  2. Hand tool caddy

    I built this hand-tool caddy as a way to practice some hand-tool skills (proud dovetail pins and through tenons, half-blind dovetails, string inlay) and to have a convenient and portable tool cabinet that would not take up too much space when sitting on a workbench. The cabinet is walnut with...

  5. Frames that started as a box

    Originally, I'd planned on making a veneered box after reading, "A Box That Earns Its Stripes" Fine Woodworking #207. After seeing how incredibly complex it would be, I lost steam and aborted the mission! I ended up making 16 4" x 6" frames with the veneered strips that I'd cut. I've...
  6. Walnut Executive Race Car

    Here's something I've been working on recently. I've been wanting to do an executive style toy (read: not for the kiddos) race car that had racing stripes for some time now. I got a fantastic piece of Claro Walnut that was just begging to be used for such a piece :) I made some cuts and used...

    Red race car I made for my sister in law. The body is Padauk, with Holly and Ebony inlays and finished with 3 coats of tung oil. The eyebrow is a separate piece of Padauk that runs across the rest of the grain of the car to help it stand out a bit. Ran into a lot of trouble with the Padauk...

    Here's my latest intarsia project which has special meaning to me and more to my wife. She became very attached to our Chesapeake Bay Retrievers; Cocoa and Pebbles. The last of the two passed away earlier this year so I wanted to make a gift for her to bring back warm memories of Pebbles. I...

  18. Holly and Cherry Lidded Bowl

    This is a Holly and Cherry bowl made from a Holly tree downed in the storms of 2004 in Florida. This piece of Holly darkened and developed some unique grain colors and patterns, probably as a result of being cut during the summer and not drying quickly. The Cherry came from my neighbor's yard...
  19. Boston Red Sox Marquetry Hanging

    I was asked to make this as a gift for someone who is a Red Sox fan. I figured this would be a good project to take on to help increase my marquetry skills. I think one thing that certainly helped was the fact that it is a very large piece at 24"x24". This was also done using an X-acto knife...
