  2. $20 Poker Table

    Found this oval shaped wood table at a garage sale for $10, it was a bit rough but I really liked the base. It was painted this super ugly pastel color, so rather than spending about 80 hours trying to sand the paint off so I could stain the legs I just roughed up the legs a bit and used a...
  3. Federal Game Table

    Here's a Federal period (ca. 1810 or thereabouts) game table I just completed. Basic side table with my own design elements, including the veneer, inlay, and the folding leaves. There's a slide show on my website showing the steps involved, if anyone is...
  4. Zoey's Box

    A couple months back my mother called me up and said "Remember that redwood box you made me, well Zoey was playing with it and…" and my heart stopped. First thing through my mind was that my five year old niece, Zoey, had broken the first box I was really proud of and a gift to my mother...

    This Sunday is Fathers Day here in Australia and a friend wanted to give her husband a "Man Box"... [ever since she saw the first one I made… she has been wanting one for him.].

  7. Black Powder Pistol Stand

    This is version two of a black powder pistol stand I created for my 1858 New Army replica. My Girlfriend bought an 1851 Navy replica and it was about 1/8" shorter where it counted. Between the grip and the hammer. Black Powder Pistols are loaded by hand. With two hands you've got to half-cock...
  8. Two Drawer Band Saw Box in Poplar and Pine

    December, 2010 - This is two pieces of pine glued between three pieces of poplar, with walnut handles. This is the first time I have done a band saw box with an open bottom. I was inspired to try this after seeing something similar from another "lumber jock." This is sanded to 220 and has...
  9. Convertible gaming table

    Built this dining/gaming table for a customer recently. 84×48", ash base, cherry top with inlay. Felt in gaming recess, tv mount in gaming recess. Didn't get great pictures, but should have more coming of the table being used for gaming on their next game night. It was a lot of fun to build!
  10. MLCS fancy box

    About 4 years ago, I bought 2 new router bits from MLCS to make fancy decorative boxes. I also bought a Merlin steel clamp with the kit. I have used the Merlin clamp many times…...........but I forgot to try out the box making bits. So, I decided to try them out. Since there are 3 new router...

  13. First try at a chess board and set

    I was making a lot of end grain cutting boards for some friends and family for Christmas this year. Some of them had checker like patterns on them, and people started asking if I also made chess boards. I had never actually tried to make a chess board, so I decided to give it a stab just to...

  15. Live Oak Band Saw Box

    November, 2010-This wood is a glue-up of prunings from the live oak tree in my front yard. The wood is hard, but easy to cut on the band saw with a sharp blade. I use a 3/16ths Carter blade with the Carter stabilizer. On this box I tried to make the left and right sides the same radius, as...

    Another going away box but this one turned out to be my favorite so far. Zebrawood, black walnut, and African Blackwood for the splines and border. Finished with 3 coats spray laquer and 5 coats wax. Thanks for looking.
  17. Needlepoint Box

    I live in a townhouse complex of 64 units and my garage is my workshop, so when I'm working in there I usually have the big overhead door open. Naturally, when my neighbors walk by, they usually stop in to see what I'm making at that time. Well, one of my neighbors (a senior lady) told me that...
  18. Simple bandsaw boxes

    Over a year ago I posted a bandsaw box project in which I said it was the first of a set of four bandsaw boxes that I did at the same time, assembly-line style. I finally finished the last two yesterday. My problem was handles. I didn't know of a way to make them look good made out of wood...
  19. Red Oak Box with Hidden Secret Compartment

    This little box has a secret, compartment that is… I lined the bottom of the box with scrap wood (1 and a half inches tall). Then I covered another piece of scrap wood with red felt. The felt covers the piece that lays over the scrap wood, creating a false bottom. I did not put scrap wood on one...
