  1. Maple side table

    I was commisioned to build this table by a coworker. He asked for a table that he could take out onto his small balcony to enjoy a coffee. It had to be the same height as his dining table (so he could use on of the chairs) and small enough to fit through the narrow balcony door (20"). It is...
  2. Big Leaf Maple Dish

    Big Leaf Maple plate that I turned for Christmas present. Had to re-turn it this week after a accidentally let it hop off my lathe and fly across the shop, leaving a few dents. Luckily I made it thick or it probably would have borken in half. Turned out better the next go round. There is one...
  3. Australian/USA Keepsake Box

    With this box the main thing I had in mind was to use woods that are indigenous to the USA and Australia. The reason is that this box was to be a gift for one of my sisters. This one happens to live in Australia with her family. Her husband was born and raised in Australia, and I wanted this...
  4. Birdseye display Case

    Hey LJs, This is a display case I've been working on for about a week (on and off). It's made from Birdseye Hard Maple, some Curly Hard Maple for the trim molding, and some unique ingrown bark Hard Maple for the back panel. I used the Freud glass panel bit set for the door, what a awesome set...
  5. The Wavy Box

    I stumbled upon this design by accident when I was messing around with a pine box I had built last year, I thought I'd try it out with some birdseye maple and walnut. One advantage is it gets rid of the tear out I experienced when thickness planing. I'm pretty happy with the result.

  7. Set of three boxes

    This set of three matching boxes is made from red oak and birdseye maple. The phoenix carving was done for me by my neighbour with his cnc router. All three boxes have BLO & Poly finish. I stained the oak on the small box, but I didn't want the stain to bleed into the maple dovetail splines...
  8. Serving Tray (Wedding Gift)

    I am flying to L.A. in the morning for my old college roommate's wedding. I have to admit this project was somewhat last minute. I knocked it out in an afternoon so I could layer on a few coats of wipe-on poly and wax before leaving. The bottom is solid Birdseye Maple. I am not really sure what...
  9. Birdseye Maple table slab, Inlaid with Turquoise

    This was a gorgeous little slab of Birdseye Maple….It naturally had several voids, which I decided to fill with Turquoise. I think the colors compliment eachother exceptionally well. I placed this slab on an Ash Juniper Root base…Really nice combination! It is unfinished in the photos, I just...

    This is a Rob Cosman inspired wood hinge box using walnut and birdseye maple. 8.75×5x4 inches. I made the 1/4 in dowel using a home made jig utilizing wood leftover from the top so it would match up really well. Three pieces are glued to the back and two are glued to the top. There is a 1/16...

  13. Music Box - 5 Year Anniversary

    The traditional gift theme for your 5th anniversary is wood - how perfect for a woodworker! The bottom of the box, which provides the resonance for the sound, is 1/8" thick cherry with two 1/8" thick cherry runners that create a dado. The dado is supposed to provide better base tones. The...
  14. Walnut & Birdseye Maple Entry Bench

    The frame is walnut while the panel is veneered birdseye maple, and the legs are attached to the rails with sliding dovetails. Learning quite a lot with this project, first time I've done sliding dovetails. These were made using a pretty standard shopbuilt mortising jig (that I built for this...
  15. Walnut and Birdseye Mallet

    After watching Roy Underhill mortise out a mallet in 20 min on his "Big Ash Mallet" I decided to give it a try. I had some scrap 8/4 walnut and a cutoff of some Birdseye maple just perfect for a handle. I cut the mallet to what seemed like a good size and mortised out the wedge shape mortise...

  17. Bathroom Cabinet in Wenge and Birdseye Maple

    I call this cabinet "Stop yelling at me!". I'll bet you can figure out why. My wife wanted a medicine cabinet for our master ensuite bathroom. This is what I came up with. Made of all solid wenge with shop cut birdseye maple veneer panel in the door. Back panel is plain maple and wenge strips...

    This is just another cutting / cheese board made from figured African mahogany and Birdseye Maple. it is 11" x 11" and about5/8" thick. I laminated the boards after cutting to length and running through the joiner. I used titebond 3 for its water resistance and clamped and glued it for several...

    This is a flame birch box with a birds-eye maple top. The ribbon handle is a combination of cherry with Quina as the outside lamination, and was wrapped and recessed into the box sides. Quina was also used for the corner points. A majority of the wood is from Maine, except of course for the...
