  1. Nautical Style Submarine Door

    This is a submarine door all made from recycled lumber. It is grafted into a standard door which is the door to my office at work. I made this all at home in my shop and installed it into my existing office door at work on the weekend. It has been up for almost a year and people still stop to...
  2. Steampunk/Industrial pipe shelves

    Saw a photo of a pipe and wood shelf on instructables, so I decided to make on. Each section is 4'x5' and is built using 1/2" pipe and red oak boards. Added some gauges, copper, and other things to spice it up and to use as bookends. Not done yet, but it's good for now.
  3. Steampunk Cradle

    When my wife and I found out we were having another baby, I wanted to make a cradle that could be handed down through the generations. After reading an article on the web about the steampunk subculture, I decided to use a few elements from it to make it unique. What started out as a few minor...
  4. Contemporary Reclaimed Barn Wood Sliding Door

    Here's a recent build I did using different barn woods from our lot. The customer picked out all of the different pieces at the lot and then I ripped them, jointed the back side, and brad-nailed/adhered them to the birch plywood. when it was fully assembled, our finish guy did a great lacquer...
  5. iPad Pulpit

    Here's an interesting project. This is a pulpit (podium) for iPad. It's made of reclaimed American Chestnut barn wood, steel, aluminum, and calf skin leather. The chestnut came from a barn we call our "Chestnut Barn" that we tore down in Pennsylvania. The patina on the surface was so nice and...
  6. Steampunk Master Control (sculpture)

    Created to complement the new decor of the teen section at our local library, this piece is designed to trigger youthful imagination. Cabinet is mahogany and the embellishments are all found, old, or obscure excepting the knife switches which were sourced on ebay. Apx 62×25 x 15 inches. Three...
  7. Steampunk weaponry I

    This sculpture was created to explore the possibilities of imaginary personal artillery in a fantasy world which is not science fiction, quite. The piece is titled Thrombolean Dysambulator which, to the astute etymologist, would indicate that, once hit, the victim would experience cardiac...
  8. Steampunk weaponry II

    Personal protection in a Steampunk environment would best include the Stygmisticator. Although this personal armament is slightly asymmetrical, significant alterations of molecular structure-though not readily identified as such-could be accomplished with this device in the hands of the adroit...
  9. Stepstool

    My stepstool was made out of cherry in the shop class. The finish that I used on it was tung oil.
  10. Steampunk Desk Lamp

    Here's a video as well: OK, so it's one part wood turning and one part crafting and not to everyone's taste but I really dig the outcome. I bought some cool Edison style light bulbs a while back and just thought I needed to try this industrial thing. My office is very modern and it work for...
  11. Wimshurst #7

    This is the seventh Wimshurst Machine I have made. This one was commissioned machine for good friend in Australia… (shipping was crazy high from the USA!) The machine is made of White Oak and I used an Ammonia Fuming Process to darken the oak. This worked exceptionally well! Here's a video I...
  12. Steampunk Edison Lamp

    This was my second project ever! I think it turned out great and I love it. The dimmer switch works great and is crucial for a lamp with a bare bulb. -Valve Activated Dimmer Switch -Red Oak Made with: Skill saw Power drill What I learned. 1. Buy ALL components before beginning the build 2...
  13. Steampunk Joiner’s Mallet

    OK, I'm bad,not made of wood. ... but, a woodworking tool nonetheless. I just bought some very nice Japanese dovetail chisels to do some fine work with and my big mallet seemed overkill for the job. At home in Canada I have a lovely brass joiner's mallet from Lee Valley but I'm not at home so I...
  14. Rustic Pottery Shelves

    Built some pottery drying shelves for my wife. Made out of 5/4 barn boards with a galvanized pipe frame. Got inspired by a shelf in a local art store in Eau Claire, WI. Sorry about the sideways photos, that's the way they upload.
  15. Purpleheart mantel clock

    This is my pride and joy. Solid purpleheart mantel clock in a steampunk design. It is heavy for its size. The face is intentionally open to show the brass mechanical movement and to see the chimes and hammer moving if you look from the sides if you want. Hand turned spindles for the front...
  16. Steampunk Fish

    Size is 21"x 6"x 11". A test to try a new way to glue my parts and to bend plastic. Seems to be able to hold it's own weight.

    I wanted to make a 'Steampunk' digital clock. I used mahogany, brass, and rice paper to achieve this look. I custom made the numeric segments out of plexiglass and LEDs. Detailed directions are on my LJ Blog.
  20. Steampunk Game Shelves

    These shelves are the first step in the steampunk remodel of our library. I'm planning on adding two Edison lights-one that will hang down from the exposed pipe on the left bottom shelf, and one that will stick up from the top left exposed pipe. The boards are pine 2×12s and the pipe is 3/4...
