Walnut Jewelry Box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Walnut Jewelry BoxI saw this jewelry box online, downloaded the plans, and thought I'd give it an attempt. Will give to my wife for Valentines day and I finished with a month to spare. Am happy with the finished product. The piece is made of walnut, with maple handles and maple boxes with a walnut face. Other than the top and base, all the parts are thin: 3/8 and 1/4 inch. There are 77 pieces of wood, 3 pieces of glass and two mirrors that had to be put together. I used Watco Spray Lacquer for the finish. First time I have used that. Hope you like it.

Kitchen island with wine rack, southern yellow heart pine top

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Kitchen island with wine rack, southern yellow heart pine top This was a commissioned piece for a friend who works with my wife. The heart pine was wide, 15” I think, and was harvested by a relative of hers. Always fun knowing you can't get another piece!
I haven't used pocket screws since this, I've graduated to real joinery now, but we have to start somewhere! Next time I'll cut mortises for the square dowels, those pocket screws probably took longer than mortises would have.
The base was framed with 2×6 and wrapped in 1×6 paint grade lumber. The legs (bought from Osborne wood products) bolt to the base from underneath. I mortised a threaded plate into the bottom of each.
She wanted it distressed and chose this pale blue color, I'm happy with the end result! I simply scuffed corners that would've actually worn over time and wiped those spots with dark stain.
The tops were finished with Howard's butcher block oil /wax blend, as was the matching cheese board (I had just enough leftover to make that for them).Thanks for looking!

Pecky cypress mirror frame

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Pecky cypress mirror frame I made this for my wife a while back, just adding some projects! It's river recovered pecky cypress, 2×8”
Only titebond holding the miters, and on the back I glued a piece of 1/4” plywood (it overlaps the frame about 3” on all sides) to give it a little more structure. I hung it with an aluminum cleat. One of my favorite pieces and I see it every day!
