  1. Mahogany and tiger maple blanket/toy chest

    This project was the latest on the honey-do list. I built this as a toybox for my daughter Cecilia. The chest was built using African mahogany and tiger maple. I decided to put the new 1 1/2 hp motor in thew bandsaw to the test so I bookmatched all of the panels, including the top ands bottom. I...
  2. Dyed Tiger Maple Arcade Stick

    This is another arcade stick I built for personal use. I actually had the case done for a while, but I wasn't sure how to finish it, so it just sat in the shop for a while. A recent commission consisted of a big tiger maple case dyed blue, so after doing a few finish tests I decided I wanted...
  3. F-Class Benchrest Rifle Stock, Tiger Maple, cherry and walnut

    This is the first F-Class target stock I've carved. Last week I modified a benchrest stock into a specialized target stock for F-Class. It's benchrest, but the matches aren't shot from a bench. They shoot from 600 to 1000 yards from the prone position. Front rests and rear sandbags are...
  4. Fundraiser Item: Serving/Drink Tray

    I made this serving tray/drink tray for a fundraiser that we are having tonight for my wife, Lisa. She will be walking in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure, in San Diego, in the middle of November. It is a 3-day walk that spans 60-miles (20-miles/day). She has participated in the Susan...
  5. backgammon board 1st try

    Thanks to Gary K for the inspiration to do this project; I appreciate his work and willingness to share his knowledge with the rest of us. I have always wanted to build one of these for as long as I have been wood working. Gary was my push to make one for a gift, and most probably more gifts...
  6. Wine Inlay Pen

    I gave the Kallenshan inlay kits a try, and the result speaks for itself. No doubt that they are high quality blank, but man is it expensive. I'm pretty sure I paid over $20 for the BLANK only, not to mention the Sierra pen kit and supplies. It took some patience to get all the tiny little...
  7. Mantle Clock

    Made this for my cousin as a wedding gift. I used tiger maple as the material.
  8. Tiger Maple Tenon Backsaw - Disston D-4

    Just finished this 12 inch tenon saw thanks to some down time during Christmas vacation. It is based on the Disston D-4 12-inch tenon saw, with an obvious modification being curly maple material and milled brass hardware. I have been tinkering on a few custom saws for a traveling tool chest. The...
  9. Box for Becca

    Box patterned after the Wood Whisperers boxes. Bubinga and Tiger Maple finished with warmed BLO and beeswax.
  10. QD Tealight Holder

    Quick and dirty tea light holder in tiger maple and peruvian walnut, finished with spray lacquer. Simple project. I like it because it illuminates the faces of people around the table without getting in the way. Eight candles to fight back the dark!

  12. Birthday Present For Nikki

    I've known Nikki since we were kids and today is her birthday. This is what I made for her. The size is 7" x 4 3/8" x 3 3/4" high 1/2" thick Walnut for the sides and 1/4" Maple for the liner. 5/16" Tiger Maple for the lid panel and 1/4" Birch plywood for the bottom panel. The mitered corners...
  13. Sam Maloof style rocker

    I participated in a class to build a Sam Maloof style rocking chair taught by Randy Child. Randy was a friend of Sam Maloof and has built many rockers in this style. He offers a class in California but he came to VA to teach the class I attended. The chair is tiger maple with a 'colonial...
  14. Pocket Knife

    Made this recently. The photos don't do the tiger maple justice. Used 25 coats of poly on it. My 12 year old son is already eyeing it. I actually want him to have it
  15. Tiger Maple Potpourri Bowl

    Here is the Potpourri Bowl I turned for my wife's Christmas present this year. It is from a piece of Tiger Maple that I got from Rockler a couple of weeks ago when they were on sale. Could not start turning it until last tuesday when she went out of town to deliver the trays to her sister. 6...
  16. Trifecta

    This set started back in February when I made the small Walnut Burl box. I quickly decided that it needed a bigger brother, shortly after that the bigger box got a fraternal twin. Now I have a set. Like I said, this all started with this little gem back in February. This little box was so...
  17. Tiger maple and cherry gunstock with a walnut forearm tip for a Savage 25-06

    I used mineral spirits to show that this stock will look like wtih a finish. It's going to look a lot better with more sanding and a Watco Tung oil (fruit or light walnut color) And then Lin-Speed gunstock oil from Brownells. I'm running out of tiger maple. I guess I'll have to start making...
  18. Another desk

    Here's another desk I've made. Like the original I copied, it's in tiger maple which is something extraordinary for a period piece made in Pennsylvania. It does have some hidden compartments behind the drawers in the center compartment. All the secondaries are poplar. The case and drawers are...
  19. And another spice chest

    It's a tiger maple fest tonight, folks. Here's another spice chest on frame I've made. This one is in tiger maple. It has carved Spanish feet and tombstone raised panel doors. There are some secret compartments but I don't have pictures. This is the piece around which I wrote the article "It's a...
  20. *********************************** Kiefer Basket

    This is my *********************************** version of Kiefer's Thanksgiving basket. The woods are tiger maple and walnut. Instead of steam-bending the maple, I threw it outside and left it lay in a rainstorm for a day. The maple was a sliver that I had off another project and it was already pretty flimsy so I just...
