  1. Burl Box

    Back in November a friend sent me a couple of pieces of walnut burl veneer. I've finally gotten around to using it in a project. This is a relatively small box, the overall dimensions are 4 3/4" x 2 3/8" x 2 3/8". The sides are 3/8" thick walnut, the lid is 3/8" thick tiger maple, and the...
  2. Washer puzzle

    A few days ago I saw this puzzle here on LumberJocks. After making a prototype, I was amazed that nobody could solve the puzzle (including myself). The string is attached through a hole in a handcut walnut dowel.This way the string around the wood is not glue soaked. The wood is steamed beech...
  3. Trifecta

    This set started back in February when I made the small Walnut Burl box. I quickly decided that it needed a bigger brother, shortly after that the bigger box got a fraternal twin. Now I have a set. Like I said, this all started with this little gem back in February. This little box was so...
  4. The Mahogany Madness Machinist Chest!

    LOTS of pics/reading to follow just FYI Video is here if you prefer not to read. View on YouTube This project is one that took a while to complete. Arguably the hardest part of it was just finding the time to build while working full time and being married! I had wanted a sort of "bench...
  5. Wanut Table Top

    My father has a Singer sewing machine treadle base that had a glass table top and he wanted me to make him a new top out of Walnut. The Top is 36" x 22" x 3/4" My hardwood dealer had an 11" wide board of 4/4 Black Walnut with an interesting figure and sap wood combination that was perfect for...
  6. Pill Box

    Pill Box Working really small is a way to challenge your skills and build your attention to detail. Small mistakes will show up in a really big way. This little pill box is 2" wide, 1 1/4" deep, and 1" tall I'm not sure what species it is, but I know it's a Brazilian hardwood. The liner is...
  7. Altoids Box

    It occurred to me that my Altoids tin wasn't very nice to look at or carry in my pocket, so I made myself a pretty little box to carry my mints in. It's the same marterial and construction method I used for my Pill Box just with defferent dimensions. So if you want to see how I made it just...
  8. Birdseye Maple And Walnut Box - 2018 Spring Box Swap

    This was my entry for the 2018 Spring Box Swap where members who signed up would build a box and exchange it with some other participant who's name was drawn at random. This box is made with 1/2" Walnut sides, a veneered quilted Birdseye Maple lid insert, and African Padauk corner posts. It...
  9. Cherry Sofa Table

    I don't usually sell my woodworking pieces. I normally give my pieces as gifts to people who mean a lot to me. So this will be my very first commission piece. Woodworking is my hobby and passion, the last thing I want is for it to feel like a job, but Kay is a sweet lady and this is a piece that...
  10. Small Krenov Inspired Cabinet (hand tools only)

    I was inspired to do this little cabinet after looking at some of the great James Krenov's work. I needed a skill building exercise and this piece has a little of everything, dovetails, mortise and tennons, frame and panel, drawer fitting, and even some curves. Dimensions: Overall 18" tall x 8"...
  11. Isaac Youngs 1840 Wall Clock - Hand Tools Only

    This piece is really just based on the 1840 wall clock design. I modified the design to incorporate glass doors for the pendulum and I used a smaller clock face to allow the Sepele to show more around the clock face. I also did not apply the typical half round hanger found on the top of most...
  12. A Little Asian Influence - Hand Tools Only

    My lastest creation started out as an exercise in getting banding to meet perfectly at the mitered corners. As the project moved forward it decidedly needed some feet and from there the Japanese style handle finished it off. I used Cherry, Walnut, and Maple. As always with my projects, it's all...
  13. My Workbench Build - Hand Tools Only

    In May of 2015 after a year of watching woodworking videos on YouTube and falling in love with the idea of working wood with hand tools only (the way grandpa used to do it), I decided to jump in with both feet. By this time I had assembled a minimalist set of hand tools and I got to work. I had...
  14. Tiny Box - Brazilian Tiger and Hard Maple - Hand Tools Only

    I needed a place for my router plane blades and I was inspired by Lumber Jock Marty Backe's storage solutions on his terrific YouTube channel. This wood was repurposed from hard wood flooring samples and all of the work was done with hand tools only.
  15. Sewing table

    My wife asked that I make her a sewing table for her birthday and I finally finished it even though it was a little over one year late. I decided to make it using hand tools only. This was my second project where I used only hand tools, the first was a small table that I made in a hand tool...
  16. Raised Panel Box

    This is a simple, yet elegant, box with reinforced mitered corners, a raised panel lid, and grain matching around the outside. The box is 4" tall 6" deep, and 10" wide. It's made with hard maple and walnut and I used hand tools only. You can find a complete tutorial of this build in the guild...
  17. Blogs
    Challenge accepted! Theme requirements: 1. Use at least two different woods from two different countries. 2. Include at least one non-wood element in the build. Ok! So, I've decided to make a Small round carving mallet for this challenge. My two woods are Hard Maple and Purpleheart. To...
