  1. Photo Box & Frame

    Well, this is the last of my holiday presents I made this year. I made my parents a cutting board, and my older brother and his wife a Photo Album. This is for my younger brother and his girlfriend. I was originally going to make them a photo album as well, but my concept and design took a...
  2. Bent Ply Photo Frame

    Bend an odd number of layers of thin bendy ply around a form (including a piece of veneer with marquetry as the front and back layer). Cut the formed piece to shape using a scroll saw. Secure the clear acrylic photo holder with hand made (and threaded) nuts and bolts made on the metal lathe.
  3. Clock

    I made this clock from a cut off at a local mill. I ordered a clock kit from Lee Valley and used a photo or my girlfried and myself. I used my 4" x 24" belt sander to flatten the surface where the photo was mounted. Getting it to stand was a little tricky but with some patients and my 6" x...
  4. Mother's Day gift, Recipe holder turned into a photo holder

    Before Mother's Day, my 4 year old son and I made this photo holder. I got the idea from Steve Ramsey's recipe holder. The bases were made from some left over scraps that were cut from some bracelets I made. I cleaned these up on the lathe and burned some lines in them. My son used the drill...
  5. Photo Frame

    Just something I knocked out on a cold rainy day… between little one naps of course ;) Curly Maple with an inlay and some routing.
  6. Photographing our Projects

    A few have asked me about how I photograph my projects. I will give a simple run down on how I do it. It may not help everyone, as I have some equipment that most people don't. I'll post a few of my most recent boxes and tell you how I shot them. I like to "feather the light on my subjects...
  7. photo carve

    Hi everyone, This was my first attempt at a photo v-carve. It's just maple and black paint with a satin clear, and of course the 2 models, my son and daughter. carved with a 60 degree bit in 2 diagonals at a max depth of .035 Also want to say Thanks! to everyone here. Your projects, tool...
  8. photo carve 2

    Hi everyone, This was my second attempt at a photo vcarve. Wood is maple, 60 degree v bit at .035 max depth. This one was obviously for the SPCA. I also do screen printing and they buy a lot of tee and sweatshirts from me. When the girl picked up the last order she saw my first attempt and said...
  9. Photo Album Cover

    Photo album cover that I made for my girlfriend last week. I was experimenting with different materials for inlay - the branches/vines are made out of lead solder! Not the cleanest job, but it was a fun little project with some board scraps I had lying around. I had a couple of people tell me...
  10. Protecting your fanhood & Tabletops

    Just a quick little project from that same branch I made the iPhone dock out of. I'm really liking the easiness of the photo transfer through laserjet printer and lacquer thinner. For those who have done this method, what seems to work best for you?! Sometimes I get a flawless transfer the...
  11. Reclaimed timber picture frames

    Here are some picture frames made from reclaimed and scrap stock. I wanted to make 2 frames to house my son's self portrait lino prints. So I got to work on some smaller frames from cut-offs - all keyed mitres. The darker wood came up beautifully after a 'mahogony' stain and some Linseed Oil...
  12. Color gum printing on wood - 1950's trip to Carlsbad Caverns in 57 Ford

    I used the gum printing process to print a photograph onto a pine board. Gum printing is an old photographic process which was first done in the 1840's, and uses gum arabic and ammonium dichromate as the light sensitive emulsuion. First you print a photo onto a transparency, then spread the...
  13. Vintage Louis XV Photo Frame

    This photo frame is one of my personal favorite items that I offer in my Etsy Shop. It has an antique elegance to it's design, and is free standing. This frame is cut from 1/4" Baltic Birch and is designed to hold any 4×6 photo. (Frame backing made from a combination of 1/8" and 1/16" Baltic...
  14. Three layer 5"x7" picture frames

    Following a trend lately, I've been "raiding" my wife's stash of project supplies that have sat dormant for some time. The latest score was literally 100's of mattes with backers, all 5×7. That settled it, I needed to make some frames post-haste. I always wanted to try some layered frames that...
  15. Flexible Photo Frame System

    My wife and I just had our kitchen remodeled, and we wanted to fill a long blank wall beside the table with a grid of framed photographs. We had several requirements: We needed to display photos of various sizes (8"x8", 8"x6", and 9"x6") and orientations (landscape and portrait). We wanted...
  16. Photo prop

    Made this for my wife from reclaimed lumber room another project. She uses it as part of her photography business. She added a small bed for it and viola! Currently making another but a four post canopy this time.
  17. China Cabinet in quartersawn white oak

    Since this was to be a "Stickley" design, it seemed appropriate to make it of quartersawn white oak. We found a source, rented a truck, and made a day of it. Turned out I bought too much, so used the leftovers to make the accompanying server. One mistake: I was so keen on getting a great...
  18. Custom Photo Album

    A close friend passed away this week, and some of his friends and I wanted to put together some pictures for his family. We decided that we wanted to build a nice photo album to put them in, and I came up with this. We started out with a 3-ring binder, and drilled out the binder portion...
  19. Unique Photo Frames

    Here are some unique picture frames I made as Christmas gifts last year. The one for my buddy Gary was a surprise, as I got all the photos from his website… My friend Annette works with the local Habitat for Humanity and their Women's Build (these are their logos)… And I thought this was...
  20. My 1st box: wedding photo box with inspiration from EyeOfTheJen and hinges from Shipwright

    After seeing the photo box that EyeoftheJen made as a wedding gift, it inspired me to try something similar. I have always admired Shipwright's hinges and thought this would be a good place to give them a try. His SketchUp and excellent tutorial made them about the easiest part of the...
