  1. McMullen Master Vanity

    This was my first ever cabinet. This vanity was made for friends of mine that were finishing up some remodeling just in time for the Billings Heritage Home Tour. The key elements to making the vanity look like a piece of furniture were the legs and the unbroken faceframe. The construction is...
  2. May Shaker Bench

    I sold this bench over the internet to clients in New York. They did a google search for Shaker Benches, found my site, and found my benches. This is the most popular piece that I have in my portfolio and I have sold several of them. The wood is curly cherry and even the back of the bench...

    Modern Sofa Table This table was built to be auctioned off at a local charity fundraiser to benefit the mentally and physically handicapped. It is built to the same dimensions as the Eco Sofa Table but I made some design element changes. The most obvious difference is that I dyed the bamboo...
  5. Kitchen Banquette with Table

    This banquette is made of a poplar frame and plywood panels. It has a toe-kick heater under the left half and two drawers, one 3 foot and one 4 foot long. Yes, those are very long drawers that make for lots of storage! The paint is Pittsburgh Manor Hall oil base. It flows out and self levels...

  7. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am looking into getting a router that will support 1/2" shank bits. I saw this ad today and am curious what others think. There are 66 router bits for $104 bucks plus shipping. This seems dirt cheap. Am throwing good money at cheap bits or are these decent inexpensive bits...
  8. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I received a 50s/60s era 6" jointer recently. after rehabbing the body somewhat and getting the bed moving again, I made the mistake of breaking the pressfit bearings on the blade shaft. I don't think I can get the big drum removed (I think it would have done something before this point if I...

I really owe all the thanks to my clients, the Coopers, for trusting in me and allowing me to run with my design ideas. It has often been asked of me, why don't I...

    Finally Learning SketchUp Computer Challenged I had just bought my MacBook in 2006 and was still learning how to use it when I bought the pro version of SketchUp. I had grand delusions of doing all of my design work on the computer. I refer to this as a delusion because with running my own...

    Cat Scratch Fever The Mission I was contacted by some clients and asked if I would take a look a repairing an antique table they had. Antique may be used loosely here but it was an old table and was part of a set of nesting tables. The set may not be of any particular value as antiques, but...
