  1. Cherry Shaker Style Bookcase

    My first lumberjocks project. This case is pictured with the final coat(hopefully) of poly. It took a little over a month to complete and that was working everyday in the morning for a few hours before work at 2 pm. This is also my first comissioned piece. I guess i could be considered a pro now...
  2. Restored Pembroke drop-leaf Table

    This is a mid-1900's Pembroke table. It has a leather top. My shop cat had to get in the picture. It was really rough when I got it from my neighbor. Shellaced top with multiple water stains and dings. I used lots of TLC and denatured alcohol to remove all the old shellac, clean everything and...

  4. Clean or Dirty? Dishwasher Sign-Hand Carved

    Here is a project that I made for our new washing machine. I took a piece of quarter inch yellowheart and made transferred a clean/dirty design onto it. Then I carved out the letters and used a shallow gouge to chamfer the edge a little. The letters were fairly small, so I used a toothpick to...
  5. Simple Tablet Stand from a 2x4

    I built a new desk! ( . . . which I'll post later) I needed something to hold my tablet while I enjoy some multi-screen goodness. This is a really simple solution I came up with: A really clean chunk of quarter-sawn douglas from a 2×4, a small hole, a dado on one side the width of a USB cable...
  6. Ironic Cherry Cabinet

    The irony in this cabinet without doors is that it is made almost entirely from cabinet doors. It is made with cherry with hickory shelves. All the parts were cabinet doors I got for a dollar a piece at a discontinued parts sale at my work. Each side is three cherry doors doweled together...
  7. Former Troop's Shadowbox

    I was asked to build a shadowbox by a former troop; he said that he wanted to keep it simple but wanted a dark wood. After several conversations and knowing what I did of him, I talked to my wood dealer and picked up a piece of Ovangkol (Shadua). While I had never worked with this wood before...
  8. Solid Red Oak Workbench- Mobile on Wheels

    Hi all, Happy Memorial Day 2010. Just finished my new bench. This one is a combination of ideas from the various benches I've seen on LJ's. I wanted something that was very solid but still able to move around the shop easily. After making the wheel outriggers for my Nova lathe, it was time...
  9. Andy style Art Box

    My first attempt at an Andy style Art Box, they are made of Maple and Purple Heart. Each one has their own flaws but overall I'm happy how they turned out. A BIG thanks to Andy for his great instructions.

  11. Bench with Storage #2

    Another bench with storage, built from 2×12's and 1×6's. I used thinner stock for the rails this time in order to maximize the inside width. The corners are again pegged with dowels, this time 2 different sizes per corner because they are what I had on hand. The lid on this bench is hinged, just...
  12. Glue caddy

    While working on my box for the box swap I kept having bottles of glue in the way. Once I shipped off the box, I started to clean up my workbench, and discovered over ten bottles of glue, plus a couple bottles of dye and other liquids that really need to be corralled into a single place. So I...
  13. Toy Box

    I just finished my 7 week old sons toy box. It's made from some cherry that was giving to me from my father in law. The joinery consist of threw, half blind, & sliding dovetails. The actual toy box is constructed with threw dovetails and the small sliding box is constructed with half blind...
  14. Pens and pencils

    I bought a lathe a couple months ago and started turning. I'm very new to this but picking it up quick. I mainly wanted tot get into selling some pens and pencils to make a little extra money. I've sold 7 so far and working on building up a stock for shows or w/e. It's a lot of fun and gives you...
  15. Shaker Adjustable Bookshelf in Reclaimed White Pine

    I just finished this bookshelf for a friend who is completing his masters degree in theology. Over the course of the past few years he has collected lots of books! I found some white pine that was removed from a church steeple during a renovation. After lots of sanding, there are still some...
  16. Oak Picture Frame

    I wanted this to be a little on the rustic side to compliment the saddle, so I milled boards from a recently fallen oak. I applied CA glue throughout the cracks in the bark to stabilize it. Then I applied 3 coats of Waterlox, Satin finish over the entire frame. Decided not to miter the...
  17. Dog Steps

    After perusing the web, a coworkers' wife was in search of a set of dog steps for their new puppy; she messaged me after seeing some of my previous work and wanted to know if I'd be interested in building a set for her. I searched the web as well looking at designs and prices, and after some...
  18. Clamp rack

    I built this rack to hold my varied styles of clamps (including two old clamps I inherited from my Dad) as well as bucket of c-clamps. It is made from one poplar board and a bunch of scraps. No joinery just lap joints, screws, dowels and glue. I have a few larger pipe clamps that hang on the...
  19. Racing Stripes Cribbage Board

    This cribbage board marks a couple of firsts for me, my first cribbage board and my first time completing a successful cribbage board using the Rockler's cribbage board template. Butternut with Granadillo racing stripes sealed with boiled linseed oil. I'm not happy with the tearout from the...
  20. Another cribbage board

    I had posted the board on the right and went back out to the shop with the full intention of cleaning it until I saw this piece of walnut (I had been wondering where I had put it). I quickly ripped it down to size and created the cribbage board you see now. Both boards were finished with...
