  1. Woodcarving
    Im looking for a source of Southern Magnolia for a special project for my older brother. I want to make the tote and knob out of it since the tree has very deep meaning to me and my siblings. It can be greenwood or have some sapwood inclusion ( which it normally does I understand). Thank you...
  2. Powder room redo

    Our circa mid 60's powder room had never had a redo, still sporting 1" pink floor tiles, a flimsy build-in vanity. The wife went to visit her mother for a week and I set out to surprise her! Ripped it all out, new underlayment and tile, wainscoting, built a new "table" on which to set the new...
  3. Father/son walnut knife scales with mosaic pin

    Second video making the scales for a father/son knife with a custom mosaic pin and walnut from their family farm: (First video here: )
  4. Celtic Cross Electric Guitar

    CELTIC CROSS ELECTRIC GUITAR Made in honor of my employer who is from Ireland … The top half of this Irish cross design guitar body was constructed using reclaimed cherry wood. The bottom half was constructed using reclaimed barn oak with the center being oak heartwood. The clover (Shamrock)...
  5. Blanket chest

    This is a blanket chest that I made for my wife for our anniversary. It is made from cherry and silver birch and has a cedar bottom. The bread board ends were a little more challenging than anticipated but patience won. I was torn between making the panels flat or raised but as you can see I...
  6. Pine Slab coffee table -- first project!

    This is actually the first piece of furniture that I've built, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! This table came to be because of a Christmas gift that I helped my friend build for his wife. She wasn't happy with their current coffee table, so we split a bourbon barrel and made a...
  7. Maple Coffee Grinder

    I've been working on this guy for a little while, in between a million other things, but I'm finally done! I used 3 coats of tung oil for the finish, it shouldn't get much abuse and I think the oil really makes it look good. I took it for a test run tonight, 20gr of some Caveman White Gold...
  8. The O-Mazing Race

    I created this trophy for a scavenger hunt at the school that I teach at. The O! is a city wide design in Omaha, Ne. It consists of four species of wood. They include Maple, Bloodwood, and Black Walnut. If you look closely you will notice that the exclamation mark is actually floating, I did...
  9. Walnut Jewelry Box with Curly Maple Inset

    Walnut with curly maple inlay, dovetail corner posts also of maple. Quadrant hinges are the ones that I posted some months ago from A & H Turf Specialties. The top has mitered corners with a rabbit for a piece of Baltic plywood to which the inlay is glued from the top and the mirror from the bottom.
  10. Ash and Birch Shaker Table

    I needed to build a project for my Cabinetmaking course and a table drilled into my head. I had the choice of using birch, oak or ash. I love ash's grain pattern but the boards weren't wide enough for the top of the table and I didn't want to laminate several 4" strips. Skipping the oak, I...
  11. Lamp #3

    Hi everyone, Made this lamp from ricepaper, leftover pieces of walnut and oak. I initially made it as a birthday gift, but i like it too much to give away :). The Idea was to incoporate his company logo in the lamp on all sides, so it shines trough. I will have to make another one . It's again...
  12. Chinese Checker Board

    I made a Chinese Checker Board that can hang on the wall while storing marbles in the board. It's made of Maple and Redheart. Check out the YouTube video if you want to see how I did it… I also provided a drill template for anyone that wants to make one themselves...
  13. Spalted Heart(wood)

    Seems Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so having a few extra hours to squeeze in a little project, I grabbed my carving knife, a chunk of elm and a comfortable stool. My efforts in comfort being tantamount to the success of this project as I'm sitting out in my drafty barn with the...
  14. Wood & Lumber
    I've been removing the trim from the second story of my house and stripping all of the paint off(6 layers!). It's all black cherry, but I pulled one piece off that could either be cherry sapwood, or maple. It's a vast difference in color, as the images show. This cherry is almost blood red(110...
  15. Wood & Lumber
    I milled up a pretty large walnut, all live edge slabs. And it's all really unique with the sapwood grain and heartwood interchanging. I have no idea why it's different then most of the walnut I see online. (New to forestry, I built a chainsaw mill with a stihl 084 and a 42" blade. All because a...
  16. Wood & Lumber
    I have attempted to attach two pictures to this posting. The pictures are of wood floors in an 1850 Gothic revival home that I'm restoring. I'm trying to determine what kind fo wood the floors were made of. The first is in a bedroom the 2nd in a kitchen-the rest of the house is oak and heartwood...

    Lumber for the Top One of the hardest things about building anything here is finding nice wood. It seems that if you want anything better than standard construction lumber, you're up the creek. That's bizarre in a country that does so much logging and has so much nice exotic wood (I guess...

    Sketchup Model I had been planning on entering the LumberJocks Halloween Challenge. Anytime the prizes are given away randomly, instead of based on skill and craftsmanship, I'm all over that! But my wife didn't particularly want me spending a lot of time in the shop merely for the chance at a...

    Know your wood #1-Cherry Most people only talk about grain at the most superficial level of how it looks. We woodworkers enter the fibres. We tease the cells apart with the chisel's edge and search for weaknesses and strengths in the species. We want to know these intimate details so we can...
