  1. Stickley Style Chest

    This is a Stickley style chest made of quarter sawn white oak. For the finish, I fumed the parts with 30% ammonia prior to assembly. After assembly, I used one coat of shellac, glaze, then two more coats of shellac, then wax. Knot holes were filled with copper and epoxy. I made the hand...
  2. Laboratory Cabinets

    I'm in the process of building a lab in my basement for doing custom metal etch work. My plan is to make this my career (quit my day job) within about a year. When complete, the lab will consist of 3 parts - An etch resist application area, a prototype etch area (which is this post), and a...
  3. Jewelry Box by a first timer

    I got the woodworking bug a couple of months ago (first post here), so this should be called the $3000.00 Jewelry box since I'm sure I've spent that much in the past couple of months on tools! It's my wife's birthday so I thought I'd make her a Jewelry box, sounds easy enough. (Not!) I'm an...
  4. Spalted Maple Abstract

    I usually create woodspirits and walkingsticks, but I had a log of spalted maple from last year where most of the wood was punky. This abstract is what was left of the solid wood. It was inlaid with copper, some of which I finished with a patina. Also inlaid some small copper domes I made and...

  6. Copper Patina Garden Gate

    The garden gate is installed and the old fence boards recycled. I ran the old fence through the planer and applied a coat of penetrating oil. I also applied a patina to the handle. I used a patina kit from Osh (see blog) and wasn't satisfied with the finish so I sprayed on a couple of...
  7. Distiller's Mallets

    Made a mallet for a friend that works at a distillery. It's for pounding the bungs into the barrels. (Plus, if you are making something simple, and have enough scraps, why not make two?) Made from tight grain oak scraps and copper wedges. Signature Montana quarter. Head is 2 3/4" x 3" x 4...

    Details: Cherry with jatoba plugs. Approximately 14"x4"x9". Danish oil finish with dark paste wax. I've been wanting to build this for a while now and while perusing some older woodworking magazines, I found what I was looking for. The Nov. 2010 issue of "Wood" magazine had plans for a version...
  10. The last of the box binge, quilted maple

    I went on a bit of a bender making these boxes the last few weeks! While waiting for something to dry (usually the finish), I'd begin cutting parts for another one. A viscious circle! Slight changes from before. The basics Dimensions (interior) are 6" x 8" x 2-3/4", wood is 1/2". Frame/panel...
  11. Black Oak Burl Custom Fly Fishing Net w/Kingman Turquoise & Copper Inlay by Sierra Nets

    I have been on hiatus from here since the spring. Apologies. A lot has happened both good(lots of fishing) & not so good(My dear mother passed), but I am still heavily engaged in the sport. The custom net biz has been quite good, and my backlog remains out into 2014. I feel mighty blessed...

  14. Craftsman Pendulum Clock

    This is my 1st commissioned piece. I made a total of 5 (plus 1 that's a bit different for a family member). Every board in the clock is QSWO, most of it with fantastic grain patterns. Trying to stay true to the work of the early 1900s, I don't try to make the grain "pop" as many LJers do...
  15. Retro Wall Clock

    The basics About 10" square by 1-1/2" thick. The center box is about 7-1/2" square. Woods are (inside to outside) lacewood, purple heart, walnut, and white oak. The hour marks are copper rod stubs with a patina from ammonia. I ammonia fumed the outer white oak box in a 5-gallon bucket with...
  16. The "Crazy & Busy" Clocks

    It is called the "Busy" clock because the spousal unit said it looked "busy" when I showed it to her 8^) I'll post it on LJs, that'll learn her! Anyhow, these two clocks are the result of experimentation. I still have a half dozen or so clock motors from bulk purchases (I saved money right?)...

    Spring Lotus is a sea shell from Morroco that was cut and put into 2 part expoxy. Fall side is copper over copper with leafs between. The copper has acid patina and transtint dye in shellac over the top of all. Just a great day in the shop. Finished this and the pens, bracelets and the seam...
  18. Spalted Walnut Bowl

    I got this piece of (slightly) spalted walnut, recently and turned it into a 10 1/2 inch shallow bowl. I gave it a textured rim (textured with a dremel carving bit), and added a bit of gilt cream to give it a bit of a copper-look. Not the most exciting project on here, but I was really pleased...
