  1. Balvenie (Scotch) Cabinet

    This is a project I have worked on for way too long, (Work and Football season have really taken their toll). In my continuing quest for better hand cut dovetails and building small cabinets, i built this out of Flame Birch and Peruvian Walnut. I purchased the Birch with no project in mind, but...
  2. Jatoba iPad Stands

    Jatoba iPad Stands So I ordered some Jatoba 2×2x12 blanks (from Bellforestproducts.com) to make iPad stands for Christmas. With 2 blanks I was able to make 3 stands that are about 4L x 4W x 2H. I just trued up the blanks since they came a little rough and I used biscuits to align them for...
  3. Hand Cut Walnut/Cherry Dovetail Stool

    Tried my hand at hand cutting dovetails. Not too bad for a first attempt. Cherry and Walnut used.
  4. Madrone SPice Shelf

    I got some "Bugsy Madrone" very cheap at the local sawmill… these boards were the rattiest looking of the lot. I resawed them, and hand cut box joints which I like to leave a little 'proud'. I forgot to take shots before putting it to work! I love madrone. This board had some nice figure...
  5. Epic Wooden PC Case - WoodWorkLIFE

    Hey Guys, This was a very special project combining two of my biggest passions, woodworking and technology. I made PC case or a modded PC case whatever you want to call it, completely out of wood. For this project I used two contrasting woods that work wonderfully together, Sycamore and...
  6. Marking Gauge Dovetail Practise Box

    Hi guys, Nothing too special. I am still trying to get proficient at hand cutting dovetails so make opportunities to keep cutting them. This box was more dovetail practise - I just decided I may as well build a box while I was at it to hold my marking gauges - there is a spot reserved in the...
  7. First furniture: hand-cut dovetails and hidden compartments

    My very first furniture project became obvious when my wife was fed up with our seven years old stacking his dress-up costumes in every corner of the house. Being raised in a classic French house full of antique furniture, I was always surrounded by dovetails, so a dress-up dovetailed chest it...
  8. Contemporary Chest of Drawers

    I actually finished this back in late August but I just released 3 video podcasts on my site detailing the entire build. If you are interested please check out episode 77, episode 78, and episode 79. This was the first project that I actually cut all the dovetails by hand and a special thanks...
  9. Opa's Box

    Quick update on a box I made this weekend that was a direct knockoff of from Sean over at Simply Cove on Youtube - great woodworker and awesome content for those looking for another online woodworker to follow. That said, proportions etc. were completely different vs. his on this one. I did...
  10. Bathroom shelves with sliding dovetails

    I needed a set of shelves in my bathroom to hold my shaving equipment, so I decided to build a set out of western maple. This was my first attempt at sliding dovetails, which I mostly just wanted to use for the visual effect with the contrasting wood colors. I cut the joints with a 5/8"...
  11. Dovetailed, dovetail tools box.

    Off and on for years I would tackle hand cut dovetails. I adhered to the practise makes perfect cliche. Copious amounts poor practise produced just barely OK dovetails. I even took a class offered by my woodworkers club. There with a little instruction and a nudge to practise what i had learned...
  12. Oak and Walnut Dovetailed Box for Katy

    This was for my sister Katy for her birthday and is my first box with my new Veritas 14 tpi dovetail saw. I was able to cut much smaller and tighter dovetails than on my other boxes. I was also using my newly made 1:7 dovetail marker. So far, I've done all my dovetails by eye but I needed...
  13. Walnut and Purple Heart Dovetailed Box

    The one is walnut with a carved purple heart pull. Finish is BLO, Sprayed Lacquer and Wax. The bottom is purple velvet. The pull was the first time I've tried carving and it actually turned out ok. Dovetails are hand cut. The top is rabbeted to fit into the box. 6×3 5/8×2 7/8
  14. Maple and Cherry Dovetail Box

    This is my second attempt at a dovetailed box. Cherry and maple again. I really like this combo. This one has a hinged lid. I think I liked the sliding lid better. I have to do something to jazz up the next one. Maybe a cherry handle… The last two pics are unfinished. The first is while...
  15. First couple of hand cut dovetail boxes

    These two boxes are the first of some hand made boxes made with hand cut dovetails on my new moxon vise. This first one is hickory ( i think) from a reclaimed pallet jointed and thicknessed with a hand plane/smoother. I am using Japanese pull saws to cut the dovetails and a fret saw to remove...
  16. Small map frame

    Nothing too fancy, just a small (8×14 inches or so) frame made of ash to hold a map of our neighborhood where we can look at it on the wall. The frame is ¾" ash, hand dimensioned, with a couple ¼" beads put in with the Veritas Combination Plane, then the outer edge rounded over with a #10...
  17. Shaker Stepstool from Drawings of Tommy Mac

    This stepstool was built from Tommy MacDonald's drawings and program - Rough Cut Woodworking. I used maple that I got at the home center - it was flat enough for this project to work out just fine. It's maple - but it has cool figure and birds-eye looking details in some places - bonus, right...
  18. Spalted Maple and Yellowheart Box with hand cut DT's.

    I've always done dovetails with a router but wanted to try cutting them by hand. This was my first attempt. I wasn't planning on finishing it but they came out alright so I put a bottom and top on it. The wood is spalted Maple (I think) and Yellowheart. The finish is clear lacquer. Size is...
  19. Garage Shelves

    I made these shelves to help organize the gardening supplies in the garage.
  20. Stowable Router Table

    I am limited to a one car garage for my workshop so I make every attempt to make the best use of the space. A lot of this entails making my tools and accessories stowable. This was not only my first attempt at a router table but also my first attempt workshop project. My original plan was to...
