  1. Poplar shoe rack

    Here is a shoe rack I made for our narrow entry-way out of poplar. This project was in large part a practice for half-lap joinery. There are 82 such joints throughout the shelves and uprights. The poplar I got was from a local woodworker who was retiring and selling off his nice hardwoods at...
  2. Refurbished redwood burl coffee table

    It was about this time last year that I finished refurbishing this beautiful redwood burl coffee table. This is a family heirloom piece which my parents bought in 1976. When it seemed the entire country was going to be in the Washington DC region for the bicentennial celebration, my parents...
  3. Live Edge Waterfall Bubinga kitchen table

    After six months with on and off again work on our new kitchen table, I'm finally done! This started with a trip to NC with the folks at West Penn Hardwoods.

  7. Nakashima Style Walnut Dining Table

    Greetings all and Happy New Year. Hard to believe that it has been more than a year since I posted a project. As many of you can relate, life takes time. Work, travel for work, travel for vacation, relocating the kids and on and on. You get the picture. Projects were started and then sat...
  8. Finishing
    I'm loving hard wax oil finishes like Odie's Oil, Rubio Monocoat, etc. But I'm looking for one that doesn't amber wood so much. Below is a picture of Odie's regular formula on hickory. Great, but definitely too yellow for my project. The manufacture of Osmo Polyx Raw claims it will keep the...

    Getting started. I have been thinking for a while that it was time to finally make a real woodworking workbench. I have been using my assembly/outfeed table as a workbench and even added a quick release face vise and some dogs but it just is not great for work holding when using hand planes...
