  1. Balvenie (Scotch) Cabinet

    This is a project I have worked on for way too long, (Work and Football season have really taken their toll). In my continuing quest for better hand cut dovetails and building small cabinets, i built this out of Flame Birch and Peruvian Walnut. I purchased the Birch with no project in mind, but...
  2. Wifes Tea Box with my first hand cut dovetails

    This is my first small box made with hand cut dove tails, I definitely need some practice. The sides are figured Maple, the lid frame is Walnut and the top and bottom panel is Birds Eye Maple. My goal was to use only hand tools but I ended up re-sawing the stock to expedite the project in time...
  3. Tool box

    I saw this in a magazine and wanted to make it for my step son, he told me he would rather make it with me so we made two. This is mine, I am trying it as a box to hold my carving tool. This is the first time I tried hand cut tails and I learned a lot. We had a great time making them. Hand...
  4. Opa's Box

    Quick update on a box I made this weekend that was a direct knockoff of from Sean over at Simply Cove on Youtube - great woodworker and awesome content for those looking for another online woodworker to follow. That said, proportions etc. were completely different vs. his on this one. I did...
  5. Oak and Walnut Dovetailed Box for Katy

    This was for my sister Katy for her birthday and is my first box with my new Veritas 14 tpi dovetail saw. I was able to cut much smaller and tighter dovetails than on my other boxes. I was also using my newly made 1:7 dovetail marker. So far, I've done all my dovetails by eye but I needed...
  6. Just a box with hand cut dovetails

    This was a piece of firewood that i held back for 10 years it laid in my shop. I finally had a need for making a small tool box for my chainsaw tools. This was on a whim of a design and i only had one block of wood to make the whole project. I have used some Walnut as stretchers and trim to get...
  7. Cherry and Maple Half Blind Dovetail Box

    This box started life as practice for half blind dovetails for a drawer in a different project. It was my first time doing half blinds but all four sets turned out great so I went on to the actual drawer. The practice box sat around my shop until the day before our family Christmas get together...
  8. Red Oak Hand Dovetailed Box

    I built this box just to kill time in the shop. There was no one in mind and no real plan going in. It's red oak with a walnut handle. The dovetails are hand cut and so are the grooves for the bottom and the groove on the lid that the walnut handle fits into. All the stock was dimensioned by...
  9. Tracey's Wedding Box - It's Italian

    Tracey had a destination wedding - the whole family went to Tuscany to see her and Galen tie the knot. So I wanted to make a jewelry box for her that reflected "Italy". So what does one do to reflect "Italy"? Then I started looking at tourist places for the trip and it occurred to me that the...
  10. Maple Table

    As I said in my first blog, I'm hooked on woodworking now and one of my first projects was this maple table top I made for my wife's hall table. It's from a tree I cut down myself and had milled by a friend from work. Practicing with my bisquit jointer, planet and router, I'm happy how it turned...
  11. Small beech and walnut box - a present for my physiotherapist

    A beech and walnut small box built as a thank you present for my physiotherapist without whom my elbow would remain in a state. Finish is one coat of danish oil followed by three of satin varnish. I'm quite pleased with the way that the dove tails have turned out on this one. The cut away base...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am currently looking for a Woodtek flap sander owner to test a product I recently invented and have a patent pending on to align the brushes and flaps prior to reassembly of the flap sander head. It was built and designed for the Grizzly model and the Woodtek model looks nearly identical...

    Hand cut Dove Tails, take 2 While everyone else at my house was napping yesterday I gave hand cut dove tails another try. This was my 2nd attempt. They aren't the good, but they aren't the worse I've seen. http://woodchucksworkshop.blogspot.com/2012/03/hand-cut-dove-tails-take-2.html
  14. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Hi there! I am a single mother of (almost) 9 year old son and daughter twins and I am hoping someone out there will know someone that might offer classes. I took a woodworking class in school when I was their age and it was a fantastic experience I would like my children to share. I am not...
  15. Hand Tools
    My wife's family has an amazing Norwegian "cabin" ( I use that term loosely) that was built in the early '50's on an island off the coast of Maine. It is quite a magical place filled with carving very where, a sod roof and lots of antiques. One of the pieces I've always admired is a trunk that...
