  1. Living room wall unit

    This is a wall unit I just finished. I used partly clear pine part poplar. The face of the cabinet is tung and grove with a bead. It all needs to be painted still. The fire place was build by a mason. We collected the rock at the beach here in Oceanside. The mantel and hearth I cut out of...
  2. Nicks Sticks - Mechanical Puzzle

    This was going to be a fun and challenging puzzle box right from the start, especially since I know a guy named Nick that just loves puzzles! There were two objectives on this one. I wanted to qualify this piece to being something that would fit into my 'Stem to Stern' category, which simply...
  3. 4D Puzzle

    This was a super crazy puzzle to build. First you should know the 4D stands for the 'Four Directions", N, E,W,S There were four customers. Each one representing each of the directions. Each of the four units came with codes written in ancient heiroglyphs that only one of the others would have...
  4. Cigar Box Puzzle #14

    Cigar Puzzle Box #14 As with each cigar box, there is this quiet voice beckoning from inside that hollow, empty shell, …one that can barely be heard, it whispers, …"Kel, I yearn for a solution for which no question exists". "Please give me a question so… that others might ask of me, …let me...
  5. Bear Clan Chest

    Bear Clan Chest This rather large and bulky piece was one of my earlier Security Focused furniture designs. The doors and drawers below are housed within a inner compartment that moves back and forth on a set of wooden rollers, when its unlocked anyway. The main pillars seen infront block the...
  6. Built in Bookcase Door

    Background I was headed to a friends for a long weekend when he requested I help him build a bookcase as a door for what he would turn into a hidden room. He didn't really have a plan, only some videos he had seen from youtube and his only tools were a drill and sawhorses. On top of that we...
  7. Skull Cage

    Skull Cage Every once in awhile I see an opportunity to lock up something that is unusual and this Skull shaped vodka bottle seemed to be just the right thing. The vodka (if you haven't seen it) is special in that it was tripple filtered through crushed quartz crystals, and the glass bottle...
  8. Breaking All The Rules

    Breaking All The Rules A fun puzzle box to build. Made from Purpleheart, Curly Maple, Ebony, and a few others that I can't recall at the moment. A fun experiment in using a glued up top for a lid. YOur courage is tested as the only way to solve this puzzle is to remove and break the stick...
  9. Small Apothecary Chest

    Ultimately, I want to make a massive map chest or apothecary chest. Something legendary like you see in early 1900s country stores. I usually start with a miniature version, so I made this 12-drawer using a lot of scrap from other projects. My friend said, "what, did you run low on wood?"...
  10. Eagle Nest Chest

    The Eagle Nest Chest I have been adding a combination locking system to hope chests for some time now and one day a fella commented that he would like to see the dials hidden behind a false panel, that it too would be locked from access. How it works: The nest sitting on top of the chest...
  11. #27 little box with mechanism

    In this little box I did my "very" little attempt of veneering inlay (later, I put away of my attempts). The mechanism was also new, with a pivoting side that allows the lid to open with a little spring insert in the back of the lid. (buckle spring?). The main problem of this mechanism is that...
  12. Super Secret Shelf

    Hey Guys, I made this shelf a way long time ago for my brother who needed a little security around his home. You see, his girlfriends teenage son had been lifting an extra pack of smokes here and there. The space up under the lid is only noticeable once pointed out, otherwise, hanging it on...
  13. Bandsaw jewelry box with hidden drawer

    Hey everyone! Another project the list of items I published earlier that I wanted to do. I call this bandsaw jewelry box "porpoise" Now this is a unique box because the one challenge I wanted to do was create a "secret hidden drawer". Take a close to see where it might be. It's behind the...
  14. Tall Side Stand with Hidden Compartment

    This is my most recent creation. It's a bit of a mutt as far as woods go, I should have paid more attention instead of just using whatever I found (obviously). It's a very tall nightstand or side table. I think the height makes it humorous but it also helps access the hidden compartment. To...
  15. Oak Filing Cabinet w/ a Twist!

    This is one of my newer builds. It's an oak filing cabinet, but with a twist. The bottom drawer is set up for filing, but the top 'drawer' is actually a step stool. It's designed to help keep documents (obviously) but also to give a convenient home for a step stool so it's not always getting...
  16. Autumn Rush

    I certainly am grateful for that cool fall day long ago as a 16 year old when my Dad first showed me a bit of woodworking in our basement. He didn't hardly have much but a milk crate of tools and yet there was this pile of raw lumber that was somehow magically transfixed into a beautiful corner...
  17. Pinch an Inch - Puzzle Box

    I just can't resist the urge to utilize a couple of Yardsticks and turn them into an awesome little puzzle box! To allow for adhesion between parts the back side of the ruler has been planned to a clean and glueable surface. This one is the first in a series of 10 Yardstick designs. This is...
  18. Hidden/Secret Compartment in Wall Cabinet

    This cabinet is located in my 5'x5' bathroom. The cabinet is pretty boring on the outside. It's the surprise on the inside that most find cool. Inserting a shelf pin into the topmost rear hole runs a motor that raises a sliding panel. Insert the shelf pin into the next lowest pin position...
  19. Keepsake Box 2

    I made this box with my 11-year-old son. It was a great way to spend his Christmas vacation.
  20. Keepsake Box 3

    I made this one a little different. I made a dovetail "insert" from purpleheart to add some contrast.
