  2. Blanket Chest in Cedar and Black Walnut

    I built this blanket chest for my new nephew out of black walnut and lined the inside with aromatic cedar. This is my first frame and panel design as well as my first project with bookmatching. The top is also bookmatched from a single slab.

    Description: I built this chest for Hope Rising, a charity that helps local non-profits in the D.C. region. At Celebrate Hope, their annual fund raising event, they auction off donated items from local businesses and individuals. I decided to make this chest, because I thought it fit right in...
  4. Ambrosia Maple Wine Racks & Cheese Boards

    This is my first post at Lumber Jocks. It seemed like all the woodworking questions I typed into Google brought me here and I have spent the last couple weeks since I joined admiring the work that people post on the site. With Mother's Day around the corner, I decided to make these racks and...
  5. Demilune Tables - Part One

    I love working with veneer! The possibilities are endless, and the material is relatively easy to work with. One project I make often is Hall or Demilune tables. Photo one is a table I gave to a client. Unfortunately, I didn't bother to get a better shot of it, as it's pretty nice. This one is...
  6. 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...
  7. Not what my nephew wanted for Christmas

    My brother texted me a picture about a month ago of an ax that my nephew wanted me to make for him. Being the nice uncle that I am, I decided that I would not make him the ax. I made him one far better, with a shield. The last picture is the ax he wanted. The one that I made is the other two...

    This is my 1st attempt at bookmatching for a table top that is to match the larger table with the italian marble top. The table is made of Texas Ash and finished with tung oil. Top is 15" by 15" and it stands 2' tall. Table was mostly made from leftovers from the larger tables mistakes. You...

    I am looking for the Elevating Shaft and Gear Assembly s-01-01593 for the Powr Kraft Radial Arm Saw TPC 2610. The gear that raises and lowers the arm is missing teeth. The previous owner did not unlock the arm before turning the crank. Any clues where I can get this part? Contact…...
  10. Woodworking Skill Share
    The incident happened a little more than a month ago. The bruising has cleared up and I only have one small scab left. It is a little embarrassing that it happened in the first place, but more upsetting that I still can't figure out how it happened. It is my practice to always stop to consider...

    I really want to know what you think about this! I just completed a video that shows How to Flatten Veneer using hot aluminum plates. This really is an amazing technique! I am very impressed by how well it works. My friend Tom Schrunk showed me this technique and he was nice enough to...

  13. 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...
  14. Wood & Lumber
    I need help with a veneer project. I'm making a box and want to have the top be quad bookmatched (if that's the right term - i.e., each 90 degree quadrant is a pattern-matched piece of veneer). I'm using chestnut burl, and the problem is that it is very wavy/curly. I've done the veneer...
