  1. Projects Motorcycle model

    Motorcycle was a bit difficult but persistence helped, and I enjoy the challenge. I took a few liberties with design, so details may not match actual cycle. Used a bit of foil tape for chrome but have to use adhesive to stick to the wood. Wheels roll freely and steering works...
  2. Walnut Music Box with Swiss Movement

    My father Stanley ventured to Switzerland a few years back and picked up an amazing musical movement. He then designed a box around it creating this unique piece. This one-of-a-kind box houses the Swiss movement, playing the song "Memories." In burl walnut with cherry accent this box features...
  3. 1950s Cradle Refurbish

    We are expecting number two in October, and have learned our lesson with regard to buying expensive baby stuff that is only used for a VERY short period of time. This time around we are trying to be better about spending our money; hence this project. This craddle was bought by my grandmother...
  4. Music Stand

    This is my interpretation of a Wharton Esherick design. It is made from European Beech, sealed, then a top coat of lacquer. My design differs from the original to accommodate aa standing player; the original was designed for a cellist, a sitting player, so the relationship of the music holder...
  5. Steam bent music stand

    Steam bent white oak music stand, first steam bent project and it was a 100% success! Made out of white oak, mostly quarter sawn
  6. Pine Box Resonator Guitar

    Cigar Box Guitars are a real passion for me. It's actually my main woodworking area. If you don't know CBG's are primitive instruments build mainly with found objects and usually have 3 or 4 strings. It's what alot of poor folks in the south played tunes on. Many blues players started with...
  7. Custom Spalted Hard Maple amp cabinet for a Fishman Loudbox Mini

    This latest guitar amplifier project started off as a limited edition (cream w/black face) Fishman Loudbox Mini Pro - which I got a killer deal on because part of what made it a limited edition - the cream tolex, was completely trashed. So I whipped out this amazing piece of spalted hard maple...
  8. In Memory of....

    I made this box for my dad for christmas in memory of his father who passed away. I lost some of the pictures of it but will post them when I find them. This is a music box that plays the song "Blessed Assurance". I had installed the movement inside and lined the inside of the box with red felt...
  9. Ukelele Case from Recylcled Lumber

    This is ukelele case for a local musican. He plays ukelele professionally, and wanted a very durable case that could stand up to a beating if need be. And he wanted it made out of recycled wood, if possible he requested. So With luck I chose a very weathered piece of 3/4 inch ply and took...
  10. Iphone (or Ipod) Victrola Amplifier

    A local art gallery in Seaside wanted an iphone amplifier that would convert the sound from the lower speakers into louder sound to play in the gallery. I found an old Victrola Edison horn, and took the attached pieces apart carefully. Then I assembled an red oak box, and routed out a hole the...
  11. Three + years of Lap Steels

    Hello all, just tooting my own horn. Pictured is about 3 or four years evolution of my building Lapsteel guitars. For those who don't know, a Lapsteel sounds much like the more common pedal steel, though it is a much simpler instrument to build. It is played with a bar and finger & thumb picks...
  12. No strings attached My version.

    First off, I'd like to thank Dan, Eklund for the great Guitar pattern in the Holiday issue of SSW&C magazine about a year ago. This was so fun yet so hard for me to cut. It was a great challenge for me. I used 17 different woods in this. I like the colors I used but may do a second one and make...
  13. Cajon #1 is special

    Easily the one thing I've made more times than anything else is cajons. I've just never posted them here. When I started woodworking, it was because I wanted to make musical instruments. Then I fell down the rabbit hole of everything else you could make with wood (SOOOOO MUCH!) and the only...
  14. Cigar Box Guitar number 10

    This was number 10 in the Cigar Box Guitar series. It is a three string slide style blues guitar, but has pretty good action for fretting also. It was made for a dear friend of mine who has shared many guitar playing evenings with me and has taught me a lot a bout playing guitar. He truly is...
  15. Bucket Drum Kit for toddler

    My two year old is obsessed with drums of all kinds, so I figured I'd make him a drum kit that can be used outdoors (won't my neighbors be thrilled!) The frame is made of ~2 foot long western red cedar offcuts with a piece of scrap plywood for the cross piece. There are two five gallon...
  16. Celtic Harp - 34 strings

    My first project for LJ! I made this harp for my wife. It is made from quilted maple and has a spruce sounding board. Although you can buy it in kit form, I built it from scratch using blueprints I purchased from a company in Oregon. Here is a link to their website...
  17. Civil War rope tension snare drum

    I built two of these for a reenactment we have at Fort Davidson in Pilot Knob MO every three years. I copied a drum I found a picture of on an antiques website up northeast. I changed the company to a MO outfit, so this is not an accurate reproduction. The Mozart company were German as it turns...

  19. Big Sound from Wood

    March, 2017-A friend liked an earlier model so he asked for two for his daughters. They both amplify the sound playing on a smartphone. That's an iPhone in the photos. The smaller amplifier is made of a piece of hardwood from a log that a friend dropped off. The larger one is pine. When it...
  20. 8 String Guitar

    Here is my final RG8 style custom 8 string guitar. It took me quite a while to finish but it is finally done! Solid Bubinga body with a Wenge accent stripe. Maple and Wenge laminated neck with a matching Bubinga accent veneer cut from the same wood as the body. Rosewood fretboard with 24 frets...
