  1. Projects cutting board with tray

    Made a cutting board for my 92 year young mother who loves to cook. In order for her to use both sides of the cutting board I made a support tray in which she can cut veggies then flip the cutting board over and use the other side of the cutting board for meat. The tray keeps the cutting board...
  2. 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. 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...
  5. 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.
  6. Keepsake box with first attempt at epoxy inlay

    I made this for a friend at work. Top is Peruvian walnut as are the splines, the box is maple. I made an attempt at her initials with a dremel tool and router base and them made a feeble attempt at an expoxy inlay with pink sand aggregate…a few air pockets, that gave me fits and still show but I...
  7. Tile Display

    This frame was an anniversary gift to my son Ben and his wife Jenna. I was looking for a project to try out some of the joinery and details often seen in early Arts and Crafts pieces, especially from the Greene and Greene brothers. These "tiles" are actually color prints of tiles that I found...
  8. Seahorse Box

    I recently moved from Ohio to South Carolina and my dear friends wife was looking for a recipe box. They moved here two years ago and asked me if I still did woodworking. I said "if I can borrow your garage to work in I will make you one". Well here is the finished product. It's oak to match...

  14. my first jewelry box

    This is not only my first jewelry box, but it was also my first woodworking project. It has sentimental value to me on so many levels. My grand-father was an all-American hero. He raised five children, cattle, and corn on 500 hundred acres just west of Des Moines, Iowa; he fought in the...

  16. Walnut and Maple Whatever Box

    11.5"x5.5"x2.75" I may still add a lift, but undecided. I think it get's away with not having one nicely. The chamfer around the edge is more than enough to comfortably open the box. Sanded to 220, buffed with red rouge, BLO then Ren wax.
  17. First Box in the New Shop

    This is my first box project in the new shop. It is made from maple with simple miter joints and walnut splines. The top is beveled padauk. I was pleased to see that I could cut nearly perfect miters on the Proxxon table saw. It had no problem cutting crisp lines on 1/2" stock. Now that the...
