  8. Artist Box

    I saw this idea on Lumberjocks and thought it would be a great project to make for a friend. Something that is fairly compact that she can take around and setup to paint when she feels inspired. The box is actually made of poplar. I chose poplar simply because I like the look of it, its easy...
  9. Magnets & Secret Compartment for my Handgun!

    I had two goals for this project. First, upgrade our keychain holder that hangs by our front door. Second was to store and hide my handgun when it isn't in my pocket. Goal #1 was accomplished by building a 12×18 x 5" keychain holder made of cherry. It is finished in a couple coats of Deft...
  10. Key Ring Cutting Boards

    My latest "goofing off in the shop" idea was to create something I could give with my cutting boards to people so that they could remember my shop name and matching website. I am actually planning ahead on this one as I am working (sloooowly) on the website, and am just getting ready to order a...

  13. Exotic wood "Sampler" name keychains

    This is a great way to show off all those exotic scraps you've been saving. BECKY is Amboyna Burl, Pau Amarello, Purpleheart, Zebrano and Paduak woods on a Walnut substrate. I stock over 25 hardwoods of exotic and domestic origin, so there are always little bits that need rescue from the landfill.

  18. More "Pen"dants

    Yes here are more "pen"dants I really do like these kits. The other reason for these is it is teacher appreciation week next week at my daughter's school and the PTA has asked for donations to give out to teachers and faculty. So the first two pens you see here are on the way to the school. The...
