  1. Glue Up Box

    I built this years ago but I thought I would share my glue up box with you. I was just learning how to use the Incra Fence system and these were some of my first half blind dove tails. Not sure who else even still uses these things. Made from some scrap 3/4" poplar that was glued up for the...
  2. Wilbur's new crib

    With impending arrival of our new twins, I decided to make a place for the dog to sleep. Because I wasn't convinced that I could make a safe and good looking pair of cribs in time so I mad a crib for the dog. What I ended up with is this Cherry and Maple dog crate which is held together with...
  3. Whiskey barrel head clocks

    Here are a few clocks I made out of whiskey barrel heads. About 21" round and weighing in around 15lbs. Heavy but nice. I had to watermark my pics because another project was apparently shared all around the world. :)
  4. Mail Sorter Unit

    I have been slowly building projects that organize sections in my house. I am tired of all the mail that I get into the house and some items are kept for a short period of time. So I built this 3 slot( for 3 people) mail sorter and shelf unit. Its made out of 8×1 pine, and I routered the top...
  5. Cedar chest

    This is a cedar chest I built last spring for my future sister-in-law. She wanted something to put in a screened porch for looks and to store a few small gardening tools, workboots, and whatever. It's very basic construction. A plywood box with a frame built around it. No fancy joinery, a...
  6. Sign with a story.

    Please forgive the atrocious photography… I took these pics just before delivering the sign… and can't now get a better one… The story… A good friend's Father-in-Law died recently and he is interred on a hill over looking a valley with a back drop of Melaluca trees… His surname is Grima and he...
  7. Picnic-Styled Coffee Table

    This piece is made with stock pine and was originally designed to fit a small apartment living room. It was my first piece I built, using a handsaw and a drill with alot of sandpaper, and as such has a special place in my heart. It has a picnic table look, and I have since designed and built...
  8. Zak's Toybox

    This is a toybox that my grandfather made over 30 years ago for me. I did a little fixing and refinishing and gave it to my son. Plus I just needed a good excuse to show off my boy! ...and yes, that is him hitting MY finger with a hammer in my new profile pic…

  9. Son's "first" Project

    For my son's fourth birthday, I made him a project kit of this step stool. Since his attention span is short and his thinking that things are made instantly, I completed the project including the finish. All he had to do is glue the joints and hammer in the Miller dowels! Once the glue was...
  10. Cross Box

    This is a box I made for my sister for Christmas. She is expecting her first child and I thought this would be something nice for the baby. We're not particularly religious but I am the Godfather so I thought it was fitting. It is made from Cherry, Black Walnut, and Poplar(bottom). The tab to...
  11. "unbearable likeness of emerging genesis"

    The sculpture is my version of the beginning of life. The two walnut trees I found in the Texas hill country had be dead for some time. In the Texas hill country the middle of most trees rot out first but I had found one tree just before it got really punky.The spalting had already occoured and...
  12. Siamese cat necklaces

    I had requests from my mom and grandma for Siamese cat necklaces like the dog ones I've been doing. I made 4, two for gifts and two to sell. Perfect! The cats are Indian Laurel and maple with a thin backer of walnut since the ears were otherwise too fragile.
  13. Walnut Beach

    This is pen # 3 from my "Beginners Pen Making Kit" I purchased from Busy Bee Tools. My co-worker gave me a couple of pieces of Walnut and American Beech, so in return I will be giving him this pen made from that wood. This is a Standard pen (the kit contains 5 of them), and I attempted some...
  14. Sticks & string & wedges - it's a clamp!

    Here's a fun trick I picked up from a book I had around. They called it a luthier's clamp, but it's handy even if you're not making guitars. You can use this for any edge-gluing job, but its biggest advantage is when gluing up thin pieces. You'll need a number of sticks, the same number of...
  15. A Bright Gift Idea

    This is my rendition of lamps I saw on Lj's made by Asher, Yokel and Jackmoony (links to their projects below) I tweaked the design slightly, eliminating the arches at the base and beads to opt for a simpler more "modern" appearance. I also changed the design so that in order to change the light...
  16. Glue Bottle Helper

    So I can't take credit for this idea Awsum55 posted it here. I just dressed it up a bit. A definite improvement over a set of pliers. I tagged them so hopefully I can find them on my bench
  17. Nightstand Project

    Here are the Maple Bedside tables that I built. I used the plan from Wood Magazine Nov 2008. My wife bought me the plan here. I made a few changes. I built one deep drawer instead of two shallow drawers and I made the top a bit smaller. I also used pocket screws instead of mortise and tenon...
  18. Desktop Forklift

    I made this project for my girlfriend. She always loved watching me drive a forklift and this was a good way for her to remember me every time she sits down at her desk =). The "unit" on the forks has room for business cards and the back is a pen holder…made with various woods, pine, cedar...
  19. Tamo Trout Nets

    I have been using the Tenkara flyfishing rods lately and I've made a couple tamos (nets) to go with. Traditionally you get a branch from your favorite river, but I've just picked up a couple from around my home. Heated with steam and bent to shape. I've built two, one with a longer handle, and...
  20. Grinder Storage Station

    Made of plywood, SYP drawers and top, and iron on edge banding. Had the paint matched to my lathe at the BORG. Drawers are sliding dovetail. Poly finish on wood. Features: Double locking casters Same height as table saw for stock support Grinder is attached with T-NUTs in the top...
