Donation to a silent church auction

This is one of two items I am preparing for a local Church silent auction in mid May.
I will finish this piece out completely and winner can have the landing embossed or engraved with whatever they like.

Interwoven leaves border

I still have some machine work to do on it yet but I will get finished pictures posted up when its completed. 

Need a custom sign or Plaque?
Thank you . -Bill

Finished Double Box

I finished the double box from the other day. Wife has a craft fair this weekend, but it is for sale should anyone want it. 

Again it is birdseye maple lids, with black walnut base. 

Base features an undercut, I haven't decided on what I wanted to line it with yet. Velvet or suede sounds like a good idea to me.  


Most of the work I do is custom. So let me know what you are looking for.
Thank you. -Bill

Birdseye Maple and Walnut

I have not made a box in a while so I had to get it out of my system.
Fully radiused vertical box brims.
Pick on the pictures to see the birds eye. its tough to get images that show it., Once stained it should show better .

Never made a double box before either. 

Matching Lids

Box features Undercut compartments
Also fully radiused lids walls as well. Those little tabs you see on the inside of the lid rest on the base lips. You can actually make out the birdseye in that image.

I will post finished pictures up in a few days.

This is the table top for the "Erector Set" seen in an earlier post

Because I can only get time here and there for things, I have to do them in pieces. Here are a couple pictures to the large folding table. This finished "slab-O-oak" is 30 inches by 20 inches.
As you can see it is still on the machine so it will require sanding yet but it is a hunk.
It is about 2 inches thick.
It will eventually get mounted to the assembly here very soon.

Need something? Say something. :) email me at and I can get started on something for you too.

2 Inch Cherry

Need a custom cutting board? I seem to be making a few of these as of late.
Thanks Bill

Erector set?

This is one of a couple projects that has been keeping me entertained in my spare time. Its nice to start to see it finally coming together.
The first images are design concepts for a large old school TV tray type folding table. Table top on this is 30 inches by 20 inches. Top thickness is 1 1/2 inches thick.

This blue dowels are 1 1/4 inch red oak


Here is the first test fitting of the machined components.
Bring in the machined parts he says!

Again just test fitting nothing permanently installed

This thing is going to be quite stout. All dowels will be glued and cross doweled in place. 

Ignore the chords. Still getting things settled in new place. 

I will update as the assembly becomes... well assembled.
