  1. Fancy Wood Cane #027: Quilted Maple & Claro Black Walnut

    This is one of my favorites. I found some really nice quilted maple and decided it needed to be a 3 Dimensional piece to show off the illumination. This was one time the wood really spoke out to me and insisted that it had more potential than as a flat surfaced object. One can spend hours...

  3. Plant Stand -- Curly Maple and Quilted Maple

    I made 5 plant stands for Christmas gits in 2005. The plan is from Barry Black in the April 2005 issue of Popular Woodworking. This was one of the more challenging projects I have done, but very rewarding. Two of the stands have a cherry base and curly maple top and shelf. Two of the stand...
  4. Leaf Bowl 1

    I have been carving bowls, that resemble spoons for a while, but this is the first bowl that is in the shape of a leaf. It was carved from a piece of Quilted Maple from Oregon. I used a number of power tools for these bowls. After cutting out the basic shape with the band saw, I set the depth...
  5. "My Tell-Tale Heart"

    "My Tell-Tale Heart" box series was designed and created to celebrate my younger brother's wedding. Right from the start I knew I wanted to make them a special box. They got married on Halloween which was a big influence on the design. Taken from one the most famous pieces of gothic...
  6. Quilted Maple and Bubinga Hall Table

    This is probably my most favorite table. I made a jig to bend and laminate glue the curved strechers and lapped them with a lap joint.
  7. The last of the box binge, quilted maple

    I went on a bit of a bender making these boxes the last few weeks! While waiting for something to dry (usually the finish), I'd begin cutting parts for another one. A viscious circle! Slight changes from before. The basics Dimensions (interior) are 6" x 8" x 2-3/4", wood is 1/2". Frame/panel...
  8. Bent guitar Table -Sunburst

    I HAD THIS CRAZY IDEA OF BENDING A GUITAR TO MAKE AN ARTISTIC TABLE. THE INSPIRATION CAME FROM DALI MELTING CLOCKS. I WANTED TO MAKE SOMETHING SURREAL THAT LOOKED LIKE THE WOOD WAS FLOWING OR MELTING. AFTER 2 YEARS OF THOUGHT AND DESIGNING THESE ARE THE RESULTS. I USED BEAUTIFULLY FIGURED...
  9. Crab Butter

    Have you ever had high hopes for a project, took your time to do it right and give it that little extra, only to have it come out a few sandwiches short of a picnic? Well, this is my entry. I decided I would try out a larger pattern with the plugs I've been experimenting with and this is the...
  10. Veneer Lamp

    Veneer lamp inspired by the Luminous Display Pedestal in the October 2010 issue of wood magazine. The lamp is made from solid Bubinga and Quilted Maple veneer glued to Lexan panels. The finish is tung oil and Arm-R-Seal. A 65W CFL (equal to 300W incandescent) provides lighting.
  11. Secret Santa gift

    On our last trip to the wood store my daughter picks up this piece of wood from the bin. It has orange paint on one side and the other side was burned from a saw blade. It looked like a letter L and she wanted it. We get to the checkout counter and they tell her it is free and she brings it...
  12. coffee table

    My wife wanted a large coffee table made from quilted maple. This unit is 4ft square and made with resawn quilted maple I found on line. I used Baltic Birch plywood for the base and glued the maple to it. The surround is Goncalo Alves (Tigerwood). The apron is quilted maple and the legs are...
  13. Thr33 + 2

    My wife received a message from the lady who ordered the Thr33 boxes and said she needed two more boxes quickly, if possible, before the wedding. I checked my wood stash and had just enough African Mahogany left over from the last batch to make two more, but had to dive into my cutoff bin for...
  14. Jewelry Box keeps the boss smiling

    Here is a mitered spline jewelry box I made for my wife. I took my wife to pick the wood, and I think she did a fantastic job. It's made with figured walnut, and the top is made of two different veneers (quilted maple and birdseye maple) glued to plywood and framed by Peruvian walnut, with...
  15. Quilted Maple and Black Walnut Jewelry Box

    High school graduation present for our youngest daughter. Our second valedictorian…not proud at all. The woodwhisperer, Marc Spagnuolo, designed the jewelry box. He and Brian Benham provided the plans that made this project viable. I recommend their plans and videos highly. I watched several of...
  16. Quilted Maple tray set

    Hi, This started as a bowl, but I changed my mind and cut it in half. You can stack them and have the grain match. The wood is quilted maple. Larger one is 7+1/2W X 2H Smaller is 6+1/2W X 2H I cut the outside after assembly to make it look square while leaving a. Little of the original...
  17. Oseberg Bear Tine

    This is one of my new Tines that I made using some Quilted Big Leaf Maple I got from Oregon. It is very beautiful wood, but quite expensive. So it took a leap of faith to attempt to bend it. It does bend, but on my first attempt, I had some d-laminating with some of the heavy figure. After that...
  18. Hybrid Bandsaw Box - Custom Jewelry Box

    View on YouTube I had this amazing piece of quilted maple and I wanted to make a jewelry box out of it. One of my goals was to make so that the grain followed in all directions. Since this was a gift for my niece I also wanted to personalize it, so I added the "S" shaped divider. Oh, by the...

    These are some boxes I made for Christmas presents for my family. These are a spin-off of Andy's designer boxes he made for his grand kids. His are sculpted and shaped, which I would have liked to do with these, but I just did not have the time. Its always so busy this time of year. The boxes...
