  1. "No Privacy" cherry tea cabinet, wall cabinet

    This is a tea cabinet I made on a whim. It's very whimsical lol. I was going for a sunburst effect with the ash slats on the front. Light in the middle, darkening towards the outside. Lots of detailed handwork in this project (my dovetails are getting tighter, which makes me happy). It was a lot...

  4. Calvin

    I named this after my old boss who unfortunately passed away suddenly back in 2004. He was a good and highly skilled man but with some rather interesting peculiarities. One of which was this similar expression often found on his face. Only thing missing is the cigar in his teeth and a pair of...

  9. See, Guys Can Wrap Presents

    Custom boxes for bottles of wine I bought for my wife (I know nothing about wine, Tokay is good stuff, isn't it? Or should I have gone two dollars more and gone for the Boonsefarm?). It only took fifty years of perfecting my woodworking abilities, and an investment of about 40 K in tools and...

  11. Cat in a row boat (automata)

    This is my entry for "A Knot Like No Other". It is made from a piece of figured almond that had a large elongated knot smack in the center of the board and it angled down in the piece of wood so that if I wanted to make the handle and shaft of one solid piece, the handle was not going to lay at...
  13. Outhouse for little people

    My Mother has a nice back yard, but it has an ugly old well casing sticking up in the middle of it. I couldn't stand it any more. I browsed the internet for ideas, squished them all together and came up with this. It is 14" square at the base and about four feet tall. My plans consisted of a...

    This is the eighth lamp that I have made and I wanted this one to be whimsical.

Next I built a humorous, near impossible, access to the top with ladders and platforms. On...
