Jack Hutchison talked about this toy box of red gum that he built for his grandson.  It is pattered after an 18th century jointer tool box.  It has a floating panel top with a one inch molding around the edge.  The hinge is a Japanese Slow Down Hing designed to allow the lid to slowly close by itself with out assistance.  Jack finished it with a coat of minwax red oak stain followed by a polyurethane varnish.

This red oak cross was scrollsawed by Ron Adams from a six inch wide piece of red oak.  The cat face was also scrollsawn just purrrrrfectly from a piece of cedar picket fence...his "practice" piece.

Denis Muras stands by his top half of a Dutch door of cypress rails and stiles.  The stiles are pulled securely to the rails by drilling alignment holes that are slightly offset.  When a tapered peg is inserted, the taper forces the holes to align thus snugging the stile up to the rail.  This is a technique used in timber frame construction.

The unusual looking piece is an armature for constructing the eye of a tiger for an eight foot high tiger head for Sealy High School. The armature will support pieces of wood to create an intarsia effect.

 Monte Richard proudly displayed his chest of drawers made of cherry. The bracket feet were made on a table saw as you would cut coves.  An ogee fillet for the drawer front.  Frame and panel construction with MDF for sides.  Drawer bottoms are of baltic birch.  To create an old finished cherry look, Monte used a base of boiled linseed oil followed by orange shellac topped by a coats of varnish rubbed inbetween applications.
