  1. BLOODWOOD HEART BOX

    Made this little heart box for the love of my life for Valentine Day. I made it on the bandsaw, I can't remeber where I got the plans from. The top pivots on a small dowel. I used multiple coats of Tung Oil for the finish.
  2. Mahogany Baby's bed

    To wake up in such a bed would be a dream even for royalty, though in this case the carver created it out of the love for his child. This original design by Boris is completely hand carved and turned out of mahogany measuring The design at the foot represents the evening star guarding over his...
  3. Sketchup Thorsen for you guys

    I decided to use the drawings included in the Thorsen plan to make a sketchup drawing as close to the original as possible. I don't know if everything is completely accurate, but it's pretty frickin' close, that's for sure. As you'll see, I also made one that is translucent and shows the tenons...
  4. Cutting Boards

    Here's a couple of end-grain cutting boards that I have made for gifts. The checkerboard one is for my sister this Christmas. I used Maple for the light squares, bubinga for the dark ones, and the middle is a bit of a mystery wood. I had a small slab laying around, not being used, and I...
  5. Display Coffee Table

    This table is built from solid red oak. The "display" part of it is made of plywood with black felt glued to it with 3M spray adhesive. The glass is 1/4" thick plate glass. The dimensions are 4' X 2.5' and 19" tall. The finish is Minwax Early American stain and Minwax wipe on poly gloss. The...
  6. Cigarette box

    Made this the other night. The box is made from oak, the lid is from a scrap of walnut. I found a log about three years ago. The log has been in the basement "drying". I cut a section about six inches long and then took a hatchet to it to get the rough shape for the box. Ran that through the...
  7. Oak Cabinet with two drawers

    This two-drawer oak cabinet was designed around three pieces of artwork; the beautiful inlays by Nelson depicting east coast lighthouses. The inlays were purchased at auction on eBay and re-framed in oak for the sides and back of the cabinet. The bottom drawer was custom-built with 5/8" solid...
  8. Mission Coffee Table w/ Slate Top

    This is the larger precursor to my matching end table. The coffee table used pocket holes instead of mortises to speed assembly but was otherwise built nearly identical. Each end panel has been scrollsawn and the top is 3/4" plywood covered with 12" slate floor tiles. I painted some wood buttons...
  9. Rolling Pin Idea

    I have been working on an idea for some rolling pins. My problem is that I am a one dimensional thinker whose mind resembles a flea market after an earthquake. Although I can get some of the stripes to line up, I am having difficulty figuring out how to align all of them. The strips are thin...
  10. Nanny Rocker

    Nanny Rocker at the Ninth Annual Texas Furniture Makers held at Kerrville,Texas. Chair was built using black walnut. Design was influenced by Scott Morrison.
  11. Step stool

    I made this stool in my fall semester of woods class at Wahoo High School. It took me about a month to do. I made it out of African mahogany. I used biscuit joints to connect the top and the legs. I used a Kreg to drill all of my pocket holes. I then covered it with tungsten oil.
  12. Angel Ornament

    A simple ornament that I made for my daughter as a Christmas present. Turned from silver maple, finished with cyanoacrylate. Brass wire run through hole drilled in center. Thanks for looking!
  13. Loft bed

    This is a loft bed that I built for one of my 3 kids. Guess what? Now I have two more to build ;). That's OK. It was a fun project. Went with stairs rather than a ladder because my kids inherited their clumsiness from their mother (he he…). For the desktop, I used an epoxy resin and am...
  14. Pam's final mantel

    This was a mantel constructed of cherry hardwood and cherry veneer 3/4" plywood…finished natural 4coats lacquer. I incorporated a Bose surround sound speaker system and mounted a 60" flat screen on a swing arm hanger…
  15. Plow horse relief carving

    This is my first relief carving. I was inspired by the power and motion of a drawing in an old art book. The carving itself is about 3" x 7" and is in a scrap of red alder. I apologize for the quality of the photography. I have been trying to improve the photos of all of my projects. This...
  16. Broken "Purple" Heart

    My Fiance's favorite color is purple and she picked out a chunk of wood from Woodcraft one day and left it with me to suprize her…Suprize!!! I broke it! One of the times when you wish you were wearing your face shield when you feel a bowl graze against your cheek as it flies by your head...
  17. Balls of Fun!!!

    Fun with new shapes! I have turned a ball shape on a christmas ornament. That was easy compared to these. With the posts for the upper and lower finials you have something to hold onto. Turning a ball, without having any tool marks where you held it ( i don't have a vacuum chuck) Is difficult...
  18. Poker Table

    This was the first poker table that I built for some friends and you can't see it in the pictures but it has fold up legs underneath it so that it looks like a solid table with no crease down the middle but folds up to be around 8" thick. Even though it is 5' tall you can roll it into just about...
  19. useful letter rack

    this letter rack is a simple project which can be made in an afternoon.its built from some old pine shelves most of the work was done with hand tools
  20. Flame box

    I thought I had uploaded this earlier, but I am mistaken! This is a box that I created to accentuate the "curl" in some curly cherry wood I found. This is one of my favorites. The wood is the real stand out here. The legs mock the curl in the cherry and are made of Bubinga. The lid is made of...
