  1. 'CherryCows' Native Flute - Birdseye Maple

    (WOW - I just got an email yesterday from this group for the first time in 5 years! Seems, that somehow my account had been put in limbo by the system….glad to be back! I have updated my profile.) This Native Flute is made of Birdseye Maple. The second photo shows the Fetish-block that sits...
  2. I had twins!

    Wow, I had twins! Actually, I wanted to try a "production run" of my model, "The Keene" to see how much quicker I could produce them on a per basis, and yes, it was a time saver. Anyhow, they are maple, quilted maple, and paduak. The ceramic leaf tile is handmade by a local artist, and one has...
  3. Paduak, Maple and Ebony Drink Coaster Set

    We had no nice coasters for our drinks, and the wife's birthday was coming up, so….. The caddy is quarter-sawn Paduak, trimmed with ebony; the coaster bottom is maple, as is the caddy's bottom.
  4. Sierra

    It is up for debate of what wood this is, but I the consensus seems to be Paduak.
  5. Martial Arts Sword Holder

    This is a custom request. He wanted a sword holder for his martial arts practice swords, but he wanted it different than the typical sword holder found online. The ones online have holders made from a single plank with a "S" type cut outs to hold the swords. In mine I used 45 degree...

  7. Tooth Brushing Stool for a 2 year old

    Need to catch up. Built this stool so my granddaughter could reach the sink to brush her teeth and wash her hands. Made from Ambrosia Maple, glued and screwed with Paduak plugs. Sanded to 400 and waxed. I believe it was a little over 14" tall.
  8. "Spiker"

    So I thought to myself…why not do a design where the splines support the legs. It seemed a little uncommon but I knew I could make it work….and the design work for "Spiker" began. To make it even more of a challenge I made the shape of the box taper upwards. By doing this each of the three...

  10. "Fall" & "Winter" Star Tables

    I finished this pair of small side tables a couple weeks ago. They're made of a number of 45-degree cut diamond shaped pieces that are all the same size (about 2 inches from point to point on the long side). The regularity of each piece and 45-degree angle naturally creates the 8-sided star...
  11. First Box in the New Shop

    This is my first box project in the new shop. It is made from maple with simple miter joints and walnut splines. The top is beveled padauk. I was pleased to see that I could cut nearly perfect miters on the Proxxon table saw. It had no problem cutting crisp lines on 1/2" stock. Now that the...
  12. Paduak Cajon

    We've had a recent addition of a friend new to woodworking but willing to learn who has decided to spend some time around the shop. I've been teaching him the basic techniques required to dress lumber, glue up boards, use a router and sanding techniques. All of which were used on this project he...

    This is the third Bandsaw Box I have made, 2 more in the works. It is made of Canarywood I bookmatched to create the unusual top and I liked that everything lined up for it. 6 coats of spray poly preceded by a seal coat of shellac. The handle is made from a piece of Paduak and it bled some...

    Built these two boxes as going away gifts for my Command Sergeant Major and Battalion Commander. The boxes are constructed with Paduak, Zebrawood, and Hickory. Designs on top were added with a Colwood Burner by hand and the finish is 3 coats laquer and 4 coats johnsons paste wax. I love the...
  16. Exotic Wood Cutting Boards

    Long time reader, first time poster to Lumberjocks. As an amateur woodworker, it's hard to beat the level of satisfaction from the creation of something as simple as cutting boards. Here are two of my latest examples made from paduak, lacewood, canary, ash, maple, walnut, cherry, and pau...

  18. "The Rising"

    Well, "The Rising" is the box that started my love for box making. It was the fist box I ever made. It all started over a couple drinks with a friend/coworker. He told me he wanted a box to hold his wifes family bible and he wanted me to design and build it for him. I don't know if all of you...
  19. fireman ruler

    another growth chart ruler done, this one they requested something firefighter themed (my friend who commissioned it, her husband is a firefighter). My wife found a fire fighter decal that I really liked, so I scrolled it out of paduak with plans of just inlaying that into a red alder ruler...
