  1. Cape cod jewelry box

    Just finished the first of my four part jewelry box series called Boston The Cape and Island jewelry box. This one below is of Cape Cod with walnut drawer handles and made from solid cherry lined with blue velvet drawer interior
  2. Keepsake box with unique "wood pattern"

    This keepsake box was a commisioned item that I thought turned out kind of neat. It is Ziricote with Curly Maple for the top, lift and keys. I really liked the "lightning bolt" spalting design that was in the middle. You can even still see the little worm hole ! Dimensions are: 9×4 x 3 and...
  3. Curly Maple & Zebrawood Jewelry Box

    I posted this one because it is the first time I used Curly Maple and Zebrawood together like this and I really like it. Also because I thought the grain in the piece of Curly Maple really "popped". Dimensions: 12×8 x 4 Finished again with multiple coats of Watco danish oil and Black Bison wax.
  4. Walnut Music Box with Swiss Movement

    My father Stanley ventured to Switzerland a few years back and picked up an amazing musical movement. He then designed a box around it creating this unique piece. This one-of-a-kind box houses the Swiss movement, playing the song "Memories." In burl walnut with cherry accent this box features...
  5. Jewelry Box Times Deux

    I'm still playing around with different styles of boxes, although I'm generally committed to boxes with legs just because they provide a nice place to experiment with alternate construction methods and materials. These two boxes are identical except for the wood used on the corners. Dimensions...

    Latest addition to the prototypes. Steamed and Bent Wenge - shaped and polished with 9 step micro-mesh. Using Behlen Wood turner's finish and Behlen topcoat for these.

  9. Itarsia/Inlay Key Fobs and Earrings

    Here are a few samples of an inlay/intarsia kick I've been on this summer. I had an upper respiratory infection for several weeks which kept me partially confined to my house. I did manage some time in my little workshop each morning before it got too hot in the day. These are the results of...
  10. Art Fair Box #1

    I just finished up at an Art Fair here in Aurora, Il. I had some boxes in various stages of completion and I made a bunch more to fill the table. I didn't sell too much - it was kind of a artsy fartsy hippy dippy fair - alot of lookers and not many buyers. I did give out alot of business...
  11. Art Fair Box #2

    Small 2 drawer bandsaw box made from Ambrosia Maple. I liked the streak on the front and didn't want to mess it up with knobs or pulls, so I used a Forstner bit to make holes in the back to push the drawers out with a pinkie. Can't take credit for the idea, but I think it worked out well...
  12. Art Fair Box #3

    I found out that Leopardwood looks good accented with black. Again, the legs are stained with India Ink. Lid is Shedua and the handle on top is Macassar Ebony. I wanted to do a split lid so I used Soss hinges and to be sneaky, put the handle in the middle of the box. I think it looks pretty...
  13. Art Fair Box #4

    ZIRICOTE!!! I had a really nice board lying around for a couple of years and I couldn't find a project worthy of this amazing wood. So, I figured making a box for the Fair would be perfect. I had fun matching the pattern around the sides of the box, but didn't have enough left to make a top…...
  14. Art Fair Box #5

    Rainbow (Mineral Stained) Poplar sides and lid. Red Palm trim around the lid and Purpleheart feet. I wasn't sure about the Purpleheart, but my wife thought it looked good, so I went with it….. still not sure. Anyway, my two typing fingers hurt, so I will post the rest tomorrow. Thank you for...
  15. Death Valley

    This is a box design I developed after much trial and error. I wanted to design a box that invited people to touch it and to pick it up. With no sharp corners, it must be smooth and it needed to have an organic flow about it. And it had to be simple in design to showcase the wood itself and...

  17. Gemstone Box #112

    This box is the second of the series. Hopefully many more to come. The tile is tiger eye, black onyx and picture jasper. The primary wood is mesquite. Beautiful to work with. I used eucalyptus to back tile so it'll show on the inside of the lid. The pegs are bamboo and the lid is hinged with...
