  1. Brazilian cherry and Vineyard green granite top hall table

    This is a table I made from Brazilian cherry also known as jotoba wood, ( think I spelled that right) with a vineyard green granite top from India. Finished in ongoing coats of polyurethane I spray on, up to 10 right now, will do another 5 at least. Took bending and forming 7 legs to get 4 that...
  2. Two more cutting boards

    These cutting boards are identical and were a LOT more complicated than any previous ones. The woods are: White Limba, Purpleheart, Black Cherry, and Brazilian Cherry. They were made for my Mother-in-Law and my wife's aunt for last Xmas. They LOVED them! Thanks for looking and as always, all...
  3. Jatoba ( AKA Brazilian Cherry ) jewelry box

    This is a commission piece done by my shop partner Jim ( AKA RamMan ) all in jatoba. The drawers are 1/8" stock into 1/16" rabbets and dados. The main box is 1/4" stock. There are over 75 (we lost count) wooden pieces. There is no metal in the structure except a pair of pin hinges and the magnet...
  4. What to do with offcuts?

    When I resaw with my TK blade I get these thin offcuts. My friend uses then as fodder for his thinness sander and then makes scale furniture from it. He uses a model makers 4" Proxxon Bench Saw blade with a 1/16" kerf. For those that claim accuracy & repeatability do not matter and laugh at...
  5. Oak and Jatoba Lift Lid Box

    I just got into woodworking this year and have really enjoyed learning more about tools, wood, and what happens when the two come together. Over the months, I've acquired a number of tools from estate sales and craigslist and a good amount of wood cutoffs and scraps from local cabinet makers, as...
  6. Treadle sewing machine repurposed

    My mother was left an old Singer treadle sewing machine table many years ago by my grandma. My daughter always loved it, even in its rough shape, so my mother gave it to her. Of course that means dad has a new project. The top was way beyond repair and my daughter liked the idea of using it as a...
  7. Sailboat Box

    Sailboat Box. Brazilian Cherry with maple splines; sailboat has maple sails, walnut hull and mast. The sides have a convex curve and the top is hinged with hidden pins. Approx. 5.5×8 inches. Poly finish. (Made this one especially for the Minnesota Marine Art Museum, Winona, MN)
  8. Lathe Tool Cabinet

    I have been thinking about this cabinet for over 5 years. I used recycled Clear Vertical Grain Fir from an old school cabinet that was on it's way to the dump before I snagged it. The knobs for the doors and drawers are turned (of course) from Brazilian Cherry.
  9. Cutting Boards I FINALLY Finished, plus a new Peppermill

    I started these two boards over a year ago but didn't have or have access to a drum sander so they just sat. I finally took them to my son-in-laws dads shop and we used his. Itook the wife with me so the seed is planted to get one. I LOVE that tool. The first is a mixture of end cut...
  10. Lid for Old Glass Jar - Brazilian Cherry & Alaskan Yellow Cedar

    This is a lid that I turned for an old glass jar. The lid was first laminated out of Brazilian Cherry and Alaskan Yellow Cedar. Then it was turned, and the metal lid was glued inside (the wood top is basically just a cover for the tin lid). Very quick & easy project, that turned out pretty neat!
  11. Refinish 2200 ft2 Brazilian Cherry Hardwood Floor

    I divided this project into three sections, tackling each in sequence. Dividing the floor into three sections made the whole thing more manageable. I worked on this on 6 weekends, some evenings, and some mornings, over a span of two months. The project included a foyer, a living room, a...
  12. New Knife Block

    With limited drawer space I have always had to have a knife block. Had a fairly standard one on the counter but didn't like the amount of space it took up. My kitchen also has the old electrical panel (all wiring passes through it so I can't get rid of it) being all ugly on the wall. Came up...
  13. 4th Anniversery Music Box

    This kind of counts as a bandsawn box. The body is Brazilian Cherry and was glued up from 1 long board. After the initial jointing and gluing the hing locations where marked which set the size of the sides. After marking the thickness I went to the bandsaw and cut 1/2 inch off the bottom and...

  16. Help I Need Ideas

    I made this cane a year ago after knee surgery. It has worked well. The handle is a Disston, copied from a 100 year old rip hand saw I have. I've always liked its grip hence why I copied it. My problem is I couldn't come up with ideas to finish it out. Do I incise cuts like the Disston handle...
  17. Endgrain Butcherblock Cutting Board

    This is an end grain, butcher block cutting board, measuring approximately 14" x 16" x 2" thick. The board is made from Rock Maple, Walnut and Brazilian Cherry in a checker board pattern, with cherry accents. This particular board includes a juice moat on the top, and a decorative cutout on the...
  18. My first cane

    A little while ago, my mother asked me to make her a cane. She has a bad knee and when walking any distance she usually uses a walker. But it's not always practical or necessary to have the walker, so she wanted a cane just to take some weight off when walking short distance. I don't have a...
  19. Pair of Mallets from leftovers

    From the chairs that I turned into stools (my previous project) I ripped and cut the wood for future use, so now I used them to make two mallets that I was in need of, because I was using just a piece of pine as a mallet. Now I have decent ones. They are from Brazilian Cherry, possibly not the...
