  1. Faun Marionette

    This is my first post, so I apologize if it's rather amature. I carved him in a couple of months at university. He is the first thing I've ever carved so I made alot of mistakes, which I seem to have covered up well. To begin with I worked out the legs and arms in foam board, then make a mock...
  2. Original design - Superman wooden doll lamp/nightlight

    This Christmas, I decide to make an interesting and playful wooden lamp/nightlight for our offices secret Santa game. I have found some designs that look similar, but most of them are using the Edison globe with a long tail of power cable. However, because the recipientant have a young kid at...
  3. Crazily figured maple cutting board.

    I was poking around at the lumber yard a few weeks ago, and I found this weirdly figured board of maple. it wasn't terribly substantial, but I figured there was enough to chop up and make a ridiculous lookin' cutting board… so, that's what I did. I wanted to be more creative with the design...
  4. Mission Coffee Table

    Designed to compliment the Morris Chair built a few years back. Design on the fly with some nice QSWO that I had in my stock pile.
  5. 3-D Letter "K" Lightbox

    My wife has been asking "in earnest" for the past few months for me to make her a desk-sized likeness of the light-up letter "K" that the band "The Killers" use as a central prop in their stage show (Pic 3). A few weeks ago I ordered a string of 50 LED lights. When it arrived I didn't quite...
  6. Jewelry Box keeps the boss smiling

    Here is a mitered spline jewelry box I made for my wife. I took my wife to pick the wood, and I think she did a fantastic job. It's made with figured walnut, and the top is made of two different veneers (quilted maple and birdseye maple) glued to plywood and framed by Peruvian walnut, with...
  7. Dovetailed Walnut and Cherry shelf.

    Walnut and cherry shelf. The walnut sides are single boards, but the shelves are 2 board glue ups. 10" deep.
  8. Mid-Century Inspired Coffee Table

    Last year some of our good friends got married, and my college roommate and I decided to build them a coffee table. They are really into mid-century modern style furniture, and I've always like that style as well, we looked at some pictures for inspiration and sketched out some ideas over some...
  9. Current Global Issues

    I just realized that I had never posted this piece, the original "Current Global Issues". I figured that since one of the optional titles for another piece i posted today is "Current Global Issues II", I should post this as well. The figure is made from scrap mahogany, the backdrop is Buckeye...
  10. Emma's Nightstand

    My daughter needed a nightstand in her room and my wife gave me some rough measurements but free reign design wise to knock it out. I didn't know if the live edge skirting would work out but I think it turned out quite nice. Check out that grain!
  11. Cedar River Table

    Found a nice (and inexpensive) piece of cedar on my way back from a trip to VA. The epoxy is tinted green. The base is painted poplar.
  12. Finest Bribe. Odin as traveler.

    Based on carving by @Bagushevich http://lumberjocks.com/projects/394089 (second variant) Used this to bribe my friend who hosted the Ninth Yule Games. Cheating is encouraged so it's fine. Also won the craftsmanship award with this so win-win. Basswood with acrylic paint and sealant. The...
  13. solatarius lamentum

    I made this piece a few years ago, as a self-portrait, at a time when a number of family members, including my father and both living grandparents, had recently passed away. It is of Basswood, stained with STRONG espresso with a paste-wax coat, and stands about three feet tall. It was...
  14. Sewing Thread Box

    I promise all my projects won't be boxes! This is a claro walnut box I made for my Mother for Christmas last year. She wanted something to put her thread spools in for sewing, and I took it as an opportunity to practice some marquetry that I recently learned how to do from Paul Schurch. I have...
  15. Cedar Chest

    I found an old cedar chest that was sitting in my great, great grandfather's garage when we were cleaning his house after he passed away. From what history my family knew of it, it was at least 100 years old, and may have come across the ocean when some of the family migrated from over seas. It...
  16. Candelabra fit for "Lumberace"

    *Warning * this ain't suitable for your baby grand piano!! Made out of an oak limb, this candle holder stands about nine inches at it's peak and is 24" long. I heat treated it to 170 degrees in a homeade mini-kiln to kill powder post beetles (learned the hard way) and finished it with satin...
  17. Walnut/Bloodwood Box

    I can't believe that, after being a woodworker for 6 years now, I still haven't made a small gift-type box such as this. Nevertheless, I feel as though my first try really did nail it. Also, for those who know me (and my love for all things digital design/fab), I actually kept this all...
  18. Full Size Maple/Cherry Bedframe

    A full size bedframe made for my youngest daughter. The frame is Soft Maple along with resawn 8/4 cherry in the headboard. There is quite a bit of curl in the cherry, as the photos don't do it justice. Also the footboard has some curl in the maple as well. It was finished with a Mohawk vinyl...
  19. TV stand

    Sycamore Maple or European Sycamore Red oak skids Minwax wipe on poly I scored a couple hundred bf of this figured lumber at a sawmill auction a couple years back. This is the first I used it for a requested project from family. Looks like figured maple and works similar to Soft maple.
  20. Turned Olivewood Candle Holder

    So, the sled that I built for my bandsaw made it easy to mill some lumber out of logs, including a big chunk of olive. The main pieces were quite wet, but some of the offcuts were from limbs that were dead on the main log long before the tree was felled. One of those offcuts was large enough...
