Two Removable Trays

This one is made from red oak, red cedar, and walnut
Oak lid, walnut midsection and trays, red cedar base. 
Fully exploded view. The walnut is really a twisted grain piece. Looks really nice with color changes and dramatic direction changes in grain.

Tray one installed.
Tray two installed also creating lip for lid.
I can make you something similar with your own layout, or you can have this one.
Thank you for looking. -Bill

The Predator Collection

These boxes are made from Red oak, black walnut, and Cherry.
Oak is the base and lid, black walnut is the lip in between the two halves. Cherry is the removable tray that also serves as the containment for the lid itself.

Lily Pad lotus flower

This is made from Walnut
Finished with water based urethane,
Have a design in mind? Perhaps something hidden in plain site. Lets share your ideas and get it made.

Red Cedar and Walnut

I posted some images a while back of this one in process. here is how it looks today. Natural in color finished with oil based urethane.
I love doing multiple species items.

The grain on the red cedar look so nice.
Contact me please with your ideas at
Thank you. -Bill

Hand carved look Magazine Box

This was designed originally to hold a full size pistol Mag and look unassuming on your desk.
I did not hand carve it however I programmed it to look like it was.

This particular one is made from Walnut, but can be any wood, and with any kind of artwork on the box you like.
Drop me a message at and lets come up with a design for you.
Thank you, -Bill

Repurposed Stair Tread

These boxes will hold a ring, or a couple small things. It was machined from an old stair tread that was being discarded. I though I would see if we can get something from it. It is old wood that machined...., well like old wood. I would prefer to sell them as a set of 3, as the cost of shipping them will exceed the cost of the box otherwise, but I will let them go as needed.
 I can line them with a different color or make you something completely custom.

Ambrosia Maple

Ambrosia Maple gets its name from a beetle that infests the wood, so you get a wonderful mineral streaking throughout the wood, including beetle holes in some cases that penetrate the wood in all directions.

I love the streaking in this wood.

Felt lined bottom

Have something special in mind?
Let me know what they are and lets see if we can get something started for you.
Thanks -Bill

Finished 3D Skull coasters

I hadn't posted up finished images of these cute things. What is fun about it is the skull is machined in 3D then cleared over flat with the 2 part resin that dries hard as a rock.
The 3D relief can be anything you would want. I sell these for $25.00 for a set of 4, but I can make different quantities to make you.
Have an idea or two? Drop me a note and we can get something started for you.
Thank you, -Bill

Chief was our first Shepherd, Here is our second.

We have always had Great Danes all our adult lives and still love the breed. Chief we rescued when he was 10 months old, and due to bad genetics only made it to almost 4. But he was a wonderful Dog and protector for my daughter and wife. He made such an impression on our lives, we got a new friend. we have not named him yet but he is sure gorgeous.
Ride Home
A little snooze before play time.

He is  A sable color with German lineage for both mom and dad. I hope he has a great life with us.

New Version of the original

I made this one before with cherry and butternut wood.
This I made for a friends mother for Christmas. It is different from the last one in a few areas. First it is cherry and black walnut. the inlay still carries through to the inside.
I however added a black walnut base to it as well with the same machined features on the bottom of the base.

I did also finish this one with an oil based polyurethane instead of water.

If something like this interests you, let me know what you would like to see, It can be made a reality.
Thanks -Bill

Its probably too close to get something done for Christmas yet, but if you would like a really cool custom gift for yourself or someone in your life, why don't you drop me a note and lets get working on it.
