  1. Mothers Day Box

    After looking at all of the beautiful boxes here on LJ, I decided to just dive in and make one as well. I made this one for my Mom for Mothers Day last year. The top is made of Maple Burl, Tiete Rosewood, White Guayana Rosewood (thin strips), Padauk, and Purpleheart, with a Padauk handle. The...
  2. Fathers Day Box

    Here is my second box. This one I made for my Dad for Fathers Day last year. It was my first attempt at inlay, albeit pretty simple, but I think it came out pretty nice. Most importantly, my Dad loved it! The top is birdseye maple with purpleheart inlays and the casing is made of Brazilian...

    A little over a year ago, my wife and I lost our baby to a late miscarriage. We wanted to make a memorial for the baby, mainly to hold the ashes (separate vessel inside the box). In the end, making this box become part of the healing process for us. Using pictures of Andy's art boxes as the...
  4. Celebrate Hope Chest

    Description: I built this chest for Hope Rising, a charity that helps local non-profits in the D.C. region. At Celebrate Hope, their annual fund raising event, they auction off donated items from local businesses and individuals. I decided to make this chest, because I thought it fit right in...
  5. Frame/Panel Keepsake Box

    This box was a birthday gift for one of my four sisters. At the time I wanted to try something with frame/panels, but also wanted to use some gaboon ebony I had on hand. This box was the result. Initially all the ebony corner posts were going to be "proud" of the frames a 1/16 inch, but...

  7. Miniature Birdhouse

    This is my submission for the birdhouse contest. I decided to do something different and miniaturize it. I had been thinking about trying to build a miniature bandsaw box around the same size, and also wanted to build a birdhouse for the contest. The bandsaw box fell by the wayside, but I...
  8. Christmas Ornaments

    Some of the Christmas ornaments we made with our CNC router. Some are based on scroll saw patterns, others are Christmas stencils from the internet. Most are made from maple and cherry.
  9. Napkin Holder

    One of my coworkers asked if I would make a napkin holder for her, so I thought it would be a good chance to use a piece of slightly figured maple I had on hand. The outside edges are walnut, followed by thin strips of cherry, and finally I piece of curly maple for the center. I wasn't sure if...

    This keepsake box has canary wood sides and bloodwood mier keys and a blood wood lid. There are stainless steel pins for the hinge on the lid as all of my boxes are.

  11. Maple Cutting Board Gift

    I'm working on the base of a butcher's block where the top I built looks just like this, but is 2-3x the size. My mother-in-law saw the project and commented on how they'd make a nice gift…her birthday is tomorrow so last week I started making her a smaller version as a cutting board with...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am looking for the Elevating Shaft and Gear Assembly s-01-01593 for the Powr Kraft Radial Arm Saw TPC 2610. The gear that raises and lowers the arm is missing teeth. The previous owner did not unlock the arm before turning the crank. Any clues where I can get this part? Contact…...
  13. Blogs
    Intro To my amazement there has been a lot of inquiries into how I make my wine cork displays. These questions inspired me to create a series of blog/tutorials to help explain my process. They will probably go into far more detail than most of you "master woodworkers" care to see, but I'm...

    2 Year Project Finally Complete Crossin' it off the list! It was just a small project but one that I had neglected since December 2008 and since October 2007 before that. That was the original start date. Anyway, I finished it up today and Mama's happy so everybody's happy. I also reclaimed a...

    Hi fellow LJ's, just a quick question, I have almost completed my cyclone DC, it's made of 99% wood, however inside there is a short piece of 4" PVC, about 14-16". Here is the question, since there is only one small part of the DC that is using PVC pipe inside the cyclone, do I need to run a...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am looking for recommendations for the best blade to cut miter keys. I have been working on boxes and don't like the kerf angles left by my current blade. So I'm interested to hear who is using what to get flat kerfs.
  17. Joinery
    Hey All - I have a feeling asking this question will expose my severe case of HTI (Hand Tool Inadequacy), but I thought I should ask. I have a project I'm thinking of that will require me cutting 3/4" box joints on the end of a 6' panel. In the past i've done box joints on my table saw and with...
