  1. A lacewood mox for Father\'s Day

    I recently watched the series of videos on FWW about box-making - the one where you cut the lid off with the tablesaw…. so I decided that's what I would make my dad. I have had a piece of lacewood hanging around, waiting for this. I made the accents in walnut (and made a throwaway jig to cut...
  2. Wood Flower Vases

    Another project built on a whim. These are basically tubes with legs. The woods are walnut and lacewood. My intent was to dress up a standard drinking glass being used to hold flowers. Since the glass (hopefully) keeps the water from escaping, I figured finding a way to enclose the glass and...
  3. baby block

    A baby block I made for my newest nephew for Christmas. I got the Idea form fellow Lumberjock, High Rock Woodworking. The woods used are padauk, maple, and lacewood. Thanks for looking!
  4. First Humidor I've made

    Made this humidor as a gift for my brother. First time making a box with a lid. Not nearly as easy as it seems, but I'm happy with the first attempt. Woods used are Peruvian Walnut, Lacewood, and Maple.
  5. Potato Bin

    This is a potato bin I just finished yesterday. It is made from solid cherry with lacewood inlay and accents. The inside bottom is just cherry slats and the back has holes drilled in it for air flow. I had a hell of a time with the angles involved in this project. Getting the top piece angle and...
  6. Bandsaw box #7

    Made for a dear friend who survived breast cancer.
  7. Tea Box

    Once I made the knitting box for my fiancee, I could tell my Mom was a bit jealous when she saw that. I thought, you know… I'm going to make something really nice for mother's day and thought that a tea box would be the perfect choice. I did some research and found a website called Boxes by...
  8. 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...
  9. Lacewood Bowl

    This is a bowl turned out of Lacewood. It is 5.5″ in diameter and 2″ tall. It is finished with the EEE Ultrashine Cream and ShellaWax combo. Although I'm happy with the final result it was 'iffy' going. I found the wood to be very brittle which led to a lot of problems with tear out in the end...
  10. Cardigan Style Cane

    Cane with Cardigan style handle of Lacewood. Maple shaft with Walnut and Maple spacers and Maple butt cap.
  11. Sewing box in walnut and lacewood

    Like many Lumberjocks, my favourite things are boxes. This is my wife's sewing box and it's one of her favourite things. The Lacewood is, I believe, quarter sawn London Plane (Platanus x hispanica?). There appear to be other timbers with that same name. I used the Leigh jig for the dovetail...
  12. Pencil Boxes

    Two pencil boxes here. I made these as an experiment with box joints on the WoodRat. As you can see, you have to pay attention so you get the innies to match the outies on all four corners (I wasn't). This is a very easy joint with a WoodRat. The tops are cut from a piece of lacewood and...
  13. Northwest License Plate Frame

    I figured since I made the first, I needed a second for my car, and to help promote myself. I originally was just gonna add "West Coast Woods" and maybe a phone number or website on this, but then thought I should show off a little more creativity than that. The logos are of my favorite sports...
  14. Crab Butter

    Have you ever had high hopes for a project, took your time to do it right and give it that little extra, only to have it come out a few sandwiches short of a picnic? Well, this is my entry. I decided I would try out a larger pattern with the plugs I've been experimenting with and this is the...
  15. Silky Oak Bowl

    This is a shallow bowl turned from silky oak; I think its marketed as lacewood in america. this one is turned with a bead on the rim. This is the first project I've used my light tent with. it made a big difference but I'm still learning how to get the best results with it. 180mm across by...
  16. Charles Rohlfs 1898 Desk Chair v3 Lacewood

    A while back I went to the local hardwood supplier to pick up some Ash for my Ash & Walnut Three Leg Chair. They had a real nice piece of Lacewood strategically propped up against the check-out counter. This was the first time I had seen Lacewood. Their plan worked. I went home with the...
  17. For a Friend of a Friend

    I finished this urn a couple of months ago for my neighbors' friend, who had recently lost her mother. I made one for his wife who passed in 2011 and was honored that he liked it enough that he trusted me to do another for his friend. Much like the first time, he said it could just be a simple...
  18. Trinket / Jewerly Boxes

    Inspired by Andy's tutorial on box making I decided to use up some of the small pieces of exotic woods I had laying around. What fun! The first one I made using Lace Wood for the box, Marble wood for the lid and oak bottom. The second one is Lace wood for the box, Blood wood for the lid and an...
  19. Lever-Action Boxes

    These boxes were made of lacewood (silky oak) with mitered joints and birch keys. The top is opened by pressing down on one end, which makes the other end flip up an inch. Was a great learning experience, and the path is detailed in my blog Yes, the miter joint is awful in the closeup (I would...
  20. More Trivets

    Some more trivets like I have done before. The woods used are Zebrawood, Lacewood, Redheart, Padauk, and Ambrosia Maple. Hope ya enjoy and thanks for checking them out!
