  1. Swiss Army Knife Replacement Scales

    My son needed new scales for his Swiss Army "Tinkerer" model I think. It's the one with the Phillips screwdriver. The old red scales completely bit the dust. He wanted "dark" or "black" wood so I used Zircote, dark, hard, and very oily. Used a cross-slide vise to cut the groove for the tweezers...
  2. Sofa Table with Granite Insert

    I was selected to build a Mission style sofa table with some granite scraps from the clients kitchen. I used elements of Mission furniture such as through tenons, side slats, shelf, similar dimensions, and corbels, but that is where the similarities end. The top and shelf are cherry with...
  3. dovetail saw

    Made a dovetail saw from some Blackburn supplies. Started with a template I liked and transferred it to a piece of Zircote that I resawed to 7/8" Coped down to the line I could lie and say I used nothing but rasps but, in honesty, I used a die grinder with rasp bits mostly. And...
  4. Craftsman Bookcase with Accents

    This project was from Woodsmith. I added the Greene & Greene style plugs and drawer pull. The project is made from Sapele with the legs made from Pommel Sapele. The 1/2" plugs are Kingwood, the 1/4" plugs are Gaboon Ebony and the drawer pull blocks are Zircote. This was a very challenging...
  5. Box With Hidden Compartment

    Tony: After seeing your series of boxes with compartments to hide valuables, I thought I'd make my own. A box with a compartment accessed from the bottom where one can hide valuables: Picture frame turn buttons secure the treasure so it will be kept hidden and safe, out of sight from late...
  6. cutting board makeover #1

    I went by a church rummage sale last weekend and came accross two old lonely walnut cutting boards for one dollar each(10×10 x 2 end grain & 12×20 x 1-1/4 face grain), so I bought them for a makeover. After sanding the cut marks, I cut 3/8 deep dados and inserted strips of zircote and rotated 90...
  7. 3 Fountain Pens (my first sold projects!) and a Pencil

    I finished up these 3 fountain pens for a friend today. My first sold pieces! They are zircote, walnut and rosewood. I tried really hard to make sure that when the cap was screwed to the top that the grain lines would match up, but then I forgot to line up the clip and the nib, worked out on...

  9. Got Band-Aids? Porcupine Wood ‘N Pencil Holders

    The variety of color, texture, smell and figure in wood never ceases to amaze me. Many woods are so beautiful I can just stare at the grain for hours. Some I love to sand just to have a pleasant scent wafting through the air. And other woods beckon to be touched and worked. I wanted a sort of...
  10. Pens

    Here are a few of the many pens that I have done. The first is Penn State Majestic Gold/Platinum Rollerball done in Zircote. It was sanded to 12000 grit with micro mesh and finished with Myland Friction Polish and carnauba wax. The second is a Craft Supply Jr Gentlemens II Rhodium Rollerball...

  12. Busy weekend making pens!

    First pic is of a pen and pencil set that I did for a Habitat for Humanity fund raiser using dyed plywood. Pretty straight forward, except the pencil nib was all messed up. Thankfully I just bought a punch set on Friday so I was able to recover the pressed pieces and try numerous times! The...
  13. By the Sea

    The Ziricote panel reminded me of our coastline, hence the name. The body is wenge and the accents are maple and bloodwood. The hande is Ziricote. The finish is Deft spray lacquer, semi-gloss. The liner is red leatherette fabric. I tried out several ideas that have been on my mind for awhile...
  14. "Tuxedo" a Palm Box

    Another little box using scraps. It looks so formal, hence the name. The lid was made from a punky piece of zircote that was definitely past the " Best if used by" date on the label, but I new I would find a way to use some of it in time. I had to rebuild a few areas with CA but its a...
  15. Zircote pen from my son

    My son and I made this, since he did the majority of the work, I gave him the option to keep it or give it to someone…..lucky me I get to take it to work. I think he learned alot from this project. The wood is zircote with a CA finish. Thanks for looking. Robert
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hi there, We recently knocked down our half wall running up the stairs and stripped the steps of all the carpet. We bought the premade solid oak treads and all additional oak components (spindles, banister etc) from Home Depot. We wanted the white risers so we cut them ourselves and painted...
