  1. Beautiful segmented goblet

    My second goblet, and my first segmented piece. Simple design and a captive ring set loose by my skew chisel. Could anybody identify the darker wood for me?
  2. More segmented goblets

    A couple more of my segmented goblets. The darker wood is mahogany and the lighter wood i'm not so sure, maybe spotted gum. Watch my youtube video of how to make these goblets at;
  3. Mallet for My Daughter

    This is a mallet I made for my daughter, it is made from oak and a piece of blockboard for a little contrast. I consider this my best mallet to date. I finished it with boiled linseed oil and then added a topcoat or two of 50/50 clear Shellac and denatured alcohol. The handle shape is a little...
  4. Aftermarket blade guard for my tablesaw

    I bought this old saw used and refurbished it. Had no guard, and I can't even figure out a model number or find any spare parts. So the over-arm seems like the only solution. For a light-duty user like me, this unit from PSI seems pretty nifty. It adjusts every direction you can think of, and...
  5. Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair Recliner

    This is my Morris Chair. It is made from pine that I got for free from a friend of a friend's old bookshelf. When I got the wood some of it was badly warped, there were a few screw holes in a bunch of places that I had to plug, and it was discolored from years of use so I pre-sanded everything...
  6. Redemption bowl

    This bowl constitutes the psychic redemption of a failed bowl I attempted some years ago. More pictures here I set about making a cocobolo hollow vessel a few years ago, intending it for a gift for some friends. I worked myself into a corner, and realized I had bitten off more than I could...
  7. More Bentwood Rings

    It's been a little while since I last posted pictures of wooden rings, so here's an update. These are some of the more recent wood combinations I've been experimenting with. There are so many possibilities with these things! :) Hawaiian Koa (shimmer feature) ring with offset Ziricote inlay...
  8. Entry Bench

    I got the idea for this bench from the following site: http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2014/08/diy-upholstered-bench.html The only thing I did differently from that site is the top of the bench which I made from 2×4's. Everything is pine. I purchased the legs from Osborne Wood. I've never...
  9. Gun Cabinet with Hidden Compartment (also amazing birds eye maple veneer)

    This was my first commissioning for a furniture piece. The proud parents of a college graduate wanted to give their son something that would last. First of all, I have to give credit to fellow LJ'er Jonathan Szczepanski as I used his Hope Chest design as my inspiration. The project...
  10. Kitchen Cabinets

    These are my kitchen cabinets. I really like dark/light contrast in wood working and decided to theme my kitchen cabinets aroung that. I built them about 12 years ago and have been very happy about how the glue ups have held. I had two doors that twisted a little bit but I was able to recut...

  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    As a furniture and cabinet maker my shop is full of alder,hickory,maple,oak,and poplar. My only problem; not a lot of contrast as far as color goes. I've got a few projects in mind that would require some more unique colors. Were can i buy exotic lumber online. I'd like to be able to order small...
  13. Woodcarving
    Hi Guys I attended a one day relief carving class yesterday which was pretty good and I carved a leaf into a piece of lime wood I believe it's maybe called bas / bass wood in North America. Here is a picture of my efforts yesterday: I know it's really messy looking given it was my very...
  14. Wood & Lumber
    I'm in the process of making my 16 yo daughter a makeup vanity for Christmas w some exceptionally nice black walnut slabs I've had on hand foe some time. They feature heavy purple & gray tones so the choice when looking through my inventory of slabs for the primary wood to use was an easy one...
  15. Joinery
    This is the backbone of my Floating Shelf Stereo Stand. It is walnut, the shelves are going to be red oak and slid into the slots. I'm trying to build it without metal fasteners. I have created a channel to hide the cables by "laminating" three sections of walnut. I don't want to rely on glue to...
  16. Wood & Lumber
    Hey guys, I have been trying to move towards buying lumber locally from sawmills and such. My local large hardwood supplier isn't cheap, and it often affects the feasibility of doing projects. I live in Fort Worth, TX so we have a decent amount trees around, but not a ton, like in many other...
