  1. Mother's Day Rolling pin

    So, I have been wood turning for the better part of 5 months now, and I have made a wide variety of small projects i.e. pens, yo-yo's, lidded boxes…things of that nature. This is my first "bigger" project. I glued up 4 quarter stock of Ash and African Padauk, to make this 3 inch wide and 20...
  2. Purple Heart and Maple Ring Box

    I made this small ring box as a Mother's Day gift for my wife to house birthstone rings of our two children. It's made out of purpleheart and maple scraps that I had laying around the garage and finished with spray on shellac. I used offset rare earth magnets as the hinge and stop. It measures...
  3. Easy Mother's Day Gift

    With Mother's Day coming up quick, I put together a quick tutorial on this Welcome Porch Post I made for my mom last year. I think most women enjoy a pretty porch, so if you are running out of ideas maybe this would be a good option. I have a full tutorial on my blog here, but a summery is: I...
  4. Another Keepsake Box

    Just as the subject states. Seems like there are quite a few on here made by the same plans. I have to agree with the others that have uploaded their work on this plan in saying that this was a really fun project. 90% of the time I spent on it really was just zeroing in the jig to make the...
  5. Mother's Day Swing

    I built this swing for my wife for mothers day this year. Its up on blocks in my not-so-level yard for the moment until I build my island deck. Basic treated lumber, stained with Minwax Provincial and 2 coats of Thompson's water seal. I'll cut the chains off after I get it set up on my island...
  6. Coffee Table for Mothers Day

    This is my submission for the Rockler Plywood Challenge hosted and judged by the guys at the Modern Maker Podcast. The challenge is to design and build a piece of furniture using a single piece of plywood. Other material can be added but the single sheet of plywood should remain the main...
  7. Mothers Day Chicken

    I made this 3D laminated chicken as a Mothers Day gift for my wife. It is oak with oak dowels for legs and to line up the wings. I used Sharpie to draw the face and then used boiled linseed oil to finish it. Thanks for looking.
  8. Bottle Stoppers and Box

    This was a mothers day gift this year, and it started out as 2 turned bottle stoppers. I made the red first two (left and center in all images), and then wanted to try mitered corners with spines. This was not something I'd ever done before, and wanted to test out doing it with my radial arm...
  9. Lacewood Earrings and Necklace

    This was a gift I made for my mom for mother's day. I am not a huge fan of making jewelry but it does give me an excuse to use exotic woods I wouldn't normally have come through my shop, such as lacewood. On a side note, I wish I had started making wood jewelry as gifts sooner. It's pretty...
  10. My first scroll saw attempt/wife's mother's day gift!

    Well it's FINALLY finished! I started this project almost 5 months ago thinking I had more than enough time for mother's day but I ended up cutting it pretty close. It didn't turn out as good as I hoped but I guess for my first (and possibly last!) attempt at scroll sawing I'm satisfied...
  11. Mother's Day Jewelry Box from QSWO, PH, Maple and Wenge

    This was a very hastily put together mother's day project for my fiancee (I Am a procrastinator in the classic sense of the word!). Made from Quarter Sawn White Oak and Maple with Wenge and Purple Heart accents. Total time to make was a couple hours, the Velour inside liner was from Joann...
  12. Mother's Day Bowl

    I am very fortunate to have my mother in my life so this is a bowl that I've made for Mother's Day. It is from the same wood stock that I've been calling elm but it is probably better called mystery wood. It is a simple form that I seem to keep making but this one is a bit more refined that the...
  13. Pens for Mother's Day

    These are 3 pens I made for my mom and grandmothers. The top one is a chrome slimline made from Redheart. The middle one is also a chrome slimline made from Bacote. And the Bottom one is a chrome comfort pen made from Padauk. The comfort pen is one of my first comfort pens. The 1st one didn't...
  14. Ebony Picture Frame

    Hello. This is a picture frame I made for a sketch I drew for my mom for mother's day. Its made out of Gaboon Ebony so its as black as could be and has many half lap joints holding the parts together. When I finished the sketch and my mother requested that I make a frame for it so she could...
  15. Crib

    I made this crib for my grandson.
  16. Mother's Day Rocking Chair

    My first-born son was due on 5/22/14. So in Sept of '13, when i first learned we were expecting, i started this rocking chair project with hopes that i would finish before he was born. Luck being what it is, the baby came almost 2 weeks early (on 5/11) and so the chair wasn't finished until he...
  17. North Wildwood Sign

    Made a sign for my mom for mother's day. THe frame is just painted pine with an oak insert. The engraving was done with a Shaper Origin.
  18. Mothers Day Gifts for the Grandmas

    This are mothers day gifts for the Grandmas in our family. Crafted from Teak purchased from #reusehawaii. I knew this wood would come in handy, not to mention Teak is around 26 bucks pbf. Each box contains 3 coasters in which I engrave a mother holding her child using #BobsCNC. I pleased...
  19. Most important project of my life

    It is important because it is the first project my six year old daughter did with me in my woodshop. It is made of 1/2 inch MDF. It is painted with sample containers of Behr Ultra latex paint. My daughter made the design and the color scheme and participated in cutting the pieces, on the...
  20. Happy Mother's Day!

    I had a flash of inspiration yesterday afternoon, and a few hours later, this was the result! I had my 5 year old son write "Mommy" on graph paper, penciled a grid onto the piece, and enlarged it to fit. Some time with a coping saw, and Voila! Needless to say, she loves it…
