  1. Projects In Progress
    Ok, back again from Chapter 1 The Legs raise it up a tad. Trim coming up in the next installment. Another Day The legs are mitered into the corners, but needs something to hide all the "busy" going on. Made some cherry cap molding (top and bottom). So that's about it for the build...
  2. Projects In Progress
    I make a number of boxes that I sell at the local gift shop. I typically will try various veneers to keep them interesting, but to get "cooler" I'll need to step up my game. Unfortunately, I don't have anywhere near the skill sets of the various marquetry masters on this site. I also don't have...
  3. Jewelry Box

    I had a little walnut burl veneer left over from a vanity I had made my wife last summer. Thought I would cap it off with a matching jewelry box. The box and drawers are solid walnut and the drawers have the walnut burl fronts. Purple is her favorite color, so I lined the drawer bottoms with the...

  5. Teamwork Box (with Bob the scroll saw man)

    So here was the thought. Bob does super scroll work and I make boxes. Why not combine talents? I wanted to make a yellow ribbon box featuring some figured movingui for the ribbon itself and I had this 1/8 inch walnut veneer. I sized the veneer to the approximate size of the box and...
  6. Empire table

    Couple months ago we delivered this Empire diner room table. Our clients loves empire and asked us to create a dining room table inspired by an italian empire library table. The top was made from solid mahogany Patrick Edwards bought in 72 or 74, I can't remember. The marquetry for the...

    I built this "rustic nightstand" from my scrap pile by request. It's only 12" tall and wide. The carcase is held together with sliding dovetails. The only fasteners are a few brads to locate the top.

  10. Modern Mirror Frame

    This was inspired by a mirror we saw in a store that was way too expensive so I offered to make it for mother's day. It took a while to find an appropriate mirror on Craig's List so I didn't start working on it until October. The frame is 40"x40" and 4" deep and the mirror diameter is 31"...
  11. Venerred Bathtub Tray

    I made this bathtub tray for my sister, who moved into an apartment with a huge bathtub that no commercial tray would span. It's the fanciest rectangle I've ever built :) . The central panel is baltic birch ply with walnut veneer and a marquetry fish pattern (one of the underwater enemies from...
  12. Veneer Plywood Spinners......

    I just had to jump on the band wagon and build a few spinners. Started out as solid wood (Pic 6) and evolved into these hybrid homemade veneer plywood things. No CNC involved, but did eventually use one of the cheap store bought spinner as a pattern. The trick is to achieve balance, which is...
  13. Wood Veneer Business Cards With My Bandsaw

    Wanted to try cutting my own veneers to print my business cards on. They aren't exact size but I'm happy with the outcome. I leave a natural edge when I print on cedar and of course they smell great. Softer woods work extremely well, hardwoods brake apart.
  14. Oak Half Door with Top Ledge

    This is a door I made for another of my neighbors. They said they had an idea about having a half door made to separate their laundry room and kitchen. They also have dogs and needed to keep them out so they didn't have to use their chairs to block the doorway. A top ledge was also needed to...

    after being married 14 year only my wife would want something from my shop! so she wished for a potato and onion bin but she wanted a spot for garlic to so that is why the top opens.
  16. Frames that started as a box

    Originally, I'd planned on making a veneered box after reading, "A Box That Earns Its Stripes" Fine Woodworking #207. After seeing how incredibly complex it would be, I lost steam and aborted the mission! I ended up making 16 4" x 6" frames with the veneered strips that I'd cut. I've...
  17. Art Deco Game Table

    My first posted project. If you guys like it, I've got plenty more I can contribute. I just finished this one up to go with several more Art Deco pieces. This table has a reversible top with storage underneath for chips, cards, and games. The top is veneered with Mahogany with Walnut border and...
  18. Inlayed boxes

    Two boxes inlayed with the silhouettes of two of my friends. Made to experiment with new techniques and new finishes (well… new to me, they're all as old as the hills).
  19. Double Vision

    Several months ago I sliced a piece of Scouler Willow into veneer and knew it was special, I just didn't know what for. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/39121 Then this week I cut a set of four albatrosses in classic style marquetry and remembered the willow veneers waiting in their drawer. When...
  20. BARK ON BIRCH BOX

    This is the box I have been wanting to make for some time because I had this piece of birch bark veneer that I posted some time ago . All the ideas and materials came together and it seems to work. The birch bark which I glued to some MDF has not changed in colour or size since I glued it so it...
