  2. Curly Cherry Lowboy

    This is a work still in progress. The top has to be flattened and edge detailed and some minor shaping on knee blocks left. It is made from cherry with curly cherry top and curly cherry drawer faces. The shell on center drawer was all hand carved. I have genuine antique hardware that will be...
  3. Connecticut Lowboy

    I started building this maybe 3 years ago (time flies) and finally finished it early this summer. Made from plans found in popular woodworking magazine, article by Glen D. Huey. As per the article I think this project was a great intro into building period furniture. Not too complicated as long...

    This Peterbilt 389 tractor and Rogers 60 ton trailer is built against a real unit driven by my best friend who is the fleet manager for Sanitary Construction in Rockaway, NJ. It is made from Cherry and Walnut has over 300 pieces and took a hundred and twenty two hours to build it has been a...
  5. Queen Anne table

    I made this scalloped top lowboy in the mid 90's and was never happy with the finish. I posted several times on here about a crack in the top and issues I had with the refinishing results I was getting. Well after several months I'm finally happy with the results. I still have to wait for the...

  7. Queen Anne Lowboy

    I just finished this QUEEN ANNE LOWBOY. It's made from air dried walnut and poplar. The fan drawers are a little off the top and don't really belong on this project. I have never seen a period lowyboy with two fans. They usually have a single central fan or no fan at all. But, I wanted to...
  8. Christmas Lowboy

    Here is a lowboy I made for my wife for Christmas but have been unable to post as the hardware was backordered several weeks. It is a modified version of the one featured in the June 2010 issue of Popular Woodworking (by Glen Huey) I used pad foot instead of the drake foot in the article and...
  9. Walnut Lowboy

    Lowboy Here's the matching lowboy to go with the highboy. This was not part of my original plans but a result of a design change. I made these legs for the highboy but decided I didn't like the thickness of the ankles, (they needed to be beefier for a highboy). Since these were already made...
  10. Lowboy in figured cherry

    This time last year, this was my pride and joy! I ordered the Lowboy plan from New Yankee, and a set of legs! I spent over a month building this piece. I took my time, and made sure all my joinery was tight. I think I used every tool in the shop on this project. The sides are one piece, 13"...
  11. Matching mahogany highboy and lowboy Dresser

    This solid mahogany pair was made about 5 years apart. The highboy was made first. It was my first try at carving. It is also the first piece of furniture I made. The design came from a Fine Woodworking magazine. All drawers are dovetailed with solid oak sides and backs. The finish is water...
  12. Chippendale Lowboy

    I enjoyed making this piece. Show material is cherry. Interior spices is poplar. Drawers are hand cut dovetails. My first attempt at ball and claw legs. Had a lot of fun. Took my time and I learned how to work the wood as the grain changed. Keep those chisels sharp! I have done a fair amount of...
  13. Kenworth and 48 Wheel Lowboy Trailer

    Well, It's been a long time since I posted a project on this site - but I'm still alive and still woodworking! I have made many small projects and gifts over the past two years, but never got around to posting them. This is my latest large project: A tri-axel Kenworth T800 pulling a 48 wheel...

  15. Philadelphia Dressing table

    The chairs were well received so I figured I would post another: This is a Philadelphia Dressing table, modeled after an existing high chest in the Chipstone collection. I took some other lowboys and scaled my dimensions proportionally from there. I built this one in 2006, with the goal of...
  16. Pennsylvania Dressing Table

    This is a reproduction of a 17th century Pennsylvania Dressing Table that I began at the Lonnie Bird School of Fine Woodworking last April. I finally got around to finishing the project a couple of weeks ago. Although I tested it on some left over scrap from the drawer fronts, the stain is...

    Hand Tool Driven Lowboy Build The following is intended to document my process for building a lowboy. The build is primarily done with hand tools but I did end up using power tools as the project got going. This build was for a independent study so I had access to the university lab's machines...
  18. Finishing
    Working on a project for my brother. Some of the wood has some pretty big knots. Can epoxy be primed and painted?
  19. Joinery
    I always called a notch cut in the edge of wood a Rabbit. But, I remember reading somewhere that there is a different name for a Rabbit that goes cross the grain. I think it started with an F. What is its correct name?
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    My next project is a cherry side table/hutch. I have clinging to an Oldham 40T that I think I bought 6 years ago for $18. It has run a few thousand feet of mostly pine and poplar and never complained but that 8/4 cherry told me it was time to give it a proper burial (it ceased owing me...
