  1. Wedding Favors Display

    Much like my path lights this stand was built out of wood from old fence panels. The only new(ish) wood was some plywood used for the base of each tray and a small piece of chalk board.
  2. Recycled Pallet Campaign Desk

    This desk was made for a client using a recycled pallet from a local construction site. The pallet was made from Austrailian Pine, some type of cedar as far as I can tell. Very beautifully raggy wood textures. The client wanted something with a "campaign twist" on it, so I added the canvas drop...
  3. J-Bench (Recycling to the next level)

  4. Coffee table from old wood

    A few wooden beams stood in the corner for a long time, until I got a piece of glass 10 millimeters thick, ideal for a coffee table… Since the rectangular shape of the table suits me better, one part of the table top is glass, and the rest is wood.
  5. Piano bench from old wood

    I made this bench from some old wood laying around the farm. The top is oak which was rough cut with knots and sap wood, the rest is pine. I made a compartment for storing music books. The cleats under the top fit tightly within the compartment so the top doesn't move around. I used danish...
  6. Book Shelf

    This was my first try at a book shelf for my sister. It was made with some scrap slabs of maple and cherry that is why it is two different stains.
  7. Hand Fan Stand

    I went to China for Chinese New Year last February and bought a couple of hand fans as gifts (obviously machine made). Got home and realized that to display them, you'd need to hang it somehow or prop it up against something. So I decided to build stands with Asian flavor and this is the...

  17. Wood & Lumber
    So a fellow LJ, Todd Clare and I hauled away some salvaged beams from one of the older buildings in downtown Denver (LoDo, actually) that is being completely renovated right now. We think the wood is Douglas Fir, or something similar, but we're not sure? The Saddlery Building itself used to be a...
  18. Woodturning
    Yesterday I went back to a piece I started about a couple years ago. It is Mesquite root burl that I got near Prescott, Arizona. It has probably been dead over 50 years as there was only the stump was left. I really don't know when or what the heck caused me earlier to turn a 3" tenon as I don't...
