  1. Frame and Panel Desk

    Hello all, This is my first project post. I am more than willing to accept advice from you more experienced wood workers. Most of my work, including this desk, is built out of neccessity. So, if you have any tips on giving a project like this a little more flare, bring it on. The majority...
  2. Gift Toy Box

    This is a gift for some friends of ours little girl's first birthday. Made from completely from spruce. It features raised panels on all sides and the frame is made with tongue and groove construction. The corners are formed using tongue and grooves also. The lid is attached used a piano hinge...
  3. Bath Vanity 2

    This is a vanity that I built for my neighbor. The carcass is birch ply and the doors and face frames are pine the wall cabinets have reeded glass inserts (who knew that stuff was so expensive?). The granite top was purchased off the shelf at the depot.
  4. chess board

    This is my first chess board and i am fairly pleased with the results. I have not figured out what to do about the chess pieces (quality pieces are more expensive than i originally thought). originally the inside was going to consist of compartments for each piece and during the building...
  5. Frame-and-Panel Toybox with Splined Miters

    I started building this toybox for my son months ago. I missed the deadline (his 3rd birthday) by a couple days. Other than the hinge and anticipated lid supports, there are no screws or nails in this box. The box is lightweight but rugged enough that the owner can sit on top or inside...
  6. Frame & Panel Cabinet / Toy Cupboard

    Finally finished this one… I've been working on it off & on since September - two kids makes for much less time in the shop. This is another one of my projects that started as a simple idea, and grew out of hand. I wanted to make a quick & easy cupboard of some sort to "hide" the...
  7. Floating Table

    Good morning all, It has been awhile since my last post, been busy with the navy over the summer and now finally getting back into the shop. My wife wanted a table for her chair in the bedroom, so with the scraps I had in the shop I came up with this table. The legs, aprons, and top is made...
  8. Honey-Do Sign redux

    So this was a replacement project for my wife's shop that I had originally made 2 years ago. At the time, I used vinyl lettering for her logo and then polyurethane over top. I didn't realize that the outdoor location of the sign would get pummeled with sun, rain, snow, and crazy temperature...
  9. Headboard and Footboard

    Solid birch headboard and footboard for a three-quarter bed. Frame and panel construction using 1 1/2" thick frame pieces. Raised panel is 3/4" thick. Grain uniformity achieved by using wide boards so that no edge gluing of boards was necessary except for the panels. Rails are joined to the...
  10. Carved Frame and Panel Chest

    My daughter got married in September and I was a bit late getting this finished. The chest was featured in FWW a few months ago but I added the lower panel, coped all the joints instead of stopped chamfers, and carved celtic knots by hand instead of using the router alone. It was my first...
  11. cherry chest of drawers

    This is my masterpiece so far, it was a Christmas present for my wife. It is made of almost all solid cherry with poplar drawer parts as a secondary wood. The top is joined to the sides with hand cut through dovetails. The drawers feature hand cut half blinds at the front and through dovetails...
  12. Small Jewelry Cabinet

    I made this jewelry cabinet from sapele, except for the back, which is just plywood.I modified the design from a shaker cabinet featured in a magazine a few years ago. The original plan had a single door and shelves inside. (It seems a little obvious now, but when I made the change, it really...
  13. My kitchen cabinets

    This is my first attempt at frame and panels and i am quite proud. I try my best to highly accurate. Having no gaps or holes is very important. THese meet my standards. THere are no gaps, cracks or anything of the such in these panels. The wife and i were deciding on what room to do first in...
  14. Drill Press Cart from scraps

    I am doing some shop transformations now to accomodate my change in doing things and a movement towards more hand tool work. One of the things I needed to do was move my drill press of the counter top and onto it's own surface. In the process of tearing out a cabinet I will not be using any...
  15. Toy box & bench for my daughter

    This is a toy box for my almost-3-year-old daughter, Hannah. It's frame-and-panel construction using 3/4" poplar for the frames, 1/4" MDF for the panels, 3/4" plywood for the bottom and top, with the top upholstered then wrapped in a 3/4" thick, mitered poplar frame. It's painted with Behr...
  16. Litter Box Cabinet

    A very early project of mine was a litter box to match our bathroom cabinets (and bathroom for that matter). It was also my first set of raised panel doors. Lesson learned: don't use crappy raised panel router bits unless you like sanding. This piece was also made before I took into account...
  17. Closet Storage Unit

    I created this out of necessity because the old brownstone we live in is lacking sufficient closets. KT and I have a good deal of open-air space and high ceilings but we sacrifice storage space. The loft has a small 5 foot wide (only 22" deep) closet augmented by an unfortunate particle board...
  18. Celebrate Hope Chest

    Description: I built this chest for Hope Rising, a charity that helps local non-profits in the D.C. region. At Celebrate Hope, their annual fund raising event, they auction off donated items from local businesses and individuals. I decided to make this chest, because I thought it fit right in...
  19. Sandpaper Storage

    In an effort to control the chaos in the shop, I built a set of shelves to hold my sandpaper. I blogged the build so if you're interested in the details of the construction, that's the best place to look. 1. Building the frame 2. Rear frame glue up 3. Front frame & shelf supports 4. The big...
  20. Walnut frame and panel dresser

    My wife and I are expecting our first child any day now, so I'm happy to finally have this dresser done! It will be for my daughter, and will also serve as a changing table for her. I've been working on it for about 3 months in my mostly hand tool shop (plus bandsaw, planer, drill press), and...
