  1. bread knives

    I had fun making these but didn't really need all of them. I took them to the office and they sold like hotcakes. I really like working with different wood species. These small projects give me the opportunity without much cost.
  2. Frames that started as a box

    Originally, I'd planned on making a veneered box after reading, "A Box That Earns Its Stripes" Fine Woodworking #207. After seeing how incredibly complex it would be, I lost steam and aborted the mission! I ended up making 16 4" x 6" frames with the veneered strips that I'd cut. I've...
  3. Accent Table

    Small accent table made from random leftovers. I used red & yellow heartwoods for top & sycamore branches for legs. Since I was using up some leftover woods, once I had it assembled, I didn't feel like the top & legs matched at all. So, I used a Dremel & carved the spirals around the legs &...
  4. New from My Shop

    Another batch of monikers has found happy new homes. The first is Yellowheart with a Purpleheart musical note. Following that, in order, Cocobolo, Purpleheart, Madrone, Cherry and lastly, a Paduak MiniTag. Done on an old Sears bandsaw with an 1/8" blade. These are fun to do and everyone loves...
  5. Intarsia Dragon (SPYRO)

    I asked my daughter to search the web for what she wanted me to make her and she picked out this pattern. It was purchased off eBay from kbennett702. It intimidated me, but once I got started… it wasn't so bad. Had to redraw some of it and improvise some pieces. She asked that I not use the...
  6. Small Box for picks

    Here is the box I made as a gift for Christmas '07. She stores her guitar picks in it? The pick in the shots for sizing. This project started as a hand plane. Purple Heart, Yellow Heart, Cedar and high dollar hinges. Hinges cost $30.00 but they were the only ones I could find that would do what...
  7. My first Lumberjocks Posting - Desk Clock

    A Purple Heart, Yellow Heart diamond shaped Desk Clock with a Walnut structure. A first coat of spar varnish, followed by clear coats of polyuthethane. The clock is not attached to the base, it is "balanced" there on a clean cut 45 degree edge. I probably should have used my small paint...
  8. Canvas Photo Frame

  9. Customized Biplane

    This biplane is a 5th birthday gift for my daughter. The dark Purpleheart body plays nicely off of the Yellowheart wings and propeller. The butterfly inlay is made with Mahogany, Birch & Ebony and, with the color scheme, helps add a very feminine feel to an otherwise very boy-oriented toy. The...

  13. Design by Music

    I was asked by a woman to design a Cheese/Breadboard to the music of the band "Train" and this is what I came up with. Their music is honest, deep and some references to space, so the Black Walnut reminds me of the solar system and the different colors of the type of music in their songs. It is...
  14. Pencil Boxes

    Sliding lid pencil boxes for my brother's kids…made from 1/4" stock. 8yr old Zach is a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan. I've been wanting to make him a Yellowheart and Ebony box for a long time…this was my chance! 5yr old Mia gets the Purpleheart and maple box. Almost 2yr old Nate gets Pauduk...
  15. Kat's Meow

    I previously posted "Kat's Kase", which is a pen case I built for a friend in Montreal. This is the second project I have completed specially for my friend. She had commented last summer that she had never had a jewelry box before. So, I set out on this project as soon as I finished the pen...

  18. Clean or Dirty? Dishwasher Sign-Hand Carved

    Here is a project that I made for our new washing machine. I took a piece of quarter inch yellowheart and made transferred a clean/dirty design onto it. Then I carved out the letters and used a shallow gouge to chamfer the edge a little. The letters were fairly small, so I used a toothpick to...
  19. Bandsaw Boxes

    This 4-drawer box was a magazine project, and my first bandsaw box. It was made from a cut-off of a solid piece of construction grade Cedar that I had intended to discard. I'm glad I didn't. I didn't realize what an interesting grain there was on the box side (as shown unfinished in another...
