  1. Reclaimed Cutting Board #4 (January 2013)

    What started out as a box mattress is now a cutting board. If you have nothing better to do for the next 25 minutes you can watch the entire build here on my LumberJocks blog.
  2. Long Twin Bamboo Bed Frame

    I was walking around the Big Orange Box and had an idea. Why couldn't I use flooring like home siding to give a simple project a very high end look. I needed a new bed frame so here is what I built. I chose solid bamboo flooring for the project. It was already mortise and tenoned so I didn't...
  3. Crib for Deacon w/ built in night light

    This crib is for my son, Deacon. It was finished 2 days before his birth. I told my wife I wouldn't be late, but I never promised I would be early, either. Anyway, the crib design is a mash up of 2 different designs we both liked at Babies R Us. It was made to compliment the dresser for the...
  4. Bunk beds for crib/toddler size mattresses

    We don't have the space or the need (yet!) for a set of full-size bunk beds that accommodate twin-sized mattresses. I wanted a smaller set of bunk beds that fit crib-size or toddler-size mattresses. You can't hardly find any to buy online, and even if you could, I wouldn't buy them when I...
  5. Doll beds for my girls

    For Christmas this year, I have made 4 doll beds. First I made one walnut and one maple for my daughter and step-daughter that live with me, and then continued to make two more from walnut for my two oldest girls that live in Utah, these are those two beds. They are about 22 by 9 inches and...
  6. Cabinet for shoes

    Haven't posted a project for a long time because I haven't done a project for a long time. Been busy promoting my fiction. If you have a kindle or your significant other or friend has a Kindle. Do go to and look up Randy Attwood and check out my fiction. Highest price is $4.99...
  7. Natural Sculpture

    I cannot take all the credit for this one, nature did a lot of the work on this. This came from a root ball next to a frozen creek that is only accessible during the winter months. A lot of what I do in woodworking is just to try and bring out the woods natural beauty and bring it inside and...
  8. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I need to turn some 2" dowle, I want to use my router and guide to cut the stock as the lathe turns. Anyone ever do this before. I was thinking of building something to hold my router, a box for lack of a better word and mounting my router to this box. then slide it along the bed of lathe while...
  9. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Making a bigdog bed. Plan is to use a baby crib mattress - 28" x 52". If it were 24" x 48" I could get four out of a 4' x 8' sheet of ply, but at that size I can only get one. 4" oversize reduces the yield 4x. Anyone see a way to get two? M

    Introduction to where I am & what I'm doing Just got engaged a few months ago and promised my bride-to-be a hand-made captain's bed (you know, drawers underneath the mattress platform) with corner posts and a canopy with a mirror. Found out they don't use glass, but it's still reflective - so...
  11. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Has anyone made one these themselves? The ones you would typically buy are metal and have hangers you hook in to a metal strip you attach to the crib. But I was thinking why not just make a wood platform for the mattress and attach it with a bolt or screw of some type in to the crib? When...
  12. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I haven't been able to find a place to buy a crib mattress spring for a new crib that I am building. Does anyone know where I can buy springs for the crib mattress?
