  1. Votive Candle holder, off the cuff style.

    Made this for a buddy for Christmas, tried out some new design Ideas I had and am still not sure if I completely like it lol. Initials were done by hand using my colwood burner. The wood is Black walnut (with some nice blond streaks) all one board, maple and purpleheart. finish is 3 coats...
  2. Bent curio cabinet

    This curio display cabinet was vaguely inspired by the form of arched railroad bridges (imagine a train cruising along the top of it). The top is made from walnut, both solid and veneered bent laminations; bottom is made from solid hard maple. Glass shelves and accent lights inside hold your...
  3. Step Stool

    The wood is white birch, the router profile is Roundover Ogee. The finish is Tung Oil.
  4. My workbench.

    Basic design, nothing fancy. Sawed the 2" x 4" in half, ran them through the planer and glued them back together. The base is temporary design but uses a "cam" to raise and lower the wheels to the ground.
  5. Panels from the Big Lynn Lodge, Little Switzerland, NC

    These panels were a commission for the Big Lynn Lodge, in Little Switzerland, North Carolina…a great place if you are in the area. Some are of Oak and some are of Ash. They measure 3'x5', with the exception of the tree, which is 2'x3'. For this job I paid a friend, Kevin Wadell, furniture...
  6. Upgrade from TV trays (Entertainment Center)

    We were given a 40" TV from my in-laws (won in a raffle). The problem was we had an "old style" TV stand that didn't fit one of these "new fangled" flat panel TV's. So our new TV sat on a couple TV trays butted together for a while. I decided on the Woodsmith issue #169 Wide-Screen TV Cabinet...
  7. Make simple, Maple bookends

    It's Christmas time and I have been trying to make as many gifts as possible. I was inspired by Steve Ramsey (WWMM). He posted some bookends that he made and I really liked the design. So I made this set of these simple bookends. I made mine out of maple, but I think walnut would be a good...
  8. Lathe Base (Removing warp and repair of damage.)

    This is a Swiss watchmaker's lathe (Note: Not a jeweler's lathe) from about 1880. The lathe itself still needs a little cleaning up as the compound is all gummed up with dirt and grease. I do not intend to polish the thing within an inch of it's life, but will clean the dirt and light surface...
  9. Sleigh

    Cedar, 10×7, finished in lacquer.
  10. Reclaimed Grey Barn Siding Sliding Door

    Here's a nice looking grey siding covered sliding barn door we did. This wood came from Iowa. This cool door covers the entry to a pantry and uses our 8″ v groove wheel hardware. I love this oversized hardware. It glides so smooth. I used the new style black phenolic door guide I recently...
  11. Home Library

    A client was having a new house built and wanted several rooms fitted out with cabinets. The wood used is Mahoany, and the veneer is Quilted Makore. (it seems that we had a run of clients who chose the same materials). The construction techniques are pretty much the same as are typical in this...
  12. Military Challenge Coin Bottle Stopper

    I only had a few minutes tonight but made good use of it. A friend asked me to make a couple of these for Christmas gifts. I'm thinking of making one of those lighted wine bottles with some LED lights to complete this little project.
  13. Archeological Sifters

    A friend of mine recently purchased the James Smith house. Smith was an American Revolutionary War patriot and lived only a few miles from here. The house was about to be destroyed to make room for a parking lot. It has now been dismantled and will be reassembled on another site. Included in the...
  14. 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...
  15. Torsion Box Out-Feed / Assembly Table

    So this is my first attempt at a torsion box design. I've seen them all over LJ and have been itching to build one. I am in my last 3 weeks of civilian carpentry employment before I go Active Duty with the Navy as a Nuke for at least six years, so I definitely don't need one for myself (yet)...
  16. Nightstand Drawers/Valet

    Wanted to build something small with some pine I had sitting around in the shop. Figured I could use a nice small place to put my keys and wallet etc at the end of the day. All pine except for the drawer bottoms which are leftover cherry ply. Finished with green milk paint and wax. Pulls...
  17. Woodworking Skill Share
    While I do not do much real wood working, I do enough to be frustrated. Today's frustration is warped and cupped boards. So one goes out to the lumber yard and buys some boards and you pick out those with the least amount of warp and cupping. Somehow, by the time you get it home - shazam...
  18. Woodworking Skill Share
    I recently built a small filing cabinet, and painted it white. I chose to build with pine since it's cheap and would be painted anyway. Unfortunately I can see accents of the wood grain through the paint. It almost looks like imitation wood siding. I'm now building some more furniture that i...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm getting ready to build a sanding cabinet for my sandpaper sheets, discs, pads, blocks, etc. like this one: and I'm wondering how you guys keep your sandpaper flat. In the projects I've seen everyone just lays their sandpaper on a tray. My experience with sandpaper is that it tends to...
  20. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Greetings-Looking for information, plans, etc. (for free or for purchase) on making a California-King four-poster bed. Something like here: http://www.potterybarn.com/products/farmhouse-canopy-bed/popup/more-views.html but with the bottom being a platform bed with drawers (probably six to a...
