  1. A First Finial

    I've never done any sort of decorative turning, so I thought I'd try my hand at making an ornate finial today. I didn't plan anything out, and just turned whatever came to mind. It is hard maple with a linseed oil/shellac blend finish, and is 3" tall.
  2. Classic Fretwork Shell Candle Tray

    Here is another tray I designed and cut out on the scroll saw. It is made of maple. The lighting of the candle in the main picture really makes the wood look darker than it actually is. It is more like the other two pictures in reality. I embedded Swarovski pearl beads in the center of each...
  3. Wooden Shop Squares

    Squares of all kinds are an important shop tool. but sometimes just the exercise of building your own tool helps you better understand that tool on a deeper level. A couple months ago Chris Schwarz over at Pop Wood Magazine got my attention when he started blogging about a square Patrick Leach...
  4. Woven Multi-colored Scroll Saw Basket

    Some of you scrollers out there may want to try this fun project. I'll give the plans url and YouTube instructional video below. I decided to laminate the board with strips of sapele. mahogany and poplar. I didn't have a wide enough board anyway, so it served a practical purpose. For me, good...
  5. Buffet

    This was a buffet I build to match the rest of a clients dining room, I hated using the rotor cut plywood for the doors but thats what was on the china cabinet that all ready had, I think it was build by a family member of their and they really wanted to match as close as possible out side of...
  6. Mahogany Bookcase

    This is my first project that I designed from the ground up. The case and shelves are 3/4 "Genuine" Mahogany ply while the face frame and shelf edging is African Mahogany. The entire project was dyed using Potassium Dichromate in order to get a color match between the two Mahogany species. The...
  7. Level Vial Boxes From Recycled Wood Levels

    Sorry to be away for awhile. Was under the weather and now been working a lot in the shop. What to do with antique and wooden level bodies that are not worth restoration? The ones from the parts heap. Bandsaw time! Nothing like some old seasoned cherry, maple and mahogany to make some replicas...
  8. Teak Wine Caddy

    OK, after a 20 year break it was time to get back into woodworking again. This was adapted from a pattern from DIY Network. I increased the storage to 9 bottles, 6 just didn't seem to be enough for those serious parties. It is solid teak with a teak latticework back and teak rope doweling, no...
  9. Bocote Ring with Brass

    I have not posted anything in awhile,I have been in Kentucky with my dad, who has a brain tumor and has had to go thru alot of treatment and things to try and shrink it. God has been with him and my family to help us thru it. In my time while helping taking care of him, I found a little free...
  10. Folding Breakfast Tray

    This lovely tray is modeled after those used in the PBS series "Downton Abbey". Made of walnut it features angled finger joints on the tray rails and a clever wooden spring mechanism that holds the legs closed in storage, and locks the legs open in use. If you want to build your own version...
  11. The beginnings of my woodworkings..

    These are some pictures of 3 different projects that i did on my free time, not really knowing if i could do it or not, you know, the way a pro would.. So i started with drawings, i could at least do that. I blended curves and added leaves as i went. Most people wouldn't believe me if i told...
  12. Maple Rad Heater Cover 3

    Third and final rad cover for my client and in that case I really had this project perfected. I did. But the difference between this one and the other two was the colour stain involved. And with that being said I almost had it homeward bound. Then when my client arrived to take it home, she was...
  13. Beer Plane attempt (Inspired from Tim and Kiefer)

    Hey everyone, hope the week and New Year has been good to you so far. Thanks to the fine work and creativity of LJ buddies Tim and Kiefer I really thought this was such a clever project….and being I like a good beer, although a Stewarts Root Beer is just as good, I decided to give a try at this...

  15. Bubinga Cutting Board

    Finally- I have been able to finish this Bubinga Cutting Board! My brother and I were given the wood for it about 3 months ago and have finally been able to get it done after having some delays on buying handles. It is 4 pieces of wood glued together to make the final size 16" x 20". The...

  17. Purple waterfall

    Made with purple heart, walnut, maple and bocote. Lined with felt as always and finished with minwax antique oil and wax! It was bought by a box collector Hampton NH
  18. Yellowheart Treasure Chest Box

    This is a simple little box. It just takes some patience and a good belt in the stationary sander. The design I was working from had a drawer in the bottom (Donna Menke design-a LJ in good standing). I decided to keep it simple and just do the lift top. Yellowheart is great to work with. I...
  19. Connecticut Lowboy

    I started building this maybe 3 years ago (time flies) and finally finished it early this summer. Made from plans found in popular woodworking magazine, article by Glen D. Huey. As per the article I think this project was a great intro into building period furniture. Not too complicated as long...
  20. Cherry Heart Box

    Heart shaped solid cherry box. The finish is a hand rubbed mixture of boiled linseed oil and polyurethane varnish. The bottom is felt lined (but from looking at the pictures I need to cut a new piece of felt to get a little better fit around part of the edge) The lid has a 1/4" x 3/8" lip around...
