  1. Why I Work in Wood

    I'll give the project details first and then get into a little philosophy on this project and my woodworking in general. If the philosophy part doesn't interest you then just stop after the details. This is a toy chest/blanket chest I built for my grandson's first Christmas. He won't be old...
  2. Shaker Style Coffee Table with Blanket Storage

    Have a look at this Shaker Style Coffee Table with Storage that I recently built in my latest build video. In my 2 part series I show the steps of creating the top with segmented center and bread board ends as well as building the carcass and a drawer big enough to hold all my blankets. This...
  3. Oak Blanket Chest

    This trunk is constructed of oak walnut and goncalo alves wood. The inlays are all goncalo alves wood, it has pinned box joints which I used 3/8" walnut dowels for and it is finished with gloss polyurethane. The front of the lid has a V shaped inlay, it is copper wire layed in the cutout then...
  4. Solid White Oak Hope Chest - a lot of Dovetails

    I think this is one of the projects that I am the proudest of. I milled all of the White Oak from a large 6' log that a friend gave me. I dried the wood and waited for the day that my Roubo Bench was completed, so I would test my hand cut dovetails. I will say that leading up this this project -...
  5. Pine Storage Chest

    This is a large pine wood chest that I designed and built just before the holidays. I wanted a design with legs that was easy to build, and this is what I came up with. I started by making 4 frames and connected them to the legs, then cladded the entire thing with tongue and groove paneling...
  6. Blanket/Cedar chest

    My son got married in October and he and the new DIL requested a blanket/cedar chest as a wedding gift. I got the project started in December and finished in February. Wasn't rushing to get it done and was surprised it took about 85 hours to finish. Seems like a lot more work that two 40 hour...

  8. Blanket Chest

    This is a blanket chest that I built as a wedding present for my daughter. Her mother handmade a quilt to go with it. As usual, there were many new experiences for me. The plans came from Tommy MacDonald's article in Fine Woodworking. I bought the special beading bit, but ended up not using it...
  9. Cherry Blanket Chest

    This is the first woodworking project I ever started. I say "started" because it was not the first I finished. It was supposed to be a Christmas present for my wife and I guess it kind of was, even if it was a year late. I learned a lot and I could definitely do better in the future, but I'm...
  10. Blanket Chest

    This is an older project of mine, now residing with a son and daughter in law in California. It was a plan from Fine Woodworking that many people built, with a frame structured of wedged, double tenons, and panels set into grooves in the rails on all sides. The original was quite large, and I...
  11. Blanket Chest

    This is actually and old project I built about ten years ago,but since I'm new here, and it's one of the nicer, or at least bigger things I've built I figured I show it off. Except for the hinges, there is no hardware or metal fasteners and except for the 2"x2" legs being glued up from 1" stock...
  12. Mock up

    This is still very rough. Still alot of work to go. I dont normally do mock ups but I wanted to get the bugs out before I started knockin these out.

Live edge on the back of the lid and a natural handle on the front left from where a knot fell out. My brother built...
  14. Cherry & Cedar Blanket Chest, first furniture project

    I'm still relatively new to woodworking. This is the first project that I'm truly happy with. I learned a lot, and can't wait to put my learning to the test on my next project. The chest is made from aromatic cedar and cherry, and held together largely by pocket screws (I know, I know, pocket...
  15. A Trim Carpenter's Tool Box

    I built this tool box way back in 1986 out of Oak plywood and solid oak 3/4×1" edge banding and brass screws. It has two large dovetailed oak drawers, 3 ft. deep that go under two 2'x4' boxes that are screwed together. There is a tool organizer made of solid oak inside that holds saw blades...
  16. Blanket Chest

    My wife volunteered me to build a blanket chest for the schools charity gala event :blink: She said it had to look like the treasure chest from last year, but larger…. and the top had to be the same, but no shiny brass hardware this time and I had to put the nails in it again…. :blink: I asked...
  17. Cedar Blanket Chest for my mom

    After I made blanket chests for my two brothers and sister-in-laws as wedding presents, my mom really wanted one. So I made her a cedar blanket chest; She loves it. Last picture is a "jig" I made to cut an undercut on the back for the piano hinge. Thanks Wood: aromatic eastern red cedar...

  20. Toybox / Blanket Chest

    So glad to finally get this one off my bench. It's been far too long in the making. I built it for another Air Force member who "bought my services" at a charity fundraiser around Thanksgiving '08. He took awhile to decide what he wanted me to build, but I started building it almost a year...
