  1. Deathly Hallows Poster

    Frame is from Oak, the scrollsaw work is in Jaktoba. Covered with an acrylic layer so her kids won't accidentally destroy the delicate parts. So my daughters both love the Harry Potter series of books. One of them has numerous movie memorabilia and I thought she would like a unique addition to...
  2. Edgelit Lamp

    True this project isn't entirely form wood but the bass was the more involved part of the project and it is nearly entirely wood! The base is made exclusively from Chakte Viga. The image is of the "Deathly Hallows" emblem from the Harry Potter series and is etched by hand into 1/4" thick...
  3. Real Magic Wand

    This is the real deal! A magic wand that actually floats in thin air. I got the idea when after introducing my kids to the Harry Potter franchise, my daughter asked me to make her a magic wand. I turned her one quickly on the lathe and off she went casting spells on her brother. The next day she...
  4. All Aboard! | Custom

    Last call to board for an awesome sleeping adventure. This bed is a variation of my standard train bed. Just changed the colors and graphics up a little. It was completed in December 2010. It was one of the Christmas order. It has a real working light with a three stage touch sensor on the...
  5. Cupboard Under The Stairs

    We turned the storage space under the stairs into a play / mischief space for the kids. Reframed structure to allow the arched 2nd enterance. Both Harry Potter (cupboard under the stairs) and Narnia (one enterance is at the back of the wardrobe, with lamp post) themed. Walls inside are for...
  6. Harry Potter Style Wand

    My 9 year old Niece is a Harry Potter fan. I also just bought a 12" lathe. So what better way to break it in than to turn a wand for her. The handle is walnut and the wand is purple heart. The stand is part of a birch branch I had lying around. I turned a tenon on the wand and drilled a mating...
  7. Wands

    My Grandson, Bryan, came to visit for the week and wanted me to make a Harry Potter wand for him. The crooked wand is Crepe Myrtle. The straight wand is an old venetian blind rod. Details of the build with more photos are here.
  8. Magic Wand and Case

    Hi folks :) I haven't participated in a while. Spring and summer rolled in and it was too hot to be in the workshop, then I ended up spending most of my free time working on my old car through the summer. I made this for my younger son's birthday. He is, of course, a fan of Harry Potter, and...
  9. Luna Lovegood's wand ... sort of.

    I received an e-mail yesterday asking if I could make the wand in the attached photo. So I gave it a try. I went off the picture and a lot of guess work. I hope it works for them. I made it from a 1" diameter oak dowel I had laying around the garage. It's about 12" long. It took me about...
  10. Christmas Gifts Delivered

    Well even though I still have to deliver a few more Christmas gifts to friends and family over the next few days most of them are done. Here are a few of things that I made. The first is based of the Carmichael Workshop Holiday Video I made this one a little bigger and wanted to maximize the...
  11. Wands for Harry Potter Party

    So, a few years ago, my oldest son asked for a Harry Potter party. My wife said, "Let's make wands for each of the kids to take with them." She showed me some cheeze-doodle pintrest wands made from dowels, paint, and glitter. They weren't cool. So, I dug into my scrap woods and found a bunch...
  12. 17" Wand produced from boredom. (SOLD)

    This is what happens when it rains and I get bored. Just garbage pallet wood, stained and painted. This cured about 3 hours of my boredom. I put it on ebay as soon as it was done. You can find it here.
  13. Magic Wand

    My nine-year old grandson recently discovered Harry Potter and is deeply into the second book. I made this wand for him from padauk (that's what Lee Valley had in stock when I went looking). It felt so good in the hand that I left it unfinished. The Certificate of Authenticity was just for fun...

    The NOT Elder Wand My Grandson Bryan came up to visit this week. He knew I made canes and asked me to make him one. After talking with him and his mother we decided he'd much rather have a wand. He's very animated and energetic (read HYPER) so for the first 10 minutes he was full of ideas and...
  15. Wood & Lumber
    I bought some soild mdf 2"X4"X8' boards today (yeah I know, weird stuff there right?) I only gave a buck a piece . now I want to use them for frame type work on my workshop cabinetry or tables. Having only used sheet type mdf, should I be wary of any kind of issue popping up with this stuff...

  17. Designing Woodworking Projects
    My desk at work is made from wire shelving, with 1" dia. vertical rods. The rods also have grooves cut all the way around, about every 1". Here's a really good close-up of someone assembling the wire shelving: http://www.dsinj.com/Portals/60571/images//Nexel%20005.jpg I want to add some...
