    This is a submarine door all made from recycled lumber. It is grafted into a standard door which is the door to my office at work.

  2. DIY Engagement Ring Box

    This past weekend I proposed to my long time girlfriend (spoiler - she said yes!). I bought the ring over a month ago, and decided I wanted to build my own engagement ring box. Having no clue how to do that, I would work everyday for 30 minutes either building, researching, filming, or editing...

  4. Assembly Table

    Maybe not a dead flat surface but pretty close. It was time to replace the original table which was built over time with various parts being added as needed. I had a large piece of laminate left over from another project, on 1 1/4" MDF. The old table had a groove down the middle which I used...

  6. Block plane #17

    Dunno if this is the 17th block plane I've made, but it's probably pretty close. I made this plane for the April 2017 Surprise Swap. I don't know why anybody receiving something from me would be surprised to get a plane, though :-) I've made two or three in this style for previous swaps or to...
  7. The last of the box binge, quilted maple

    A small wood vase made from ipe. I applied some dark walnut colored stain to darken the vase. I glued two pieces of window trim together to make start the vase. The vase is around 6" tall. I don't own a lathe, so I made this on a couple of stationary belt sanders. I also made the flowers...
  10. Ipe deck and fence.

    This was a fun project and to date one of my favorites. I spent some quality time with my father constructing the frame and building the wall for the fence. At 80 years old I still can't slow him down. The frame is redwood and the decking and railing is Ipe.
  11. Boxed in eaves with Ipe.

    I used some Ipe decking I bought off of craigslist for real cheep. Ripped it to size, cut tongue and groove then sanded and stained with Australian Timber Oil. Took me three days to install. NOT A FUN PROJECT but was worth every minute.
  12. Adirondack Rockers

    A cousin and her husband asked if I could model the design after a chair they already owned. The only change was that I widen the design by 2 inches. They also requested that I work with ipe, a wood they had used for a deck and absolutely loved. I had never worked with ipe before. At first, I...
  13. Custom Nightstand

    I have a pretty tall bed and hated always having to bend way over to look at the clock on the low nightstand. So I built this tiered nightstand. It give me so much more space on the night stand. I love the mitered upper section that gives it sort of a waterfall effect. Joinery was biscuits on...

    This is a cedar strip canoe that my wife built and I helped. Well, that's her story anyway ;). It took about 5 months, just weekends, 4 years ago.

    This is a Christmas present for my father who has just recently pimped out his back yard with a new patio and outdoor kitchen.
