  1. Fathers day hexagon box

    Here is my final box for fathers day. I made this one for my wife's dad. This one took some time to get it right. I wanted it perfect as I could get any way. Bob (my father in-law is a big fisherman, so I added a picture of a rainbow trout n the lid for him, & I cut a piece of Plexiglas to cover...
  2. 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...
  3. Queen Jewelry Box

    This was a completely original design. I wanted to try a few things that I have seen, but hadn't attempted yet. The "hidden" drawer in the side of the top main drawer was a good learning experience and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Also, this was the first time I tried giving the...
  4. Christmas Ornaments 2010

    Here are the Christmas Ornaments I turned this year. Woods used, Maple, Purple Heart, Leopard Wood, Zebra Wood, Cocobolo, Plywood, and a couple I am not sure of. Merry Christmas to all. Thanks for looking. Scrappy
  5. Another Keepsake Box

    Just as the subject states. Seems like there are quite a few on here made by the same plans. I have to agree with the others that have uploaded their work on this plan in saying that this was a really fun project. 90% of the time I spent on it really was just zeroing in the jig to make the...
  6. Xmas Presents 2016

    Some keepsake boxes I made for my adult children last Christmas. Made of leopard wood with walnut accents. Black flaux finish on inside. Wipe-on poly on outside. Maple inlays on two of the boxes. Wenge trunk and crushed rock inlay on the other.
  7. Super Mario Made Out of Wood

    Super Mario made out of leopard wood, maple, walnut and red oak. 170 total pixels, each 1" x 1" with a 45 degree bevel on all 4 sides to add depth and attention to every piece. Mounted on red oak plywood and framed with walnut. Finished with a blend of boiled linseed oil and polyurethane...
  8. Candy Dispenser from the junk pile

    Yes, It's a bubble gum machine. I needed to quickly make a small gift and in my search realized a candy machine might met the requirements. Decided to use the plans from Steve Good's scrollsawworkshop website (who is here on LJ). Used scraps from other projects laying around, even the dowels...
  9. The Sisters

    These two boxes are from the 30 projects in 30 days challenge. They're sisters because they're made from the same materials, the same boards. The boxes are Willow with Leopard Wood on the top. They are 6×8 and about 3.5 inches deep. Like all siblings, they each have their own...
  10. Knot your normal Chess Board

    I wanted to make a chess board that wasn't your typical large contrast board. Selected Leopard Wood and Jatoba for this, with a little Curly Maple thrown in for flair. Some may hate it because the contrast will affect their play, but I love it.
  11. SMALL BOX SERIES 2

    Hi Everyone Finally getting around to posting the rest of the 10 series of small boxes I made, one of them did not make it for the photos. All are 5 by 8 by 3 1/2", give or take a bit, and are of the same construction. Box joints, raised floor, mitered paneled lid with a lip cut to fit...
  12. Commissioned Chess Boards I've made over the last year

    It's been awhile since I posted on here, so I've uploaded 6 projects at once. Found a nice little niche market sort of for chess boards. All but one of these were commissioned for me to make for someone. The collaboration process is kind of fun. I welcome all constructive feedback y'all can...
  13. Wedding card / keepsake box

    Made this wedding card/keepsake box for my son's upcoming wedding. I had some really nice dark leopard wood that I was wanting to use in a project, and it didn't disappoint. That and the curly maple of course, made this thing really pretty. I used a stop hinge for the lid, but my wife...
  14. Lacewood boxes

    Two Lace Wood boxes I have been working on. Both are trimmed with figured Maple and are lined with aromatic Cedar. Finished with Danish oil, poly and waxed. These were fun to make. Lots of fun miter joints! Thanks for looking.
  15. Leopard wood and walnut box

    Over a decade ago I purchased some exotic hardwoods and at the time I had some grand ideas. Unfortunately, when it came down to cutting a $50+ board I just couldn't commit to a project enough to do it. Well, I guess it took a quarantine and a lack of lumber to get me to pull the trigger. The...

  18. Leopard Wood and Curly Maple Computer Desk

    My wife asked me to build a small, low profile stand where she could set her computer, printer, and speakers while she is working in her craft room. The idea was not to have a desk to work at, but a small area to set her computer equipment out of the way of whatever project she was working on...
  19. Leopard wood experience.

    Hi All, Glad to be back in the shop again. I've been in Colorado for the past 6 days doing the Christmas with family thing. This box was for my nephew. He was a Special forces guy who served all over the Globe in harms way. I made this box for him to keep items that he has collected over the...
  20. RETRO

    A gift for Ben and Jenna. I apologize for the quality of the photos. Too much glare and reflection in the clock face. I snapped these on my way out the door, headed to my sons with gifts in hand. Typical for me,right down to the wire. :) This is one of the more difficult projects I have done...
