  1. Door Harp

    First off I want to thank Steven Marin of Woodworking for Mere Mortals http://www.WoodworkingForMereMortals.com for the idea! As a new woodworker I found this to be a good challenge to my budding skills ;-) I started my picture journal a little late so here's where I started. I need a chunk...
  2. 2nd chair I made

    another project I've already posted but did'nt do justice to it with one photo. I turned both front legs and mortise and tenoned the rest. Finished with polyurithane. I also burnt the ivy in the back of the chair which was fun
  3. Turned Lidded Boxes

    Haven't posted any of my projects in a long time. Here are some lidded boxes I made a while ago. One is cherry and walnut the other maple and a piece of mystery wood. Maybe rosewood. We use the maple one as a sugar bowl but my wife hates the cherry one. Not sure why. I like it though.
  4. 4D Puzzle

    This was a super crazy puzzle to build. First you should know the 4D stands for the 'Four Directions", N, E,W,S There were four customers. Each one representing each of the directions. Each of the four units came with codes written in ancient heiroglyphs that only one of the others would have...
  5. Cigar Box Puzzle #14

    Cigar Puzzle Box #14 As with each cigar box, there is this quiet voice beckoning from inside that hollow, empty shell, …one that can barely be heard, it whispers, …"Kel, I yearn for a solution for which no question exists". "Please give me a question so… that others might ask of me, …let me...
  6. Mystery Wood - Trying to identify

    I've made two turnings from this wood that was salvaged from a friends, neighbors, firewood pile. He had collected many blocks of similar size from a local central Indiana lumber mill, although I don't know which one. Also in the pile were many blocks of red and white Oak. These are lighter in...
  7. Rocking Chair for the WIN!!

    We have an upcoming baby shower to attend. This will be a who is who kind of party, very large amount of people who WILL turn this into a contest. I'm sure everyone knows these people…the one upper. The will be about 70 of those people there. Either way I decided to give a rocking chair a whirl...
  8. VOTIVE CANDLE HOLDER

    This was just finished yesterday (3/13/14), but was supposed to be a Christmas gift in 2012 (sad, I know). It is Cedar and some dark wood that was given to me. That wood shimmers in the sunlight and smelled like soap when I cut it. Maybe you all could help me out with that. I will call this...
  9. Carpenter's Rule Puzzle Box

    The Carpenter's Rule This puzzle box is made from century old barn board that has been planned down to take the grey off, but still coloured underneath with many of the cracks in the top surface are still visible. To go with the old wood I recycled an old wooden yardstick and made them part of...
  10. Cube in a cube thingy

    I had a few chunks of cedar on the saw from the deck we're building and decided to try one of these cube in a cube gizmos. Surprisingly fast and easy. I probably have 15 minutes in it. Cedar is not the ideal material because the center cube got a little beat up. Very easy to sand and needs no...
  11. Cube In a Cube - Puzzler

    Recently, I saw a video that someone posted from a local woodworking club that I belong to in Indiana . It showed how to make a cube in a cube. At first glance I thought how the heck did someone do that? It must have been whittled. Turns out, it's a really simple trick with a drill press and...

  13. 18 Again - Reprogrammable Puzzle Box

    Hey Guys, I was gifted with these lovely painted pine boxes from one of my puzzle friends who loves how I upcycle used boxes. These particular ones were painted by a Romanian woman working to feed her family and I thought what better way to spread the Love. Before I thought I was confident in...
  14. Blackout - Upcycled Puzzle Box

    I came across this funky wood box, or something… The original boxy thing had the diamond shapes already out of the three sides and doors, and I added all the exotic wood parts. To me it already had a look like an antique lantern, though there was no evidence it was used as such, hmm, maybe an...
  15. LxWxH - Vintage Puzzle Upgrade

    Hey Guys, I found another in the files, maybe this one you can make out more detail. This box was a souvenir box from somewhere tropical that has a sliding front panel that unlocks the lid when retracted. I saw an opportunity to build on what was existing. Basically, there is a draw bolt...
  16. My Very Own Copy of the Mystery Mallet

    When I first got into woodworking I didn't have the money to buy a mallet (sad, I know). So I made one out of maple that has served me well. But I always wanted one like this. Fast forward several years and Popular Woodworking started the buzz on this Mystery Mallet by Roy Underhill. When I...

  18. Mystery Wood Pen

    The only wood that I can identify is the cocobolo used for the darker rings. I can't identify the rest of the wood. CA finish.
  19. First Bowl

    This was my first bowl. How cool that others can check it out, too. I am still learning so I don't have a bowl gouge. I used a spindle gouge mostly (not a roughing gouge though), and like many beginners, sort of took a guerrilla approach and used what felt right. I will learn more with time...
