  1. "Go" Board Version II

    Someone saw my first game board and wanted one so…......................... I laminated two sheets of 1/2" Baltic Birch Plywood together and trimmed it all in Poplar hardwood. Added some stain and a light coat of polyurethane. Baltic Birch is one of the most stable woods for plywood. Laminated...
  2. Stone Inlaid .22 Stock

    I share a shop with a gunsmith - so I guess it was only a matter of time before someone asked for stone inlay in a gun! This .22 came in only partly functional and with a stock that appeared to have been "modified" at some point by someone with more energy than skill. Since it was going to be a...
  3. Trevor's Cubbies

    These Cubbies were made for my Grandson's play room. They were prefabricated in my shop in Salisbury,Md., & assembled in my son's garage in Douglasville ,Ga. The 1st pict are the upper 5 Cubbies; the 2nd are the 3 base Cubbies; 3rd pict the Cubbies assembled (insides finished); 4th pict the...
  4. Entry Bench

    We moved into a new house in January and the coat closet is not next to the door, there are also hickory floors that I don't want to scratch up with gravel from the driveway. This was the end result. The base is birch plywood and poplar, the top is poplar finished with stain and a thick coat...
  5. Simple Book Case

    Built in the late 1990's. This simple book case is made from birch plywood with a solid birch face frame, base, and molding. The choice of materials and construction techniques allow for relatively quick construction. I used half-lap joints on the face frame. I made the molding by...
  6. Balvenie (Scotch) Cabinet

    This is a project I have worked on for way too long, (Work and Football season have really taken their toll). In my continuing quest for better hand cut dovetails and building small cabinets, i built this out of Flame Birch and Peruvian Walnut. I purchased the Birch with no project in mind, but...
  7. Supplementary Kitchen Cabinet

    A little exercise in captive panel construction. I needed a little more storage space off the floor for my kitchen and I wanted it to match the exsisting cabinetry as best as I could. It's red oak with birch panels (I was not going to pay for bookmatched oak plywood…) and finished with General...
  8. Baby Changing Table

    A friend of ours recently had her first baby. Using a suggestion I got from LJ.com, I went to the Lowe's website and got the plans. It would seem that Lowe's plans are created for the very occasional woodworker. No complex joinery here, but it did help ensure that the project moved along very...
  9. Big @#$ bed

    I started this bed about 4 months ago and worked evenings and weekends to complete it. It is a California King bed. The headboard is 8 feet tall and the footboard is 42 inches tall. Hard to see the size of this dude from this picture. The whole bed weighs more than 600 pounds. Raised panel...
  10. Snath, sneith, snaith, snead, sneath, sned, snathe,... scythe handle!

    Seems that this highly traditional item is known by many names… There is an area on my parents in law's farm popularly called "Ekekullen" (oak hill). It lies between their house and a creek and has long been kept with a scythe to keep open. Traditionally grass was harvested for the farm animals...
  11. Cutting Board w/ handle slot

    I made nine of the birch and walnut cutting boards for gifts, while using up a bunch of scrap wood.
  12. Custom cribbage board

    Made for friends that are full-time RV-ers. Made from birch and I made a template at the same time. Stock cribbage layout stretched for a larger board. Lettering and motor-home are hand-drawn and burned. Light torching on edges and face for effect. Very slight rounding on all edges with...
  13. Birch pinch bowls

    Heres 2 pinch bowls I made from birch! Ill do my best to explain how I made them.. I have a chainsaw mill, so I used that to mill it into 1.5" planks. Handplane.. Drew a circle in the center, and with my 2" gouge , carved out the bowl. A quick sand, then finished with a bees wax and mineral...
  14. A Coffee Table of filtched design

    My first project that I'm willing to share :) I've made some nightstands and cutting boards, but this is the first I'm really willing to share with everyone. It started as a wish to replace the crappy Target coffee table we had, and browsing lumberjocks for ideas. I ran across this one...
  15. Spalted Birch Lidded Vessel

    This is my first lidded vessel, and the second attempt with the spalted birch log I'm using. The top collar and lid/finial are done in western red cedar. I found it too soft to hold any detail, as small beads and features crumbled too easily. Next time I'll use only a dense hardwoood for a...
  16. 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.
  17. Rustic Entry Bench

    This is a rustic entry bench I built for my Dad's 68th birthday in a couple weeks. It will go great with the style of his home. It is made from a single slab of birch that had been air drying since 1968. The insects got to it during this time so there are a lot of worm holes in it. The legs...
  18. '32 Ford Sedan Hot Rod Freaky Ford Blue Toy Car

    The second car in the blue series. A 1932 Ford Sedan. I have several sets of these waiting for finishing and and assembly. The idea is to test different finishes and techniques with each set. The car body is made from MDF the rest of the parts are birch. The body paint is Hoe Depot oops paint...
  19. Han Solo Blaster

    My girlfriend went as Han Solo for Halloween this year so naturally I had to make her the blaster. I started by finding a design I liked online and imported the image into SolidWorks. I scaled it to a size I thought appropriate and from there created all the separate parts and made the assembly...
  20. Freedom Pens

    Another batch of Freedom Pens for the men and women in uniform serving our country overseas. These are a mix of Birch, Cherry, Maple, and Oak … the pen blanks come from off-falls I get by the bundle at a local cabinet shop. For more info on the Freedom Pens project, and to get involved, see...
