  1. Pine Corner Shelf for Greg

    This was the third thing I ever built. My brother couldn't find a shelf to fit this corner in his apartment so he came to me to build it. I bought the pine and crown molding at HD and the inside back is oak for durability. I used a keyhole bit in my router for mounting. The finish is Minwax...
  2. Making 135 Degree molding for Wainscoting project

    My son requested that I dress up the future grand-daughter's bedroom with crown molding and Wainscoting. The closet wall is two 45 degree angles. I needed two pieces of 135 degree molding, to cover the two edges butted together at 45 degrees. I went to Lowes and confirmed they don't stock 135...

  4. Oak Half Door with Top Ledge

    This is a door I made for another of my neighbors. They said they had an idea about having a half door made to separate their laundry room and kitchen. They also have dogs and needed to keep them out so they didn't have to use their chairs to block the doorway. A top ledge was also needed to...
  5. Framed Flag

    I was asked to frame this guidon (flag) as a going away gift for my departing commander at a squadron I belonged to some years ago. While she was commander, we stood down one group and stood up another in its place, so the flag was hers for the taking. She was probably the most even-keeled and...
  6. Bar Reclaimed Pine

    This is not as exiting as the bookcase but I really love the look of the reclaimed old Pine and hemlock. Bar rail was made in shop out of oak. All solid beams on corners and ends of the bar and back upper section also, they have so much character on their own. Had to come up with a concealed...

  11. Swing and Playground

    This past Spring I took a WW course at the local public schools and the first large project I tackled was to build a bench swing to add onto the playground I built the year before. I used the plans from The Complete Book of Woodworking (which has several great plans to help you dabble in...
  12. Resume for Santa... Built-In Corner Media Cabinet

    Dear Santa, I know I haven't written in a while, been super busy being a grown-up and all, you know how it goes… but now I have two little guys that are completely enamored with you. You bring joy into our home two months out of the year and I thought it would be awesome if I worked for you the...
  13. Ebony Hudson Bay Murphy bed | Custom

    This is the first time I've used the Minwax Ebony stain by itself. I've used it in combination with a dye to achieve my cappuccino finish, but never alone and on oak. This bed was built in February 2011. It is a version called the Hudson Bay Murphy bed. It is the standard Alpine version with...
  14. Picture frame for Mom

    This is a Christmas present I whipped together quickly for my mother and step father. I had a great deal of trouble gluing the crown molding together because of the angles. I ended up making an odd jig with some scrap and clamps. In the end it worked out pretty well. There are a number of...

  16. Custom Picture Frame

    Here is a frame that I made for an ex-girlfriend. Which she still has… I had made it because of the pictures that we have taken together. Like many of my projects I like to use many different species of wood. This is made from walnut, cherry, mahogany, red oak, and maple. If noticed the...

  18. Celtic Deverelle Candle Tray and Charms Set

    This is the second Celtic style candle tray and charm set that I have designed. I have been busy making Christmas gifts over the past couple of weeks and haven't really been doing much designing or at the saw, so I thought that I would do something that isn't too difficult and has a strong...
  19. Corner Mantle Over Tile

    This is a mantle I made for my parents' corner gas fireplace. The builder left it with ALOT of tile around (and a horrible window overhead). Before and after pictures above! I built it in place as opposed to in the shop and carrying it in. I built the surface out about 2.75" from the inside...
  20. Picture frame for a painting that deserved one

    Nearly 5 years ago I walked out of a custom framing shop with my brand new original Afremov painting and told my wife there was no way I was going to pay nearly $600 for a custom framing job. "I can do that myself," I said. I am a little ashamed it took me so long to get it done, but there was a...
