The six little drawers have maple fronts with walnut pulls. The pulls are actually a walnut front with an oval routed out of the center. The oval is routed first from the back with a 1/2” bit, then from the front with a 1/4” bit. That makes a nice little finger grab pull. I had to create a template for this oval.
There are the strips for the latest two end grain boards I’ve been working on. Craft show season is upon us again, and my wife and I are tooling up for a big push now that the weather is nice enough that I can get out in the shop without frostbite setting in. I’ve been cranking out a bunch of smaller boards, plus a few of what I consider average size… roughly 10×12x1.25” or so… I’ve done ‘enough’ simple boards now that it has ...
Actually at this posting, both sides of the blank, ears, back of the head/neck are drawn, and I have drawn in part of the top, and have begun carving a little too…..just figured I save you guys the extra post! I will put up what I carved so far tomorrow, then back to the Sawcliffe Green man for a day or two.
Making some larger (these are about 10” high, 7” wide & 5” deep) band saw boxes for sisters-in-law + extra for the gallery.

I did a full top to bottom cut for that purpose since I find I can get a tighter fit when gluing it back. I’ve had people ask how do you cut those things (especially with the segmented dr...
Further shaping of the face. Drew in new sections to be cut in…. Carved in features. The face is finally beginning to show!
I decided to build, what I think is, a nice jewelry case for my Niece’s birthday this summer. The case is Walnut with Bird’s Eye Maple for drawers and accents. There are some secondary 1/8” panels that will be either Baltic Birch or hardboard. Plans are from an older issue of Wood magazine. Here’s what it should look like when complete: Yesterday I cut everything but the hardboard to rough size. Then I dadoed out 10 tiny rails and stiles for half lap ...
Working into the basic shapes of the top of the muzzle heading down it’s sides, and into the forehead towards the top of the head….
In this video I build two business card holders for the desks of a friend. http://youtu.be/u3FiXXFPXOY
Almost got this box about sized up. Some tweaking at the corners, maybe. Time to add a bottom? Needs a groove made in the sides of the box, so A Plough plane to cut some 1/4” by 1/4” grooves. Plane just MIGHT be a tad older than me? I had a piece of pine scrap, almost the right sizes for the box. needed a rebate around the edges, though So, a Wards #78 set to take a bit of the top, er, bottom of the panel. Seems I had the panel a might too smooth and shiny. ...
