  1. Projects End grain cutting board with twisted isometric inlays

    This is an end grain cutting board with a base of walnut, with multiple inlays of mahogany, cherry and maple (also with the end grain up). The inlays were applied in four gluing rounds. In real life the inlays seems to 'float' above the darker walnut base - perhaps it is visible in the image...
  2. My first post!

    Here's a clock I have been working on for the last month. I got the turquoise on ebay in the form of 18" necklaces for a couple of bucks each. After pounding the turquoise into various consistencies from pebbles to powder I super glued it into imperfections in the white oak. I also took dental...

  8. Bubinga box with Celtic design inlay

    I was happy to find a bit left in my bottle of scotch after finishing the inlay! It took multiple steps cutting and setting the inlays in the right sequence to reach the desired result.

  10. Rustic Pine table w/ inlayed barb wire and horseshoes

    I made this table as a gift for my aunt and uncle. This summer they decided to completely gut out and redesign the interior of their horse/camp trailer. During one of my visits, I "suggested" in conversation that the plain white camper table needed replaced with a western themed table because it...

It is constructed of black walnut with secondary wood being poplar. I know I have combined furniture periods...

    For mothers day this year I made my mom this juniper wall hanging with turquoise inlays.

  15. Lacewood and Buckeye Burl with inlay

    This Treasure Box was a lot of fun to build. I had never worked with either of these woods. They were opposites in texture and density. The Lacewood is very dense and can be brittle if you're not careful when you cut it. In contrast, the Buckeye Burl, is very soft and dusty. It also has a very...
  16. Router Guide Jig

    I've never seen a router jig using this method, so I hope I'm not stealing anyone's design. I cut strips and used small pieces to separate them 1/4". I prefer this method over routing a slot. The two "X" marks are solidly glued 90 degree joints. The two then slide together as shown. The clamps...

    Board - sapele and maple. Inlays - cherry, padauk, walnut. I had fun trying to finish using shellac. Sapele have big pores while maple does not. almost two weeks of frustration (even tried French polishing - unsuccessful due to luck of patience). End up sanding down to bare wood (shellac appears...
