  1. Modern Wall Clock - first veneering project

    Three goals for this project: 1. Replace a clock that had gone bad. 2. Fill a large wall with something that was "catchy". 3. Practice veneering for the first time. My wife had bought me some lacewood veneer from Woodcraft two Christmas' ago. She hadn't asked about it, but I knew the...
  2. Marking/Cutting Gauge

    One of the habits I've developed over the years is to stay focused on one project at a time. This is the only way that I don't end up with a shop full of half finished projects. With ADD like mine I can easily get distracted by new exciting project ideas. This past year I spent a lot of time...
  3. Keepsake box commission for a friend

    My neighbor has been watching me woodwork for years and recently commissioned me to build a custom box of my design for him to have for holding loose coins. I started with a recently obtained wood gift from a fellow LJer, Ron at Tule Peak Lumber. He gave me a beautiful Q-sawn Sycamore slab to...
  4. Elm TV stand/coffee table. 1785 New England barn beam transformed!

    I present my greatest "rescued from the woodpile" salvaged piece to date. Where I live and the proximity to some great Timber framers, from time to time I get asked to help out with a barn restore or tear-down. This particular barn had collapsed few years back during a heavy snow accumulation...
  5. Jewelry Box

    Here is a jewelry box that I made my wife for Christmas. It is made with Birds Eye Maple and Red Cherry, finished with shellac.
  6. Custom Fly Fishing Net Wenge, Bird's Eye Maple, Curly Maple, Walnut with Magnetic catch

    So, I am extremely pleased with the way this net came out. To be honest, I didn't like it at first (in the rough) but as I put coat after coat of hand rubbed finish, the silky smooth bird's eye maple just took on a beautiful life of its own. Now, the net is so supple that it reminds me why I...
  7. Pet Urns

    I made the urns a few years ago and never got around to posting them. The first one was made for my aunt and uncle when their dog passed away. It is walnut with ash inlay. The second I made for my dog when she passed away, its quilted maple and walnut with birds eye maple on the top. The third I...
  8. :: SAPELE MAPLE MOON ::

    SAPELE MAPLE MOON :: Tropical African Sapele with Birds eye Maple. Inch & quarter thick and eight inch across with a key hole slot on the rear to hang it up. Im quite pleased with the result, no reason for making it. Just sort of came together messing about. Never used these woods befor but...
  9. Jewelry Boxes

    I had a few scrap pieces of birds eye maple and black walnut left over from some other projects so I put together some jewelry boxes for gifts.
  10. Jewelry box with string inlay

    My first challenge to a string inlay. (please see my previous post of the inlay tools) Since my blades are not sharp enough to make the clean cut against the grain, the result of my challenge is not comfortable. Next time shall be better I hope.
  11. compass rose

    compass rose made of walnut and curly maple inlayed in birds eye maple
  12. 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...

  14. Cupcake Box

    All done with my original design cupcake box. It's made from Bird's Eye Maple, Bocote, Bloodwood, Walnut, Oak, and Padauk. Some things need to be tweaked if I make another one but it came out pretty decent for a prototype. Finished with mineral oil and lacquer. It measures about 7-1/4" long x...
  15. Cavetto Jewelry Box

    My second try at box building and the first with a cavetto top. The box is 9" x 6" x 4" and is birds eye maple veneer over a 1/2" Baltic birch ply box. The Cavetto molding was built up using MDF. African blackwood was used for the edging and base molding. Brusso hinges and mocha suede...
  16. Deep Platter 12 inches wide by 2 1/4 inches high.

    I found this piece of maple Ive had for a couple years, it was a ruined project I had tried to use some enlace I had bought from Woodcraft. The enlace, I read later, was supposed to be crushed up before using. After ruining a couple of tools, I took it off and threw it in the corner. Well I dug...
  17. The Coat of Many Colors, a segmented turning

    My most mixed up piece of all. There are more pictures and a how-to article on my segmented turning site. I will have some other segmented turning projects and some segmented turning kits available pretty soon.
  18. Bubinga/Wenge/Bird's Eye Maple box

    I think the combination of these three woods makes for a very attractive lid. The bubinga was thick enough to allow some shaping to the side of the box. Making the miter joints is always a challenge as I make them on a Craftsman table saw, you know the ones where the motor hangs off the back. It...
  19. Running Draft Box

    This is my first band saw box. I wanted to design something myself so I did a running draft horse with three drawers and double horseshoe drawer pulls. It took a bit of fine finagling to balance the bottom/feet just right so the weight of the head didn't tip the whole box forward. I lined the...
  20. Jewellery Box - Jatoba & Burr Walnut

    This jewellery box was made for my mothers 60th Birthday. It is made from Jatoba with a burr Walnut top and a tulipwood banding. The trays are made from Birds eye maple. The splines and the handle are also Walnut. The hinges are SmartBox Hinge. This was my first box made with mitred corners...
