  1. My first project - Bed Headboard and footboard

    Well, this was my first project. I guess I didn't buy into the start small theory. The Headboard and Footboard of this queen size bed were made from red oak, stained, then several coats of poly to finish. I didn't know really anything about woodworking going into this project, just what I had...
  2. Cherry Jewelry Box

    This is a jewelry box I was asked to make for a relative. The box is about 15 inches wide by 12 high, by 10 inches deep. The case is made from a single piece of cherry and the grain wraps continuously around the outside. The interior is pine and the dowels are walnut to give some contrast. I...

  4. Adjustable Bandsaw Circle Jig

    I built a circle cutting jig for bandsaw. This has been on my "to build" list for quite some time and I'm super happy that I finally got around to making one. My jig is largely inspired by a circle jig George Vondriska made. I loved his adjustable sliding dovetail feature and wanted to...
  5. Simple Lathe Cabinet with Drawers

    Lathe cabinet finally finished. Added the drawers and finally felt like my tools were in their proper home. First cabinet build, first drawer build for me and all the more challenging as I don't have a table saw. Certainly learned a lot. You can't see the flaws in the photos (I hope), but they...
  6. Keepsake Box, Maple & Walnut

    Another box from the book, "Box-Making Basics" by David Freedman. I liked this box from the first moment I saw it but it took me a while to feel comfortable with my level of box-making to tackle it. The body is maple and the top is a nicely figured walnut which you really can't see from the...
  7. still fruit basket

    my wife was looking through my pattern book and decided she wanted this one to go with her still fern plant I had done for her earlier. I was really dreading doing this one for all the details that was involve in it. it proved to be easier than I thought. hope you all enjoy them as I have had...
  8. Four Point Star Box

    I enjoy designing and making boxes that have an organic aspect to their shape. The Four Point Star Box is no exception. I started this project with a general idea for the shape of the box. I didn't want the box to have a flat top, but a smooth flowing cover that would reflect the four arcs that...
  9. Lathe cabinet

    My father-in-law passed away and I inherited some things from his shop, including a couple turning tools. I'm comfortable in my own shop, but I've never turned wood before. But, I figured, he'd be disappointed in me if I didn't learn something…so I jumped in and bought a lathe…and, of course...
  10. Ambrosia Maple Bowl

    My first try at turning ambrosia maple, and it turned really nice. The Bowl is about 8" wide and a lil more than 2 inches tall. Finished at 800 grit and treated with hot beeswax and mineral oil, and buffed out to what you see here. I left a few beetle tunnels near the rim of the bowl, to...
  11. Very Original Kitchen Cabinet

    First, let me say that this project was 95% or more built by my brother and I would consider this his first "major" project ever! He had a very specific need to fill and designed this cabinet from scratch. It consists of a shelf unit with two upper drawers and five boxes that fit into the...
  12. "Andy-esque" box

    So I got inspired by the boxes that Lumberjock Andy makes, but got too impatient waiting on him to finish his blogs, so…. This box is made from curly maple, curly cherry, and bloodwood. I finished it with poly and wax. It was the first time I actually used a grinder on a woodworking project...
  13. Maple kitchen with a cream lacquer

    Here is the latest kitchen and I really like how it turned out. The doors have a maple frame and an mdf panel. All the gables are mdf. Pantry with pull outs, soft close slides, soft close doors, cabinets to the ceiling with crown molding, laminate countertops and a quartz top on the island...
  14. Kids Kitchen #2

    This was a kitchen that I built for my wife's cousins youngest girl. When they came over she always played with the one I built for my kids and they asked if I could build on a bit smaller for her. Built out of 3/4" MDF, primed with an Oil Based Primer and then used a Latex Paint. The burners...

    Walnut table with metal industrial legs 1 3/4" solid black walnut top
  16. Curved tapered cutting board

    One of my advanced woodworking students is studying cutting boards. Here is one he made out of walnut and hard maple. He used a taper jig to make several of the pieces. He then decided to cut in some curves just to make it different. The challenge was gluing it and not having the pieces...
  17. F-16 Shadow Box

    F-16 shadow box I did for a customer. Turned out great I think.
  18. Lacewood Frame

    Knowing my penchant for interesting artwork, my wife brought back this very cool picture that was made with butterfly wings. While it took awhile to get to it, I finally made a frame for it. I should add that this is the second frame I made. The first one was in the same style but used Roasted...
  19. Workbench/Outfeed Table!

    I built the workbench/outfeed table out of scrap 2×4's and plywood. Its good to have a outfeed table to support long rip cuts.
  20. Another lamp, this time with part of a tree in it!

    This one of the many lava-flow lamps I did when living in Hawaii, a few miles from the active volcano. But it's the wood that's interesting here. All of it (except for the small trim pieces) came from the limb of this huge Australian red cedar (toona) tree in our backyard. The limb was...
