  1. LARGE Entertainment Center

    Here is something I just completed, colors are something that I'm new to but I think It came out alright. I used ebony dye and polyurithane, in the future I think I'll try and find a different option though.
  2. Great Bookcase

    This a bookcase made of solid Walnut and Walnut veneer. Custom was the understatement here. The client has great taste and wanted something unique for their great room. When we first saw the drawings we did not know how we were going to make the solid dome in the top section. We have done many...
  3. A segmented vase for charity

    My parents attend this community Crisis dinner/auction every year. They always donate items to be auctioned off and all of the money raised from this event is used to help abused women and children who have escaped from their homes. This year, I decided to build a segmented vase to be auctioned...
  4. Entertainment Center for 73" TV | Custom

    This is an entertainment center that was completed in February 2010. It was built for a 73" television. The customer gave me free reign on the project. I built is as a "built in" to be built in the shop and assembled on site. I chose Pine wood with a clear coat to match the wall paneling...
  5. 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...
  6. 13" tall candlestick holder

    Yeah, yeah, I know I said my other holder was the last one, but I had a request for a BIIIG one and just couldn't resist the challenge. I turned this behemoth (the largest I've turned so far), nothing else real special here, but I had my first real experience with shrinkage (ha). The top was...
  7. Inspired by Larry

    Well the Larry bug has gotten me too (Degoose). This is my first attempt at an end grain bread board. It is a bit on the small side because that was the extent of my clamps. Expect bigger if maybe not better things in the future as I have just invested in 3 Bessy 600mm clamps. I have no idea...
  8. A Man's Man's Box

    I have a lot to learn about making boxes. I learned quite a bit making this one. I wanted to make a box with a different kind of top. I have been making solid tops mostly, with an occasional inset panel, usually nice plywood with veneer. For this one I decided to rout the sides and top panel...
  9. Walnut and Jatoba Exec. Desk

    Note: Heartwood and grain irregularities were included at client's request.
  10. First Peppermills

    Preparing for the Christmas season I decided to try turning a simple Peppermill set for my in laws. Don't really care for the final shape, was not what I set out for but I screwed up and had to modify… might keep this set and make them one that looks a little better.
  11. Desk Connector | Custom

    This is a project that was completed in December 2009. It is a modification to an existing pair of desk. For some reason I never did a write-up on these desk, but you can catch a glimpse in this project write-up: For more building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or...
  12. Mirrored Face Murphy Bed | Custom

    This is a first for me. It is a Murphy bed with a mirrored face. It is the largest I have ever built. It is 10' wide and 9' tall. After getting the request from the customer I wanted to build it similar to my Ross, contempo, or Excalibur style where I move the feet to the edge. I was then...
  13. Mahogony & Red Oak Dresser #2

    This is the mate to the last dresser I built. The top, sides, and front face are mahogany. The draw faces, toe kick and banding are red oak. Dimensions: 78" wide X 34.25" high x 22" deep. The draws are all blind dovetails (routered), floating bottom, and four side lipped. I took extra care on...
  14. Buffet

    Dining room buffet. This was intended to be a draft version, something to make design mistakes on (and there were a few), to be followed up by a rebuild with more expensive material, but it came out well enough that it will be a long time before it gets rebuilt. There were a handful of firsts...
  15. 8"x8" Timber designs

    Heres some designs Ive come up with for creating projects out of 8"x8" pine. My plan is to start building them for the summer, and hopefully sell some before then! Ive come up with a price of $6 - $8 a board foot, which covers labour and materials. Please let me know what you think! any...
  16. Mahogany & Red Oak Dresser, Part III

    Just finished the second part of this dresser set (the bottom portion was completed back in autumn). The two pieces are intended to stack, but are identical height and both built with the same toe kick so they can work as separate pieces as well. Dimensions are 34.25" high x 18.5" deep x...
  17. Panels from the Big Lynn Lodge, Little Switzerland, NC

    These panels were a commission for the Big Lynn Lodge, in Little Switzerland, North Carolina…a great place if you are in the area. Some are of Oak and some are of Ash. They measure 3'x5', with the exception of the tree, which is 2'x3'. For this job I paid a friend, Kevin Wadell, furniture...
  18. Book shelf and Mantel cap

    Nice little project I did for a customer of mine. They had just the surround with the flutted sides including plinth blocks and capitals (as you can see in the before picture). They were unsure how to cap it off, and wanted to add the built-in book shelves to each side. Built the boxes out of...
  19. Large Dresser | Custom

    This is a large dresser that was completed in March 2010. It is 60"w x 21 1/2"d x 52"h. I originally planned on making it in two units by stacking them, but the customer wanted one unit. It has a total of 14 drawer two of them inside another drawer. You can barely see it in the picture with...
  20. Realizing a Dream Slab Natural Live Edge Table Top Desk Coffee Huge Wide Thick Oak Custom Kansas

    Project Story: A Treatise on Trees, Faith, Miracles, and a Fork In the Road Back a few years ago I had a dream….."Hmmm…wouldn't it be cool to reclaim and salvage some big natural edge table-top sized slabs out of these trees around here that have blown down, or which just grew in the wrong...
