  1. Light Box

    This is for one of my grandsons who likes to draw. One thing he likes to do is print photos or drawings that he finds online, then trace them. Now he can put the drawing on his new light box, plug it in and easily trace it with the bright LED lights shining through. The box is made of scrap...
  2. A Quick Light Tent

    I had trouble taking pictures of the last project, so I knocked together a quick Light Tent… It's as simple as can be, "Tinker Toy" construction, rolled it onto an old bed sheet, add a couple lights, and I'm good to go! I will get some matching light bulbs when it gets used for real, some 100...
  3. Black Walnut Light Box Featuring A Beaded Stained Glass Church Window Tapestry

    Hi All, I was commissioned by a bead artist to design and make a light box for a bead tapestry that featured a stained glass church window spilling light and color onto the snow outside. I decided to use black walnut for the main part of the box and cherry accents on the inlay dovetails and on...
  4. LED Lighted Box for Display of Stained Glass Blue Bird Panel

    A nearby small town has put out 100's of blue bird houses, in an effort to get the blue birds to return to that town. Maybe 50 years ago, there were so many blue birds, their high school mascot was the Blue Bird. Two ladies from that town, that I work on projects with regularly, are rehabbing...
  5. Bar

    I just finished a big project that has taken me almost 2 years to complete. This is a custom designed and built bar in my basement. The design is one my wife and I came up with. I designed and built the entire project (with my wife's help of course) We knew we wanted an old style bar, so we...
  6. light box/tracing table

    My sweetheart is an absolutely amazing artist. Drawing, painting, tattooing, sewing - she does it all. In fact, she sewed me up an awesome shop apron, totally custom… So, I was watching her work, which when she draws, especially tattoos, it requires a lot of drawing a rough sketch, then tracing...
  7. LED lighted display box for Stained Glass Panel

    Back in 2018, I designed and made a stained glass window which is a scale model of Fairbury's old city hall. It was a challenge to figure out how to do the lettering and the clock hands!! It turned out nice, but I am out of outside window glass area to display it. Also a few years ago, I...

  9. Set of 3 cutting boards - and playing with a light box

    This started with a request for a single board (the smallest one in the set). My DIL had seen this design, but flat grain. I preferred the end grain approach for less risk of expansion issues. My wife pointed out that as long as I was making one, I might as well make a few more. That way, I got...
  10. RGB Or LED Shadow Box

    I used scrap wood (cedar, thin plywood and pine trim) to make these projects and just bought the RGB lights from home depot. When you put the lights on the 3d effects really comes alive. You could also use this as a night light for a kids room or a great art work piece as well. For a how to...
  11. CNC router picture

    This image relief was made on a CNC router. I had originally intended to make a photo light cube for it but the picture has a small crack in it so I didn't get to the cube. I figured it'd make a pretty cool night light or lamp.
  12. Light Box for Nativity Scene

    This is a light box I made for my wife's latest stained glass project-A Nativity Scene for our trailer in Arizona. It started out that she asked for a frame for it so I made the front frame members and did not miter them until the glass piece was complete (last Friday). Then she said it had to...

    Thin Strip Sanding. In my box bulding, I have been using a lot of thin strips for accent pieces, including miter splines. Since they need to be accurate and consistent, I need an easy way to sand them. Although I own a Timesaver wide belt sander at my door shop, I do this work at my shop at...

  17. Focus on the Workspace
    I have installed french cleats in my "shop" and have started adding fixtures. I am concerned about mounting a fixture for my pipe clamps. I have over 30 from three foot to six foot in length. I was thinking of making four fixtures that hold eight clamps each, sorting by size. Since I am...

My deck however is elevated over a walkout patio, and is 14×16. I was thinking of building an 11×14 pergola with posts extending through deck and mounted...
