The Bug – a pill box

Wooden box made to resemble a bug. It’s been hollowed out inside to hold a few pills. It opens with a tiny hinge and stays securely shut with customized rare earth magnets.

Sliding Door Entertainment Stand

I created this entertainment stand to hold our living room electronics, DVDs, and PlayStation games. I’d previously made a bookshelf (I’ll have to add a picture soon) and my wife wanted it to coordinate.

Since the doors needed to slide past each other I created the hardware using skateboard wheel bearings and a narrow track. And to brace the bottom of the doors and keep things sliding evenly I added bearings from a router bit to hold the doors plumb.

Linz: an action figure

I made this poseable wooden action figure of my wife. Her wooden and glass box close on the side with a series of pegs and a red ribbon lacing up the side. Her props include a tiny wooden camera, a teddy bear with a snake body, and a wooden and copper sickle.
