  1. Toddler Bed "Compromise" - I think I won!

    Little man just turned 2 and it is time for a toddler bed. I google image searched "toddler bed". I saw a lot I liked, but the one I was most intrigued with was the Oeuf bed. I liked the two tone finish and the lines of the bed rails. My wife, on the other hand was not sold on the two-tone...
  2. bandsaw box

    This box came about as I have recently purchased a bandsaw (Scheppach Basato 3h vario, very good so far) and I was asked to make a gift for someone with the initial S. I made this by making a blank from mahogany and hardwood ply, and cutting out on the bandsaw in the normal bandsaw box way...
  3. walnut bookcase

    This bookcase was my first design that incorporated stained glass. The branches are solid solder with a black patina. I used SOSS invisible hinges for the doors.
  4. BABY CHANGING TABLE/DRESSER

    My wife wanted a changing table for our first son. I asked her what she wanted as far as shelving, drawers, etc. and I went from there to design this changing table. What she didn't know was that I also designed it to have the top portion to come off so that when our son was older he could use...
  5. Small aquarium stand

    Last weekend I have built a simple stand for a small aquarium - birthday present for a friend. The style needed to match other furniture in the room. Very straightforward build - used 12" poplar boards from HD. Glued up legs to double thickness. Legs are tilted out 5 degrees for stability, and...
  6. Vintage post office box door restoration for wooden banks

    I like to collect these vintage p.o. box doors to make little banks and give them as gifts. The most enjoyable part of the process for me is the restoration of the door. Most of the ones I will buy are from the 1930's or earlier. A few are from the 1880's. Although not terribly sophisticated...

  8. Serpentine Wood Gear Clock

    I present to you, Serpentine Wood Gear Clock. This is a clock that is designed by Jeffrey Schierenbeck and is offered as either plans with a hardware pack or a complete laser cut kit. A couple years ago, I bought the plans from Jeffrey and had planned on building the clock eventually. Well, two...
  9. Photos Transferred to Wood, with how-to video

    I found an easy way to transfer photos onto wood. The process uses something called Matte Gel Medium which is a paint base that you can buy at any craft store. The medium goes onto the prepared wood like a paste, spread with foam brushes, then the photo gets smoothed on. After drying overnight...
  10. First Cajon Drums (Awesome Veneer)

    I have heard these cajon (pronounced ku - hone) drums played on a couple occasions. They sound neat when played amongst other acoustic instruments. And hey, it's only a box, so I thought I would give it a try! I followed the measurements and construction techniques of Joe Cruz as outlined by a...
  11. Lucio's Glider Chair

    I stepped it up a bit on this project for my son's third birthday. Although he is not much of a sitter, he does like his chair very much and it adds a wonderful look to the living room. I actually bought a local olive log from a customer at our Woodcraft store. I had Kevin, a friend of mine...
  12. Pagoda Tile Frame

    We've got several tiles laying around that I've promised to frame. I've really liked Dan's frames, so I browsed through my favorites and found Dan's pagoda frame. I was waiting for something to dry/cure, so I thought I'd rip one out real quick. Ironically, I had just commented on someone...
  13. Triceroclock

    A neighbor saw me getting into wood clock making and asked if i could design her a clock for her grandson's room. PS. He LOVES dinosaurs. The above item is the result. I had originally attempted to use marquetry techniques, but the lacewood veneer I attempted to make the body out of was too...
  14. Dog Food Stand

    I started this before the accident. It's made out of the scrap wood from the night stand project. I hand cut half of the mortises and was getting frustrated. I vowed to finish it when I got my mortiser. The other half went very quickly. I used this project to learn about chip out. It's not...
  15. Table that motion

    A few days ago, an elderly neighbor approached me in my garage shop, and asked if i knew where he could get pre-turned legs for a small table he wanted to build. I mentioned he might find some turned spindles at "CasaDePot", but he replied that he used to buy legs with bolts set in them, ready...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    I've read several posts discussing ways to prevent Waterlox from gelling up. My question is this, Is there anything you can do after it has gelled up? Can it be thinned back out in any way. Can anything in the can be used to produce the same result. I poured out some of the gel on plate and...
  17. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am wanting to turn pens other than the cross style refill pen kits. I have everything I need to make slimline and designer pen kits at 7mm. I'd like to make pens that will accept the gel inserts and I know that they are larger than these will accept. What is the name or style of a common kit...

    Video Blog: Finishing Softwoods For the last month or so I have been experimenting with different ways to finish our douglas fir woodwork. It had been stripped and stained. Fir stains very blotchy. I tried : pre-stain conditioner…. shellac…. gel stain… It all turned out blotchy. Final...

    Templates So, between TreeFrogFurniture.BlogSpot.com and Robert Lang's book "More Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture", I decided that the corner of our dining room could stand an accent table. TreeFrog has built two different styles, so I "borrowed" the plans for the one I liked (he posted...

    JAVA GEL STAIN HELLO We just completed a project with our front doors. The stain was old so we sanding them down, cleaned them well and applied the Java stain. They look amazing. Do I have to use the top coat for front doors? They do not really have sun exposure. What happens if I do not?
