  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. My first furniture build

    So this was my first real furniture building project, and I am very happy with the results. Of course, it is not perfect by any means, but I learned a ton. This is actually a test build using building lumber in order to perfect the design before I move to hardwood. But it turned out so good...
  3. Christmas Gift for Aunt

    This year, I drew my Aunt's name from a hat. I think she asked for a gift certificate from the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. The cap on the gift is $50 I believe. I decided to be cheap and make her gift. A twisted and ugly piece of Afrormosia scrap cutoff that cost $3, an ugly rough sawn piece of...
  4. two small Koa boxes

    Here are two small Koa boxes I have just finished. They are approximately 8" x 3" x 3". Due to the increasing rarity and difficulty of obtaining Koa, and my belief that it is one of the most beautiful of all woods, I am experimenting with small boxes done in 1/4" stock. The grain pattern is...

    Our old ikea nightstand were worn out. Time to build one! A walnut and zebrawood night stand. The case is a mitered box with waterfall esque grain flowing all the way around it. The miters are reinforced with maple splines. It is a 2 drawer nightstand with poplar drawers and a zebrawood front...
  6. Apricot Wood Bowl

    This is on of my lasted bowls. Got the bowl blank for a grab box off the web. Took into a local lumber yard and I was told it might be sycamore… I also did some research and I think it is apricot… So that is what I am going with. It has some wonderful character to it. On one side there is...
  7. Cherry Jewelry Box

    Just made this cherry box to try a few new things in the build process. I have been experimenting with mixig my own hand rubbed finishes and I was pretty pleased with this formula. If you look at the last pic I made a ring pad for the left compartment. I took two pieces of 6mm craft foam and...
  8. Finishing
    I did not research the full list of properties or ingredients of each of these items, but, like so many experienced members here have said, each item has its own pros and cons. due to the "Truth in Advertising" laws, a manufacturer does not have to list its ingredients to call it a certain item...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I purchased this old vise from a guy down the road from where I work. (He was kind enough to show me his shop too.) I've been looking for a deal on one and found this for a fair price, but it's missing a pretty important part…the quick release mechanism. I've looked online and am having a...
