  1. Texas Pendants - Gorilla Glue finish

    Mesquite, 1/8" thick, 1" tall by 1" wide. Gorilla polyurethane glue finish buffed with steel wool. Made my daughter a Texas necklace pendant a couple years ago which she wore a lot but unfortunately lost. Preparing for a vacation she asked for a replacement so she could show her state loyalty...
  2. The Demo Jewelry Box

    I had been asked by several people for more details on the other similar boxes in my projects. Usually I don't make plans, at least those that are much more then sketches with some details scribbled down. Given the interest, I drew up a set of outlines with dimensions and posted them for...
  3. Black Walnut Jewelry Box

    I made this last year and gave it to my teen daughter for Christmas. Simple lines, but I like it. Satin Spray Laquer Finish
  4. Jewlery Box (Oak, Walnut)

    This jewelry box was made from 1/2" Oak and 1/4" walnut that I planed down from a larger board. I used 1/4" solid oak to build the drawer sides and ply for the bottom. I think the contrast in woods is my favorite feature and I hope my fiance loves this little "heirloom" as much as she claims to...
  5. Jewelry Chest

    With plans from canadianhomeworkshop.com I created this Treasured Chest for my oldest daughter's 16th birthday. Made with walnut and cherry, this (approx.) 12"x12"x6" chest was a great challenge. I certainly bettered my skills with the curved drawer fronts and precision required for the drawer...
  6. Dust Storm

    I made this box for my daughter-in law, Jenna, as an anniversary gift. The body is Bloodwood, also called Satine, and the medallion and handle are Myrtlewood. The splines and dividers are Maple. The finish is lacquer. The center picture is not very clear but I posted it anyway to show how I...
  7. Necklace Cabinet

    I made this for my wife this Christmas, pleased with the way it turned out. It is made with leftover oak flooring, the panels on the doors are cherry plywood, finished whole thing is finished with Livos oil. Things I am happy with: It is custom made so fits perfectly in a spot in our bedroom...
  8. Jewelry Box of Cherry, Purple Heart, and Zebra

    Hello Everyone, As you Can see, I am new to thsi forum. I am relatively young but enjoy woodworking immensly. Here is a box I made for my girlfriend. The sides are rabbeted and the visible rabbet seam was dadoed to include an Zebra Wood inlay of sorts. The top of the lid was CO2 laser etched and...
  9. First Jewelry Box

    Made this for a client to practice dovetailing. Through dovetails join the outsides, rabbeted half-blind dovetails join the drawer faces to the drawers. Hard maple with some African Mahogany trim. Finished with Tung Oil. Still debating whether or not to add tiny drawer pulls… (update-decided...
  10. Earring Tree

    This is an earring tree that I built for my wife's birthday. Pretty simple project, but certainly helps organize her jewelry.
  11. Jewelry Box

    This is by far the most complex item I've attempted. It is made of tiger maple and cherry, and is from the December Wood Magazine. Although I finally got it right, my learning process was thrown a curve by the design dimensions for the drawers being incorrect in the magazine. In the PLAN, the...
  12. Rose Vine Keepsake Box

    This was a project that was an experiment that sort of went wrong. I tried for the first time to take a scrolled inlay pattern, then fill it in with polymer clay and bake according to the instructions. At first I was very pleased with the results, then I looked closely. Yikes! The lid now has a...
  13. 'Sunset' a box for Rachel

    This won Third place in this LJ contest. See it here http://lumberjocks.com/awards/winter_2008/results/5 Another of my designs, this one is for my daughter Rachel. No special occasion…I just love her a lot. This box is Maple with Bloodwood. I went pretty extreme on the shaping with the grinder...
  14. White Tulipwood Ring with Spalted Maple Lining

    I received some veneer samples recently, and among a lot of pretty sheets was this one white tulipwood. I'm 90% sure that dye has been used here but it looks so natural and the white-on-white figuring has transitions that resemble a light bronze metal. I couldn't be happier with the finished...
  15. wooden jewelry

    I made this piece for my wife. I made some similar ones for our daughters that I wish I had also photographed. They are really just scraps of wood glued together with some patience, belt and drum and hand sanding. They are pretty fun as the shapes and look just evolve as I go. This particular...
  16. Corian Bracelet

    Hey Lumberjocks, this ain't lumber it's Corian and it is fun to work with. I acquired some pieces of this material from a cabinet maker, I use it sparingly. I was between projects and saw my small stash and wondered what I could make and thought of this. Most important my wife really likes it...
  17. Flamin' Bangle

    Here is a fiery bangle made from some absolutely fabulous Flame Box Elder. Set over 316 Stainless Steel, this size 7.5 bangle didn't make it 50 feet before it found a new owner… My wife! She snagged it and won't let go. Finished with CA and wet sanded to 12,000 grit using MM. PM me for a...
  18. Equatorial African BUBINGA - "Waterfall" figuring - Bent-wood Bangle

    OK this wood had to be bought in veneer form and man is it wavy and hard. No way I could bend it for a ring but I had some success with the circumference of a bangle being a bit easier task. I was surprised that hot water alone did a fine job of softening it…I thought I was going to need a...
  19. Jewelry Pieces

    I have been inspired by some of the cool rings and things posted here, so I made some jewelry of my own. The projects have been fun to work on. The pieces take so little material so these have been made of scraps and cut-offs from the lumber store, so I am not entirely sure I know what the...

    These necklace pendants were made for my daughter, daughter-n-law, and ex-wife as christmas gifts.The one with the chinese symbol was for my ex, and is made from cocobolo w/sterling silver inlay. The one with the celtic cross was made for my daughter-n-law, it's cocobolo with a mother of pearl...
