  1. Wife's Craft Furniture

    This winter/spring I completed 3 pieces for my wife's craft room. The cabinet was designed to fit snuggly in the closet. It is made out of birch ply and poplar for the face frame. Then I made two steel framed tables with walnut as the top. The steel was grinded and sanded smooth. The walnut...
  2. TV stand

    I made the TV stand 4 years ago . I did not have my own worshop so i built it in the living room of the apartment. I also did not have many tools. Therefore, the quality leaves a bit to be desired Material is birch pltwood thickness 12mm and 18 mm. Thicker edges are glued.
  3. Basic Desk built with my son

    He's starting back to college soon and needed a place to do his work. So we designed and built a basic desk out of common materials. There he is working on sanding one of the last parts. There I am, in near final assembly… And here it is in his room.

  6. PA System "Mini-Stack"

    Not "fine woodworking" but fine sound. New 15" Bass-bins and Dual 8" Mid-bins for small shows. Will be topped with Yamaha 4201 horns in new smaller cabinets. My "mini-stack", bass-bins are 21" cubes. All cabinets are 3/4" birch plywood covered in black carpet, butt joints with 2-1/8" trim-head...
  7. Shop Tool Cart

    Needed some organization for my shop and I thought this Tool Cart from Woodsmith would be perfect. Easy to build! Still need to put some finish on the piece and then organize the drawers. The four drawer box on top can be taken off the larger cabinet and brought over to the workbench! Really...

    This is my 3rd and best set of cornhole boards to date…lol. They are made out of 1/2 inch birch plywood and 1×4 Poplar. They are assembled using pocket screws and glue.

  9. Garage Cabinets

    As you can see from previous projects, I have been spending a lot of time trying to get my garage into some sort of order. I needed some cabinets and these really fit the bill. Made them out of birch plywood from HD and poplar (face frame). Thanks for looking!
  10. Air cleaner

    This is an air cleaner that I built. It was surprisingly easy to put together and everything can be found at a local home center for under $100. I used a attic fan that moves 1600 cfm and three 1" air filters which I change every few months. Instead of using an on/off switch I used a 60 minute...
  11. Birch Plywood Stools

    Helen Keller walked into a bar, then a table, then a stool…. Here is my first attempt at half-lap joints. I bought a hand miter saw from Lee Valley which made doing the angles much easier, but man what a lot of sawing! One will be used at my daughters IKEA desk and the other one is just a...
  12. Trundle Bed

    My wood buddy and I designed and built a trundle bed for his grand kids when they visit. The design is our interpretation of the Greene & Greene style. The side aprons and bottoms are Birch plywood while Alder is used for the head and foot sections. The construction joinery consisted of dowels...
  13. Saw cabinet

    I've needed a place to store my saws for a while now. After wrapping up the box swap, I got out some pine I had and started building another box, this one a little bigger. I've gotten quicker at preparing lumber with hand tools. The pine had a little cup to it, so some quick traversing with the...
  14. Small Dresser

    My wife's grandparents moved into an assisted living facility, which was really just a small two-bedroom apartment. They had been living in a typical bungalow on the south side of Chicago for 60 years. They did not have too much in the way of furniture, as they were always saving their money...

  16. I finally made a scrap wood MITER SLED with Sapele and Zebrawood 3.0

    So when I bought my tablesaw a few years ago I didn't realize that "wood working" was many hours of "jig making" in order to have a few fabulous moments of wood working. So this miter sled was made as a result of cutting countless miters every other wrong way possible until I realized that this...
  17. Santa's New Sled

    On Saturday, My daughter Victoria and I went to Lowes to do the little build project for children. We built a sled. I told her, "If you don't put those sickers on it, you can paint it and give it to Grandma." She liked the idea of giving Grandma a sled but she wanted a bigger one. I said, "I...
  18. "Sedici Animali" (Sixteen Fishes) - an Homage to Enzo Mari's MCM puzzle

    Enzo Mari designed this c. 1957 for Italian manufacturer, Danese Milano. My understanding is that the original was Oak, (or sometimes plastic), around 1 inch thick. This puzzle was made out of 1/2" thick birch ply. My dear friends are expecting their first baby any day now - I made this as a...
  19. Cat Wheel, Over the Top Effort

    Occasionally I am asked to make some unusual pieces. This cat wheel clearly fit the bill. It was a for my son and his fiance', so I didn't spare the effort or expense on the design or the build. I used 3/4" flame birch plywood for the cabinet, base and wheel back. Quarter sawn white oak was...
