  1. Projects Walnut serving tray w/ cherry inlay

    This was something I made on request; the customer asked for a walnut serving tray with cherry inlay. It is about 18"x15" The sides with the handles I attached with walnut dowels for strength. For the bottom, I wanted to use one solid piece, but the widest board I had was only about 12 inches...

  4. Scrollsaw Blade Holder

    Just a quick weekend project - I needed a new blade holder for the scroll saw. I found a source online where I could buy poly-acrylic test tubes fairly cheap so I ordered a couple dozen. Once they arrived I searched the scrap pile until I found some pretty nice pieces - nothing fancy though...

    Some scrap Walnut and left over Oak, then try to remember how to cut them Dovetails. A few rubs of French polish then a coat of Fiddles wax.

  7. Wine tasting, hors d'oeuvre tray

    These are also Christmas presents i have made this year for friends and family. Have you ever been at a tasting and glass in one hand and tray of goodies in the other and no place to put either down to enjoy one or the other. Saw some of these made of plastic and stole the idea. Woods are...
  8. Brightening up some dull platters.

    These three 11" diam. platters were turned using Australian White Cedar, there was no worthy grain and looked rather dull. In the effort to make them presentable I turned the bases down to around 1/4" or less thick and thought I would try mosaic patterns. The first one I did with...
  9. Lichtenberg Pattern Jewelery Box

    After playing with the wood burning technique introduced to me by Jim Jakosh I decided to put the results into a project. The overall outside box dimensions are 11.5" x 7.5". The top overhangs about an additional inch on each side. The top is 7/8" thick, but the steep taper makes it look a lot...
  10. Prayer Kneeler or Prie Dieu

    This project was built at the request of a colleague's wife. She asked if I thought I could build her one and I said, why not? If anyone on lumberjacks sees resemblance to their works, it is probably because this was one of the first places I looked to get ideas for a project I had never...
  11. Outdoor serving tray

    Outdoor serving tray/BBQ tray. Based loosely on a design I found on the web. The curved leg pieces are not the most efficient in using wood but look nice. Corner splines are maple. Wood is re-claimed redwood from a deck some folks were going to tear off and burn. I couldn't let that happen...
  12. XL Serving Tray

    Every year I attempt to make my wife something special for Christmas. So with a family of 7 I decided to make her an extra large serving tray. It measure 15" wide by 24 1/2" long. It's made of solid figured cherry and walnut. So it has some nice weight to it but handles it's tasks very well...
  13. Office Corner Desk

    I built this desk when i was only in 11th grade of highschool. I had many offers from faculty to purchase this item but i turned them down because i wanted to keep it for my self. This desk is fairly large but works great for a home office. There are many compartments. this piece is built out...
  14. Resurrected Bird House

    Had an old birdhouse that's seen it's better days. Used to have lots of stuff on it and now only has character. The birds really like it (I could fill it 3 times a day) so when the bottom rotted out, I got some bits (there I go again) of cedar fence and made a new bottom and sides. Drilled...
  15. for woodshaver (tony) inside of TV/Book table as requested by members

    Tony (woodshaver) had requested a closer look at the inside of my previous posting of TV/book tables. Hope this covers it.
  16. Serving Tray

    My wife wanted a serving tray so I got on Youtube, watched Steve Ramsey and downloaded some plans. I used Cherry for the apron and Maple for the bottom. This was the second time I've resawn wood and it showed. I really wanted to match the wood grain and for me that was a challenge. I have a...
  17. More Christmas gifts

    I made this picture fame for my grandma. I was originally going to stain the cherry, but then I came across this textured spray paint and thought it would be cool use. I was very pleased with the end result. As for the cutting boards, I can say I'm in the cutting board club, although these...
  18. Router Plane Storage Box

    An appropriate box was needed for my Veritas Router Plane. Ambrosia maple hand dovetailed, with a recessed bottom that holds the plane in place. Chest handles came from Lee Valley. All the accessories reside in a compartment tray made from Greek Olive wood that came from a blown down tree in...
  19. Table Mats - not many joints in these

    On a number of occasions, my wife, Avril, has mentioned that our table mats were looking rather sad. But when looking at the sets of four offered for sale in various shops, she rejected them all as 'Not quite what I was looking for', and being rather expensive for what they were - especially as...

    OK, I am not even thinking I am in the category of Lazy Larry's. His work is far above & beyond these. But these are my first attempt at these. First one is cedar and the other two are elm.
