    I made this headboard out of pine and birch ply. I added LED strip lighting to the underside of the top for reading in bed purposes. From start to finish it took me eight weekends. The face-frame is joined together with biscuits, and then glued onto the plywood backing. This is then pocket-hole...
  2. Dovetail joints cut on two different vises

    The quality of the joint, as expected, is no different regardless of the vise used. The top joint shown in the picture was cut about 10 years ago before I even had a dovetail saw, the bottom one, yesterday, using the Veritas dovetail saws (14 tpi rip and cross) . The vises are described here...

  8. The Allium Floor Lamp in Walnut & Zebrawood

    Most of my designs begin as a general shape in my mind and as I develop the concept I start to think about color, texture and materials. My initial concept was the Allium in Green, but as I began working on that piece I considered a variation that used complimentary woods for the two distinct...

  10. Antique bulb accent lamp

  12. Cedar Bandsaw Box

    This is a bandsaw box, in the shape of pacman. This is after you beat the game, where realistically, he would be super fat by all the dots he ate. I took some wood, and cut a pacman looking out. No real measurements, just made it as close as possible. Then after cutting the drawer out I sanded...
