  1. Small Coffee Table with semi-concealed draw

    I promised my 23 year old Son and his Partner this as a Christmas/Birthday present and will be delivering it today. It is figured Tasmanian Blackwood with Mackay Cedar legs. Mackay cedar is beautiful but deadly. I was warned but still suffered my first ever Asthma attack when first sanding the...
  2. Took a while....

    I had the drunken weave done, for it seems like for ever… last week I decided to finish it… added a ring border.. for the Hands On Expo in Brisbane on the week end…. I had a piece of one hundred year old Silky Oak… Lace Wood… Grevillea Robusta… ok Drilled a hole in the centre and fitted it to...
  3. Just a quick one...

    I have been busy with a lot of things recently so have not been posting here much… still drop in and have a look but….. This is a Lazy Larry that I made for my wife as an anniversary gift….26 years of marriage… Timbers used… purple heart, silver ash, tasmanian myrtle and tasmanian blackwood as a...
  4. Chip and Dip Lazy Larry..

    Been thinking on this for quite a while.. Finally got to it…A Lazy Larry with a lip around the edge. European Wild Cherry with Tasmanian Blackwood accents. . I was going to and still will… make the dipping boards made popular by closetguy . A mate threw up some pottery bowls.. Had not used them...
  5. Next Step.

    Well the Next Step in the Cheese Board Saga had to be a step.. logical once you think about it.. This board is made up of laminations of Camphor Laurel, Purple Heart and Tasmanian Blackwood. I then used the Incra Mitre Express to cut three pieces from the centre of the board at 30 degrees and...
  6. Tasmanian Blackwood Pepper Mill

    Yet another wedding present pepper mill…when am I going to get around to making one of these for myself? I took the time to power-sand through ALL the grits, reversing the lathe every other time so the finish on this is great and it feels wonderful in the hand. Details Size: 2.5" dia. x 10"...
  7. Offset Baguette.

    This baguette board was made from Camphor Laurel, Purple Heart and Tasmanian Black wood.. I made extra strips for the" "Next Step"":http://lumberjocks.com/projects/30203 project so not to waste them I laminated them and then cut through the board at 30 degrees 8 times [there by giving me 7...
  8. Panel gauge

    Based on the guide at https://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/wood-and-brass-panel-gauge I enjoyed working with brass to make this project. I believe the body is beech (it was from the scrap bin of the furniture makers' up the road :-p). Beam is 24" of Tasmanian blackwood. Blade is...
  9. A Game Of Darts...

    Here is the finished project that started with a pair of doors… The frames are Narra… [New Guinea Rosewood] with Queensland Maple for the panels and carcass… the wooden hinges are made from Tasmanian Blackwood. The unit will be mounted to the wall using a french cleat…
  10. Mandolin

    This is my first mandolin - it took me three months in my spare time and I finished it last night - I was amazed at how good it sounds. The neck is Queensland maple, the back is padouk, the sides Tasmanian blackwood and the top is birdseye maple. I used traditional lutherie techniques and...
  11. King Bed Tasmanian blackwood legs and Blackheart Sassafras rails

    I got inspiration for the bed from a bedside table I saw about 3 years back using the same combo of timbers from Tasmania(www.lumberjocks.com/projects/16106). Its hard to get Blackheart Sassafras in Sydney so I ended up tracking down a guy from tassie named Steve who packed me what he had and...
  12. Rimmed Tasmanian Blackwood bowl

    This was a fun one. I picked up the blank in Saratoga Springs at the North East Woodworker's Association show a little while ago. The hole in the side was a bark inclusion that was completely surrounded and revealed itself while turning and I have since decided to not fill it with anything...
  13. Negative Mirror Image

    Just playing around with designs. I cut some Tasmanian Blackwood and some Silver Ash with a 70 and 80 degree bevel and glued them up alternatively from the centre and then cut and rolled to make a butcher block endgrain board. Mirrored but with a negative image! Nice for a small cheese board or...
  14. Tasmanian Blackwood Dining Table

    We had a very long and quite narrow passageway where the dining table was so I decided to make a dining table to match the Blackwood we are using in the main bedroom. The table is 2.4m x 900w x 880h which we could have 10 seats but 8 is cosy. Legs are 70×70 which isn't in with the market trend...
  15. Twice the fun!

    Made two at the same time. I actually made too much blank and if I had glued it up as one board would have been unbelievably large. These are primarily for cutting bread,or serving.. bread boards not chopping boards, as they are all long grain., Silver Ash and Tasmaninan Blackwood as always, no...
  16. Bandsaw Box Quartet

    Here are a Quartet of bandsaw boxes… designed by Lois Ventura… Minnow… from memory… 3 in Tasmanian Blackwood and one in New Guinea Rosewood… the flocking is royal blue… All ordered from one person.. with another Lazy Larry.[She has ordered quite a lot from me].The small [ stubbie…13 oz] bottle...
  17. Wide Open Weave... as a platter...

    I know I have not posted a project for a while… this has been in the half finished basket since before the last woodshow…. This is a slightly different weave… more open… background is Hoop Pine… araucaria cunninghamii…. and the weave is Tasmanian Blackwood with Hoop Pine and Tasmanian Blackwood...
  18. Back to my roots...

    Just a silly reference to where it all started.. cutting boards… and yes they are addictive … as is this site… This is fairly simple design using Silver Ash and Tasmanian Blackwood… Cut the ends on a bandsaw using a curve cutting jig on the circle cutting jig… Rounded over all edges with a 1/2...
  19. Inlay Cube Box - Tunbridge ware style inlay

    This little box took me a couple of weeks to complete - working a couple of hours a day. The main timbers are Tasmanian Blackwood and Solomon Is Ebony and some dark eucalyptus decking wood. The small checkered patterns are endgrain put together in the Tunbridge ware manner and the inlays are...
  20. Cocobolo and Maple Coffee Table

    Cocobolo and Maple Coffee Table 35.5" wide x 18.5" deep x 18" high I stopped at Hearne Hardwoods one day and found a piece of Big Leaf Maple that was a piece of wood, albeit a bit expensive, just looking for a project. It was only about 24" long, 8"wide and a little over an inch thick. My...
