    I made these for an old neighbor some time ago, Cherry, Jatoba, Maple, Walnut and Moradillo, double sliding dovetails on the end boards.
  3. I CAN READ THIS -IT'S BIG !

    Just a sliding block I made to hold 2 framing squares together to act as a large caliper . I made this from 7/16" oak flooring scrap and some jatoba offcuts . To lock the squares together I use a simple quick clamp which provides a good lock and lets me move the caliper without loosing my...
  4. Some Basic Bud Vases

    When trying to think of a project to make, I usually have in mind what I want to make, just not exactly a good idea of the style I'm after. It is at this point I usually Google "bud vase images" for ideas. Case in point are these bud vases. I looked at a lot of pictures and this basic design...
  5. Commemorative Rifle Display Case

    This project was commissioned by a gentleman whose son was killed in Afghanistan. The son had been collecting military rifles and needed a M1 Garand to finish the collection. The father completed the collection and will display it in this case. Our sincerest condolences on the loss of this...
  6. End Table/Chest For My Mother In Law

    My MIL saw the bamboo chests I made for the granddaughters and asked if I could do one for her to use between two chairs. She also asked for different woods. Top, drawer bodies, and "case" are Jatoba. Drawer fronts are some unusual Arkansas Black Cherry I sawed. Dimensions are 2'x2' x 20" tall...
  7. Lichtenberg Pattern Jewelery Box

    After playing with the wood burning technique introduced to me by Jim Jakosh I decided to put the results into a project. The overall outside box dimensions are 11.5" x 7.5". The top overhangs about an additional inch on each side. The top is 7/8" thick, but the steep taper makes it look a lot...
  8. Two more cutting boards

    These cutting boards are identical and were a LOT more complicated than any previous ones. The woods are: White Limba, Purpleheart, Black Cherry, and Brazilian Cherry. They were made for my Mother-in-Law and my wife's aunt for last Xmas. They LOVED them! Thanks for looking and as always, all...
  9. Trestle Bench

    This trestle bench was a piece I built at a local college woodworking course. The course was four full days so I took the time off work and spent the entire week working on this bench. That week has got me wondering if I can somehow take a few months off and get to the inside passage school of...
  10. The Best "Part" of My Shop

    Yes, purely the best part of my shop and life is my wife. How about you? She lets me have all the time in the world in my shop and do what I want. I said, I am making new cabinets. She said, okay. She said we are opening our own business. I said, great! I get to make the furnishings and she...
  11. Jatoba ( AKA Brazilian Cherry ) jewelry box

    This is a commission piece done by my shop partner Jim ( AKA RamMan ) all in jatoba. The drawers are 1/8" stock into 1/16" rabbets and dados. The main box is 1/4" stock. There are over 75 (we lost count) wooden pieces. There is no metal in the structure except a pair of pin hinges and the magnet...
  12. Jatoba Signal Flag Case

    Each type command in the Navy gets a Motto, displayed as naval signal flags. I work in medicine, so we use the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery's Motto - "Answering, Charlie-Papa;" this translates to "Steaming to Assist!" It is custom that each command present its departing commanding officer...
  13. Sinikka's Table

    This is a two shelf sofa back table and could also be considered a console table. The top is spalted Longhi with Lyptus bread board ends and Jatoba show tenons. The frame work is Cherry and assembled with mortise and loose tenons. The table supports (rafters) are laminated Eastern Maple and...
  14. Outdoor Bistro Table and Chairs

    Started these as a Father's Day present, finally finished them about a month ago. First time I've ever made chairs, and probably the last time too. Just about had my fill of mortise and tenon joints, and the Shopsmith mortiser is a bit of a bear to use in anything harder than poplar. All made...
  15. Picture Frame

    This is a frame I designed and built with Jatoba, Wenge and Bloodwood. The corners feature mortise and tenon joinery and bloodwood accents. Getting the splines around the corner edges to line up just right took a bit of doing. The picture with the frame around it is for display purpose only. It...
  16. What to do with offcuts?

    When I resaw with my TK blade I get these thin offcuts. My friend uses then as fodder for his thinness sander and then makes scale furniture from it. He uses a model makers 4" Proxxon Bench Saw blade with a 1/16" kerf. For those that claim accuracy & repeatability do not matter and laugh at...
  17. Jatoba and Curly Maple Cross Box

    This is becoming one of my standards. I don't normally copy boxes, but people love the cross boxes, so I make them.
  18. 24" Jointer Plane

    Big shops (50 guys) get big jobs (millions) which makes for lots & lots of off-cuts (big delicious). As an off hours hobbyist this is one of the very few good reasons to work in a large shop; that and creating monumental work as a team. Well, back when the city of Toronto amalgamated the...
  19. Jatoba iPad Stands

    Jatoba iPad Stands So I ordered some Jatoba 2×2x12 blanks (from Bellforestproducts.com) to make iPad stands for Christmas. With 2 blanks I was able to make 3 stands that are about 4L x 4W x 2H. I just trued up the blanks since they came a little rough and I used biscuits to align them for...
  20. Simple Jatoba box/urn

    Simple Urn made for a family member who is terminally ill. Made from Jatoba for two reasons: 1) I had some around and she wanted it made from wood I already had; 2) she lived in South America for her teenage years and Jatoba is native to where she lived. The top is an inverted shaker table...
