  2. Another Box for Dad

    I made another box for dad. This one is out of maple, with cherry for the splines and red oak plywood for the top and bottom. Keeping with my idea of trying something new with each project, I had a few firsts this time. First time using my dado stack. I have the Dewalt 8" set, which is great...
  3. Ladybug Candy Dishes with Swivel Wing covers

    These are little candy dishes I designed. They each are about 6" in diameter. They are collapsible, which means that they can sit flat. This is possible because I cut the inner rings by cutting a spiral on a 4" bevel. When cut, the wood resembles a spring and you can pop it into place. The...
  4. Restored Antique Cedar Chest

    I found this little gem in Montgomery and bought it for $35. It had a water damaged lid. It looked like a wet magazine or book was left on top of it under a leak in the ceiling. The skirt was completely destroyed. I took the entire thing apart, which was a task. I was very fortunate that...

  6. Maple and Sapele Box with Lift Off Lid

    This was made for my brother in law for his birthday. It is made from maple and sapele. I shaped the belly of the sides and lid using the table saw to remove the bulk of the material and then used files and sandpaper to get it nice and rounded. It is sanded to 320 grit and finished with two...
  7. Harbor Freight Dust Collector Mod

    After buying the Harbor Freight 2hp dust collector right after Christmas, I knew I was going to be making some changes to it. First, I dumped the upper bag and added a Wynn 35a filter. Second, I really wanted to put a pre-separator on the unit to keep from having to change the lower bags as...
  8. Boxelder and Spalted Maple Salt Cellar

    This is a salt cellar made of boxelder and spalted maple. I have made several of these items and this one by far is my favorite. All of my salt cellars use a stainless steel screw to secure the lid and and smooth rounded bottom to insure that no salt grains get trapped in the corners. Enjoy!

  11. Cookie Jar Lid

    A lady in our park has a disabled grand daughter who loves dalmatians so she bought her a cookie jar with the 101 dalmatians but it had no lid . She asked if I could make her one and said the girl has a problem grasping so I made it with a hole in the handle to put her finger through to lift...
  12. 22nd Anniversary Bowl

    What do you do when a mutual agreement to NOT buy anniversary gifts is in place? You make her something. Total one-up job here! I have never turned a lid for a bowl before. So I decided now is as good a time as any. The bottom is Cherry. The lid is Honduras Mahogany. The handle is...
  13. Back in the Saddle Again...

    It has been cold and icy here in southern Indiana. For too long I have been neglecting my tools and my lumber pile. I've also let a bunch of finished boxes sit around begging me to be photographed, but noooo… I take photos in the workshop, and it's cold out there. So, today I put on my big...
  14. Lidded Bowl with Finial

    The materials are Sycamore, Rosewood, and African Blackwood for the finial. This lidded bowl started out as sycamore vase, but I went too far with a new hollowing tool, and the wall went to infinite thinness, and the top broke off. But the base was a nice shape. So, I experimented with dyes on...
  15. Bench with Storage #2

    Another bench with storage, built from 2×12's and 1×6's. I used thinner stock for the rails this time in order to maximize the inside width. The corners are again pegged with dowels, this time 2 different sizes per corner because they are what I had on hand. The lid on this bench is hinged, just...

Here's my first try at one. It's made of maple with a walnut lid and measures 7.25"w x 2.5"d x 2.125"h...
  18. I almost lost my marbles!

    I like this box! I think it looks pretty good, and I've never seen one quite like it. It started with an idea… build a box for a brother in law that collects marbles. It's about 12' x 9" x 4" high. I made smallish compartments to hold some of his favorites. It doesn't really allow them...
  19. First couple of attempts at turning containers/lids

    Second and third attempts at turning containers with lids (the poplar is the second try, red oak is the third). I gave away the first one before I could get pictures. My bad :P. I'm still getting used to getting the lid JUUUUST right, but I'm getting better every time! Oil and wax finish on...
