  1. Counter Stools

    The wife requested a pair of "Counter Stools" for our kitchen. She found a couple of pictures online that she like so I got busy. I used Southern Yellow Pine cut from 2×12x12's from a local lumber yard. Their quality was so much better than from the Orange or Blue Boxes. Nice tight, straight...
  2. Live edge slab counter.

    Just finished doing a live edge counter top. We did this as a full custom from cutting down the tree to milling it to finishing it in the area it is to be installed in. The tree had been standing dead for 2 years and came out at 6 percent moisture when it came off the sawmill. All cracks and...
  3. All Wood Kitchen

    First of all; Thank You Honey for your patience. I hope you feel it was worth it. I've had the vision of an all wood kitchen for about two years. Practicing certain techniques finally allowed me to realize this vision. The actual build of the lower kitchen cabinets took 4 months. (You can...
  4. Custom counter height (ish) table.

    I was asked to build this custom table that sits a hair above the counter and movable so that it can be used close to the counter for breakfast and homework, but also turned out for larger gatherings for people to stand around and socialize. This was my fist table build and I learned a pile...

  6. New Countertop for old cabinets in rental house

    Well, this was a bit of an experiment, I broke the countertop trying to put in a new dishwasher so I decided to use the reuse the under/over mounted sink and rebuild. I wanted to under-mount the sink, but refuse to spend any real money on this rental. (Renters have a sort of sixth sense for...

  10. Custom Bathroom Furniture

    This will also be uploaded to Refurbers but since everything wood was custom made in my shop, I thought I'd post it as a project here. We had an old, and small bathroom with no window as it's located in the center of the house. It was last remodeled in the 70's, had a blue tub with marbleized...
  11. Kitchen Surface

    As my first post, and as a beginner woodworker, this is one of my first projects that I feel at all worthy about sharing. (It's been a lot of learning :) My apartment is a small brooklyn affair, and kitchen space has always been limited. My girlfriend suggested some extra sort of prep-top, so...

    Built 3 base cabinets with drawers and 1 base cabinet with open shelving. Built countertop out of plywood, laminate and birch for the edging. I wanted to make my children a study area in our loft. This is working well as their space for computers, school books, works and as their drop zone.

  15. Black Walnut Kitchen Island Countertop

  18. Kitchen Island Top

    So I put together an island in our kitchen but needed a top. Up in the barn I found some old rough cut cherry that my grandfather had milled some 30 years ago. There wasn't enough thick pieces to make a solid top so what I did was planed the thinner boards down and glued and screwed them to a...
  19. Breakfast Bar

    Our Son and family moved into this house and as most folks; right away wanted to put "Pa" to work making some changes. There was a stub wall between the kitchen and a family room with a very beat up piece of "Hem-Fir" capping it. It wasn't of any use and down right unattractive. So he came up...
  20. Makore / Walnut Counter-Top

    Well I guess this is more of a breakfast bar than a counter-top. I took out the old particle-board w/plastic laminate counter in our kitchen and built a new counter/breakfast bar from Makore and trimmed it in Walnut. I'd never done a counter before so I'll admit I had a few challenges-such as...
