  6. Mid Century Modern Desk

    I built this desk from rift sawn white oak. I think my favorite part of the build was making the edge detail. Couldn't find a router bit that I liked so I used my table saw to create the profile. If you are interested in how it was built please check out my blog post or watch the video on...

  13. Retro-Modern Sideboard With Bent Ash

    This is my favorite project thus far and first I'm posting to this forum. A lot of the questions I originally had were answered through reading discussions of others with similar questions. Everything from WHICH GLUE??? (my favorites) to tips on bending wood. Of all of the research I did, I...
  14. Mid-Century Modern Clock

    The mid-century inspired clock is done! I love how this clock, or time machine if you will, was definitely not a time suck. This was a really fun build, and it was pretty quick after figured out the math for all of the angles. Normally I am more of a fan of the straight grain in wood but I...

  19. Electric

    I needed a credenza for my home office, so I made one. This is another one of my design experiments incorporating what I like from Mid century modern, and what appeals to me personally. I came extremely close to chickening out on the paint. I had the glue and clamps all ready to go and skip...
  20. Writing desk

    This is a small, mid century modern inspired writing desk. I wasn't working off a plan for this (big mistake) so it took me forever and evolved a few times over the course of making it. It's designed to be opened from either side so the cabinet can be on the left or right side. I didn't have...
