  2. Trex Deck

    I built this for a friend whose old deck was rotting away. The replacement is the exact shape, just a different layout. The previous owner, who built the deck, poured concrete right up to the old deck, so the new one had to fit the concrete form exactly. She had me put hidden trap doors into...

  4. Custom shutters

    Another project from our "smaller", first house here. When we bought the house it had dried and faded shutters on just two front facing windows and when I priced out getting a set of plastic/vinyl for all the windows I was shocked by the price! Solution: buy some regular #2 pine and start...
  5. Home on the Hill - Intarsia Woodworking

    Creating custom intarsia woodworking often finds its best design from a story. One stormy day in April, not very different from any other day, tragedy struck in Alabama. My father was out for the morning working as usual. He decided to come home early because there were some reports that bad...

    Not really a long posting tonight , I'm exhausted, and I need to get back to the shop and work on something that has to ship soon.

  8. Homemade 15" Bandsaw

    My first post! Back in September 2011, I bought plans for a 16" bandsaw from Matthias Wandel of woodgears.ca. It took me a little over 9 months to complete this bandsaw, but it was well worth the wait. The frame of this saw is laminated spruce, which, while being very cost effective and...
  9. Desk for Home Office

    So, the first time I got interested in wood work was in 2004 when a local company quoted me almost 6 grand to install a desk in a bay window of the room I use as my home office. Not only was the price eye watering but the dimensions were limited. So I took a 10 week evening class at Norwich...
  10. Home Office

    The custom desk project was built to fit into this room. We took the original design from the architect, and some comments from the owner, and came up with this. It is a combination of both of their ideas, plus a few of our own. The hardwood is Mahogany. The veneers are Quilted Makore. The...

    A client was having a new house built and wanted several rooms fitted out with cabinets. The wood used is Mahoany, and the veneer is Quilted Makore.

  13. Forming the Round Doors for the Home office

    In the home office project, there are large curved door. At the time of writing about the project, the pictures showing the form work were mixed in with over a thousand other pictures. Well, we found them, and I thought some people would like to see how it was done. To be honest I forgot how it...

    Finally finished remodeling my master bedroom and there was a lot of wood work done in it. Stripped everything out and painted the walls gray and the ceiling light gray.

  16. Home made Hand Planes

    Both of these hand planes are made with purple heart and brass. I like making hand planes and thought it would be fun to make a nice set. I did make another one like the one on the left and put it on ebay and it sold. So one other person in the world has a fine hand made tool that was hand...
  17. Wooden Cole Jaws

    I needed a set of cole jaws to attach to my Oneway Talon Chuck for my next project, so I decided to make a some. I used the instructions from Wood Central ( http://www.woodcentral.com/cgi-bin/readarticle.pl?dir=turning&file=articles_123.shtml ) to make them. These instructions were easy to...

    I found the plans for this in one of Wood Magazines jigs,fixtures and storage plans. Works like a charm on anything long and inround. If it's out of round, forget it. It's made from 3/4s plywood, rollerblades and T track. If you send me an S.A.S.E. I'll make a copy of the plans for you and send...
  20. Gnarly Fancy Cane #113: Dinosaur Skull Fossil - Az. Ironwood, Manzanita, Shedua & Bubinga/Macawood

    This is made from an extremely gnarly piece of Arizona ironwood that had some live edge to it. The original rough piece of wood was a scrap that probably would have been tossed in a fire but I was intrigued by the extreme contour of the grain and I could see a formation of an animal head of...
