  1. Herringbone Table Set

    I made this 3 piece living room table set based originally on the coffee table plans here: https://www.buildsomething.com/plans/P4FEE5B54793D86E3/HerringboneCoffeeTable Made from southern pine. Table tops are finished with minwax dark walnut stain and 3 coats of satin poly. Fun project, and...
  2. End grain cutting board

    This is my take on the brick and mortar style cutting board. May look fairly simple but there were plenty of glue ups. Added one individual padauk brick for a nice accent among the sea of walnut bricks. Board ended up 12" square x 1.5"
  3. Hexagon Shelves on Herringbone Panel

    Over a few months, I made a group of hexagon shelves attached to a framed panel of boards arranged in a herringbone pattern. The whole thing is quite large: ~6ft. x 3ft. To make it easier to move, I designed the panel to be modular so it can break down into smaller pieces. The hexagons are...
  4. Red & White Oak Herringbone

    Here is a sample of our reclaimed, tongue & grooved Herringbone flooring made of red and white oak that we are currently installing in a NJ home.
  5. Entertainment center

    I needed a smaller entertainment center since we wall-mounted the TV so this is want I came up with. I had some rift oak flooring planks left over from a recent job to I put them to use for the top. I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
  6. Herringbone Bed Frame

    My wife asked for a new bed frame. We set out looking at Lumberjocks and I told her to pick whichever she liked as the inspiration. She picked one very similar to this that was submitted by Mike Merzke. Thank you Mike for the inspiration! It was my first time producing raised panels. It was...
  7. Cutting boards for Christmas 2017

    Christmas 2017, everyone got cutting boards. Looked up every board I could find on lumber jocks and made one or two of them. So many pretty woods so little time. It's 2020 and no one has complained they fell apart. Fingers crossed…..
  8. Herringbone sliding lid wine gift box

    We've got some neighbors who have been helpful since we bought our new place in New Mexico. Now that my shop is mostly functional, I wanted to do something nice for them, and figured I'd give them a bottle of wine in a nice handmade gift box. The box is elm left over from building my low...
  9. Herringbone pattern serving tray

    My wife had been wanting a serving tray for some time, and I think she felt she couldn't buy one because I always told her "I could easily make you one". Well I finally got around to it. I made this tray as a Christmas gift for her. It's made of walnut (the same scraps I salvaged from an old...
  10. 3 Generations of Herringbone Tray

    These are three variations of the herringbone tray in Woodcraft magazine from about 08. (Picture 1) The first one I made according to the plans and it came out OK. I thought it was a little bland so the next time around I made it a bit bigger, added padauk and purpleheart woods, cut the strips...
  11. Christmas End-Grain Herringbone Cutting Boards

    These are a couple from a series of similar boards, they're all herringbone-patterned end grain boards measuring approximately 13×9x1". Finished with Howard Butcher Block Conditioner (mineral oil, beeswax, carnuba wax).
  12. Know who's office your walking into.

    A pair of inlaid frames for my boss. He had these two granite tiles, but no frames for them. So, in standard woodworker fashion I declared, I'll make ya something boss. Two months later, here they are. It was my first attempt at inlay. I had some purple heart, and rock maple scrap from a...
  13. Herringbone Coffee Table Top

    I'm getting into woodworking more, and this was one of my first "big" woodworking project that wasn't baseboard/casing, etc. I do a lot of remodeling stuff, but not playing around with wood. I accidentally broke the glass from my wife's favorite coffee table and knew this is what she wanted if...
  14. All in One Cat Bot Pallet Wood Project

    My wife has been bugging me more and more recently about getting the kitty litter box out of our pantry (Yuck.. I know..) and to create something for all the cat stuff to go in. I was thinking about using some fancy wood but I know she likes the rustic look and I've had a bunch of pallets laying...
  15. Repairing an Interesting Handmade Box

    A friend/client asked me to repair this box recently. We speculated it was most likely English, mid to late 19th century. While I was repairing it though, some clues were presented that led us to believe that that might not be the case. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has...
  16. Simple Frame

    My wife and I needed a frame for a picture we wanted to give our Grandmother for her 80th birthday. We are flying to Virginia Beach in the morning to spend a great weekend celebrating life. I made this today in a few hours. It's tiger maple and strips of ebony. Again lack of a macro lens isn't...
  17. My Dream Outfeed Table / Workbench

    It feels so good to have a proper place to ponder current projects! My workbench/outfeed table is finished and I couldn't be happier with it! I made most of the base from a plan I saw on ana-white.com, a simple & sturdy workbench, but I wanted to add an inspiring top. I had 2 pallets of gorgeous...
  18. Walnut Herringbone Tray

    It's been a few months since I had anything worth showing off, but here we go! My sister called me up a while back and told me about a horrible ordeal that she was going through. She had been searching the internet for hours to find a serving tray that she liked. She claimed everything...
  19. Barnwood w/ bark inlay..Coffee Table/End Table Set

    Some friends gave me some very old barnwood (a true 1"x12"). I didn't have a pattern, but rather an idea of what I wanted these to look like. I ripped the top pieces into narrow strips and created a herringbone pattern, but also wanted to incorporate the bark somewhere in the tables…...and this...
  20. herringbone outdoor table top

    I was asked to make an outdoor table top based off a picture the client had seen for a DIY project. The top was in a herringbone style. I sketched it up (not really, used SketchUp) in a few different formats hoping to get them to reconsider the herringbone pattern. I was hoping to make the...
