Travel Chess Set

This chess set is created out of maple and walnut woods to create the “whites” and “blacks”. Its got small magnets on the inside corners to hold the board tightly closed when its folded in half. The pieces all fit snuggly inside and is practically a puzzle in its own right to put away!

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.
