  1. stair gates

    These three gates were made to function as barriers for a small child and pets. The wood is ash which I chose to colour and match to the floor and banisters. I relied heavily on my love for art deco design to create a look that was unique but didn't stand out inside the house, instead, the...
  2. 3D pallet wood church project

    First of all, I can't take full credit for this project, but I wanted to share it because it turned out so awesome. Our youth pastor, his wife (and her mom) and I made these 3D letters that spell HOPE for our church stage during a sermon series titled "Project HOPE". Here's a link to see it on...
  3. Building a Peruvian Walnut side table

    I built this little side table for a client in Santa Fe. I had never worked in Peruvian walnut before and was curious about how it worked. Turns out it's really nice. I wrote a post for my Furniture Blog if you're interested in checking out the build.
  4. Pecan crotch bowl

    Another rimed bowl of pecan. This was from a crotch. This one was easier to turn as I didn't have to move the center. I learned to turn the tenon before turning around and not use the faceplate as I hit the screws when turning out the bottom. I had to jam chuck it and turn the tenon after I...
  5. Modern Sofa Table

    Modern Sofa Table This table was built to be auctioned off at a local charity fundraiser to benefit the mentally and physically handicapped. It is built to the same dimensions as the Eco Sofa Table but I made some design element changes. The most obvious difference is that I dyed the bamboo...
  6. Oak Kitchen Cabinet

    My kitchen has limited amount of cabinet space. So this was a project I knew was going to enjoy building. I designed it, and built it to spec. It's just about 95% oak. Mosaic tile top I had built for another project played a major role in the dimensioning of this cabinet. Equipped with full...
  7. Tool Cabinet

    Sorry about the wait, but it is finally done. This cabinet has been a fun experience, especially getting to share building it with everyone. I didn't want to mark it as finished here until I had finished the video. I only had one complete computer crash and two programming errors this time. I...
  8. Designing Woodworking Projects
    What in your mind and or perspective constitutes custom made woodworking? Is it the integration of select elements of an artist or woodworker into his/her work that display their personality and individual style in the work created? Or is it the creation created from a vast array of customer...
  9. Designing Woodworking Projects
    My husband and I just bought a mid century modern house and we are planning a reno to update the house but also to maintain the style. We'd like some dining room built-ins and bathroom vanities that have veneer faces on drawers/cabinet faces but finding someone that does this had been difficult...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I received a 50s/60s era 6" jointer recently. after rehabbing the body somewhat and getting the bed moving again, I made the mistake of breaking the pressfit bearings on the blade shaft. I don't think I can get the big drum removed (I think it would have done something before this point if I...
  11. Finishing
    I am a hobbiest woodworker and I'm considering purchase of an Earlex. I'm hestating because I do not have space for a dedicated spray booth. I also live on Canada's west coast where it rains 11 months of the year (at least it seems that way). Suffice it to say that spraying outdoors is pretty...

    TOE the Trickle Outward Effect On my walk this morning I paused to admire the Willamette River. It is wide and this morning it was quiet, peaceful and full. As always it was flowing past me, underneath my footbridge. The body split apart and came back together again with grace and ease...

  14. Hand Tools
    Hello I am looking to do a live edge slab coffee table and was wondering if i could get away with just using a router and sled assembly to flatten the board and then finish off with a smoothing plane. I should note I do not have a plane at the moment but have used them before. Good planes are...
