  1. Chesapeake Bay Retriever intarsia memorial

    Here's my latest intarsia project which has special meaning to me and more to my wife. She became very attached to our Chesapeake Bay Retrievers; Cocoa and Pebbles. The last of the two passed away earlier this year so I wanted to make a gift for her to bring back warm memories of Pebbles. I...
  2. Jewelry Box..part 2

    Cumaru Jewelry Box. The walnut box was a hit, and another client wanted something special for his best girl. so I made him one out of Cumaru (Brazilian Teak) with hickory splines, lines, and leaf veins. The box is approx. 12 by 8 inches and the tray and compartments are of hickory. The lining...
  3. Deck

    We finished this deck a couple years ago. It's made of cumaru or Brazilian teak. A little hint if you decide to use cumaru decking, put it down fast. We got ours a few weeks before we were ready for it and a lot of it warped, making it a real headache to put into place. A few board warped so...

    Commission for a friend who lost her father. A modernist cumaru and padauk urn finished with oil and wax. The padauk strip in the center is a spline joining top and bottom. Grain is continuous on 3 corners, though it's hard to tell with the cumaru. Final size is about 11.25" tall including feet...
  6. Keychains for Lovers

    Two names are carved in one of the 19+ fine woods I stock, Minitag style, and then pressure bonded atop each other. The woods pictured are (in order) Cocobolo, Cumaru, Maple and Red Oak. Other woods to follow. The ♥ is carved adjacent to the name that I feel will balance the piece, and is...
  7. Pergola, Shed and an Extra

    It's been quite a while since I posted a project here on LJs. It's not that I wasn't working on anything. Just the opposite. It was a long Summer of getting things done in and around the house and a good portion of it was dedicated to renovating the yard. The hardscape that was put down in...

  9. Tealight Candle Holder

    This is a simple and inexpensive Tealight Candle Holder that can be completed in about an hour's worth of time. It's made from Red Cumaru, also known as Brazilian Teak. I purchased a 16-pack of tealight candles at the dollar store and used a 1-3/8" Forstner bit for a perfect fit. Click here...
  10. Highlights of the Past Couple Weeks

    I have been adding woods to my arsenal. Pic #1 - Madrone Burl ~ Just received today. Smells like cotton candy (to me) when cutting it. Beautiful, cloudlike grain. Pic #2 - Pau Amarello (Yellowheart) with an inlaid Paduak heart. Experimenting… Pic #3 - Purpleheart and Mesquite. The purpleheart...
  11. Ribbons box

    You all know that sometimes, a project has to be for our better half. I got tired of seeing her scrapbooking ribbons all over the place and decided to do something about it. Made from leftovers of cumaru that were used to build a staircase. The lid on top lifts to access the top dowel. The...
  12. the cutting edge

    I have a buddy with a knife collection for which I designed a display box. If he liked the box, I could only believe that he would like a knife to add to it. So, luckily he has a birthday every year and this cumaru handled baby was under his cake. It could have been used to slice that cake as...
  13. all that glitters need not be gold

    When in Ny last I saw a woman's pendant made out of laminated woods. This i can do too I thinks to myself(and at less than the 40 buck ticket at that) I laminated some and sliced in such ways that each one was different, and gave em all away. i then found some site selling ear wires and the...

    I saw somthing like this in a store ($125) and i thought i could approach it in essence. i year or so ago, i hadn't located my supplies of exotic hardwoods, but had a few pieces and plenty of veneers. So I laminated the veneers together to form a solid looking section and i was off to the...

  17. Fokker Dr1 - World War I airplane

    Ever since my Amiga days, I loved the Cinemaware game "Wings". A facination of World War I airplanes was born. This is my first finer woodworking project, and Im quite pleased with the result, to be honest. The plane is built to scale of the original german Fokker Dr1, but adjusted to be more...
  18. Cumaru Deck (or a woodworker scales up)

    Replaced a rotting 30 year old deck with a smaller new one made out of Cumaru. Cumaru is a Brazilian hardwood similar to Ipe, but with a more inconsistent grain pattern and color. In my area it is half the price, though, so I went for it. Pressure treated structure. Stainless hardware...
