    Dear Santa, I know I haven't written in a while, been super busy being a grown-up and all, you know how it goes… but now I have two little guys that are completely enamored with you. You bring joy into our home two months out of the year and I thought it would be awesome if I worked for you the...

    More pictures below… The first two pics are the before, and the rest are over the duration of the project. These pictures are about 3 years old, I found them on my old computer the other night. This was my first attempt at remodeling something on the house I bought about 4.5 years ago. About...

    This was a set of three cherry built-ins I did for a client. She had knee walls in her daughters bed room and wanted to utilize the space. She wanted to be able have drawers for clothes as well as shelves for books. I am happy with the solution I came up with.
  5. Built-ins

    These built-ins were built for friends. After measuring I had no time to build the unit for a few months. When it was completed, I went to have dinner and then install them. While we were having dinner they asked about the price of the units. I gave them a price of about $3200.00 with free...
  6. Built-ins

    For a lot of members, this project would be no big deal, but as a wood worker with less than a year career this was my Super bowl. We had two recessed areas around our fire place that I always thought would be perfect for this and before I did wood working, we hired a guy to build our mantle...
  7. Built-In Dining Room Benches with Storage

    Hey everyone! It's been awhile. I just finished installing these dining room bench seats today and wanted to share. These were built in the shop, then delivered and installed. The basic construction is 3/4" sanded (cabinet, paint grade) plywood with solid Poplar for some parts such as the ledge...
  8. Recessed Hall Shelves for my Favorite Client

    I have a lot of great clients, but my favorite is my wife, Marianne. Unfortunately, just as the cobbler's son has no shoes, the woodworker's wife has no custom furniture! Well, I'm trying to start to change that … at least a little. One step in that directon: I just completed these shelves in...

  10. Built-In Desk

    I do love me some built-ins!! Architectural elements add a personality and a craftsmanship to your home that freestanding furniture can't do on it's own. That's why I'm always looking for an excuse to build some! A perfect example is our living room, which is a long rectangle & our furniture...

  12. Built-ins with window seat (how to fix a leaky window)

    When we bought this house 20 years ago I replaced the windows with inexpensive vinyl ones. Eventually, the miters in the vinyl frames came unglued and would leak if the rain hit them the right way. We decided to replace the window (6' wide by 3' high) with an Andersen slider. When we pulled...
  13. Designing Woodworking Projects
    My husband and I just bought a mid century modern house and we are planning a reno to update the house but also to maintain the style. We'd like some dining room built-ins and bathroom vanities that have veneer faces on drawers/cabinet faces but finding someone that does this had been difficult...
  14. Finishing
    I know that I'm supposed to use mineral oil type finishes on cutting boards but WHY? Why can't I use poly or lacquer or shellac or whatever, as long as it has plenty of time to cure. I've read articles with opposing views on this subject but I would like the opinion of all you cutting board guys.
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    For a frameless style built-in drawer in a bedroom that will hold clothes, how much shorter than the carcass opening and drawer front can I practically build the drawer sides and rear? Any rules of thumb? Thinking mostly 6-9" deep drawer fronts/carcass cavity openings.

    I hope you all don't mind a newbie leaning on several of you for your expertise. This is my first post, and I'm only about 3 months into woodworking at all. Caught the bug (woodworking bug) during Covid, and am hooked. To justify the expense of all my new tools, I had to agree with the "boss"...

    I'm nearing the stage where I need to make a decision on the countertop. These are for the family room, so the top will get very little if any, use. The dimension of the top will be approximately 85 long" x 26" deep. I'm planning on using birch plywood - but, I had originally designed it for...

    Bar Tops I'm finding out the hard way, that in order to become a good finisher I need to be an even better refinisher! This has been a long road. I started out using a brush-on spar varnish and quickly realized that there had to be a better way. Now, there is nothing wrong with a brush-on...
