  1. Finishing
    I am in the process of making a colonial Tavern pipe box similar to the picture that is below. I want to make it out of curly maple and would like to try to duplicate the color and pop that is shown in the attached picture of the dresser drawers. I am looking for something that is fairly simple...
  2. Underwater World

    Hello all, it's been awhile since I posted a project because of my broken hand and then playing catch up to get some projects done. This one took AWHILE to finish because it was 341 pieces and a lot of them where very small. I spent a lot of time down on my hands and knees looking for a piece...
  3. Keepsake box with unique "wood pattern"

    This keepsake box was a commisioned item that I thought turned out kind of neat. It is Ziricote with Curly Maple for the top, lift and keys. I really liked the "lightning bolt" spalting design that was in the middle. You can even still see the little worm hole ! Dimensions are: 9×4 x 3 and...
  4. Curly Maple & Zebrawood Jewelry Box

    I posted this one because it is the first time I used Curly Maple and Zebrawood together like this and I really like it. Also because I thought the grain in the piece of Curly Maple really "popped". Dimensions: 12×8 x 4 Finished again with multiple coats of Watco danish oil and Black Bison wax.
  5. A "Palm Box.... with a curve"

    Well….. here is my version of Andy's "Palm Box", I just threw a little curve into it. Did it kind of simple…... Walnut & Curly Maple finished with Danish Oil and Black Bison Wax. Only other thing I did different, ( probably an overkill ), but I put hidden splines in at the butt joints, and did...
  6. A First Bowl

    I was given a very old Central Machinery lathe recently, and this is my first attempt at making a bowl. It's a simple and light design, and I'm quite happy with it as a first go. I didn't have any plan going into it, and just designed it freehand. It's curly spalted maple that I milled myself...

    My first humidor completed and many thanks to Douglas, Tom and Caver for their tips and advice, much appreciated! This is obviousley Curly Maple with Sapele for the lift and keys. Lined throughout with Spanish Cedar. The top lining is integrated with the top of the box and also the bottom...
  8. Find a Home for an Intarsia Carousel Horse Wall Hanging

    I really had some fun making this piece and it was a real challenge. I saw a picture on the internet and made a pattern based on that with Inkskape. It ended up having 190 different pieces with 13 different kinds of woods. The pole was a real challenge to make out of a block of yellow heart...
  9. 31" Jointer plane with fence.

    So I had a blast making the plane for the swap. During so, i was modeling a jointer. I knew i had to make it for myself. Here is the culmination of 2 months roughly on off work. Curly quartersawn maple for the center, mahogany stripes (these were needed to create a big enough space for the...
  10. Plant Stand -- Curly Maple and Quilted Maple

    I made 5 plant stands for Christmas gits in 2005. The plan is from Barry Black in the April 2005 issue of Popular Woodworking. This was one of the more challenging projects I have done, but very rewarding. Two of the stands have a cherry base and curly maple top and shelf. Two of the stand...

    I made this serving tray/drink tray for a fundraiser that we are having tonight for my wife, Lisa. She will be walking in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure, in San Diego, in the middle of November. It is a 3-day walk that spans 60-miles (20-miles/day). She has participated in the Susan...
  12. Curly Maple Picture Frames

    Howdy, These poor paintings were just hanging on the wall and suffering from my poor attempt at carpentry a couple of years ago. I had to do something about it. The frames are curly maple dyed with antique maple tint. I used water to mix the dye. Even though I raised the grain and sanded...
  13. Anejo Humidor

    Curly Maple, Bubgina edging and key splines The bottom key spline is deliberately unevenly spaced from the other two to give the case a feeling of vertical action and a somewhat lighter feel. The name "Anejo Humidor" denotes that this particular humidor (one of several I have made, including a...
  14. Mallet made for WoodWorkJosh (Surprise Swap)

    I made this mallet for WoodWorkJosh as part of the Winter 2017 Tool Swap. The woods used were maple and purple heart and the handle is walnut. The maple is from an air dried slab my father had in his garage that was at least 20 years and I was pleasantly surprised with the figure in the grain...

  16. "My Tell-Tale Heart"

    "My Tell-Tale Heart" box series was designed and created to celebrate my younger brother's wedding. Right from the start I knew I wanted to make them a special box. They got married on Halloween which was a big influence on the design. Taken from one the most famous pieces of gothic...
  17. For My Girlfriend

    My girlfriend and I went to Orlando and stopped to look at some wood for the cutting board and wine butler I made for a wedding gift. She really liked this piece of cocobolo so we picked it up so I could make some out of it. I had a piece of bubinga and some curly maple so I decided as the...
  18. Chechen and Curly Maple

    This box started as just a basic chechen box. For the lid I started with a really pretty piece of curly maple which I picture framed with chechen. I then laminated a piece of oak to the curly maple for added thickness and stability. The lid was then banded with birdseye maple. I debated...
  19. Bedside stand number two

    Here's a nightstand I made a few months ago for my oldest daughter. She picked a design she liked off of a google images search and picked the color and I went from there. The carcass is made of some birch ply I had left over from some shop cabinets I made. The top was made from some curly-ish...
