  1. 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...
  2. Japanese Style Storage Cabinet

    This piece was built for a couple that lived in Japan for a while and said that they had several pieces of Japanese furniture at their home up north. They gave me some basic dimensions (48" wide, 44" tall, 18" deep), picked cypress as for the wood and specified that they would be using this to...
  3. Live edge bath caddy

    I made this as a Christmas gift for my wife. Made from a bookmatched set of walnut slabs right off my own property I had milled a few years ago. Simple, but a neat looking addition to the bathtub and useful for holding a phone or tablet…and of course a glass of wine.
  4. "For Frank"

    I was very lucky this summer to have toured Frank Llyod Wright's Taliesin in Spring Green, Wisconsin. The house and property are absolutely breathtaking. While on the tour of the main house I noticed a very unique box sitting on one of the tables and asked the tour guide about it. She said it...
  5. Koa and Ebony Presentation Board

    Made of Hawaiian Koa and Gaboon Ebony, this presentation board was made for my sister-in-law who had bought me the Koa on a trip to Hawaii. I held on to the wood for over 10 years waiting for the right project at the right time…this was it. The back is engraved with the following Hawaiian...
  6. Arched Sides Cutting Board

  8. Wall Cabinet Doors

    I'm working on completing a wall cabinet which I started a couple of years ago (this is a common theme in my woodworking). This week's progress has been mostly the doors. The frames of the doors are maple, as are the case parts, while the panels in the doors are book matched walnut. This is...
  9. Red Cedar slab swing with sunflower design

    Another Christmas order turned out really nice. Customer choose to put on the finish herself and save a few dollars. Fine with me, that is one job I am not fond of. The words and sunflower are done with the router.
  10. Built in cabinet - AllWoodJoinery

    My journey has come to an important milestone. Cabinetry… but without a single drop of glue or any metal fastener - not even hinges. Exclusively out of wood. But why am I doing this? I've shared my story and my concept in my bed post: The usual slideshow about the build: It has quite some...

  13. 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...
  14. Contemporary Matched End Tables

    These end tables were made at the request of my wife, and I'm glad she did. I have been saving a piece of 4/4 beeswing mahogany lumber for just this project. Cut into veneer and book matched they fit just perfectly for these tops. They are made from 4/4 mahogany except for the drawer. The face...
  15. 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...

  17. 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?
