  1. Let's eat!

    I love cooking as much as I enjoy eating. I made these kabob skewers yesterday, and got to try them out today. I'm not psychic, but I predict more of these in my future. I remember seeing people in Thailand cooking chicken satay skewed on 3 sticks, and got to thinking. This is what I've come up...
  2. Locking (liquor) jelly cabinet

    I rent my summer cabin 4 weeks a yr, so I wanted a way to not box up the liquor & drag it to basement every year. My table is oak & I had 750' of pretty Peruvian walnut flooring strips I paid for but never used. So I found a plan for jelly cabinet & modified it. I wanted the door to fit in a...
  3. Chessboard

    I did this project in my advanced wood shop class in highschool. It has individual compartments for each piece in the drawer. It also has a laser engraved owl on the drawer side that slides out. It was hard work for only my 4th project but i love it :]
  4. Mesquite Mushrooms

    These are a few mushrooms I made from a mesquite branch . I wanted to try a natural edge so I needed a small dia. branch and I wanted to try out my new undercut tool to cut the underside. The last pic is of the refrigerator magnet mushroom. I did all the finishing off the lathe and found that...
  5. Aftermarket blade guard for my tablesaw

    I bought this old saw used and refurbished it. Had no guard, and I can't even figure out a model number or find any spare parts. So the over-arm seems like the only solution. For a light-duty user like me, this unit from PSI seems pretty nifty. It adjusts every direction you can think of, and...
  6. Coffee Table

    I used to work for a carpentry company, and we were helping with constructing a mansion. The customer had requested these giant rafter tails made from cedar, and there were so many discarded pieces that were going to be thrown away, I just couldn't let them go to waste. I took as many as I could...
  7. Cyclone Seperator

    I do not remember where this plan came from but it works very well Excuse the oversized lid on top I had a bigger plastic can but when I upgraded my collector the can split [ UPDATE ] ** I have now converted over to the Thien design
  8. Cruz Towing

    The youngest great-grandson has been playing with my 19 year old tow truck. He wanted me to make him one. I had to make 2 one for his older brother also. So here is the Cruz towing Company fleet. Made from shop scraps in a variety of woods-many unknown for species. The bumpers & hooks are oak...
  9. Cypress coffee table

    I acquired this piece of cypress after someone's botched attempt to coat it with a plactic finish. I first coated it with a variety of copper, bronze, and brass emulsions in a kind of random pattern that I then treated chemically to make the patina. After drying and washing I finished it with...
  10. Salad bowl set

    This lumber was milled by Mr. Charles Chavez Jr. Of Tool, AZ. a member of Lumberjocks. It is an unknown species of aromatic sappy conifer and eucalyptus as a trim ring. The Bowl is 15" dia. and 7" high with 4 small serving bowls about 6" x 4". Mr Chavez commissioned me to design and produce...
  11. Scroll Saw cut Sign

    As I managed to quit smoking last year, I decided that I should "reward" myself by buying a Scroll Saw. I'm a COMPLETE NEWBIE to Scroll Sawing, so I designed and made this little sign as a "practice piece". I'm quite pleased with how it came out. Keith.
  12. Lamp #3

    Hi everyone, Made this lamp from ricepaper, leftover pieces of walnut and oak. I initially made it as a birthday gift, but i like it too much to give away :). The Idea was to incoporate his company logo in the lamp on all sides, so it shines trough. I will have to make another one . It's again...
  13. Stand for Chinese Tile

    One of my client's found this old Chinese tile at a flea market, and asked me to build a display stand for it. My goal to make something that would feel stylistically appropriate without detracting from the real show-piece which was the tile. I used some nice straight grained Sapele with a...
  14. My Kitchen for my Gratful new wife!

    Made this kitchen for the wife and myself, the old cabinets were from the 60's when the house was built. First thing we wanted to do was replace the cabinets when we bought the house.. It is made from Elm. I designed all the cabinets and kitchen with my CAD program. All my project and the...

    Still obsessed by clocks:)) This time my first segmented turning project. I love segmented turning, possibilities are endless! Wood used: walnut, padauk, maple; sanded and buffed this far.. Curious if it needs some poly or lacquer finishing.. What do you think guys?
  16. Serving Trays

    Here are some serving trays that I just finished. They are made the same way as my cutting boards except that I used softer wood that would not handle cutting that well. (these are made from Cedar And Spruce from the local Big Box store.) I also used a finish that would show off these beauty of...
  17. Two Vases and a Candy Box

    First vase was made from discarded bamboo flooring, with mahogany splines and trim. Insert was a bud vase that my wife found at a thrift shop. Second vase surrounds a square jelly jar. It is red maple, with honey locust splines and trim. The candy box is made for an Australian friend who...
  18. Semper Fi Box

    A great friend was retiring out of the U. S. Marine Corps with 22 years and I wanted to do something special for him. The box is made of purple heart, padauk, and spalted maple. Inside is the true treasure, an Iwo Jima Silver Dollar. I was thinking that I could have went with a traditional...
  19. Praying for quiet.

    When I carved this piece, my 'studio' was a kitchen table situated not more than 10 feet from a large pool table, around which sat three young men (two of them my sons) who were starting up their software company. They had the pool table covered with computers and printers and cables and they...
