  1. Distressed Knotty Alder Sliding Barn Door

    Here's a door we constructed/installed for a customer that wanted a very specific look. They showed us a picture from a hardware manufacturer's website and wanted to make a very similar door. The door is made of new, kiln dried knotty alder and is a total thickness of 1.75″. There is a mixture...
  2. Country shelf

    Last year my daughter asked me to make shelf to the new her apartment. I am suggested to make brutal shelf in the country style. I am used birch 1-1/2 inch and veneering mahagony edges. I am sawed mahagony veneer sheet thickness 1/16 inch. For the finishing I used Varathane Gel Stain and...
  3. Desktop Forklift

    I made this project for my girlfriend. She always loved watching me drive a forklift and this was a good way for her to remember me every time she sits down at her desk =). The "unit" on the forks has room for business cards and the back is a pen holder…made with various woods, pine, cedar...
  4. Three Country Shelves

    Here are three country shelves I have just finished finishing - just in time too, because the finish almost finished me! (I'm sorry, but I never apologize for puns…err…well.) See my SOS on the finishing forum http://lumberjocks.com/topics/28250 This is my first serious foray back into my...
  5. End tables finished, project completed.

    The end tables are finished & delivered. This completes the project for my daughter, the entertainment center & end tables for her living room. With this project, as with all others I've undertaken, I try new techniques or use some of my wooden planes that so far have been collecting dust in my...
  6. Tailgate Bench

    This was another luck of the find projects. I came across this Chevrolet pickup tailgate at the local salvage yard and couldn't resist getting it just to make it into a bench. It seats 4 and has a lot of character. Combined with some salvaged wood, it turned into the perfect county-chic...
  7. Tables

    here is a few of the tables I've made over the last two years, most are country style thick legs.
  8. Country Coat Racks

    These pine coat racks embellished with woodburned or painted scenes make a functional and pleasing addition to home decor. I've sold dozens of these and really enjoy making and embellishing these projects.
  9. Small spice cabinet

    Here is my first attempt at an old time spice cabinet. It uses 1/2 inch Douglas fir molding that I got from the lumber yard scrap bin. It's 15×9x3.5 inches and is painted a burnt red. Next time I am going to attempt an antique paint look. It gave me some good practice at making drawers.
  10. Sofa / Entry Way Table

    My wife wanted a new sofa style table for our entry way. It had to be narrow so visitors could walk by as our entry way isn't very wide. It's actually part of the living room. We decided on 16 inches deep by five feet wide. In the not too distant past I made a dining room table for my...
  11. Pine Plate Rack

    These pine plate racks were a big seller in my early woodworking years. The idea came from other projects I was building for tole painting classes at a local craft store. I came up with my own design for a country style plate rack designed to display four dinner size plates. The lighter piece...

  13. First Woodworking Project

    I was going through my photos on my computer and I came across this. This bookshelf was my first 'official' woodworking project. Before this I had repurposed some things and painted some things but this was built from scratch. I got the plans from New Yankee Workshop, like season 1. I had to...
  14. country cabinet

    I used some red oak with character for this small wall cabinet. I found the plan in a old Weedend Woodcraft's magazine. It was a fun and easy project. The plan called for nailing it all together. I mostly followed that concept but did add stopped dado's to the interior shelves and then screwed...
  15. Some Quick Flea Market Signs From Reclaimed Pine

    Nothing special, just showing some quick country signs that I painted last night on some old pine siding. I need to figure out another way to hang them, however. All the knot-work is extremely time consuming. Cornerstone Flats
  16. Western BBQ Competition Booth

    My first booth, built on a very limited budget and my donated time. The BBQ competition was a fundraiser for a benefit and therefore I had to scrape together donated materials and work with only a couple hundred bucks. But all in all I don't think she turned out too shabby. I did luck out and...

    Hi guys, this is my latest finished project, a flat top semi hollow body ES335 style electric guitar, and this is the first guitar I make from scratch. It took me several months to study/learn the needed skills and almost two months to finish it and I'm so pleased with the final result! :D Body...
  18. Set of Little Piggy Cutting Boards for Etsy Store

    It's time to come clean and tell y'all that we have an Etsy Store. The most popular item so far seems to be these "little piggy" cutting boards. I'm trying to build up a little inventory, so the store is a little skinny right now, but things are selling. I decided to make and sell these boards...

  20. Router table

    I created a simple router table that attached to my work bench - I've never used a router before. Unfortunately, it worked better in theory than in practice. When I went to use the router, I placed a scrap board on it, and as I moved the board, the whole table shifted. Not good! I decided to...
