  1. Shaker Wall Cupboard with a twist!

    My interpretation of a Shaker Wall Cupboard and with a twist. I've been working on this "Gift" (and a bit late) Jewelry Armoire for over a year with the design kickin around in my head for years. I got called back into action to do a couple kitchen rehabs this year with custom cabinets and this...
  2. Handful of Shop-Made Tools

    This last week, I made a handful of homemade shop tools. Starting at the the top left and going clockwise: a marking gauge [walnut], a couple magnetic dovetail saw guides (1:8 and 1:6) [cherry and oak], and a 90 degree magnetic saw guide [walnut and oak].
  3. R. O. S. Ossuary (Commissioned)

    Made of quarter sawn bubinga throughout, it was the wishes of the young man's parents (22 years old) to have an unadorned, dovetailed cube to hold his cremains. Box is made so that the lid is sealed airtight, but can be removed with a bit of trouble should the family need to access the ashes...
  4. Marking Gauge Dovetail Practise Box

    Hi guys, Nothing too special. I am still trying to get proficient at hand cutting dovetails so make opportunities to keep cutting them. This box was more dovetail practise - I just decided I may as well build a box while I was at it to hold my marking gauges - there is a spot reserved in the...
  5. Picture Frame - Dovetails

    I have had this old painting that was owned by my Oma and Opa, it was painted by a local artist in Hudson, OH. His name is on it and on the back, Al Koenig. I did look him up and he's since past along with my grandparents. This painting is dated 1981. As with most grandparents, things around...
  6. Asymmetric Dovetails in Cedar Crate

    Here is another prototype of a bicycle basket/crate I am thinking about making for my etsy page. This one is different from the last in that its cedar and is smaller and the base is now held in with joinery rather than nails. The dimensions are now 10.2×13.875. The joinery is from a great...
  7. Chest for Heirloom Flatware

    We recently returned from visiting in-laws in Wisconsin and brought home some silver flatware that had been stored in side board. With anything sentimental it should be stored in some nice safe case. Made from red oak and walnut I dusted off my Keller Dovetail jig and proceeded to make a nice...
  8. Keepsake Boxes

    Here are 2 Keepsake Boxes I made for my son and daughter. My son's was made from Curly Maple/Walnut, and my daughters was done with Curly maple/Purpleheart. The dovetails are handcut, and the hinge for the lid was done with a maple dowel in the side of the box that when into the side of the...
  9. A pair of mallets

    Here is a pair of mallets I recently made. The first one is based off one made by Steve Ramsey, laminated from oak and maple, and through tenoned and double wedged with a walnut handle. It is really great for driving in dowels and persuading my joints. The second is made from a shaft of maple...
  10. Wine Cabinet

    I built this cabinet about 5 years ago. One of my favorite pieces. It's my own design, and at the time it was a bunch of "firsts" for me: Raised panel sides Arched doors with a brass "screen" 3/8" inset door Dovetailed base And I'm sure a bunch of stuff I've forgotten by now...
  11. Carving Chisel Chest

    This project was born from a couple of needs. I've begun carving, mostly picture frames for my artist/wife, so I've been acquiring carving chisels. At first, I'd keep them rolled up in a leather tool roll but seems as if 3 out of 10 times one would fall out and hit that concrete floor-edge...
  12. Quarter-Sawn Sycamore Dresser

    This project took me a while. I spent a lot of time debating on the color of the wood and the finish. I tried at least ten different combinations on test pieces. I used quarter-sawn sycamore for exterior and red oak on the non-visible pieces. It is solid wood construction except for the...
  13. Dress-up trunk for my grandaughter

    I made this out from pine panels as a dress-up trunk for my oldest grandaughter. It is my own design. We filled it with haloween costumes, old pagent dresses, etc.
  14. Tea Box

    Made from cherry, with maple inserts inside. Dovetailed corners.
  15. Kaili's Dresser

    I finally finished the dresser for my daughter. The majority of the wood is from the same tree as her crib. The design is my own, however I came across a strikingly similar design from Vermont Wood Studios after I had the design finished, so I guess it isn't all that unique, but they have some...
  16. cherry chest of drawers

    This is my masterpiece so far, it was a Christmas present for my wife. It is made of almost all solid cherry with poplar drawer parts as a secondary wood. The top is joined to the sides with hand cut through dovetails. The drawers feature hand cut half blinds at the front and through dovetails...
  17. Baby anarchists tool chest

    My version of Chris Schwarz's tool chest. I replicated certain aspects of it by just viewing others chests , the exact dimensions however are my own. It is made of pine and has a cedar panel for the lid. I made this chest around a year and half ago so my tools have been upgrades significantly...
  18. Shaker Table

    After much inspiration from the Woodwhisperer site, I decided to build the Shaker table. I found an article in pop-woodworking by Chris Schwarz with the same table. The table is really only my second real piece of furniture, and my first attempt at half-blind dovetails. Solid cherry and finished...
  19. dovetailed dustpan

    From this guide: https://www.popularwoodworking.com/article/dovetailed-dustpan-forget-plastic-or-metal-pans I don't know why plastic dustpans are so expensive and don't last at all. It's unnecessarily wasteful. So today's project was making a dustpan out of wood using hand tools. Poplar, pine...
  20. Chess Board and Table

    I have been working on this chess board for close to a year, on and off. By far the longest time was spent making the actual pieces. There are details and videos of a few on my blog . The sides of the board box are made of peruvian walnut. The profile was made using a cove cutting setup on...
