    Bunk beds built from planed 2×4's for a "knotty pine look" (i.e. #2 & better Douglas fir 2×4's). head boards and foot boards are all frame and panel and mortise and tennon construction. Built for some friends - they finished it with a very light stain and rub on poly.

  3. End Grain Top, A true labor of love

    I have had the opportunity to build several, end grain, butcher block cutting boards when a close friend asked if i could make a counter top for a kitchen island. The process is the same, but it is considerably more work to build a larger top…especially in a small shop like mine. I was...
  4. Drill Press Station - Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander

    Drill Press Station - Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander My drill press is a small inexpensive bench top type, and until I get a good floor type one I am trying to get the best out of it. One of the first things I did was to change its old pole with a stainless steel one. Why stainless steel...
  5. Underwater World

    Hello all, it's been awhile since I posted a project because of my broken hand and then playing catch up to get some projects done.

  11. Wood storage

    This is nothing special, but my solution to putting wood up and saving floor space. I don't have a shop, so I needed a place to store wood off the ground to make more space in the garage. These 2×6 boards were left covering the pool when I bought this home. Good boards, so I saved them for...
