  1. Hope Chest - My first 'real' woodworking project

    Here's the Hope Chest that I've been working on for the last several weeks for my girlfriend. Like the title says, this is the first real woodworking project that I've made. I've tinkered around a little in the past, but never made anything of substance. I never made any raised panels before...
  2. oak blanket chest

    This blanket chest was a wedding gift for a dear friend of my wife's. It is not made out of oak and stained golden oak by minwax. The panels are plywood to save time and money. This project was done by a plan from the New Yankee Workshop.
  3. Lego box

    My stepson wanted a lego box to keep some of his things in. We discussed it and decided to make it with a drawer. Everything turned out great until I made the rookie mistake of painting the drawer and inside the box where the drawer goes. Since that didn't work we decide to make it a shelf. Both...
  4. New Mission Style Murphy Bed | Custom

    This is a new design for my murphy bed. I started with my Templeton and changed it to more of a mission style. I took the arch off the front and made them straight across. I then added mission style crown and base molding. The stain finish gave me a little problems. I usually send out a...
  5. Industrial Hardware Shelves "Stop Motion" Build

    Hi Lumberjocks! The first woodworking project I ever took on was building a set of my own industrial hardware shelves for my apartment.

  7. Euro Murphy Bed Moved Leg | Custom

    This murphy wall bed is my common Euro design. On this one, I moved the leg up a little. This freed up a little space on the face of the bed. I think it is a good look to it. Don't know if I want to change it as the "official" euro design yet (lots of internet pictures would have to be...

  10. A Man's Man's Box

    I have a lot to learn about making boxes. I learned quite a bit making this one. I wanted to make a box with a different kind of top. I have been making solid tops mostly, with an occasional inset panel, usually nice plywood with veneer. For this one I decided to rout the sides and top panel...
  11. Sign for Christmas...

    Here's a fun little sign I did for my in-laws. They just did a huge rebuild/remodel after being flooded. They were part of the big floods in Cedar Rapids, IA. I wanted to give them something that they could put on their new and improved home that should be finished sometime early this next year...

  15. Floating media cabinet and shelf

The basic goal was to create some sort of storage solution for the media components and dvds that did not sit on the floor and a clean design. It is constructed of oak ply and solid oak edging and drawer fronts. The cabinet is...

    This is a corner shelf I made for my two older boys who share a room. They currently have a Wal-Mart shelf in there and it is leaning severely, shelves are bending, and the back is falling off. I made this one from scraps and mess-ups from another corner shelf project for my parents. I...

    On July 6, 2013 the Chariot Fire raged in the Laguna Mountains nearby. I was camping up there that weekend and had to evacuate. The fire burned over 7,000 acres of forest and destroyed 149 structures. After the fire I was hired to assist in evaluating the cost of some of the lost structures. One...
  19. Refurbished Desk

    July, 2018 - This project was more involved than I thought it would be when a friend dropped it off for a little restoration work. This started in May and finished in July. Glad it's done! LOL 1) First challenge was the discovery of two missing toes on the feet (photo 2). So I carved two...
