Small Crafts, Boxes, Picture Frames, and Lighting


Image Uploading Suggestions

We appreciate your help in keeping our image gallery orderly and easy for others to research.

Please consider these suggestions while uploading your images.

 

  • Name your images before uploading to our gallery, the generic camera file names just look so messy. "Walnut Desk" looks so much better than "DSC19467je69.jpg". You can also name your images after you upload them to our gallery for your convenience.
  • After uploading your images, please consider adding a description so your viewers know what they are seeing and the wood used, the tools used, or even your inspiration for building the project.
  • Please consider tagging your images so our members and guests will be able to successfully search for your image and related images. Tags can be inserted into the "Tags" field. An example of tags and their names should be related to your project. If your project images are of a Walnut Desk with dovetail joinery, than tag the image with "Walnut", "Desk", "Dovetail" etc.

 

Thank you for your cooperation. :)

The Management

Upload your arts and crafts here, smaller projects such as boxes and picture frames are more then welcome!

  1. Box of Chisels Updated

    Had a stash of older chisels, that needed a better home than just a dank & dusty old drawer to rattle around in.   Still had a bit of 1/2" Poplar, and a bit of 1/4" Luann plywood....
    Through dovetails on the corners, hand cut
    Grooves to house the plywood panels, ploughed with the Stanley 45
    Top edge of the lid, rounded over with a block plane and a couple chisels
    Lid was handsawn off of the box, after the box was glued up
    Hardware from Hobby Lobby
    Gunstock oil stain
    Clear Gloss Poly top coat.  
    Dividers are pine scraps glued in place.
    Lid is padded to prevent any rattles...

    Bunch of Ash and pine scraps, and a few pieces of plywood....resaw the solid wood.  Build 6 drawers, then a case to house them...with an "attic" above...add a lid.   Lots of glue-ups, LOTS of dados and rebates.
     
    Antique brass plated hardware.  Minwax "Gunstock" stain, and one coat of Clear Gloss Poly.   Add a foam pad for the floor of the "attic", add a chain for the lid, and something to hold a label with...should be easy enough?

  12. Charles Schmitz Updated

    Shadow box for veterans of WWll sub vets of New Paltz NY. A Wreath as gift from a member of parliament presented to the U.S. submarine veterans of WWll. My father is a member and asked me if I could do this for them and could not be happier to do so. My father started off on the old diesel subs then went to the nuclear subs later and made it to chief missal tech and retired after 20 plus years. He also was sent to Great Britain to help train with nuclear tech.

  21. Yugoslavian Clock Jewelry Case Updated

    I had a customer bring an old gutted clock case from Yugoslavia that belonged to his grandma. He wanted the case converted into a jewelry case for his wife. He did not really have any ideas, so he told me to come up with something, and just do it, so I did!
     
    The old clock case is oak, and it has a rounded bezel glass in the top middle of the door, I was very nervous having this around, if it broke, there would be no replacement for it.
     
    The project was fun, and he and his wife were very happy.
