  1. I don't know what to call this haha-Made it up as I went

    Made out of Pine. Used a 3 step process on the finish to hide the fact it was pine haha. Used water diluted paint for toning then stained with Cabot Dark Walnut and then polyed. The trim around the top was primed MDF so I had to do some crazy faux painting to try to get it to match the rest of...
  2. Faux Live Edge side table

    Just built this faux live edge table for a friend from cedar. First attempt at a faux live edge. Epoxied the top and then poly over the top and sides.
  3. Faux Harvest Table

    A local boutique needed a harvest table but couldn't afford my real ones so I bought this veneered mdf table from a junk dealer for twenty bucks, faux finished it and sold it for two hundred dollars. It took about ten hours to complete over two days, mixing with other work. The pie safe is mine...
  4. Reproduction Antique Rocking Chair

    I bought this hardwood rocker from the local junk dealer for $10 and faux finished it to give it an aged, well worn look, then put a price tag of $175 on it. I didn't skimp on details on this project. It took hours of hand work to get this look. The varnished maple was sanded to give the faux...

  6. Rustic Faux-Barnwood Framed Sign

    I built this sign for a guy who just stumbled into my shop one day. He asked if I could build him a sign to put above his hot tub. He wanted it to be made of old barn wood, but I told him that all the barn wood I had access to was cupped and pretty fragile and that it wasn't suited for sign...
  7. Faux Timberframing

    I wanted something to go with the deck in my back yard and this is what I came up with. It's all cedar finished with Penofin. The joints are splined. The 45 degree supports are mortised into the 4×4s. The center rafter is a half lap joint fastened with screws and the holes covered with wooden...
  8. Brick Archway

    Hello, This being my first post I felt it would be good to use it to introduce myself. I work in theatrical carpenter/technician and do more traditional woodworking on the side. Most of the projects I do at work get viewed under special lighting and at a distance to boot. With all that being...
  9. Home Bar with Waterfall

    Here is the video for the first bar I made. This one was more of a prototype as I was still figuring things out. Here is the second version with some extra features added, long with some Faux marbling . Sorry about the music on the video…don't know what I was thinking;) Description of this...
  10. Cherry Contemporary Desk

    I finally found my data cable to my camera. So I figured I would start posting some of my projects. This is my first project post… Anyway about the desk, My fiancé is going to school for her master's degree and the desk she was using was embarrassing. It was falling apart, the paper thin veneer...
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey all! I have an older hand me down drill press, back from when they were made from precast iron, its a bench top model and works like its brand new. It has the pulley system which I have played around with, and I think I have the pulleys set up to produce the most amount of RPM's, however...
  12. Finishing
    I'm increasingly running into people, mostly young who want what I consider dump furniture. I grew up in an old drafty house (I'm 56 now so it was awhile ago). The furniture in the 60's was left over from the 1900's to 1930's. Some wood was split or the old bureaus had veneer coming off. It...
  13. Finishing
    I know this piece isn't real reclaimed wood and the marks are faux - how do they do it? How do they get the marks and the smooth edges? Also - would you say it has a glossy finish? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
