  2. The Tower

    Of Australian Red Cedar.
  3. Tapered Display Tower - Beetle-Kill Pine

    Technically, it's just about' finished. May get one more coat of spar varnish. May get 600 grit wet-sanded. May get paste wax applied. May get nothing more, in the finishing department. AND … the 1/4" baltic birch ply that I used as backer did NOT take the stain well, so I'll either re-do...
  4. Dice Towers

    Some of my older projects. I designed and built the first for a coworker who was a fan of board games. After I put his together I found it too much fun to play with and had to build one for myself. Each tower has an identical set of four baffles in the middle to randomize the rolls of dice...
  5. Toddler Tower

    I improvised my own design after checking out various designs on Pintrest. Used baltic birch, 1/4 inch sides and 1/2 inch back and back, platform & steps. Platform is adjustable to 3 heights by removing 2 screws on the sides. Semi-gloss polyurethane finish to make it waterproof in the kitchen...
  6. D&D Magnetic Dice Towers and Holders Made for Friends

    So a couple years ago, after about a 25 year Hiatus, I started playing D&D with some friends. A few were completely new to the game and a couple used to play in High School/College, like I did, so it's been a fun mix. I made a magnetic Dice Tower for myself patterned after the excellent design...
  7. Wooden tower

    This was the first project I made after we moved house. It's a pine wooden tower to play my daughters and their friends. The wood has been treated with pressured copper sulfate in order to lasts for years outdoors. I also have given two coats of a preserve gel that I found on the market.
  8. Miniature Lifeguard Tower for Garden

    My sister Karen has a good sized flower garden. Many years ago, she bought a miniature lifeguard tower for her garden. She puts a doll on the tower to watch over her garden. After many years, Mother Nature took her toll on the tower. Rather than replace it, I decided to build a new one. I...
  9. 320 Drawers- Beech wood

    This is not my build. I just could not find out how to insert the photo of this awesome 320 drawer tower made of beech. Someone made this in Lucerne, Switzerland at the beginning of the 20th century. I can not imagine how long this took to make ! It is so nice. I wish I could own it but it...
  10. dice towers I've made Part 2: Electric Boogaloo.

    A while ago I posted some dice towers I've made(that post can be found here) and I recently got inspired to redo my design and improve the look. In the first picture from left to right: Virginia Pine finished with Osmo Polyx, Virginia Pine with a water based finish, and Poplar with a satin...
  11. Dice Tower and Tray

    Yes, I am a nerd. I'm in two different tabletop RPG groups that require substantial amounts dice rolling. I had some cherry and walnut cutoffs from another project that I am working on and decided to throw these together. Found and resawed a bit of paduak for color. Everything is held together...
  12. Learning/Activity Tower

    This learning/activity tower project has been incredibly rewarding to build for my grandkids. And now for some of the young families I work with. It all started when my son (pictured) asked me if I would build one for my grandson. Of course the answer was yes before I even saw the plans. As it...
  13. display tower #1

    walnut display tower with antler handle. One of my first furniture pieces. Had plans to work by. Just really liked this design and wood working abilities still green. Still are! Fun learning though.
  14. Display tower # 2

    Needed more room, built tower #2. This is Oak. I made a drawer on this one for the little stands and things I use inside. The door knob does not turn. It is a piece of elk crown with a scrimshaw eagle head, and the drawer handle is a slab of elk antler with a scrimshaw running wolf. I also do...
  15. I swear I'm not a cat person

    Here's a very old picture, another one that predates my shop, built this cat tower about 5 years ago for my daughters since they were adopting two cats, it stands about 6 feet tall and wedges perfectly into the corner behind the fireplace. Made out of left over plywood, few 4×4's and found some...
  16. Wine Tower - Wedding Gift #2

    Another Nephew getting married this coming weekend. Thought this would make a nice gift with a couple of bottles of fine wine. This tower will sit right on their kitchen island and can hold 14 bottles of wine. The column is a single piece of curly maple, and the base and cap are made from...
  17. My First Pen

    This was my first pen several months ago. I've worked with wood nearly all my life on and off but only bought a lathe a couple of years ago and I don't get to spend much time on it. When I did this one, I really wasn't sure what to expect I only had basic sandpaper etc. at the time so it's...
  18. Bathroom accessories

    We have finished renovation in another bathroom - also in contemporary black-and-white style. I have built two small pieces of "furniture": an iPad charging station/shelf with robe hooks and the toilet paper tower. The shelf is screwed directly to the studs - the screw heads are hidden under...
  19. Dice Tower - Curse negator

    Hi Lumberjocks My friends and I, enjoy playing board games when we get together, so I wanted something nice to go along with our game night. I have looked at several designs for various dice towers. Luckily I stumbled upon Hampshire Woodworks gallery, and found the design I liked the most. It...
  20. Site Help and Suggestions
    I have a small garage/shop with limited space. I want to add a router table and would rather go with a regular router table than a bench top. Up here in Alaska we have snow (8 months) and I drive my work van in at night which also drags in snow and that creates moisture in my garage/shop. I'm...
