  1. It's Bigger On The Inside...

    I'm a wee bit of a Doctor Who fan… If you haven't already figured that one out and I'm sure you can all relate to needing more shop space so I figured I'd turn the shop door into a Tardis. I haven't really figured out the interior dimensional changes as of yet but I think it has to do with the...
  2. Fallen Officer Plaque

    My contract at JSC recently had one of our Locksmiths, James William Anderson pass away, and the chief and Officer Anderson's supervisor asked if I would make a plaque to present to his family. I graciously accepted the offer and set off on this project. First, a little back story about Officer...
  3. Emergency Vehicles

    This little set was a Christmas gift for my little nephew. He has a few other cars like this, and so I thought that he might need a little emergency response ability for his growing town. :) These were alot of fun to do, and I hope to make more of them in the future.
  4. Police Batons

    Three batons I turned for the guys at work. First one is not functional and made of maple. The second is ebony and the third cocobolo.
  5. A new batch of "chubbies"

    Here is a batch of cars made the other weekend for our kids to play with. A few of them went home with nephews, but these are the ones that have found a happy home here in our living room toybox. I really love this style, and keep making more and more of them. At least the kids in the family...
  6. Presentation Box

    I made this for my father in law to display his police number, long service award, buttons, shoulder patches and helmet badges. The box is made from Oak and is finished in hard wax oil. A fun project to build which really shows off the badges at their best.
  7. 911!!! Call the Police!

    So a friend of mine recently retired after more than 20 years with the local Police Department. I am helping him out with a shadow box to display his personal items but wanted to do something from family and the heart. Do I make a fancy pen? Do I give him a gift certificate to a nice place...
  8. Police gear stand

    Playing catch up and posting projects I've recently completed. This is for my old partner, because he saw the one I built for myself and wanted one. It holds your body armor, duty belt rig, camera and radio chargers, and misc. Items carried while on duty. Its made with salvaged Grizzly baby...
  9. Fallen officer shadow box

    This built meant a lot to me as it was for a great friend. Her husband had been killed in the line duty years ago and she wanted something to display all of his items in. The badge cutout is the Cincinnati Police Badge.
  10. Criminal investigation division shadow box

    Shadow box Emblem for CID in the Marine Corps

    Walnut Wood - I just need to know... Does anyone else - when working with black walnut - think it smells delicious? I just want to eat it whenever I'm cutting it. I was recently cutting out a ball blank from a glue-up of walnut, maple, and wenge, the latter two of which don't really have a...

    UK to Colombia, the ups and the downs. I retired from the UK Police in 2006 after 30 years, and I think I only survived that period of time, because of my love of woodwork, I class myself as a late starter, I used to tinker with bits and pieces, but it wasn't until I was 21 and my first...
