  1. Cherry Tool Cabinet

    This cabinet was designed around the Golden Mean, an early school project as practise in hand tools. The criteria was dovetails and tenons, all cut by hand. This piece fastens to the wall with a french cleat. I epoxied rare earth magnets into the cleat and veneered over them so most hand tools...

    This is a jewelry box for my wife Sherri which features sand shaded marquetry cut in the classic style.

  7. Jewelry box

    Although my second project on here, this was my first woodwork project that really got me hooked. A christmas present for my girlfriend last year. I had no experience whatsoever other than my metalwork bachground, as you can probably tell from custom made hardware and the bolted on hinges...
  8. my first marquetry

    these babies are over 40 years old. As i started them i got so enthused that i bought four more, some in 18×24in size. These are, to be honest kits, with templates to outlline the design on the veneers, which are then cut out with razor knives and inlayed together. Sort of like paint by number...

  12. Marquetry Boxes

    I had a stash of claro walnut that I had always wanted to do something with, and with Christmas nearly around the corner, I thought of cranking out a few small marquetry boxes. These are 2 of the 4 that I made with the same flower design - the other 2 have a quilted maple background instead of...

    I recently had a nice contract to do some parquetry work that was installed in 8 thresholds. There were some tricks involved in doing this kind of work. I wrote about the project on my Furniture Blog if you're interested in learning about it.
  14. Bouquet of Flowers Marquetry Box

    Inspiration for this project came from Matt Nedeljko's beautiful Bouquet of Flowers Marquetry Box that he made for his wife, Sherri. See Matt's writeup for more on the origin of this design. Since I did not have the original pattern, I used one of Matt's photos of his project, along with Adobe...
  15. Small kitchen remodel

    We often do kitchens. Sometimes they are very challenging. Sometimes they are easy. This was an easy one, except the client, (wife), didn't know what she wanted. Compounding the problem, both the husband and wife are Greek, and weren't comfortable with their english. My wife is Greek also, so I...

    A neighbor saw me getting into wood clock making and asked if i could design her a clock for her grandson's room. PS. He LOVES dinosaurs. The above item is the result. I had originally attempted to use marquetry techniques, but the lacewood veneer I attempted to make the body out of was too...
  17. Wooden Flower Petal Punch

    I came across the how to make wooden flowers series by Ronbrush and had to give it a try. http://lumberjocks.com/Ronbrush/blog/series/7187 Cutting them out was taking me a very long time so I wanted to make my own petal punch like he mentions in #3 of his lesson. Using part of an old bandsaw...
  18. Wood & Lumber
    I am looking to replace several ugly painted closet doors and when I check on buying doors with the veneers I seem to be limited in sizes of doors that don't fit what I need. Going custom is cost prohibitive. I am wondering if anyone has had experience putting veneer on paint grade solid core...
