  1. First "Real" project - Farmhouse style Dining Table

    The story will need an update, but here is my first ever "real" project. Before this I'd made some plywood cabinet-type construction, some miscellaneous pine panel items, my workbench, and precisely one spatula… The top is where most of the effort & $$$'s went. Its primarily a 4/4 hickory...
  2. Reclaimed wood desk

    I designed and built this desk for a customer in Blue Ridge Georgia. The design was influenced by the open slat designs of corn cribs. This desk features a 2" thick top with a rough, live edge front. There is a drawer on the left side for storage and space underneath for a computer tower. The...
  3. a chair called jim

    The chair design is part Japanese and part kiwi, the chair is called Jim because at our local badminton club there's this South Korean guy with some ridiculously long and hard to pronounce name so we just call him Jim. Had some left over NZ macrocarpa from a TV cabinet i was commissioned to...

    I made a quick tool holder for my Wera screwdriver set, It is made out of a jatoba wood offcut that had been on the shelf in my workshop for over a year. I wanted to make something super simple just to get back into the workshop. I made a video for my channel BCDesign check it out...

    Black walnut cradle for a customer. Solid walnut, no fasteners used. Hand cut the dovetails and put a danish oil finish on it. A few things I'll be changing on the next one but overall happy with the result.
  6. A 6 inch Diameter "Coin Bowl" in Mahogany

    After having a rather "crazy" week, full of all kinds of nonesense that has taken far more time to get to the bottom of than it deserved, I have actually found enough time to myself to get out in the Workshop & turn something! I have made this as a "House Warming" gift to a good friend of mine...
  7. Rounded Box

    Box was modeled after a Pinterest post. I'll try to find to give proper credit. This piece is constructed with various hardwoods from my cutoff treasure pile:maple, walnut, cherry. All rounded surfaces were hand planed. A first for me! A little Danish Oil to finish gave it a nice warm presence.
  8. Man - this took forever

    Bedside tables was the goal and would be my first real furniture project. I like dark and light color wood combinations and I saw a few maple and walnut combination pieces here on LJ and thought I had to give those a try. The problem is these woods are quite expensive this side of Africa, but...

  11. Butcher block kitchen island

    My wife requested a butcher block kitchen island for Christmas and I obliged. The top is 35×28in and 3¼ inches thick made from ¾ inch cherry and sapele boards, glued together in pairs.

  13. Spalted Maple Slimline Pencil

    I finally decided to make a mechanical pencil for my shop instead of constantly sharpening pencils to get that sharp line for dovetail cutting. I got a whole bunch of this maple from a tree in our neighborhood that came down about 8 months ago. I like the feel of the wood when writing so I...
  14. Beech Table with Jatoba Inlay

    Hi, I started this table as my first real project in a woodworking class. The table is mostly made out of beech. To make it a little bit out of the ordinary I used some pieces of beech that showed growing stains and cracks. To me that's what wood normally looks like. Not all people are...

  16. Curly Maple and African Mahogany Chess Board

    This is my first completed non workshop project since my return to woodworking (1 new house+2 new kids= 5 years no woodworking).

  19. Maple Shut the Box Game

    I finally made something that I have been wanting to do for years but life just got in the way. A few years ago, my family took a trip to Williamsburg, VA and at one of the tavern/restaurants they bring out games to play while you eat. We played shut the box for the first time and loved it. I...

    Well, I originally posted these as a blog series but things have been hectic around here, so I wasn't able to finish bloging the creation of these boxes. Luckily I have had the time to finish the boxes though… Two boxes, first time I've done boxes like these, and the first time I was able to...
