  1. Solid Walnut Bible Box

    This is one of our classic bible boxes - done in solid walnut with a dogwood interlaced carving on the front panel. Very simple with wooden hinges. American black walnut. We make a few of these type boxes a year between other big projects. Last photo is a strait angle - different box but...

  4. A Simple Box

    Here it is… the latest box… This box was a disjointed, near-year in the making, and filled with not a few "throw it in the air, and see if it flies" ideas. The sides were cut on the band-saw I no longer have, as an experiment in re-sawing. The piece that I cut, an old cribbing block, had so many...
  5. Bubinga, African Mahogany, and Wenge box with wooden hinges

    Here is a box with wooden hinges made from three African woods (Bubinga, African Mahogany shelf, and Wenge mitered "outlay" on the top). Great fun figuring these out! I started by making the wooden hinges and then decided to make a box on which I could use them. The box became a special gift to...
  6. Arnie's Tea Box

    This is a tea box that I built for my sailing friend Arnie. He was a career navy sailor before retirement and spent time in Canada's sailing embassador "Oriole". He has also done considerable offshore sailing on his own so the theme of the box is fitting. And oh yes, he's a tea drinker. One of...
  7. Prehistoric Bible Box

    I've been wanting to build a box for our family bible for quite some time but have been lacking the inspiration. Eventually the creative juices started flowing again and this is the results. The lid of the box and feet are made from Mammoth Kauri (what better for a bible box than an ancient...

    This Is my very first finger joint box, I made this box using the MLSC Multi Joint System on the router, 3/8" fingers this was a trial and error box also a prototype to the URN project I just recently posted, I wanted to make sure I got the Urn right with correct dimensions so I had started...
  9. White Oak Pallet Box

    Dimensions: 12×7x4". Finish: shellac and wax. Not a lot here but I sawed up some pallet wood when I was trying my new resaw blade out and liked the sapwood/live edge so another box happened. The whole box is from a single oak runner including the 'Patron' hinges.
  10. Wooden box; ziricote, zebra wood, blood wood, brass; handmade hinges

    Something for my mom. The white wood in the splines are white ebony. I didn't want to have to make those "stability bars" out of Zebrawood on the inside of the lid, but the piece of bloodwood I was working with was particularly unruly. The hinges are simple enough by design, but it helps to...
  11. Blanket chest in English elm

    I made this five or six years ago and it originally stood at the foot of our bed until we became sick of lacerated legs in the middle of the night. I'd had the piece of burr elm for some years waiting for the right job to come along and I added a piece along the back edge to improve the lid...
  12. Thinnest Wooden Hinges Yet

    I glued up some end grain blanks of Jatoba, walnut, zebra wood,poplar, maple and decided to see how thin I could do the Shipwright hinges. Box is Jatoba and American sycamore with 'no glue' box joints. Top is end grain sanded to 600 grit. Hinges are 1/4" mahogany. Finish is BLO and Renissance...
  13. Oklahoma Elm Twins

    I sawed up an elm log from one of my clients pastures and the first slice cupped/warped badly. When I got it flat it was only a 1/2" thick so these boxes resulted. Dimensions: 9 1/2×5x2 3/4",walnut dovetail splines, finished with Deft semi-gloss rattle can lacquer. Shipwright/Yorkshire Stewart...

    Here is the finished project that started with a pair of doors… The frames are Narra… [New Guinea Rosewood] with Queensland Maple for the panels and carcass… the wooden hinges are made from Tasmanian Blackwood. The unit will be mounted to the wall using a french cleat…
  15. Jatoba and Zebrawood With Wooden Hinges

    Jatoba, Zebrawood, Maple splines. Dimensions: 12×7x4 1/2". Finish: BLO, shellac, Renissance wax. Patron hinges. This is some of the zebrawood I was charged $25.50 a BF because it was 'highly figured'. They neglected to mention the crack that went clear through the board. Did my best to hide it...
  16. Walnut, Maple, Wooden Hinges

    Walnut, birdseye maple. Dimensions:12×7x4 1/2". Finish: BLO, shellac, Renissance Wax. Patron hinges. The beautiful burled walnut came from a local stair shop that was closing ($2 a BF). The 'highly figured' birdseye was an intrenet rip off for $25.50 a BF. And included the dark pith that ran...
  17. Zebrawood and Maple

    Second attempt to post this :( Soft maple and zebrawood. Dimensions: 12 1/2×8 1/2×5". Joinery was half laps and pinned half laps for the panels and splined miters for the corners. The panels are trapped by dados rather than being rabbitted like my previous panel boxes. Pins and all miter keys...
  18. For a Proud Wolverine...

    This was a commissioned project, a Thank You Gift from a Friend to her Employer (a Proud University of Michigan Graduate) for all that he has done for her… It was requested to be in the form of a "Treasure Chest", with a curved top… The idea of a chest put me in mind of Steamer Trunks and the...
  19. Waste Not,Want Not

    Sometimes I do stuff just because I think I can. I had some strips of sycamore and some thin resawed walnut all of which were too small to be useful so I glued up lots of pieces and made this box. And then I took the leftovers from this box and made the cross. When I was finished the resultant...
