  1. Backgammon Board

    Well I joined LUMBERjocks about a year ago, then I tried to make a project. Last year my project was to build my workshop, it takes me along time since I work full time I selected a Backgammon board, because I like the game. Since I had no plan or board of this size 30.5 by 22 inches the...

  5. Maple Box

    One of the guys I work with has a friend that went to Istanbul Turkey to teach English as a second language. He asked if I could make a simple little box to put some shells, beach sand, that sort of thing in it to send to her. This is what I made for him. It's a Birdseye maple box with a lift...
  6. Chechen and Curly Maple

    This box started as just a basic chechen box. For the lid I started with a really pretty piece of curly maple which I picture framed with chechen. I then laminated a piece of oak to the curly maple for added thickness and stability. The lid was then banded with birdseye maple. I debated...

  8. Bathroom Cabinet (my first cabinet)

    We are in the process of remodeling our bathroom and were looking at cabinets to replace the old 1960 cabinet that came with the house (see the last picture). But since there was nothing nice or the right size in our price range I thought, I'll just make one myself. So this is my first attempt...
  9. Ice Cream Scoop

    My wife had a favorite ice cream scoop that she lost about 3 months ago. When I was at Rockler I found a kit to make your own ice cream scoop. Since she loves Birdseye maple I used that for the handle. About 20 minutes after I gave it to her she found her old one. Anyone need an ice cream scoop?
  10. Mantle/shelf clock

    Originally, this clock was a wall mount my Dad made for my first wife and me way back in 1978. He always hated it because the tacks he used for the numbers weren't what he wanted and the color (kinda sorta what's still on the backside - Denver Broncos orange when he did it) really set him off...
  11. Fathers Day Box

    Here is my second box. This one I made for my Dad for Fathers Day last year. It was my first attempt at inlay, albeit pretty simple, but I think it came out pretty nice. Most importantly, my Dad loved it! The top is birdseye maple with purpleheart inlays and the casing is made of Brazilian...

  13. Jewelry Box

    I made this jewelry box for my Wife for Xmas last year as she had asked for one since her old one was getting too full (what a problem to have right? he he). She loves Canarywood and I just happened to have a really nice 8/4 piece that was about 50"-60" long in my shop. It was really a colorful...

  15. First Ever Inlay - Wooden Dog Pendants with Gorilla Glue

    I had no idea what I wanted to do for this challenge when I first heard about it. I just knew that I wanted to start participating more in the community so I'd feel more connected and less like a young person cut off from all the usual wild young person activities. I'm pretty new in general to...

  18. Birdseye and Curly Maple Entertainment Center

    This project started years ago when I got some "scrap" birdseye maple plywood from the cabinet/millwork shop I was working for. A customer covered the entire inside of their 10,000 square foot home in Aspen with sequenced matched birdseye maple ply(ceilings and all). All the windows in the...

    This is a variation of USAF Chevron Shadow Box I offer. Customer conatcted me and asked if I could make him a oak shadow box with walnut stain and birdseye maple stripes.
