  1. EZInlays.com FishFry Wood Inlay

    I am in the process of building a bunch of jewelry boxes, I'll post them when finished, for friends and family. On the lid of each box I am putting a decorative wood inlay made from kits supplied by EZInlays.com. In these pictures you can see the finished inlay looks like along with how the...
  2. Double Pinochle Box

    This is a birthday present for my oldest child (freshman in college). None of their friends know how to play Double Pinochle yet, but maybe this will be a good excuse to teach them! The box is made of Baltic birch and purpleheart. The card suits on the lid were routed by hand using a 1/16th...
  3. Child's Size Park Bench Restoration / Modify

    Four years ago I posted a project where I restored & converted 4 Park Benches, with cast iron legs & arm rests, into much more comfortable Arm Chairs… In this project I restored & converted my wife's Child size Park Bench, that she used for potted plants, into an Arm Chair. The bench originally...
  4. "Reindeer Games" Overlay Scroll Sawn Ornaments

    Ok - so all of you who read my blog have already seen these. But I find that I show them there and then I wait until the patterns are available on my website before posting them here in my project gallery and then I forget to do it! I don't want you all to think I am getting lazy - so I am...
  5. Powered iPod or iPhone Speaker

    This powered iPod/iPhone speaker is a mahogany cabinet with maple front and rear faces. I built in a holder for the iPod/iPhone into it, so it's easy to manage. I think my next one will have a dock connector, but those seem to be harder to source the hardware in order to put the components...
  6. Carpathian Elm and Myrtle Burl Entertainment Center

    This is the finished Myrtle and Carpathian Burl entertainment center. It's primarily the customer's design with a hint of Greene and Greene in the piece. The burls are 1" thick slabs strategically placed within Myrtle stock for structural stability (intermediate shelf). However, the top is one...
  7. FlutterBy EZInlays Inlay Kit

    These pictures depict the steps I followed while putting an inlay on one of the lids of the five jewelery boxes I am building. I call this inlay FlutterBy. This is one of the easier inlay kits provided by EZInlays. The only power tools I used was a plunge router and a RO sander. The...
  8. Two Dog Raised Feeder

    I recently adopted a brother and sister pair of golden retrievers. They were given up for adoption at age 8 due to the owner having to go to assisted living. I recently lost my Golden Sadie(my avatar) to lymphoma and we fell in love with these two the minute we met. I made this feeder..based on...
  9. New Closet For Mom

    This is a new closet I made for my mother, she has been wanting a new one for a while now because the one the contractor who built the house made was less than functional… unfortunately when I was half way done ripping that one out I realized I didn't take a "before" shot, oops. Basically it was...
  10. Plumbing Access Cover

    A magazine rack made of Bloodwood and Cherry. Made this to cover a square access hole for shower plumbing in a bathroom wall next to a commode to hold reading material. It was obvious what was there previously, not so now.
  11. Inlaid Coasters

    I made these coasters using my plunge router. They are about 4" in diameter and have been finished with TUng Oil and a polyurethane sealant. If you like them could I ask a small favor? ? The reason I'm asking these questions is because I've been trying to launch a small business for a few...
  12. Yin Yang Inlaid Necklaces

    If you've seen some of my work on other posts you know I like to make kits to assist the average craftsperson make cool things using a plunge router and inlay techniques. The Yin Yang Necklace pendant kit is my latest creation. I'm working on a video showing how simple it is to make these...
  13. My First Picture Frame

    Being new to woodworking, everything takes me a loooooong time. This frame was certainly no exception. I spent probably 40+hours on it, from designing it, to getting materials, to replanning, reworking, working, and finishing. I learned quite a few things along the way though, including what did...
  14. Simple Pine Door

    This project was meant to help me learn the in's and out's of the mortise & tenon joint. I didn't have any experience with them, so a simple door seemed low-risk. It had been in the back of my mind for over a year, but I had some time off over the holidays and finally decided to give it a...
  15. Candle Holder for Mother's Day

    I made this candle holder for my mom for Mother's Day. We had a family brunch yesterday and I presented it to her then, but explained I wasn't happy with the finish and that I'd work on it a bit more. Well, it's done now, so I'm going to deliver it today. It is made from walnut and hard maple...
  16. Fruits of My Passion

    I've been busy working on my house for the past month, but I finally finished this pair of koa tables. This is what I did: I made the cabriole legs and instead of padded foot I created sort of a paw (not a hairy paw-just a paw). As an added element I shaped the aprons with a french curve...
  17. Wood iPhone Dock/Amplifier--No Speakers

    I am going to start off by saying that I completely ripped this idea off. Please see www.koostik.com to view the original. So in viewing this website, I saw the amazing results that a ported dock could produce in terms of amplification off of just the crumby internal speaker on an iphone. In...
  18. My "Improved" Tage Frid Style Mortising Jig

    I needed a better way of doing mortises on a plunge router and after watching Frank Klausz's video on mortise and tenons. I figured a nice jig is the way to go. I found this article on Highland Wood Working's website and that was the base of my design. My improvements are the "double Fence"...
  19. Jatoba Blanket Chest

    This was my first mortise and tenon project. I mortised all the parts with a plunge router and the jig (pictured) and made my own loose tenons. Jatoba is the most beautiful wood I've ever worked with. Very hard and stable with red color with streaks of yellow and grey. The insets are anigre...
