  1. Cherry Sideboard

    I built this cherry sideboard for the entryway in my home, but it has since become our television stand and storage unit in the living room. It worked so well with the television that I modified the design and built several other units as entertainment centers, one as a wedding present for my...
  2. Chinaberry Bark Inclusion Bowl

    Here is another piece from the Chinaberry that I recently acquired. It is the same tree/wood that I turned the Chinaberry Live Edge Vase. I am very happy with the great color in this piece. I was hoping for some of the same crazy grain that the Chinaberry Live Edge Vase has but that blank was...
  3. Hackberry Three Footed Vessel

    This is a simple once turned closed top bowl and is another addition to my recent "Footed Vessel" series. This piece was a bit spontaneous and was somewhat quick to turn. I collected a few pieces of Hackberry in late June but set aside the blanks I cut and prepped from it. This was one of the...
  4. Grandma's cutting boards

    Grangy''s cutting board and cheese board. Walnut and Maple.
  5. Curly Maple Bowl

    This is my second bowl turning. The wood is curly cherry. Sanded the bowl progressively starting with a 120 grit and finishing with 400 grit. After the sanding I buffed the bowl with a lint free cotton rag. The finish is three coats of Maloof's poly/oil mix. I really like how the finish brings...
  6. "JEWEL" - Curly-maple and brass coffee table

    I'm a metal-worker at heart, and own a shop in Orangeville, Ontario Canada. Increasingly I'm lovin' the combination of wood and metal as a means of creating unique pieces. This one is a solid curly-maple top dyed with aniline dyes and finished with BLO, epoxy and finally buffed paste wax...
  7. Left Overs Tool Box

    Hello all, I have been wanting to build a tool tote for some time now for building and mounting projects, when I am in front of customers… I know, I have already one built out of pine which looks just about like the one littlecope posted under charlie1958s tool boxs' comment section. but I...

    This jewelry box is titled "Joliet" for Joliet, Illinois and is constructed from Maple and Purple Heart. All 12 edges are banded with hand cut Purple Heart. In addition, the the top is a parquet of 7/8" square Maple pieces that are aligned 90 degrees to each other with 1/8" Purple Heart banding...
  9. Woodworking Skill Share
    Okay, I'm a metal worker who's fallen in love with figured woods, most especially those showing chatoyance (shimmer, popping, ripplies, whatever). I've researched mightily, and found the following in my quest to make it something you can fall into, something that shifts and dazzles as you move...
  10. Finishing
    I'm looking for some finishing recommendations for a box I've made out of birdseye maple with padauk miter keys and accents. I made 2 boxes and finished the first with Danish oil after some meticulous finish scraping. I achieved some excellent chatoyance with the birdseye maple (and will...
  11. Blogs
    Fabrication, Assembly, and Finishing I cut all of the parts for the bases over the last couple of weeks, mortise and tenoned all of the rails and legs and rails, and assembled the bases. Each table used a custom jig for cutting the tapers on the table saw. My hope is to use these again for...
  12. Scrollsawing
    I was given a 16" Craftsman Scroll Saw by a lady in our church. It was her husbands, who passed away ten years ago. It's about 40 years old, cast iron frame and runs like a dream. I trued up the zero calibration on the bed, cleaned and oiled it and it's ready to mount on a stand (which I'll...
  13. Wood & Lumber
    I had a variety pack of wine bottle stopper blanks that I am using to make Shaving Brushes. In this pack was 'Figured Asian Satinwood'-which is actually not a satinwood but is called Pyinma. I had never heard of or seen this before but it was obviously curly and I wanted to see what it would...
