  1. fireman ruler

    another growth chart ruler done, this one they requested something firefighter themed (my friend who commissioned it, her husband is a firefighter). My wife found a fire fighter decal that I really liked, so I scrolled it out of paduak with plans of just inlaying that into a red alder ruler...
  2. another ruler for "WHO"

    finished another growth chart, really fell in love with this one. Went more overboard on the carving because I was having too much fun, planning on reusing that carving or similar carving in another project because I liked it so much. My wife found this unique cherry board, actually looks more...
  3. Child's Wall-Mounted Growth Ruler

    Wall-mounted height ruler for my girlfriend's niece. The wood is maple, stained yellow and sealed with shellac. The lettering and details are woodburned. The edges were rounded over with router. Thanks for your interest in my projects.
  4. Child's height chart

    This project has been in the works for a few months now. I wanted to make a removable wooden height chart that I could take with us if we ever moved. The race was on to finish it before my son was old enough to use it! The chart is made of maple with walnut inlays. The maple board is 6'2"...

  7. The start of a bad habit

    Pintrest, we all know that name and it affects us all differently. Some, browse through looking for ideas, others like myself have ideas given to them through additions of the honeydew list. No matter the source when we all hear the name spoken we expect the sky to darken and lightning to...
  8. growth chart #2

    One of the nurses at the hospital asked me to make her a growth ruler for her (she was pregnant at the time). I had already made one basic ruler so I wanted to spice it up a little. Out of a spare red alder board I beveled the sides, and inlaid some rosy quartz and malachite flowers on the top...
  9. Growth chart #4

    Another growth chart for a friend, since he only had one child left at home that was still growing he wanted his initials on it, so I grabbed a curly maple board, inlaid his initials with malachite and obsidian, and inlaid all the numbers with fumed curly eucalyptus veneer.
  10. Growth chart #6 Game of thrones themed

    Another growth chart I made for one of my co-workers who was a HUGE game of thrones fan. Ruler was made out of ribbon striped sapele, inlaid a paduak plaque into the board and transferred ink with a quote that he picked out from game of thrones (never actually watched it myself), I guess in...
  11. Growth chart #3

    If you read a few of my project post ago you may of been left confused when I said the start of a bad habit, well this is the start of the escalation of these growth charts and probably the one that started their popularity in the hospital. I made this out of a leftover cherry board from my...
  12. Honduras Mahogany Scrap bowl

    Honduras Mahogany Scrap bowl Triangular scraps glued together with a piece of maple inbetween. Blank was then cut apart and re-glued with more mahogany and maple veneer to get the contrast. Finished with salad bowl finish (not shown).
  13. Growth chart #7

    Another growth chart done, this one was a little simpler. Started with a pine board and once the numbers were carved down and the writing was carved I stained it with tea and hit it with vinegar and steel wool to age it. It turned a nasty grey that I didn't like much so I sanded it back so it...
  14. Growth chart #8 phoenix and Griffin

    Another growth ruler finished, had a request for a ruler with a irish tree of life, and if possible a phoenix and griffin added since the boys who this ruler is for is named Phoenix and Griffin. Found a gorgeous pomele sapele and marbled walnut boards, wanted to save the sapele but it was...
  15. Child's height chart #2

    Apparently I never uploaded this project - it was probably completed around September 2015. In the style of my first height board, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/81491 , I completed another chart for my son. Click the link for full measurement and build details, as the process was essentially...
  16. Another growth chart

    My cousin brought over a large trash bag old redwood planks wondering if I can find use for them (this was expecially thoughtful because he lives 3 hours away and was driving tough town to see his parents and didn't have to think about me) so since he and his wife just had a child and apparently...

    I thought I remember seeing a link somewhere for Imperial and Metric charts for pre-drill sizes depending on what size screws you were going to use. Anybody remember seeing this or know where to find one? Thanks!

    How often do you start a project and half way through, the light comes on and you redesign and salvage a project that may have ended up in woodstove? Today was one of those days for me, I started a box that a friend wanted for a valintine present and he had a few ideas of how he wanted it, so...
