  1. Projects Military Memory box

    This is memory box for someone in the military. A little bit about the design. The top is flat and grooved to hold military coins. The splines are to copy officer ranks worn on uniforms for the Coast Guard and the Navy. That is why each side is different, a different number and different size...
  2. Projects Simple Coin Rack

    The top tier was originally made a year ago. The customer recently asked if I could add two tiers and make them each a different wood. I added mahogany and walnut to the sapele tier. To be honest, I was unsure how it would turn out, but I am actually pleased with how it looks.
  3. French 4lb Canon Restoration

    The first resident cannon the Monmouth Battlefield State Park Museum, this reproduction French four-pounder was donated through the Friends of Monmouth in dire need of attention. Artisans Artisans replaced the rotted cannon trails and reinforced the axle. The wheels and hubs remained intact and...
  4. The Buck Stops Here.....USS Harry S Truman

    Onboard USS Harry S Truman, we routinely quote "The Buck Stops Here". I was asked to make something simple that has a little meaning to the ship. This is my interpretation of the sign that President Truman had on his desk. I made 21 total. I used ambrosia maple and sapele.
  5. US Navy Fleet Map Going away gift

    This is a wooden map 4'x2' with the continents cut out of cork so once hung it's functional art. I think it came out nicely.
  6. Air Force retirement trunk

    I finished this retirement trunk for a Command Master Sergeant in the Air Force a while back but it was just presented recently. The customer wanted it to be able to hold his bugle yet still be able to remove it easily for use. This presented a bit of a challenge since all I had to go off of...
  7. Quicky Project

    For the longest time, we had a cut-up water bottle attached to the wall using a thumbtack to hold our dry erase markers. It kept falling off the wall, so I grabbed two pieces of scrap wood and threw this together. Works much better now and even has a place to hold the eraser.
  8. US Navy Aviation Ordnanceman (AO) Project Day

    For those not familiar, Navy Aviation Ordnancemen are the folks who deal with everything to do with aircraft weapons. This was the first AO pen I've turned, finished with CA and buffed. The red things with the black rope…those are aircraft chocks…..normally a yellow or orange in color though...
  9. A Better Use of Office Space

    I build notebooks of information each day as one of my jobs, so I needed a little space to spread out and build the notebooks. Space is at a premium here in the office, so I had to figure out a way to replace a broken desk holding up the scanner and a stool that was holding up the printer. I...
  10. Random Shadow Boxes

    Here are a few pictures of shadow boxes I've made. The first one is a horrible picture of the first shadow box I made for a mentor of mine upon his retirement. It is made from curly maple and cherry. It was the first shadow box I made and it got so much attention that I was compelled to build...
  11. A Hallway Library (and some storage)

    People were reading books and throwing them away, so I thought it would be better to let people share the books with others, so I built a table and shelf to put the books out for others. The table and shelves sit out the the hallway of my living area so that people can put out items they don't...
  12. Navy Chief Goat Head Plaque

    No goats were harmed during the creation of this project…. This is the second project I've done, only the head for this one though. These aren't hard project and a lot of fun to make. Thanks for looking.
  13. USMC EOD Shadowbox

    This was a project almost 10 years in the making. I made one of these style of boxes for myself when I retired. But I ended up re-doing it and giving it to a friend. So I finally got around to making one for myself. I refined the design to clean up the lines and had the laser engraving done...
  14. Military Shadow Box Table

    I made this table for my 1st Sergeant who retired after 29 years of military service in the USAF. Although this took a while to make, it was well worth the time and effort. It is made of red oak 1X material and oak ply finished with a few coats of minwax classic oak stain. This is a project I...
  15. Military Sword Shadow Box

    I made this for a GYSGT who works for me. He had some momentos from when he was a drill instructor at Paris Island. He had one and it fell off the cabinet and busted so I built another one that was better and stronger. It is made of walnut with biscuit joinery. I created the trim on the router...
  16. Firehose Shadow Box

    This was fun project for one of my departing Shipmates. The flag is a replica of our ship's battle flag…USS Harry S Truman. The flag is made from an expired fire hose from the ship. Everything was cut out with the scroll saw. The mustang in the center represents someone who has come up from...
  17. F-14 tomcat challenge coin display

    Just finished this 33" tomcat silhouette for a coworker. It's made from maple, walnut, and sepele. Took about 8 hours to complete. For the finish I used 4 coats of dewaxed super blonde shellac, then buffed with 0000 steel wool and paste wax. I just used a 1/4 keyhole bit for the back so it can...
  18. Flag Displays

    I made these for going away gifts for a couple of guys I work with. The flags were flown during our last deployment. I made two coin slots in each base, one is to hold my ship's command and the other is to hold a coin from the squadron who flew the flag during a combat mission. You know when...
  19. Navy Aviation Ordnance Intarsia Project

    I'm considering this one finished unti I can figure out what I am going to do with it..ha. This is my first intarsia project, fun but I can see how practice is the key to this type of woodworking. This is the rating symbol for a Navy Aviation Ordnanceman. Wings = ash center pot = walnut...
  20. Aircraft Carrier Coffee Table (USS George H.W. Bush CVN-77)

    A few weeks ago I was approached about making an aircraft carrier coffee table for a retiring Master Chief. I searched for a few days to find thick enough stock for the top and I made a joke to my wife that our kitchen table would be perfect to cut it out…...after a search on Craigslist I found...
