  1. Empire table

    Couple months ago we delivered this Empire diner room table. Our clients loves empire and asked us to create a dining room table inspired by an italian empire library table. The top was made from solid mahogany Patrick Edwards bought in 72 or 74, I can't remember. The marquetry for the...
  2. 2012 Ornaments

    Here are a couple of the ornaments I made for Christmas presents this year. I made six total. I decided to do something a little different than previous years. I laminated four scrap pieces of wood: cherry, curly walnut, sassafras, and redheart. I then rough cut the heart shapes on my scroll...
  3. Wall Decoration (Lemons into lemonade)

    One of those projects where nothing seemed to go right. The end result was good, and I still had all of my fingers, so I guess it was a win. Otherwise I haven't had so many problems on a (relatively simple) project before. But as I like to say, the only simple operation is the one you aren't...
  4. Earring Box

    This is a box I made for a pair of earrings I bought for my wife for Christmas. This box was the most fun I've had with a project in a long time. Very simple in it's construction and very small. The box is red cedar and birdseye maple with a cherry lip to help seat the lid. Finish is shellac...
  5. Sofa Table with Granite Insert

    I was selected to build a Mission style sofa table with some granite scraps from the clients kitchen. I used elements of Mission furniture such as through tenons, side slats, shelf, similar dimensions, and corbels, but that is where the similarities end. The top and shelf are cherry with...

  7. Pot pouri Box

    This box was made for a wedding present. What do you give to a bride and groom who are in old age and need for nothing and can buy whatever they need? This was my answer. I used my violin wood working skills. Heat bending thin strips of material, inlay, carving and french polishing.The sycamore...
  8. Nautilus Acoustic Mandolin Prototype

    Progress on my project to develop an affordable, one-man shop, tap tuned, varnish finish, made-in-the-USA instrument by optimizing the entire construction process. This shows the first two prototypes. One is parallel braced and the other is transverse braced. Instead of traditional binding, the...
  9. Music Box replica circa 1845

    Built this music box for a friend that is a collector of 18th century music boxes. He had a similar box I used for the detail and joinery. The box had challenging "double blind" dove tails that had to be hand cut. I made a prototype to get the joinery right. The box is made from french...
  10. Solid Cherry Changing Table - Dresser

    I built this changing table for my first grandson. I wanted to make a piece of furniture that would be a family heirloom. My mother loved solid Cherry and almost all of her furniture was built from this beautiful wood. I chose Cherry in honor of her. This was definitely a labor of love and I...
  11. Butterfly Mesquite

    This is a butterfly I made out of a piece of Mesquite wood. The butterfly wings are about 8-9 inches long. The wood was about the size of a fireplace log so I put it on the bandsaw and started slicing to see what I might find. After a few slices I could see what looked like a butterfly wing...
  12. Tea Box

    I made this tea box for my mom's 80th birthday. It is made from some leftover pieces of mahogany and curly maple. It was made completely from rough sawn lumber, dimensioned to thickness with hand planes and all joints hand cut with saws, chisels and hand planes. No machines in my shop. It...
  13. Walnut Writing Desk

    Made this as my master's piece for my wife in 1988. Involves every aspect of furniture making I could do: outlined dovetails (ebony stripping), inlay (ivory, holly wood), book-matched and curved doors, both sets drawers along front (all one piece), drawers above curved from one piece, carving of...
  14. First Commission, Inlayed Jewelry Box

    Just finished my first commission! Box is curly soft maple, cherry for the tray and dividers. The inlay is black dyed pearwood. Finish is french polished shellac. Tray is lined with suede. Had to buy a 1/16" chisel for the tray dovetails. Feels good to get this one done.
  15. An Automated Box

    This box was inspired by the work of George W. Betjemann and Sons who were prominent case makers in London in the mid-19th century. I want to mention also Daniel Lucian, proprietor of Daniel Lucian Antique Boxes in London, who was kind enough to share valuable insights and information about the...

  18. Dinosaur Puzzle / Diorama

    This is another Christmas present for a grandson. The plans are from Wood Magazine. I changed the plan and added a box underneath the puzzle base to store the pieces - empty the pieces out, replace the lid, turn it over and put the pieces together on the top. A great way to ship and store it. I...
  19. Commissioned Idaho Cribbage board

    Hi, all. It's been a while since I posted and I wanted to show my latest small commission project, an Idaho cribbage board. It's about 18.5 inches tall and 1.75 inches thick. The holes are all laid out in CorelDraw and then printed and pasted to the walnut board for cutting and drilling, LOTS...
  20. Box for coping saw

    After building the coping saw for the 2021 Shop Tool Swap I needed a way to package it securely so it would arrive in one piece. I measured the saw, and decided it would fit in a Small USPS Flat Rate Box (picture 6), but there wasn't a lot of spare room. I still had some ash left after building...
