  1. Air Force retirement trunk

    I finished this retirement trunk for a Command Master Sergeant in the Air Force a while back but it was just presented recently. The customer wanted it to be able to hold his bugle yet still be able to remove it easily for use. This presented a bit of a challenge since all I had to go off of...
  2. Leopard box

    I made this box this summer for a customer who requested a chest with a leopard print theme. I used MDF for the panels and covered them with leopard print paper and varnish. The frame and accent pieces are walnut, padauk, and cherry. I had a lot of fun with this project as it allowed my...
  3. Restored Antique Cedar Chest

    I found this little gem in Montgomery and bought it for $35. It had a water damaged lid. It looked like a wet magazine or book was left on top of it under a leak in the ceiling. The skirt was completely destroyed. I took the entire thing apart, which was a task. I was very fortunate that...
  4. Plywood Toy Box with Reclaimed Oak Overlay

    This was a project that my niece asked me to build for her daughter (two years old now). She just wanted a plain plywood box. I can't just do a plain plywood box. I hate stain, but she does not. She asked me to stain it the same color as her furniture. So, I ragged on a coat of Red Mahogany...

  7. Steamer Trunk

  8. Oak Blanket Trunk for Grand daughter

    I've been holding out on posting this because my camera went on the fritz. They don't build them like they used to. Unlike this trunk which with reasonable care will likely outlast all of us. Nothing extraordinary here. No plans. Just a solid red oak box and some joinery and trim. The...
  9. Butternut Trunk

    This one's made with Butternut, which I understand is in the walnut family. The dark wood is walnut. Birch buttons. The butternut is veneered onto LuAnn plywood for the box. The bent walnut strips are thin strips glued together with plastic resin glue and molded with a 2×6 form to get the...
  10. White/black trunk

    This trunk was ordered by my coworker to decorate her anteroom. It was made of pretty old firwood furniture boards. She wanted it to be on wheels, but I like it more without. Her idea was to make simple squared trunk, but I ''don't know'' how to make it that simple. Metal parts were sprayed in...

  12. Retirement trunk

    I was commissioned to build this trunk for a Marine Corps Colonel retiring after 30 plus years. Very happy with the way that it came out. The box is made of pine with accenting pieces of walnut, african mahagony, and bloodwood. Incorporated emblems from Battalion 1/9, the Citadel, and Georgia...

  15. Ebony stained Aspen Foot Locker

    I've been making hope chests/foot lockers for my nieces and nephews graduation gifts. I try to match design elements to each of their individual tastes and personality. Luke is a musician and typically wears black shirts and/or hats. Therefore, his footlocker was destined to take on a black...

  18. 3D Tree Bookcase

    To make the best use of the room in my new born son's room and to add to extra fun to it, I made a 3D Tree Bookcase to go off the corner of his closet. The base of the tree is a little over a foot wide and the branches stretch out as far as 8 feet at the top. It was made from four sheets of...
