  1. Roadrunner Recipe Holder

    Hello LumberJocks… Made this from a bunch of scraps that I had…I know people use tablets but is a cute idea. Also on the side I do a little bit of carving to go with my Intarsia. I have been making Intarsia pieces for over 30 years now. Started slow with one or two per year, now that I am...
  2. Chalkboard magnetic recipe holder

    My wife likes to cook for us and I would see her trying to prop things up or use a magnet on the fridge but it was always inconvenient. So, I made her a recipe holder that she could use magnets to hold a printed out recipe to or use a chalk marker to write her own. I stained it and sealed it...
  3. Seahorse Box

    I recently moved from Ohio to South Carolina and my dear friends wife was looking for a recipe box. They moved here two years ago and asked me if I still did woodworking. I said "if I can borrow your garage to work in I will make you one". Well here is the finished product. It's oak to match...
  4. Recipe Box

    This is my first post as a new lumberjock. My mom kept hinting at wanting a new place for her recipes, other than the plastic bag/rubber band method. So for her birthday I decided to make her one instead of going to find one. I made this out of curly maple and bloodwood. It was my first attempt...
  5. Recipe Box for Mother in Law

    For mother's day I put together this cherry recipe box at my wife's urging. It keeps peace when you do what your wife suggest , especially for your mother in law!
  6. Recipe Box

    A padauk recipe box with self-adhesive letters from scrap-booking store. This holds several 4×6 recipe cards with a ledge on top to read while cooking. Originally gifted christmas 2008. I just added pictures of what the box looks like after 2 years of use (christmas 2010). The paduak has...
  7. Sugar Pine Live Edge Table

    I like the rustic style of having the live edge on my furniture. This table has what I call a restaurant finish (envirotex).
  8. Recipe Box

    I made this recipe box from 1/2" oak with 1/4" finger joints. This was my first attempt at finger joints and I quickly found they're only as good as the jig. Overall I'm pleased with the outcome of the box. The finish is a distressing technique I learned on an auto show. Spray paint the...
  9. Mother In Law's Recipe Book Case

    My mother in law asked me to build a book case for her recipe books. I'm a bit new to woodworking, so I had to really think this out. I started the project out with pine 1×10 for the sides and shelves. (I'm a poor woodworker, and lust for the day when I can use the exotic stuff.) I dado'ed the...
  10. Apple Bird Feeder

    These are 6 piece bird feeders that took about 30 minutes to make. Got the idea out of a scroll saw magazine. There is a peanut butter recipe that you can use also to feed the squirrels with. I think the apple is easier and less expensive though.
  11. Recipe Box w/ Secret Recipe Compartment

    This is a recipe box that I made for my new sister-in-law for her wedding this weekend. My wife had the idea to send everyone invited a couple of recipe cards and have them send them back to us with two of their favorite recipes. She volunteered me to make the box to put them in :) I decided...
  12. Cherry Recipe Box

    After I made a recipe box for my daughter-in-law, she asked me to make one as a wedding gift for a close friend of hers. Since it was a wedding gift, I decided to put the interlocking rings on the lid. The box is cherry and the splines and rings are koa, and it features rounded sides. The box...
  13. Longleaf Pine Recipe Box (Including Mistake)

    A little recipe box I made to motivate more cooking at home. It's made from antique flat-sawn southern yellow longleaf pine that was salvaged from old doors. I'm thinking about making a few more of these as I have a bit of this wood left. I was also looking for an excuse to try making finger...
  14. Recipe Box - Purple Heart and Big Leaf Maple

    I made this recipe box for my daughter's birthday. I made something similar for my wife and she liked it. I'm really not a "purple" kind of guy but she likes purple heart. I have a piece of Big Leaf maple that I used some of to veneer for the top. Into the top I made a flip down lid that...
  15. A Recipe Box with Box Joint Inlay and Mitered Corners with Splines

    Like the title says this is a recipe box with box joint inlay and mitered corners with splines. I made this project for another content creator and even turned an egg (her mascot) for her on a power drill. Full process can be seen in my Youtube video below. Box is made with 3/8in curly maple...
  16. Tamboti Footed Rice Bowl

    Small rice bowl with decorative bead turned from Tamboti, or African Sandlewood. It is finished with blonde shellac and a thin wax coating. The curve is nearly perfect, though not…the story of my turning it seems. I am a furniture maker by education but only "turn at" wood I fear.
  17. Appreciating Grandma's Cooking - Recipe Box

    Just before my grandfather died I was able to write him a letter to try to capture some of what he had meant to me. This box is a non-verbal attempt to express some of the same thoughts for my grandmother. I will be adding a verbal attempt too, but this was the first step. The wood is walnut...
  18. Mahogany Recipe Box

    The third box in my 21 box series/"class" Resawn left over Mahogany decking, approx 6.5×7.25×4.5 A bit out of scale to the original project in the book (sized for 3×5 cards) I only added to the width and height to accomodate 4×6 cards. looking at the overall shape, It should be longer, but...
  19. Recipe stand

    I asked some friends on facebook what to do for my next marquetry project and a friend from high school suggested a hibiscus. I found a coloring book page online and converted it to a marquetry pattern. This was my first somewhat difficult marquetry project. I wanted to make the final...
  20. Refurbed Computer Desk

    I got this typical office computer desk 10 years ago from my brother-in-law - his company was buying new equipment and giving away the old. I used it that way several years, but when my son took wood shop in high school about 3 years ago, I had him make the wood panels to replace the formica...
