  1. Chair for grand daughter #1

    I built this chair and several others in 1999 and had them on hand in hopes that grandchildren would come along to use them. Grandaughter #1 arrived in 2007, and this chair was decorated for her for Christmas that year. It was there when she learned to walk, and has been part of her life ever...
  2. LARGE Entertainment Center

    Here is something I just completed, colors are something that I'm new to but I think It came out alright. I used ebony dye and polyurithane, in the future I think I'll try and find a different option though.
  3. and another one...

    So, it appears I am a sign maker (at least for the moment) After posting my other sign, I got a few requests to do similar work. For project #2 I have made a sign for my Mom's pizza place (if you are near St. Mary's Ohio, you should stop in, they make an excellent pizza among other things!)...
  4. "A Tudor for Tweeters"

    Heres a little birdhouse I made for my grandmother. She actually helped me make some of it!! It consists of a Cedar everything. Most of the wider pieces were edge joined. I used Tight bond III to make this birdhouse indestructible to the weather, we painted it with I believe hunter green. Most...
  5. "Give Me a Sign"

    This sign was something I have been needing for a long time and it is really just great. I was going to get one of those sign making kits and still probably eventually will but I decided that I would fist give freehand a shot. I used Cherry I think, some wood that my grandma found at her local...
  6. recycled dresser

    I couldn't find a home for this old dresser so I decided convert it into a kitchen hutch. the dresser was all ready white so I gave it a good sanding, and the plywood for the upper section was from my saw table that I just rebuild. I started by priming both pieces orange, then mixing a glaze...
  7. Nakashima Inspired Coffee Table

    Please don't crucify me for painting it. I have been really inspired by a lot of George Nakashima's work, but I didn't want to just do the same old thing that everyone else has done. I have a craft show coming up June 10th so I thought the added color would be a great attention grabbing piece...
  8. Christmas Rose's birthday chair

    On Christmas Day 2010, my daughter's first baby was born. They named her Noelle Rose. I was immediately obliged to make her a chair, to uphold a tradition that started with my first grand daughter in 2007. This ladderback chair was Rose's gift on her first birthday, and second Christmas, in...

  11. Carved painted bench

    Here is an old project of mine. It has a bit of history. I was just starting this furniture building thing and brought this to a interior designers shop. I was informed color would never sell and people don't like carving. It was one of those things that changed my style of furniture. I've...
  12. TV Shelf

    This is a wall mounted shelf for a cable modem and DVD player requested by the girlie. Time spent in workshop > time spent driving to ikea. This isn't really my style at all, but as far as she's concerned it could have been made of plastic. I used MDF because I had it, as well as some pine...
  13. Contemporary Reclaimed Barn Wood Sliding Door

    Here's a recent build I did using different barn woods from our lot. The customer picked out all of the different pieces at the lot and then I ripped them, jointed the back side, and brad-nailed/adhered them to the birch plywood. when it was fully assembled, our finish guy did a great lacquer...

    Birthday present for my now 5 year old daughter - same one that was in the rocking chair - they grow pretty fast. Bed is a doll house/bookcase headboard with a white picket fence footboard. A few sketches but mostly designed on the fly but based of typical twin bed dimensions for the mattress...

    This is a platform that was completed in February 2010. Actually it was completed in both February and March. I had to rebuild it. It was for a local designer. I overlooked my notes that the drawer needed to hold hanging file folders. Normally I put three drawer across, but since the drawer...

    This is a bookcase I built for my little girl. I had a plan in my head, then the wife gave me a Pottery Barn Kids magazine with a very similar design. It is poplar plywood with a poplar face frame. I routed out some windows and added some window trim. Roof is at a 30 deg angle. Approx...

  19. Daughter's Room Stuff

    These are the projects that have kept me busy lately. Since out daugher is due in October, I am almost done with the wish list from the wife. The first is a bow holder for our soon-to-be daugher's hair bows. Nothing special here, just 1/2" poplar cut to shape, and then a 3/8" round-over along...
  20. Lighthouse Lamp

    These are Lighthouse Lamps that I made for one of my daughters for Christmas a couple of years ago. I had her take a couple of pictures of them for me. I remembered that I had made them when seeing them again on a recent trip to visit them. She and her husband have quite a collection of...
