  1. Writing Slope !

    A blast from the (recent) past. Back in 2000/01, when I was out of work and thought there might be a bit of money to be made in it, I made this writing slope. Under the Rosewood and Bird's Eye Maple veneer beats a heart of solid MDF (its an excellent veneer substrate, being flat and stable). The...
  2. Tattoo Mirror

    I have to admit, this project was inspired by Roger's beautiful Hand Mirrors. But I had always wanted to make one and I thought it would be the perfect gift for my Tattoo Artist. Next week he will be expanding on a tattoo he gave me earlier this year. My tattoo will be a complete half-back...

  4. BOX CLAMP

    First of a big Thank You for all the replys on my last post ! This clamping system has been on my mind for some time and yesterday I set out to put it into reality as I started a box and thought I put and end to the frustation of clamping a box and still get the odd box that is out of square...
  5. Coffee Table

    A simple coffee table. The top is made out of solid birds eye maple. The bottom tier is made out of solid maple. The shape was a chalenge for me. Having no straight lines was new to me. In the end I cut it with a jig saw just shy of my line and then sanded and sanded and sanded until I got...

  9. A couple of Comfort pens

    The 1st pic is of a new comfort kit that PSI has. It is a black enamel finish on the hardware.

Sanded to 600 grit , finished with 6 coats of BLO/CA and buffed to 12,000...
  10. Digital Clock Case

    This is an OOOOOOOOOOld project. I used to build digital clocks in 1970 ( before they were on the market) and I made steel cases for them when I worked in the tool room. I found 3 of these completed kits from Optoelectronics in a box in my office and decided to finish them. One of them...

  18. Greene and Greene Side Table
