Here are three projects that I only have one picture of. The first is a jewelry chest I made for Carleen about 17 years ago. I was going to build a small one and was informed that it took a lot . The wood is salvagedfrom a red oak grain cleaner and re-sawn to 5/8 the contruction is mostly dovetails
The second photo is the door on our bathroom. Carleen wanted something special. I had these 1 1/4 pine boards so I glued them up and put on a “Z” brace. each one of the plugs conceals a screw. When I got done I had the perfect outhouse door. I looked over and there was my branding iron. How could a buckaroo resist? It will carry our brand for ever.
The third project is a small round table like a Shaker candle stand but a little more ornate.The top is the cut-out from our bathroom vanity. I just couldn’t see it go to waste. So, turned a spinle and made some legs.These were all fun projects.

Thos, you have a very creative mind and the skills to match. Very nice. Particularly like the Jewelry Case, because I just love small wooden boxes!

Beautiful work, pardner! Maybe I will be able to make something close to your skill before I die. I, too, do some leatherwork. Do you have some projects that combine them? I am still getting my shop organized after a recent move, but once I get it set up and organized, i want to carve some leather and incorporate it into some wood pieces.
(P.S. I like the brand…. what else is a buckeroo to do?)

God Bless,

I’m sorry I missed this one earlier, but it came up on the home page.

I thought it’d be nice to revive it.

I really like all of your creations.

This was posted before I came on board but I am glad it came up on my list. These are nice projects and I enjoy the stories behind them as well. Putting your brand on the door was a very creative idea.

Thanks for the post.
