  1. Bedside Book Shelves

    So, on the heels of my "downsizing my woodworking hobby" posts, it's only fitting that I post a woodworking project, right? This is one of those "Hey honey, do you think you could make something like this?" projects. To which question I of course answered, "Yes!", and then proceeded to...
  2. Nursery: window seat, bookshelves and desk.

    I finished this nursery room last year. It was my first try at cabinetry and took about 3 months of spare time. I used birch plywood (would do MDF if painting again) and then poplar for all the trim. It was also my first shot at making 5 piece doors, drawers and all that fun stuff. I fell in...
  3. Walnut & Copper Pipe Book Shelves

    I made these shelves for a client. They're made from 4/4 walnut and from construction-grade, three-quarter inch (L) copper pipe. More than 200 solders are included in this seven-shelf unit. Shelves are fully removable for ease of moving. Unit measures 94" high x 40" wide x 12" deep. Because of...
  4. Bookcases for my office, finally!

    This has been an ongoing project for me for some time now. I have needed shelves in my office for years and my wife has been very patient with me. They are made from White oak, with the center 2 shelves being adjustable. Dimensions are 11×37 3/4×41, I made a production of 4 cases. That's the...
  5. Built-In Library

    I had always wanted to have a built-in library in our family room and last summer I decided to take the money and "Just Do IT" as Nike would say. Since we had just installed a new figured hickory floor using 5" solid hickory the previous fall, we thought that any type wood that we used for the...
  6. Pivoting Shoe Storage and MORE … mostly scrounged FREE wood •

    Sept 25, 2013 What started out as a request from the Queen for a place to store the shoes … … evolved into a wall of free standing shelves and a place for the flat screen TV! To make moving these units into place easier, they were made in 2 sections that got screwed together once in place...
  7. KIDS PICTURE BOOKS SHELVES

    I made those shelves and letter sign as donation to one humanitarian association ''FROM BIG HEART FOR LITTLE HEART'' who is dealing with kids with heart diseases. Those shelves and letter sign were made as decoration of their hospital apartment. Shelves were made of 20mm firwood, 80cm wide...
  8. Book shelf and Mantel cap

    Nice little project I did for a customer of mine. They had just the surround with the flutted sides including plinth blocks and capitals (as you can see in the before picture). They were unsure how to cap it off, and wanted to add the built-in book shelves to each side. Built the boxes out of...
  9. Pottery Barn-inspired Bookcase

    My first standalone furniture project is nearly complete. The piece is a painted bookcase, designed to match my daughter's Pottery Barn bedroom set. This project came about because my daughter's bedroom set didn't have a matching bookcase, and her books didn't look so hot stacked up on the...
  10. Church office Library

    A local church, Coram Deo, needed a library in their new offices. We had just what they were looking for. Ninety feet of built-in maple bookshelves on two walls make a gorgeous church library. They were looking for a very minimalist look so we decided a floating shelf design was best. With...
  11. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I didn't think that when I joined Lumberjocks that I would have been so interested as to stick around for three years and made as many posts as I have (12,676). I have enjoyed every minute of it and like welcoming the new jocks as they join up. Now I need to get back out to the shop and get...
  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Attached is a picture of my plans. I want to build two pieces for furniture for my cramped apartment living. Short summary of my idea of furnature; I love the minimalistic look, but also very bold and well built. I don't like all the skinny, cheaply built Ikea furniture. So for this project, I...
  13. Blogs
    Christmas 2013 Finally finished up all the Christmas presents, I hope!! Cork Trivets for some of the nurses at my doctor's office- Stirring spoon and spaghetti spoon sets for a couple of friends who cook- A walnut pen for a friend in return for the wood given to me- Table top wine bottle...
  14. Woodworking Skill Share
    Making some doors for a friend and I'm a little concerned with the size. The doors are 67" tall and 15" wide. They are typical rail and stile…a rail at the top and bottom and stiles on either side. My friend does not want any additional rails in the middle of the door and I'm worried that it...
