  1. Jewellery box in cherry and walnut

    Yes, it's another box from that English bloke. I've pushed the boat out a bit with this one and fitted it with a quadrant hinge to hold the lid back and a lock. As stated, the main construction is in cherry with a walnut inset lid and plinth. The tray and interior dividers are mahogany from the...
  2. expanding/collapsable bowl

    I saw something like this that came from india and decided i had to try it. The bowl is 1 piece of wood mounted onto the bottom plate. It is a long spiral cut on a 2 degree angle so that as the bolw goes up it locks into itself. As you lift the handle, it acts as a lever to expand the bowl.
  3. Expanding Trivets

I found a base for the table online that I liked and reproduced with a few changes. The finish woods are Mahogany and Mahogany veneers. All sub framing is white...
  7. Farm Table

    This was my first big project - our dining room table. #2 pine and tung oil stain. Nothing fancy, but perfect for our place. Walnut pegs into a stub-tongue tenon into the breaboard end. Mortise and tenon with those oak dowel pegs in the skirt - probably should have stuck with the square peg...
  8. Woodworking Skill Share
    So I've been an avid woodworker all my life but for some reason I have only recently seen my first Fletcher automated expanding table. After watching the youtube video of one of their tables in action over and over about a million times, I am still completely mesmerized by the engineering...
