  1. Mahogany Carved Twin Bed

    Ladies and gentlemen, This project was born somewhere at the local IKEA. I realized there that I wanted a simple and practical bed with the feel of beautiful real wood, chopped, carved, and finished myself. Here it is: Honduras mahogany - I didn't want to spend time working on a cheap...
  2. Cherry, Maple and Alder serving Box

    I made this box for my Father for fathers day, he is always having barbecue's for my family, and his table outside was always full, so i thought i could house the paper plates inside a box so they would not blow away and make more storage above them. Then I had the idea to add the steak knives...
  3. Maple Sink Base

    Here's a maple sink base I made based on homeowner sketches (yikes!). All material was rough cut to begin so all the milling too me quite a while. He wanted 4 inch thick legs so i ended up using 10/4 and gluiong up two pieces after carefully jointing them. My years in a handmade furinture...
  4. 1945 Dunlop Bench Saw With Mahogony/Cherry Base

    My grandfathers old saw i dug out of the basement and reconditioned. Its origional base was a few old stair spindles for legs and a thin piece of ply, not much to it. I made a mortise and tenon cherry base with a mahogany top. Finished with boiled linseed oil. Also made a shroud for the belt...
  5. Indestructible Dovetailed Shop Trays

    Instead of using plastic containers to gather small stuff around the shop and to free the countertops, I gathered few scraps and made those indestructible trays. Sliding dovetails secure the corners and the bottoms are glued and nailed 1/4" plywood and MDF (no grooves for shop trays). My...
  6. Cedar Goblet

    Last summer a windstorm came by and uprooted this gorgeous red cedar. I decided to try my luck with a live-edge turning. The wood was so wet my fingers were dripping water while I was turning. But after giving it a couple nights to dry out, it was ready to be turned to the finished dimensions...
  7. spalted maple bowl

    was very careful with the spalting, spent as little time as possible around the spalting and sanding. Had all my air cleaning devices going full blast. I think it was worth it, and so far no ill affects. mike
  8. Last one I swear!!!... probably.

    Some more crud wood from Lowe's. Based on the other's comments it may be some kind of pine??? This is the first piece I used my drill bit tailstock with. That thing is so cool… I used an oil finish to see what it would look like. Oh, and that is probably the only time I'll light a candle in...
  9. Arts & Crafts Poster Frame

    We went to the Port Townsend, WA Wooden Boat Festival last year for my birthday. My girlfriend bought this poster with the understanding that I'd make a frame for it. I finally got around to it. Here's what I came up with, thanks to Dan's inspiration. I chickened out on the fancy scrollwork...
  10. Arts & Crafts Framing Samples

    My girlfriend went to Framer's Workshop in Berkeley to get some glass for the poster frame I recently made her, and she came back with the glass and a job offer. Kirstie, the owner, needs a local woodworker to make customer frames. She asked me to make up some samples, so I ran home and...
  11. Cherry cigar humidor

    Cherry humidor with maple splines and butcher block finish.I figured the butcher block finish would be acceptable, because it is foodsafe and if the cigars absrobed them there would be no toxicity.Only after making it and giving it as a gift was I informed that a humidor should be preferably...
  12. Tapered Leg Hall Table

    Here is a Hall Table I recently made out of Pennsylvania Cherry. Tapered legs, floating drawer, half-blind dovetails, continuous grain and beveled top. Finished with 3coates of Tried and True Danish oil and light brown wax.
  13. First Bowls

    Bowls are purple heart, butternut, burl maple (with some really light spalting on the oppostie side but only showed the burl in the pics since I like it more), Box elder, and maple, from left to right. They are the first bowls I've ever produced. Though now that I think about it there not in...
  14. Simple Tablet Stand from a 2x4

    I built a new desk! ( . . . which I'll post later) I needed something to hold my tablet while I enjoy some multi-screen goodness. This is a really simple solution I came up with: A really clean chunk of quarter-sawn douglas from a 2×4, a small hole, a dado on one side the width of a USB cable...
  15. no finish vs mineral oil

    Getting comfortable turning bigger things and using my jaw chucks. The candle holder on left is completely unfinished, just well sanded (which is why my hand print showed up… sigh...). But hey, that's what Momma wanted! On the right I used mineral oil and I really like how it turned out. The...
  16. Koa wood Wave

    Video here: I got a piece of koa wood as a present and it was pretty enough to frame- but far to thick. I ripped this piece off with a combination of hand and power tools, then make a sunset from paduk and a frame out of curly maple. The blue areas are a mix of epoxy and pearl pigment
  17. Aromatic Cedar Essential Oil Box

    Here is an aromatic cedar essential oil box that I made. It is in the green and green style. I used walnut for the pluges and the drawer pull. It also has a raised panel top and removable tray and drawer. The drawer sides are made of cypress. It was made entirely with hand tools, and holds about...
  18. Cherry Nightstands

    Built 2002 - 2006 This pair of nightstands was taken from Woodsmith Magazine #76, however I modified it for hight since the original was only 22" tall! I started the project while living at a house that had a double-car garage for my workshop (ah, nice to be spread out), but then I moved...
  19. Walnut Horse Boot Jack

    This is a boot jack inspired by skone. It helps you removed your boots without mucking up your hands. It was a last minute Christmas present for my in-laws made from walnut which came from a tree they had milled years ago. The wood has been sitting in their barn ever since. My wife's papa...
