  1. Ukulele/Guitar Stand

    My very first wood project, a stand for my ukulele :) The imperfection is so obvious, hopefully my skill will improve with time.
  2. First ever bowl on the lathe (osage orange wood)

    Other than helping turn a few pens on a friends midi lathe- this is the first ever woodturned project I have made. I recently bought an older cheap lathe on a homebuilt stand to try my hand at doing this sort of stuff and so far I love it. I'm planning on practicing more with what I have then...
  3. Nightstand Box (My first box)

    My wife has always had a red box on her side of the bed where she keeps her lotions, drinks, eyeglasses, and contacts. Well, I decided that wanted to practice making box cut corners with my new router, so I decided to take some scrap oak and sturgeon and play. I was just making corners that...
  4. My first Cutting Board - Snakes

    This is an end grain cutting board Approx. 230×340mm 24mm. The pattern is one of my own, Snakes. The materials are American Black Walnut and Maple. The quality of the Maple (which was just what I had on hand) was not good, with a lot of darker wood in it, hence the slightly blotchy finish to...

    Made this a few years ago. It was my first project that I actually sold…. Made out of African mahogany scraps. Finished with the witches brew of blo, poly, and mineral spirits. Learned alot from that project….
  7. Dog Bowl - Feeding Station

    So not only is this my first woodworking project, but also my first posting on LJs! This is a feeding station for my sister and her husband's black lab. They were using some old mixing bowls for his food/water bowls and were looking for something to neatly store some dog food and remove the...
  8. My first hand cut dovetail

    I finally received my Veritas dovetail saw and decided to give it a go! It turned out better then I expected, but I can see how you would need to practice to get this skill down.
  9. My first wood working project

    This is the first thing I made woodworking years ago. It is a VARY simple oak box that I made for a friend when she said I couldn't build any thing :P this was made using nothing other then hand files and a jig saw. The inside is lined with felt and it is finished using minwax gunstock stain and...
  10. First Bookshelf

    A bookshelf that I built for my fiances birthday. It was my first project and was what got me into woodworking. I enjoyed it so much that I am taking on another project and hopefully making a profit from it (Small Bar… I live in a college town).
  11. First pens!

    First pens I've ever made. As well as the first use for my new general maxi vs+ lathe! First is just a regular slimline done in maple, the second is a greek point slimline done in zebra wood. sanded to 12000 grit using the micro mesh pads I got and finished them in polyurethane then waxed. Will...
  12. First cutting board

    These are the first cutting boards I've made. The square one is walnut and maple with purpleheart accents. The longer one is just walnut and maple. I enjoyed making these and I'm ready to get some more done.
  13. My First "Successful" Dovetail

    For the past couple of weeks at school, I have been training for the Skills competition in April. One of the things that will be in the competition project will be dovetails. So I have been practicing them for a while, and they are really fun to build. I will admit this was not my first...
  14. First Carved Jewelrybox Attempt

    So, I have been watching Boris Khechoyan carve masterpieces for a while in the shop that I hang out in, and I decided to ask him if he would teach me to carve. Finished this just in time for my three year "anniversary" and I'm sure my girlfriend is going to be very happy! His website, for those...
  15. Bookshelf/Nightstand

    This project started with my wife wanting something to replace the cheap plastic shelving she was using as a nightstand and the need to use the space behind the door for more than a place to pile things. This shelf was the result. It is made from a single sheet of oak plywood with shoe molding...

    My first attempt at a wooden mallet. The head is red oak and purpleheart, the handle is made from a leftover scrap of treated pine, finished it with BLO. I will be starting on my second tomorrow. I have some maple I've been itching to use. Will post it when I'm done.
  17. First Turned Items: Cigar Pens

    I never see pen photos being posted, maybe they are a little overplayed, but please cut me a little slack… these four pens are my first turnings and I wanted to show them off. Two of the pens with Black Chrome fittings and crazy grain are Swetenia Mahogany, while the two tone pen is heavily...
  18. My first bookshelf--lessons learned

    This was my first major piece of furniture. The only power tools I had were a circular saw, a cordless drill, and a palm sander. It lived in my office unfinished for several months because I ran out of time before finishing it. I wanted to post it only because it reminds me how much I have...
  19. Reclaimed Barn Wood Sliding Door

    This is a sliding barn door I built for friends to replace french doors between their living room and study. It is made from 100(ish) year old Wisconsin barn siding that was carefully power-washed, sanded and wire brushed to remove dirt and splinters but retain the wood's character and as much...
