  2. I Joint Box, Take 2

    When I first posted the Knothead Box I didn't realize at the time, but it seemed to be a fairly unique joint and the comments were pretty positve, so I decided to try another one. I wanted to try this one without the legs to see how it looked. This one is mostly for practice to try and hone the...

  4. Thr33 + 2

    My wife received a message from the lady who ordered the Thr33 boxes and said she needed two more boxes quickly, if possible, before the wedding. I checked my wood stash and had just enough African Mahogany left over from the last batch to make two more, but had to dive into my cutoff bin for...

  8. Snowman Bandsaw Box

    Got my foot in the door for selling my projects at the local coffee shop so I thought something seasonal would be a good addition.

  12. USAF Retirement Shadow Box

    I got an order about a week or so ago from a friend of mine that is about the retire from the USAF as a Master Sergeant. It was an honor to be asked to build this for him considering he is out of state and still wished for me to build it and have it shipped to him. He didn't want anything too...

  16. El Tigre

    Here is a maple and red oak jewelry box I finished not to long ago. I'm not a huge fan of red oak because it seems like it's every where but i found this particular board to be very interesting. It reminded me of tiger striping, hence the name. The lid is maple burl veneer and the trim and...

  18. Decorative Box

    This was the first decorative box I made. It's oak and bloodwood with brass quadrant hinges and lined with suede. I donated this to a church auction. It ended up selling for about $250 I think. Everyone overpays because it's for charity. An older man wanted to use it for his coin collection.
  19. Small jewelry box

    Here is a little box out of lightly spalted maple and bloodwood. Green suede liner. Magnetic closure. In these photos the lid is being propped up…there is no lid stay. Partly for simplicity and partly because I ran out of build time and needed to get it done. I am the President of my fraternity...
