  1. Connecticut Lowboy

    I started building this maybe 3 years ago (time flies) and finally finished it early this summer. Made from plans found in popular woodworking magazine, article by Glen D. Huey. As per the article I think this project was a great intro into building period furniture. Not too complicated as long...
  2. Pennsylvania Desk on Frame

    This Desk on Frame was started at Lonnies Bird's School in Dandridge, TN. His plans orriginally called for a frame to have tapered legs and the desk was drawn up based on a period MA desk. I wanted to have cabriole legs so, with Lonnie's help, I redesigned the frame. I used trifed feet so now I...
  3. Pennsylvania Side Chair

    I made this side chair to go with the Desk on Frame project I posted earlier. This is yet another Lonnie Bird School project. I know many people on this forum are self taught, And believe me, you have my great admiration. But I have loved learning under the watchful eye of a master craftsman...
  4. Writing Desk w/ Cabriole Legs

    This project is the nicest thing I've built to date and includes a few personal firsts- handcut dovetails (drawers period for that matter!), cabriole legs, & upholstery. I let myself get intimidated by these things and it ended up dragging out the progress but I'm finally done :-) My 6yr old...
  5. Experiment in multi-axis turning

    I was asked to make a small occasional table, similar to one posted prior, as shown in the first photo, but with smaller dimensions to accommodate it's permanent location. Taking this opportunity to try something new, I decided to try my hand at off-set turning, also referred to as multi-axis...
  6. Junior Year Grandfather Clock

    This is a Grandfather clock that I just finished at the end of my Junior year in my highschool woodshop. sorry it took me so long to get this one on here. Once again, just like my freshman year nightstand and my sophmore year gun cabinet; the clock was designed and built by myself, following...
  7. Carving a Ball and Claw Foot

    This unique pair of Ball and Claw feet were carved for a commissioned wing back chair for a very petite lady. They were carved in walnut and later ebonized. You can see the carving tutorial at my blog by clicking here
  8. First Posted Project.

    Hi All, Well as you can see by the title this is the first of a few projects I plan to post. The only reason I choose this one is it is current. My wife has wanted new living room furniture for a while. We went to Woodworkers Source and she looked over the entrance wall for the type of wood...
  9. Chippendale Lowboy

    I enjoyed making this piece. Show material is cherry. Interior spices is poplar. Drawers are hand cut dovetails. My first attempt at ball and claw legs. Had a lot of fun. Took my time and I learned how to work the wood as the grain changed. Keep those chisels sharp! I have done a fair amount of...
  10. Walnut Jewelry Armoire

    This is my birthday present this year to my wife, only about three months late. This is made of solid walnut with oak accents. Drawer boxes are maple with SYP bottoms. I didn't photograph the back, but it is raised walnut panels. No plywood was harmed in the making of this project. I am...
  11. Cherry Makeup Vanity

    I had me Wife choose a style for a vanity for me to make over xmas vacation. I was really hoping she'd pick Shaker because of the simplicity, but of course, she chose a traditional design with cabriole legs. Yikes! On the plus side I was "forced" to order a Veritas spokeshave set and some had...
  12. Cabriole Footstool

    I wanted to try my hand at some cabriole legs and I had some offcuts of walnut sitting around from a project I finished over a year ago. A foot stool seemed a little more manageable for a test project than a lowboy or other classic cabriole leg piece, and given how long it ended up taking me I'm...
  13. Queen Anne Lowboy Dressing Table

    Queen Anne Dressing Table Here's my latest project. I got the idea and inspiration while visiting a local cabinetmaker with club members from the "New Jersey Woodturners Association" earlier this year. I joined the club in April and how been wow'ed by them. The guys at the club are one...
  14. Lingerie Chest

    Again, another gift for my wife that I've finally gotten good photos of. The chest is all in cherry. I aquired a lovely board that had swirled black sap lines in it. I cut the drawer fronts so that the hardware is centered on the swirls. A 12' by 8" wide board yeilded the five drawer fronts...
  15. Pennsylvania Dressing Table

    This is a reproduction of a 17th century Pennsylvania Dressing Table that I began at the Lonnie Bird School of Fine Woodworking last April. I finally got around to finishing the project a couple of weeks ago. Although I tested it on some left over scrap from the drawer fronts, the stain is...
  16. Texas Longhorn Desk

    This desk was a first for me in almost every aspect. I was challenged by the cabriole legs and the Texas Longhorn inlay.
  17. Designing Woodworking Projects
    So I have a set of what look like incomplete cabriole legs, in that they don't have an upper stem, nor wings,and the back is flat with threaded inserts. I can't find any designs/ plans for how to make a frame for them. I'm hoping someone may have a suggestion as to how to make a simple...
  18. Blogs
    An introduction Since I already blog at my own domain I did not want to duplicate all of that content here at LumberJocks each time that I made a post. So, I asked Martin if it was appropriate for me to have blog entries here at LumberJocks that link to my own blog. The answer was a...
