  1. Headphone box

    Made this box to store my headphones in. Made out of hard maple and black walnut. This was the first time I used box joints and they turned out fairly well.

  2. New shop clock

    This is my new shop clock. It replaced a small and annoyingly loud plastic one. Not knocking the "go to" standard shop clock (the ten inch saw blade clock) I settled on this idea. The piece is larger than it may appear in the picture. In fact that's why I placed a 10" blade was to help provide...
  3. Recent Turnings

    Just practicing my technique on my lathe. I plan on starting a natural edge "green" bowl later this winter (about 14" diameter). Natural edge pieces can be rather intimidating and the fact that the wood contorts as you turn it makes for a real adventure ;). The turned flowers are from a maple...
  4. Kegerator collar - 4 faucets

    Homebrewing has been another hobby of mine for a few years now. Anyone who has bottled homebrew before knows what a chore it is to sanitize bottles, measure priming sugar, fill, cap and clean a 5 gallon batch of beer. A year ago I decided to step up to kegging my beer and since getting into...
  5. Floating Record Player or turntable Mounts/Platforms in DJ format

    Just another-"Necessity is the mother of…."-thing. My studio/apartment in NYC is low on space so I figured my Technics would get more use if they were floating on the wall, rather, than if in storage. Stand- by for my twist on the Murphy Bed. The surfaces are ply. Structure is mild steel...

  9. Not as Easy as it Looks, Here's what I Learned

    Nothing to spectacular, just a little 9"x12" cutting board made of hard maple with strips of black walnut and quilted maple running through a cut line. Everyone said it was trickier than it looks and I'd have to agree. Here's what I learned: 1. Create your thin strip ripping jig first and cut...
  10. Electric guitar ES style semi hollow

    Hi guys, this is my latest finished project, a flat top semi hollow body ES335 style electric guitar, and this is the first guitar I make from scratch. It took me several months to study/learn the needed skills and almost two months to finish it and I'm so pleased with the final result! :D Body...
  11. Simple Joint Box + Box Joint Jig

    Yesterday I finished my first Jig, ( Box Joint Jig) (see attached pictures) still need a couple of minor tune ups that I didn't realized untill I started cutting the joint fingers of my first box ever. I did use some scrap of red oak that was on my garage for a couple of years, it measure 5 1/2"...
  12. Spherical Segmented Bowl

    Hello everyone! This is my first post on LumberJocks. I made this bowl with a technique I developed and call, "spherical segmentation". It is quite a bit different than traditional segmenting and is not made up of stacked rings of segments. The segments are assembled into segment assemblies...

    This cabinet was built for a specific application in a family room. It serves as a corner cabinet between two sofas and is constructed to hold a computer, printer and supplies. Honduras mahogany was used for the exterior of the cabinet. It was toned with a dye stain to reduce the redness of...
  15. Oak Glue-Up Band Saw Boxes

    September, 2010 - Recently I started to "raise the canopy" on the oak tree in my front yard. This has yielded some large branches that I turned into "lumber" to glue up for box making. The smaller box is from the core of the larger box. After sanding down to 220 grit, I applied Watco danish...
  16. Play House.

    This play house was built in the summer of 2002 from plans. A lot of the wood used is reclaimed wood from packing crates and pallets. Both my son and daughter have made good use of it.
  17. On lathe buffer

    I wish I had thought of it. This is in the Oct 2012 Wood magazine, a tip from Tony Finlay from South Penrith, NSW, Australia. Thanks, Tony.!! Great idea using paint rollers as buffing pads. He used a dowel between centers, I turned a taper to be held in a chuck and cone live center. Everything...
  18. Supersize me !

    Hello , this is another commisioned piece made from Maple and Black Walnut . It is 16"wide x 20" long plus the handle adds about 5" to it and it is 9/16" thick . I reduced the thickness from 3/4" due to the weight factor for the elderly couple that ordered it from me. They love it and commented...

    This was a quick little project I did. I built it in a weekend and then finished it the following weekend. Its out of hickory that was given to me by a buddy that had it for no reason except that it was given to him. It's modeled after my drafting desk. I wish I would have dont the top...
