  1. Unique Keepsake Box from a Beginner Lumberjock

    Hi everyone, I finally finished my girlfriend's Hope Chest that I have been working on for the last several weeks. I knew I wanted to make a keepsake box for her for her birthday, so while I was in 'woodworking mode' I decided to go ahead and make a keepsake box for her. I used the leftover...
  2. Hope Chest - My first 'real' woodworking project

    Here's the Hope Chest that I've been working on for the last several weeks for my girlfriend. Like the title says, this is the first real woodworking project that I've made. I've tinkered around a little in the past, but never made anything of substance. I never made any raised panels before...
  3. Balvenie (Scotch) Cabinet

    This is a project I have worked on for way too long, (Work and Football season have really taken their toll). In my continuing quest for better hand cut dovetails and building small cabinets, i built this out of Flame Birch and Peruvian Walnut. I purchased the Birch with no project in mind, but...
  4. Mission Table Lamp Small

    This mission lamp is the smallest and last of the three piece lamp sets I built. This lamp also was built entirely out of scrap red oak left over from other projects. There are two pictures showing the various parts and jigs I built. Now that I have those built and have made a few of them I can...
  5. Pen Swap Pens...

    Here's my contribution to the pens for the Official LumberJocks Pen Turner's Swap Round 2. Jr. Gentleman's in gold/Thuya Burl and a Slimline in silver/bubinga/maple. This swap has been so much fun… felt like I needed to do something nice to contribute. Hope that whoever down the line ends up...
  6. Elm pie end table

    Got several pies from a very old elm tree that I will be making into tables for fun. The pie is Elm and the base is Hickory that I got from a pile of throwaways from a lumber mill. The pie is actually a branch from a 150+ tree. There are 70 growth rings in each side. It was cut down in 2012...
  7. 2nd chair I made

    another project I've already posted but did'nt do justice to it with one photo. I turned both front legs and mortise and tenoned the rest. Finished with polyurithane. I also burnt the ivy in the back of the chair which was fun
  8. Very Basic Construction Lumber TV Stand From Douglas Fir 2X

    This was my first attempt at getting commissioned. I don't think I will do it again because I don't think the appreciation is out there for the amount of work it takes to build something like this. I know this for sure based on the low ball request that I must have been out of my mind to agree...
  9. Shadow Box 1

    Shadow box created for our outgoing 1SG. Basically built a two layer picture frame with 1/4" MDF for the backing.
  10. Mountain Ash Walking Stick

    The found wood for this walking stick comes from a backyard mountian ash trimming. Often very usable wood is sitting close by but we don't always notice it. The handle is made from a elk antler , the first year elk grow straight antler , the antlers grow as 2 single spikes known locally as a '...
  11. 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...
  12. Pallet coffee table

    This coffee table was made from a couple pallets I found. Usually there are gaps on pallets but I lucked out and found a couple that had no gaps for the most part except on the ends, no problem just took the skilsaw and cut those parts off. Then I trimmed out the sides with Douglas Fir 2×6 for...
  13. Walnut Stain Pallet Coffee Table

    Leftover materials from a previous coffee table project. The top and bottom sections of this table came from a pallet I found that had no gaps like they normally do. Sides are trimmed out with 2×6's bottom portion trim was from a 2×6 that I ripped with my skilsaw. 4×4's act as legs support for...
  14. Found Wood Spruce + Antler Cane

    This found wood cane uses spruce [no insects this time] with the outer bark removed down to the inner bark. I gentily warmed the bark to raise the sap in beads on the surface. Then with a rubber glove rubbed the sap onto the surface . I'd like to think this adds to the colour but I could just be...
  15. Carved Elk Button ,Diamond Willow Hiker

    The Mountian Lion was carved into a spur on the elk button [what's a elk button ?] . There wasn't enough of the little spur to carve both sides of the face but I think I like the way it turned out better . When you turn the the stick you kind of discover the mountain lion hiding there. The elk...
  16. Fancy Cane #2

    A second go at turning and shaping a cane. The top 1/3 of the shaft and the handle where hand shaped ,the bottom of the shaft was turned. The walnut shaft is part of a garage sale find , I have only 2 pieces left now [rats]. I chose lace wood for the handle for it's dark colour to match the...
  17. Hamilton Bench

    The Hamilton Bench is positioned near our front door and was designed with the storage for shoes and pocket essentials in mind. This project was constructed with one sheet of ¾ and a half sheet of ½ beech plywood. The edges were left unfinished to highlight the bench profile and finger joint...
  18. Diamond Willow + Antler Tee Handle Cane #2

    I don't think this is really a true tee handle cane. I left enough antler at the rear of the handle so the whole hand can grasp the handle without needing to hook the index finger in front of the shaft. But I was hoping to keep the option open to still use this cane as a tee handle by leaving a...
  19. TV Riser

    Well Mom got a DVD player for Christmas and needed/wanted a stand to put the TV so the player would be under it. She also requested it match her current furniture, so I matched the color, and breadboard end style of her coffee table… I also made her a set of taller legs in case she ever needs...
