  1. Dulcitar/Strumstick

    My brother used to play guitar, but now no longer has the time to maintain his skills. I found these "Strumstick" guitars online that are designed in a way so that no matter what fret your finger is on, you are always in the same scale so all the notes work together. I gathered as much info as...
  2. Autumn raccoon

    Last weeks I did my second intarsia piece. And I have learned a lot. First I stoped using my chevalet du marqueteri. I had hoped that I could use this chevalet for this work. The biggest problem was clamping. So halfway I disided to use my bandsaw. My finest blade is 6 mm and therefor I made the...
  3. My version of a Teardrop Trailer

    We call her "Fern". Okay, so this project isn't completely made of wood, but it's mostly wood. This is a 4 ft. by 8 ft. cedar Teardrop trailer. I used a rusty old homemade trailer frame I found in field as the foundation for this project. My goal during the building process was to preserve...
  4. Steam Bent Trout Fishing Nets

    These were a lot of fun to make. The woods I used were Walnut, Alder, & Cherry. I finished them with five coats of Minwax Marine Spar Varnish in clear gloss. The net bags are rubber, which is easier on the fish for catch and release fishing. They are laced to the frames with 200lb braided...

  8. New staircase - adhoc remodeling

    I was in the process of laying new Santos Mahogany flooring down and it was obvious that the whole pink terrazzo - wrought Iron - Berber carpet staircase thing had to go. With no budget to tackle this in a traditional sense I decided to "just start" with materials I had available and see where...
  9. Arched Candle Holder

    This is a piece that I finished in the last week or so. I covered the construction in a blog series that starts here. It started as 4 thin planks of cherry. The base pieces are lacewood with a walnut trim. It was a lot of fun to make as I let the design take shape as I went along. I'm pretty...

  11. Alabama Governor's Presentation Case

  12. Russian Charoite Inlay on Macassar Ebony

    I finally got around to using some Russian charoite for a wedding set. Probably a bit too feminine for the majority here on LJ's huh? :)
  13. Flower Table

    My mother in-law asked me to make her a simple zebra wood table stand for a set of zebra wood chairs she purchased for her sunroom. I have a issue with "simple"... I can't do simple. She is a very "pink" lady who collects glass flowers so I designed and built this table for her. Italian poplar...
  14. Walnut and Curly Maple Landing Net

    So after making my own landing net, my fly fishing partner and Brother in Law also wanted to make a net, so we used some of the materials that I had in the garage from some other projects and proceeded to make his net. This had been some time since I had finished my first net I had learned...
  15. Another Custom Sierra Fly Fishing Net - Wenge, Mahogany, and Cocobolo w/ Burl Oak Magnetic Catch

    this is a project from back when I was in 4-H. the sled is made of solid maple. the curves have been steam bent, which was a bit of leaning curve figuring out how long to steam. I finished it with a marine varnish (which I would not do again, it is to soft and rubs of the bottom)

  18. Shaker Oval Boxes

    Here is the completed set of nesting shaker oval boxes in cherry I blogged about. Took a class with Dale Barnard in Paoli, IN over a weekend.
