  1. Letter Box with Engraving

    Made this for a family friend. Solid Birch soss hinges and lee valley magnets. This was done on the CNC made out of two pieces.
  2. End Grain Cutting Board

    This is a cutting board I made about 7 years ago. It is made with Walnut, Cherry and Maple (640 pieces). All the pieces were cut on the table saw and are orientated to be end grain on the board. I imbedded magnets into the corners to hold the knife when you need an extra hand. The outside is...
  3. Cherry Tool Cabinet

    This cabinet was designed around the Golden Mean, an early school project as practise in hand tools. The criteria was dovetails and tenons, all cut by hand. This piece fastens to the wall with a french cleat. I epoxied rare earth magnets into the cleat and veneered over them so most hand tools...
  4. Shop Project - Magnetic Tray for Drill Bit Storage

    I took some scrap plywood and rare earth magnets to make a magnetic tray for drill bits storage. The tray was 11 inches deep to fit in my cabinet. Quick tip, always use twice as many magnets as you think you need. Video
  5. Japanese Style Storage Cabinet

    This piece was built for a couple that lived in Japan for a while and said that they had several pieces of Japanese furniture at their home up north. They gave me some basic dimensions (48" wide, 44" tall, 18" deep), picked cypress as for the wood and specified that they would be using this to...
  6. Cepheid: a kinetic sculpture

    Cepheid is a wooden kinetic sculpture named after pulsating stars. Its curvy, ray-like forms slice and meld into each other as they spin and rock in a seemingly random motion. As Cepheid is set into motion by its spring and magnetic escapement mechanism, it creates a unique visual display of...
  7. New Knife Block

    With limited drawer space I have always had to have a knife block. Had a fairly standard one on the counter but didn't like the amount of space it took up. My kitchen also has the old electrical panel (all wiring passes through it so I can't get rid of it) being all ugly on the wall. Came up...
  8. Magnetic toy fishing set

    Walnut and maple toy fishing set. Super magnets in bobber and noses. The idea came from http://lumberjocks.com/assets/pictures/projects/106223-438x.jpg All the walnut pieces are 3/4 inch, the fins and tails are 1/4, the claws and turtle head are 3/4. The bodies are either 3" diameter round or 5"...
  9. Trammels using magnets

    I was trying to think of some uses for rare earth magnets in the shop and it turns out they work great for trammel points because they make it so quick to adjust. I made a video showing some other uses for the magnets as well . //www.youtube.com/v/mVNwyKXcNNQ ?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0
  10. Travel Cigar Box

    It's been a few years since I've posted, just been busy with other projects and not much tinker time… Travel cigar box for a son. Spalted maple (firewood) & walnut w/tung oil finish. Magnetic hasps and magnets hold the cutter & Zippo. Since it's not cedar lined this is more of a day or weekend...
  11. Rare Earth magnet on jigs

    This is about using Rare Earth Magnets on Jigs. This keeps them handy as I work. They just stick to the side of my equipment/tools. The chrome finish of the magnet can be removed or scuffed by the sanding operation. You can refresh that with chrome nail polish from almost any store that sells...
  12. Magnetic Table Saw Blade Guard

    I'm one of those woodworkers that doesn't use the stock table saw blade guard. It gets in the way of ripping cuts, it's a pain to remove for dadoes, and I couldn't align the splitter properly. But I do use a homemade splitter in my ZCI to prevent pinching of the blade, and always try to use...
  13. Pawed, Canted Box with an Attic

    Name: Pawed, Canted Box with an Attic I made this one as a gift for a recently retired friend of mine. We worked together for more than 25 years, often having breakfast together to start the day. I'll miss the work partnership, friendship and woodworking discussions. He prefers a radial arm...
  14. 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...
  15. "Could you put a handle on that old Ice Pick?"

    A buddy of mine went to the swap meet and brought me back too old planes (a Sargent 217 and an old Dunlap) and a Proto screwdriver. He said "keep the tools if you can put a handle on this old ice pick I picked up." So… what do ya think? Curly Maple and Jatoba. The "sheath" is held on by hidden...
  16. TV Cabinet with Reclaimed Barn Door Hardware

    This is a fun project I did for a customer that wanted to do a simple outdoor cabinet for their flat screen tv. The cabinet is made of MDF. I laminated 1/2" pieces together to give it the paneled look and to increase the strength. The hinges are Blum 170° Full Overlay euro hinges and I used 3...

  18. Purpleheart Magnetic Phone Stand

    For Christmas last year I decided to make a phone stand out of some purpleheart I have. We have magnetic mounts in the car and I wanted something that worked the same. Magnets are magical and I like to use them whenever I can in projects. I went heavy on the magnets because the surface is so...
  19. Magnetic Knife Display Stand

    I looked at the underside of the old knife block, the one that sat on the kitchen counter for years. I did not like what I saw. That was the motivation for this project. The wood shown here is maple with a bit of purpleheart because… that's what I had on hand. While this could easily be used...
  20. Shooting Board Mash Up For Veritas Shooter

    Hey guys, I picked up a Lee Valley Varitas Shooter for Christmas. I have a feeling a few others also ordered one because mine was on back order for a few weeks! During that time, I spent some time designing a shooting board to go with the plane. I researched a lot of designs and and came up with...
