  1. Treadle sewing machine repurposed

    My mother was left an old Singer treadle sewing machine table many years ago by my grandma. My daughter always loved it, even in its rough shape, so my mother gave it to her. Of course that means dad has a new project. The top was way beyond repair and my daughter liked the idea of using it as a...
  2. QSWO Mission Style Media Cabinet - M&T

    Finally finished this beast. This is my biggest project yet. When I started it 4 months ago, I had a lot of questions. I came to the forum for help, and I appreciate all of the advise I got from you guys. There are nearly 80 mortise and tenons on this piece. To start this project, I picked...
  3. Mahogany Bookcase

    This is my first project that I designed from the ground up. The case and shelves are 3/4 "Genuine" Mahogany ply while the face frame and shelf edging is African Mahogany.

  4. Darrell Peart's Arched Aurora Table

    Hey folks. I recently had the good fortune of taking a 6-day class with Darrell Peart at the William Ng School.

  5. First "Real" project - Farmhouse style Dining Table

    The story will need an update, but here is my first ever "real" project. Before this I'd made some plywood cabinet-type construction, some miscellaneous pine panel items, my workbench, and precisely one spatula… The top is where most of the effort & $$$'s went. Its primarily a 4/4 hickory...
  6. Lamps

    I made these lamps out of white oak and finished with puritan pine stain and semi-gloss arm-r-seal wipe on poly/ per the customers request. This is actually my first commission job. Only two of them are going to the customer, the others I want to try to sell. I'm selling them for $80 each...
  7. Christmas Exchange Box

    I tried to get this done before the Party Sunday but ran out of time. I think I'll just give it to some good neighbors. It's simply Oak and Cherry. I finished it with Arm-R-Seal. It measures 6 1/2 X 5 1/2 X 5/12. I put a beveled top on it and really like the look. This is how I do hinges - I...

    Just finished a huge 4-month long trestle table build. All 8/4 hard maple, it's 9'x3' with seating for 10. Finished with dyed shellac and arm-r-seal. The client asked for "bombproof," well they definitely got it with this! She's a beast of a table for sure, with the top/legs weighing in at...

    I finally got my violin case all finished. It is made out of Poplar wood and is stained Cranberry Red (General Finishes) with Arm-R-Seal Semi Gloss Poly. I cut leather into strips and stained them with the Cranberry wood stain for the bow holders. The interior is covered in green velvet over...

I built the Mountain Scene tiled clock per the plans but omitted the...

  14. Danish cord entry bench

    This is a two-sitter entry bench with a seat made of Danish cord. I borrowed the idea from projects posted here on LJ, mostly this one. The weaving technique, materials, tools and patterns are explained in this great video by Ed Hammond. His tutorial seems to be the only one that covers the...
  15. Son's "first" Project

    For my son's fourth birthday, I made him a project kit of this step stool. Since his attention span is short and his thinking that things are made instantly, I completed the project including the finish. All he had to do is glue the joints and hammer in the Miller dowels! Once the glue was...

    Getting the jump on Christmas gifts early. Magnetic bottle cap openers I made out of scrap (Mahogany, Cherry, Walnut) I used 3 N52 1x.25" magnets, I wanted them to stick to a refrigerator door and not come off when opening a bottle. I made a prototype using gorilla tape to hold the magnets in...
  17. Solid Cherry Dresser

    I want to start by apologizing for this being a bit lengthy. I have been getting into woodworking over the last couple of years, accumulating tools and experience along the way. My interest has mostly been driven by my children. I wanted them to have nice furniture that they could hand down to...
  18. Oak Picture Frame

    I wanted this to be a little on the rustic side to compliment the saddle, so I milled boards from a recently fallen oak. I applied CA glue throughout the cracks in the bark to stabilize it. Then I applied 3 coats of Waterlox, Satin finish over the entire frame. Decided not to miter the...

    A gift for a friend. A mix of walnut, yellowheart, and purpleheart. The top is canary wood. I made the lid last. If I'd have known how good the canary wood was going to turn out I would have probably used it throughout. The end sides are pretty thick walnut. I made some purpleheart dowels...
