  2. Kims Christmas box

    Felt only appropriate to make a box called Kids Christmas box for my sister Kim for Christmas. Its taken me a while to get around to posting it. Design is from A.J. Hamlers book titled Box Builders Handbook, this is my take on the box. I like the design has some interesting angles (most...

    This is my first real project that I built for my wife as a gift to open on the wedding day. Our wedding was in June but I've been meaning to post some pictures. It's made of cherry and Brazilian cherry and has a natural danish oil finish. I learned a whole lot during this project and I'm...
  4. Wedding Box

    This is my first post to Lumberjocks. I have drawn much inspiration from the works of so many people on the site that I thought I would share a couple of my pieces. Like just about everything important in my life this piece comes with a story. I got married last June for the second time (my...
  5. Gift For The Best Man

    This is the gift I gave my best man in June. He has been a dear friend for nearly 30 years. My wife found the quotation to go on the top (we are both college professors so the nerdiness of a quotation from Cicero is appropriate). The nice part was I told my bride to be I was making this box...

  7. Toy Trucks for my Nephew

    Well, after my last project, a large dresser, I decided I needed a break and to do some smaller projects with more instant gratification. That same weekend the dresser was done, I started some toy trucks for my nephew's 3rd birthday. Its not that bad, when you consider I kept 50% of my...
  8. Wine Bottle Stoppers - Wood Turning

    A few months ago I walked into a woodshop and kindled the flame of an old interest. Something new and exciting that stuck out to me was the wood lathe. The first time I saw the lathe I wanted to get someone to show me how to use it. After a month of catches and slips I bought my own and have...
  9. Coffee Cup Holder - Quick and Easy Gift Idea

    Hi everyone, I just finished a quick build and build video for a Coffee Cup Holder using a sycamore panel. It turned out pretty nice, I wish I would've used bigger hooks and spaced out the cups a little further apart, but it was good practice on panel joints for my upcoming dining table build...
  10. Glass holder/bar wall hanging

    This was an idea my wife had for a Birthday gift for my daughter in-law. Just a fun thing to hang in their "bar" area. Made from Oak and Ash and I cut the words from 1/8" baltic birch plywood. finished with spray acrylic.
  11. The snake cube

    Finally, I finished my first real project! It is a puzzle composed of 27 cubes of oak and beech. They are linked together by a sandow which crosses them through and through. The oak cubes were tinted with walnut stain. Then, they were varnished with spray lacqueer. It was made for a Christmas...
  12. The Better Beer Bottle Opener

    I imagine that some more industrious turner could use this general idea to make a bottle opener that resembled a baseball, football, hockey puck, soccer ball, etc… First I'd like to than the giants upon whose shoulders I stand: Paul - http://lumberjocks.com/projects/51035 Bob -...
  13. Sunset Tray - Scrap Wood Project -build video AlmFab

    Hey everyone, I just found out about this forum and am excited to share some projects. In this project, I go through my scrap bin and make a serving tray. With the variety of wood scraps I had on hand, I was able to create this sunset design going from dark earthy tones of walnut, rosewood...
  14. Shaving Razors

    Razor handles turned on the lathe from acrylic blanks for Christmas gifts. Turning this stuff makes a mess but they polish up nicely. Sanded up through 2000 grit and then polished with automotive headlight polish. After switching to a safety razor from the out-of-control-cost commercial products...
  15. Walnut/QSWO/Cherry DT Box ... for Ronnie

    "Ronnie" is my wife's (female) cousin. Ronnie … is coming up on Month Six of Sobriety. I'd imagine that some of you know that …. this is a huge accomplishment-not only coming to that place where you recognize that alcohol is NOT doing you any favors, but … actually quitting the bottle, and …...
  16. The Whittler's Toolchest

    If you prefer not to read, video is here View on YouTube I have a family member (brother in law) that had mentioned to his wife that he wanted to begin doing finer woodworking. He's in general construction so he doesn't get much chance to make smaller finer items. So what better way to hone...
  17. Cross Christmas Gift

    Gift for a co-worker. Maple with walnut inlay - this is an early attempt at inlay for me - turned out pretty decent. Mitres are the tightest I have ever made - thanks to my crosscut sled (how did I ever get along without it). Finsish is Danish Oil and wax. About 11 inches tall. Merry Christmas...
  18. Christmas Ornaments

    I got to spend a little time during the holidays making some Christmas ornaments. It is my first shot at turning them and I found it to be a lot of fun. They went over very well as Christmas gifts. Most of the wood was scraps from around the shop. One is Spalted Silver Maple and Ebony. The...
  19. Wooden Ring

    If you check out the Wedding Gift I made for my wife and the Christmas ornaments that are stripes and this ring you will notice a pattern. I like Red Heart and Maple, I like to use up my scrap wood and even the smallest pieces can be turned into something people with love. This ring is Red...
