  1. Recycled Pallet Campaign Desk

    This desk was made for a client using a recycled pallet from a local construction site. The pallet was made from Austrailian Pine, some type of cedar as far as I can tell. Very beautifully raggy wood textures. The client wanted something with a "campaign twist" on it, so I added the canvas drop...
  2. Side table Plant Stand thing

    A fold up side table or plant stand thing losely copied from an antique I saw somewhere. All reclaimed lumber. The top is glued up from some oak scraps, I made good use of the gap bed feature on my old Delta Rockwell 16-111 lathe. The legs are mystery wood form a crate or something. The...
  3. Not a Blanket Chest

    Opening Credits: Special thanks to RGTools whose excellent advice and patience got me through a serious case of brain freeze. Anything you approve of in pic 5 is because of him; the mistakes are mine. This is not a blanket chest, of course, but it was when I started planning on building it...
  4. Simple Campaign-style Desk

    This was one of my first wood projects a few years ago (and shows it, I'm sure…). I needed a desk, and wanted something in a minmalist, campaign-style based on some I'd seen elsewhere. I was unimpressed by what was at the furniture stores, and we'd just moved into our first house, so I finally...
  5. Campaign Saw Storage

    After reading Chris Schwarz's Campaign Furniture, I was inspired to build something in that style. We just didn't need any more furniture in our house. I have been struggling with what to do with my growing collection of handsaws and figured I would combine those ideas into a campaign saw nest...
  6. CD Cabinet

    I made this a while back. But Spring Cleaning is in progress and I decided to take some pictures. The carcase is made using the "Approved 'Norm' Method" of ply sides, internal frames, housing (dado) joints nailed through and a back glued and pinned in place. The drawers are simple trays mounted...
  7. Roorkhee Chair

    Roorkhee chair, based on the design in Campaign Furniture by Chris Schwarz. Mahogany, finished with clear shellac and black wax.
  8. Mahogany Campaign Chest

    Here is a small chest I recently finished. The sides are mahogany, the bottom is cedar and the top panel is book matched ziricote. I rubbed out the polyurethane finish with steel wool and wax. The style of the box reminds me of campaign furniture. Thanks for looking.
  9. Nightstands Ready for an Expedition

    The American Black Walnut Campaign Floating Nightstands We have a 2 year old and a new one on the way and I am compelled to do what they call nesting. I need to be allowed to craft a nest for my partner to whelp in. For real though, how weird would it be if your wife disappeared under the...
  10. Site Help and Suggestions
    part Hello lumber jock community. I'd love some advise and pics if possible on this. I've been asked to build a conference room table for a small company. I'm on a low budget but want to obviously make a quality top. I made the pedestals already but struggling with the top and budget. My...
  11. Designing Woodworking Projects
    So I'm planning my Campaign Desk Build. Although I ultimately dream of making one out of solid Cherry, Walnut, or Mahogany, I first would like to make one primarily with paint and plywood and live with it for a few years and get a sense of what I like and what to change before spending the...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am making a Roorkee Chair/Safari Chair, and I'm trying to find a better option for the hardware used for the pivoting uprights that form the seat back. Chris Schwarz, who's done an amazing job renewing interest in this design, recommended a 3" long, 5/16" diameter carriage bolt captured...
  13. Finishing
    Hi all i am almost to the finishing stage of a large credenza I am building. The piece is primarily black walnut. I was going use the sanding slurry method to finish it off to seal the pores. I have had some success with this method in the past but on small projects. Could anyone offer any...
