  1. A pair of frames for the family, and an experiment in photographic lighting.

    Sorry for the repeat shots. I thought the difference between just incandescent lighting and incandescent and fluorescent lighting was interesting. The second and fifth are incadescent alone. I'm shooting in the dark, umm both metaphorically and in reality. Hooray for the equinox. The days...
  2. MY FIRST NIGHT STAND MADE OUT CEDAR

    THIS IS ANOTHER PROYECT MADE OUT OF CEDAR, FOR MY HOME,,,,,,
  3. Patience Clock

    I built this Patience Clock to remind myself that "Only those who have the patience to do simple things perfectly ever acquire the skill to do difficult things easily." Friedrich von Schiller (1759-1805), dramatist, essayist and poet. The symbol is a Kanji character that represents patience...
  4. Pierced Fretwork Pendants

    I recently made a trade of my work for a Hegner scroll saw, which I feel should properly be called an electric fretsaw. It is to my Tradesman scroll saw as Rolls Royces are to Yugos. I have only begun to experiment with its capabilities and possibilities. These pendants are about 3/8" thick...
  5. Game boxes

    I made a Chinese checkers board for a present and had a some extra practice and off cut pieces left over. I saw one of our fellow wood workers postings and decided to make these. One side is a cribbage board and the other two person Chinese checkers. I used finger joints on the corners and a...

  7. Bedside Tables with Floating Top

    I built these two small tables for our bedroom going for an asian feel. I like the floating top idea, and wanted to use the bridle joints at the top of the legs as well as the open shelf on the lower portion to keep the feeling of simplicity throughout. Pine and Red Oak, so they're small and light.
  8. Asian Inspired Picnic Trays

    This is a picnic "basket" inspired by 19th Century Chinese meal carriers. My understanding is that each tray would hold a complete meal and each tray was unstacked and served. Long story short a pin that runs through the handle secures the top and subsequently each tray to the the base of the...
  9. Chinese cabinet

    Measures 1350mm high, 800mm wide, 520mm deep. I made this cabinet as one of my final class projects last year. The brief was to incorporate an alternate material (in my case steel) and design aspects from the Gothic style or a bridge. I managed to fit all that in and also to play with Chinese...

  11. The "Tea Table", seemed like a good idea at the time.

    A very serious collector of Chinese tea collectables commissioned me for a "live edged" mesquite table in order to host his imported "burl" tea service. Project allowed me to venture outside the lines in creating a live edge piece with inset keys. In the course of design and re-design as well...
  12. Maloof-Inspired Black Walnut Sculpted Glider

    I just put the final coat of Danish oil on this rocker/glider I built for my sister and brother-in-law to celebrate the newest member of the family, born last December. The Black Walnut came from a tree that was struck by lightning in my parents' neighbor's back yard in West Virginia. The back...
  13. Incence Holder

    With this years Christmas coming to an end and being on the verge of 2012….wow….hard to believe, I found a project that sets a positive tone for the upcoming year. This is my version of an incence holder made from maple stock and finished in oak colored stain. A bit rough here and there (oh...
  14. Excalibur Murphy Bed | Custom

    This a Murphy bed that was completed on 10-31-2007. It is our Excalibur style, which has become one of the more favorite style. It was built form Alder wood, which has also become very popular. The flute molding on the sides are what make this a very attractive Murphy bed. This fluted...
  15. Rustic Chinese Character Mirror

    One day at a show in Park City an elderly couple approached me with this metal rusted art of the characters, mounted in some funky brown semi-old window. "Could you do something with this? something rustic" she said. This is weathered wood and lodge pole pine, skip peeled. Behind the characters...
  16. Hand Tools
    Last year I started down the slippery slope with hand planes - and since then have bought 20+ bench planes, one rabbet (rebate) plane, and a Stanley 148 tongue and groove match plane. Continuing down the addictive slope, I'm looking at hollows and rounds. As a aside, if anybody has too many...
  17. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Somebody was wondering where to find an ancient Chinese hammer a while back. I left a search on ebay. One showed up : http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310177100771
  18. Woodworking Skill Share
    Ok, stupid question. What is lacquer stain and how is it different than regular oil-based stain? Does it mean that you don't need a poly topcoat after applying the lacquer stain?
  19. Joinery
    Hi Folks, I have decided that rather than ruining a project, I should use a lot of wood scraps to learn and practice various joints. I am enamored with Japanese and Chinese joinery, but figure I have to crawl before I can run! First question, does anyone know of a good book on Chinese joinery...
  20. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Well this weekend I finally started building the new kitchen cabinet doors and I've got a few quick questions about installing glass into the frame. For a little background the doors are shaker style cut with rail and stile bits. The top cabinet doors are going to have frosted glass instead of...
