  3. For My Girlfriend

    My girlfriend and I went to Orlando and stopped to look at some wood for the cutting board and wine butler I made for a wedding gift. She really liked this piece of cocobolo so we picked it up so I could make some out of it. I had a piece of bubinga and some curly maple so I decided as the...

  9. Miyajima

    This clock is my latest project. The second picture is the inspiration. The tricky part was cutting the through mortises into the dowel rods then making them all line up. But my Oh sh*t moment came when I realized that I couldn't fit the clock part into my mortising machine. Ended up cutting...
  10. Japanese Box - My Take

  12. Daddy's Chair

    This is my first chair designed and built. I learned many things through this process…..chairs are the hardest to build, comfort is paramount, and the design has to fit all shapes and sizes of people. That's a tall order. Chair was inspired by an antique Morris Chair that we purchased more...

    Well after deciding to do woodworking again I needed a project to do. My son was fresh home from college and said that his bed had broken. He wanted a new one.

    This is my most recent project that I made for my in-laws as a house warming gift. This is a ribbon sapele bench with a walnut cross-piece.

  17. Platform Bed in Sapele

    This is a queen size platform type frame made from Sapele. This is not my design, I got the idea from a fellow lumberjock link here (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/22165 ). I like his better but I think this reproduction is ok. I used Sapele throughout, and to support the mattress there is...

  20. Pair of Asian Inspired Stools

    Quite a few months ago, a co-worker of mine requested I make her a distressed, oak stool. A "trick" I use from time to time to get additional business is to take the finished piece into work and leave it by my desk for at least a day before I hand it over to it's new owner. This always get...
