  1. Mini Woodworking Bench

    I was asked to hold a French Polish seminar at our Mason Dixon Woodworkers Club Meeting. I knew that it would be impossable to do some examples using the plastic food tables that they had there. I had a piece of Maple Bowling Alley left over from my kitchen remodel so I dug it out and found...
  2. Loft Beds, window seats, desk w/drawers

    I was commissioned back on November 7th 2017 to build furniture for a family. I just finished the install yesterday. I built 3 giant oak loft beds, 2 oak window seats, and an oak desk with a 3 drawer bank. Took forever but I have never seen a family as happy as they were! Made all them hours...
  3. Arrow Serving Tray

    This was a gift for my future in-laws. It started off as a cutting board, but when I was done I wanted to do more with it. The frame is made of Cherry encasing a pattern made of Jatoba, Maple and Purpleheart. The splines are cut from some 1/4" Redheart scrap I had laying around. The bottom...
  4. Doll Beds

    I whipped up these miniature doll beds out of pine for a local craft lady who sewed miniature quilts for them. I saw them at a craft show but wasnt able to get a picture with the quilts which were very nice. I wiped on some acrylic paint, rubbed through on the edges and slid twine through...
  5. Cheese Board with Wire Knife

    Made the first one of these for a Christmas swap, it was such a hit I had requests for more! Woods are Black walnut, Holly, Purple heart & Cherry - wiped on some Cutting Board conditioner. Thanks for Looking.
  6. Cherry Slatted beds

    3 More solid cherry beds for the local furniture store. I guess i am the bed guy as I have now made over 15 in the past years. Solid wood is a pleasure to work. Tons of cherry to bring back from the yard to make all these but who could ask for more. And I have enlisted the children for a true...
  7. Sideways Ross Murphy Bed | Custom

    This is a Murphy bed that was completed on January 26, 2008. It is called The Ross. This is a style that I build often, but this is the first sideways version. Here is an upright version that I posted on Lumberjocks called Ross Murphy Bed. It is built in oak with 2 24" bookcases. Most of...
  8. Toolbox / Small Blanket Chest

    This is the Heirloom Tool Chest that Chris Gochnour wrote about in Fine Woodworking #169. I took the course on using hand tools at MASW with Chris and this is the project that we built. I was exposed to so much during this course that I can hardly wait until I can attend another week long...
  9. My 2nd log bed

    This Aspen Caricature Log bed was my 2nd attempt and it was a real challenge. My garage/workshop has a very unlevel concrete floor that slops at different angles at each corner. Making anything level was fun…but it turned out nice. Again the rails are mortised into the legs which makes this bed...
  10. New knot from solid wood made using new knife

    This is two projects in one. Friend of mine gave me very old and chipped straight shaving razor. I decided to put that steel to the test. With torch I heated up the back of the blade until it turn to blue color, just to soften a bit. Then I shaped it and made a handle from oak. Sharpening of the...
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    My client, a small retailer, has asked me to make a headboard for a display in his store. He currently is displaying a mattress that simply sits on one of those basic metal bed frames that are everywhere. My question is, is there a special type of hardware that I should purchase that will allow...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey all! I've just put together a Grizzly G0490W - 8" Jointer with Parallelogram Beds and started to check/ set up the beds before using it. How accurate do you guys set this up before it's acceptable to use? I'm using "this 50 straight edge and started by checking the individual beds with...

    Does anyone have any good pics or plans or ideas for Bunk beds for boys ( 10yrs /13 yrs) with drawers/storage underneath? Looking for something they won't outgrow in 7 years to make for them. Thanks lumberjocks.
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    So I finally got fed up with the crappy infeed/outfeed support tables that Delta provided with my 22-540 and I built a long, semi-permanent table to address the issue of snipe and lack of support for long boards. The problem is now I'm getting double snipe on the leading end of my boards and...

  16. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hi folks. I haven't been very active on here because shortly after I signed up I was deployed overseas but I have kept tabs through the Facebook portal. Anyway, I am back home for a bit and am looking to build a loft bed for my son. I do ok in the workshop but I am not very good at the design...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey, Has anyone moved a Hamer A3-31 such that they had to remove the beds? I'd like to buy one, and it seems that the only feasible way to get it into my basement shop is by partially disassembling (removing the beds and maybe the cutter head). Might be a bad idea - buying a new Hammer and...

    Bunk bed Well here goes another project! My oldest daughter asked if I could make the granddaughters a bunk-bed. So as usual dad is up to the challenge!! After three days of looking on the Internet for different bed styles I picked the one pictured below. We all approved this bed as the one...

  20. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I need to make several quick but sturdy beds doubles and queens for family. Basically platform beds using 2X4s, 2X6s and plywood. Don't want hardware any more complicated than bolts because my supply will be Home Depot or the like. I want them sturdy but able to take down. This isn't fine...
