  1. Bu Do

    This is the newest addition to my custom jewelry boxes. Bu-Do continues this series of sculptures that ties the medallion on top with the drawers. In this piece the drawer fronts and the inlay on top are all cut from a single slab of Spalted Maple lumber. The Honduran Mahogany case and maple...
  2. Maple Mortise Madness

    120 mortise and tennons, 12 dovetails, a lot of biscuits, a few dowels and there you have it! Two end tables and a couch table made of maple finished with three coats of 35 sheen lacquer. The only mechanical fasteners used are for the undermount soft close slides for the drawer. One end table...
  3. Biscuit Tables

    I just finished two "biscuit tables" for the family room. Called such, due to all joinery being biscuit joinery. I know… not everyone's favorite, but what I chose. The tables are solid poplar with bread-board tops, and 'mission oak' stain with several coats of lacquer.

    one my friends brought me this chair. it had been in his family for awhile. it was about to be thrown away because of it's condition, but he wanted to save it. obviously, it needed some help. it only had 3 good joints on it, i had to repair the rest of them. the funny thing is that he was...

  6. Coffee Cup Holder - Quick and Easy Gift Idea

    Hi everyone, I just finished a quick build and build video for a Coffee Cup Holder using a sycamore panel. It turned out pretty nice, I wish I would've used bigger hooks and spaced out the cups a little further apart, but it was good practice on panel joints for my upcoming dining table build...
  7. ladder/chair

    This is from an old magazine. Made of cherry. Each project step was a challenge. I made a plywood template for the leg patterns, roughed them out and then gang sanded them so they match. For the two rear leg assemblies a little rail is required, which is angled differently on each end. The...

    This cabinet is built from reclaimed wood. With a mirror and Mexican hinges and hardware..it will make a great bathroom cabinet with towel bar.
  10. Changing pad frame

    I refuse to spend $300 on this: I had some leftover maple from the cradle I made for my son who will be here any day now, so I made my own. It's not as fancy, but it'll do the job. I used biscuits for joinery and General Finishes Espresso water based dye stain and General Finishes...
  11. Crossfit trophy

    I can't show the finished product since I didn't do the metal work but the trophy used components mimicking items found in a crossfit gym. The box is made using Oak ply and finished with General Finishes Black Cherry and 3 coats of Behlen Qualalacq Lacquer with sanding between each coat. This...
  12. Barn Board Corner TV Center

    My sister needed a corner entertainment center for the surveying business. I had an old sauder one I fished out of the dumpster during college. This is a duplicate of that dumpster TV center. All the boards are reclaimed barn elm and ash (Mostly elm). Adjustable corner shelves and pull out...
  13. Shaker Style Plant Stand

    I watched Norm make one of these years ago and decided to make one for myself for my office. Office converted to a cube when my company moved so the plant stand came home. My new house screams for two of these to keep people from walking on the wooden grate over the air return. Plus the plant...
  14. Hall Table / Sofa Table

    Here's a small table inspired by by the Woodsmith hall table. (http://www.woodsmith.com/magazine/issues/104) It was drastically downsized to replace a small table beside my parents' refidgerator. (See photo with a pop can for scale reference.) It is made from hard maple dyed and stained to...
  15. Closet Storage Unit

    I created this out of necessity because the old brownstone we live in is lacking sufficient closets. KT and I have a good deal of open-air space and high ceilings but we sacrifice storage space. The loft has a small 5 foot wide (only 22" deep) closet augmented by an unfortunate particle board...
  16. Pine and Metal Table

    The table is 40" by 7'. The top is made up of 1×12 pine on top of 3/4 ply. The 1xs are biscuited and glued. They were then glued to the ply. The ply was used to give more stability to the pine. To hide the ply 3/4×3/4 pine trim was added to the sides and end grains. The legs and stretchers...
  17. More copper etching and patina

    It's me again, I made similar crosses a few months ago with wood borders and patinated copper centers. They sold well and I got a few suggestions on other designs people wanted. These crosses are in response to that request. I made nine total, three wood varieties with three center etchings...
  18. Mahogany Office Desk

    Being on COVID furlough gave me time to replace my old MDF laminate computer desk with a slight variation on the Home Office Desk featured in Woodsmith #144. I made the desk a full six foot length to allow for space in the knee-gap for a trash can and shredder. The four cabinets are made of...
  19. Cabinet Building Jigs

    I'm building some shop carts/cabinets so decided to make a few jigs to help with alignment. These are intended to be used in conjunction with the assembly table I recently made for this purpose. More details are shown in this video:
