  1. Sofa Table with Granite Insert

    I was selected to build a Mission style sofa table with some granite scraps from the clients kitchen. I used elements of Mission furniture such as through tenons, side slats, shelf, similar dimensions, and corbels, but that is where the similarities end. The top and shelf are cherry with...
  2. Chinquapin Bread Box

    My husband requested a breadbox one day. I have never owned one, but thought it made a good project for this semester. After looking at a million pictures I decided on this design as there were several learning elements included. all 3/8" chinquapin with brass hinges, box joints. Made the...
  3. Chinquapin Tool Tote

    I usually like to carve the handle for these totes, but I opted for a simple oak dowel this time. It works. I just love the way chinquapin takes a finish. After sanding thru the grits it is a nebulous white box. Wipe it down with some Danish Oil and it turns into an amazing piece. Chinquapin...
  4. Raccoon in the Tree

    This intarsia project is made out of Oregon white oak, black walnut, aspen and chinquapin. I dug this piece of oak out of the firewood pile after work one day and let it air dry for a year before I decided what I wanted to do with it. I routed out the knot and made the raccoon head fit to it to...
  5. Chinquapin Modified Roubo WorkBench

    I wanted to post up a few pics of my Modified Roubo style workbench made from chinquapin. I used the article in FineWoodworking's annual Tools & Shops (issue #230) as reference for the design and for the most part size. My finished Bench dimensions are: 84" Long x 24-1/2" Deep x 4" Thick and 35"...
  6. Business card holders

    Here are a couple of business card holders- I made five but two of them found homes before I had the where-with-all to take pics. The striped one is zebrawood on one side and walnut on the other, sandwiched between maple. Dark one is walnut both sides with maple in the middle and the final...
  7. Christmas Boxes

    I made a business card holder for my son-in-law and needed a box to put it in! (Pic 2) Business card holder is tan oak and rosewood. Box is 75 year old reclaimed white oak. Tried my hand at making a couple small boxes with lift lids out of scrap too small to make anything else with and too...
  8. 5 Cribbage Boards

    Made my first Cribbage boards. I made a template out of some 1/4" plexi that I had lying around- then found it was too nice to use as a drill guide so I just used it as a marking guide. Made the all bases out of scrap- bottoms were some 1/4" plywood with edge banding of oak. All have rare earth...
  9. Chinquapin Breakfast Bar

    Finished the chinquapin bar- some minor tweaks still but it is in place and drawers are filled. I plan to add a live edge shelf above the tabletop. I hand carved the handles. Stained all with Danish oil and Finished with Profin, except the top which has Deft poly varnish. Still need to attach...
  10. Chloe's blocks

    I have a 2 year old granddaughter. What to make for her Christmas present? While finishing some other small boxes, I loved how the wood felt after the final sanding with 600 grit and wax, buff with steel wool. So I decided to introduce her to all the myriad types and colors wood can have...
  11. Alan Peters inspired Oak Cabinet

    This cabinet is made from white oak. The shelf inside is Chinquapin and maple. The finish is Danish oil, shellac, and wax. It was designed as a wall cabinet but would be equally effective as a sideboard. The design is simple and straightforward, inspired by the work of Alan Peters. The main...
  12. Two Chess Boards

    My grandson started playing chess with me on my iPad and then abruptly told me I needed a "real" chess set. (He's five.) Since he plays chess with his dad, whose birthday is tomorrow, I thought- I'll make TWO chessboards. (Got the men on ebay from India….) I made it the standard way for...
  13. Designing Woodworking Projects
    So I have completed the Chinquapin breakfast bar portion but I want to attach a shelf. For support I left the two front legs of the bar a bit long. I can then seat the live edge slab of madrone (roughly 2" thick) on top of the legs. My confusion is how to attach it. I have two corbels out of...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've been trawling Craigslist for table saws and trying to keep an eye on discussions here to try to learn what's a good buy and what's a pass. This saw# just turned up, and I can't seem to find any info on the 351.228021 model. The asking price is well out of my price range anyway, but I'm not...
