  1. Projects Knife Swap 2022 Project

    My entry for the Knife Swap consisted of a Draw Knife. I used O1 Tool Steel for the blade, cutting it with a angle grinder then shaping it over at the grinder. The Handles were turned from Maple, then made a jig to hold the handle to cut a kerf to hold the blade in place. The blade has a...
  2. Kimber 1911 Display Box

    My life long friend and colleague retired after 32 years of service with the Fire Department. Instead of a gold watch, we all pitched in and bought him a Kimber Custom 1911 45 cal handgun. He is a gun collector and has always like the quality of the Kimber. I was tasked with creating a display...
  3. Pistol Display Box

    Here's a display box I made for a friend. The outside is cherry and the interior is black walnut. I used black inlace (glorified colored bondo) for the Colt logo. The finish for the outside is Formby's tung oil w/ shellac and laquer on the walnut. The pistol is a Colt model 1903/08 hammerless...

  5. Small Maple and Padauk Box

    I have been ruminating over some ideas for small projects that would make good gifts. Additionally, I had never (until now) made small boxes (for jewelry, or displaying turned pens, etc.). This project and another box project are experiments in designs and techniques and also my first two...
  6. Glass Etched Display Box

    My girlfriend's grandma had asked if I could make her a box for her son's birthday. She wanted it to put cement hand prints of when he was born, so it definitely needed to have a glass top. I decided to go the extra mile on this one, which I think proved worthwhile. This was my first project...
  7. Large Cufflink Valet Box with Sliding Drawer | Solid Walnut and Birdseye Maple

    This box was made as a part of a matching set. The sister box stored 20 watches while this one is outfitted for the storage of a large cufflink collection. The top compartment houses a tapered lift out tray divided into 10 compartments of varying sizes. When the tray is removed a large...
  8. Cannon shell crate-styled wine display box

    Built this over the course of several years, but I dragged my feet, really only took a day and a half, and that was including a lotta beer breaks. :) I got the idea from a while back, someone else had done the idea before but it was a neat concept, to turn a military cannon shell box into a...
  9. New Pen Display/Transportation Chest

    One of the most time-consuming tasks at weekly markets and shows is setup and tear down. This is particularly true for pens that take time to place on a display individually. The goals over the hot summer months in Houston were to simplify our setup so that every item type was in its own box...
  10. Wall Hanging Display Box - Aston Martin Grill

    This was a custom job made to display a set of Aston Martin DB9 grills and logo badges. One is made from ash and finished in black using Solar Lux Jet Black dye and Old Masters Spanish Oak stain, top coated with several coats of General Finishes Arm-A-Seal satin. The second box is made of walnut...
  11. Tigerwood Etched Glass Display BOx

    I had a request for a birthday gift, for a woman who happens to be a geologist or geology major… Anyway, she wanted a display box to give her for her birthday to show off all different cool rocks she has found over the years in Oregon. Originally the designed box was much more basic, and as...
  12. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    I have not see a posting of a finished commission order so here goes. I have a (friend/customer) who gives me a nice order before Christmas every year. This year he requested two of the "I Have Secrets" boxes, eight all wood folding knives w/four of them made like a baseball bat and eight...
  13. Blogs
    Introductions Last spring, we had the pleasure of spending some time in Hawaii. I am not usually interested in collecting souvenirs. However, there was a store there called the Koa Store which had lots of items made from Koa, but also had a selection of Koa lumber. That got my interest! The...

  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm looking to buy my first drill press. I've searched through some old posts and seen plenty of the benchtop vs free standing discussion. Free standing would work great for me at the edge of my garage right now, but I could do benchtop too. I have some money saved up for shop tools, but since...
