  1. Keepsake Boxes for Family

    When we saw the design for these boxes in Wood Magazine several years ago, my wife and I thought they would be great gifts for her mother and grandmother. The first one is made from cherry and walnut. I had some 8/4 cherry with sapwood that I re-sawed to get two book-matched pieces that I...

  3. Business card holder

    This is a business card holder for a vendor's display booth. The lady sells Gold Canyon candles and this is "GC" is part of one of their logos. I made it out of some Makore that I had laying around. I used dark walnut stain and 3 coats of lacquer. The wood is an inch think, so I had quite a few...
  4. Keepsake box, confirmation gift.

    I made this box for my sons confirmation gift. It's quarter-sawn makore, quarter-sawn sycamore and a little maple. Specifically the top underside is maple. I was afraid the sycamore wouldn't display the scripture. My wife and I chose the scripture because he's a young man and he's growing up...
  5. The "Crazy & Busy" Clocks

    It is called the "Busy" clock because the spousal unit said it looked "busy" when I showed it to her 8^) I'll post it on LJs, that'll learn her! Anyhow, these two clocks are the result of experimentation. I still have a half dozen or so clock motors from bulk purchases (I saved money right?)...
  6. Tiger Cedar Chest

    This is my third project using a chevalet de marqueterie. The chest measures roughly 30"X20"X20". The front is made using almost twenty different veneers some of which I dyed myself, I just couldn't find a tree that made blue wood. The other parts of the outside are Makore.On the last blanket...
  7. keepsake seagull box

    This is a small box that I made for a friend who lives in Portugal that i will be visiting. The Birdseye Maple I choose for the top and bottom have marks that resemble seagulls. It really makes a project special when you can find something in the wood that give you project special meaning or...
  8. Jewerly box

    Made this simple jewery box for my young daughter. The box is made of makore, keys from purple heart, inside dividers are fir and I used a bandsaw to cut off a piece of splated maple and glued it to a plywood backing for the tops insert.
  9. TINY box

    After putting up with my addiction to wood, I decided that I wanted to make an anniversary gift for my wife of 17 years. I wanted it to be surprise, so I had her help me make it, under the premise that it was for my daughter. She helped me decide on the veneer choice, Makore. I spent a few days...
  10. Entertainment System Cabinet

    I built this cabinet around existing brickwork and to house a 51" TV. The cases and shelves are 16mm cherry melamine with tongue & groove backing. The cabinet and shelf facing is 23mm Makore.
  11. Antique bulb accent lamp

    Lighting is always a fun subject and the prevalence of these "antique" bulbs has made it even more fun. This is a square lamp made of Makore with a 5" spherical bulb. It is on a dimmer so you can set it super low to just see the filament lighting up.
  12. Fancy Frame

    This frame is made of Maple and Makore. The 1/4" thick makore inserts for the corners and the center frame are inlaid 1/8" and stand proud of the maple frame by 1/8". I especially like the feather effect of the makore grain on the finished corners. It is finished with lacquer.
  13. Greene and Greene Gamble House Bookcase

    Made from cherry and makore with a amber shellac and satin Seal Coat finish. Slightly shorter and a bit wider than the original. Both sides have hidden compartments under the insert shelfs.

  15. Bubinga/Makore Tea Box

    Hey ladies and gents. We have a lot of different tea bags floating around so I thought of a way to keep them all together and more organized. Here's a Bubinga tea box that I finished over the weekend. It has ebony splines and a Makore top all sanded to 400 and wet sanded with Danish oil and a...
  16. Sjoelbak anyone? (Dutch shuffleboard)

    This was a project that I have wanted to build for a long time, and I finally got around to it. I promised the family it would be done by Christmas, and what do ya know! It's done a month early! For those of you not familiar with Dutch shuffleboard, it's a very fun and addictive game. Each...
  17. Bread and Oil Boards

    Here's another batch of bread and oil boards that I've made. They measure 18" x 5" and have small recesses cut out under the bowls. Many species of wood were used. Referencing the second picture (L-R), the line up goes: cherry/maple; maple/makore; maple/padauk; and walnut/maple/padauk. Had a lot...
  18. Makore, wenge and maple table

    This was a commission for some friends who wanted a 52 inch square kitchen table. The top and sides are all solid wood, no veneering here. The top is about 1.75 inches thick, but with my knack for carving, I rounded the sides so as you sit at the table and put your hand on the bottom, it is...
  19. Adire 281 and LCC Speakers

    I built these in 2005. They are Adire 281 towers and LCC (Large Center Channel). Unfortunately, Adire isn't around anymore. They put out a great design and kit built around their 8" woofers and I couldn't be happier with the sound. The boxes are MDF veneered with paperbacked quartersawn Makore...
  20. Bookshelf Speakers- Zaph Audio ZMV5

    My second pair of speakers. These are based on the Zaph Audio design. (for plans see www.zaphaudio.com/ZMV5.html) I was going for the best sound I could get in a sub $200 pair of speakers. These easily blow away speakers at 2-3 times the price. I modified the boxes from Zaph's design to curve...
