  1. Projects Urn Box For My Father

    I made this urn box for my father who passed away in February. I finished it a few months back but I am posting today because it would have been his birthday. It is made of Walnut and Cherry with Maple/Walnut splines. The cherry was from a tree he planoted as a boy in Louisiana. My cousin milled...
  2. Tribute to my Father

    My Dad recently passed away at the age of 91 years old. He was an amazing man and taught me many things. One of which was to be Proud to be an American. He served in the Army during both World War II and the Korean War. I was able to get his service records so I could accurately recreate his...
  3. Memorial Flag box

    This was made for a fallen vet, the father of a friend of mine. Godspeed I used my new carvewright to put the old Air Force emblem on the side.
  4. Memorial Flag Case

    This is my first project post here. I unfortunately don't get to make as many things as I would like with fixing up my home and working full time but I get to make some things I enjoy at times. This is a memorial flag case for my Grandfather. He passed away a few years back and was a WWII...
  5. pets memorial

    finally hung a memorial plaque i carved to place over the burial site of our dog and cat who passed away a few years back. We planted a rose over the site about a year ago and my wife wanted a plaque to be hung over the rose. Carved this out of tigerwood, something I'm not sure I want to do...
  6. Memorial Flag Display Case for my Dad

    I made this memorial flag display case for my Mom for Christmas last year. My Dad passed away earlier that year after a long bout with dementia which, as some of you know, is a rough way to go. Found a few pieces of heart pine from my grandfather's 90+ year old barn which has been since torn...
  7. Multi-Layered US Navy Plaque

    After noticing that one of my new neighbors comes home daily in blue fatigues, I quickly realized he was a sailor (as the Navy is the only branch with blue fatigues). Being a former sailor myself, I decided I wanted to welcome him into the neighborhood with some sort of Naval plaque. This is...
  8. Portrait of my Grandfather

    This is an 8×10 portrait of my grandfather that I made for him as a gift. I edited out his name for privacy reasons, but it simply says his name and Master Scroller. This portrait, I'm proud to say, is now hanging in his workshop right above his scroll saw. I have also uploaded the original...
  9. Memorial Picture Frame

    I've been asked to build several projects as tributes to lost loved ones - a couple of urns, memory boxes, Flag cases, frames, etc. I always consider it an honor. This one was a challenge (made out of one solid piece of oak), but I'm pleased with the result. When routing the rabbit in the back...
  10. Memorial Box

    This was made for a co-worker who's daughter died at age 10. Its walnut and zebrawood with a curly maple inlaid top, and a walnut diamond inlaid into the inlay. The finish is danigh oil and brushed lacquer. Icarved the cross out of walnut and carved out a matching recess for it to fit into. The...
  11. memorial flag

    I made this flag at work to honor federal correctional workers that have been killed in the line of duty. All give some…some give all.
  12. Football Urn/Memorial

    This is a recent commission for a footbal urn. This is a segmented walnut lidded vessel fashioned after an official NFL sized football (at least my best attempt at it). This piece provided a number of challenges which makes it my favorite kind of commision (one that challenges). There are around...
  13. Memorial Flag Case for my Dad

    My dad liked Walnut and loved how I incorporated sapwood in my projects. He sadly died of covid pneumonia a few weeks ago. It's been devastating but keeping busy in the shop has helped. RIP Dad. I miss you tons!
  14. Turned urns

    When a friend's mother passed early in the 2020 pandemic, they couldn't have a memorial service. These mini-urns are a way to remember her by carrying a little part of her with you. They are about 1.25" long and are designed to be worn on a necklace. Modified keychain kits from PSI.
  15. Memorial

    I made this project for my neighbour. It stands about 45" tall and is made from 1" quater sawn white oak. It is to be placed at the family's cemetary. Construction wise it was fairly basic. I used a tapering jig to cut the angles and just butt jointed the project together. I wanted to mitre...
  16. Memorial Flag Shadow Box for Mom

    This is one of mom's Christmas presents. I made the funeral urn when dad passed last month but we hadn't done anything with the flag presented to her at the funeral. Made from cherry and finished to match the urn; Georgian Cherry stain and Arm R Seal for a shine. This was a combination of plans...
  17. Memorial Benches - - - With a story

    In October I completed these comissioned Memorial Benches for some very dear friends of ours. They are made with California Redwood and then stained and finished for protection. The story is: Our friends just recently got married - " at the age of 90 and 85 respectively". Each of them lost...
  18. 29-String Celtic Harps

    My daughter is a young harpist and she had been getting by on a cheap rental harp for a while. I decided to surprise her with a custom-built harp for her birthday last month. She had no idea I was building it, so it was quite a shock to her when I gave it to her. Building it was a lot of fun...

  20. Veteran's Memorial Urn

    A woodworking club in Tampa came up with a winning idea: Build a memorial urn and donate it to families of veterans who couldn't otherwise afford one. Or, in my way of thinking, wanted something other than a mass-produced, soulless product as a container for their loved one's cremated remains...
