  1. Countertop with old wood

    This old cabinet on the porch had a laminate top that was peeling off, so I got some old 1×6 pine at the reuse warehouse and made a new countertop. The boards were fairly straight so I just planed the edges a bit to get a fresh glue surface, then glued them up, took the glue off and stained it...

    Ok everyone, as if my first surprise swap gift wasn't enough, I just can't help myself I guess. This one was a late entry but still counts I think. It went to builtinbkyn (Bill). I put everything in the shop aside last weekend to rush this out. It could be better (sorry Bill) but it's what I...
  5. New kitchen...finally

    Replaced old laminated kitchen cupboards with solid hickory. Did not want to change sink base area, so we ordered cabinet fronts only. Worked out great. The only thing was, I had to build by own drawers…and, yes, they are 24" deep. I used a lock joint using the router. Simple to do, only 1...

  7. Kitchen Countertop refinish

    When the house was purchased (1910 Craftsman), the kitchen counter top had brown & blue ceramic tiles, 6" sq, with white grout. It was hideous tile, and the grout job was worse.

  10. Honey Locust Breakfast Bar Island Countertop

    A friend commissioned me to build a kitchen breakfast bar that needed to match their table made of an unknown tropical species. It measures roughly 10' x 10' and 21" wide. I used a 3 step dye process where I artistically wet sand through the layers using 50/50 spirits and wipe on poly as the...
  11. Wooden Trivet Set

    The original idea for the Fish Trivet came from Popular Woodworking. I modified it by reducing the thickness (for esthetics), and created a set of three different sizes to accommodate a variety of large and small serving dishes (meat, potato and vegetable). The set is a wonderful addition to...

  15. 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...
  16. End Grain Board Purpleheart & Lyptus

    I saw this design online and wanted to have a go at making my own. A very experimental project for me really. I just used remnants of previous projects and the wood selection would not have been my first choice. I gifted the board to my cousin as I rarely sell my work.

    Here's a project where we wanted to make the old wood look new. We have a pile of red oak I've been making countertops and tables from. Here I laminated a bunch of 3/4×2" strips together to create a long grain butcher block countertop. It sure is nice having a widebelt sander for projects like...
