  1. Oak Lined Leadwood Ring

    This is a wearable wooden ring made from a solid piece of Leadwood lined with Oak. The tricky thing with these rings is getting them the right size. My method is to wrap the thin strip of lining around a stepped ring mandrel and measure that diameter with calipers. I then bore out (using the...
  2. Redwood and hard maple box #4

    My second post in a series of nine box art projects using reclaimed redwood. Each posting features a unique box in the main pictures and a narrative focused on a different step in the process. Sometimes including photos from parts of other projects in the series; click on "my next or previous...
  3. Madison's Arts and Crafts Jewelry Box

    This jewelry box was a gift to my niece. It features a padded tray and silk moire lining (thank you to my textile adept spouse for lining this). Box joinery in Jatoba, with a frame and panel lid. The insert, more of that wonderful tiger maple.
  4. LAVA

    LAVA This box was specially commissioned for an exhibition in US, 'Boxes and their Makers' - mirroring 'Celebrating Boxes' that I set up with another UK box maker and old friend, Peter Lloyd, back in 2001. Because of the extraordinary veneer that is its main feature this is a unique and never...
  5. Bentwood Inlay Rings

    Here are some more bentwood rings I made recently, featuring inlays. The first is Walnut with crushed turquoise, the second and third are Maple-lined Walnut with Maple inlay.
  6. Tea caddy in burr oak

    'Veneered' can mean different things to different people depending on your point of view/experience. It can mean 'fake' - an attempt to fool the buyer/observer into thinking that a piece is made from a more expensive/pretty timber than it actually is. But it also allows the maker to use far...
  7. Jewelry box - curved front

    This is Wood Magazine's Jewlery Box found in the Dec '09 / Jan '10 issue. I found the velvet shaped partitions for the drawers at Bed Bath and Beyond. Once I saw them, I knew my wife would enjoy the built-in organization. So I built the drawers around the partitions and the box around the...
  8. Flute case - for a flute played standing on one leg ...

    I've made quite a lot of flute cases for some quite famous flute players - but then, how many flute players have most people heard of? I made this case for the favourite flute - a beautiful Verne Q Powell wooden Boehm system - belonging to a certain famous rock flautist that I guess most will...
  9. Walnut Jewelry Box - Basic

    Hi I am still very new to woodworking and this piece is my first small project that sort of turned out as intended but very far removed from perfect. My 3rd year wedding anniversary was coming up and according to some such nonsense the material for 3rd year wedding anniversary is leather… not...
  10. Wood & Lumber
    In search of a good vendor in the North Eastern PA or Tri-State region. I would be in the market for dimensional lumber not typically sold at big box hardware stores, as their "exotics" only consist of Maple and Oak. Not so exotic. I appreciate the guidance in advance.

  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    What do you do on a Sunday afternoon when your chores are all done, you've read all your woodworking blogs and your woodworking fix is still not satisfied? Why you head on over to eBay of course to see if you can find any gems amongst the dross. Filter out the 'Buy It Now' items, the 'New' items...
  13. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Today as I was finishing a job. I fired up the dust collector, plugged in the sander, and started finish sanding….. Only problem: durning the one hour of sanding I never realized that I never plugged in the dust collector hose to the orbital sander….:(
  14. Finishing
    Well, the subject doesn't say much, my question (absolute newbie) is: When you make something that will have a side that is not visible, how do you finish that part? I'm talking of something like the downside of a tabletop, or the steps of a saircase. Thanks a lot
