  1. F-14 tomcat challenge coin display

    Just finished this 33" tomcat silhouette for a coworker. It's made from maple, walnut, and sepele. Took about 8 hours to complete. For the finish I used 4 coats of dewaxed super blonde shellac, then buffed with 0000 steel wool and paste wax. I just used a 1/4 keyhole bit for the back so it can...
  2. Six Watch Box - Walnut, Maple & Sapele

    I've always enjoyed seeing the many beautiful boxes produced by LJ members and thought I'd try my hand at making one. Having a need for a watch box was the perfect reason. Being a small project from a materials standpoint, I had enough on hand to proceed without having to visit the lumber...
  3. First Veneer, Check out this Grain!

    This is a guitar pedal board that I made for a friend, he plays in the church band and needed a new one. I would call this my first real fine woodworking project. I learned lots of lessons from this but all things considered it turned out ok. The main wood is quilted sapele veneer, (thanks to...
  4. Thorsen House Greene and Greene inspired chair

    My first chair. Attended a week long class at William Ng's School of Fine Woodworking. He had all the special jigs and tools necessary to craft this thing. Plus he is a top notch woodworker and teacher. Class of six and we all went home with a bag of pieces of Sepele with a lots more work to...

  7. Joining the LVDT Club

    After years of woodworking and viewing hundreds of other LJ's cutting boards on this site, I finally jumped into the LVDT club with a pair of boards. The boards were a good way to use up some pieces of scrap I've been hanging onto for quite some time now. I find it extremely hard to throw out...
  8. A couple of intarsia ornaments

    Just because in didn't have enough frustration in my life, i decided to try intarsia. I did a couple of Kathy Wise patterns. The bell has maple, sepele and walnut. The stocking has maple, sepele,and poplar.
  9. Scarecrow intarsia

    A couple more intarsia projects. I made the penguin after I made the other two ornaments, each was slightly more difficult than the last. It is about 4 inches tall and uses maple, walnut, sepele and poplar. The scarecrow is about 15 inches tall and uses maple, walnut, hickory, poplar, sepele and...
  10. Aromatic Cedar Vase

    Vase is made of aromatic cedar. All of the cedar is from a single board. All of the color changes are natural. The base and decorative layer are sepele and maple. This is my first floating bottom vase. I like how it turned out.

  12. Inspired

    I want to thank Matt Kenney (@mekwoodworks) for his work on the book "52 Boxes in 52 Weeks". This piece was wholly influenced by his design, but it is not a direct copy of any one of his boxes. Cherry sides, Sepele lid, Ebony handle, and plywood bottom. All parts are 1/4" thick. 7" long, 3.5"...
  13. Sepele Bookcase

    Finished the case. Sepele with Wenge and Padauk inlay. Case is dovetailed, stiffeners are doweled in with Walnut dowels. Base is Walnut. Ended up square and stiff. I had not planned a for a back and it would probably have been fine without it. The glue up was a pain as the joints were a...

    Side chest with 3 maple drawers. Chest is made of sepele, walnut and maple. The sepele top is inlaid with a simple maple design. Only the legs are fixed with screws. The whole cabinet can be disassembled into several parts which are joined together mortise and tendon joints. These are strong...
  15. Don't throw away that cutoff with the ugly knot

    I had this cut-off from a board of maple that had an ugly knot that didn't go all the way through the board. The other side had a lot of character so I decided to make an Andy style art box and use it. The plan was to mount the medallion with the knot down and be careful not to sand down to...
  16. Cutting Board Season!

    This is my second commissioned project, and was obviously a much bigger project! It is funny how it grew and grew. I made one for my wife who showed it of a few months ago and a neighbor showed up with an order for 10. She was so happy with the results on delivery she ordered one more! Along...

  18. Sepele End Table

    My wife asked for some new end tables so this is what I came up with. Mission inspired sepele end table. I picked threw the material and found a nice piece of flat sawn sepele that I used for the top. The bottom shelf was book matched from a piece containing sapwood in order to give it the hour...
  19. Crokinole Board "XX" - part 1

    I am one of those nerdy board gamers. I saw Tom Vasel (see dice tower videos on youtube) do a review of the Crokinole Board that Mayday Games is now producing. First, I had never even heard of Crokinole before I saw the review. Second, the Mayday board only got mediocre reviews. Third, after...
  20. Crokinole Board "XX" - part 2. The disc box

    See my previous post for the board description. This is just a continuation to show the matching disc box and a game in progress. I did not make the discs. The discs from workshop supply are inexpensive and very high quality with the as decribed concave / convex faces that some believe are...
