  1. Mission Flip-top Side Table

    I just started woodworking a couple years ago. I've been working on small projects as I collect more tools. This is the first project I've posted. I just finished it up last week. It's by far my most elaborate project and I gained some good experience. I used 4 different joinery techniques...
  2. Picture Frame

    My 10 yr old nephew was visiting so I decided we'd make something together for his mom. We made a distressed frame just like this one out of poplar. I had him gather up some small concrete pieces laying around and put them in a plastic sack. He lightly beat the wood pieces with it. After...
  3. Poplar coffee table

    I built this table out of poplar mostly because it was for a friend on a very tight budget. But he didn't want to go to ikea and he needed a table so I told him I'd do it for him on the cheap. It's made from 5/4 lumber and planed down to one inch. The legs are laminated from scrap leftover from...
  4. Daughter's Pirate Chest

    Built this for my daughter over a weekend. Coopered lid, made from poplar and pine scraps. Inset hinges/lock. Finished with dye - gel stain - poly. Daughter and I beat it with sticks, keys, rocks, etc to get a worn look, she loved that part! Made a hand built, removable till inside that...
  5. Wine Glass Shelf

    I saw one of these at an antique store and since my wife and I needed a stemware storage location, I thought it would do good to fill the need. Also, it was an excuse to use my new Delta 12 1/2 inch planer. The shelf is made of scrap pallet wood that I had. After several runs through the...
  6. Cherry Hall Mirror

    Here's another mirror in my "journey in wood". After an oak and sapele mirror this one is cherry. I built it for my sister as a house warming gift. I'm working on a walnut one for my mother currently. The finish is a Minwax Cherrywood gel stain. This was my first time using a gel stain. It...
  7. A Fun & Easy Project

    After a recent difficult project which took longer to build and was harder then expected, I needed an easy fun project to build. And, with Christmas coming right around the corner, I thought some game boards were in order. They always make nice, small presents. So, I happened to get Woodsmith...
  8. Stepstool for a Friend's Wife

    This is a stool I made for a friend of mine a few weeks ago whose wife was about to have a baby. They happen to have a pretty tall bed and a stool would be a great help for a new mother trying to climb into a high bed like that after going through childbirth. My friend and I were looking...
  9. Pine Entertainment Center

    Last year I got tired of having my plasma sitting precariously on a stool and my A/V equipment stacked on the floor. This was my own design built from clear pine from Home Depot. I built this using only a circular saw, a router, a hand saw, and a few sanders, and I built it (unwisely) on the...
  10. My First Clock

    I've finally completed this craftsman style clock. I don't know how long it took me, but I'm glad it's done. Had a couple months away from the shop during this project after my son was born. (His 3 older sisters absolutely love him!!) First off, huge thanks goes out to LJ. This site is simply...
  11. Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair Recliner

    This is my Morris Chair. It is made from pine that I got for free from a friend of a friend's old bookshelf. When I got the wood some of it was badly warped, there were a few screw holes in a bunch of places that I had to plug, and it was discolored from years of use so I pre-sanded everything...
  12. 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...
  13. End tables a much need

    Darling wife needed a couple new simple end tables for the Florida room so I thought I'd knock these out in a couple weekends before i start tackling a long awaited dresser and bed side tables. Wanted to test a tapering jig for the legs and gel stain and poly over poplar tops. She wanted...
  14. My Daughter's Dresser

    A long overdue dresser for my 6 year old daughter. Hopefully, it has enough capacity so I don't have to listen to, "I don't have anything to wear!", when she's a bit older. Everything is [solid] Hard Maple with the exception of the drawer boxes (1/2" Maple Ply). The darker color is General...
  15. Mobile Tool Carts (for my vintage radial arm saws)

    I made two mobile cabinets/carts that will be used as stands for my vintage DeWalt radial arm saws. The cabinets were made from maple and plywood. These were built heavy duty to support the weight of these cast-iron saws. Here's a video that shows more photos and construction details:
  16. stained poplar plant stand

    i've been working on my lap joints and dados, and am pretty pleased so far. the stain on poplar? not so much… i wanted a good deal of contrast between the legs of the little plant stand and the horizontal supports. tested 5 different gel stains after a coat of zinsser sanding sealer - result...
  17. My first LJ Project: Shoe Rack

    This is my first project since joining LJ. I blogged about it here: http://lumberjocks.com/JonathanG/blog/13293 I am new to woodworking, so wanted to do something fairly easy and straightforward. I built this using only pocket hole joinery and a little glue on the frame. Just got the Kreg Jig...
  18. Glider Bench

    This is one of four Spring/Summer projects I'm completing, to clear out shop for winter work. This project came about as I cleaned the shop after my bed, dresser and armoire projects. It was a lot of the shop scrap, Curly Maple, Cherry and some Walnut from an earlier project. they were glued up...

  20. Simple cherry table

    Hello! This is my first real project after seriously diving into this new hobby late last summer (a lil late posting it). Made from cherry. It utilized my first mortises and tenons, with biscuits to attach the bottom shelf. I wanted my first project to be a piece of furniture that I can...
