  1. Adirondack Chair No glue or fasteners!

    This is an Adirondack style chair which is assembled using no metal fasteners or glue. The one in the photo is constructed using MDF and cut on my CNC at about 2/3 scale which is the perfect size for a child. The last two pieces that go in look like little keys under the seat. Once those go in...
  2. Last minute easy gift: Step Stools

    I build a lot of step stools benches, stools, and shelves are easy builds and great gifts for the family. These take about 3 hours each to make after the wood is milled and ripped. I have one in the garage, and one in the house. I've found that freinds with high sitting pick up trucks really...
  3. Carved quilt rack gift

    This is a quilt rack made from white oak. My mom just turned 70 and she's an avid quilter. The carving was roughed out using my CNC and then cleaned up and enhanced with hand tools. The rack breaks down for storage easily. Finish is just good old polyacrylic (3 coats) as I wanted it to stay...

    I recently made this Love sign for my Sister and her Husband. I design the sign in Vectric Aspire and carved on the X-Carve CNC Router. I carved the sign out of a piece of White Pine wood, took a wire brush over it to give it a more of a Rustic look. Then I stained it with Dark Walnut stain...
  8. Cork screw holder

    Another gift I made for Chrismas for the girlfriend. I used a Haas CNC at work (over lunch breaks, again). The design was pretty easy, but the mounting and machining was tricky. Because of the low cuts, and contouring of the mill cutter, fastening the wood blank to a vise was tricky! Third...

  20. Picture Frame Shelf

    The gold frame was purchased from Goodwill. It had a painting in it with a mat that I removed. The wood is HD pine board; the kind that is strips of pine glued together.
