  2. McMullen Master Vanity

  3. A Newly Born "Antique" Box

    A couple of months ago, I was reading Sheila Landry's blog entries (as I do most every day) and became very interested in a box she antiqued using paint and some really wonderful stenciling techniques. It got me thinking. What would it take to create an item that would look perfectly at home...
  4. Reclaimed Maple Beam Mantle

    Here's a simple reclaimed mantle we put in a historic home in Phoenix. The customer came to the yard and picked out the beam that we cut this from.

  5. Cracked, Antique Iron, Coat/Hat rack

    This idea occurred to my wife while we were browsing through an antique store and she saw a mixed bunch of old cast iron coat/hat hooks.

    I have seen several with some sort of grandpa indication in their name and many making projects for grand kids. How many of us are grandpas or grandmas?
  12. Wood & Lumber
    Hi all. I'm getting ready to start building some bookcases. I'm going to use 3/4'' birch plywood from my hardwood supplier. Should I acclimate these sheets to my shop? If so, for how long? Also, I will probably have my lumber yard cut the panels into managable dimensions for transportation...
