  1. Finishing
    I've sprayed alot of lacquer through the years.... but that doesn't mean I do it right every time. Realize I better pause for advice before moving forward....... I sprayed Sherwin Williams' Sher-Wood Hi-Bild Lacquer Sanding Sealer on some cabinet doors WITHOUT any catalyst added. (wasn't...
  2. Cigarette Teak Case

    A wooden cigarette case made from teak and finished with several coats of lacquer. All walls are 3mm thick except from the back side which is 6mm.
  3. The sycamore box

    Saw this box while surfing recently and liked the look of it, so when a nice piece of sycamore showed up in the shop, I decided to see what I could do. The body of the box is 10" long, 3" hi and 6" front to back. The ends were ebonized with India ink, and the body of the box was dyed with...
  4. Vanity & linen cabinets with matching mirror frame

    These units were part of a gut and redo bathroom project. The cabinet dimensions are exactly the same as the old nasty built-ins I tore out. The client wanted to be able to put everything back into the cabinets in the same orientation as before the renovation. The frame of the mirror is the...
  5. Thor's hammer!

    Behold, Mjölnir! A good friend of mine had a belated birthday party over the weekend. And unbeknownst to him but knownst to us, the theme for the party was none other than THOR, his favorite comic book hero when he was a kid. There were Thor paper plates, winged helmet party hats, a golden...
  6. Class of 2017 Graduate Picture Frame and Tassel Holder

    I designed this Class of 2017 Graduate Picture Frame and Tassel Holder for my son who is graduating from high school this year. It's an easy weekend project. The frame is cut from maple. The mitered frame around the picture is Western Red Cedar, and this creates a rabbet to hold in the 5"x7"...
  7. Laundry Room Floor Cabinet

    October 30, 2011 For about a year now, I've been interested in trying my hand at building a cabinet. This summer (2011) while moving things around in the laundry room we discovered the particleboard floor cabinet in this room was beginning to crumble. My answer… Make another from particle...
  8. Maple Mortise Madness

    120 mortise and tennons, 12 dovetails, a lot of biscuits, a few dowels and there you have it! Two end tables and a couch table made of maple finished with three coats of 35 sheen lacquer. The only mechanical fasteners used are for the undermount soft close slides for the drawer. One end table...
  9. Biscuit Tables

    I just finished two "biscuit tables" for the family room. Called such, due to all joinery being biscuit joinery. I know… not everyone's favorite, but what I chose. The tables are solid poplar with bread-board tops, and 'mission oak' stain with several coats of lacquer.
  10. Craftsman Sliding Closet Doors

    Built these sliding closet doors for my complete house remodel project that's been going on the past 3 years. Built with Quarter sawn white oak. Laminated stiles with a finished dimension of 1-3/8" thick. My first attempt at making doors (besides cabinet doors) and it went really well. I...
  11. Tile Display

    This frame was an anniversary gift to my son Ben and his wife Jenna. I was looking for a project to try out some of the joinery and details often seen in early Arts and Crafts pieces, especially from the Greene and Greene brothers. These "tiles" are actually color prints of tiles that I found...
  12. It's Bigger On The Inside...

    I'm a wee bit of a Doctor Who fan… If you haven't already figured that one out and I'm sure you can all relate to needing more shop space so I figured I'd turn the shop door into a Tardis. I haven't really figured out the interior dimensional changes as of yet but I think it has to do with the...
  13. Weekend woodshop apprentice - chess board

    I had a friend come visit for 2 nights. He asked if I had any design ideas for a chess board. I didn't, but everyone else's projects on Lumber Jocks gave us more than enough designs to chew on. So while the ladies and the baby were catching up in the living room we hung out in the woodshop...
  14. Palletwood King Size Headboard

    This is my first commission piece that was completed this past week. It measures 78" x 48" and has white oak posts. It is finished with Min-wax natural stain (1 coat) and 4 coats of spray lacquer. I was pleased with how it tuned out.
  15. Business card holder

    This is a business card holder for a vendor's display booth. The lady sells Gold Canyon candles and this is "GC" is part of one of their logos. I made it out of some Makore that I had laying around. I used dark walnut stain and 3 coats of lacquer. The wood is an inch think, so I had quite a few...
  16. Wall Mounted Teabowl Display

    My first attempt at dovetails. I made this out of quartersawn oak with handcut dovetails. The finish is Old Masters dark walnut stain, and Old Masters oil-based brushing lacquer colored with a little 'amber-honey' Transtint dye.
  17. Cherry Nightstand

    Built these cherry nightstand for our master bedroom. Wanted a "farmhouse" look but with my own details (breadboard ends). The drawers were particularly difficult but work. Planned on installing functioning locks but as I was fitting the drawers to the openings that idea was out. Escutcheons...
  18. Custom XL Sliding Barn Door

    Here's a massive sliding barn door I recently made for a customer. This thing weighs about 400-500 lbs. and is made of steel, birch plywood, and grey hemlock siding from our lot. It measures 64" wide and 105" tall and slides over into a recess the customer had built into the room. We sprayed the...
  19. Contemporary Reclaimed Barn Wood Sliding Door

    Here's a recent build I did using different barn woods from our lot. The customer picked out all of the different pieces at the lot and then I ripped them, jointed the back side, and brad-nailed/adhered them to the birch plywood. when it was fully assembled, our finish guy did a great lacquer...
  20. Cherry Table

    I made this cherry table a while back. It is 30" x 17" x 27" high. The top is 7/8" thick, but with the routed edge treatment to the bottom it gives it a more delicate look. I thought the bead on the bottom edge of the aprons helped also. The legs are tapered on the two inside faces. I gave it a...
