  1. Fish Tank

    After building the dinning table, I had some wood left over. I've always wanted a big fish tank, so I bought some glass, made some sawdust and built one. The glass is a 2.5' 3' octagon and 3' high. It holds ~180 gallons, and a lot of fish. One of these days I'll get around to building a top for it.
  2. Spessart oak entry door

    Decided to change my front door about a year ago from the ugly 70's style slab door to the period appropriate craftsman style to go along with my 1926 home. Door is Spessart oak, lightly fumed with ebony plugged tenons and dentil shelf inlay accents. Used hand blown bullseye glass for the...
  3. Pint Mugs

    Finished sanding and started the salad bowl coat of the pint cups…. Updated Pictures…..Almost done, just need a wax seal and ready to go….tested the amount they hold also, and my math wasn't too bad.
  4. Segented Wine Goblets

    Here are a pair of wine goblets I made. Had to try another segmented turning after my last one did not turn out. (they say to get back on that horse so I did) Left one is Walnut and Maple. Right one is Padauk and Maple. Each have 54 pieces for a total of 108 pieces of wood. Walnut and Padauk...
  5. Heart on glass

    Hi, I really hate buying greetings cards, especially when they eventually find their way into the bin, so I tend to like to create my own and this was an idea I had to use some small glass shelves that were left over from a cabinet that we had thrown away. The heart is carved from a bit of oak...
  6. Crappy photo box

    Another project, another failure. Like the coffee table I made, I had high hopes and they were crushed. I wanted to make my mom something for her birthday. She is really into photography and her grandkids, so I wanted to make something appropriate. Instead of a frame, I had an idea to...
  7. These Are the Days of Our Lives...

    The other day, I popped into the woodworking store and on the clearance shelf was a bunch of half-hour and hour glasses. On an impulse, I grabbed one and gingerly brought it home. As a sailor, I've always been intrigued by old-school timekeeping devices (a mechanical tall case clock is on my...
  8. Coffe Table for Mothers day present (7 years in the making!)

    This is really one of my first woodworking project since I started it in highschool (15 years ago!), although I didn't finish it until about 7 years after (8 years ago). I started the legs in highschool not having any idea how much work they would be. After highschool I didn't feel I had the...
  9. Media Cabinet

    I built this out of necessity. My 2 year old daughter was getting into everything. I had an open glass thing that had all my electronics on and I had put a little fence up to keep her out. Well, that stopped working a while ago so here is my child proof media cabilet. It's not a piece of fine...
  10. Mesquite Bar set

    The wine glasses, mugs and wooden shooters are made from mesquite from north Texas. The wine glasses are a turning technique called inside out turning. The log is cut square and then split into 4 equal parts and glued back together with the center of the log on the outside. It is mounted on the...
  11. Skylight Birdhouse

    I was aggravated when I went to pick up my last wood order. I was expecting the poplar lumber to be clear and evenly colored like my last order. My answer to everything - Why not make a birdhouse with it? I split the roof and inserted a glass panel. The panel was cut off of an HP flatbed...

  13. Chrismatory Cabinet

    Fr. Gerome wishing to display the Chrism oils, looked through his church furniture catalogue and found a cabinet he liked (only ~$300), except he wished it to be triangular and mounted in a corner. Somebody mentioned my name; you can guess the rest of the story. Starting with the height of the...
  14. Transfer light box

    I have always wanted to make a transfer light box. Being indoors now that the weather has been cold and wet and can't do outside projects, this was the chance to make it. I had started designing to the glass I had (36 inch by 22 inch by 1/4 inch thick.) The box ended up being 4 1/2 deep in order...

  16. Art Nouveau Mirror (Copy Cat)

    This Mirror was a copy of a Julian Hamer Designed. His web site is Fineartmirrors.com . Julian's work is fabulous. Since they were more than I could afford ($2600.00) I decided to try my hand at making it for my Daughter's Christmas present. Walnut with 3 coats lacquer. Man I take horrible pictures.
  17. Timber reception desk

    I made a table for a family in the summer and the husband was part of a group reconditions a downtown Buffalo building as upscale apartment housing and asked me to make the desk. I worked with their designer and came up with this design - it is Douglas fir timbers in front with led light strips...
  18. Copper Rose w/ Glass Display Case

    New pictures now up. so this is another attempt at a rose, though this time i went for the traditional rose, not a prairie rose. This meant it would be much more intricate, with more details and petals. It actually went from around 8 petals on the prairie rose to about 20 petals on the...

  20. Cherry and Burl Jewelry Box

    This jewelry box was a gift for my son's girlfriend. Her requirement was for a place to hang necklaces. I found this plan on Woodcraft and pretty much followed it exactly. The main wood is cherry and the accent wood is some scrap maple burl. As folks that make small objects know, smaller is not...
