  1. Friction Fit Wooden Jewellery Box

    In this video I will be making this beautiful Jewellery Box, designed for some Cuff Links. This is a simple build and can be made very easily with limited tools! It contains Mitre joints and a cushioned bottom to protect the Jewellery. Please see the full video build on my YouTube channel to see...
  2. Watches

    I have made several of these for gifts. They are watches made out of left over wood scraps. The straps on these two are cut from blocks of walnut. A bit time consuming, but they make great gifts. The design allows them to hang on a wall, or fold up the strap and it functions as a stand for use...
  3. Watch Box

    I drew my brother for our Christmas gift exchange this year and decided to make him a watch box. It is made out of pine and finished with amber shellac and paste wax. This was the first time I have tried this finish and also the first time I was able to use my new (to me) Record 43 plow plane. I...
  4. Solar-Ready Walnut Watch Box

    Most of my watches live in a drawer but I recently added a solar-powered Citizen to my collection. Rather than leaving it sit out in a window, I gave it a box with a plexiglas top so it can stay charged and protected from dust. Construction was simple, using some figured claro walnut for the...
  5. Wall hung clock

    This is one of my first projects. Made from Oak and Walnut. Clock is approx. 15" long and can hang on a wall or fold up to sit on a desk. Takes some time but well worth it.
  6. Jumbo Watch

    I needed a clock in my office at work. I guess I could have just asked for those cheap plastic ones that you see everywhere. But I wanted to make something, so I took some scraps of maple and walnut that was laying around and attempted to make this watch that I had seen on this site before. I am...
  7. Men's Wooden Clock

    Men's wooden watch How do you make look at my channel.
  8. Mainspring Winder Stand

    These days projects for a limited workshop and free time are just the ticket. I decided it is time to start making a few things for myself so this will be the first in a series of such projects. This tool is designed to be held in a bench vise and has been laying on a shelf since I bought it...
  9. Compact Watch Boxes (Prototypes)

    I wanted to try and make watch boxes that were as compact as possible while being able to fit even larger watches. My first prototype was made from pine and it was a bit larger and taller than it needed to be. My second try was making these few boxes, and lining the compartments with felt. All...
  10. Watch case

    This box is actually designed around a piece of glass, the bevelled glass in the top was originally for the grandfather clock I made in 1999 that came in the wrong size, I have one left. Lesson learned - throw nothing away. The box itself is made from some gnarly beech that came from the front...
  11. Custom wristwatch #1

    This special little project is finally done. It's my first ever watch case made from Hawaiian Koa and a tiny piece of curly Myrtle. I spent about 30 hours on it and enjoyed the challenge. It took a lot of my skills as a drafter and machinist to make it precisely without any help from a CNC...
  12. Long Overdue Watch Box

    Greetings fellow LJ friends. It's been awhile since I have last posted anything. Back issues/surgeries have kept me out of the shop, however I pushed through ongoing issues and prevailed. I have a buddy that is more of a brother than buddy. He asked me quite awhile ago if I could make hime a...
  13. Time in a box

    Recently finished… Finally, a nice home for some of my watches. I do not see many of these on LJ so thought I would share, and maybe inspire someone else who is interested in new and/or vintage watches. I am still in the process of making custom cushions for the watches - so the ones...
  14. Lathe Base (Removing warp and repair of damage.)

    This is a Swiss watchmaker's lathe (Note: Not a jeweler's lathe) from about 1880. The lathe itself still needs a little cleaning up as the compound is all gummed up with dirt and grease. I do not intend to polish the thing within an inch of it's life, but will clean the dirt and light surface...
  15. Wall Clock/Desk Clock (or watch?)

    This was copied this from a picture in a magazine. I used toothpicks for the hinge pins. (to give it some perspective, that's a 4" clock insert)
  16. Padauk & Curly Maple Watch Box

    This is a comissioned piece for a friends husband for Christmas. Just finished it last week….... Padauk & Curly Maple with Curly Maple dividers. Lined with Ultra Suede. 13×9 x 4.5 and finished in my usual Watco Danish and Black Bison Wax.
  17. "Autumn Sunset" a sculpted Watch Box

    This is a commissioned box to hold 8 wrist watches. It is bloodwood with a triptych panel of figured western maple bordered with wenge. The splines are wenge and maple. The handle is black palm. The dividers are maple with leopard wood caps. The finish is lacquer. The bottom is lined with black...
  18. Build a cherry watch box (VIDEO)

    I documented this build on my YouTube channel: Watches should be displayed, not stored. I have 4 watches so far in my relatively short life and needed a solution to get them off of the pegs on my closet wall. I made this watch box out of cherry I used a dovetail style drawer lock joint to...
  19. Watch Box

    Granddaughter said her husband needed a watch box as he collects a few watches. Had to look it up on internet to see designs as I had never seen one. Designs ranged from simple to really exotic. I made a jig for 3/4" box joints and made the box from pine. Watch supports are made from cherry...
