Travel jewelry boxes / Small keepsake

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Travel jewelry boxes / Small keepsakeSmall boxes with pull off lids. These are a “save” from a run of boxes that were intended to have hinges and magnets. Unfortunatly, I took the stock thickness too thin to accept the magnets and hinge screws and it generally turned into a mess after I ruined three trying to will it to work.So, I put them aside for about 8 months. Then decided to add a liner taller than I usually do, and voila, a really satisfying sliding action to open and close these now. They are tiny little boxes and I have 6 more to “save” from the original run…I'll get to those later!Padouk and “I can't recall”

Small bookcase

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Small bookcaseThis was at an Airbnb where I stayed a couple of years ago, & I took a pic and a couple of measurements.
The wood is madrone, milled in northern California many years ago- difficult to dry, but great to work after that.
the 5/8” sides and shelves are joined with #10 biscuits. The trefoil design is very easy & fun- three tangent holes with a forstner bit & rout with a small cove. 22”, 32”, 10”, shelves angle 12.Does this happen to you?

Backyard SwingSo, my brother in law had an old swing on an A frame type structure. He asked if I could build a new swing so he can surprise his wife. This is what I came up with. Hope she likes the difference.
