  1. Bernese Mountain Dog Treat Box

    Can't say enough about these wonderful dogs. Up early, ready to work, very loyal and loving creatures. Oak box with walnut tray. Dyed veneers. Tried and True varnish oil finish.
  2. Things with Rings of Things

    This stuff we tend to make with things just happens to be the stuff we cherish the most as woodworkers. They are our prize for our effort. Is it our top prize? No, that would be the knowledge we gained along the way. To learn how to manipulate things into stuff is very challenging and takes a...
  3. Arnie's Tea Box

    This is a tea box that I built for my sailing friend Arnie. He was a career navy sailor before retirement and spent time in Canada's sailing embassador "Oriole". He has also done considerable offshore sailing on his own so the theme of the box is fitting. And oh yes, he's a tea drinker. One of...
  4. cabin sunset box

    This is a box I made with Walnut and maple. Has a wenge pull. The marquetry pattern has a variety of woods. This box is available at www.azuremoons.etsy.com. Thanks for looking.
  5. Marquetry Chart Boxes

    A friend gave me about a dozen sheets of this veneer a while ago and it immediately reminded me of an old parchment chart, the kind you see in movies about buried pirate treasure. It has been an idea in the back of my mind for about a year but recently I discovered a perfect use for such a...
  6. Two marquetry boxes

    These two boxes make use of the second and third of my four Jean Francois Oeben inspired marquetry motifs for their mirror image tops. They were custom made to house a collection of balls of embroidery yarn. I made them for the collector who bought my earlier jewellery box. She likes my work...
  7. Maritime Desk

    I made this desk when my wife needed a place to work at home. It is made of Red Oak and is 78" x 27" x 27 1/2". The cut outs were done on a scroll saw and are actually air vents for the computer. The faux drawers on the right are actually a door that opens up to reveal a slide out for easy...
  8. A Tribute To My Mentors

    When I started my blog on this project last summer I said that it was a tribute to my mentors and teachers, Patrick Edwards and Patrice Lejeune of the American School of French Marquetry and this project post is dedicated to them. Patrick told me when I attended my first course that if I wanted...
  9. Just a Plane Box for the Shop

    This is my first real hand tool project. I did use a table saw to rough size the stock and to cut the hinge groove but other than that not much noise was made. I rather liked the experience. When I decided to try hand tools I built some wooden planes and they became the purpose for this "box...
  10. Marquetry Treasure Box series II

    Patrick Edwards and I started this project 2 years ago after completing our first series of 4 treasure Box. The series II was inspired by an antique from an auction house We created a new design and concept using the original layout that we really liked. For our creations a...
  11. Shop Art Swap, monochrome marquetry desk organizer

    This was my entry in the recent "Shop Art" swap. It went to RichCMD who as luck would have it already has a maritime theme to his place…... how lucky is that. My first attempt at monochrome was this same ship albeit smaller on the chart boxes that I posted a couple of years ago. I liked it but...
  12. Marquetry Flower Box

    This is my latest marquetry project. The flower is set in sapele pomele. The petals, leaves and stem were sand shaded. The boarder is dyed green reverse diamond veneer and reverse diamond walnut. The bottom panel is walnut. The box is chechen with hand cut dovetails and chamfered edges. The...
  13. Birds and Bees, A Reversing Marquetry Box

    This box is a prototype that I made to find where the problems would be in taking my previous reversible boxes to the next level. The plan is to eliminate the edge of the lid which, if square, is seen in both configurations. The solution seems to be to make the edge a point allowing opposite...
  14. Blogs
    A tribute to my mentors It seems like only yesterday that I built my first chevalet from a few photos on the internet and began to try to figure out how to use it. Well it wasn't yesterday and it wasn't last year either. It was almost four years ago and while I did learn on my own and produced...
  15. Blogs
    Getting the top marquetry done My latest project will be a set of four boxes that may be used for collectables, silverware, or jewellery. They will feature the marquetry tops and parquetry sides of an iconic Jean François Oeben mechanical table. Because I am cutting the marquetry in piece by...
  16. Hand Tools
    A question for any box-building neanders/galoots out there: I would like to apply marquetry to the top of a 1/4" plywood or MDF panel, put balancing veneer on the bottom, and then glue the panel in grooves in a box lid. I have 1/4" and 5/16" blades for my LV small plow plane. If I groove with...
  17. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm challenging all of you to come up with a "Dad Stamp." I don't have a requirement on what the stamp should be, just something that lets people know that, "I'm a dad, and I'm proud of it." "Where did this inspiration come from," you may ask. This morning I showed up to work wearing the...
