This is a cheese slicer I made as a Christmas gift. The wood is marblewood. I was originally planning to try some inlay in the piece, but the wood grain pattern seemed too beautiful to try to add anything to, so I let it stand on its own.
I was inspired to make this after seeing SPalm's cheese...
Thanks to the person who posted a box with a similar wood combination. I can't keep up with all of the projects that catch my eye. Is there a limit to the Favorites file?? I found this leftover piece of bloodwood. I had some Birdseye maple. This is the result. Watco Danish Oil as a finish...
This is the box a made for the 2018 Boxswap. It is made from pine and a darker wood that came from a weathered 4×4, so it could very well be pine also. I used a stacked method of shorter and longer strips to form the box joints. I wanted to do all the work by hand but I did end up ripping the...
These book cases units were made from MDO and the cabinet door were made from Poplar. The customer was so pleased she gave me a huge discount on a Bichon puppy we bought from her.
I should mention that there are 8 separate sections 4 top shelves and 4 bottom cabinets. All the shelves are...
Well, this isn't exactly made of wood, but I thought it deserved posting here as my first carving, even if it was on a pumpkin. Just getting into the holiday spirit a little. Didn't spend much time in the shop this weekend but I did get to spend some time with my wife and daughter carving...

I've been looking forward to turning this blank. I build this last summer with the design of an argyle sock in my head. I like the look of the pattern and I find the shape...
I grabbed a book and a starter kit from Delphi. and decided to try my hand. The only scary part is the grinding, so I'll probably make a contained grinding station with a nice big DC hookup in back. Requires some god lighting too.
I haven't played with Lead Came for the border yet, but so...
This is a curved-lid box made from padauk. Ends are milk-painted poplar. Finish was several coats of gloss lacquer.

A friend of mine from work creates and sells her own handbags, jewerly…etc. She puts on shows at various locations around the bay area.
She needed a display case that would be small enough to carry yet large enough to hold her items and transport them to the shows.
She gave me a design she would...
This is my favorite piece to date. It features an old stump a friend of mine begged me to take that I wasn't really interested in. It sat in front of my shop for 2 years! I had a friend visiting last year that totally believes in fairies and asked me to build a fairy house for her garden. She...

This is my entry in the "A Knot Like No Other" category for the Winter Lumberjock woodworking Competition.
I have a hard time choosing one knot that is special on this project though. I suppose the story behind the knot...
I thought I'd do a "double duty" with this one-a sign for our picnic and a Summer Awards Project.
I might try it again to see if I can do it better next time but until then, this will be adorning our backyard.
Wood: cedar sign; walnut, pine, and something or other wood (stuff I had kicking...
Here are a couple of my latest bath vanities. They are made out of stained birch and the center panels are
some light curly maple.
The lower door in the small vanity drops down and inside holds rolls of toilet paper.
Thanks for viewing.
