  1. Skills Canada PEI Table

    This is a table that I made for the Skills Canada PEI competition in cabinetmaking. It has curly maple legs with a birds eye maple top and shelf. The other two that you see are ones I made on my own time, not part of the competition. They have birds eye maple top and shelf with poplar legs. For...
  2. "Float Top" Hall Table-Bird's Eye Maple & Cherry

    For starters my dad bought several pieces of this bird's eye maple about 10 years ago. He bought it because it was on sale and got it for about half the price it goes for now. He bought it with no project in mind and just hung into it. Well I got tired of shewing it just sitting there so I...
  3. Chunky Slab-Lid Boxes

    These were the second pair of boxes I have made this year (at least before the snow fell). They are made of walnut with bird's eye maple slab lids. The keys are actually dovetail keys made with some leftover bird's-eye maple. Once again, my joinery is improving but getting better. Finished in...

    I have always wanted to try one of these boxes , however due to costs and time i decided to skip the inlay and secret compartments , i plan to build two more though. The panel is veneered birdseye maple , i have done some veneer work before but the fragility of the birds eye surprised me. I...

    Made a bathroom cabinet out of wormy barn board elm and maple. Soft close drawer slides and drawers, finger joints in drawers, lap joints in doors and drawer fronts, and a counter top with several different species. A vessel sink will be sitting in the middle once it is installed.
  6. Couple of small boxes

    Here are a couple boxes I made with some scrap in the shop, the first is birds eye maple with walnut, and the smaller box is curly maple and walnut. Despite their small size they weren't without their challenges. You'll notice the birds eye box has a lovely walnut bottom, that's what happens...
  7. Maple Writing Desk

    A couple of months before Christmas last year my daughter (who lives in a different State)sent me a link to a picture of a desk she really liked asking what I thought and if it was a good price. I've since lost the link, but the desk had a modern flair to it and it was somewhere around $2300...
  8. Pizza cutting boards from cutoffs

    My wife requested that I make some round cutting boards for cutting pizza's after they come out of the oven. We transfer the whole pizzas to these boards from the metal pizza pan. These boards are easier on the pizza knife. The first board is made of a cutoff of birds eye maple and roasted...

    I built about 2 years ago a crib (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/348770) for my newborn son and we unfortunately had to evict him from his crib because a little sister is about to move in. So to ease the transition I build him a BBB Big Boy Bed. Woods are birds eye maple and walnut, finish is...
  10. My first cane

    A little while ago, my mother asked me to make her a cane. She has a bad knee and when walking any distance she usually uses a walker. But it's not always practical or necessary to have the walker, so she wanted a cane just to take some weight off when walking short distance. I don't have a...
  11. Knock Kneed - Hall table made of maple and mahogany

    I was asked to build a hall table for my MIL that is similar to the others I have done, two of which were published in the April?May issue of Canadian Woodworking & Home Improvement Magazine. This table had some specific requirements: The top was to be bird's eye maple, and the base from...

    Recipe box for 4"x6" index cards. Top is birds eye, sides walnut, front/back leftover zebra wood. I used the ibox for the box joints.
  13. Carving Chisel Chest

    This project was born from a couple of needs. I've begun carving, mostly picture frames for my artist/wife, so I've been acquiring carving chisels. At first, I'd keep them rolled up in a leather tool roll but seems as if 3 out of 10 times one would fall out and hit that concrete floor-edge...

  16. Full Size Maple/Cherry Bedframe

    A full size bedframe made for my youngest daughter. The frame is Soft Maple along with resawn 8/4 cherry in the headboard. There is quite a bit of curl in the cherry, as the photos don't do it justice. Also the footboard has some curl in the maple as well. It was finished with a Mohawk vinyl...
  17. Segmented Steering Wheel

    I love a new challenge and when my co-worker asked for help to build a steering wheel for his amazing VW but "shorty" build I couldn't resist We took the original steering wheel hub, welded a "VW" shape arms, segmented birds eyes maple and walnut layers, embedded LEDs and clear acrylic in the...
  18. Cedar lined chest of Cherry & Bird's Eye Maple

    I finished this one a couple years ago. It may seem like this is a long time to get the project posted, but it took me 4 1/2 years to complete the build. So at least my pace is consistent :) Here are the build pics. I had just enough cherry for this project. Took a bit of time to lay out all...
  19. Pens

    Some stocking stuffers. Cocoblo, maple with some spotty birds eye, one with a Celtic knot and deer antler. The middle cocobolo pen was turned end grain just for a different look. the deer antler pens are from antlers that were found by a hard wood ridge, or some people say what the forest gave...
  20. Small Gift Boxes

    These are some small gift boxes I made up for a silent auction. One is walnut with zebrawood, the other is birch with birdseye maple. They only raised about $50 for the auction, but it was still a worthwile little project.
