  1. Sewing Cabinet

    Here's a shot of the pile of wood that it started out as: One of my first commissions, a custom sewing cabinet. This project was pretty interesting. I think one of the coolest parts of my job is getting to learn about things that I wouldn't normally. To help my design this piece, I learned...

    This is a fancy custom ladies cane made for a smaller hand. The handle is made from extra fancy Manzanita Burl with a Black Walnut collar and a Purpleheart shaft. The Black walnut collar caught the light in such a way that it illuminated it. This was unintentional but the right angle of the...

  5. Pen and Box

    I just finished these. I made them for my mother-in-law. She was very impressed with the pen and box that I made for my father-in-law for Father's Day, so I decided to make her a set as well. The box is made of claro, the lettering is red oak, and the pen is zebra wood. The pen is just a basic...
  6. Working with the Lathe

    This is my first ever lathe. I bought 12 Shop Smith lathe knives at an auction a few weeks ago for $5 and am having the time learning how to make stuff. Like an artist I just start and when I'm done, I see what's left. Here are some pieces I made from a Cherry tree my neighbor cut a few weeks...

    This is a floating media cabinet that I made for my father in law. The basic goal was to create some sort of storage solution for the media components and dvds that did not sit on the floor and a clean design. It is constructed of oak ply and solid oak edging and drawer fronts. The cabinet is...
  8. Thanks, Harry...

    Hello. My name is Matt. These are my first woodworking "projects." The title of this post, is an homage to Harry Gerstner. One day, about 10 years ago, I saw a Gerstner tool chest for the first time and remember screaming on the inside, "WHAT IS THAT?!! I want one." Then I learned how proud Mr...

  11. Wine Barrel Old Glory with mounted F/A-18 Hornet

    I love making flags from old wine or whiskey barrels but I needed something to amp this one up a little. I added a Sapele F/A-18 Hornet and seems to be a nice finishing touch. Fly Navy.
  12. My new front panel for my Turbinaire System

    I made a brand new front end for my Turbinaire HVLP System. I did'nt like the looks of my new paint job on the front, so I took all the measurements.. downloaded their Logo, then drew it all out in CorelDraw with all the holes for the controls etc. Used some nice DIAL Numbers for the Variable...

    Hi folks, I've already blogged this thing just about to death, so if you want the details, feel free to go check it out. The short version is I found this sort of Lego desk online, decided I had to have it, and spent most of this year cloning the design. It's now done. Along the way I've...
  14. Cake Pop Stands

    Hello everyone. This is my first official project on LJs (and first non-shop project that I've ever done since starting woodworking in October 2011). My sister-in-law is a baker and she makes cake pops, basically lollipops made of cake for those that aren't aware. She was making some for a...
  15. RAS Dust Collection

    I use my RAS… a lot. For the longest time I've had a wheelbarrow behind it where most of the sawdust lands and it is a lot of sawdust. Almost as much as my table saw. I've seen several LJ'ers and Youtubers with various RAS dust collection methods and decided that I like the fence port style...
  16. Live Edge Walnut Mantel Clock

    This piece of curly English walnut came from Talarico Hardwoods in Pennsylvania. I stopped by there over the summer and bought some odds and ends, the coolest of which, in my opinion, was this. It's a little over 2" thick, 25" long and between 5" and 7" tall. I knew what I was going to do with...

    I cut this plaque using a scroll saw using birch ply. Gold brads on frame outside to add flare. Asked to make for a friend.
  18. Mid-Century Modern Nighty McNight Stands

    Mid-century modern shmodern is what I always say. My secretary wants furniture with a mix of wood and glossy smooth white finishes. Because that's what you see these days on the pinterest and houzz apps. And she is in noooo way influenced by those. So here are the first pieces for our bedroom...
  19. Dumpster Stand

    Like some guys make tree stands for deer hunting, this is a dumpster stand for ( safely) dumpster diving. It was made out of necessity to be able to retrieve some very good stock of maple plywood that is discarded by a local company. I made it out of some of the stock from that dumpster plus...
  20. Arts and Crafts Art Frame

    This is my 1st venture back into woodworking after being away for about 25 years. The design is from a Stickley mirror that's something like 36×18. Mine is about 16×29, so I adjusted the proportions a bit untill I thought they looked about right. I did 2 of these. The second is identical...
