  1. Kitchen Remodel

    Before buying a new house, I completely gutted my old kitchen and remodeled it, keeping only the ceramic tile floor. The old cabinets were rough plywood, so I built new ones. The top cabinets are hand dove-tailed and have antique German glass on the fronts. I put 6" tongue-and-groove board...

  3. Butcher Block Island

    This is the second iteration of this project. I can post picture of the first but they are pretty much the same except for the wood selection. I built an end grain cutting board for a friend and found it convenient to keep it on an island she had. But the storage was not very good and the...

    This is my first woodworking project I ever did. It was a gift to my wife on her birthday, a mobile kitchen island that she can used in our RV. It's made out of 2×4's and I added an extension. She uses it indoors and also, outdoor when we have guests over. Even if I would do certain things...

    Built an island top for a customer. She contacted me after I posted a picture of a truckload of circular sawn oak from a barn that was been turn down.
