  1. Projects Christmas Ornament

    Received a request for a guitar Christmas ornament. Lasered, so no sense making just one. Other than made of wood, not what I’d consider a wood working project but it’s a good chance to try posting on this new platform.
  2. Projects In Progress
    Part I "Maybe" because I'm just winging it here, no real decision on what to do with my experiments. On to the story! Among the first things I tried with the wife's laser was cutting veneer. I always wanted to try creating something, anything, in the style favored by the venerable EarlS. I'm...
  3. Projects In Progress
    I make a number of boxes that I sell at the local gift shop. I typically will try various veneers to keep them interesting, but to get "cooler" I'll need to step up my game. Unfortunately, I don't have anywhere near the skill sets of the various marquetry masters on this site. I also don't have...
  4. CNC Woodworking
    SWMBO has lots of friends with dogs. Several dozen in fact. this year she saw a paw shaped, personalized, laser cut, wooden ornament that she wished she could give something like that. Well, being the magician that I am, and SWMBO's wish being my command, the next thing you know my new Atomstack...
  5. Jatoba ( AKA Brazilian Cherry ) jewelry box

    This is a commission piece done by my shop partner Jim ( AKA RamMan ) all in jatoba. The drawers are 1/8" stock into 1/16" rabbets and dados. The main box is 1/4" stock. There are over 75 (we lost count) wooden pieces. There is no metal in the structure except a pair of pin hinges and the magnet...
  6. Redheart pickle box

    Bought a 1' length of 1×6 red heart and skinned both faces at 5/16" to make the box. Plane & sand to 1/4". By design the box self locks when the lid is dropped in place. Once locked the box can be freely rotated without spillage. To put a little lightness and whimsy in it, the bottom lip was...
  7. No Game is Over...Till it's Over!

    Not much of a football fan myself, but my wife and I work with a Patriot fanatic (fortunately his son and daughter are full grown or I think he would have named them both Tom Brady). During the first 3 quarters of the game we kept saying "John is going to be miserable to work with", then during...
  8. Four decorated boxes (beech and teak)

    I made these small decorated boxes this week end. Each box is decorated using a different technique. Inlay, Laser engraving, V-Carving and regular cutting. You can watch the whole process in video here : Cheers !
  9. My Son's Belt Rack

    My son helped design this Belt Rack for our belts. Lots of good fun and learning! I've got some details loaded at the Instructable here: Marco's Belt Rack
  10. Small Circle Cutting Jig

    This article is designed to introduce what I affectionately call my "Wall flower jig". If tends to crop up in a lot of pictures in my past projects but never gets the recognition it deserves. It is my Small Circle Cutting Jig. All of you out there that are into toy making are aware of the...
  11. Small sign for my shop

    Last week I finally made myself a small sign for my shop. Now my visitors and the delivery men will be able to locate my shop a little easier I hope. It is made out of some palletwood and 4mm mdf. I used my lasercutter to cut out the all the letters and the logo. I captured the making of the...
  12. Laser cut inlays.

    This is going to be a short project description as I wore out my keyboard writing about my [ 17 yo ark ] (this is a legitimate Duck link). There has been so many great box postings, I couldn't resist jumping on the bandwagon and sneaking in my simple attempt at box making. A glass or two of...
  13. Zero Clearance Insert (ZCI) on demand.

    With all the twists and pitfalls in life, occasionally one can get lucky… and be born beautiful like me… and if you don't like your face, upon your next reincarnation, ask the Obstetricians to shove you back in and pull you out with a better dial… Now if you believe the above, stop reading...
  14. SAKOF... Don't step on me Stool!

    Everyone was posting pictures if their stools and then a few old timers felt left out and posted theirs…. Well I'm an old timer and never comfortable with being upstaged or mushroomed (kept in the dark)... I decided to present, to all you unfortunates, my SAKOF.... What does SAKOF stand for...
  15. Laser Engraved Veneer Inlays

    Here are some of the .020 wood veneer inlays that I have been working on recently. These were done for cabinet doors to go into a mancave. I have been busy doing projects for others lately, but now have a bit of a breather and can get into the shop for my own projects and enjoyment.
  16. iPhone Wood Wire Free Speakers

    Fun little CNC project with a laser engraving twist. Behind the wood panel there are pathways cut to domed cavities. The sound just travels through these pathways and the dome shape directs the sound towards the listener. I've seen quite a few of these, but thought it would be neat to...
  17. Custom keyboard drawer

    My wife was starting to have back problems related to the poor ergonomics of her old desk at work. We determined that lowering her keyboard would really help to decrease these back issues but all the keyboard drawers I could find were significantly too large for the space. I decided to make a...
  18. 2017 Christmas gifts for the Families

    Getting an early start on all the 2017 Christmas gifts. We decided to do a mass production run to cover three generations of our two families. The females will receive music boxes while the males will receive storage boxes. The difference between the two groups is the storage boxes have no...
  19. 2017 Christmas ornaments for our families

    Getting jump on 2017 ornaments for all members of both Wood-buddies families. Laser was used to Raster (engrave) and Vector (cut) the 3/16" thick finished alder. This was a purchased software program years ago from lasrbits.com. The finish is different colored glitter paint from Wally World...
