  1. Zebrawood Jewelry Box

    This is a zebrawood box I finished recently. The top frame, corner dovetails, hinges and feet are walnut. The top insert is double bookmatched veneer sliced from a piece of walnut burl attached to 1/8" BB plywood with contact cement. The inside lining is purple ultrasuede. I used an Incra...
  2. Two boxes using the Incra jig

    These are two small boxes made with the help of Incra's Ultra lite dovetail jig. I have been making lots of sawdust and only these two boxes remain. I've learned a lot and owe much of my learning progress to internet friends who guided me thru the process.
  3. ZONK !

    I couldn't help myself. I just had to make a red and black Jewelry Box. The red wood is called Red Heart from South America, and the black is Wenge from West Africa. These are the natural colors of these woods. As usual I do not use any stains. If I want a box to be a curtain color, I'll use a...
  4. Itty Bitty Blackbutt Box

    This little dude is made from spotted gum and blackbutt, with half blind dovetails made on the Incra LS Positioner I wasn't going to make a box at all, I literally cut one joint just for some b-roll in a video, but then I figured as it was all setup I'd may as well keep going. Not bad for a...
  5. Keepsake Boxes

    I have been practicing with the Incra Jig and made some boxes for friends. Kind of a random mix of wood - some hickory, some oak, some mahogany and some poplar. Nowhere near perfect yet, but I'm getting better each time.
  6. ZONK II !

    YUP another Double-Double Dovetail Jewelry Box … Purple Heart and Maple I make a lot of jewelry boxes with the main wood Maple and the trim Purple Heart. One is in the main signature photo on our web site. One day while pondering a Red Heart and Wenge box, I asked the little woman what she...
  7. Learning to use an Incra Jig

    Made this box in order to learn how to use the Incra Jig system that I got as a gift. Box is maple and walnut with a wenge handle. Obviously used box joints for construction. Floating panel in the box base. Finished with 4 coats of tung oil (real stuff, not vanish blend). Would like to learn...
  8. Learning the Incra Jig Round 2

    This design comes from the Incra project book (kind of). It was a joint effort with my wife because she wanted to learn how the boxes were made. I would post her picture but then you would never look at the box. The box is made of Padauk and curly maple and finished using real tung oil...
  9. Jewelry Box

    This is a jewelry box I made this week as a gift for our Christian Education Director as a going away present. Most will recognize the Incra Jig work in the dovetailed corners. I still have the inside to finish, I wanted to get some pictures before it got out of the shop tomorrow eve. A mix...
  10. 3 Level Jewelry boxes, with cornerpost dovetails

    Here are two more jewelry boxes that I just finished up. A friend of mine saw the first one that I did and asked if I could build one for him to give to his wife as an anniversary present. I decided to build two, so that I could utilize my setup time better for each step in the process, and so...
  11. Buffalo Bullet Pencil Holders

    A long time in posting anything new. Well, I got a few things done. We are going to be going to Pigeon Forge this week and we are setting up a booth. Here are some new items for us. Buffalo Bullet Pencil holders: These were first introduced at a Worlds Fair at the turn of the 20th century...
  12. Cherry and Walnut Jewelry Box

    This box was a lot of fun to make and it provided me with some new challenges. The wood was from some salvaged trees that I milled on my bandsaw. The cherry tree was victim of the power company right-of-way crew and the walnut was a casualty of hurricane Rita. This was my first attempt at...

    I would like to make a 6 inch square post to mount an outdoor lamp to. I would plan to use cedar or redwood. I guess I could buy a 6 inch square post, rip it lengthwise and rout out a channel for the wiring, but I think a post this size would be expensive. Would it work to laminate several...

    I was curious as to how you guys sand your end-grains and edges on your projects. I recently made a couple of prayer kneelers as gifts, and I rounded over all the edges with my router - i had trouble sanding them down with out deforming the perfectly round edges. Any tricks you guys use? Also...

    I would really love to build an enormous crosscut sled to compensate for big board cutting. My problem is my table saw. Don't get me wrong, nothing beats a 300 dollar TS for 200 bucks (results of treating a certain under appreciated Home Depot employee with a little respect) I love the thing...
  16. Jigs & Fixtures
    I'm about to build my first router table (and hopefully it will last me a long time). I've been looking at different fence systems, and was all set to diy a simple fence with a diy micro adjustment. Then I came across the Incra range. I primarily will be using the table for dados, sliding...

    I have the Incra Jig Ultra which I have not used in over 20 years. I have pulled it out to use again and have had a senior moment. I just do not remember how to use it. The video is long gone. I have searched Utube and and every where else I can think of but have not found it. Any help would be...

    I am contemplating buying an incra Jig for my table saw and for a Router table I am planning to make. does anybody have any information that would change my mind, I can only find good vibes which is making me think that this is the way to go. I am looking at their table top for the router table...

    I have two items that are surplus to my current needs: -Prazi Chessmate dovetail jig with the set of three (unused) router bits. Includes instructional disc. I got a screaming deal on a Leigh jig shortly after I bought this and never used it. The jig sells for $100 and the bits go for $60 on...
