  1. Murphy Bed with Sofa | Marriott| Custom

    This is a Murphy bed that I finished up in March 2017. I call it the Marriott Murphy Bed. I call it that because the first one I built was for the Marriott hotels chain. The Marriott Murphy bed is characterized by 3" molding and the doors are subdivided into four quadrants. The really cool part...
  2. Collapsible Lap Desk

    I have been doing a lot of work at home recently, and wanted something that would make working on my laptop a little more comfortable. While they may be called laptops, they aren't especially user friendly or comfortable to use while sitting on your lap. While I consider myself pretty tech...
  3. Home Office Cabinets

    A cabinet project I recently completed to convert a small third bedroom into a home office. Upper & Lower Cabinet Carcasses: 3/4" black melamine for most of the cabinet carcasses. Cabinet construction is frameless style with Titebond melamine glue and 7mm x 50mm confirmat screws. 7/8" maple...
  4. Completion of the Home Office T-Desk

    Here is the rest of my original Home Office T-Desk project.The 2 wings are suspended from cleats that screw into the wall studs. The tops are laminated MDF, the same as the desktop. I wanted to practice a couple of techniques with this project, hence the reason the drawers on both sides don't...
  5. Ukulele holder for office

    I spend the lion's share of my day (sometimes night too :-( ) in my home-office upstairs. I decided that I needed a little diversion from my computer every now and then and brought a ukulele up to strum and pick when thinking hard or if the J-O-B gets me down - no one can be unhappy while...
  6. Adam and Eve's Home Office

    This was a replacement project and much needed. What's an office without file drawers? This his & hers home office in Prospect, KY features matching desks with bookcases overhead. Each desk has two deep drawers, a pencil drawer above the knee and a single door with shelves inside. Also features...
  7. MONSTER Built-In Home Office Desk w/ 3 workspaces

    I built this desk with "floating" base cabinets because I didn't wan't to pull up the carpet and base and have to deal with re-installing it. (I decided on this because I thought if we ever sold the house, it would be easier to remove the desk and turn the room back into the second master...
  8. Maple desk w/ Cherry Accents | Custom

    This is a desk that was apart of the last project I posted: "Maple Murphy bed with Cherry Accents". Sometimes you find a unique piece of material hidden in a bundle of wood. That was the case on this one. As I was pulling the material I came across one with a very cool grain. Don't know how...
  9. Horizontal Murphy Bed Bookcase

    It's fun to cram as much stuff as you can into a project and this one had a lot in it. This was an entire home office remodel, but the primary focus of the entire room is this full-wall, horizontal Murphy bed & bookcase combination. From end to end it is around 14 and half feet and top to...
  10. The Vicker Home Office Workstation

    This was an easy project to create because the owner provided a digital rough draft. Features decorative glass doors (glass is called "Flemish"), built-in vent cover, printer pull-out, removable desk option, and decorative trim. Installation was scheduled for a Thursday. Painted was supposed to...
  11. Closet Conversion – Antique Icebox Style

    My wife and I use our third bedroom as a home office. The closet had become a repository for disorganized piles of junk. It had one shelf, but that was it. I wanted to make the space more usable and more consistent with our use of the room as an office. Plus I wanted it to look nice. I used...
  12. Just thought I would share

    Cabinets are done in alder with a custom color. I typically make all my own stains. Can't tell you it's the right way to make stain, but I haven't had a call back for complaints, just call backs to do more work. I ALWAYS do adhesion tests which is something I plan on blogging in the future...
  13. Focus on the Workspace
    I have arthritis among other things and bought about 2 dozen of those mats at Harbor Freight a couple of weeks ago. Was kind of upset when I got home and checked the flier they enclosed advertising them for about half what I paid. They are $5.99 a four pack 2'x2' ea., today and tomorrow. They...
  14. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm putting custom paneling in my "library" using thin slices of African Mahagony. The paneling is being built in place, so I need to be able to add the veneer to a standing wall, hence I can't use the usual techniques like vacuum pressing, or plywood presses with cauls, etc. I tried contact...
  15. Designing Woodworking Projects
    This design is for a home office desk, it is to scale with the measurements below. I'm completely new to putting something like this together. Before I go ahead and put anything together I need to figure out how to add the 2 additional support legs, while still making them detachable and...

    Shop of the Month Hi All; Apparently I joined an Owners Club on Delta's website some time ago. I got an surprise email today from Delta | Porter Cable today, asking for photos of my shop. Soon after submitting some photos, I received another email informing me that my shop has been selected...

  18. Woodworking Skill Share
    This is like the 4th or 5th dovetail I've done by hand so far. Can anyone give me some pointers on to get the pins / tails flush? My chisels are fairly sharp, but I need them sharper I am betting for one. In the first picture the red outline is where I had decided to cut a little deeper to...
