Here is my craftsman style coffee table set. They feature 16×16" slate stone tops, and thick quarter sawn oak construction. Most of the stock is 5/4, except the lower rails which are 8/4. I kept the proportions fairly chunky, with five wide slats at each end. Through tenons and some inlayed...

My next door neighbor girl, who I have known for years, who is one of my daughters good friends, is going to graduate this year. She has always made hand made gifts for us on the holidays, and if it wasn't a gift it was a hand made card.

This is a cabinet that I built for a local logger for some cedar lumber and advertisement in another community.
It is Built from Cedar,trim made on router table , will hold ten guns. He wanted solid wooden doors no glass. Finished with some were around five coats of satin spray on lacquer.
I made this cart for my HVLP sprayer so I could get it out of the storage bins.
Top drawer holds the spray gun and all accessories
Middle drawer holds the filters and bigger things (even a one gallon can of finish)
Bottom drawer holds the hose
Two features that I think are handy.
