  1. 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...
  2. Walnut, live edge end table

    I posted a blog about the process on this one. Saved from a firewood pile (walnuts just too good to burn).
  3. Glowing River Redwood Slab Coffee Table

    I just finished and delivered this coffee table this morning. I built it for my school's annual fundraiser dinner and auction. I teach 7th/8th grade Language Arts at a great little charter middle school called River Middle School (Thus the river in the table). The last couple years they have...
  4. Post office box coin bank.

    I made this coin bank to look like a street corner mail box. I made it using the brass PO box door and 3/8" oak. Quick and simple project finished with spray on Poly.
  5. Wave Sculpture #3

    Wave Sculpture #3 is another example of a CNC wall carving I have designed that attempts to capture the wave motion so often found in nature. The Red Grandis Eucalyptus wood I used in creating this sculpture was hand chosen for its color and grain. The carving is approximately 8" x 8" and...
  6. A glowing logo sign

    A friend of mine asked me to make a wooden sign of his logo for his company. The logo is a sardius stone. I made the outline out of Walnut, and the "faces" of the stone in colored epoxy resin. i used a CNC to cut the strips because of all of the odd angles that needed to be perfect. Its about...
  7. Turned Wood Slice Vase

    This is a vase I made on my lathe. The body of the vase is made of mesquite and epoxy resin with a coffee ground filler in the resin. The top rim is mahogany with an accent stripe below that of hard maple. The vase is 11" in height and 9 1/2" in diameter. The wall thickness is approximately...
  8. Moxon Vise Benchtop Bench

    Hello my friends !, after finishing this work, I present here my project of a Moxon Vise Benchtop Bench. It was built using only hand tools at all steps. The entire project was documented with specific details, in three entries here in my blog with explanations and pictures, and in turn these...
  9. Spalted Ambrosia Maple Chalice

    The wood came from a maple in my neighborhood (the community owns about 10 acres of woods surrounding the development). I stabilized the spalted areas with low viscosity quick epoxy as much as I could when they were uncovered during the turning. It's sanded to 600 grit on the outside and 400...
  10. Magnetic Beer Tote

    Not the most original thing in the world but here's my take on a beer tote… Had some lightly figured maple and a bunch of aromatic cedar in the shop, so I figured I'd give one of these a try. Didn't have plans so I marked things out by using beers from the fridge. Sides are maple, bottom and...
  11. Dodgers Bobblehead Bat Shelf with Epoxy Inlay

    My brother-in-law Brett is a huge Dodgers fan and has been collecting bobblehead figures given out at games he's gone to over the past couple years. The bobbleheads had been sitting on top of a bookcase, and I figured they needed a proper home, so I made this shelf as a Christmas gift. I was...
  12. Cantilevered Display Table

    This is a small table design I have been working on for the last couple years. I really like the floating top theme and I wanted to try and take it alittle further. The two lower legs as well as the upright leg are laminated with fiberglass tape at the joints which helps to make the legs...
  13. Reloading bench

    This is a reloading bench that I made for my brother. The top is a double thickness of 3/4" MDF glued & screwed together. the doors hide drawers built of 3/4" birch plywood with 1/2" bottoms (shells are heavy). One door hides 2 pull-out trays, for storing flats of 12 gauge shells. We both...
  14. Spalted elm & walnut salt & pepper shakers

    When I cut the corners off my shop stool, I had a couple triangular pieces left over. One of them became a butter dish (I'll be posting that soon), and that in turn had some cut-offs. Some of those cut-offs turned into this pair of salt and pepper shakers. I drilled a 5/8" hole in the center of...
  15. Cuban Mahogany Trumpet Bowl

    Taken from a tree blown down in a storm several years back. 11" diameter rim. Epoxy finish.
  16. Koa wood Wave

    Video here: I got a piece of koa wood as a present and it was pretty enough to frame- but far to thick. I ripped this piece off with a combination of hand and power tools, then make a sunset from paduk and a frame out of curly maple. The blue areas are a mix of epoxy and pearl pigment
  17. Clear Epoxy - Used Shell, Dovetailed Box

    I recently got married, this is a box that I made as a gift for my best man. After it was complete I filled it with some ammo. I saw some other projects on here that encased items in clear epoxy resin, there was a table with beer caps that impressed me in particular...

    There s alot of birds in my area and once in a while, during the morning I usualy see a few in my backyard looking for food, while the cat's asleep.

    This is a food tower, made for my dog to eat food at a higher level. Food towers are not recommended for animals who eat or drink very fast, or are otherwise prone to bloating. my dog eats very slow, and seems to prefer the added height. Made of walnut and maple scraps
