  1. Chess/Checker board

    This is a board I made for my parents as a Christmas present. I made this instead of a cutting board. I still need to finish sanding and staining.
  2. Large Checkerboard Box

    Previously I had made a small checkerboard box with curved sides and cover. I recently received a commission to make a much larger box (15" x 9 1/2" x 8") in a similar style. The larger box was a challenge to make, but I'm happy with the final results. Materials are black walnut and maple. Roger

  4. Second Checkerboard box

    This is a box I finished a few weeks back. I meant to post it as a project, but only posted it as a blog entry. My wife wanted to give my last checkerboard box as a gift. So I made her this one. It is made of padauk and walnut burl. There is an inlay of cherry as well. I finished it with...
  5. checkerboard

    My first attempt at a checkerboard. Maple and walnut. 2"x2" squares. Box dimensions roughly 2 1/2" x 16". I added a 4" recess on 2 sides to get a hold of the top. Top just sits in the rabbeted box sides. Splines add strength and a little detail to the mitered corners of the box. I finished the...

  7. Trivet with Checkerboard Pattern

    My wife asked me to make her a trivet to be placed on our dining room table… so I did! The size is 34-1/4×7-1/2×9/16 and is made out of Mahogany and Maple Ambrosia. I applied 5 coats of General Finishes High Performance PolyAcrylic with 320 and 400 grit sanding in between coats. I also used...
  8. first post first cutting board

    This is the first project I've ever posted for anything I've made. My daughter asked me to make her a cutting board for her birthday. Had never made one before, but seemed pretty easy. I used walnut and ambrosia maple, end grains. I liked the marbling of the ambrosia and it was the only...
  9. Checkerboard for Father's Day

    My Grandfather mentioned a while back how much he enjoys playing checkers with all his buddies at the Vetrans' center and has been teaching his great-grandkids how to play. So, I decided for Father's day this year, I'd make him a checkerboard. I didn't have as much time as I would have liked...
  10. Checkerboard

    Well this is one of the many Christmas presents i have been working on. I finally got this one done. My grandma is a big game player so i figured i would build her a special checkerboard set. I try to use cherry and red oak in my first attempt but the contrast wasn't enough. I ended up using...
  11. Zippers

    I think the three columns look like the teeth of a zipper… Anyhow, I had nothing on the schedule this past Friday, so I hit the lumber yard after work and decided to make myself something. Dimensionally, it's roughly 19" x 19" x 2" (second picture uses me as the size reference… it's fairly...
  12. Endgrain Cutting Board for Our Kitchen

    I made this cuttingboard from purpleheart and maple. It is endgrain cut with five coats of salad bowl finish applied to it. This was the first cutting board I tried, it was a lot of fun and I have had numerous requests to build them for others.
  13. Walnut Game Table

    I made this for a friend who found a similar table on the internet. (Google "geekchick") He and his wife and mom did most of the hand-sanding. I designed this from available photos and, I believe, made a few design improvements. It is designed to serve as a game table with a depressed vault...
  14. Sunburst Locust topped checkerboard

    These are made from some Sunburst Locust I have been working with lately, and the base/drawer is made from beetlekill pine. The pieces are glass beads and instead of stacking the piece for a king, simply swap it out for one of two additional "king colors". The black squares are stained with...
  15. Sawing a Sewing box

    Happy birthday Ine!! I made this sewing box for my daughter Inés´ birthday. Hope she´ll like it as I did during the construction. As a matter of fact, I started a mass production of sewing boxes, and taking advantage of the saw & router t setting, I cut 2 of these sewing boxes. The second one...

  17. Quadis Chess Table

    This was a chess table I made for my design studio last year. It could be said this is my first major woodworking project that required skill and joinery (previous projects are from when i was a kid and include a bike ramp and a garden planter box, both made from cheap plywood and a handsaw to...
  18. Checkerboard

    This started out as just a personal something that I wanted to do using some walnut I had laying around and some Maple. The leg design started out as a lamp stand/table that i made with Oak, but i liked the way it looked so I used it here. I gave it away today, so it looks like I'm going to have...
  19. 2x4 Checkerboard

    This checkerboard was my entry in our local club's Tubafore (2s4) contest. It didn't win a prize, but I did have fun making it, and it should be fun for some of my great grandkids. I first planed off the radius edges from the 2×4, then cut it in half, and glued the two halves together before...
  20. Colonial Hutch - Revisited

    When first I saw that my dear brother Don had posted the hutch that I had made in my youth, I was thrilled. (See "Colonial Hutch" in Projects, posted a few days ago). Unfortunately, I jumped to the erroneous conclusion that he was preparing to return it to me after some forty-three years of...
