    A friend and fellow turner gave me a rough turned blank that had been sitting around since 2004, It was about 1" thick and warped. A cool inclusion in the wood that looks like the moon and some slight spalting. . Its 8" x 3".
  2. Log Bed made from Yellow Birch with scribed joints

    Bed has been finished for some time and I guess now its time to post some pic's of the finished assembly. You can follow the process here on my blog series http://lumberjocks.com/CampD/blog/21161. I wanted to post a pic of it in its finial resting spot but we haven't quite decided yet on a new...

    Laminated yellow birch rolling pin. Finished with hut wax. Simple little project for a day when there wasn't much shop time. Thanks for looking.
  4. Spalted Yellow Birch Shaker Wall Cabinet

    7 years in the making. Cutting the tree, letting it sit while the horses chewed on it for a few years, milling, air drying, kiln drying, resawing, planing, etc. Mortise and tenon and dovetail work with book match door panel. Hinges are off for finishing. Just getting to the point where I am...
  5. Small Dining Room Table

    Finally getting to the dining room table I've wanted to make after long term remodeling of our house. The dining area is small. The table is 36" x 44". It replaces an old colonial set (still have to use the old chairs pictured until we get new ones). The wood is yellow birch. I'd never worked...
  6. Cross

    Just a simple cross I designed years ago for my first communion students. This cross is made of yellow birch wrapped in cherry quarter banding. The 1/8" inlaid strips are walnut. This cross is 3/4" thick. The banding stands 1/8" proud of the face, giving a tiered look.
  7. "Honey, can you make a..."

    Debbie's Granddaughter's Birthday is next week and I was asked last week whether I could make a box for the occasion… Those of you who know me, know how little prodding I need to make a Box! When I bought some lumber last February, one of the pieces was a small bit of Sapele… The Piece sat...
  8. Convertible Changing Table & bonus chair table

    A new grandchild (girl) arriving in about six weeks. My oldest daughter this time. Her first. I decided to put together a changing table that can be converted to a dresser later on. It's made of yellow birch. I made a kitchen table awhile back with it and found out I like the way it works and...
  9. TV table with Wings! (kinda)

    We have a couple of gliders in front of our 60" Sony. We sometimes like to take dinner there while watching a good movie. We manage on hassocks and small tables. Not the best. I decided to make a divider table between the chairs with built in tv tables. They flip up for use and down when we want...
  10. Spinner Crank Bait

    It's been awhile since I made a fishing lure. I've been getting back to furniture and completed 4-5 pieces lately. But I figured I wanted to do something that could be completed in a few hours instead of a few days. So, back to carve and paint a fishing lure. This one is a spinner crank bait...
  11. First Furniture Project

    These Shaker-style night tables are my first attempt at building furniture. They are made from yellow birch. I based them on a slightly larger table that I once bought as a kit. I also used the book How to Build Shaker Furniture by Thos. Moser. I finished the tables with three applications of...
  12. North Dakota Shaped Cribbage Board

    This is my first kind of show worthy project. A lot of learning on this project. It is made of 6/4 rough cut yellow birch and 1/4 yellow birch back. My brother asked me for a cribbage board in the shape of North Dakota for Christmas (our home state, good thing we didn't come from Alaska!). I...
  13. Office Corner Shelf

    My dad was moving into a new office and wanted a corner shelf to go above his desk. I got a hold of some curly yellow birch with a cool grain to it so I thought I'd use that. Unfortunately I only had my phone camera when I was in there so the pictures aren't the greatest. This project was a...
  14. Adjustable Trivets

    LumberJocks Toughcut and Lazyman posted expandable trivet projects that caught my eye, so I decided to turn out a few to see how they would sell at an upcoming craft show. These are made from Red Oak and Yellow Birch. I cut the segments from 1/2" stock milled to 1" wide. Each segment is 6" in...
  15. North Dakota Cribbage Board II

    I made this cribbage board for a friend who wanted it for his father for Christmas (the county outlined is where he lives, the other line is the Missouri River). It is made out of yellow birch and some miscellaneous 1/4 ply that I had lying around. I changed the way that the cards and pegs are...
  16. Birch boxes - from firewood logs

    I made these boxes as a recent tribute to the passing of my wife's grandfather. The three boxes were each given to his kids, my wife's father, aunt, and uncle. I wanted to create something special for each of them to help remember him by. They were gifted to them yesterday on a special day to...
  17. Step Stool

    Step stool for my grandson so he can get up to the sink and wash his hands (he will be two in a few days). I used Yellow Birch, finished with Minwax Antique Oil
  18. Huge lumber Rack

    I have been needing to get my lumber in one place for a while now. I've had lumber stored in so many places around my shop for a long time. Now I have a large cart that holds a ton. I posted a video on YouTube about it, check out how I built it! Here is my post on my website...
  19. Ba-da-bing, the Bubinga Box

    The latest box, a Bubinga sided and Yellow Birch paneled effort… (The "Hardware" is also YB) It measured out at 10.5" X 7.25" X 4.75"... Taking photos of this convinced me of my need to make a Light Tent… I tried three times with three different backgrounds, and still couldn't do justice to...
  20. Cutting Board (first attempt)

    Here is my first attempt at an end grain cutting board. I did it as a supplemental wedding gift for a good friend of mine. I used some cut offs I had that I thought came together well. Yellow birch, and walnut are the two I remember. I don't recall the third species that was used. I have a...
