  1. Desk Name Plate/segmentation

    Nameplate made for a coworker. She said she loved butterflies, so I just ran with it. Getting alot better with using a spray gun and lacquer. Just takes practice I think. First time I have tried to bend Lexan. Pretty easy to work with actually.
  2. Ash wood desk

    I've been working on this desk build for months now and I'm so happy to finally be done! First I built the 3 base cabinets from 3/4 ply finished with Polo Blue cabinet paint. Then I spent a few days cleaning out my home office and making space… And finally got to work on the desk top! This 7+...

    This desk is a nice little desk my father in law built for my wife many years ago…when we move down to Southern California last year we had no room for it inside (along with several other tables) and we nearly got rid of it…my wife was not too attached to it even though she had it a long time...
  5. Desktop Organizer

    I made three of these. I had a need for a desktop organizer. I am too cheap to buy one that I would end settling on. So, cheaper than I could buy one, i made one that I wanted and fit my needs (not settled for). The wood is recycled pallet wood from the loading dock at work and coated in...

    13'4" long, 24" average width, and 2"thick. Book-matched set joined end to end with lots of biscuits, 1/2"thick q-sawn ash bow-ties and counter top clamps routered into the bottom. I chiseled out the bark inclusion in the crotches and filled them back in with rocks to make it look like a little...

    Fresh Walnut slabs Got a chance to slab a large walnut log today that I just picked up. Put a brand new chain on my mill and took off cutting. Went pretty good till the second cut when my saw found that 7 inch bolt that was just waiting to snag my chain. Had to resharpen a couple times but...

    Maple Burl Slabs I got a chance to get back to the sawmill today after not being able to cut for 2 weeks. Was anxious to see what was inside that hard maple log that I picked up a couple weeks ago. So I started with the one which had the most burls. That first slice on a log is just like...
