  1. Japanese Chisel Box

    Last Christmas I asked for each of these Japanese chisels as gifts from various family members. Now that I have a full set I decided that they needed a better home than a paper bag. So I used up some "scraps" to build this sliding-lid box. Mahogany with a maple top and lined with black leather...
  2. Magnetic Bottle Opener

    I got volunteered by the wife to make something for a silent auction to benefit one of the girls at her work that has breast cancer. I had about 2 weeks to make something. I have seen these openers around the internet and have always wanted to make one. I picked up some walnut and maple and...
  3. Simple lift lid keepsake box with flush mounted magnetic catches

  4. The Better Beer Bottle Opener

    I imagine that some more industrious turner could use this general idea to make a bottle opener that resembled a baseball, football, hockey puck, soccer ball, etc… First I'd like to than the giants upon whose shoulders I stand: Paul - http://lumberjocks.com/projects/51035 Bob -...
  5. Magnetic Beer Tote

    Not the most original thing in the world but here's my take on a beer tote… Had some lightly figured maple and a bunch of aromatic cedar in the shop, so I figured I'd give one of these a try. Didn't have plans so I marked things out by using beers from the fridge. Sides are maple, bottom and...
  6. MY SWEETHEARTS GOT A RACK

    I am working on a project for myself and had my sweetheart chisels out laying on the bench in the leather roll that came with it and thought I better make these sweeties a rack so they will be handy and get used a little more . It's a simple rack made from jatoba ,magnets from a computer hard...
  7. Spalted Jewelry Box

    Finally! The jewelry box is finished! I started this box back in November as a Christmas present for my girlfriend. The spalted wood I believe is birch, out of my driveway. I had never ripped my own boards from logs before, so that was a cool experience. While the wood was drying I made the...
  8. 4th Anniversery Music Box

    This kind of counts as a bandsawn box. The body is Brazilian Cherry and was glued up from 1 long board. After the initial jointing and gluing the hing locations where marked which set the size of the sides. After marking the thickness I went to the bandsaw and cut 1/2 inch off the bottom and...
  9. Rustic Hickory Ring Boxes

    Here are some pictures of the small, rustic hickory ring boxes I've started making. These were made from hickory that had been sitting up for a few years now, so the pieces are quite dry. I like using hickory for these because it holds the bark extremely well. The lid swivels to open and can...
  10. Magnets & Secret Compartment for my Handgun!

    I had two goals for this project. First, upgrade our keychain holder that hangs by our front door. Second was to store and hide my handgun when it isn't in my pocket. Goal #1 was accomplished by building a 12×18 x 5" keychain holder made of cherry. It is finished in a couple coats of Deft...
  11. Showtime! Bottle Cap Catchers

    Tis the time of year when the annual crafts fair and week long bird watcher gathering hits town. This fair is small, maybe 20/30 booths, three sale days, but it's local 8^) My wife, the glass fuser, wanted two booth spaces since she has a lot of stuff and of course I offered to help her with...
  12. This Years Cribbage Board

    Once again a simple cribbage board for my dad for his birthday. You wouldn't believe how many panels I made until I got the angles correct. But once you have the blocks set and the compound angle set on the saw you can make panels all day long. Also, when placing the magnets you have to align...
  13. Beer Bottle Opener

    I want to thank KnotCurser for his great bottle opener project. When I first saw this, I thought, what a great idea. I took his idea (I hope you don't mind) and modified it a bit. I wanted to personalize it to the type of beer that the person that I'm giving it to likes to drink. So I would go...
  14. Magic Coin Bank with a Twist

    I saw a post about the magic coin bank and I loved it.. I thought it would be perfect for my nephew and it looked fun to build. The only thing was my nephew was young and I was afraid he would get upset when the money disappeared and he could not retrieve it! So I added a little magnetic draw...
  15. Information Sign Board w/ Magnetic Frames

    This is another project for the summer camp I work at. It is a sign board that displays the pictures/cell phone numbers of our 3 staff hosts on duty, it has two 8.5×11 frames for general group information/schedule, and it has a weatherproof literature box to hold our camp maps. This is one of...
  16. Tricky piece of wood

    I'm not sure what wood this is - but the piece had been hanging around the garage for a long time. I kept going back to it and sanding it and then putting it down again. Wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. Finally, I just decided to do something - and this is what I ended up with...

  19. Dovetailed Cherry Burl Beer Tote

  20. Round Box with Impossible-Looking Hand-Cut Dovetails

    You read that right: Hand-cut dovetails on a round box (as opposed to the tails or pins being round, which these are not). This piece was inspired by this Woodgears article where Matthias rounds over the corner of a dovetail joint, turning a basic through-dovetail into something quite unusual...
