  1. Builidng an IOWA Class Battleship

    A weekend project from the most recent issue of Wood Magazine - this Iowa Class Battleship. I added a layer of walnut to the hull to show off the waterline and also added a flag. As a retired Navy Chief, this is a great project. This ship measures 3 feet long by 7 inches wide and weighs just...
  2. Combat Air Crew Shadowbox (my first attempt at a shadowbox)

    This is my first attempt at making a shadowbox. There are alot of things I would do differently based on what I learned while making this but overall Im happy with the end result and the experience of making it. I will get a band saw prior to attempting another custom shaped shadowbox because...
  3. Photo Image Transfer To Wood

    As I was surfing the YouTube waves I came across photo transferring to wood so I gave it a try. I didn't wait long enough for it to completely dry before I started removing the paper so it didn't turn out as good as it could have. So after a little roughing up with sandpaper and putting a coat...
  4. US Navy Fleet Map Going away gift

    This is a wooden map 4'x2' with the continents cut out of cork so once hung it's functional art. I think it came out nicely.
  5. Navy Chief Goat Head Plaque

    No goats were harmed during the creation of this project…. This is the second project I've done, only the head for this one though. These aren't hard project and a lot of fun to make. Thanks for looking.
  6. Chief Petty Officer Charge Books

    A group of Navy Chief Petty Officer "selectees" approached me to help them finish their charge books. The front was simple, the back took a little more work to cut the art pieces and get them aligned so when you stacked the five books together they would make one image. A little over 2 hours...
  7. Firehose Shadow Box

    This was fun project for one of my departing Shipmates. The flag is a replica of our ship's battle flag…USS Harry S Truman. The flag is made from an expired fire hose from the ship. Everything was cut out with the scroll saw. The mustang in the center represents someone who has come up from...
  8. F-14 tomcat challenge coin display

    Just finished this 33" tomcat silhouette for a coworker. It's made from maple, walnut, and sepele. Took about 8 hours to complete. For the finish I used 4 coats of dewaxed super blonde shellac, then buffed with 0000 steel wool and paste wax. I just used a 1/4 keyhole bit for the back so it can...
  9. Flag Displays

    I made these for going away gifts for a couple of guys I work with. The flags were flown during our last deployment. I made two coin slots in each base, one is to hold my ship's command and the other is to hold a coin from the squadron who flew the flag during a combat mission. You know when...
  10. War Chest

    Commemorative Chest commissioned for a retiring Navy Master Sergent with 30 years service. It was constructed from Alder and stained to match existing decor. The outside was a Java General Finishes Gel Stain coated with a precat satin lacquer. The inside, just a clear water based ML Campbell...
  11. Aircraft Carrier and F/A-18 Hornet Challenge Coin Display

    I made this one out of Sapele and a touch of maple for the canopy. In the past I have used the actual wings worn on our uniforms but I decided to try carving…..I am very pleased with the look. I finished up with a few coats of Arm-R-Seal with light sanding between coats. She is ready to...
  12. Aircraft Carrier Coffee Table (USS George H.W. Bush CVN-77)

    A few weeks ago I was approached about making an aircraft carrier coffee table for a retiring Master Chief. I searched for a few days to find thick enough stock for the top and I made a joke to my wife that our kitchen table would be perfect to cut it out…...after a search on Craigslist I found...
  13. Final Build

    Here is the final build of the retirement chest for a good frined of mine that is retiring after 20 years of Naval Service. The Shadow box is inset into the chest and removalable for display. The initial build photos are under my project showcase. Forgive the quality of the photos. Thanks...
  14. Class plaque

    Class plaque I made in June, 2000 while attending "Knife and Fork" school at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida. I did the work in my barracks room with no power tools and only a knife and screwdriver. I believe the wood is walnut from a tree that was cut down on the base. The gold lettering...
  15. Plaque

    This plaque was made for a retiring brigadier general for the marines 238th birthday. Over 150 hours of work!!! Walnut, yellow heart and bloodwood.
  16. Marine Wall Art

    My wife and I are Navy. I left the service in 2013. But she is a medic currently stationed with the Marines. I like doing projects for the families that live around us. This is going to be a homecoming gift for my neighbor. Glad to have my drinkin' buddy back. This is made from the lid of an...
  17. F/A-18 Gun Barrel Plaque

    This one is made of ambrosia maple, walnut and paduke. It is fairly heavy so mounted with a French cleat.
  18. Military Challenge Coin Display Case

    The person I made for asked to hold about 90-100 coins. I used the craig pocket jig to attach the runners from the back. I hate using nails. The center Navy Officer crest is a photo transfer. The maple seemed to work better for the transfer and gave some contrast to the mahogany.
  19. Sword display

    Navy officer sword display
  20. 2018 Mallet Swap - A bunch of firsts.

    So I'm a new woodworking, only been trying this hobby for about 6 months and pretty much the extent of stuff I've done is raised gardens, a gardening workbench and a dog house. Nothing fancy at all. Well the fine delinquents we have here talked me in to joining the mallet swap even though I...
