  5. Another Stool?

  6. Cottonwood wine rack

    This one really pleasantly surprised me. After I drilled the holes (3 1/2" hole saw and 1/2" straight router bit to hog it out), I was really disappointed because the holes drilled from each side didn't quite line up. As a result, the whole piece was destined for the firewood pile until I got to...
  7. Nakashima Inspired Coffee Table

    A friend of mine wanted a way to control/store all this electronic remotes he has strewn over his end table. He offered a couple slabs of rough cut walnut if I would make him this caddie. After trimming off the sapwood and wood rot areas I didn't have the width I needed for the back. I...
