  1. Locking (liquor) jelly cabinet

    I rent my summer cabin 4 weeks a yr, so I wanted a way to not box up the liquor & drag it to basement every year. My table is oak & I had 750' of pretty Peruvian walnut flooring strips I paid for but never used. So I found a plan for jelly cabinet & modified it. I wanted the door to fit in a...
  2. Bowl of 120 segments

    Hello friends. Today I have finished my new project. It is a large bowl that consists of 120 segments. For the segments I used pine and the insert was made from bog oak. The bowl size is 290mm from the top, from the bottom 160mm and the height 170mm. In the end, I covered it with oil. Who is...
  3. Burr oak workbench

    Decided to upgrade my workbench this year. My previous bench has been a workhorse for the past five years, but over that time how I work and the projects I'm focusing on have changed. In response, I decided it would be easier and better to build a new bench instead of modifying the previous...
  4. Cubby of Boxes

    Got my gifts ready! I liked my Asian Box so much i decided others should have one. These all have salvaged Pine in them, along with either Walnut or Mahogany. I got to use up a lot of short drops and i have to say they were a sheer pleasure to build! All are finished natural with a clear...
  5. Knockdown Chair Fathers Day Gift 2013

    I Made one of these chairs a few years ago with some scrap wood. Wasn't the greatest but everyone seemed to love it and wanted one for themselves. I finally got a little more time and figured it would make a great fathers day gift for my dad. Chair is made from Cedar Deck boards. Name was traced...
  6. Simple Reliable Sliding Dovetail Housing Guide

    For the past 20ish years I have challenged myself to make stuff with wood that does not require screws or nails. It's just a mental challenge I enjoy. Dovetails, mortise and tenons, and sliding dovetails are my friends in this challenge. The problem is, sliding dovetails are usually a pain...
  7. Padauk, Zebrawood and Walnut Jewelry Box

    Solid padauk and zebrawood top with sliding dovetails for the walnut breadboards. The sides are also solid padauk with sliding dovetails into what kind of amounts to a walnut stile (not sure what else to call it). Maple box joint drawers.
  8. Birdhouse Night Table

    Here's another craft taken from the pages of a catalog. I made mine of clear pine. Pine because it will be painted, white, and clear so that no knots bleed thru. This was a lot of fun to make especially since the drawers in the houses do work… I did not get install the knobs when I took this...
  9. Curved Jewelry Cabinet

    This started out with a badly warped piece of plywood left over from a remodel. I decided to use it as is after failing to straighten it out.The ply formed the top bottom and both sides. The I made the door to fit the curves. The exterior and the door panels are white washed and varnished, the...
  10. Pair of Bongo Cajons

    [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] My dear wife showed me a picture online of a $40+ box in a catalog and asked if I could make her one or two for her class at school, (she teaches general/choral music K-5.) The catalog called it a 'Bongo Cajon'. It's a cajon that is bongo sized and open on the...
  11. Barn Wood End Table

    I luckily stumbled across an add for barn wood on craigslist. This barn had fallen in Southern Illinois in a storm and the guy was selling mostly its oak framing pieces. The pickings were slim when I got there, and I mostly wanted the old faded red roof boards. He let me take all I could haul...
  12. Campsite Family Sign

    While camping in the Adirondacks a couple years back, we found a large deadfall Birch with the bark still intact. Needless to say, I was able to salvage two large pieces of bark, one which eventually became this sign. The bark is glued to a piece of scrap OSB, the letters in local Maple...
  13. His and Hers Walnut Spiral pendants

    I was using the scroll saw to cut out a spiral pendant for my friend Mike when to my surprise… The part I was cutting out to make the spiral came out in one piece! So I set to making it a pendant for his fiance so they could be all wrapped up in each other :P
  14. corner cherry computer desk

    The two tops are mdf. The shelf in the back is for the tower and is adjustable so the power switch and cd/rom drive are accessible from the top. It is kinda obsolete with everyone going to laptops and touch screens but I still like the design.
  15. Another Pair of Moulding Planes

    After having successfully finished my first set of small wooden planes I made another pair of concave and convex planes with a bigger radius of around 47mm. In the photos you can see completed mouldings in a test piece of spruce. The last picture shows my hardening equipment. In my first...
  16. My style of Band Saw Boxes

    I have been making band saw boxes for just over a month now and I started out copying everyone elses designs. Well, I think I have decided to go with the DR. Seuss theme for my boxes. Or, a furniture design. I think that I am addicted to these little guys. The green one is a Buckeye burl cast in...
  17. My very first bandsaw box!

    Seeing several of the bandsaw boxes I got the urge to try one. I used a chunk of Circassian Walnut I had left over, and proceeded to make just about every mistake possible in the construction.Learned a lot doing it, such as I need to get an 1/8" blade for my band saw, cut the front slice off...
  18. My first go at a goblet

    My brother has been asking me for a while to make a tankard for him. I thought a tankard was a bit boring so I decided to have a go at a kind of wine glass. Now, I turned the "glass" from one solid log from the garden and parted it off at the end. This did cause as small problem as the piece did...
