  1. child's toybox

    This toybox is the 6th one I have done. The first trial version had foam letters from walmart. They were stuck on with a sticky pad on the back. We quickly learned that babies love to pull them off. From then on, we have only used wood letters. I have done a few initials (when names...
  2. Square Dance Checkers

    After years and years of my partner saying "Let's go dancing", and me saying "I don't want to go dancing", she finally dragged me out to a barn dance at a local farm. I admit, I kinda had fun when I had instructions for what to do, so when she suggested that we go for Modern Western Square Dance...
  3. Olivewood Letter Opener

    I was making a crochet hook, and there was a worm hole through the blank, so I couldn't complete it with this blank. So I made lemonade, so to speak. It's about 5.5 inches long and 3/4 around at the largest part of the handle. I used the band saw to start the blade shape, and then my oscillating...

  5. Final Home for our Mantel

    Back in the early 1980's my wife would get migraine headaches that would last for several days. Once she got rid of a headache, her shopping gene would kick in. After one particular bout, we went out to let the shopping gene run its course. On this particular trip, my wife found this mantel...
  6. Pens, Pens, and some Coffee Scoops and Letter Openers

The Pen is Ebony and Birdseye Maple. The Letter Openers are Blood Wood and Olive Wood. The Pens are...
  7. Tree Cookie Wedding Letter Routing Project

    This is a Tree Cookie Wedding Letter Routing Project I did for my sisters wedding. Letter Routing is a pain in the butt and I am still trying to figure out how the Router guide insert shattered into a thousand pieces and went flying out of my router half way through the project but it turned...
  8. Message/ letter Board

    This was made for a client that wanted the same thing except the color was wrong. With different types of wood I explained to her would come different colors, even if I used the same stain. She said to go ahaed and build it and when done was not satified with the color only. I have come to use...
  9. Custom Letter Openers

    I began making these by the request of my Dad. He wanted to give a couple of them as thank you gifts to people that helped him through the loss of my Mother. The ones I made were so well recieved I decided to make more for presents. They are made from cherry, oak,cypress and birch. The...

  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm currently working on a small zebra wood/bubinga "palm" box for my niece. I really want to inlay a curly maple "Z" on the bubinga lid, her name is Zoey, but I'm a little unsure how to approach it. My original plan was to print a simple, straight lined "Z" on a piece of paper and trace it...

    I'd had the notion to fashion my own branding iron for my projects. Anyone else attempted/accomplished this? If so, did you go with a design or legible text? I've seen the hobby-irons with brass letters, but just curious if anyone else has thought of an alternative to the $80 custom-made irons...

    A couple of tips from a guy that refurbishes furniture from time to time…. 1. Plywood is ok, but not for structural parts, or exposed edges. The veneers will peel at exposed edges, which is pretty tough to fix. Plywood will also bow under a load causing hinged doors with weight on them to...
