  1. Second try at a hinged lid

    This small box is made from scrap pieces around the shop. Cherry box with mitered corners and red oak keys. Top and bottom panels are made from mdf veneered with lacewood. My first attempt at veneer, my second attempt with a hinged lid. The proportions are a tad "?" in that not much fits inside...
  2. Bubinga & Maple Trivet Set

    A bubinga and maple trivet set made as a gift for a social media supporter. The trivets are 6" square in contained in a mitered caddy. My Festool Kapex and 4mm Dominoes made quick work of this project. It was all finished off with a 220 grit sand and some mineral oil...
  3. Picture Frame #2

    This picture frame is made to fit a standard poster, it is made from oak and has mitered corners with dowels through them at a 45 degree angle. I used the dowels because my ceiling is too low to put this frame in my spline jig on the table saw. It has chamfered edges and the oak has some old...
  4. Christmas boxes!

    Some of the boxes I made for Christmas gifts last year.
  5. Dovetail spline jig

    I found this jig design on Youtube; link below. I've been using a flat spline jig, shown on the floor in one of the shots. I'll be tossing it in the trash. This jig can be used both for dovetail splines or flat splines on the table saw, as demonstrated in the video. I highly recommend you...
  6. Walnut dovetailed nightstand

    I built a pair of nightstands to complement my last project which was a new bed. The wood was off of the same tree and I used the matching boards to create book-matched nightstands. This was my first time with mitered dovetails and I was happy with the result. These were my best dovetails to...
  7. A Recipe Box with Box Joint Inlay and Mitered Corners with Splines

    Like the title says this is a recipe box with box joint inlay and mitered corners with splines. I made this project for another content creator and even turned an egg (her mascot) for her on a power drill. Full process can be seen in my Youtube video below. Box is made with 3/8in curly maple...
  8. Handcut dovetail box and a handcut mitered and splined box

    This is the third hand cut dovetail box I've made this month. I used reclaimed pallet wood (hickory I think) and I've only used handtools for this piece with the exception of a drill press for the cedar plug in the semicircle lift on the lid. I used brass screws as pins/rods for the hinged lid...
  9. Cherry and zebrawood box

    A neighbor cut down a dead choke cherry tree and gave me a few bits of what he hadn't promised to his father for firewood (!!!!) After a good friend announced his engagement, I did a lot of headscratching then came up with a box filled with votive candles for the soon-to-be-bride and groom...
  10. Board Again....

    Here's what I've been up to over the last little while, when I should be studying for my comprehensive exams (gotta have priorities!). It's a display for missionary plaques, and it can hold about 24 of them. we have about 10 or so out on missions right now. It's made out of solid red oak...
  11. Odd Box

    I read an article on splined mitered joints, so I made this. Its oak, with walnut splines. Im sure if you check out my other projects you will see I am all about the oak, and dark stain. Needless to say this box will be by my bed side with my 1911 in it. " I would rather be the man with a gun...
  12. Kitchen Remodel

    As per usual, the wife wanted another room in the house updated. This time it was the big room! Old cabinets were the typical oak/particle board crap, with Formica tops and a hideous back splash, so a full tear out was needed. The cases are primarily pre-finished birch ply, which is awesome...
  13. Small Cherry and Maple Box

    I have been ruminating over some ideas for small projects that would make good gifts. Additionally, I had never (until now) made small boxes (for jewelry, or displaying turned pens, etc.). This project and another box project are experiments in designs and techniques and also my first two...

    I have been ruminating over some ideas for small projects that would make good gifts. Additionally, I had never (until now) made small boxes (for jewelry, or displaying turned pens, etc.). This project and another box project are experiments in designs and techniques and also my first two...

    This is a Horizontal murphy bed that I built. This sideways version has mitered raised panel doors on the front. I also put that same panel door design on the side. The back panel is covered in fabric and placed in there in three panels. It covers the entire back and replaces the headboard...
  18. Guilty Secret

    For a while now I've had a guilty secret. I'm known for fancy work and crazy patterns but I've wanted to make just a plain , ordinary box for ages. Well what you see here is a Lacewood (Quarter Sawn London Plane) box, measuring 220mm x 136mm x 84 mm. In the second picture you can see it with...
  19. Mitered Cribbage Board

    This is a cribbage board I made for my son for his birthday. It is made of edge-grain maple, walnut, and mahogany. Thanks to CalgaryBill for design ideas for the base, and to EWJSMITH for his dancing the cribbage board jig, which I modified slightly for this project. The mitered areas are...
