  1. Reclaimed douglas fir Table

    This table was built from reclaimed Douglas fir beams from an old torn down grain elevator up here in Alberta, Canada. The beams were massive 20"x20" by 18 feet. Luckily when I showed up, to pick them up, a portable saw mill was on-site and cut them into manageable sizes for me, however, the...
  2. Double bookmatched cutting board

    Here are my latest cutting boards. Pics 1,2,3,&4 are what I call a double bookmatched board. Final dimensions are 14"x20"x2". It was made by assembling a bookmatched board with dimension of 7"x20"x4" then cutting it in half to do the second bookmaching. I have been playing around with this...

  4. Boxguy Takes The Rorschach Test

    Story: On a farm nearby a friend was cutting down the remains of a 200 year old maple tree that had reached the end of its days. Time and decay had done in its last remaining live branch. I noticed a large burl on the side of the tree and asked my friend if I could have it. With a roar, he...
  5. Carved Walnut Desk

    I did this 100% black walnut desk a long time ago, about 1992. As you can see, I was trying to break the mold of flat surfaces and add some 'movement' to the design. I shouldn't say this, but I 'hand carved' it with a router. You can guess I learned to hold that 3 hp router damn tight (but I...

This is my first attempt at a table of this style and my first attempt at bow ties. I started this...
  10. Book matched entry way table

    This is a table that I just finished up. It was from one single 9" thick piece of wood that was pulled out of a fire pile at a slab mill in NC that I picked some maple at. I set up a router sled to flatten the two side of the log. Then I cut the piece down the center with my chainsaw and hit...
  11. Tea caddy in burr oak

    'Veneered' can mean different things to different people depending on your point of view/experience. It can mean 'fake' - an attempt to fool the buyer/observer into thinking that a piece is made from a more expensive/pretty timber than it actually is. But it also allows the maker to use far...
  12. Nasty Vase

    This is a piece of wood given to me by a friend at work. It was fire wood. I kind of think it should have stayed fire wood. hahaha Most of you know, I work with some UGLY wood. I like a challenge and the character that comes from holey knotty wormy wood. This is the driest, most cracked...
  13. Indian Rosewood (dalbergia sissou)

    Dalbergia sissou is indigenous to India. It was introduced to Florida in the early 1900s and has flourished. It has been used as ornamental and shade trees since then. The wood has a beautiful golden brown color with dark contrasting lines. It is a perfect wood for musical instruments...
  14. Flute case - for a flute played standing on one leg ...

    I've made quite a lot of flute cases for some quite famous flute players - but then, how many flute players have most people heard of? I made this case for the favourite flute - a beautiful Verne Q Powell wooden Boehm system - belonging to a certain famous rock flautist that I guess most will...
  15. Walnut Bar Stools

    This was a project commissioned by my wife. I enjoy getting this type of project as it allows me time to design and get in the shop. The initial prototype was made of cardboard. Once the design and overall dimensions were given the OK, I batched out both stools together. The second one was...
  16. Cutting and Serving Boards

    These cutting boards were made from salvaged pallet wood, mostly maple with some cherry accents. They are all finished with mineral oil and then food grade wax. This was my first experience with book matched woodworking. Because the initial wood was not dimensional, I got extra practice in...
  17. Arts and Crafts Bookcase

    This is an arts and crafts bookcase that I built from a Woodcraft project plan. I used sapele and it turned out great. The top is book matched. The finish is 5 coats of shellac and a clear wood filler.
  18. Jigs & Fixtures
    I am not sure I should post this as it really looks dangerous but awareness of the dangers is what allows to mitigate them ! I need to resaw a 3/4" by 11" by 63" board and I didn't trust i could do this on the bandsaw with any kind of success. By putting 2 beams on the bed of the sawmill and a...
  19. Finishing
    Well, the subject doesn't say much, my question (absolute newbie) is: When you make something that will have a side that is not visible, how do you finish that part? I'm talking of something like the downside of a tabletop, or the steps of a saircase. Thanks a lot
  20. Wood & Lumber
    Hey guys, I'm looking for a source for high grade quarter-sawn sitka spruce or cypress. I need pretty decent thickness (4/4 after surfacing) and it would be great if there was a place willing to book-match and surface to that dimension since I don't have a bandsaw. Other things I need are...
