  1. Custom Library Build

    Finished a room renovation to convert my living room into a library. I added in a coffered ceiling and a gas fireplace too. There is a link below to a video if your interested in the finished project or want to see the details of how i built the room. If you have any comments or suggestions...
  2. Folding Stepstool

    Here's another bathroom stepstool I made for my boys. It had to fold because when placed in front of the sink the bottom step would have blocked the door from opening and closing. It's made from a single 6'x14" board of 7/8" African Sapele and has a great color/shimmer when finished with...
  3. father's day skinner knife

    I ordered a couple knife blanks from WC a couple months ago just because they were on sale. I thought they would make perfect father's day presents, so I planned on making my dad one, and one for Eric. Eric decided he would rather I make his for his dad, rather than him(well, I could make his...
  4. Hope chest

    This is the Hope chest that I made for my daughter this Christmas. I am very please with the results. It is made from wide sapele. The top is only two seperate boards and the glue line all but disappears in the grain. The sides and ends were curved using with the curved planing jig that I...
  5. Screwdriver handles

    I participated in HokieKens screwdriver shaft purchase last spring and finally found the time to turn some handles. I had some Padauk, Sapele, and Bubinga cutoffs laying around that were the right size so glued them up and turned them out. I used Padauk for the Phillips, Bubinga for the...
  6. Photo Box & Frame

    Well, this is the last of my holiday presents I made this year. I made my parents a cutting board, and my older brother and his wife a Photo Album. This is for my younger brother and his girlfriend. I was originally going to make them a photo album as well, but my concept and design took a...
  7. Recipe Box

    Here is a quick recipe box that I built for my mother for mother's day. She seemed to like it very much. It is made out of Sapele
  8. TWCA Cam Cover

    After making a handle for my TWCA Cam, I thought I'd better protect the cutting edge before it gets dinged so I sketched out a number of designs and this was the one I chose to take forward. It is made from an offcut of sapele with a little bit of beech for the toggle. I drew out my design on...
  9. Stand up Writer's table

    So this is my first piece of furniture. It is also my first LJ project post. I have been a LJ lurker for a year or so. I really enjoy the ideas and talent on display. This desk was designed to be the proper height for my 4'11" wife to stand and write; that is why it looks a bit short. The base...
  10. Odd boxes

    These are from a commission to make 10 small boxes as Christmas presents for a single extended family. Let's hope they go down well.
  11. Varmints Beware! (in Yosemite Sam's Voice)

    Here's a rootin', tootin', shootin' airgun for the likes of ya! This is a Crosman 1377 pump airgun that I made this stock and pump arm for. The wood is sapele with some quartersawn sycamore and black walnut for the grip cap. I used polyurethane in satin for the finish. Any comments or...
  12. No Soliciting Sign

    The adventures in free-hand routing continue. For a while I had a kind of ugly "No Soliciting" sign I'd made with a white oak veneer over some scraps of mahogany with the milling machine, but it was kind of ugly. Also, we had some punk say "... but I'm not soliciting, I'm canvassing!", so we...
  13. End Grain Trivet (Proof of Technique)

    I'm working on a special birthday gift for my mother, whose birthday is August 4. I made this small trivet today to test cutting, clamping and sanding techniques, and to assess the time and effort required for each step. It's made of scrap woods: sapele, maple and walnut. Each piece is a ¾"...
  14. Fawn display case

    This display table was made for the fawn. Material is sapele with maple leaves
  15. Tile topped Table in Sapele with Maple Inlay

    More of an art piece than a utilitarian piece I guess. But I love the way Sapele plays off Maple and vice-versa. The table is about 20×20 and 30" height. The inlay was difficult to cut in the hard Sapele but came out nice. The finish is Linseed oil and Polycrylic, with a top coat of wax. I...
  16. Office Bookcase

    This is the first true woodworking project I have completed in 10 years, and my second ever (the first was a night stand I built in high school shop class.) Ah the joys of being done with school, buying a house, and having enough room to set up a decent shop! The purpose for this project was to...
  17. Wall Hanging Plane Till

    This comes from Chris Gounour's plans in Fine Woodworking magazine, modified to work in my shop. Turned out to be nice, safe storage for the planes. I didn't add the shelf he has on the bottom of his, thinking that I could always add it later. The case of the till is made from sapele, with...
  18. Pattern of Four Box ( aka Snakes)

    This is 'one from the vaults' demonstrating veneered box work, for those of you interested in investigating this sort of thing (spalm are you looking). This one is a cube, about 4" on a side, the background veneer is Sapele with a Sycamore and American Black Walnut pattern. As you can see the...
  19. Footboard bench Sapele, Wenge, and White Oak

    So these are 3 footboard benches I made for charity. One was a rotary club, one was for the Waldorf School and one was for Keller Williams in Decatur. The combinations are Sapele and Wenge, Sapele and White Oak, and one is only Sapele. I liked all combinations. They are finished with Waterlox...
  20. Jewelry Box

    This is a Jewelry Box I made for a customer to present to his wife on their wedding day. It is made from Sapele and Birdseye Maple with Peruvian Walnut accents. I learned a bunch from making this project including making a miter key sled and installing quadrant hinges. The finish is Danish Oil...
