  1. Budget Dinning Table - Dimensional Lumber and Concrete

    This is my third project involving concrete and I'm really enjoying finding new possibilities with this material. The cost for my 250 pound table was around $100. Because of the weight, I decided to pour it in place. The structure is made from 2 - 4×4's and 2 - 2×4's. The top is made from one...
  2. Ring Box

    I wanted to make a small ring box. To hold a ring. In a box. I used some really old, really dry walnut that I sized to 1/2". Cut a bunch of tiny tiny dovetails with a thin kerf DT saw. I wanted to use some flooring cut from a old church undergoing renovation. Had to resort to diamond...
  3. Nightstand

    I finally completed my Nightstand for the guest bedroom. Several things that you can say about this piece of furniture, it is heavy and solid as a rock, since it is made from 3/4 inch quarter sawed white oak, even the drawers. I experimented with this unit and I used several different...
  4. Stained concrete and wood fence

    I am redoing my yard of my (new to me) house. this was a painted brick wall with a 5 Inch concrete cap. I made a fence just tall enough to fit under the cap, all scrap wood. As I was staining it red oak i got some on the cream colored concrete. thought it looked good so I did the whole cap...
  5. Hotel front desk

    This is a desk I was asked to design for a hotel we built. The dark panels on the face are actually concrete that is make to look like wood. I made two forms out of rough lumber, left the saw marks in it, sprayed it with form release then experimented with stain. The dark trim is rough pine with...
  6. Outdoor concrete table

    This isn't really a woodworking project but it's the first one that I've finished AND have pictures of. I'll be adding more as I finish them. The tiles are glass, and I added concrete tint to color it. The support frame is made of 4×4 and 2×4 cedar held together by using a Kreg pocket screw...
  7. Kitchen Island Re-enforcement for Concrete Countertop

    So I poured a concrete top for the kitchen island. It turned out pretty good for my first try, but I realized that my cheap factory built cabinets weren't about to support this two inch thick monolithic piece of concrete on top of them. So I was at the lumberyard about to step up to the desk and...
  8. Bubinga Over Marbilized Concrete

    So one day Mike and I wander into a local lumber yard and as usual we ponder over the various interesting slabs of wood. So began the bubinga project last summer … we blogged it so take an interlude trip into the prequel stories here: http://lumberjocks.com/EricMSaperstein/blog/23767 This...
  9. Nightstand

    Wife needed a new nightstand, so this was my first woodworking project since high school shop. Made it to her height specs, she asked for a cubby, and made the 3 drawers smaller to larger according to some golden design rules I found online. I decided on a concrete top to play around with it. I...

  12. Coffee Bar

    I built this coffee bar for my wife's birthday this past fall 2018. (Sorry I never uploaded it) I used concrete to make the countertop and the lower shelf and also added Alexa-enabled an RGBW led light strip to it to help add some ambiance to it and the house. It weighs upwards of 700-800 lbs...
  13. Plant Grow Station from Concrete and Walunt

    I'm making a seed starting grow station from walnut and cement in this one. The LED lights are attached to the walnut shade and suspended from the arm by wire. This makes it easy to adjust the light up and down depending on the needs of the seeds & seedlings. The stand features a bridle joint...

  15. Raising Gardens and Families

    Once I said to my oldest daughter, "I don't want to do things for you, but I would love to do things with you." I think she took offense to that … at first. As time went by, I think she understood what I meant. Life is made up of time spent. Some of the most wonderful time is spent doing...
  16. Ash & Walnut Shaker Clock

    I made this clock some years ago from ash and walnut. I love the Shaker style, but I also like to use contrasting woods. I not sure they would have done it that way. I built this more or less from a mental picture, with no plans or design time, just started with a dial & clockworks and built...
  17. He made the top out of what?

    I do some hobby metal working as a complement to my woodworking and finally saved up to indulge in a bench top lathe. These machines are pretty capable, but lack somewhat in rigidity and mass. As I set about to design a bench for the lathe I came across some discussions on metal working forums...
  18. New Foreman On The Job

    I haven't posted in a while and this may very well be "overkill" but I wanted a semi-permanent spot for my Kreg Foreman pocket hole machine. There are also times when I wanted more bench surface. This seemed to fit both purposes. The center of the bench will accommodate the Foreman and it can be...
  19. Concrete Top/Solid Core Panel Door Executive Desk

    I got this idea from a home blog that I stumbled onto last week. I needed a bigger desk when I moved to the dual monitor setup, and I didn't want to spend a fortune on a nice big cherry or mahogany desk. So, off to the construction remodel resale warehouse. Found this old big unfinished solid...
  20. OV-22 Osprey Gear Display Case

    Being retired Navy and living in a large military area I get some pretty unusual requests. This project was a going away gift from the Officers at a local OV-22 squadron to their Commanding Officer. The gear inside is from one of the transmissions in the aircraft. (The part in the display is a...
