  1. Soft Maple Bookshelf

    Heres another project I finished, made this for my girlfriend this last Christmas. Started Christmas eve, and finished the build that night, she was surprised to say the least. The finish took a few days to complete. Used the Maloof oil/wax three coats, then briwax two coats. Actually a lot...
  2. Shop dustpan

    I've been needing a dust pan for my shop for a while. I have a cheap one, but in order to sweep up, I end up having to bend down, and with my bad back, that's no fun. So when I saw the one in Popular Woodworking by The Schwarz, I added that to my to-do list. I cut a couple pieces of elm for the...
  3. Moxon Vise

    I completed this build in August of 2018. I bought the Benchcrafted hardware for this moxon vise around the same time I bought the leg vise hardware (2yrs ago). At the time I bought the wood and began working on the chops. Fast forward 2yrs, the chops were still sitting under my assembly...
  4. Segmentation Tiger - Framed

    This is a present for my son's high school soccer coach. It is a segmentation of of tiger which is the school mascot. The tiger is 3/4" soft maple, the grass is western red cedar, and the frame is red oak. The piece is approximately 22.5" x 14.5". Thanks to Neal Moore for the tiger pattern from...
  5. Stone Inlay Waterfall

    This was probably the most complicated routering I've ever done for an inlay. When I finished the design I knew is was going to be tricky - but by the time I was 9 hours in and working with the smallest end mills I have I knew I was definitely pushing it. I tried to capture the movement of the...
  6. Beetle Kill Pine Slab Coffee Table

    This table was fun to make, but weighs quite a bit. The top is 3" thick Beetle Kill with bark on both edges.
  7. Intarsia Duck

    This Intarsia Duck was a joint venture (My sweet lady, and myself worked together on this one), and it was the first go at the intarsia craft for both of us. Here are pictures of it before and after finishing (It is still wet in the picture, it is actually a satin finish). We made this last...
  8. Project 2: “knock-down” bed (no metal hardware)

    Twin Bed (2014) I still look at this project and smile!! There are no screws or hardware holding this together. Just using mechanical joinery (sliding-half-wedged-dovetail? Haha). With a few taps of a hammer this can be broken down or set up in minutes. More importantly it doesn't rock/rack or...
  9. Glue roller

    Because I edge glue a lot of material I decided I need something better for glue application. I started with a small bread pan I absconded from my wife that is a Baker. I then turned a piece of maple the width of the pan less shims for bringing the sides parallel. The drum needs to be turned to...
  10. Turnscrew set and box

    This is a set of turnscrews I made, based off London Pattern Turnscrews from an old Marples catalog. Then I tweaked them to match turnscrews sold by Swan early in the 20th Century. They are sized to fit wood screws of even sizes from 2-8. I cut the blades from O-1 tool steel, filed the tips to...
  11. Kitchen Shelves Set

    Made out of Soft Maple and I used the knots as decorative element. I had many design cycles till the client (my dear wife) was satisfied. So far so good, I finished it as a present for our wedding day, and the client is very happy with the outcome. Each unit is 100 cm long (about 40"), total...
  12. Step-stool

    My wife needed a small step-stool and preferred a custom built one:-). An enjoyable weekend project, made out of Soft Maple and finished with IKEA wood treatment oil (a mix of tung and linseed oil).
  13. Kitchen Cabinet Retrofit

    These 2 cabinets had the typical bottom shelf and a half shelf above that. That arrangement is inconvenient, especially when trying to retrieve heavy items from the back of the bottom shelf. These new shelves are full extension trays and will be much more user friendly. One fits a 27" wide...
  14. Short Legs for Little Legs

    My son has a little project table in the playroom for his two little boys for puzzles and coloring etc. It is clearly a kids table, the legs are 24" long, but the "grands" are still tiny! that table is more like a stand-up desk for them now… I thought about sawing off the legs, but I know they...
  15. Redwood, soft maple and elm box # 6

    My fourth post in a series of nine box art projects using reclaimed redwood. Each posting features a unique box in the main pictures and a narrative focused on a different step in the process. Sometimes including photos from parts of other projects in the series; click on "my next or previous...
  16. Trash Can for 13 gallon bag

    This is a scaled down version of the one I made previously. It is designed for 13 gallon bags. The base is 1/2" Birch Ply and the top is soft maple. The finish is GF Gel Stain (American Oak) with GF Gel Topcoat (Satin). I don't know why the pics are sideways.

    this is a simple box i made for my mothers birthday this year…i made it with soft maple and walnut, with cedar accents and the handles are made of dogwood…ive found that dogwood is a beautiful white and very dense hardwood..ive got some here and milled it on my table saw, i sealed the wood with...

    this small jewelry box was made for a women missionary, she has been here in our area for some time now , but is getting ready to go home next week, so i wanted to make her a small gift to remember us by and i just wanted to make her something, so here it is…I made this box from several...
  19. A set of Night Stands

    I finished these Night Stands a while back, and decided to start a new Bedroom Suite based on them. The night stand is built with Black Walnut with secondary wood being soft maple. I used half blind dovetails for the drawers made with my Leigh Super Jig. My Next Piece will be through dovetails...
