Kitchen Island

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Kitchen IslandBoss wanted a new kitchen island..as she had outgrown the old one…She found a design she liked (finally!) and I had to go out and buy a stack of Ash lumber to build it with….Last picture is a work in progress…The middle shelf is 3/4” Pine plywood. There is 3/4” pine boards for the drawer's sides and back….and 1/4” Luann for the drawer's bottom panel.Took almost the entire month of June to do…..but, at least she likes it. There are casters under each leg, as she wanted to be able to roll it where, and when needed.

Sea Captain

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Sea CaptainThis sea captain is my first project posted on Lumberjocks. I began wood carving in January of 2019 and regret that I didn't start a whole lot earlier. I've had so much enjoyment finding characters in wood! This little captain is 6” tall and is made of bass wood. He was made as a gift for my older brother who is a collector of nautical related items.

Koa tenor ukulele

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Koa tenor ukuleleLots went wrong but I was using hide glue and was able to re-do an number of steps, including re-setting the neck. It turned out to sound great and was made for a friend, who won't notice the issues with the final finish. I'd made a walnut soprano previously, so had a basic idea of the process but hadn't tried purfling, binding, a side sound hole, bound keyboard, side dots, inlay, bridge pins, and a few other things, so it was a great learning process.The body is koa and the fretboard and bridge are Osage orange, which has darkened a lot more over the past year.I bought a thickness calliper from Lee Valley, a bending iron from Stewmac and a gramil to score the channels for the binding. It was hand planes, saws and chisels other than that. Very do-able as an apartment project.
