  3. Maple & Walnut Butcher Block

    Every year, I play in a four day golf tournament with a longtime family friend. Originally, I would barter my landscaping services in exchange for entry but once I started woodworking, furniture became the currency. Last year it was a small entertainment cabinet and this year he and his wife...
  4. Madrone SPice Shelf

    I got some "Bugsy Madrone" very cheap at the local sawmill… these boards were the rattiest looking of the lot. I resawed them, and hand cut box joints which I like to leave a little 'proud'. I forgot to take shots before putting it to work! I love madrone. This board had some nice figure...

  8. Router Bit Box (my first box)

    I needed a box for my growing collection of router bits. I have been steadily amassing router bits so I purchased a foam bit "tray" from Rockler. The tray holds a selection of 1/4" and 1/2" shank bits. I thought "someday" I would build a simple box to hold that tray and in the meantime, it...
  9. Serving tray for my daughter

    It's been awhile since I posted anything I've built. My daughter, Olivia, has always been jealous because mom has her own serving tray that I bring her meals occasionally. I decided to build her, her own super duper serving tray. Its made of mahogany finger joints reinforced with walnut...

  12. Playing Card Box

    I found out this morning that it's my brother in law's birthday, and I wanted to give him something from the shop. He and his family play cards a lot, so I thought that a box for all his card decks would be appropriate. In the end, I think that I should have just gone out and bought something...
  13. Hey Pottzy, I'm no lurker ;-)

    I slapped together some pictures so my buddy Pottz has something to look at while others are probably vacationing somewhere cool. This is another version of my last project with different woods. This is canarywood on the outside and tiger maple on the inside. The top and bottom are quartersawn...
  14. No longer just a practice prototype.

    This started out as my first experiment with box joints using two contrasting woods. I used scraps of red oak and reclaimed cedar from my deck. I decided on 1/4" box joints to make the four sides of the box and then stopped. It was protype, only a test to see if I liked it or not. It sat around...
  15. Greene and Greene TV Stand

    Greene and Greene TV Stand of African Mahogany, Baltic Birch plywood, and ebony. No monkeys lost their home because of this project! One of the ways I augment my wood collection is to cruise Craigslist and look for old men's wood collections. You can often find pretty awesome deals on wood...
  16. Wall Hanging Chisel Rack

    I got tired of having my nice chisels all banging around in a box. I decided it was time to make a nice wall mount rack for them. This project was made with some scrap maple I had left over from another project. It was finished with 2 coats of shellac. I wasn't too fussy about the final finish...
  17. Dolphin Box for XMAS

    This is my first hand cut finger joint box and for good measure deciding to try my hand at some free style inlaying. I used a mix of Aspen, Purple Heart and some other type but I forget Oak maybe?. I covered the Aspen with a Cherry Stain. If you are curious or looking for a little laughter...
  18. Box joint jig idea I made that does various width 'teeth'

    I love box joints but really hated a thin kerf style box joint that I'd used for about 2 years. I decided I wanted to be able to choose how thick I'd make each teeth. So I came up with a jig that allows me to make my own widths based on a threaded rod and a crank on the end. Because my...

    Box joint / finger joint jig Single blade table saw. I finally got to make my self, one of these simple box joint jigs, actually for no other reason, than the fun of it. I was planning to make some boxes on the Festool VS600 I bought a year back and never got to use…, but were only in my...
