  1. Labor Day Weekend Dock Project

    This was really more of a carpentry project, but it met the criteria for posting. This dock replaces the old, basic dock that had rotted away and posed a danger. Dimensions are a large 16' x 12' with a 2ft cantilever over the water. The two outer corners were cropped to 45 degrees. I found a...
  2. Bayou Gator

    This project is a custom order. I have never done a gator before so it was interesting. The picture itself is made of 5/8" Walnut. It is 15" long and just right at 12" tall at the top of the bark, with the base. Live edges on the top. I also modified the pattern as I wanted to keep the...
  3. Headphone box

    Made this box to store my headphones in. Made out of hard maple and black walnut. This was the first time I used box joints and they turned out fairly well.

  4. Curly Claro Walnut Bowl

    Hand carved curly claro walnut bowl. Tools used- Lancelot chainsaw disc, S.J. Addis gouges and Marples chisels. It does have some turquoise stones inlayed in a couple natural voids. Kinda wish I would have waited on some crushed turquoise powder. Its roughly 9 5/8" diameter and 2 7/8" tall...
  5. Little Bridge for A Customer's Pond

    A lady asked me to replace her old "bridge" with a new one. The old one had a ridiculous arch in it that cause many people to slip and fall if it was even slightly wet. I wish I had taken a picture of it. I put three 2×4's underneath and tapered them at the ends to meet the ground. I am always...
  6. Dog Bowl - Feeding Station

    So not only is this my first woodworking project, but also my first posting on LJs! This is a feeding station for my sister and her husband's black lab. They were using some old mixing bowls for his food/water bowls and were looking for something to neatly store some dog food and remove the...
  7. Arts & Crafts Coat/Hall Tree

    One of my earlier pieces. It's a relatively simple design that I made up myself. Red oak stained with Minwax water-based Vermont Maple, as that was the closest and easiest finish I could find that matched my idea of what Arts & Crafts furniture should look like. An attitude that is still...
  8. We make the Reddit logo on a wood lathe turning. Material of bog oak

    Hello. Today I decided to make the Reddit logo on the wood-turning
  9. Dog Food/Water Station

    Here's the dog's new feeding station. The top is walnut & the sides & legs are soft maple. The sides & legs were joined with the Dowelmax and the top is set with figure-eight fasteners. Finally, the whole thing was finished with a number of coats of wipe on varnish. The is the first of many...
  10. Sharpening Station

    Here is my chisel and plane blade sharpening station. It holds a water stone and my diamond stone along with this, it has two stops for plane blades 25 and 30 degree and three stops for my chisels 25, 30 and 35. I use these in conjunction with a sharpening guide. I got this idea i think from...
  11. Now THAT's A BOX!

    For those familiar with Shaker box sizes from John Wilson, this is a size #17 box. I spent a week with John in Charlotte, MI in April. Bending this box is definitely a two man job. We bent three of these beauties. The box measures 32" x 24" x 12". The band is curly cherry; top is curly...
  12. Wave Sculpture #10

    Wave Sculpture #10 is a wall sculpture that captures the wave ripple motion so often found in nature. The waves are carved in artist quality Baltic birch plywood. The carving reveals the individual plywood layers resulting in a striking pattern of light and dark. The carving is approximately...
  13. "Grace"

    Since creating the last hood ornament mount I have become hooked! Taking something from the past and making it come alive is addictive. "Grace" is the newest piece. It is a 1942-50 Packard hood ornament. You can call it a swan but after some research it was claimed to be a cormorant (I still...
  14. Little Wooden Skiff

    About two years ago I built this little skiff to retrieve my RC Tiger Moth plane if it went down in the pond in our back yard. It's the first time I built a boat and it wasn't all that difficult. There's a sheet of styrofoam under the flag to keep her floating if you were to get into trouble...
  15. Alder Dresser

    Wife wanted a new dresser/TV stand for the bedroom and wanted it in Alder. The original plan was to distress it, but she changed her mind and we ended with this. Also made the jump to all water based finishes. This was a "custom" blend of WB dye stain with WB poly topcoat.
  16. 7x lumberjocking: hot tub, deck, swings, arbor, firepit, birdhouse, hammock swing

    This is my latest woodworking project :) Had an "unloved" corner in our small garden, therefore we decided to turn it into a quiet relaxation spot. Minimum square feet - maximum use. Basicly all the necessary tools were: a handsaw, a pencil and a spirit level. Wood is treated pine. Photos...
  17. Steampunk Clepsydra Clock

    Yes, this is a wood project, although in finished form it is hard to tell. I applied faux distressed metal finishes to the wood parts. This is my steampunk clepsydra ("water thief") clock. A steady stream of water fills a chamber, and a siphon periodically drains it. This action moves a float...
  18. Ebonized Maple Desk

    Here's a desk that I made for my oldest daughter a couple years back. the desk is an original design nothing to fancy other than it was my first attempt at ebonizing maple. I think it turned out OK color was fairly consistent throughout the piece. I used ebony dye as a base and Minwax ebony...
  19. Crib

    This is a Crib that I built for my daughter. It is a convertible crib that converts to a toddler bed and then into a headboard for a full size bed. The lumber is Ambrosia Cherry, which is actually Ambrosia Maple that has been processed to give a pinkish color. It has a coat of Minwax Red...
