  1. Inlay puzzle coasters

    This project has been sitting on a shelf, half finished, for some time. I finally got a breather from projects I had to do and decided to finish these up since during the last year I've been asked if we have any more coasters. These were actually made as an experiment in inlaying splines in wood...
  2. Another cutting board

    Another cutting board, but this time for my brother's birthday. Made from walnut and maple with a salad bowl finish. And yet another shameless plug for my cutting board program. :) http://lumberjocks.com/projects/11372
  3. Spalted Molly

    I carved this lady in a piece of Spalted Maple. As many of you may know, a piece of wood becomes "spalted' due to the introduction and decomposition of the wood from fungus. The different types of fungus give the wood its' various colors. No artist will ever be a match for the beauty that Mother...
  4. Maple, ebony, & brushed stainless steel table

    I made and designed this piece for some good friends of mine that just finished building a modern 6 story home looking over Seattle's lake Union. I chose to use maple as the primary wood in order to match the maple butcher block counter tops in their kitchen and ebonized maple legs & arched...
  5. Plant Stand -- Curly Maple and Quilted Maple

    I made 5 plant stands for Christmas gits in 2005. The plan is from Barry Black in the April 2005 issue of Popular Woodworking. This was one of the more challenging projects I have done, but very rewarding. Two of the stands have a cherry base and curly maple top and shelf. Two of the stand...
  6. Anejo Humidor

    Curly Maple, Bubgina edging and key splines The bottom key spline is deliberately unevenly spaced from the other two to give the case a feeling of vertical action and a somewhat lighter feel. The name "Anejo Humidor" denotes that this particular humidor (one of several I have made, including a...
  7. Simple straight edge cutting sled jig

    If you don't have enough large handscrews, you may want to make a couple deep reach clamps (shown in the last pic) first as the building of this jig requires the use of four or more deep reach clamps.
  8. Another Box for Dad

    I made another box for dad. This one is out of maple, with cherry for the splines and red oak plywood for the top and bottom. Keeping with my idea of trying something new with each project, I had a few firsts this time. First time using my dado stack. I have the Dewalt 8" set, which is great...
  9. Andy-Style Box #3

    I made this Andy-style box for my boss' retirement next month. It's made of figured ash from the local saw mill, recycled padauk (from an old table off craigslist) for the medallion/handle, and bloodwood for the splines (not sure why I used both padauk and bloodwood here, as they look nearly...
  10. Miter Key Sled

    I am working on a mitered box project that I thought would look great with some paduak miter keys. The problem is that I had never done these keys before, I have never made my own jig/sled before. I and had some scrap wood lying around. The sled portion of this is red oak. The part that slides...
  11. Frame-and-Panel Toybox with Splined Miters

    I started building this toybox for my son months ago. I missed the deadline (his 3rd birthday) by a couple days. Other than the hinge and anticipated lid supports, there are no screws or nails in this box. The box is lightweight but rugged enough that the owner can sit on top or inside...
  12. Spalted Pecan Keepsake Box

    This is a keepsake box made of spalted pecan with spalted maple splines. The walls on this box are right at 3/8" which really lends itself to the display quality of the box, from the top of the box disappears and the contents take center stage. The wood has enough character to take center stage...
  13. Walnut and Cherry Picture frame

    Walnut and Cherry picture frame I made for a wedding present. I glued 1/4" walnut on top of cherry. Then used a router bit to make half circle "humps" of walnut. I also routed a profile on the inside edge of the walnut to make a shadow line around the picture. And then splined the corners for...
  14. Going away boxes

    Built these two boxes as going away gifts for my Command Sergeant Major and Battalion Commander. The boxes are constructed with Paduak, Zebrawood, and Hickory. Designs on top were added with a Colwood Burner by hand and the finish is 3 coats laquer and 4 coats johnsons paste wax. I love the...
  15. Walnut flag case

    Walnut flag case for a family member with purpleheart splines and a cedar ply back
  16. "Protector" another box

    This box was done for a Christmas gift last year, ( I haven't posted in awhile lol so there will be a flood today) The box is Maple and black walnut. I used miters and maple splines to join and the top actually has a angle which you cant see in the photos very well. The picture was done using...
  17. Cherry/Walnut Floating Top Hall Table

    Thanks for looking! The build of this table was partially inspired from a similar table by Mike Pekovich (FWW #263 sep/oct 2017). I always look forward to his write-ups since he makes stuff I like 8^). Other style influences came from several sources, anyway it was a fun build! The dimensions...
  18. MMMM Puzzle

    Too hot to work on big projects so I puttered around and came up with this. Found the idea in a book and copied it down into my little notebook of "neat things to make". The four puzzle pieces are too wide and too tall to fit completely inside the box unless you arrange them just right. The...
  19. "Mail Call"

    "Mail Call" is the most recent box designed around the actual mailbox door the client used to open as a kid. The door dates from 1958. To make the body of the box I used black walnut wainscoting scraps from a savings and loan building the client used to work at. She gave me a small box of them...
  20. A Giant Japanese Planing Board

    If you prefer not to read, the video is here. View on YouTube Not too long ago I made myself a small planing board. It was good but I have since outgrown it and I needed something bigger and wider to work with larger panels and larger projects. So for this I decided to try something I hadn't...
