  1. Red Murphy bed (w/bld. pics) | Custom

    This is a Murphy bed that we built in the Smithsonian style, but without a desk. One of the biggest changes we did was to add fluted molding to the bookcases. We added it as a build up and not just as part of the face frame. This gave the crown and base moldings a flared out look. We...
  2. Lathe Fluting Jig

    This jig is based on one John Lucas demonstrated for the Gwinnett Woodworkers Association in February, 2015 (see: ). This fluting jig is a table that mounts in the banjo on the lathe.

The customer wanted a bookcase and I was planning on doing just a simple one that sit on top. After getting into the project I decided to extend the fluting all the way and keep the doors...
  8. Blogs
    Kitchen Window Arches I originally wanted raised panel arches for over the windows in the kitchen similar to some I had seen at Menards. That was three years ago. I drew them up full scale and gave them to the cabinetmaker who did our kitchen. He never got to them so I decided I would make...
