  1. Mahogany and tiger maple blanket/toy chest

    This project was the latest on the honey-do list. I built this as a toybox for my daughter Cecilia. The chest was built using African mahogany and tiger maple. I decided to put the new 1 1/2 hp motor in thew bandsaw to the test so I bookmatched all of the panels, including the top ands bottom. I...
  2. Kimber 1911 Display Box

    My life long friend and colleague retired after 32 years of service with the Fire Department. Instead of a gold watch, we all pitched in and bought him a Kimber Custom 1911 45 cal handgun. He is a gun collector and has always like the quality of the Kimber. I was tasked with creating a display...
  3. Did someone say something about sanding??

    After I recovered from the reaction to the lacewood on the last project - we decided that although we won't cut lacewood again we really liked the design that we came up with… so we decided to give it another go with something a little less risky. Back to our old standard - Curly Maple and...
  4. Take the neck ache out of your day with these beautiful Laptop Risers!

    I have noticed that many people are having neck problems, ie. stiffness and soreness, and terrible posture using laptops. The screen is set too low and if lifted up the keyboard is way too high. This usually works out okay for temporary periods of time but some people actually work on their...
  5. Votive Candle holder, off the cuff style.

    Made this for a buddy for Christmas, tried out some new design Ideas I had and am still not sure if I completely like it lol. Initials were done by hand using my colwood burner. The wood is Black walnut (with some nice blond streaks) all one board, maple and purpleheart. finish is 3 coats...

    I built 5 boxes commissioned by my sister to give as gifts for her company Christmas party, All of the boxes are constructed out of Maple and Walnut and the box lifts on top are scrolled from Ideas she had for each of her 5 employees. The joinery is half lap butt joints and the finish is 1 coat...

  9. Black Laquer Box

    This was a simple pine box made on a request by my mother. I used wood filler over the entire surface, and then 7 thin coats of black laquer. Sanding inbetween coats working up to fine steel wool. Then I painted the roses with model enamels and one last coat of clear laquer. This mirror...
  10. Hollowform bliss

    As I mentioned in my very first post, I saw these hollowforms with awesome finishes…the LJ responsible told me a bit about "Mohawk Laquer"... actually coached me through an entire hollowform..using his lathe, chisels and even wood! What a guy! Anyway, my last comment was "Guess whats next"...

    this is a 4 DRAWERS ASPEN JEWELRY BOX ..MADE OUT ASPEN LOG, AND ALSO FINISHED WITH 3 COATS OF LAQUER.
  12. Departure Box

    Another going away box but this one turned out to be my favorite so far. Zebrawood, black walnut, and African Blackwood for the splines and border. Finished with 3 coats spray laquer and 5 coats wax. Thanks for looking.
  13. Cutting board

    Well, everyone else made one. So I did too :) This one is also not based on the wood whisperer design. It is made from maple, walnut and cherry. I finished it with mineral oil, then I melted some bees wax into the mineral oil in the microwave to make a kind of paste and applied that on both...
  14. First Candle holder

    This is my first candle holder and just a tad different from others I made it higher and added what I call struts underneath I made it for an Engineer Captain and wanted it to be slightly reminiscent of a bridge but still feminine (as she is a woman) I think it turned out ok but I will make...
  15. Bamboo Cutting Board

    I know I'm not a card carrying, bona fide member of the cutting board club; all of my many previous efforts given as gifts look very pedestrian compared to some of the marvels I have seen here on LJ. Yet to tell the truth, I usually prefer side or edge grain looks and subtle flourishes rather...
  16. K-cup holder

    Just a quickie here.We got a Keurig for Christmas and of course a whole variety of coffee flavors. The cardboard boxes were all different sizes and difficult to deal with. I needed some storage/parts bins for the shop and since they come 36 or so to the box. The rest they say is history.I made...
  17. dining table and chairs

    The table and chairs were constructed out of sapele and ash using solid panels in place of conventional legs. The finish is pre catalysed lacquer which was brushed on. I was looking to make something unique but which could take plenty of knocks over time and still look good.
  18. Gun Cabinet with Hidden Compartment (also amazing birds eye maple veneer)

    This was my first commissioning for a furniture piece. The proud parents of a college graduate wanted to give their son something that would last. First of all, I have to give credit to fellow LJ'er Jonathan Szczepanski as I used his Hope Chest design as my inspiration. The project...
  19. My most elaborate box yet.

    I am very proud of this box, I just completed it for a buddy who ordered it for his girlfriend as a Christmas Present. There are a lot of flaws but I had so much fun making it and learning as I went that it was well worth it. The box is constructed of African Blackwood and Slightly Curly...
  20. Double-Double Dovetail Jewelry Box

    I have been making this box design for about 12 years. A lot of you will recognize the tool used as the INCRA JIG for the double-double dovetail corners. The corners take about three days alone to finish. I fully assemble the box and then cut it open on the table saw. An 1/8 of an inch in the...
