  1. Wedding gift jewelry box with secret compartment

    Hhmm…... Been a while between posts! Made mostly from Tasmanian Blackwood & Huon Pine.
  2. The secret

    Here's a secret to the hope chest. Each arm contains a secret compartment for small stuff like jewelry, money, etc. The first photo is the finished product. The cap is resting next to the arm opening. The second photo is the first step. I created a template, then used it to rout a deep...
  3. Another Bandsaw Jewelry Box Gets a Mix Of Additives

    Pictured: I believe this is one of my best builds to date, This Bandsaw Jewelry Box is a combination of 3 woods, Alder as the core, wrapped with spalted hackberry front and rear with mahogany on the sides, mahogany for the legs, hand made mitered lid for the top which consists of Mahogany for...
  4. The Lost Day

    The Lost Day I really enjoy working with barn board sometimes because for the moment when I have finished a piece its already 100+ years old and how else can one make such a piece and have it looking centuries old? The odd weathered nail/worm hole that exists here and there can be played with...
  5. Granny's Tea Box Series

    The Granny's Tea Box Series The Granny's Tea Box puzzle design pays homage to my Granny. She introduced me to the joy of puzzles at a very young age (probably to keep me out of trouble for 5 minutes), and of course loved drinking tea herself. Serendipitously, the pint-sized tea boxes, my love...
  6. Cougar Chest

    The Cougar Chest I was looking around the shop one day looking to make something small to take to art shows. I had wanted to make something that looked like a miniature dresser and red seemed like a bright colour to catch your eye. I scrounged around and found some material, a mish mash of...
  7. Carpenter's Rule Puzzle Box

    The Carpenter's Rule This puzzle box is made from century old barn board that has been planned down to take the grey off, but still coloured underneath with many of the cracks in the top surface are still visible. To go with the old wood I recycled an old wooden yardstick and made them part of...
  8. Box with a Secret Compartment

    A hand made box with a secret compartment. It is made with white ash and cherry. The plans called for mitered corners but I used hand cut dovetails instead. I think dovetails are easier to make than a good 45 degree miter on four corners any day.
  9. Challenge Table by MsDebbieP

    Due to hormones running rampant as the 2009 Winter Awards deadline fast approached, my planned entry is now sitting in the trash wondering what the heck just happened! And so, with just a couple hours to go I have decided to "cheat" and enter my Side Table as my entry for the secret compartment...
  10. Tongue Drum Coffee Table with Secret Compartments

    For years we've avoided having a coffee table, on the theory that they just accumulate clutter. Turns out, at least the way we roll, the clutter accumulates anyway, it just winds up on the couch :-P. So I decided to build one. But I guess I couldn't bring myself to just make a table. One of...
  11. Sphere Factor

    Sphere Factor I am always looking for the next puzzle challenge, and one day I came across this vintage tin box that had ornate embossing on five sides. Very cool in that these boxes came standard with a softwood lining, usually Cedar which is great since you can glue wood parts easily ontop...
  12. Super Simple Secret Side Table

    Super Simple Secret Side Table …I think I just made a tongue twister there ;) I made these for awhile as I was exploring security based locking systems within furniture. In this case it is an end table that looks basic enough with a minimal design of vertical wood strips on the sides. Those...
  13. Orange Peel

    Orange Peel - The Cabinet Now, I am not much for painting wood, lets get that right out there. However, this piece is made from 3/4" veneer core plywood that I was able to recycle from the collapsable crates we would get for free from work as it was considered waste material once the bladder...
  14. New Year's Bombe Jewelry Box

    Box number 22 in my recent box series. This is number 8 in my Adventures into Shape. This box is built from pine, cedar, hickory? and poplar and the some features are mesquite and oak. It is a little different from my previous boxes as it does not have splines re-enforcing the edge glued...
  15. Simple love letter box with secret compartment

    This is a simple box that I built to sell on my Etsy site. It is finished with a crackle paint and has a secret compartment to hide all those love letters, pictures, and whatnot. I had originally made two of these boxes one for each of my daughters, and carved their initials on the covers.
  16. Knot Just Bookends

    So. I've finally finished my entry for the competitions. I don't expect to win, but I decided early on to give it my best shot - I didn't decide on the shooting weapon however, and it looks like I used a water pistol! More info on some thought processes in this blog. Anyway - bookends - we...
  17. Cousin Boxes

    When my wife and I became pregnant I decided to make a keepsake box for my daughter. I also had a nephew that would be turning 1 year old around the time when my daughter was due. I decided to make them both boxes that would be similar in size and shape but different in accents. My daughter's is...
  18. A Little Bar with a Little Secret

    This is a small dry bar that I built recently for a repeat client. This space is directly between their eat-in kitchen and their large patio, so it allows easy access whether they are entertaining inside our out. The construction is American birch and American birch veneer, stained with a rich...
  19. Oak Stairway with Secret Compartment

    For a few years I have wanted the stairway to match the hardwood flooring I put down. I ripped out the old carpet, and put down hardwood treds and then built the two newel posts, and installed the railings and balusters. It took a few months to complete and I'm glad it's done now. As a bonus I...
