  3. Commissioned Stands

    Here are a couple of commissioned name plate stands I recently finished. I made these for the same person this one was made for. She liked hers so much that she requested two more and has recently ordered a third. I like to make them a little oversized so they also add a decorative element to an...
  4. First Veneer, Check out this Grain!

    This is a guitar pedal board that I made for a friend, he plays in the church band and needed a new one. I would call this my first real fine woodworking project. I learned lots of lessons from this but all things considered it turned out ok. The main wood is quilted sapele veneer, (thanks to...
  5. "Manta"

    Every once in a while I actually design something that isn't a box. I was asked by a good friend to make a table for his newly installed restaurant booth area in his condo. The booth design was a collaboration between him and I and the table design started out the same way. Once of his...

  8. Telecaster Electric Guitar from Grizzly Kit

    My buddy thought it would be a good idea to challenge my woodworking skills by building an instrument (one I don't play but he does…). I am naive, so I agreed. I chose the use the Grizzly Telecaster kit. The body is made of ash. It has a maple neck. For less than $150, I was impressed with what...
  9. Sjoelbak anyone? (Dutch shuffleboard)

    This was a project that I have wanted to build for a long time, and I finally got around to it. I promised the family it would be done by Christmas, and what do ya know! It's done a month early! For those of you not familiar with Dutch shuffleboard, it's a very fun and addictive game. Each...
  10. My third Chessboard

    Inspired by an episode of Woodworks, I used David Marks technique to create the light and dark squares (quilted maple and jatoba) and then put my own personality into the decorative elements. The corner 'watchtowers' are mahogany I treated with potassium dichromate to darken the wood. My first...
  11. Maple Coutertop with Quilted Front

    I work at a Salon in Central Phoenix. We just remodeled and I built the bar area for the clients to have refreshments at. It's a ~9+ ft. long, 20" wide", 2" thick maple countertop with a 3.5" quilted maple front. It's sitting on a birch plywood shelf I bolted to the wall I framed. It also has L...
  12. Vitamin / Medication Organizer

    Felt like going overboard and making an organizer for vitamins / medication from patagonian rosewood and quilted maple. Used a Shaper Origin to route the slot for the maple lid, the individual organizers and to engrave the days of the week. The sides are triple beaded which i think softens it...
  13. Jewelry Box for Ma

    This was my first major project, which when I look back, am shocked that it turned out as nice as it did. I found a fantastic piece of Quilted Maple at a place in Oregon just off of I-5. I believe the town was Jefferson; the lumber mill was family owned and the folks were happy to show me around...
  14. Boxes Of The Orient

    These are two boxes that I made as Christmas gifts. I tried to give them an oriental flair. The bases are made from poplar and the tops from quilted maple. The base is basic miter construction. On the smaller box I tilted my table saw blade at eight degrees and sawed off the sides. For the...
  15. Quilted Maple Bowl with Cocobolo Rim

    This is a quilted Maple bowl with a Cocobolo rim. I roughed out the bowl shape in the maple, then glued mitered pieces of Cocobolo onto the rim. Then I did the final turning on the bowl. The bowl was rubbed with many coats of oil over the period of a week or so, followed by a final coat of beeswax.
  16. Quilted maple and alder liquor cabinet

    Can you combine rustic and elegant in one piece of furniture? I sought to find out as I decided to build a liquor cabinet for our dining room. I wanted to use alder for the body of the cabinet to match the dining table, chandelier, and bench, but I wanted to have the doors present with a real...
  17. 18th Century Dressing Table

    This was a fun, yet challenging project. It was my first attempt at carving ball and claw feet. Built from Mahogany, using full width pieces, (22"wide boards), we closely followed the construction details found in the original 18th century Low Boy's. We did use compression methods to ensure the...
  18. Custom Office Desk

    After having built an interior for a home office, our client decided to have us design a desk for him. It had to fit into a small area, and allow both him and his wife to work at it together. It also had to fit the design motif of the room. The desk can be used as a one or two person desk, by...
  19. Home Office

    The custom desk project was built to fit into this room. We took the original design from the architect, and some comments from the owner, and came up with this. It is a combination of both of their ideas, plus a few of our own. The hardwood is Mahogany. The veneers are Quilted Makore. The...
  20. Demilune Tables - Part One

    I love working with veneer! The possibilities are endless, and the material is relatively easy to work with. One project I make often is Hall or Demilune tables. Photo one is a table I gave to a client. Unfortunately, I didn't bother to get a better shot of it, as it's pretty nice. This one is...
