  1. shaker inspired cupboard

    My wife needed a small cupboard for storing overflow kitchen items. She had something in this spot allready, but it was pretty much useless when it came to storage (attached as picture 3 - as you can see it was all leg). By using the same footprint I greatly increased the storage capacity and...
  2. Two Stepper

    Based on a project in an issue of Woodwork Magazine. The magazine version had half-blind dovetails, but I went with pinned box joints (that's what I call 'em anyway). That joint fits my skill level better. The stretcher is m&t into the sides. I made it out of Ash. It came out pretty well...

  6. Staked Chairs

    I completed these pair of staked chairs (from Chris Schwarz - Design Anarchist Book) in April of 2017. The chairs were build to be used at the cherry library desk I built last year. The chairs are built out different wood species (basically what I had laying around). The seats are poplar, the...
  7. Made a bookcase for my wife for Mothers Day. First one ever. Poplar.

    This was the first bookcase I have ever made, no plans just winged it. I used poplar due to budget constrictions. We ended up painting it with General Finishes "Driftwood" milk paint. I distressed the edges to give a contrast to the gray paint. I think it turned out ok, definitely some mistakes...
  8. Tool Cabinet

    This tool cabinet is made of poplar with maple staves. The case and doors are both joined with finger/box joints. The middle shelves on both doors and the main case have through tenons for strength and all others can be customized or removed. The maple staves were cut out of 12/4 and only the...
  9. Hanging Wall Cabinet with some Blues

    My first hanging wall cabinet - that isn't shop furniture. I emulated a couple different plans I found from FWW. Here's some specs: 23.5"h, 11"w, 7"d - knotty cherry, walnut pulls, beetle kill pine for back and drawer bottoms - federal blue milk paint with dewaxed shellac on top - Watco Danish...
  10. Counter height kitchen table

    I made this table for a friend (my father's coworker) who had replaced his kitchen and was looking for a table that he could sit at as well as move around the kitchen. This was the first piece of woodworking of mine that I have directly built for someone, and it was fun and interesting to have...
  11. Milk Paint Box

    My first try at milk paint. I made a dovetailed box out of recycled pine shelves. Finished with two coats of slate milk paint, two coats of BLO, and one coat of paste wax. I'm interested to see how it ages, but I'm happy with the result so far. All done with hand tools. Handles are clinched...
  12. Tool Tray

    I made this from poplar. I finished it by painting it Marigold Yellow, adding a coat of Tung Oil, and rubbing on some furniture wax. I used 3/4 inch material that I scrubbed to 5/8, but it's still a bit thick. I'll have to try resawing next time. My first try at dovetails… Some worked out...
  13. Walnut Letter Box

    This is a letter box I did in walnut for my sister-in-law as a Christmas present. She was at our house and flipped through my copy of Fine Woodworking and saw Christian Becksvoort's article that feaured this design. She made a comment that she really liked it. I make enough stuff out of pine...
  14. Entry Organizer for my Sister

    My sister, Georgiana, asked me to build her an entry organizer for her mud room. All she said was it had to be 60 " high by 36 " wide. This is what I came up with! It is made of poplar with a milk paint finish. I added some wear marks then put 5 coats of satin finish poly.
  15. Painted Bookcase

    I built this bookcase for me pre-teen daughter, who is an avid reader and book collector. We spent time together looking at various images and articles on bookcases, finally deciding on a design by Martin J. Milkovits, Quick, Sturdy Bookcase published in Fine Woodworking #194-Nov/Dec 2007. I...

    So anyone who has poked around LJ will know immediately the inspiration of my top. Ohad does some amazing things and I just couldn't help myself and try creating a curved top. I use all reclaimed lumber. This is Pine and Oak flooring. I used Old Fashioned Milk Paint for color and Tried and True...

    Two desks that I just completed for my kids. They are made of cherry, maple, poplar and pine. The desks are finished in milk-paint with an oil finish.
  18. Whimsical Bear Table

    The Mason Dixon Woodworker's held another of it's fun weekend workshops. We got together and made this whimsical bear table. I cannot recall where the original plans came from. One of our members headed the workshop and he has made several… and he supplied the plastic eyes. Made from...
  19. Bandsaw box

    In researching bandsaw boxes I came across Michael Cullen's work. His designs and carving skills are really amazing….here's my first attempt at one of his boxes. The blank I started with has birdseye maple on the faces so I kept this box free of carving and painting…other than the top and...

    Hi everyone, This is the carved chest I made to hold my chair making tools. My classmates at the Windsor Institute have seen this several times, but I especially enjoyed doing the chip carving on the top. Here is some information about the chest. The case and the three trays are made of pine...
