  1. Craftsman Sliding Closet Doors

    Built these sliding closet doors for my complete house remodel project that's been going on the past 3 years. Built with Quarter sawn white oak. Laminated stiles with a finished dimension of 1-3/8" thick. My first attempt at making doors (besides cabinet doors) and it went really well. I...
  2. Banister

    On this piece I wanted to showcase some great figured wood. The client is a art lover so we wanted to frame these book matched maple panels like a gallery of art work. The panels looked good with a natural wood frame but putting the black laquer on really put the focus on the great figured...
  3. His and Hers Longboards

    I made these longboards for my sister-in-law and her new husband for their wedding present. They both share the libra sign which is a scale or balance. I felt that the balancing act in marriage tied in nicely to their sign and the skateboards. I presented it to them this past weekend in front...
  4. Double bookmatched cutting board

    Here are my latest cutting boards. Pics 1,2,3,&4 are what I call a double bookmatched board. Final dimensions are 14"x20"x2". It was made by assembling a bookmatched board with dimension of 7"x20"x4" then cutting it in half to do the second bookmaching. I have been playing around with this...
  5. Endgrain Bookmatch Part Deux

    This looks to me like a rope running through the board. I just had to try it. The entire cutting board is from one piece of walnut from my scrap bin. I took pics along the way to show how I did it. Picture 2 shows the piece of walnut after the first rip. Note the sapwood on the left hand...

  7. Maple and Walnut Clipboards

  8. Arts & Craft box

    More from the beetle pine. Dimensions are 24"x12"x12". You can see the pink streak in the top. I would guess about 1 out of 5 or 6 trees I cut i find some of the red or pink streaks. Just a different fungus the beetles carry. Wish I could find more. Thanks for looking

    Hackberry Stash Box. This little box was a challenge….....I was give a small piece of Hackberry….my first time with this species of wood…..and used almost every square inch of it to make this box.

  10. Bookmatching Mirror Jig

    I had this leftover scrap of mirror after cutting the mirror for my Cypress Tree Mirror. I decided to use it as a tool for checking the bookmatching potential of interesting lumber. So I cut out a scrap of plywood that included a handle and a hole to hang it by. I routed the edges of the plywood...
  11. Bookmatched antique heart pine cornhole boards

    I'm relatively new to LJ, just discovered the projects section so I'll post up a few of my favorites. I built these for myself, they drove me to buy a riser block for my bandsaw! I started with rough cut 2×10, what I actually resawed after trimming was right at 8" I cut from each side on the...

  14. Master bedroom remodel

    Some weeks ago, I asked for some feedback on window trim. This project is what that was related to.

  17. Jane's Jewelry Box

    Just another jewelry box - this one was for my step-daughter's birthday. This was my first go at building one and, as is often the case, I learned quite a bit about what NOT to do next time. Overall, I was pleased with how it turned out. The main box is made of cherry; the pull out tray is...

  20. Christmas Eve Board

    A few years ago on Christmas Eve, I made a couple of quick cutting boards to fulfill a request by my wife for small cutting boards. This year she had requested a larger one (I thought), so at about 5pm on the 24, I took this 3×6 timber from the stack on the front porch, cut a chunk off and...
