  1. Pen Swap Pens...

    Here's my contribution to the pens for the Official LumberJocks Pen Turner's Swap Round 2. Jr. Gentleman's in gold/Thuya Burl and a Slimline in silver/bubinga/maple. This swap has been so much fun… felt like I needed to do something nice to contribute. Hope that whoever down the line ends up...
  2. Heart Shaped Box

    This is a heart shape bandsaw box I made for my daughter for Valentine's Day. Lower layer is cherry, then maple, topped by walnut. This was my first attempt at doing any type of inlay, which I've always wanted to try. It went alright and I already see ways to improve my work! Overall though...
  3. *********************************** Spray Booth (Inexpensive)

    It is getting too cold to spray outside, so I decided to make a small spray booth. I wanted it to be cheap, able to be stored away, lite and have negative air flow. Walking around Lowe's, I came across this 27 gallon storage container for $9 (on sale, usually $12). It looked like the perfect...
  4. Paint Room Reno

    I had a forum topic a while ago about the best way to extract fumes from a spray booth. The first thing I tried was box fans mounted in the wall as seen in picture three to push air into the room and exhaust the fumes out the window… this did not work that well, I had the whole house smelling...
  5. Air Assault!

    Today I got out the new hand held router and went to town making this 10.5 in. Air Assault badge for my office here at Fort Hood. It was the first project I have tried routing that wasn't just regular old letters and numbers. If you have never tried something like this with the router then I...

  8. I Get Attached...

    Twenty plus years ago I made my sons each a wooden P-51 Mustang. I worked a long time getting them just right. I sanded and finished them with care. Aside from a rocking horse they were my first real projects. I gave them to the boys. My six year old made plane sounds as he ran around the...

  10. Crib

    This is a Crib that I built for my daughter. It is a convertible crib that converts to a toddler bed and then into a headboard for a full size bed. The lumber is Ambrosia Cherry, which is actually Ambrosia Maple that has been processed to give a pinkish color. It has a coat of Minwax Red...
  11. Mission Pendulum Clocks

    Here are a clutch of clocks that I have made, right down to designing the clock faces. The movements are quartz battery-driven pendulum types with a speaker and chimes. Wood is quarter-sawn oak "fat veneer" bookmatched over less figured QS white oak. Stain on the two clocks are various...
  12. Live edge Spalted Maple coffee table with turquoise and blue lapis inlays.

    When I got this Spalted Maple it had some rot spots so I used a router to cut them out and inlayed them with turquoise and blue lapis then finished it with several coats of rub on poly, I made the metal base to make a coffee table. It is 50" x 29" x 18" high.
  13. Glitter Strat

    This strat is a departure from my first two dyed, figured maple top guitars. I used the traditional alder and tried a gaudy glitter finish. I got automotive flake from "Paint With Pearl" and put it into the nitro lacquer. The pictures don't do it justice because it is like a million little...
  14. Supersized Andy's box

    Someone, who saw the box that I made about a year ago, asked me if I can make one that holds 20 watches. And I said O.K. This box is 13.5 in X 8.5 in X 5.5 in high. It was made with figured Maple and Walnut and it was lined with suede. Finished with Shellac as base coat and Deft Lacquer as top coat.
  15. Cherry and maple dresser

    This dresser is eventually going to be part of a bedroom set (matches the nightstand/end-table project I did prior to this), but for now it's home to our TV and kid's toys. I started of meaning well on this project, and completed the shell in about a month, however, because of school/work/life...
  16. Steel String

    I decided to try my hand at an acoustic. It turned out pretty well. California Laural, Alaskan Yellow Cedar top, mahogany bolt on neck, cocobolo fretboard, ebony bridge and headstock overlay, bone saddle and nut. Sounds good but volume could be better.

    I made 11 of these 2 panel iterior doors, the stiles, rails, jambs and casings for the doors and windows was all milled by me, the hickory was from my property that I air dried for 18 months, the panels are 1/2 hickory veneer plywood ,the finish I sprayed on with a catalized lacquer, that was...
  18. Ariculated truck

    Model made from TJ plan, use yellow heart wood for the body and ebonized oak for the wheels. A lot of détails on this one.
  19. Long Boards

    Let me start by saying, I do not skate board. I want to make sure I am not associated with skate boarders and as a disclaimer, I didn't know much about them. They are all re-sawn Oak plys. My brothers in law wanted to get into long boarding. I decided to tackle the challenge of making a pair...
  20. Country Hutch

    As a hobbyist trying to improve my woodworking skills I gave myself a homework assignment of making a hutch. I'd give myself a B, maybe a B+ for this one. There is hidden storage under the counter-top and under the bottom shelf (inside the cabinet). Wood is Douglas Fir. The green is stain; I...
