  5. Keepsake Box, Maple & Walnut

    Another box from the book, "Box-Making Basics" by David Freedman. I liked this box from the first moment I saw it but it took me a while to feel comfortable with my level of box-making to tackle it. The body is maple and the top is a nicely figured walnut which you really can't see from the...

  11. Angled Suite | Custom

    This is a bed that was built a long time ago. It is from the kids furniture. I started with the storage bed headboard and designed everything else from there. The angle concept of the headboard was transferred to the chest and desk pedestal. If I remember correctly, the customer choose the...
  12. Custom Fancy Cane #053: (Extra Large) Manzanita Burl & Black Walnut

    The client wanted a fancy wood version of a cane she currently uses that has a very fat handle that projects a good 7 inches. I tried to match the length and girth of the old cane handle and then proceeded to add more to the size for strength and style. She wanted to place the entire width of...

  16. Tool Cabinet

    Just finished my latest tool cabinet. I am fairly new to hand tools, and I set out to cut all of the joinery for this cabinet with hand tools. I found the cherry for the carcass to be very unforgiving when cutting through dovetails by hand, so I switched to box joints on the table saw for the...
  17. Teddy Bear Silhouette

    I found an old water bed frame on the curb on trash day, remember how the frames where massive wood 2x? for rails and head board but they weigh nothing! I decided I needed to build an articulating teddy bear, so I did. The arms and legs are set on 3/8" dowels and glued at the body so the arms...
  18. Knife scales - Madagascar (black & white) ebony

    I made some new knife scales for a friend, using book matched pieces of Madagascar (black & white) ebony. Also cleaned up the blade and sharpened it well beyond what any reasonable use would require. Because I love wood, and I love sharp stuff, too. The scales are bookmatched, so the pattern...
