  1. Simple lift lid keepsake box with flush mounted magnetic catches

    This is just a simple little lift lid keepsake box for a gift. This was made in the style popularized by Doug Stowe. Box bottom is white ash with walnut keys and top is solid walnut. Top is rabbited into the bottom and held in place with two rare earth magnets inlet into the top and bottom...
  2. Second try at a hinged lid

    This small box is made from scrap pieces around the shop. Cherry box with mitered corners and red oak keys. Top and bottom panels are made from mdf veneered with lacewood. My first attempt at veneer, my second attempt with a hinged lid. The proportions are a tad "?" in that not much fits inside...
  3. Poison Ivy

    I made a picture frame out of cherry to safe guard a hand-made painting of Poison Ivy for my sister Erica. It has double hidden walnut keys in the mitred corners for reinforcement. It was much heavier than I expected with all pieces at 16lbs. It's finished with several coats of General...
  4. Chunky Slab-Lid Boxes

    These were the second pair of boxes I have made this year (at least before the snow fell). They are made of walnut with bird's eye maple slab lids. The keys are actually dovetail keys made with some leftover bird's-eye maple. Once again, my joinery is improving but getting better. Finished in...
  5. Key Organization

    Counter-top key organization, with drawers for mobile phone accessories (power banks, cables, etc). Body is made from leftover walnut pieces, drawers are constructed of cherry from a cabinet door. No mechanical fasteners, glue only. Finished off with 3 coats of amber shellac. Thanks...
  6. Hand Carved Jailer's Keys

    Three years ago my wife and I visited Zion National Park, Utah, USA for a few days during one of our touring holidays on the other side of the pond and one day after a nice hike, we stopped at Wildcat Willies in Springdale for some food. It was a welcoming place and I quickly made a new...
  7. Key Hanger w/ Shelf

    This was made from some live dge cherry i had laying around. I have no idea what type of wood the back piece is, i just really liked the elliptical grain pattern on it so i used it.
  8. Reclaimed timber picture frames

    Here are some picture frames made from reclaimed and scrap stock. I wanted to make 2 frames to house my son's self portrait lino prints. So I got to work on some smaller frames from cut-offs - all keyed mitres. The darker wood came up beautifully after a 'mahogony' stain and some Linseed Oil...
  9. Toy Keys from Real Cars

    Set of oversized wood toy keys for my grandson - they're about twice the size of real keys. We're into cars, so I took our actual car keys and cut each toy key with the same grooves, flats, and shape as the real keys. It was fun to make and kind of funny to put that detail into something a...
  10. KEYS HOLDER

    Shape and dimensions are determined by shape and size of the wall segment. How to turn simple board to something not so simple… if this reminds you on a chocholate - it is not by accident. Made of 16mm walnut board 49×14cm. I cut grooves 2mm deep on tablesaw, squares 30×20mm. The idea was to...
  11. Note Board

    If I remember correctly (the nice thing about getting old; if I lose my mind~ I don't miss it much) anyways; the plans for this came out of an old Woodsmith Magazine way back when it wasn't a colored edition. I have it hanging on the wall in the shop and thought it a good project for someone...
  12. Keepsake box

    Here is a box I made for my mother (she is Dutch). It is walnut with meranti corner keys. The lid is an antique dutch tile. I wrapped the grain around the box. She loved it. Finish is danish oil (I couldn't find dutch oil.. :) )
  13. Another Gift Box

    Here's another box I've made. I was given a stack of maple by a guy I work with, I made this to thank him. It is maple with cherry. The hinge is a floating pin. I was very happy with how this one turned out. My friend was appreciative and he says he's got some more free wood for me.
  14. Andy & Esther

    I built this box as a wedding gift to my best friends sister. Her and her husband are going to be serving as missionaries in 18 months and figured they might be able to travel with this easier than a stand mixer. This is the most in-depth box I've done to date. It was my first time to use...
  15. The "Tea Table", seemed like a good idea at the time.

    A very serious collector of Chinese tea collectables commissioned me for a "live edged" mesquite table in order to host his imported "burl" tea service. Project allowed me to venture outside the lines in creating a live edge piece with inset keys. In the course of design and re-design as well...
  16. First box

    I just got into woodworking. I've had a Shopsmith in the garage for years but never used it. I got a router for Christmas this year and I have been dabbling with small projects since. I built this box this week with miters and keys. I topped it with red oak. Finished with spray poly. I am...
  17. Decorative Key Holder

    I got ask by a friend to remake her a key holder in a specific design. I used a photo as reference to create this wall hanging key holder. I took the opportunity to incorporate metal into wood. I used an iron tube as the bases and an iron rod as the hooks. In order to hold the tube firmly for...
  18. Small Desk Organizer

    I spent last week at our Portland office for work. I knew about the trip for a month prior and decided I would take a few small projects as surprise gifts for my boss and a co-worker I've known for 3 years now. It was a nice diversion from what I had been doing in the shop not to mention...
  19. A few more cutting boards

    I know there are millions of CBs here, but I hadn't posted anything in a while. :D
  20. Leopardwood and Canarywood Boxes

    Boxes are great for learning new techniques so that they can be applied to larger and more complicated projects. They are also a great way to showcase your skills as a woodworker and an artist, because they can easily serve as a blank slate for your imagination. It can be fun to add certain...
