  1. Cypress Wood Screen Door

    Starting to Work on a screen door for my back porch. Had some cypress wood that I had picked up in Atlanta Ga. to make Adirondack chairs. But had a more pressing project for a screen door. Looking to make it with a craftsman style look. I have some Marin finish for the final coat and will put...
  2. Mission Oak Wine Rack

    This is a wine rack I made to donate to a charity auction. I was looking for something in the craftsman style, but I couldn't find anything in any of my books. I found this basic design online and made a few modifications. I'm not sure it looks "mission" enough, but they liked it at the auction...
  3. Craftsman Style Mantle

    The walnut mantle was made for our daughter's new house.The dentil molding was cut on the table saw using a box joint set up.
  4. 1930 Porch Railing Recreation...

    I was asked by a friend of mine to create the original porch railing of his 1930 craftsman style home. I wasn't sure I was up for this job and honestly thought I had gotten myself in over my head. I am not a carpenter. I just enjoy working with wood. I have very little training and what I do...
  5. FINALLY the Mission spindle bed is completed

    Over a year from the first bed post, this is the largest project I have done. The design came from Jeff Miller's excellent treatise in 1999 "beds". All white oak from the tree in David Beaty's front yard, super big thanks to Dave and all the hoisting from Tarheel Supply. The rails and other...
  6. Entertainment Center in QSWO -Phase 2

    A while back I posted the first part of my Entertainment center project (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/59675). The plan was to add a center bridge cabinet and side display cases. I finally had the time to complete the project. The style is Art and Crafts to match the other furniture in the...
  7. Queen-size Bed

    This bed is made of solid white oak, except for the panels, which are white oak plywood. All of the lumber came from the same tree and was purchased from a fellow member of my local woodworking club. There are thirty-eight mortise and tenon joints in the headboard. The design of the headboard is...
  8. Milestone: Thirty One Feet of Craftsman Style Porch Railing

    The railing is part of a three year down-to-dirt demolition and reconstruction of the porch on our 1925 Craftsman style home, necessitated by a sinking foundation. I think of the railing project as another installment payment on bad Karma I earned somewhere. This payment involved 5 weeks of...
  9. Home Office Improvement - Angled Frame Wastebasket

    Here are a couple pics of a wastebasket I made to help improve the home office. A little Quarter Sawn Oak to brighten the day. Made a short video here
  10. Belly up to the bar (Maloof inspired Bar Stools)

    Hello fellow LJ'ers. Just delivered these three bar stools to a semi-local customer. A custom detail was added (note the Cloud Lift on the lower stretchers). The client was very happy, and the celebratory drinks were flowing freely. At the risk of a self-indulgent plug, if you would like to...
  11. Mesquite Barrel "Stave" table

    I said I would post better pictures after I received them back from photographer,so here they are.You can see the turquoise better now. The table is made from Mesquite and has wenge accents and turquoise inlayed into the cracks. See other pictures of this table: Mesquite Barrell "Stave" Table...
  12. Basketweave Frame Mirror

    For this project I simply decided to experiment. I wanted to get the frame to appear as though the wood is interwoven between each other while in actuality, it is completely solid. The frame is made from walnut wood and here is the end result.
  13. Milestone: 10 Craftsman Porch Columns Restored

    When the pristine plaster in our 88 year old Craftsman-style home began to crack, we were called out on the condition of our porch. It was sinking on its foundation. So, the porch roof was propped up. I completely demoed everything down to the bare foundation. It's amazing what you can do...
  14. bottle openers

    These openers use rare earth magnets which are recessed in the back. They attach to any metal surface and when you open a bottle they catch and hold the tops. ( neat idea some other LBJ member shared a while ago)
  15. QSWO Dining Table

    We needed to replace our ugly, mismatched, and broken/abused dining table. I built this to match the room's woodwork/trim, which my brother-in-law designed and crafted so beautifully several years back. This long-term project required more than a few "adjustments" and other lessons learned along...
  16. Craftsman Style Floor Lamp

    I got this Craftsman Style floor Lamp commission at Christmas from a good friends wife as a surprise birthday present for him. It will reside in Nashville after today. It is made from locally harvested Qt. Sawn White Oak and I used Mica for the shade . A friend and I built 3 different sleds...
  17. craftsman style Entry door with cutom stained glass leaded light

    African mahogany entry door. This was a great learning experience. I learned you can't just build an all wood door, you mush first "build" the lumber used to construct it, nearly half of the time required to build a solid wood door, that wont warp, is spent preparing the wood. Once done with...
  18. End Tables

    Set of End Tables for the Living room. These are Craftsman style end tables that was a plan in a previous wood magazine.
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I decided to pull out my planer knives and sharpen them today. I don't have a jig, nor do I want to buy or make one, nor do I want to ship these things off and pay to get them sharpened. Based on that, I just sharpened my planer knives freehand today with my DMT stone up to 1200. I haven't put...
  20. Wood & Lumber
    Ok…. Been a while since I've been in here. I have a question to ask everyone. The above photo is a close up of a piece close to the tip… This is 5 inches across. This at the base is as big as my waist, before it was accidently cut into with the dozer it was over 70feet long. This is a...
