  2. Three stories shelve

    Three stories shelve To store the toys of my boys (just on eof them was born when this project wa finished) I made a three stories shelve.

  3. A Hopeless Romantic's 5th Anniversary Gift

    My 5th year anniversary is on June 2nd, but we decided to celebrate this weekend (memorial day and all). The traditional gift for the 5th year of marriage is something made of wood.

  5. 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...

    Here is the Potpourri Bowl I turned for my wife's Christmas present this year. It is from a piece of Tiger Maple that I got from Rockler a couple of weeks ago when they were on sale. Could not start turning it until last tuesday when she went out of town to deliver the trays to her sister. 6...
  7. Aurora Nightstand

    My wife needed more room for her "this and that clutter" kept on the nightstand on her side of the bed. That gave me the excuse needed to make her an Aurora Nightstand. This is my take on Darrel Peart's Aurora Nightstand. Darrel is a modern day guru of Greene & Greene design principles in...
  8. Weekend wall shelf in figured maple

    Hello there, This is a project I made for my mother this past Christmas. It was one of the first projects that I completed where I processed the wood all the way from a standing tree to a finished product. I used my grandpa's old hand planes that my mother gave me a few years ago. It adds a...
  9. Take the neck ache out of your day with these beautiful Laptop Risers!

    I have noticed that many people are having neck problems, ie. stiffness and soreness, and terrible posture using laptops. The screen is set too low and if lifted up the keyboard is way too high. This usually works out okay for temporary periods of time but some people actually work on their...
  10. Ergonomic Laptop Risers!

    This stand is made with English Beech and Purple Heart. I know I can use UVA prohibitors in the finish with lacquer and such, can I do anything about that with oil and or wax? I am trying to work out a finishing process that will keep the color the longest and feel wonderful to the touch and...
  11. Ergonomic Laptop Risers!

  12. Ergonomic Laptop Risers!

    This set comes with the high and low risers. This is the highest riser I have and is my preference to work with. I like things that are not symmetrical which this is, and isn't. Personally I like it but most people have lots of touble with asymmetry. That's okay, there's plenty out in the world...
  13. First post, First cutting boards

    I finished a few cutting boards over the past month or so, and though I'd share them. I started with the Walnut, Maple & Cherry board, which I made as an Xmas present to my mom. I had some left over scraps, and made the smaller checkered board from those. Over the holidays, I got a lot of...
  14. Christmas Present for a Friend

    I have a friend who has gotten into woodworking, and over the past couple of years I've enjoyed teaching him techniques - particularly with hand tools. Last year he moved away, and doesn't have a proper bench for hand tool work, so for Christmas this year I built him a Moxon vise. The oak was...
  15. maple box

    I found the wood for this box while going through my scrap pile. Loved the way the grain looked, so made the box to fit the top. Thanks for looking. PS Anyone know a good way to add a discrete watermark to a photo? I had one of mine used by another woodworker. Drag.

    Latest iteration of my signature plane design. This one is a true Lumberjocks collective effort. The beautifully tight-grained sapele body was purchased from firetowerfp and the wonderfully figured Norway maple tote came from summerfi. It was a piece he milled himself and I bought a few...
  17. Bar

    I just finished a big project that has taken me almost 2 years to complete. This is a custom designed and built bar in my basement. The design is one my wife and I came up with. I designed and built the entire project (with my wife's help of course) We knew we wanted an old style bar, so we...
  18. Photo Album Cover

    Photo album cover that I made for my girlfriend last week. I was experimenting with different materials for inlay - the branches/vines are made out of lead solder! Not the cleanest job, but it was a fun little project with some board scraps I had lying around. I had a couple of people tell me...
