  1. Coat Stand

    So I finally decided to join lumber jocks and chuck up a few of my projects. So here is my first posted project. Most of the time I make things because I want one or to give them away as a gift. This is one that I wanted. It is made from Australian River Red Gum and Tasmanian Oak. It is a...
  2. Jewelry Armory

    Well, actually it's a jewelry armoire, but anyone with enough bling to fill this unit up really has an arsenal that needs an armory 8^) What a long strange trip this has been! Purely a prototype that I still hope to sell, but plenty of goofs that tested my creative repair skills. The basics...

  4. TOOL CHEST RED GUM AND HUON PINE

    My new toolbox. The main part of the box is made from Red gum, draws are Huon pine and the draw bottoms are black leather. I estimate that this took me 150-200 hours to make. I spent most of these hours cutting, recutting and rerecutting the dovetails till they were perfect (in my opinion...
  5. Spatula 2 - Espátula 2

    Spatula of red gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensis). Tree native to Australia where it is greatly expanded, especially near waterways. The Red gum has the ominous name of "Widow Maker" for his ability to trimming without notice (often half the diameter of the trunk). Brittle wood tends to crack...
  6. Domino Holding Boards

    I received a request to make 8 domino holding boards. The sample shown was stained pine but the customer wanted pretty hardwood to be used and not stained. She chose Red Gum and Red Box Elder and I added Ambrosia Maple. They are 3/4" x 5 1/2" x 12". The slots are .388" cut in 1/2" at a 15...
  7. Sled

    This is a sled similar to the one I made in Arizona this year. It will make straight cuts but also miter cuts. I have it set at 45 degree right now for the job I need it for. It is 20" deep and 22" wide ..made from scraps. The bottom is 1/2" maple plywood, the back and front bridges are 1"...
  8. Turntable Plinth in River Red Gum and Birch Ply

    Hi everybody, I have just finished the my L75s turntable with the plinth made from layered Birch ply encasing the workings of the table surrounded by Australian River Red Gum. The corners are blind dovetails done by hand, this was a very difficult task as the wood was very seasoned and like...
  9. Eucalyptus Hollow Form

    Red Gum Eucalyptus Hollow Form. 5" diam X 9 1/4" tall. Turned to 3/8 wall. Finished with Tung oil / Varnish. Had a lot of fun with this one. This is the first tall hollow form I have had a chance to turn. I recently got a Capture arm hollowing system (Lyle Jamieson System), It works...
  10. Pool Cue Joint Protectors

    These are some pool cue joint protectors I made for a guy I work with that plays pool competitively. I recently got a Jet lathe but I had never really used one so I figured this would be an easy project to start with. They are made from Red Gum wood I got from a sawmill in Alabama. They are...
  11. From Firewood to Mallet

    From firewood to mallet. I've always wanted a Lie Nielsen mallet made by Blue Spruce. I like the shape, feel, and compact size. It's a beautiful mallet but out of my budget so I decided to make my own. I drive by a firewood lot every once in a while and love to stop by and see what I can find...
  12. New Dinning Room Table

    First post! Recently finished building our new home, so I decided to build our dinning room table. Found a deal on some red gum slabs and had a metal frame welded together. Placed cut pieces side by side and used epoxy to fill in gaps.
  13. Pivot hinge box

    This is my first attempt at a pivot hinge box and veneer. The box has Red gum sides and a red gum veneer panel inset into an white oak frame.
  14. Butterfly Bandsaw Box

    We had my granddaughter's 5th birthday party over the weekend. Her and her mom were talking about how she's collected lots of little jewelry and she really needed a jewelry box to keep the "good" jewelry seperate from the "play" jewelry. So, I started looking around at jewelry boxes that were...
  15. Shop-built thicknessing drum-sander

    It occurred to me (when I came to do one of Martin's Project Card Widgets) that I'd posted a blog of my sander around late February, but not yet done so as a project. So here it is. I've little to add since my blog, other than it does all I'd expect from it. Hand feeding is not the problem...
  16. Wedding Memorabilia Box

    This box was a commission from a lady in northern Minnesota for her daughters wedding. It measures 15 1/2" wide, 12 1/2" deep, and 4 inches high. The wood is Red Gum, with Striped Maple and Walnut accents. The sides of the box are canted inwards 2 1/2º and the interior is lined with white...
  17. Red Gum box

    As promise another box (told you i was bitten by the box making bug!) This one is made from Red gum that was destined to go in the fire. MUm though that i might be able to do something with it and rescued it from her brothers (my uncle). I certainly did do something with it and I think it turned...
  18. Ravenwood Wine Hutch

    The Ravenwood Wine Hutch is made from quarter sawn local Black Oak, Red Gum Eucalyptus, Sugar Pine and Oak-ApplePly. The highly colorful and figured Red Gum contrasts nicely with the Black Oak creating a stunning visual appeal. The inside has stem ware racks, 15 half-bottle racks and a small...
  19. A gift of the heart

    Hello all, here is the last thing I can make for Christmas this year. This is a present for my better half. This started as a chunk of walnut ( about 2" thick) that i've been holding onto for that special project. Well what better than a gift for the wife huh? I cut out the main body with my...
  20. Red Gum Turned Bowl

    This is the second bowl I turned in my wood turning class at Woodcraft-Clearwater. It was a beautiful piece of Red Gum wood. I knew it would look nice, but when I started wiping it with walnut oil and the color and grain and patterns popped out I was really pleased.
