  4. Greene & Greene Style Side Table

    I've finally finished my first furniture project. It's a side table I've built for my wife for our five year anniversary. She seemed happy, so I am too. I've learned a lot in this process- especially how to hide mistakes. There are a few gaps in the joints, but so far no one has noticed. The...

    This is my entry for "A Knot Like No Other".

  10. An occasional tabel out of almond, drum parts and reclaimed pine and oak

    I had this box full of drum-kit parts in the attic for years, it was never opened after our move to Portugal. Time for some recycling or better up-cycling! An off-cut piece of almond slap was used to make the top of this occasional table. Reclaimed pine and oak was used for the drawer. Drum-kit...

    Hi All, I have an opportunity to mill a pretty big Almond tree. To my surprise I couldn't find anything about it as timber (other than some rare references to turning). Anyone knows anything about it? It is not a true nut, BTW. Thanks!
