  1. Walnut and Maple Teabox

    There is a funny story behind this tea box. I was commissioned by one of my wife's cousins to make a tea box for his girlfriend for a valentines day gift. I was pretty excited as it was my first ever box and I've always looked for a reason to make one but never have had a good one. So the...
  2. Cherry Kitchen

    I designed and built this Cherry kitchen with a cherry bevel-edged laminate top for a very nice couple. It was completed with their living style interrupted for less than a week. The wife told me she did not think it was possible to ever have her dream kitchen, but that we had hit a home run.
  3. Quilt rack

    Finished a quilt rack for my son Ben just in time for Christmas. He inherited some of my mom's quilts after she passed away and he found some he really liked and wanted a way to display them. This is the result with one of our quilts that mom made for us as an example of her handiwork. All hand...
  4. Cruz Towing

    The youngest great-grandson has been playing with my 19 year old tow truck. He wanted me to make him one. I had to make 2 one for his older brother also. So here is the Cruz towing Company fleet. Made from shop scraps in a variety of woods-many unknown for species. The bumpers & hooks are oak...
  5. G & G inspired entertainment center

    After finishing my shop last year, I fell into a slump. Not because i didnt feel like building anything but because I was having a difficult time finding inspiration. I knew what i wanted to build but was not sure about style. Fortunately I came across a post by Darrell Peart and fell in love...

  7. Stained Glass Storage Box

    This one of 2 boxes my wife requested to put her larger pieces of stained glass in to keep the colors separated and also so she can retrieve them easily. I did not have enough of the 1/2" plywood to make them both at once . This box goes on a shelf in a small closet that I fitted with shelves...
  8. Lamp #3

    Hi everyone, Made this lamp from ricepaper, leftover pieces of walnut and oak. I initially made it as a birthday gift, but i like it too much to give away :). The Idea was to incoporate his company logo in the lamp on all sides, so it shines trough. I will have to make another one . It's again...
  9. Stand for Chinese Tile

    One of my client's found this old Chinese tile at a flea market, and asked me to build a display stand for it. My goal to make something that would feel stylistically appropriate without detracting from the real show-piece which was the tile. I used some nice straight grained Sapele with a...
  10. My "Norm Router Table" Build (Part 1)

    Initially, I planned to build the "Norm's Ultimate Router Table" from Dan Phalen's plans. I decided to modify the plans slightly by adding an extra drawer below the router lift/motor, and making a single side-drawer with removable shelves for router bit storage, etc. I covered the top surface...
  11. Ceda-Syca Box -- NOT a spoon

    Made out of cedar and sycamore with walnut splines. The box measures 7'' x 7'' x 3'' and the top is 8'' x 8''. Each side of the box is half of each wood and the sides are alternated. It turned out better than I had envisioned. This was also my first attempt at spline joints and although...

    This piece of curly spotted gum flooring was given to me by a bridge player. I put it with 2 stripes of curly redgum, that were from a weatherboard that I scavenged last February. Also added pieces of straight-grain spotted-gum and redgum, and some huon pine and some rock maple that were...

  14. Easy Build Clamp Rack

    How to make a simple clamp rack. When you have a small shop like mine we have to use every bit of wall space available so I built this simple clamp rack behind my Drill Station. I make a horizontal clamp rack by cutting down a 2×4 and drilling 1/2 inch holes at an angle to except 4×1/2 inch...

  16. Wood & Lumber
    Hey guys, Long time lurker, finally decided to join. I need your wealth of knowledge. I got this small piece of wood from the local lumber yard.

  17. Wood & Lumber
    I was able to salvage some wood from a neighbor when they took down a dead tree, but they didn't know anything about the tree. The bulk of the wood was rotten and termites were found in portions of the trunk, but the larger limbs had some salvageable wood. I coated it with Anchorseal and a year...
  18. Hand Tools
    I'm thinking of buying an old Stanley Bailey Jack plane. I asked the seller which type it is and he told me he didn't know. I asked him to tell me what the patent date is and he told me there isn't one anywhere. How can I tell which type it is?

    Hello guys. I am making cabinets for my kitchen. I have that project posted here. I have noticed that some of the maple is leaning towards having a pink tinge or shade to it. It is nice. Some of the material is white compared to the pink stuff and some of the maple had brown or black spots and...
