  1. Window Seat and Bookcases

    This Window Seat and Bookcases was constructed in 2007 for my daughter's room. The material is solid oak and oak plywood. The finish was 2 coats of shellac and 2 coats of polyurethane varnish after a light oak wood stain. You never have too many shelves.
  2. Bookshelf/Nightstand

    This project started with my wife wanting something to replace the cheap plastic shelving she was using as a nightstand and the need to use the space behind the door for more than a place to pile things. This shelf was the result. It is made from a single sheet of oak plywood with shoe molding...

    A wine rack and bookshelf, custom made to fit under a desk in a kitchen.
  4. Pochade box

    Built this "pochade box" (fancy name for an artist's painting box) for my daughter for Christmas. The table top tripod is just to show the functionality. She'll use a more robust tripod in actual use. Oak plywood, and assorted wood from the "shorts" pile for the build. Side tables mount using...

    First bar that I've made. Top is oak plywood, and the trim is poplar. The shelf is made out of 2×4s with poplar used for the lettering. Stained with minwax gunstock and dark walnut. Finished with General Finish 450 Satin. Thanks for viewing!

    Hello All, Here's a couple of pic's of a base cabinet that I've started for our kitchen remodel. The base is seven (7)foot long. I'm making it out of Oak Plywood 3/4 inch, height is thirty-two (32), and the depth is seventeen and three quarters (17 3/4) inches. I'll post more as I progress...
  7. floor dolly with 4 locking wheels

    I needed a heavy duty floor dolly to move my hard wood boards round in the shop and other heavy items. When I am not using it, I will have it under my band saw so I can move it at ease and lock the wheels to keep it in place. This floor dolly is made of 4 caster heavy duty locking wheels for...
  8. Fire place air bellow 1st one

    There was a person at my garage sale and was looking for a air bellow for his fire place. I told him it sold already but it can't be that hard to make one so this is my first one I made. Got my hardware at ace hardware, the leather at Jo-Ann's and the wood from a Cabernet shop. I drew up my...
  9. TV Stand for Entertainment Center

    My latest project was to build a TV stand to match a customer's existing entertainment center (the two vertical cabinets in the first picture are the originals, mine is the middle section under the TV). The basic structure was simple, a cabinet that had 2 drawers in the middle, raised panel...

    First picture, the desk is closed. The feet can be moved to an upright position and with the desk closed the desk can be stored in a closet. Between the top and bottom of the shelf is an egg crate for strength. Desk is for autistic granddaughter to have her own crafts desk that can be stowed...
  11. A Trim Carpenter's Tool Box

    I built this tool box way back in 1986 out of Oak plywood and solid oak 3/4×1" edge banding and brass screws. It has two large dovetailed oak drawers, 3 ft. deep that go under two 2'x4' boxes that are screwed together. There is a tool organizer made of solid oak inside that holds saw blades...
  12. TV cabinet

    I've had the desire, for a while, to centralize the electronics under the TV. My wife green-lighted the project, and off we go. Used sketchup to plan the cuts and the build. Almost everything went exactly as planned; I shortened the inside shelves in the back to allow for wire storage. While...
  13. Bookcases for a Church Office

    I made a series of six of these bookcases for a colleague of mine that is a Presbyterian minister. They were made from oak plywood and fluted molding and crown molding from Lowe's. The finish was 6 coats of water-based Cabot stain/poly mix. I will not use the water-based stuff again…it took...
  14. Japanese Hina Doll Display

    The Japanese have a celebration every year on March 3rd called Girl's Day or Doll's Day or "Hinamatsuri". I won't go into all the details but a doll display is made with the Emperor and his wife on top and with each step down there is a level for very specific dolls and objects. I made this...
  15. My 4 year old daughters bed. This was my second large woodworking project ever.

    I had some help from my Dad on this one. It was nice to have some father/son time. Before we started he asked me if I had any plans or directions, I told him they were all in my head. But when it was done the picture in my head didn't look like a barn. LOL. I saw a picture of a $1500 bed...
  16. Circular saw blade sharpening jig

    So I built this contraption a couple of weeks ago. It was dreamed up out of pure necessity. My blades, all of them, were pathetically dull and I kept putting it off and putting it off, because it's darn expensive to have blades sharpened. Retired and all I had to think of something. I'm not...
  17. Out Of The Way Screw Bin

    This is just what I needed in my small shop. As you can see it's getting pretty crowded in here.
  18. Contemporary Dining Table

    These two lift lid boxes are made from walnut and cherry (left &right) with a blistered maple lid on one and a basswood lid on the other. Both feature curved lids and splined mitter joints. The finish on both is three coats of hand rubbed shellac and wax.
  20. Planes

    I recently picked up this old Bailey #5 (first photo) at a thrift shop for $2.00. A great rainy day project! This past weekend was the time. Five hours and about $3.00 worth of sandpaper, WD-40 and some elbow grease, which I am finding in lesser amounts lately, brought it to the second photo. It...
