  1. Clock and Pencil Holder (Wood Whisperer Designs)

    Here are a couple projects I made that were obviously inspired by the Wood Whisperer website. Along with the cutting board I also posted this morning, I think it's pretty clear that I bought a length of maple and a length of purpleheart and have been using that for projects before allowing...
  2. Walnut Entertainment Center

    So it appears I've gone retro. lol. This little entertainment center is designed for a future video to be released by FineWoodworking.com. The goal was to create a piece of furniture that anyone can build with a very modest set of tools. I got through the entire project with a Porter Cable...
  3. Floating Shelves, Walnut Slab Desk, and Solid Walnut Tray Ceiling for a Cloffice

    This was such a fun project, It took a lot of things I have been meaning to do and consolidated them into on small fun, easy to manage project. Walnut tray ceiling, Wood Whisperer, Inspired shelves, and live edge walnut slab desk. Oh did I mention it allowed me to stop doing work at the...
  4. Another end grain cutting board (3 woods)

    Made these two for my sister while she was here visiting last summer. Woods are wenge, maple and jarrah. Design was a bit of a f*#& up. Finished with a combination of mineral oil and beeswax.
  5. John Hall Mirror Frames

    When I look for ideas for common wood projects, I often scan through images to find elements I like. For frames, I've always paused on images of the "famous" John Hall frame from the Gamble House. Typical Greene & Greene styling. The plans I used were directly from the Wood Whisperer's website...
  6. Quilted Maple and Black Walnut Jewelry Box

    High school graduation present for our youngest daughter. Our second valedictorian…not proud at all. The woodwhisperer, Marc Spagnuolo, designed the jewelry box. He and Brian Benham provided the plans that made this project viable. I recommend their plans and videos highly. I watched several of...
  7. Wood Whisperer cutting board

    I'm pretty sure there is a law somewhere that says all woodworkers must complete one of these cutting boards so I thought I'd better get it done! I was a fun but difficult project for me due to my current tools in the workshop. I do not have a table saw, jointer or a planer, so I had to rip...
  8. Shaker table with bluestone tiles

    I built this table using (mostly) the Wood Whisperer plans, with the obvious exception of the top. My mom had brought back some bluestone tiles from a trip and asked me to make her a table with them. Of course I always do what my mom wants. It's cherry throughout, except under the tiles in...
  9. Wood Whisperer Cutting Board

    The image of this cutting board on my kitchen counter all ready to cut up some tomatoes are the result of a fairly long road. I just got back into wood working this April after spending most of March insulating my garage to get ready for a shop. Like many I found The Wood Whisperer web site and...
  10. Wood Whisperer Clock - Mexican Parota

    A friend came back from Mexico with a chunk of Mexican Parota. I was stumped for a birthday gift for my mom's 70th because she doesn't need or want anything. I decided to use the Mexican Parota to make a Wood Whisperer clock. I used birch for the turned dowels, splines and the central part that...
  11. Quilt Block Keepsake Box

    I built this project from plans in a magazine. It's made of red oak, walnut and maple. Five or six thin layers of clear lacquer finish brought out incredibly rich color in the wood. The red oak is from a tree that lived in the back yard, but lost a battle with a snow storm four years ago...

  12. Brother's X-mas Gift...yet another WW cutting board

    My brother Lyles is a hard-corps barbecue cook. In fact he competes in those outdoor barbecue cook-off shindigs. So, I thought a cutting board would be an appropriate gift. This is of coarse a Marc Spag design made of hard maple and purpleheart. I found that both of these species burned...
  13. End grain cutting boards (with special mistakes)

    I just had to get in on the act and make a few of these for gifts. It was not as easy as I thought it would be. The first one I made (which has seen a month of use now and is the faded one in the top left of the first picture) is lacking a bit of glue because I took so long with the glue up...
  14. Shaker table - walnut

    I picked up a load of walnut from fellow LJ, JoeBama a good while back and made this shaker table following Marc Spagnolo's (The Woodwhisperer) design. It's nearly a year old and I'm finally getting around to posting photos.
  15. quick and dirty thein seperator

    I used PVC pipe for the connection to the table saw and a port that came out of the harbor freight dust collector accessory kit for the connection to the dust collector. I used hot glue to secure them to the trash can. Being lazy I just used 3 wires to hang the baffle. It works great...
  16. Salt Cellar

    This is a salt cellar based on the wood whisperer's video. this was a fun and easy project. I had a stack of 4/4 cherry cutoffs all 10" long so I glued them together in a big stack. I used a 3-1/8" forstner bit to drill the holes, much easier than all the routing. I glued a dowel in the bottom...
  17. Keepsake Boxes

    I'm going to take a quick second to post a few of my Christmas projects. I don't know if any you are familiar with Marc's Keepsake Box project over at the Wood Whisperer. Here are my versions. The premise is a box with a secret locking pin that secures the lid. When the pin is removed, the...
  18. Wood Whisperer Greene & Greene mirror

    This mirror frame was made from the template provided by Marc Spagnuolo. They were great and allowed me to practice on some new skills. The mirror is not perfect but I did learn a lot. It is made from Kauri wood and that was nice to work with. It is finished with just an oil rub. Thanks for...
  19. End Grain Cutting Board

    End grain cutting boards. Walnut and Maple.
  20. End Grain Cutting Board

    Nothing crazy, it's the cutting board featured by The Wood Whisperer. Quick and fun. Walnut and maple ordered from Bell Forrest.
