Rustic box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Rustic boxVery heavy wood, dont know what it is. Could be wattle ?
Again, acquired from the old cabinetmaker friend, and if it was something
he valued enough to keep, it might be something “of quality”. In which case
I havent done it justice.Don't like book-matching for lids, so used a leather that
matches some of the lighter-color wood.Have more of the wood, but no plans to cut it til it's time for the
saw to be sharpened anyway.
update: the saws went out for sharpening yesterday. “The master”
says he sends them every year about this time. Probably wont
slice the rest up til next November.

Mountain Dulcimer

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Mountain DulcimerI recently finished building this mountain dulcimer and it is an absolute joy to play! Dulcimers are relatively simple to build, similar to a guitar but easier. It has a black walnut back/sides, peghead, and fingerboard, a reclaimed redwood soundboard, eucalyptus red gum binding, and a honey locust burl endcap. I purchased the fretboard from Folkcraft Instruments, but I did all the fretwork myself. The tuners are Gotoh; it also has a buffed wax finish.
Overall, this dulcimer has really sparked my interest in musical instrument build!
Thanks for looking, any comments or questions are welcome!

Another Consul Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Another Consul Table I got this slab at auction for $20 with another slab off of the same tree. The other is not live edge, different part of the tree, and will make a fine matching coffee table. 1 square tubing metal base with the mesh shelf.

Christmas Village - Knock Down Tiered Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Christmas Village - Knock Down Tiered TableA friend wanted a three tier 52 x52 corner display table for his wife's Christmas village. It had to be knock down so I came up with this. Poplar frame (they'll paint it) and 1/2 Baltic Birch Plywood.
Holes for the electric cables. And they will drape it in a white snow like cloth.
It folds flat and when the tops hook into the dowels in the frame it's pretty rigid but still lightweight.
