it a shot for an end grain board. I made this as a birthday present and it took me forever. haha It was a good leaning experience trying to get all of the glue ups right and milling all of...
  2. Skunk and Scrolls

    This 10-22 belongs to a good friend of mine. He will probably be the only person who asks me to engrave a skunk on their rifle. To each his own, it was a lot of fun to engrave. I engraved a basket weave pattern over where the checkering would go and bordered everything with a scroll leaf pattern...
  3. Grizzly Bear & Basketweave

    The Grizzly Bear gun is a Colt 45 Long Rifle. It was a beautiful piece to begin with. The gun owner wanted a bear and gave me the artistic liberty to come up with something nice for him. I chose basket weave again and kept the engraving a lighter stain to help the bear pop out more. I tried...
  4. Glider Bench

    This is one of four Spring/Summer projects I'm completing, to clear out shop for winter work. This project came about as I cleaned the shop after my bed, dresser and armoire projects. It was a lot of the shop scrap, Curly Maple, Cherry and some Walnut from an earlier project. they were glued up...
  5. Weaving an Entertainment Center

    Before I owned a house, I watched the home improvement shows every Saturday night, and looked forward to the time that I could do the things I was seeing on the TV: the Navy frowned on major renovations to the housing units. Now that I own a house, I long for the time when if I needed something...
  6. Basket Weave Cutting Boards

    A couple basket weave style cutting boards I put together. They are made from 5/4 QS White Oak and Walnut for the striping. I found the idea here on LJs and could not resist. My non woodworking friends have a hard time figuring out how its done, some think its done with stain. If it was only...
  7. Basket weave end table and cutting board

    I'm new here, lots of great information and inspiration! These are two recent projects built to sell with my wife's fused glass artwork at the local gallery/gift shop. I've always liker the arts/crafts/mission style and wanted to build examples, this way I get to hone my skills (And sell the...
  8. The Eater Bunny

    The next in a series of sculptural spoons. It all started as a small V-crotch that I cut from a friend's dead Grapefruit tree. I was just going to let the wood lead me to what sort of spoon and for the longest time it looked like a frog (legs instead of ears). Somewhere down the line the bunny...
  9. Basket Weave Cutting Board

    So, I had kind of a last minute Christmas gift I wanted to make, and I decided to do a basket weave cutting board. It's comprised of curly maple, walnut and chakte kok. I needed some guidance, and a quick google search led me to a tutorial done by none other than a relative of mine back east...
  10. Basket Weave Cutting Board

    Just finished applying the finish to a new cutting board. I finally attempted a basket weave design and I'm very happy with it. The idea came from quite a few different projects I looked at here on this site….thank you to everyone that shares these great projects. I used hard maple, purple...
  11. Basketweave Scrolled Vase

    This was done on the scroll saw, using a concentric ring construction for the basket weave. The boards were laminated strips of oak and walnut to get the striped look. The top rim and base were cut from the same piece of oak. the whole basket was cut from 3/8 inch stock. the cutting was finicky...
  12. Simple Basket Weave

    Cutting Board White Oak with Walnut accent 13" x 10" x 1-1/4" This is a much simpler variation of the tight weave pattern that I did a while back. As long as you are careful to cut the blocks square and to size, this is a comparatively easy glue-up that gives a nice result. The grain direction...
  13. Focus on the Workspace
    Metal working is a pretty broad category in my garage including everything from light artistic sheet metal work to mechanical work on cars & trucks. Some (maybe many) of the tools used in the garage are also needed in the wood shop and having two of everything on top of what some would consider...
  14. Wood & Lumber
    I'm fairly new to LJ and new to woodworking. I'm repairing two broken legs of a small end table. The legs had compeletely broken off. After gluing and pin nailing the legs, there is a small gap in one leg and a larger crevice in the other leg that need to be filled and stained. I've uploaded...

    basket weave boxes Ok a little while ago I posted a project that was a box that was made to look like a basket weave. It is very striking to look at if you dont know how it is made and is really easy if you have a scroll saw. A few people were interested in the making of it so here goes-...
  17. Wood & Lumber
    Hi, I've looked at this website for some time and really like the content. That being said, I'd like to start my posts on the forums with a little question. I've recently obtained some expensive veneer pieces but the previous owner glued the 2' x 2' pieces back to back. I was wondering if...
