  1. Scupper Grate

    Back to boat work this week, new owner of a Westsail 32 needed scupper covers port & stbd. for side deck drains. Made a template for the port side and I'm here to tell you, in 44 years of custom shipbuilding this is the 1st time the other side of the boat was what we call equal and opposite...
  2. Underwater World

    Hello all, it's been awhile since I posted a project because of my broken hand and then playing catch up to get some projects done. This one took AWHILE to finish because it was 341 pieces and a lot of them where very small. I spent a lot of time down on my hands and knees looking for a piece...
  3. Gifts for a trip

    We're starting to plan a FL trip here soon so I wanted to get ahead of things and knock out some gifts for the different friends and family we're staying with.

  7. Find a Home for an Intarsia Carousel Horse Wall Hanging

    I really had some fun making this piece and it was a real challenge. I saw a picture on the internet and made a pattern based on that with Inkskape. It ended up having 190 different pieces with 13 different kinds of woods. The pole was a real challenge to make out of a block of yellow heart...
  8. Creepy teak bowl...

    I've done a couple small bowls with two legs or handles and wanted to try one with four legs. Think it turned out pretty good…tried to make the legs spider or claw like. Not sure how everyone feels about camera effects on here, but I thought they added to the looks.
  9. Bench top down draft table

    I built this bench top down draft table for sanding finish work it has a port for my shop vac hose and a waste gate to hook up the palm sander on a small hose ,the peg board works real good to suck all the fine dust into my dust cyclone that I built from a street cone. I can sand with or...
  10. Electro Static Machine

    This is a fun project I did a few years ago, Its supposed to generate static electricity when you turn the handle, collecting it on the solid brass contacts, then discharging at the end of the rod….....totally does not work, but a really fun build.
  11. My first posting - Spoons made from my Fathers Day gift

    This is my first posting to LJ. I've been a lurker for about a year or so. I love looking at all of the projects that are posted. I'm envious of you! Alas…... I do not have the DNA that enables me to actually comprehend "woodworking", so I relegated to carving decoys and spoons. The first pics...
  12. Aircraft Carrier Coin Display in Teak

    Well, my customer was adamant that they wanted their 40" x 10" Aircraft Carrier coin display made of Teak. $160 for the wood alone. Fortunately I had a long lead time so I could go really slow and make sure I didn't make any costly errors. He is picking it up tomorrow!
  13. Fusion Razor from Teak

    This is the first razor I've done. I'm happy with way it turned out. Made from Teak scraps given to me by a coworker. Finished with BLO and CA glue.
  14. 1945 Dunlop Bench Saw With Mahogony/Cherry Base

    My grandfathers old saw i dug out of the basement and reconditioned. Its origional base was a few old stair spindles for legs and a thin piece of ply, not much to it. I made a mortise and tenon cherry base with a mahogany top. Finished with boiled linseed oil. Also made a shroud for the belt...
  15. Ships wheel coffee table

    I bought this solid brass ship's wheel in Wakkanai Japan in 1970 from a scrap dealer for about $10.00. I have been moving it all around with me for the last 39 years. Finally, I decided to make it into a usable piece of furniture. The crossed feet are some kind of mahogany from wooden boat plank...

  17. Rhodesian Teak Sleeper Wood Coffee Table

    The top is a refurbished bar top and the legs are Rhodesian teak railroad ties. I sandblasted the entire table after assembling to bring out the character of the wood and accent the natural checking. It's stained dark (Imbuia) to blend the differences in wood coloring between the legs and top...
  18. Sanding block

    The idea was to come up with a sanding block design which was tool less and easy to change between grits. I think I accomplished that but it ended up being slightly over complicated for a sanding block;)
  19. Intarsia Tiger on the Prowl.

    This is a new project that I made for this contest and I hope this shows some fluidity in nature. While making this, I tried to capture a majestic animal stalking it's prey through a forest. As you can tell, I really like to use all kinds of animals for my art. The tiger is made out of red...
