  1. Curly Maple & Wenge rocking chair

    Built this chair along side my first student of the year, Greg. He built a beautiful Walnut & Quilted Maple rocking chair while taking my build your own 10 day rocking chair course. This chair is built from some beautiful curly maple which I scored in December, I felt it would work very well...
  2. Splined mitered boxes made from oak.

    Got all of this oak flooring out of the trash so it's time to put some to use. Mitered joints with walnut splines, or as I like to call them, "table saw boxes". 2 coats of danish oil to finish it off. Boxguy if you read this, I was able to get continuous grain on 3 sides following your advice...
  3. One Man's Trash.....

    One of my buddies (Kenny) salvaged a bunch of leftover oak flooring and brought me 5 barrels of pieces that were too small or to bad to use (for my wood stove). I have been burning the split, warped, etc but some are too pretty to burn. This is the first burled oak I have seen and I love knots...

  5. Triple bunk beds

    11" x 20" x 25" high, mapel with 1/8" luaun plywood, and Rust-Oleum spray white gloss enamel finish. 20" doll bunk beds, 3 high, I'v never seen a triple bunk before but I guess with dolls you can do anything -lol- I built these for the father of the girls that I built the doll closet / case for...
  6. Bathroom Magazine Rack

    My idea of "exotic wood"... incense cedar fence board from the big-box store! Total cost was less than a buck. Ripped some to half thickness for the struts, and "planed" the second side also with the table-saw. Using some advice from Mathias (at woodgears.ca) my tablesaw is prediminantly loaded...
  7. A custom butcher block that's one of a kind

    I was asked by Canadian Home Workshop Magazine to build "something for the kitchen", but seeing as how I detest plywood, I decided to do a butcher block…..but butcher blocks are kinda boring…...so I "spiced it up" :) The mother of all cutting boards I think! 24X36 X 4.5" thick endgrain...

  9. Jewelry box - curved front

    This is Wood Magazine's Jewlery Box found in the Dec '09 / Jan '10 issue. I found the velvet shaped partitions for the drawers at Bed Bath and Beyond. Once I saw them, I knew my wife would enjoy the built-in organization. So I built the drawers around the partitions and the box around the...
  10. no frills cross cut sled w/ a twist

    I finally had to have a sled to make the final length cuts on the glued up top of a hope chest for my oldest daughter. Nothin' fancy… just a plane Jane utility sled. 38" x 27" between the fences, 1/2" Melamine, 4/4 salvaged Mahogony fences joined and planed dead flat. We have significant...
  11. Magazine Storage Bins

    Just a quick little project that yields a nice way to store those woodworking magazines. I've seen a number of plans for these but this one specifically came from The Family Handyman magazine. I used 1/4" Douglas Fir plywood and 1" x 6" Spruce boards. I made a 3/4" MDF pattern and used my...
  12. Outdoor Project: Cedar Wood Double Settee

    As I was digging through the DeCou Photo Archives for something I could enter in the Summer Garden Project contest, I found this project that I had forgotten about. I built this directly from the plans in WOOD magazine. I gave it to a good friend of ours, and it is sitting on his deck in the...

    The very first magazine table I made, I gave to my wife. She didn't like it so being the nice guy I am , I made her another one out of Oak. You can see more pictures here
  14. Calico Sliding Barn Door

    This door was featured in North Vally Magazine and East Valley Magazine as well as Scottsdale.org. It has reclaimed barn wood material from 3 different states. It's a huge door! Weighs a lot. It has a flat lacquer finish and the steel has a special rusty patina and lacquer on it. Custom...
  15. Pipe Making 101

    This is a first draft of what should become a nice illustrated tutorial on making a pair of one piece pipes. The pipe making process is much more complicated and needs a lot of tools to make. Pipe making requires: Table saw Drill press (several bits) Band saw 4" Stationary Belt sander...
  16. Restored Magazine Rack

    So this is one of my restored furniture pieces. It's a simple magazine rack with heart cutouts and a patterned skirt/apron around the top. It's important to me because it's the first time I've been paid to do any sort of woodworking. The customer, a friend, simply wanted the piece stripped and...
  17. Solid Walnut cabinet

    I made this cabinet for my employer Ornamentum Furniture about a year and half ago. The Gables are 1 1/2 thick and span the cabinets height. Showing the end grain at the top was a bold design choice and i made sure to line up all my laminations from top too gables giving it a very linear look...
  18. Tree Troll

    I copied this carving from the first carving book I bought. "HOW TO CARVE FACES IN DRIFTWOOD" By Harold L. Enlow. I highly recommend this book. It helped me with my early carving. It has quite a few patterns in it. You don't have to use driftwood, use any kind of wood. Carving material: Big...
  19. K-D Mission Desk

    My latest big build is this knock-down Mission style desk. I modified plans I found in a book from 1910. I made it deeper (from 12" to 16") to make it more stable and so it fits a 17" laptop inside. It can be taken apart, shipped flat and re-assembled without tools. Simply pull the back up and...
