  1. Arts & Crafts Mailbox in quarter sawn white oak

    Design copied, generally, from common one on internet. If only the house matched the oak.
  2. Mission Table Lamp

    This lamp is not for the timid as it is made up of over 60 pieces of quarter sawn white oak. It is an adaptation of an original table lamp seen at the St. Paul, MN Arts & Crafts show. The lamps have become a favorite of our extended family and make a great wedding present. The changes I made...
  3. Vanity Base

    I was commissioned to build this piece for some friends who were remodeling their master bath. It's made of red oak and finished with Minwax oil-based Classic Oak and Sedona Red. It was designed in AutoCAD around the vanity purchased at Ikea. The grate shelf fit together very snugly with the...
  4. Greene and Greene Motawi Tile Frame

    We visited the Gamble House in Pasadena. As a woodworker, I was so moved by the craftsmanship that when my girlfriend showed me the Motawi tiles she really liked, I told her I would make a commemorative frame for them in the Greene and Greene style. It was extremely difficult for such a small...
  5. Craftsman Bookends

    I saw an ad for these in the back of American Bungalow magazine (worth getting just for the ads). My girlfriend had to go to a business meeting, so I said I'd make a set before she got home. She looked at me with those "another project?" eyes. Sure enough, when she got home, they were ready...
  6. Bunch of Frames

    Here are a couple of frames that I've made over the last couple of months. 1. African Mahogany with copper accent strips, commissioned by a friend. 2. Wenge with bronze stud accents, given to my grandfather, who is also a woodworker, for christmas. 3. Asian style, wenge with mahogany accents...
  7. Blanket Chest - Mission / Art&Crafts Style

    When I found the plans for this Mission / Arts & Crafts Blanket Chest in Wood Magazine (Feb./March 2005), I just knew that it would just look great sitting next to my first big furniture project, the Barrister's Bookcase and it would provide additional temporary seating as a bench. As with the...
  8. Stickley #72 Magazine Cabinet

    I have limited time and needed to build a small book stand for our house. There are 2 style you can't go wrong with and they are Arts & Crafts or Shaker. I thought the Stickley #72 Magazine Stand would fit the bill perfectly. The original actually had an arch at the bottom of the side panel but...
  9. Mission Table Lamp - 2

    Lumberjocks can't be beat for being the most ego friendly forum. Thanks for the comments. Some have asked for more info so here is a photo of the lamp w/o the shade and one of the inside of the shade. These are from the first lamp I made as the improved lamps are with my daughters. Just...
  10. Stickley Tabouret

    I built this tabouret based on the plans from Robert Lang's "Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture. It's a reproduction of the StickleyNumber 603 Tabouret. The entire project was completed using only hand tools with the exception of the mortises. I like being a galoot, but I'm not crazy...
  11. Arts & Crafts Crib

    This is the arts & crafts crib that I built for our daughter. Plan came from modifying the sizes for the Arts & Crafts Bed from Wood Magazine Oct. '04 issue. Each leg is cut from four pieces of quartersawn white oak mitered and splines cut it for more support. This was very difficult to line...
  12. Craftsman Style Mantle

    The walnut mantle was made for our daughter's new house.The dentil molding was cut on the table saw using a box joint set up.
  13. Bedframe - Arts & Crafts

    Finally, after many years of really having…nothing for a frame, 3 months and 110+ hours I've completed my bedframe. Not really wanting just a flat (or larger version of the footboard) for a headboard, I decided on a bookcase headboard, built to match the style of my dresser. Got a few ideas...
  14. Plant Stand Trio

    These were a fun little project that also helped me justify my recent Domino purchase. The interior decorator selected cheap borg tiles for the surfaces because they will not be very visible as you can see from pic 5. I wimped out and didn't grout the tiles. Instead, I have the tiles sitting...
  15. Arts & Crafts Bookshelves

    This is a set of bookshelves for my sister-in-law's wedding gift. She got married in July and I finished them mid-December. I've been pretty busy planning our new house construction so… better late than never. This was my first attempt at the keyed tenon joint and I was really impressed with...
  16. Stickley Prairie Sofa #220

    This is my rendition of the named piece. The main challenge presented is the overall size-it measures about 7' L by 3' D by 2.5' H. Due to the size and not wanting any unfinished areas to show with seasonal movement by the panels, I finished each piece separately, except the 3 pieces for the...
  17. Stickley Style Sculpture Stand

    My friend, Bob Engman, makes sculpture that embody the mathematical notion of minimal surfaces, even though he is not trained in mathematics. His recent work is smaller scale, so I thought I might make a taller and narrower (30" h x 16" w) variant of Gustav Stickley's #603 as a Christmas...
  18. Pair of Greene and Greene style clocks

    These are two Greene and Greene style clocks I built using the Wood magazine plans. The clocks are made using a ribbon Mahogany that truly has to be seen in person to appreciate. the chatoyance the grain gives off is beautiful. I built the Mountain Scene tiled clock per the plans but omitted the...
  19. Arts & Crafts Floor Lamp

    I made this lamp as part of a project involving 51 artists making projects out of one 111 year old walnut tree. The oneTree exhibit is on for ten weeks at the Robert Bateman Gallery in Victoria, BC. Instead of using this badly cracked tree for firewood we made projects having a total value of...
  20. Reproduction Stickley 603 Taboret

    This reproduction of the Gustav Stickley #603 round taboret is based on Robert Lang's plan in Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture. It is made of local black walnut obtained from Spacht Sawmill. The first photo shows the entire table, but the glare on the top doesn't reveal the figure very...
