  1. I <3 Oregon 7

    I had another request for my Oregon designed jewelry box, this one from my buddy who just recently celebrated his first year with his girlfriend. He said he wanted to get some kinda western themed design to it if I could, and this is what I had in mind! The majority of the box is douglas fir...
  2. CD Storage Chest

    I made this for a wedding present for my nephew and his wife. It is made from straight grain Douglas Fir. The plans came from Norm.
  3. Saw Benches

    These are small benches about 20" tall to make hand sawing easier. They also work great as step stools and shop seating. They are made from Doug Fir 2×10. The design is from Chris Schwarz, Lost Art Press. They stack to save space.
  4. Assembly Table

    I'm in the process of making several rustic wooden American flags and realized during the making of the first flag that the small assembly table I was using was way too small and I needed a bigger table. My weekend project was the new table. It's built from sanded plywood, a couple of 2×4s and...

  6. Simple Tablet Stand from a 2x4

    I built a new desk! ( . . . which I'll post later) I needed something to hold my tablet while I enjoy some multi-screen goodness. This is a really simple solution I came up with: A really clean chunk of quarter-sawn douglas from a 2×4, a small hole, a dado on one side the width of a USB cable...
  7. Retro Steampunk Plant Stand

    So not a real challenging wood project but it was fun. My wife brought home an old antique window from the nursery where she works. She wanted the antique window incorporated into a plant stand in some way. The window's wooden frame was in pretty bad shape. One of the two glass panes was...
  8. Scandavian Style Workbench

    I've finally finished the project I started two or three years ago…my Klausz style workbench. I built the base a while back, and then it got put on hold for other things, and I finally got back to it last year. This morning I put the BLO on it and pronounced it done. Originally, I planned to...
  9. My first piece of furniture!

    Hello! I'm new to what I'd call "Finer" woodworking, having done lots of "garage grade" projects like shelves, basic workbenches, etc. I made a few mistakes, one of them major (I'll just call it out… During final assembly, I flipped one of the leg assemblies 180-degrees, so one side of the...
  10. Carriage Doors

    Doors constructed out of quarter-sawn, Douglas fir. For a friend in Ogunquit Maine. I just build the door and layout the lights, he built the jamb and hung them on his home. Doors are 9' tall, 3' wide each. He was going to paint the doors originally, but like the wood so much he clear coated...
  11. Water Wheel -- 36"

    Here is a 36" diameter water wheel that I built this past summer. Next summer it will mounted against the end wall of my 10 X 20 ft. "Grist Mill/Garden Shed" as part of a water feature we are adding to our back yard. Water will spill over the wheel, run down a multi-tiered water fall and into...
  12. Sawbench (It has pockets!)

    This is my sawbench. With it, I am well pleased. Yes, it is already dented, dinged and dirty. I had to put it to work before I even finished finishing it. But they're not called "display benches" or "look-pretty benches," now are they? Parts were cut to length and ripped to width on the...
  13. Two U-Bild Plans Built Porch Rocking Chairs

    My wife had a ghetto wrought iron chair that belonged to a patio furniture set that she had inherited on the front porch while I was deployed. It annoyed the hell out of me for a lot of reasons, but to me it was a tacky eye sore. I had just received the 2014 Grizzly catalog and in the plans...
  14. Coffee Table

    Wanted a coffee table to match the entertainment center I built. Since the temperature here finally dropped below 100 F I went back into the garage and this is what happened to the maple I had out there. Mortise and tenon joinery, bread board ends, first time ever trying to tun something on a...
  15. Craftsman screen door

    Wifey wanted a screen door this summer and I promised one to her. Though it took me a bit longer than I expected (doors are huge in my tiny little shop), I've finally got it hung and the hardware on. Luckily, this summer hardly had any warm days (lucky?) and we would have hardly used a screen...
  16. One of my few commercial sign orders

    This customer decided to paint and finish the sign himself. Saved me a lot of time and him a lot of money. Works for me. This top sign is one single sassafras board, 20 some inches wide and almost 4 ft long.
  17. Shoadowbox bookshelf: another version

    My first commisioned piece for 2013. Inspired from a steel C&B bookshelf; this one is made from oak plywood (interior boxes and carcass), and white oak for the face frames. Ebony stain on the interior and a mix of weathered gray and "peppermill" on the rest. Satin finish poly all over. All...
  18. Art Box/Easel

    With thanks to Laney Shaughnessy, A Simple Design of Ocala, for the inspiration (and more importantly, the great detailed blog and youtube videos). This box was for a great Great Niece who is into art of all kinds. Maple and black walnut finished with Formby tung oil and Black Bison wax. It...
  19. MY WOOD RACK

    Here's my new wood and materials rack; it's primitive but it works well and protects my materials from wicking water from the floor. I'm going to put casters oon it so I can roll it away from the wet basement walls at night. I made it out of recycled materials from pallets and heavy duty packing...
