  1. Artist Box

    I saw this idea on Lumberjocks and thought it would be a great project to make for a friend. Something that is fairly compact that she can take around and setup to paint when she feels inspired. The box is actually made of poplar. I chose poplar simply because I like the look of it, its easy...
  2. artist easel and paint box for daughter

    My daughter loves to paint so I made her a box to hold her materials and give her an easel she can use outdoors. Made from a half sheet of 1/4" birch plywood veneered with some very old cherry laying around for years. Filled it with oil paints and will send it today as an unexpected gift. Shhh...

    Claude is working on the the sky. Just trying to get it right. http://www.flickr.com/apps/video/stewart.swf?v=109786
  4. Easel with tilt

    I like to paint on canvas, and as such I've made a few easels over the years. I finally like this one, because it not only allows me to tilt the whole easel forward and back (using the rear support knobs) but lets me tilt the canvas support frame so that the top of the canvas comes toward me...
  5. Reclaimed Redwood Hexagonal Coffee Table set

    Trio of hexagonal tables (I call them "Hextables") made from reclaimed redwood from old buildings that were being demolished. I used a ShopBot and V-Carve Pro to cut the hexagons and spiral grooves. Then I used the router table to create edge molding. back to the table saw to cut the edges and...
  6. Just Horsing Around (combining art and furniture) | Custom

    This was one of them fun beds. It is a design from a customer. They had one of our baseball beds on order and wanted us to create another theme type bed. This is a combination painting and bed. I am not an artist so we brought in a local artist to do the painting. We built the bed and left...
  7. Abby's Artist Cabinet

    This is a rolling art supply cabinet I built as a birthday gift for my soon to be sister in law. It's made of maple plywood and red oak, and includes three 24 inch drawers, and open cubby and an organization tray on the top. I wanted to use nicer drawer slides but budget concerns lead me away...
  8. Custom Hunting Skinning Knife Damascus Steel Atypical Deer Antler Elephant Ivory Scrimshaw Artwork

    This Custom Made Antler Handled Damascus Steel Knife was a bit of a challenge for me. The Atypical Antler set had a right handed, mostly normal looking deer antler, while the left side had a mostly straight tall "spike" antler. The customer on this shot the deer in Ohio in 2010, and found me...
  9. Simple frame in sapele

    During a day trip to Talkeetna, Alaska last summer, my wife and I purchased a trio of prints from a local artist. Not-so-fast-forward to a few months later and I finally get around to making a frame for them. Never having worked with it before, I decided to try sapele. I had the mat and glass...
  10. Artist Painting Table

    Here is my latest project, an Artist Painting Stand. The stand is made out of Red Oak, with the tables made from Oak Plywood, Red Oak, and Purple Heart for accents. The dimensions are approximately 24×32 for the base, table height ranges from 26-38", one table is fixed and the other is...
  11. Nocturne #1

    Two months I have been invited to participate in a group exhibit at Protea Gallery in San Diego with a dozen other artists to provide a small dimension piece on the "Nocturne" theme. I did not know what to do until a week before delivery. I had some straw sitting around for me finding the time...
  12. Artists Drawing Bench/Horse

    Made my wife a drawing bench/horse out of 7/8" Oak and Maple. I didn't want to router any edges so I found some boards with a natural edge on them. No fancy joinery, all pocket screws and regular screws. Made maple plugs to match the maple diagonal supports. Last minute I added the shelf on...
  13. Artists Easel

    My Wife recently retired and decided she wanted to begin painting again. When we first were married she did quite a bit of painting in acrylics. After the kids were born she gave it up. She asked me if I could/would build her an easel. I said CERTAINLY!!! I began looking online for examples of...

  15. case for iphone 4s

    Protective sleeve for the iphone 4s. I have done these in the past but this is the first for the 4s generation. In previous designs, many times I received feedback that asked 'could it be made thinner?'. This case was built for me, and I don't plan on selling lots of them on Etsy or anything...
  16. Daughter's artist pallette

    I made this a couple years ago for my daughter. I think the main plank is padauk and the inlay I know is purpleheart. I just used a hand chisel for the finger grooves and sanded them down to a smooth 300-grit finish. Lots of sanding. Lots. I just coated it with 4 or 5 coats of high-gloss poly...

  18. Taboret: Artists cabinet

    After finishing the convertible wall easel I decided a nice and useful matching item would be an artists taboret. A taboret is a small cabinet used to store art tools, paints, and other items. I decided on a size of about 18"x18" and not too high as the top needed to be accessible while standing...
