  1. Journal Replacement Chest of Drawers

    Time to add a back... Needed these two items...and a cleared off bench.. Somedays, I even need 2 benches. A bead of glue where ever the 1/4" plywood panel was going to fit into. 1" long screws to attach.. Framing square to show where the web frames will be...each get a screw in the...
  2. 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...
  3. Tool Cabinet

    I made this hand tool cabinet out of oak I found in the trash. The drawers are beech (from the trash), and the drawer fronts are butternut (I had a lot of this). My second time doing dovetails.
  4. Credenza sized Entertainment Center

    This mid century walnut entertainment center was designed by my son in law. I did the working drawings. It took about 4 weeks to build using solid walnut and walnut ply.
  5. Indestructible Dovetailed Shop Trays

    Instead of using plastic containers to gather small stuff around the shop and to free the countertops, I gathered few scraps and made those indestructible trays. Sliding dovetails secure the corners and the bottoms are glued and nailed 1/4" plywood and MDF (no grooves for shop trays). My...
  6. Small Coffee Table with semi-concealed draw

    I promised my 23 year old Son and his Partner this as a Christmas/Birthday present and will be delivering it today. It is figured Tasmanian Blackwood with Mackay Cedar legs. Mackay cedar is beautiful but deadly. I was warned but still suffered my first ever Asthma attack when first sanding the...
  7. Hanging Shelf

    I bought a valentines day gift for my wife that did not fit on our mantle. To correct my mistake, I built this hanging shelf that adds dimension and saved the day. The top is walnut and rest is spalded maple. Hand cut dovetails and two through mortises hold the shelf to the back. After sanding...
  8. Cherry Tool Cabinet

    This cabinet was designed around the Golden Mean, an early school project as practise in hand tools. The criteria was dovetails and tenons, all cut by hand. This piece fastens to the wall with a french cleat. I epoxied rare earth magnets into the cleat and veneered over them so most hand tools...
  9. Oak and Walnut Keepsake Box

    Oak and walnut box, hand cut dovetails in construction, with a walnut inlay.
  10. Two boxes using the Incra jig

    These are two small boxes made with the help of Incra's Ultra lite dovetail jig. I have been making lots of sawdust and only these two boxes remain. I've learned a lot and owe much of my learning progress to internet friends who guided me thru the process.
  11. Curly Maple Side Table

    A small curly maple table with a pull-out drawer built into the apron of the table. The drawer is done traditionally with half blind hand cut dovetails on the front and through dovetails on the back. The sides of the drawers are dadoed which create the slide with a matching strip mounted to the...
  12. Schrodingers Box - The Quantum Dovetails, A Wooden box of Uncertainty

    We all get caught up in things we can't control, and this was my catharsis from that. Inspired by Erwin Schrodinger's thought experiment involving a cat, radiation, and poison I built a box to contain my own uncertainties. I wanted to join it with something interesting, so I figured some 3...
  13. Reclaimed pallet material used in small box

    This is a prototype I built in 1999 for some simple boxes we gave away as gifts and sold at a craft store. This particular box has been storing my pen hardware in the shop, and the sides have not received as much exposure to light, so the cherry is darker on top and for some reason, the bottom...
  14. Another Simple Gift

    I have made a few of these napkin holders to give as gifts. This one is for my neighbor. My main shop is in my unheated garage, so a project like this allows me to do most of the work in my basement during the cold months of the year. It's a good way to practice cutting dovetails by hand and a...
  15. FIRST HALF-BLIND DOVETAILS

    I had some drawers to make, and they ended up being a few firsts for me: -First half-blind dovetails (hand-cut) -First traditionally constructed drawers (half-blind dovetails in front, full dovetails in back, drawer bottom in grooves in front and sides, sliding in under the back (see picture)...
  16. Wall Mounted Teabowl Display

    My first attempt at dovetails. I made this out of quartersawn oak with handcut dovetails. The finish is Old Masters dark walnut stain, and Old Masters oil-based brushing lacquer colored with a little 'amber-honey' Transtint dye.
  17. Walnut Jewelry Box

    This is a jewelry box I just finished for my mother. (I didn't get it done in time for Christmas) It is a walnut box with maple inlays. The flower inlay was done using scroll saw marquetry and the petals were shaded using hot sand to give it some depth. The square black border around the...
  18. Curly Maple & Onyx Coffee Table Top

    This table top is my first real commission for someone who is not a family member or a friend. He came up with the idea to inlay some large tiles, I sent him a drawing in Sketch up with the approximate dimensions, he ordered the onyx tile and we were off to the races. It replaces a simple glass...
  19. Jersey's Dog Bowl

    Jersey is my 6 month old chocolate lab who has grown big enough for an elevated bowl. Her older "sister" has a similar food and water stand made out of pine, but cherry matches some of my other work in the kitchen. The cherry for this project is left over stock from my kitchen table project...
  20. First Attempt at Handcut Through Dovetails

    I've been wanting to try out some of the more traditional joinery methods since I've been perusing this site daily and checking out more advanced skills here and elsewhere on the web. I've been reading a lot (and I mean a lot) about dovetails, box/finger joints, mortises & tenons, etc. online...
