  1. Hexagon Box in Two-color concept

    Actually, I have already made the part 2 of the Two tone hexabox but when I was about to post it, I was out from the server. The internet just close and I could not recover what I have done. I will PM Martin for that if he could recover back and post it as blog… If not sorry. I don't want to...
  2. Hibiscus Box

    A simple hexagon shaped box with a Hibiscus flower I stained onto the lid. This box was made out of bass wood.
  3. Another Hexagonal Shelving Unit

    My mother-in-law love the one I made for my son so she said hey will you make me one as well It's basically the same construction as my original project using 2×4 and using biscuit joints and glue to secure the joint This is a super cheap project but it is challenging if your saws and you're...
  4. Truncated icosahedron, uh, soccer ball, nightlight

    A few months ago I built a TARDIS nightlight for my son who is a fan of Dr. Who (see projects). My daughter, knowing her birthday was coming up, asked for a soccer ball nightlight. I laughed and told her that would be almost impossible to build (knowing that I had seen some balls built on...
  5. The Hexagon (remote control organizer)

    Apologies to Chuck Norris After seeing several hexagonal projects on LJ recently, I wanted to expand my comfort zone beyond rectangles. I've made several styles of desk/remote control organizers in the past and they have been popular sellers. Why not make a hexagonal organizer? The basics...
  6. Walnut and Yellowheart Hexagon Box

    This is another super ellipsoid box, this time walnut and yellowheart. The shape of the box was designed using Vectric's Aspire Software. The last few photos shows the process I used to inlay the 7 yellowheart hexagons. I first used the CNC router to cut the 7 hexagon holes in the walnut, next I...
  7. Hexagon organizer

    My sister wanted this for her desk at work. The glue up and clamping was a fun challenge! It was meant to hold pencils and other small stationary. The wood is something I'm having trouble finding information about. Carrilion(sp?) birch burl veneer on maple. It's a pretty wood in person, lots of...
  8. Adjustable hexagon cutting jig

    If you've ever make hexagon coasters or hexagon-faced drawers like I have, you know batching out perfectly identical hexagons can be a challenge. So I designed an adjustable hexagon cutting jig for the table to saw that can cut hexagons from 1 inch to 18 inches in diameter. The custom sliding...
  9. Lazy Susan

    Here is my first attempt at a lazy susan. Woods include walnut, sassafras, cherry, and silver maple splines It is roughly 17" across. It has around 50 pc of wood counting the splines. This was a christmas present that was started on Dec 23, so I cut it close but it was done in time. Pic 2: my...
  10. Hexagon Shelves

    Hexagon shelves I made for some very dear friends for their wedding present. Shelves are made of pine, cut on my chop saw set at 30 degrees. Very quick to cut with the help of an end stop! Used 1×5 premium pine from the orange store. Joints are glued and screwed, using a countersink to hide...
  11. The Hexagon Experiment

    This all started with the Yonico router bit forum discussion of late. I have six of these bits and several I had not used yet. I had wanted to try a birds mouth bit for some time and my Yonico bit is one of the untested. I was going to make a simple hexagon ring. On the router table it went...
  12. Laza Susan - Walnut

    Main board made of walnut, 41cm diameter, 23mm thick, finish food friendly wood oil. Bottom plate - 18mm playwood, 20cm diameter, finish 2 coats of spray laquer. Rotating mechanisam from E-Bay. I cut circles on bandsaw jig.
  13. Bird mouth bit hexagon trays

    These were from my blog on using the bird mouth bit to get easy to get perfect angles, clamp, and glue. These are about 2" high and 10" across the flats. First tray is zircote with a walnut burl bottom, second is Karelian birch burl with a white oak burl bottom. The trim and corners are...
  14. Hexagon Coasters

    I've been wanting to incorporate epoxy resin to a project, so I figured epoxy coasters would be a good place to start. Wanting to add a little flare, I decided to make hexagon coasters, using a hexagon cutting jig I made a while back (you can see the hexagon jig video here). To make the...
  15. Hexagon Cutting Jig

    There are several ways to cut a hexagon out of wood. You could use a table saw with a miter gauge, a band saw, miter saw, and so on. When you want to batch out several hexagons and make them all the exact same, it can get tricky. That's why I decided to build a simple hexagon cutting jig. The...
  16. Mid-century Nightstand with Hexagon pattern drawers

    My goal was to build an original yet timeless nightstand. I had vision of a black carcass with hexagon pattern drawers, and a mid-century style base. I built it entirely out of ash wood, and I love how the grain really pops. In the video tutorial, I walk you through every step of making this...
  17. Propane Tank Storage

    Made this 3-legged hexagonal sort-of-Japanese-karabitsu to hold the tank for our little propane grill. I'm very happy I got the face grain of the plywood to flow around the corners. A hexagonal box actually uses less wood than a square box. A handy calculator I found on the web was able to...
  18. OCTOGON DISPLAYS

    Octogons made of beech, finished with walnut stain and nonglossy laquer. Purpose is to be used as display for various small things. Diameter is 65mm. Due saw hight limitation when 45 degree angled (when sawing on right side), I had to make simple jig for my tablesaw roller bed - so cut was made...
  19. Not your grandma's card table.

    Not that there's anything wrong with her table, this just isn't it. This is my first project with some mahogany that I got. I ultimately want to make a dining room table and thought this would be a good starter table. The construction is similar to the racetrack poker tables out there, but as...
  20. Box Joint Hexagons

    This originally started out as some shelves for a friend. My friend wanted some hexagon shelves. For some reason, I figured it made sense to make them in the most complicated way possible. I made up a jig and made a small one first. Then, I up'd it to full size. Once I completed it, I decided...
