  1. Journal Fireplace Surround/Mantel Details: Design Considerations

    Return to Contents We recently gave our family room a facelift by repainting it with a new color and scraping off the dated popcorn ceiling texture. To complete the makeover, we needed to update the fireplace. My wife hadn't liked the old tile surround (a yellowish, shiny stone) for many years...
  2. Projects My Recovery Chair

    This a protype for a set of dining chairs that I am working on. The back is too low, so the next prototype version I will increase the angle on the back leg assembly. The original intention was for them to go out back but SWMBO wants dining chairs so the next version will have a soft seat and a...
  3. Pepper Mill/Salt Shaker Combination

    Here is another Pepper Mill/Salt Shaker combination. These are proving to be very popular and are fun to make. This one is made from some 2 1/2×2 1/2" Poplar from Lowes. Turning is pretty easy, you only need two drill bits, a 1 1/2" and a 1 1/16" Forestner bits. I get the kits from Penn...
  4. Rustic Aspen Bench

    Just had to share this natural shape. Aspen and weathered wood…probably Doug fir slab. No bottom cross piece…a great place for boots. Bruce
  5. Table Saw Router Extension

    Since I have a small shop, I had to optimize my space and take advantage of the Biesemeyer fence's accuracy and make it do double duty. My girlfriend's dad helped me route out the plate recess in his big shop. It was quite the bonding experience. We made a template so that I can make...
  6. Lyptus Bread Box

    This box is much bigger than it appears. I should have put something in for scale but forgot. Anyway. This box is made out of Lyptus which is an engineered tree that grows fast from its own stump. Meaning the foresters don't have to re-plant after cutting and they get to harvest in about 17-20...

    Apricot bowl. Finished with wax.
  8. Military Shadow Box Table

    I made this table for my 1st Sergeant who retired after 29 years of military service in the USAF. Although this took a while to make, it was well worth the time and effort. It is made of red oak 1X material and oak ply finished with a few coats of minwax classic oak stain. This is a project I...

  12. Utility Storage Cabinets

    No fine woodworking to be found here, just a built in utility storage cabinet. Plywood carcass, face frame, drawer boxes and separate draw fronts. Straight forward and actually, I farmed out the doors, drawer fronts, and three of the drawer boxes. It's hard to photograph this big piece in a...

  14. Padauk Jigsaw Puzzle Piece Box

    OK. There really isn't any puzzle to opening this box. I had a friend who wanted a box to store a deck of collectible cards for him. This was my first try. It turned out to be too narrow for the cards in question but was a fun experiment. The center is empty to hold whatever you can fit past the...

  17. Flat-Packed Furniture Design

    Any furniture maker knows that shipping is a cost worthy of high consideration. Often times shipping rates have been a deciding factor for my customers and I hate to see a lost sale simply due to shipping. You might be wondering why I don't offer free shipping… The answer is simple: Shipping...
  18. Walnut Jewelry Box

    This jewelry box was my first commissioned piece as well as my first venture into solid-wood, woodworking. In spite of this, the project went very well, aside from a few set backs and mistakes. The box was made for a friend, and fellow designer's, wife. I was given complete design control so I...
  19. Oak shelf

    My wife wanted an apple-motif shelf for a spot in our dining area, and saw one at a craft fair that she liked. In true woodworker fashion I said to her, "I can make one of those for you" A few short years later…I finally did. As you can see, it didn't take all that long to fill it with...
  20. Dopey

    I am finishing up a fun project that I am doing for a friend of a Dopey from "Snow White". She did a neat thing last month. She posted on Facebook a "Pay It Forward" type campaign for the first 5 people that commented on her post would recieve a gift from her. The catch was, the people reciving...
