  1. "Apothecary" Cabinet

    A buddy of mine's Halloween crazy wife wanted me to build her a "Apothecary" cabinet for her Halloween decor. The first pic is what she said she wanted, but out of old narly barn wood. Well as I have pretty much RESIDED my barn, because of past projects, I kinda had to come up with something...
  2. Skelly's Halloween Treat

    Skelly's home was part of a project I started last fall, just before my accident. The completed project was targeted for a contest. I missed the deadline, so there was no need for the project to be completed. This summer I decided to use the coffin for a Halloween container to give out candy to...

  4. Jack-O-Lantern

    I had this idea last week, and could hardly wait to get into the shop Saturday. I wound up staying out until about 9:30 PM… Tired, but happy it came out so well. I turned the top and body out of a single block of maple on my lathe; shaped and hollowed the body, fitted the lid, then jam...
  5. Ghoulish Trinket Box

    So, today I go in to pick up my final paycheck from summer's gig, and while I'm there I'll be dropping off this bribe…er, "gift" for another designer! This classic 'pine box' style casket was cut from a single section of kiln dried Doug fir left from a home repair job I recently completed...
  6. Spooky Scrolled Halloween Keys and Ornaments

    I really enjoyed designing these two sets of Halloween ornaments. They are fun to scroll and can be used in so many ways to decorate for the upcoming Halloween season. I left a set of natural maple, and I stack cut them with a layer of birch plywood underneath so I got two sets in the time it...
  7. Halloween Relief Sign

    Hey all, This was my first hand routed raised (Relief) sign. I drew up a quick pattern idea in photoshop this morning and went to work. The wood is 3/4 whitewood from HD. I glued on the pattern and routed out the detail with a 1/8 straight bit, and routed the rest with a 1/4 round nose bit for a...
  8. Pallet Skeleton Halloween Decoration

    Last weekend I did my second halloween decoration of the year and made this neat little skeleton from free pallet wood. I had some soft 3/4 pieces of old pallet wood lying around, after gluing on a pattern I made up on photoshop I cut all the pieces out on the scroll saw. Did some fine detailing...
  9. Halloween Planter Coffin

    Hey Everyone! Another weekend = Halloween Decoration #4 Heading into this weekend I had no idea what to create. When I made the skeleton I though of building a little coffin for him but decided against it, I guess the coffin idea stuck. I went out into the shed this morning and just started...
  10. Happy Halloween!

    The Hammond Library here in LA sponsors our carving club. The librarian is always asking us to bring in more carvings to display, so I made this one for them to put on the check-out desk. Measures 3×3 x 3 inches, not counting the stem. Hollowed out with a 1.5 inch Forstner bit, and a...
  11. Nevermore Layered Scroll Saw Plaque

    This layered plaque was inspired by the Edgar Allen Poe poem "The Raven." I have always been a huge fan of Poe's work, and in my mind I had a vision of how I wanted to depict the poem in a layered plaque form. The plaque hopefully conveys the eerie essence of the poem, and includes the bright...
  12. A Jock-O-Lantern

    Well, this isn't exactly made of wood, but I thought it deserved posting here as my first carving, even if it was on a pumpkin. Just getting into the holiday spirit a little. Didn't spend much time in the shop this weekend but I did get to spend some time with my wife and daughter carving...

  14. Spooky cats

    Had old 2×6 already. Probably didn't matter, as I distressed it more on a wire wheel to bring out the grain. Surprisingly little black spray paint to weather it black. The eyes were tough. Tried 3 times before I realized I couldn't spray a template. White spray paint on black spray just bled...
  15. Halloween Decorations

    I was asked to make some Halloween decorations for our local coffee shop that displays the stuff I make. Went online and saw a photo of the flamingo skeleton, decided I had to try a couple of these, then I found a photo of the person skeleton being chased by a dog skeleton, and had to make one...
  16. Halloween Silhouette Ornaments or Mini-Plaques

    Just in time for the Halloween season! I loved designing these two sets of Gothic Halloween silhouette plaques and ornaments! They were so fun to cut and look really cool and creepy! The larger mini-plaques measure approximate 6" x 4" and the smaller ornament-sized plaques measure about 4"...

    Foot powered vehicle I made for a Holloween Festival at our church in 2011. It is made with from unused particle board shelving material (16"X3/4" for the sides) that I inherited from the previous owner of our home. I also reinforced the sides with 3/4" pine plywood for the car sides to add...
