  1. No, it is not a coffin!

    I just finished this cherry blanket chest / dressing bench for delivery tomorrow. The dimensions are: 60" long by 24" x 24" I used birch plywood for the bottow and a light cherry oil finish just to kind of even out the color inconsistancies. I finished it with semi-gloss poly. Now, if I can...
  2. Heart Pine Corner cabinet

  8. Outdoor storage Chest

    Last weekend I finished an outdoor cedar chest for storing our patio cushions in. Simple box, mortised joints. The main panel of each side floats in a mortise. I left the side slats as wide as each board would allow instead of cutting them all the same width…seemed like a better use of the...
  9. Repurposed cabinet

    While stationed in Wales many years ago I built a solid White Ash cabinet for my component stereo system. It was our only entertainment contact with the wider world because American televisions did not work there. Now it is obsolete and in the way. I did not want to throw it out. The thought...

These are items I build for my customers with there...
