  1. White Storage Seat Box

    This is a white storage box I made for one of my neighbors. It is made out of white 3/4 melamine with white band edging. When the seat is the lid and when it is lifted you can see the rails giving the seat support. I originally made it for her to be a toy box but it has been turned into a toy...
  2. 55mm End Grain Chopping Board / Butchers Block Exotic Hard woods

    This board has been carefully hand-crafted using reclaimed and locally sourced Ash, Beech and Sapele. It is made with waterproof, food safe glue and is a minimum of 55mm thick to provide strength and durability for everyday use. It is finished with a mixture of food grade mineral oil and natural...
  3. 45mm End Grain Chopping Board / Butchers Block

    Most wooden chopping boards are made from long grain timbers. Whilst species dependent, long grain tends to be hard and close knit. The surface is subject to marking and scoring and will quickly blunt the keenest knife edge. End grain, on the other hand, will open to allow the knife to penetrate...
  4. Lowboy and excavator

    The semi and lowboy were constructed a few years ago with the intent of building a dozer or excavator to pair with it. This past January I started fabricating the track section for the Toys and Joys excavator. The track pads are cherry with the rest of the excavator being white hard maple. My 60...
  5. Log skidder

    This log skidder was my first attempt at a Toys and Joys model. The Timberjack skidder with a 3 cylinder Detroit diesel holds a special place in my heart. Years ago a building I had my shop in was in the lot of a logging company. The lot in front of my building was the staging area for all the...
  6. Zak's Toybox

    This is a toybox that my grandfather made over 30 years ago for me. I did a little fixing and refinishing and gave it to my son. Plus I just needed a good excuse to show off my boy! ...and yes, that is him hitting MY finger with a hammer in my new profile pic…

  7. Heavy Woodworking Workbench - no metal

    Wanted to build a heavy woodworking table/bench for quite a while now. Of course my goal here was a workbench but I was also working on some other skills I have never done so that is why I finished it a little more than I would normally for a shop workbench. This bench was inspired by Jay...
  8. School bus

    This is a Toys and Joys school bus build. I used white hard maple for this. The seats, front directional lights and license plate frames are black walnut. I purchased the birch wheels and the buttons that are used for the taillights and the beacon lights on the front. This bus is being given to...
  9. High track dozer

    Here is the high track dozer I built from a Toys and Joys plan. I used northern white hard maple in this build. I used black walnut for the seat and makore for the track pads. Generally I use cherry for the tracks but I had some thin makore so I decided to go with that for this one. I finish my...
  10. Phillies Locker Murphy bed | Custom

    This is a murphy bed designed to look like a locker. The two outer doors are actual lockers with storage, but the center ones are false and come down with the bed. We did this one in a Phillies theme. The client also wanted more of a wood look so we used a maple with clear coat on parts. The...
  11. Hammer Handle

    This Hammer handle was a piece of red oak saved from the firewood pile. The hammer head was given to me by Dad, he said that it was my grandfathers, as was the spokeshave. I used the spoke shave to whittle the wood down to size and shape. I coated the handle with 4 coats of Minwax Spar Urethane...
  12. Hexagonal Magnetic Knife Block

    I made this magnetic knife block for a Mother's Day gift (that's now late since I work slowly), based on a similar project by JDBlades. There are neodymium magnets in the plugged holes, two in each side of the hexagon to keep the knives attached and aligned. The different heights of the sides...
  13. First major project

    This is my first large project. I found it in a woodworking book. I didn't really care for the way the book joined the top and shelf so I joined them with dowels. I "had" to by a biscuit joiner for the legs. I learned a few things making it. I will use those nuggets to make a matching end table.
  14. Plate cabinet

    There is a place in our kitchen intended for a smaller refrigerator than the one we currently have. The wife wanted something to fill that void and this was my solution.
  15. Building a Shop Mascot from a 2x4

    Hi All, This project was my entry into the recent 2nd Annual Summer's Woodworkings 2×4 competition. I decided to try and produce a Creeper from Minecraft and keep it as a workshop Mascot. If you're not familiar with Minecraft, it is a computer game and the creeper is the iconic bad guy of the...
  16. More cedar and pine dovetailed bicycle baskets+ new branding iron.

    Similar to my other posts this time with pine and slightly different colors of cedar. These are CNC cut and assembled using titebond 3. The crate is fully joined using asymmetrical dovetails and rabbets and dados for the bottom. I debated weather to float the bottom to allow for expansion and...
  17. Pink Trumpet Band Saw Box with One Drawer

    September, 2010-This pretty much uses up the pink trumpet wood I had from the pruning I did last year in the back yard. The limbs are squared up on the table saw, and then glued up into a nice blank for the band saw. I used Titebond II wood glue. I used the Golden Oak stain from Minwax...
  18. Foldup Cookbook Holder

    Walnut and Hard Maple.
  19. More Cutting Boards

    One for a gift and one for a family reunion 'door prize drawing' on Labor Day. Lots of variety in wood. Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Purpleheart, and Bubinga all used to cut starting strips. Strips glued then cut again and rolled 90 degrees and alternated. Used TiteBond 3 for the waterproof factor...
  20. Rocking Horse

    Completed May 28, 2012: Constructed from laminated ¾" Pine for the body and head, and ¾" Red Oak for the legs and rocker. No metal fasteners used in the construction except for the adjustable foot stirrups, I made it adjustable so it can be adjusted as the child grow older. I did not like the...
