  1. "Blur"

    If you saw my last project you would understand this one a bit more. I am hooked on the process of turning old hood ornaments into sculptural pieces…of course some of them naturally are. I call this piece "Blur" and it uses a 1959-64 Nash Rambler hood ornament. The process starts by making a...
  2. Sjoelbak anyone? (Dutch shuffleboard)

    This was a project that I have wanted to build for a long time, and I finally got around to it. I promised the family it would be done by Christmas, and what do ya know! It's done a month early! For those of you not familiar with Dutch shuffleboard, it's a very fun and addictive game. Each...
  3. Birdseye Maple And Walnut Box - 2018 Spring Box Swap

    This was my entry for the 2018 Spring Box Swap where members who signed up would build a box and exchange it with some other participant who's name was drawn at random. This box is made with 1/2" Walnut sides, a veneered quilted Birdseye Maple lid insert, and African Padauk corner posts. It...
  4. Bookshelf Speakers- Zaph Audio ZMV5

    My second pair of speakers. These are based on the Zaph Audio design. (for plans see www.zaphaudio.com/ZMV5.html) I was going for the best sound I could get in a sub $200 pair of speakers. These easily blow away speakers at 2-3 times the price. I modified the boxes from Zaph's design to curve...
  5. 3 Bud Vase from Wood Magazine

    Just finished this as a birthday gift. The design caught my eye so I thought I'd give it a go. Haven't build anything from plans before so it was a good learning experience. The woods are birdseye maple and walnut. The vases are from Target (harder to find than I thought). The magazine...
  6. Art Deco Fire Screen

    Just made this fire screen for a friend who has an art deco style living room, same place the table and cabinet I just made went to. Its veneered in Bubinga and Birdseye Maple with some Wenge inlay. The feet are made of solid Bubinga. Its finished in lemon shellac to match the table colour I...
  7. Birdseye Maple and Mahogany Computer Case

    This was a computer that I built for my parents for Christmas. It's relatively low powered hardware, and is used to run Plex so they can use it to record and watch TV shows. The front and top birdseye maple pieces have continuous grain around the corner, and the bottom platform is from...
  8. Jewelry Box #2

    Ok so this is the second jewelry box I have made. This was made for my girlfriend, the sunshine in my life. Started in May, ended in October.. (2012) I learned alot from my first attempt and decided to go both bigger and plan out a better look. (last one seemed to have very odd dimensions)...
  9. Birdseye Maple Rocker Complete

    This project is a very special one for me and today was a momentous day for me when I put the first coat of finish on it. This is a Christmas present for my Dad and uses wood we collected from the land around his childhood home. We visited a small mill in the woods owned by a friend of my...
  10. 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...
  11. AV credenza

    Hi everyone, I just finished a credenza to host all AV equipment below the TV and hide the gazillion cables. The box is made of bubinga with variable space box joints I cut for the fist time on the CNC. The doors are birds eye maple and carved on the CNC as well. The process was very smooth, I...
  12. Birdseye Maple Picture Frame

    Inlays are walnut. It's a picture of my 30' sloop "Pickle" :)
  13. "Intake"

    I get many design ideas from objects we are surrounded by. One thing I have always been drawn to is automotive design and mainly different air intakes. They usually flow so beautifully with the lines of the vehicle….be it hood intakes, side intakes, roof intakes, etc. The "Intake" box design...
  14. Art Deco Design Table

    Just finished this art deco style table for a friend who loves that style. Its veneered in Birdseye Maple and has a Wenge inlay on the edge of the top and base. I finished it in Shellac and then lacquer.
  15. "Talon"

    It's hard to even pick a starting point to talk about "Talon". It is a commissioned box for a very patient gentleman. When starting a box I ask questions about colors, interests, what is it holding, etc. This was designed to be a men's jewelry box. The answer given to the interests question...

    Made of Birdseye and Makka

    Wanna know the coolest thing about this piece? My boss gave me the chunk of wood two weeks ago when I was out in California! The spout is ebony and the piece is finished with General Finishes Seal-a-cell and Arm-R-Seal.. Even better, he also gave me a nice chunk of old growth Redwood he said...
