  1. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey all. I've got a Craftsman 113.298 that I picked up for free off craigslist recently (really lucky find). Couldn't really give it a once over when picking it up since it was out on the curb and I wanted to snag it before wasting a trip a few towns over. Got it home and it's got a bit of rust...
  2. Projects Drill Press Cabinet

    I've had the Viking Nova drill press for a while now and it needed a permanent home. The project started where most of my projects do, on SketchUp. Part way thru making the SketchUp model I realized I needed to dig thru the various scraps and shorts to see what was usable for the project. I...
  3. Spalted oak Stickley Cabinet

    Built this for my wife for Christmas. I followed a Stickley drawing and Woodsmith (I think). At this point I was struggleing with a couple of things - I made it out of spalted white oak that was milled & air dried here in Oregon. I'm not entirely satisfied with the plywood back - in...
  4. Cherry Refreshment Table

    This is my cherry refreshment table which features breadboard ends and a small dovetailed drawer. Secondary woods include poplar, aromatic cedar, and walnut pegs. The top drawer rail is attached with lapped dovetails, while the lower shelf is secured with tusk tenons. A hammered drawer pull...

  6. Baby Bandsaw Box From Scrap

    Well, I finally got back to my shop after all my trips and building projects. (Some of us are only weekend and night woodworkeers and get to work AFTER we fix the house, fence, plumbing, etc, etc.) This fall I cut some fence posts out of redwood and after I cut off some the unneeded ends from...
  7. Spalted Alder Mirror Frame

    This is the last of 5 frames I'm building for my friends. I used spalted alder that I had milled from the same friends wood lot. Essentially I let the logs lay through two winters and cut them in the third summer - kind of a formula that I've worked out for the local Climate - this generally...
  8. Vanity Base

    I was commissioned to build this piece for some friends who were remodeling their master bath. It's made of red oak and finished with Minwax oil-based Classic Oak and Sedona Red. It was designed in AutoCAD around the vanity purchased at Ikea. The grate shelf fit together very snugly with the...
  9. Big Leaf Maple Clock

    Maple Burl Clock very quick and simple to make. I made 14 of them in a couple of versions for Christmas presents this year. I use a lot of Burl Caps (12'' to 18 " diameter) for bowls and occasionally have one that is to shallow for a good bowl but is ideal for this. If you cut the burl cap in...
  10. Greene and Greene Motawi Tile Frame

    We visited the Gamble House in Pasadena. As a woodworker, I was so moved by the craftsmanship that when my girlfriend showed me the Motawi tiles she really liked, I told her I would make a commemorative frame for them in the Greene and Greene style. It was extremely difficult for such a small...
  11. Stickley style double bookcase No. 719

    I've been working on this thing for close to forever, but it's finally done. First time I've built doors. The carcass of the bookcase is 1-1/8-inch quartersawn wood; the back is made up of individually splined 3/4-inch boards. Dimensions: 60 inches wide, 55 inches tall, 13 inches deep. The...
  12. Craftsman Bookends

    I saw an ad for these in the back of American Bungalow magazine (worth getting just for the ads). My girlfriend had to go to a business meeting, so I said I'd make a set before she got home. She looked at me with those "another project?" eyes. Sure enough, when she got home, they were ready...
  13. Desk

    I included elements of Greene and Greene's the Gamble House in Pasadena, CA specifically the cloud uplift. It took me about 6 weeks to design because I kept tweaking it adding the Greene and Greene cloud details on the feet and keyboard support. I used SketchUp 8 and was quite please with the...
  14. Craftsman Headboard

    I made this for us out of quartersawn white oak. I finished it with TransTint Reddish Brown in alcohol so there would be no raising of the grain between the spindles. Ingenious design to moun the spindles inside of a box joint strip. Looks like an instant antique. I'm making a dresser to go...
  15. Tabouret Table

    These were made from red oak from the plans in Popular Mechanics - Mission Furniture - How to Make It. We found the book in the Gamble House bookstore. Originally, I was only going to make one, but I made a mental mistake, thinking that tables need four legs. When I realized that two lapped...
  16. Cherry Shaker Bench

    I have done some very sophisticated pieces, but these Shaker style benches are a favorite of everyone that sees them. I made one for a client in Ohio based on an original that he showed me. I suggested adding the drawers underneath for the kids to store hats and mittens. The design has become...
  17. A rolling base (w/ drawer) for my Craftsman 13" planer

    My planer weighs roughly a metric ton, and is a real pain to move and use on the floor. I built a ~10" tall rolling base for it so I could position it where I need it, and the whole thing tucks perfectly under one end of one of my work tables. I got a little bit fancy with the coloring, but I'm...
  18. Craftsman entry/sofa table

    I built this Craftsman style table a few years back, ok it was many and it was one of my first projects. I been meaning to post it but never got around to taking pictures. It is all mortise and tenon joinery except the top is held on with pocket screws as it is one piece and I was hoping if it...
  19. Triple Threat

    Since I don't have a digital camera or a life, I stuffed three projects into one photo: 1) a morris chair and ottoman (and I'll bet you can't tell I did the sewing for the cushion covers), 2) the bookcase, and 3) the clock on the bookcase. The chair and ottoman were made from dimensional...
  20. Arts and Crafts Nightstands

    Here are my arts and crafts nightstands in quartersawn red oak. They feature one small, over two large drawers with storage in mind. The lower assembly is built with through tenons and double walnut pegs. Drawers are dovetailed, with poplar and aromatic cedar used as secondary woods. Side...
