  1. Walnut Curio Cabinet

    This is my first extensive woodworking project and it really challenged my skills. The walnut for the project was given to me by my dad. He had it stored in a shed for the last 25 years. The wood was pretty rough looking and dirty when I got it but, it planed up nicely. I didn't show the rough...
  2. Cherry Corner Cabinet

    I started this corner cabinet maybe three years ago and finally just got all of the divided lights and glass shelves installed. Its loosely based off of a cabinet I saw on The Woodwrights' Shop, which is in turn based off of a classic cabinet located in the metropolitan museum of art. The upper...
  3. Copy of Antique China Cabinet

    One day while I was installing a solid surface counter top in a customers home I noticed an Antique China Cabinet in their dinning room. I really liked the design so I asked and received permission to take pictures of it. I latter studied the pictures and started designing the cabinet in the...
  4. Built-in Birch China Cabinet

    Built of solid birch and birch ply to replace a very old, barely functioning cabinet (see last photo). Finished with 1 lb. cut of shellac to seal, GF American Oak Gel and GF Arm R Seal. Drawers have machine cut dovetails, doors have loose tenons at corners because I was concerned about the...
  5. China Cabinet

    A few years ago, my wife asked me for a curio cabinet for her tea cup collection. A week before Christmas I asked her to come out in the shop and see what I had made. She shook her head and said "Curio cabinet, not china cabinet!". Needless to say, I also had the curio cabinet done by Christmas...
  6. Buffet and Hutch | Farmhouse Style

    This is a Buffet and Hutch that was completed in December 2007. It was designed in a Farmhouse style Buffe look. What gives it that farmhouse look is the combination painted and stained colors, beadboard back and bun feet. It was built mostly from popular and birch. The doors are the one...
  7. China Cabinet

    Clearly there is a conspiracy among digital cameras. I KNOW I took both these photos with the camera in the same position, then corrected the second one when it came out sideways by rotating it, and it STILL uploads sideways. Anyway, this started out as a bookcase. The carcase is 3/4 plywood...
  8. Restored Pine China Cabinet

    Thsi project was a challenge, but it was also a special project that meant a lot to me. My grandparents recieved this cabinet and matching harvest table (post seperate pics of table later) as a wedding gift in 1943. The cabinet sat in the dining room up until the 80's - replaced by new dining...
  9. China Display Cabinet in Cherry

    A variation reproduction of a China Display Cabinet in Pennsylvania Cherry. My Grandma Cleta gave the original cabinet to my mother right after her wedding, and it was passed down through the family to me. Unfortunately, it didn't survive the move down to Florida. So I made a promise to make a...
  10. China Cabinet

    My wife has been wanting a china cabinet since before I got out of the Navy and not long after I bought her two sets of china when I was in Hong Kong. This china cabinet was one of those items I had contemplated buying for a long time. Since I haven't been doing wood working long and most of...
  11. Shop Stool

    Needed a place to sit out in the shop and thought I would try and learn something along the way. Used the pocket hole jig to do all the joinery on this stool. It is just made of Pine and standard 2×4 that I ripped down for the 2×2's. Here is a link to the plans I used: Vintage Bar Stool Since it...
  12. A Pair of Cherry China Cabinets

    The china cabinets are designed to be placed on each side of a bay window. The china cabinets are mirror images of each other, one cabinet with the hinges on the left and one cabinet with the hinges on the right. Each china cabinet is made up of a lower cabinet and an upper cabinet. The lower...
  13. China Cabinet

    This is a china cabinet I made a while back. The material is european steamed beech. I hand sanded between the grain lines to cause a rough wavy texture. Yes, it took forever and a day. Turned out to be worth it. There are stem ware holders in the top section mounted to the bottom of the...
  14. China Cabinet

    Over seven feet wide and quite heavy, all spanish cedar, a lot of Festool dominoes. Now the whole house has a most pleasant aroma.
  15. Mahogany China Cabinet

    I built this for a customer over the summer. All Mahogany veneers and solids with a gel stain and satin lacquer finish. Also included is the initial design sketch i did to get the project underway.
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am wondering if clamping a good tight box joint is really necessary when gluing? If they are tight enough to stay in place when dry fitting, do you need to clamp to have enough pressure to make the glue work? Some adhesives are pressure sensitive and you need to hold pressure for a few...
  17. Wood & Lumber
    Hi there! Im new to the site and am trying to figure out what kind of wood I'm dealing with. We are building a home and using reclaimed lumber throughout the house. We used a mix of hardwoods for my cabinets and pine for the ceiling. We found cool old floor beams from a barn. They were the...

    A little while ago I posted a question on how to make this cut - LINK This I how I did it. Here are four of eight legs roughed out . . . I am making two tables. I then used a 1 ¼ flush\trim bit to form the legs. Am I ever glad I made an extra leg as one of them had some nasty tearout...

    I just acquired a bunch of cedar shakes that were on the roof of my grandparents home. They are 30 years old and are just awesome! Looking for help with project ideas for putting them to use. Give me your ideas.
  20. Finishing
    The family has handed down this china cabinet that is in need of some work. It's a 1950's piece made by Mengel and says "Mengel permanized furniture," on the inside of the drawer. My wife loves this thing and wants to keep the blonde look. I'm at a loss where to start redoing this thing...
