  1. Penny Table

    I took a trashed wine table and turned it into a beautiful piece of furniture that is sure to be valued as a family heirloom. A little bit of finish work, pennies, and glazing does the trick. Years ago I acquired this table from my grandmother. At one time it had a leather top. My first...
  2. 2017 Christmas gifts for the Families

    Getting an early start on all the 2017 Christmas gifts. We decided to do a mass production run to cover three generations of our two families. The females will receive music boxes while the males will receive storage boxes. The difference between the two groups is the storage boxes have no...

    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...

  5. Pine is fine!

    The 3 year old needed a step stool to be able to reach and turn the water on in our bathroom. Up until now the adventurous little rascal had been stacking his plastic step stools from other rooms, one on top of the other to reach…. inventive little creature :O The overall design was taken from...
  6. Beach Theme Murphy Bed Loft | Custom

    What is it? Is it lockers? A loft? A Murphy bed? It is all three. This is a loft bed with an added murphy bed on the lower section. It is based off my baseball loft murphy bed. It is similar in the design I just changed the theme and overall look. The inspiration came from Pottery Barns...
  7. Ordnance (bomb) plaque

    Bomb wall mount I made for a Navy AO (Ordnanceman). He wanted a black stripe down the middle because that's what they wear on the flight deck. I love my router, I did everything by hand, freehand an idea first then hand rouder everything out. And I also love cedar. I don't know, there's...
  8. Pizza Paddle

    Not sure what this is but I had fun making it. Oak handle with walmut and poplar paddle. Now if I can keep mamma from using it on me I'll be ok.
  9. Home Plate Baseball Desk | Custom

    Batter up! This is a desk that was built along with the Special Edition Baseball Locker murphy bed. It is shaped like the home plate and uses bats for the legs. I built this one in February 2010. This is the first time I've built this one using ash wood. The home plate top is MDF painted with...
  10. Elvis Whirligig

    This is my entry for the 2013 Whirligig Wars contest held by Laney Shaughnessy and Steve Ramsey. I challenged myself this year to make a character with all arms and legs animated. Elvis is made from solid aspen, and the tail and propeller are made from birch plywood. I printed the face and...
  11. Mahogany Thank You Card

    Well here's the mahogany Thank you card that i made for another woodworker who helped me out a lot. as the title says its made out of mahogany that i had around the shop. You can see me build it in my thank you card blog too. Other than that there's not much more to say about it. The top piece...
  12. Karl - Elf Tree Ornament

    Meet Karl…Karl has a drinking problem and unfortunately whenever he gets drunk he becomes beastly! The problem is that Karl knows the combination to the lock to Santa's secret stash, and he can often be a huge disruption to the other elves in the workshop. Santa has thought several times about...
  13. Kitchen Remodel

    As per usual, the wife wanted another room in the house updated. This time it was the big room! Old cabinets were the typical oak/particle board crap, with Formica tops and a hideous back splash, so a full tear out was needed. The cases are primarily pre-finished birch ply, which is awesome...
  14. Arts and Crafts Desk Lamp

    This lamp is a variation of an Arts and Crafts Table lamp that I posted in http://lumberjocks.com/projects/139721. It is virtually the same proportionally as my my previous lamp other than the obvious, it has two columns, the base is larger, and the shade is wider front and back. As with my...
  15. Two tone island

    This is an island I just completed for the same people I made the entertainment unit for. It is all made of birch with mitered raised panel doors stained white and glazed and the flutes/base stained red walnut to match their entertainment unit and kitchen.
  16. The Milk House Cabinet

    While doing a cabinet for the kitchen, I got the fronts and backs for one drawer reversed in the dovetail jig. It was 3/4 " Popular so I stuck it together and it laid around the shop for a while. One day I decided it was time to do something with it. I rabbited the back and dadoed in a couple...
  17. Maloof/Nakashima inspired settee.

    This was a bucket list project. I wanted to blend the two styles that inspire me. Sam Maloof and George Nakashima. The famous Maloof joint and the use of less than perfect wood and live edge I believe makes this project a success. I didn't have any plans other than a sketch I did myself...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    A few years ago I purchased a Rigid Jointer out of the box, set it up and used it with marginal success and went on to other more pressing projects. Over the years had occasion to use a few times but it didn't seem to do what I had anticipated it should do and on more than one occasion went...
  19. Finishing
    Hi Everyone, I am working on finishing my set of night stands (latest blog entry here) and after looking through the wide collection of often (for me) confusing and (sometimes) contrary advice on the internet on how to finish cherry I have decided to use the method outlined on this site...
  20. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hello, I am rather new to lumberjocks and thought I would try to get some feedback on a particular dilemma I have. For Mothers day I built my wife a dining table out of maple with three african paduke squares set down the middle of the table. I then sprayed the table with poly then applied the...
