  1. "Spinal," Conoid Rocking Chair

    Two-legged rocking chair with a "spine" back. I made this for a customer. It was also in a furniture show last night and had about 200 people sit in it. This one was a challenge. There is a discussion of the design stage here: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/40596 Comments, criticism...
  2. Wooden Bike

    My woodshop is in the same building as some custom bike makers. They've been harassing me for two years to make a wooden bike. I would always smile and nod and then as I walked away I would think "that would be awesome but it'll never happen." Well, I got the bug a fe weeks ago and dove in...
  3. Walkaway Cabinet

    I was taking a "goofing around" break from paid work and decided to play with the lathe. It was my first time doing any off-center turning (really I don't have much of any turning experience) and ended up with a spindle that looked an awful lot like an animal leg. I had a krenov-style cabinet...
  4. Furniture Gallery Retail Counter

    We just had our grand opening of Soulcraft Gallery - a gallery of Cleveland-based furniture designers and artisans. I had a few sleepless nights finishing this retail work island for the opening. The base is in Cherry. Its a basic cherry-ply case, with solid cherry 1/4" complementary...
  5. Double Helix Table/Bench

    This was a total design-on-the-fly. I had a ton of maple cut-offs, all about 7/8" x 1 1/2" x 18" from a bunch of butcher block I did. I was just playing around with the cutoffs and came up with a spiral effect, with each successive piece set a few degrees askew from the last - and each side...
  6. Palate Coffee Table

    I've been having fun recently doing some "re-purposing" projects for a client. This is a coffee table made from a ratty ole palate. I removed two of the slats and replaced them with new walnut. I think put steel between the "open spaces" between the slats. Each side has a drawer with a steel...
  7. Suitcase Desk

    Another project for a client who wanted some "re-purposed" furniture. This is a standing-height desk. The wood is walnut and the "desk-top" hinges up for storage. The legs are blackpipe. Pretty simple and fun project!
  8. Wine Bottle Wall Sconce

    This was for a client who wanted some "re-purposed" furniture. The idea started with an antique drying rack I came upon. I built a box (quarter-sawn walnut veneer) for the rack to mount on, to hide the electrical, and to house a cleat for wall-mounting. I then cut the bottoms off the wine...
  9. Music Cabinet

    I was asked to make something that can house the sheet-music and music books for a customer. Their space has a very asian feel and they also wanted it to be about bench-height, because they like to have family gather around the piano and sing (this piece will sit next to their piano under a...
  10. Protruding Arch

    This coffee table is myrtle (quarter-matched veneer), Cherry and Walnut. I knew I wanted to incorporate an arched stretcher into this table, and decided to try to make it look like it was protruding through the lower shelf of the table. Definately one of those concepts that could be tweaked in...
  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    The sign making router I am using keeps slipping /creeping out of the collet. I really have tightened it as much as I can. I really do not use the router that much so I cant believe the collet is worn. I would really appreciate any suggestions on this problem.
  12. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    I'm just about ready to get into a spray system. I'll be using it for more than the occasional project. I make storage crates, and at least right now, I've got 200 of them in the shop waiting to be stained and finished. I use mostly water based stain and or dyes, and water based poly. After...
  13. Site Help and Suggestions
    Some forums have "Normite" spaces and "Neanderthal" spaces. Noticing that most forums here are based around "Normites", how about a space for us knuckle draggers to call our own? It seems that Bertha's handplane of your dreams post has basically turned into that, why not go ahead and give us...
