The front speaker grill s made out of a Baltic birch frame and speaker fabric that was hot glued to the frame. The finish...
  2. Bookcase for Baby Girls Room

    Hey guys. Its been a busy time for me with a growing 10 month little girl in the house. I don't know how some of you have the time to complete such awesome projects with kids. Still working on managing my time to get out in the shop. We moved last August and we did not own any bookcases...
  3. QSWO Mission Style Media Cabinet - M&T

    Finally finished this beast. This is my biggest project yet. When I started it 4 months ago, I had a lot of questions. I came to the forum for help, and I appreciate all of the advise I got from you guys. There are nearly 80 mortise and tenons on this piece. To start this project, I picked...
  4. Mahogany TV stand

    I finally finished my African Mahogany TV stand. I designed it myself. I'm waiting for the knobs, they are on order. If you interested in the design and making of this project I created a blog or you can visit my website which will have the construction in more detail. Angela
  5. Mahogany Bookcase

    This is my first project that I designed from the ground up. The case and shelves are 3/4 "Genuine" Mahogany ply while the face frame and shelf edging is African Mahogany. The entire project was dyed using Potassium Dichromate in order to get a color match between the two Mahogany species. The...
  6. Cremains Box for My Church

    Some of my church members came to me asking for a box to use during funeral services where the deceased was cremated. I had made a box earlier in the year for my mother-in-law's cremains (see blog link below) and when I showed them the photos of that box, they asked that the new box be fashioned...
  7. Old English Farmhouse Dining Table

    I make 4-8 of these a month. Various color and woods. This one has an antique white over medium gray distressed base with a solid ash top. Top is finished with 1 coat of emtech sealer and 3 coats of emtech 6000. The base has 2 coats of 6000 over the paint. Credenza and bench to match. The chairs...
  8. 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...
  9. Hallway shoe storage cabinet

    At long last I have finished the shoe storage bench for the hallway in our house. Here are a few pictures of it. The top is stained pecan with at least 6 coats of polyurethane - General Finishes High Performance Top Coat - water based. The rest was painted with a flat brick/barn red paint and...
  10. Industrial Modern Table - Sweet Gum w/ Brass Accents

    Hey Guys, I recently finished this Industrial Modern table with a Sweetgum top and Modern Brass/Gold accents on the steel table frame. I used the Festool Domino to do "Cheater" breadboard ends. The finish is General Finishes Arm R Seal Oil and Poly, love that stuff. I am also going to be...
  11. Baby Gates

    Well, my little girl is 17 months now and running all over the place so we needed some baby gates to keep her at bay. Since I started woodworking right around the time she was born and because of the non-existence of railings in our house (and the L shape portion going into the English...
  12. LP Coffee Table

    I built this table as a gift for a friend's birthday. Simple MDF frame with plywood drawers and a wormy maple/glass top. I built a sort of shadowbox or recess under the top glass and put records in it. I got the idea from another project I saw on LumberJocks: I took it one step further and...
  13. Finally Completed: My First Cutting Booooarrrddddd!

    Wow, my first end grain cutting board (and first cutting board overall,) was much more of an endeavor than I thought it was going to be! I knew there were going to be several glue-ups, but there were several more than that, as I had to remove wind checks from the maple, and also rebalance the...
  14. BunkBeds

    This is a set of Oak Bunk-beds that I built for my daughter, and grandkids. Solid Oak machined from rough lumber, stained w/Minwax Golden Oak, and finished with three coats of General Finishes wipe-on Seal-A-Cell, then Arm-R-Seal Topcoat. It was a stretch for me, but they came out pretty good...
  15. Bathroom vanity and matching laundry room cabinet

    We built our house back in 2012, but recently got around to completely finishing the basement. I decided to build a bathroom vanity and matching cabinet for the laundry room. Also, I decided to do the rest of the work in the bathroom as well (tile, floor, etc…) This was one of those projects...
  16. Wine Barrel Old Glory with mounted F/A-18 Hornet

    I love making flags from old wine or whiskey barrels but I needed something to amp this one up a little. I added a Sapele F/A-18 Hornet and seems to be a nice finishing touch. Fly Navy.
  17. Danish cord entry bench

    This is a two-sitter entry bench with a seat made of Danish cord. I borrowed the idea from projects posted here on LJ, mostly this one. The weaving technique, materials, tools and patterns are explained in this great video by Ed Hammond. His tutorial seems to be the only one that covers the...
  18. Son's "first" Project

    For my son's fourth birthday, I made him a project kit of this step stool. Since his attention span is short and his thinking that things are made instantly, I completed the project including the finish. All he had to do is glue the joints and hammer in the Miller dowels! Once the glue was...
  19. Buffet/Hutch

    I've been wanting to use milk paint to create a look like this for a few years. Just an mdf buffet/hutch that I got from craigslist. It was white to start off. I primed it first. Using General Finishes "milk" paint I painted it red twice in the areas I thought I might reveal later. I then...
  20. Cake Pop Stands

    Hello everyone. This is my first official project on LJs (and first non-shop project that I've ever done since starting woodworking in October 2011). My sister-in-law is a baker and she makes cake pops, basically lollipops made of cake for those that aren't aware. She was making some for a...
