  2. Tablesaw Stand for Vintage Craftsman Saw

    This saw lives at my dad's ranch now, but when it was in my shop, I couldn't have a stationary saw. I work in a 2-car garage, but my wife needs a place to park when I'm not working. So I made a mobile stand. This is it. (Except the second photo. That's a "before" picture.) I made it out of...
  3. Ebonized Walnut Frame with Half-lap miters

    About five years ago, my wife and I went on a trip to Savannah. Down by the river we had our portrait drawn by one of the street artists. That picture has sat on our dresser since then while we hemmed and hawwed about what frame to put it in. I finally decided to just make one. I knew that we...
  4. Hand Joinery Bedside Table

    Quarter-sawn Mahogany, 2010 "Hand Joinery Bedside Table" was my first project completed at Rochester Institute of Technology. The requirements for this piece was to use all hand tools to make a small table, using only the bandsaw to rough out general shapes, every finished surface and all...
  5. Poplar shoe rack

    Here is a shoe rack I made for our narrow entry-way out of poplar. This project was in large part a practice for half-lap joinery. There are 82 such joints throughout the shelves and uprights. The poplar I got was from a local woodworker who was retiring and selling off his nice hardwoods at...

    This is another project for the summer camp I work at. It is a sign board that displays the pictures/cell phone numbers of our 3 staff hosts on duty, it has two 8.5×11 frames for general group information/schedule, and it has a weatherproof literature box to hold our camp maps. This is one of...
  9. Birch Plywood Stools

    Helen Keller walked into a bar, then a table, then a stool…. Here is my first attempt at half-lap joints. I bought a hand miter saw from Lee Valley which made doing the angles much easier, but man what a lot of sawing! One will be used at my daughters IKEA desk and the other one is just a...
  10. Wedding Arch

    My daughter chose "Wood & Lace" as the theme for her wedding. It was an incredible joy and privilege to spend time with her (and her fiance) building the wedding decorations in the months leading up to their special day. See my other projects for four more projects we made for the wedding. We...
  11. Cubbie Bookshelf

    This is my first official completed woodworking project as a "serious woodworker". I've got a lot to learn but I sure absorbed a lot of information during the process of building this bookshelf. I started out with a design that would properly fit the removable bins that you see pictured...
  12. Craftsman Style Frame

    I needed to cover a window opening for more privacy. But i wanted to let as much light in as possible. So i came up with this craftsman style frame. It's red oak that i recycled from a desk top that was thrown out in the trash. It's and easy construction of half lap joints. The square pegs go al...
  13. Heavy Woodworking Workbench - no metal

    Wanted to build a heavy woodworking table/bench for quite a while now. Of course my goal here was a workbench but I was also working on some other skills I have never done so that is why I finished it a little more than I would normally for a shop workbench. This bench was inspired by Jay...
  14. Nakashima style coffee table

    Made a Nakashima inspired coffee/end table for my office. Had an off cut from a 12-4 slab of walnut that was pretty punky and warped, stabilized with resin and flattened with router sled, and lost like half the thickness but the final proportions look good to me. Base is from a 14 inch wide...
  15. Stickley Taboret #603

    A traditional end table would have crowded the area for a neeeded table. Being a fan of Stickley, I decided this would be a fun build. pintodeluxe has a blog on this table where as he and I observed there is a lot of skill building opportunites in this relatively small project.
  16. A set of 3 Frames for Chinese Prints

    A few years ago my son went to China for training. It lasted a few weeks. He was able to buy a set of prints at a local market. I build a set of frames for 3 of them. I chose Asian style joinery and mahogany for the construction. After some searching I found the Japanese Shiro Joint - also...
  17. Origami Paper/Sushi Box

    I have mentioned this box on my podcast a couple of times and I am putting together a blog entry on it's construction. For the time being though here are the finished shots. This box is going into the same auction as the Olive wood pen I just posted. It is made entirely of maple with the...
  18. weird joint oak frame

    I generally do not like to post pictures from my day job but i really liked this frame and the joint in particular. It was a fun build for me particularly working on the joint. I am not sure what this joint is called but the best way i can describe it is a mitered half lap open tenon? If any one...
  19. Wine Racks

    After making a few batches of wine I needed something to store them in. I found a wine rack like this on the internet. The web site gave the overall dimensions and I guessed at the dimensions of the other parts. Made from pine from a local lumber yard which is much better quality than the big...
  20. 2x4 Half Lap Bar Stools

    I made a pair of 24" tall bar stools for a 36" bar that I have on the back side of my kitchen countertop. Finally I have a place to eat as I currently do not have a dining table. I'm not too thrilled with the stain I chose. I doubt I'll use it again. It was a little too dark for this piece and...
