  1. Projects Proving angles

    Years ago, I fabricated a simple box joint sled for my table saw. The object was to calibrate it so I could get 10 "fingers" with good fits. Because of the extended trials with this set up I can now swear in sentences. Came across a good deal on an Incra jig and haven't looked back, till the...
  2. Frank Lloyd Wright Mosaic

    The excellent projects posted recently by A&C Style (headboard), Edward (G&G mirror) MBS (Walnut curio cabinet) have inspired me to sit down and take the time to do a proper write-up for the FLW inspired mosaic panel I recently finished. As part of the design process for the Taliesin desk I...
  3. Recycled Oak Flooring End Grain Mosaic Butchers Block

    Having an ongoing supply of 1" oak flooring offcuts from a local business, I set about making something truly tactile and special. There are over 16 different processes from start to finish with this project. There is careful selection of timber required to ensure there are no knots in the...
  4. Poplar Mosaic Box

    Here is a poplar mosaic box I just finished making. The light color is sapwood, the dark colors are heartwoods from different boards. This one is a first for me on a few things: First, this time I paid attention to grain orientation when constructing the sides, trying to align the grains up...
  5. A dragonfly

    This is a pendant in walnut, mahogany and copper inlaid with mother of pearl mosaic and stone enamel with malachite. It`s about 3 inches at length and it takes almost two days to make this pendant. The wings and the tail are flexible so you can change their position.
  6. A butterfly

    One more flying creature from me. The pendant in beech inlaid with brass, mother of pearl mosaic, stone enamel with malachite. It`s about 2,3 inches at length.
  7. Quilt Block Coaster

    I have finally been able to get the setup correct to make a quilt block coaster. Maple and Walnut, 33 pieces in total. This was a fun project and functional too.
  8. Segmented Bowl

    I am having lots of fun making segmented bowl. I made up a mosaic quilt star for the bottom of the bowl and like the way it turned out. The bowl has 72 pieces made from walnut and maple. I am still learning and have to continue to work on the glue joints and sanding better. Thanks for...
  9. Willow Weep for Me

    I made this piece because I was first inspired by a photograph I found last year on FB. I would love to give the photographer credit but I did not make note of his/her name. It appears to be a picture of a willow tree taken from beneath looking up into the canopy. I thought it beautiful and I...
  10. mosaic kitchen

    A small kitchen recently completed. The clients gave me a more or less free hand other than specifying that they wanted stained oak, to match other woodwork in the house. The small display cabinet is part of covering up a large upright support.
  11. Prefab Prairie Coasters

    I really wanted to participate in this year's Beer Swap since I sat out last year. Unfortunately, I've been without a shop for 6 months while we are in an apartment waiting for a new house to be built. That meant I needed to finish my swap project in February, before I packed up the shop. I...
  12. Wall mosaics

    It's been a while since I have had the urge to woodwork; thankfully I have had the drive to get back into the shop and fiddle around! Here are a couple mosaics I just finished up. Both are made of scrap of various species. Hope all is well with everyone God bless.
  13. A Charcuterie Board (a.k.a fancy cutting board)

    I finally did it. I made a cutting ….. errrr…. charcuterie board. My daughters have been disparaging the cutting board we use to put the miscellaneous meats and cheeses on when we have a get together for holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas. Every time a holiday comes around I'm reminded...
  14. Chevy Pick-up Bed Enclosure

    long story short.. Last summer I got really busy and started using my truck a lot to work in Brooklyn and the City I needed to secure my tools, and equip. I needed something, anything soon At first I literally threw something together in a couple of hours one night. I welded some square tubing...

  16. Unique Reclaimed Tsunami Wood Mosaic Coffee Table Handmade In Constitucion Chile

    Made with Rauli Beech salvaged from the banks of the Maule River after the tsunami which hit Constitucion, Chile on the 27th of February 2010. The wood for this table comes from the old buildings that were damaged and destroyed as a result of the disaster. Found washed up over time on the river...
  17. Maple/Padauk/Cherry Mosaic Coasters

    This is my first post to this site and thought I would share these coasters I made. The mosaic is made from Curly Maple and Padauk. The sides and base are Cherry. First time working with Cherry, what a fun wood with which to work. The finish is a couple coats of 100% Tung oil followed by...
  18. Knife Handle Replacement

    Back in 1992, my girlfriend gave me my Christmas present and terrified me by saying "if I play my cards right, I get these back!" We married two years later and have been using these Chicago Cutlery knives a LOT. Unfortunately, a few have broken and a couple of the handles are decrepit. So, I...
  19. Tile-top End Tables

    This is one of a pair of end tables based on the same design as my earlier side table. I used cherry again, but for the top instead of a breadboard top I used mosaic tiles that my wife made. I also added a shelf, which led me to keep the legs straight instead of tapering them. The finish is...
  20. Deck counter top with cupboards

    This is an outdoor cupboard/counter with custom mosaic doors and tumbled Noce travertine top. It sits on the 'Big Deck' that leads to the pergola, and is used for meal service. (I promise, I'll wear shoes next time ;-)
