  1. Business card holder

    This business card holder made from oak, cherry and walnut is made from leftover pieces of a custom picture frame I built. This idea came from the other business card holders on Lumberjocks - just a quick miter cut, add some glue and the project was finished in no time. - Thanks for looking

  3. bathroom vanity

    A self designed vanity. I designed this for a line of bathroom cabinetry I tried to market. The line did not take off; however, this style has become popular with the nautical crowd. A smaller version of this went into a Russian oligarch's yacht. The windows are actually made with mdf bezels...

  6. Grape Press

    My neighbor brought me this grape press that had been in a fire. I wish I had taken a before picture of it in tack but I didn't. He promised me wine if I made it usable. I had a week before the grapes were ready. I tried cutting the compound angles on my table saw and 12" sliding miter saw...
  7. Rustic business card holder

    This was the toughest project I've ever had. Actually my daughter was walking around near my wood spot and saw a small chunk of log and said "daddy, lets make something with this". I sawed it in half and then made the slots for the business cards. I followed the grain on the right one, and...

  12. Grandfather's Nantucket Basket

    My grandfather (mother's side) began building Nantucket baskets in retirement, which eventually grew to him selling them in art galleries on Cape Cod.

  15. Maple butcher block cutting board

    I got tired of our tired and busted cutting board, and wanted an end grain maple butcher block cutting board, but was abashed at the cost of a good one. So I decided to try and make one. I couldn't find any two by maple, only 1×2, which caused a little more work then I thought when I first...
