  1. Maple Sink Base

    Here's a maple sink base I made based on homeowner sketches (yikes!). All material was rough cut to begin so all the milling too me quite a while. He wanted 4 inch thick legs so i ended up using 10/4 and gluiong up two pieces after carefully jointing them. My years in a handmade furinture...
  2. Cedar Goblet

    Last summer a windstorm came by and uprooted this gorgeous red cedar. I decided to try my luck with a live-edge turning. The wood was so wet my fingers were dripping water while I was turning. But after giving it a couple nights to dry out, it was ready to be turned to the finished dimensions...
  3. Lever-Action Boxes

    These boxes were made of lacewood (silky oak) with mitered joints and birch keys. The top is opened by pressing down on one end, which makes the other end flip up an inch. Was a great learning experience, and the path is detailed in my blog Yes, the miter joint is awful in the closeup (I would...
  4. Cherry Nightstands

    Built 2002 - 2006 This pair of nightstands was taken from Woodsmith Magazine #76, however I modified it for hight since the original was only 22" tall! I started the project while living at a house that had a double-car garage for my workshop (ah, nice to be spread out), but then I moved...
  5. Moxon Joinery bench

    My regular woodworking bench is at the perfect hight for planing wood, but I wanted something a little bit higher for doing more detailed work such as carving or joinery. The moxon vise is made with 3/4" acme threaded rod and the matching nuts, which I embedded behind the non-moving wood jaw...
  6. Cocobolo Frames for Wedding Photos

    I made four copies of the same photo and four frames to match - they're for immediate family members. I really love the way they turned out. I wanted to showcase the grain of the wood and love the contrast when you can get a piece of cocobolo that has both heartwood and sapwood. I made 2"...
  7. Reproduction of Tender Memories (John Hall)

    This is a birthday gift for my oldest son. On the picture you see him with his fiance. First I need to thank Marc, our wood whisperer, for the nice blog done on the picture frames from John Hall. From this collection , the picture frame Tender Memories stood out to me. The wood I used is...
  8. Reclaimed timber picture frames

    Here are some picture frames made from reclaimed and scrap stock. I wanted to make 2 frames to house my son's self portrait lino prints. So I got to work on some smaller frames from cut-offs - all keyed mitres. The darker wood came up beautifully after a 'mahogony' stain and some Linseed Oil...
  9. San Francisco Arts & Crafts Fair Tile Frame

    Last year, we won the drawing for a commemorative tile at the festival/fair thingy. It's really cool (signed by the artist and 1 of 1 edition), and a great souvenir of our time in the Bay Area. I promised my girlfriend that I'd make a frame for it (someday). Well, while I was pondering my...
  10. Doug-Fir & glass craftman style cabinets

    These are two lowered base cabinets that the customer wanted to use to delineate the space between their living and dining areas. They are VG Fir finished with conversion lacquer. The doors and finished "end-panels" were routed to accept the seeded glass or the solid VG Fir 1/4 in paneling. Here...
  11. Bathtub reading table

    I recently completed a reading table for the bathtub. The table is made of 3" boards to allow for wood movement in the very humid environment of a bathroom directly over a filling/full tub. The wood is mahogany. That's partly because it is hard enough to hold up to use but soft enough to be...
  12. The N00b's Birch Picture Frames

    Continuing to learn a lot about how things work in the wood shop - what causes tear-out, how to use a keyhole bit - the lessons are endless (and often "learned" multiple times). This is a gift for a good friend of mine, three pictures I took of his puppy printed on canvas and mounted on...
  13. Ariculated truck

    Model made from TJ plan, use yellow heart wood for the body and ebonized oak for the wheels. A lot of détails on this one.
  14. Mandolin and Guitar Stands

    Hey all. I was sick of using my case, and always using ugly guitar stands. I saw a fellow LJ'er (ajosephg) and his attempt at a wooden one he saw on guitarcenter.com and I thought he did a great job. I looked up the same one and drew up a design in autocad. Link to fullsize printable...
  15. Rocking Horse!

    I just finished up a commissioned rocking horse! I kept me super busy all week, but I know my customer will be pleased! It's made of Hard Maple and Walnut, and constructed using screws (faster assembly, it was a tight deadline) and dowels (also walnut). And for the curious, I'm an Industrial...
  16. Spice Box #2 and # 3

    This past Christmas I made two spice boxes for both of our daughters I thought I would share them with you, the first ( 3 photos) for the oldest daughter is made from Walnut and spalted Maple, the inside drawers are burled walnut veneer on pine fronts, the second one ( 3 photos) is made from...
  17. Toy Train

    This is a toy train that I made for my Nephew last Christmas, a bigger project than it looks because there were a lot of pieces.
  18. Heart Lamp

    This is really a fun one. This is a lamp made of cherry. I used my angle grinder again to carve this out of solid cherry. Inside this is a small flood light. This is mounted on a turned pedistal and sits on a purple heart base. One of the little balls on the base is the light switch. Mounted on...
  19. A budding romance

    Every year I donate a piece to a heart auction. This year, instead of a box or lamp, I created this bud vase. It is made of maple. It is 18×6 x 9 inches. The base is bubinga. This was carved with an angle grinder. Then refined with scrapers and finally sanded to 2000 grit and finished with tung...
  20. Ambrosia Maple Bentwood Rings - Look Ma, no tools!

    So, about two weeks ago, I heard of these 'bentwood rings'... and, even though I had no idea what they were, or how to make them, I figured I would do a few minutes of research, and try my hand at it. Well, I've been practicing a bit, and these are the first three that I'm decently pleased with...
