  1. New Life for an Old Dresser

    My Fiance asked me to transform with dresser into something she saw on pinterest. I believe it is from the late 70s to early 80s during the mass production of this style oak dressers. Figuring out the bracing support for the seat was the hardest part for me. Sanding off the old varnish took the...
  2. Dresser & Night Stand

    I have been wanting a new dresser and night stands in for our bedroom for a while now, all of our bedroom furniture is dark and the old dresser was natural maple so it kind of stuck out a bit. I managed to make all of this out of material I had around the shop from previous jobs. It is made of...
  3. My First Table (dinning / card )

    I needed to make a small dinning table for my Daughter's tiny apartment. Aprox. 43" X 43" (The table not the apartment) My daughter wanted it all stained black to match some of her decor. So using my own stock to save a few $$ I used Poplar for the legs & apron. and Birch for the top. But after...
  4. House warming gift

    My friend who is a contractor just moved into a new apartment and didn't have anywhere to put his garbage and recycling, so I decided to make him a little island for his kitchen with two garbage roll outs. It was a nice quick project and I had most of the materials left over from other projects...
  5. Kitchen Island

    I modeled it after a John Boos table that I really liked. Problem was that it cost $1600! Total cost for my island was $225. It was also too large for my kitchen so I made the dimensions slightly smaller and added a removable shelf. I also used the opportunity to add some elegance by...
  6. Kitchen Table

    This is a kitchen table I made for my mom. It is maple with an espresso stan topped off with three coats of lacquer. I did not make the chairs in the picture. The jig i used for the legs is the last picture, two fences a v-groove bit and a straight bit. The legs were the most time consuming part...
  7. Ladder Bookcase

    There were some bookcases that I really liked from Crate and Barrel, but they were $700 a piece. Strut Bookcase And there was a good chance they would block my in-wall speakers. So of course I built my own that were custom sized to the exact dimensions I needed. Since I won't put too many...
  8. Computer Desk

    Here's my new computer desk that I desperately needed to make because I was tired of my old walmart-quality desk that was reeeally small. The top is now over 5ft x 2ft giving me plenty of room to work. It's only 3/4" thick but I banded it with solid wood to stiffen it and give the illusion...
  9. Changing Table - Stained Poplar and Birch Plywood

    Thanks to some great help from the Lumberjocks forums, I finally finished the changing table! It is poplar, baltic birth plywood, stained with Kona in an attempt to match a store-bought crib we haven't received yet. The joinery is dowels, pocket screws and the side frames are my first attempt...
  10. Espresso Tamper

    Today's project was an Espresso Tamper - The foot is Walnut, but I'm not sure what the rest is. The wood came in a large sack and was unmarked. I was told it was Zebra wood, but I'm not sure. A nice little project for a saturday evening which I'll get to use on Sunday morning.
  11. Bathroom Vanity & Mirror

    This was an unexpected project I made for my mother, she was planning on renovating the bathroom in the next couple of years but we noticed a leak in the wax seal of the toilet, after I played plumber for a while and noticed that some of the floor needed to be replaced due to water damage, yada...
  12. floating TV shelf

    This is a floating shelf for a tv I made, its maple stained espresso with three coats of lacquer, something about floating shelves always makes me look at them in awe… they just look cool lol.
  13. Soda blasted refinishing project

    First things first, sorry for the no before picture, this is a mirror that was given to me by a neighbour some years ago, he had lots of Imperial Oil memorabilia as he worked for them his whole career, he passed some things onto me as he had noticed I liked them. This mirror was sitting in my...
  14. Recycled Furniture

    Recently purchased a rental home from the estate of an older lady that had not updated her furniture since the 60s. While moving the furniture out, noticed that the bedroom suite furniture was very solidly built so I decided to see if it could be updated - one step past using reclaimed lumber...
  15. New Closet For Mom

    This is a new closet I made for my mother, she has been wanting a new one for a while now because the one the contractor who built the house made was less than functional… unfortunately when I was half way done ripping that one out I realized I didn't take a "before" shot, oops. Basically it was...
  16. Christmas Marble Machine

    I have constructed a Christmas Marble Machine, it has 5 unique paths and lots of bells and gongs producing jingle bells like sound. I used a elevator from a Spacerail Ball Coaster set to bring the marbles up to the top. This marble machine can be reused and expanded in the future. Paths: -...
  17. Kaleidoscope for Drema

    I have a friend (Drema) that loves kaleidoscopes. I got the kit and bushings etc from Penn State and figured it'd be a no-brainer. I had a really hard time getting this one together. . I turned down a block of mopani to 2000 grit and polished it with my proprietary mixture (proprietary b/c I...
  18. Chinese Checker Board

    I made a Chinese Checker Board that can hang on the wall while storing marbles in the board. It's made of Maple and Redheart. Check out the YouTube video if you want to see how I did it… I also provided a drill template for anyone that wants to make one themselves...
  19. Espresso Kitchen

    This is a kitchen I recently did for the brother-in-law. He bought a house, took everything out but the studs and did a complete renovation before moving in. He is on the home stretch now and should be moving in soon. The kitchen is birch stained espresso with argento romano counters. The last...
  20. Electric Fireplace and Entertainment Centre

    After looking at similar units in furniture stores I decided that I could build this for much cheaper. It is built entirely out of oak plywood and a few oak planks. The fireplace is an electric firebox that I got on sale at Canadian Tire. The unit has been stained espresso with three coats of...
