  4. Contemporary Coffee Table and Chair

    Firstly I would like to say this project was heavily inspired by one of my favorite designers here in Western Australia, John Goulder. in 2007/2008 I went to a exhibition that was showcasing his latest works and there was one piece that really stood out to me, the "AMORE MIO LOW CHAIR"...

  6. Chopping block

    Finally decided to make a chopping block out of some scraps, using Jarrah, Tasmanian Oak and Merbau. I'd figured out the basic "how to" and just went ahead. I particularly like the light flecs in the Merbau grain. Finished with vegetable oil. As a side note I used Tite Bond II and I'm not sure...
  7. Razee-Dazzle Fore Plane

    I decided to build a real plane. This one took some what more than three hours. This 17 inch Razee style fore plane is made of oak and Jarrah. The oak creates an infill surrounded by Jarrah sides, sole and tote. I used Kernov's style wedge holder and looked to Phil Edwards to see how this thing...
  8. Intarsia Pelican

    This Intarsia Pelican was another joint venture. She did most of the work and was in a crunch for time at the end so I joined in. Here are pictures of it before and after finishing. We made it this year in June and it was supposed to be a birthday gift for her father, but was a monthish late...

    Hi all, Daughter #1's birthday is soon and I thought I would make her a box. It is similar to my first effort with a different colour scheme.

    This is my second Teleidoscope. I started with 3 pieces of 1 3/4X 10 mirrors taped together in a triangle.Then I selected this piece of red box elder for the tube and bored it to clear the mirrors. I machined the ends to hold the eyepiece and the crystal ball and then I fluted it. During the...

  20. Have you ever made checkers pieces?
