  1. Ambient Accent Lamp - Maple and Khaya

    I went a little crazy with the chamfer bit on this one, but I really like the effect. I was able to build this using an offcut of soft maple and another leftover board of Khaya (African Mahogany) from an old project. My better half tells me she's not crazy about the maple grain on this one and...
  2. Shop coming along.

    Finally back in the shop. Added a pegboard and cutoff storage.
  3. Poor man's imitation of a Benji Reyes piece

    I really like Benji Reyes work. I think "Reyes inspired" would be an understatement in this case as I was aiming as close as possible to his table "Alalay Pilipit". Most of his pieces are (obviously) way beyond my skills, but this small table seemed like something I could try to imitate for our...
  4. Pair of Greene and Greene style clocks

    These are two Greene and Greene style clocks I built using the Wood magazine plans. The clocks are made using a ribbon Mahogany that truly has to be seen in person to appreciate. the chatoyance the grain gives off is beautiful. I built the Mountain Scene tiled clock per the plans but omitted the...
  5. Storage box for Milwaukee Compact Router

    I recently bought a Milwaukee M18 Compact Router, and since it's a tool I won't be using often, I decided to build it a storage box right away, so I wouldn't lose any parts before I have a chance to use it. Pine sides, about 1/2 inch thick, dovetailed, with 1/4 inch Baltic birch plywood...
  6. Khaya knob for spice grinder

    I have a CrushGrind coffee grinder I bought way back when they did their Kickstarter. I use it for grinding spices. Yesterday I dropped it and the plastic knob that came with it broke, so today I decided to fix that. I had a piece of Khaya (African mahogany) about 2×2x4 inches, and I chucked it...
  7. Surprise swap squares

    For the surprise swap in 2021, I made a set of squares for BigShooter. A try square, a miter square, a straightedge, and a box to hold them. The try square was first. Brass bar (inch wide stock, draw filed to clean it up) and African mahogany (aka khaya). Glued together with fish glue and...
  8. tea table

    kaya tea table I used a router table, a CNC router, a lathe and a tablesaw to construct this table in college. the top was cut from a CNC router and the 3/8" groove for the skirt was done on the same machine. it's actually incredibly boring to take all the fun out of your work, but it's...
  9. The Continental Divide

    The Continental Divide is a live edge waterfall style coffee table made of local book matched Black Locust with African Mahogany (Khaya, not local) bow ties and stretcher. Finished with lacquer. This is my first attempt at a table of this style and my first attempt at bow ties. I started this...
  10. Khaya bench and shoe rack

    I liked the elliptical bullseye pattern on this piece of khaya, which makes a nice target for the seat. I cut veneers so that the pattern would be visible on the top and bottom shelves
  11. Just for Fun a Greene and Greene Growler Tote

    This was a fun project. I've been wanting to make a growler tote for some time now. I finally settled on this design after considering several other concepts. Pillowing the ebony plugs was the most tedious part, there's 24 of them. Wood is Khaya. Finish is Man O War spar varnish.
  12. Should have just made a cutting board...

    I hadn't worked with khaya before. The idea was to apply the "one of a kind cutting board" concept from FWW article to a side table/tv stand/something to initially serve as a table in a corner. Once I applied the finish (Osmo oil wax), I realized that khaya has so much color in itself, that my...
  13. Finishing
    So I'm doing a Greene and Greene inspired cabinet and using Darrell Pearts recommended finish of general finish dye stains. I flooded with water And scuff sanded with 320 twice before applying. Im still having an issue with the dye stain raising the grain. How could I remedy this in the future...

    African Mahogany (Khaya), Black Locust, and Purpleheart Had to make one, everyone wants to…right? Anyhow I got a piece of African Mahogany (Khaya), some Purpleheart scraps from my uncle who says they, believe it or not, use this "stuff" for they're trailer beds to haul equipment on. He said...

    Finishing Exotic Woods: 1 Oily Problem My new video on finishing oily tropical exotic woods is out. It's part my article Pau Ferro verses Rosewood View on YouTube
  16. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I've designed this bench for my home, and I want to join it all using dados and rabbets, but I'm not sure if they would be strong enough. My concern is with people sitting on it, especially in the boxed section on the left. I will be using solid walnut. Will it work fine, or do I need to go...
