  1. House Sign

    House sign for a co-worker that is building a new home, Scroll-Saw for the most part. Flag pattern is from Feburary 2002 Wood Magazine. One Shot Metallic Gold paint for the background, Hickory frame. I just purchased the DeWalt Scroll Saw and this is one of my first projects using it. Flying...
  2. Bread box

    This is a bread box I made for the wife. Once again, just pine, mostly bicuit joined. Painted with flat latex, distressed, stained with dark walnut minwax and covered with polyacrylic. Simple construction, but in keeping with our country style, and believe it or not, I have actually had a few...
  3. country shelf

    My seven year old daughter wanted a shelf for her "precious things" and I just bought a Dewalt jigsaw, so out popped this country shelf. Wish I had a spindle sander. It's 24×5". It's pine and not finished as she wants to paint it pink, white and purple. I am tempted to post her finished...
  4. Farm House Table

    All lumber used for this table came from a local farm that the owner was born and raised in. Her parents passed away and she inherited it. Her husband decided before it was demolished he wanted to use the wood for a present for her to keep those memories alive. She is 65 years old and her...
  5. Whirligig - Country Railroading

    [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] This is my entry for the 2014 Whirligig Wars. A man tries to push a cow off the track, but he only manages to push its hind end up. Meanwhile an engine waits for the track to be cleared. This was a bit of a problem in these parts over a hundred years ago. The...
  6. Country Kitchen Trash Can Keeper

    My wife is really into the country furniture, so I built her this trash can keeper in a country style to hid our plan white plastic trash can we have in the kitchen. I built it out of 1 4X8 sheet of 3/4" plywood and then painted it a dark wine color to match the accents on our new wall paper. We...
  7. North Carolina Blanket Chest

    The joinery for the case and feet are hand cut dovetails. Both the front and the lid are made from single, wide, walnut boards. The lid has bread board ends mitered to front edge molding. Constructed over one week at Lonnie Bird's School in Dandridge, TN. Simple, but enjoyable design. I plan to...
  8. Small Country Table

    I just finished up this project for the house. We needed a small table for the sun room and I built this to go with the coffee table in front that I also built. I sprayed it with Satin Latex paint then distressed it and stained it with a Dark Walnut stain and then sealed it all up with a few...
  9. Happy Wife, Happy Life

    My parents remodeled the kitchen in their 1960s house a few years ago. A couple closets were part of the remodel. I took the shelf boards from those closets, not wanting them to go in the trash. My wife saw the boards and asked if I could use the wood to build something for her. She wanted a...
  10. cedar sign

    I made this sign with some cedar fence boards and used vinyl letting for it. I burnt the wood and clear coated it. Pretty simple but I like it.
  11. Pine Farmhouse Table

    This is a 3' x 8' Pine Farmhouse Table. My wife wanted the one at Pottery Barn for $3000. The compromise was that I got a new jointer and a new 12" compound miter saw for $650 and built this one instead. I do cringe when the kids bang it up- although that's the way its supposed to look. (And...
  12. Cedar cooler box

    I finished another cooler box for a friend. It is cedar construction put together with pocket holes. I put their brand on the top and finished it with three coats of urethane. I like the way it brings out the differences in the grain and colors of the cedar.
  13. Maple Trestle Dining Table

    Just finished a huge 4-month long trestle table build. All 8/4 hard maple, it's 9'x3' with seating for 10. Finished with dyed shellac and arm-r-seal. The client asked for "bombproof," well they definitely got it with this! She's a beast of a table for sure, with the top/legs weighing in at...
  14. Finishing Tote?

    I'm not really sure what to call this thing. When it comes to be "finishing" time, I find that the stuff I am looking for is all over the place. When I am done, the stuff is everywhere in different places it doesn't belong. I decided to make a little tote for it. It's made from left over...
  15. Completed Entertainment Center

    I prior posted this entertainment center as partially complete, as described here: Daughter's New TV Cabinet. Now, having completed the shelves for the sides, this post will show the full entertainment center as designed & shown in this prior posting. I didn't take any construction photos, all...
  16. TV Cabinet with Reclaimed Barn Door Hardware

    This is a fun project I did for a customer that wanted to do a simple outdoor cabinet for their flat screen tv. The cabinet is made of MDF. I laminated 1/2" pieces together to give it the paneled look and to increase the strength. The hinges are Blum 170° Full Overlay euro hinges and I used 3...
  17. American Flag

    I finished 4 of these flags in two days. One to keep, one for my mother, and 2 for an auction at my in-laws family picnic. I cut the wood out for 12 of them although I only painted and finished the 4. I ran out of time. The painting process took forever. The 'stripes' are 4" x 1/4" x 6' long...
  18. My Daughter's new TV cabinet

    While this project doesn't meet the full requirements of Posting - in that it is not 100% complete, it is now in use & can stand alone as is, and I haven't posted in quite a while, so I've decided to post this initial portion of the ultimate project. I started this project back in last...
  19. Country Kitchen Benches + (secret)

    Here are two country kitchen benches I just built. Lids up offer great storage. On the last photo you can see the two country kitchen credenzas I recently built and posted on LJ. They were fun to build and they are quite handy. I used glued-up birch and the finish is three coats of wipe-on poly...
  20. Western Mirrors and frames

    I just finished up three frames for mirrors. I also etched some writing onto the glass it is the first time that I have done that and I am pretty happy with the results. I used Fir for this project and then burnt it to show the grain better. For the mirrors I went with 16×16. These are gifts...
