  1. Abomination Dresser

    UGLY! unfortunately made of second hand particle board for the sides (explaining the paint/paper mache); made of oak and whitewood board for the drawers. everything was pretty much second hand now that i think about it. if you appreciate woodworking you may find this quite distasteful.. ABOMINABLE!
  2. Hans Wegner Danish Modern Elbow Chair

    The is a play on the design of the Danish modern chair designer, Hans Wegner. The original includes a padded leather seat but this one I altered the design to include a handwoven rush pattern seat made of danish cord. The back is 1-1/4" thick solid white oak steam bent to a 11-1/8" radius and...
  3. Toilet paper holder

    oak 'n walnut, poplar dowels that were torched and buffed. Spinner crank spins, but is not attatched to the plastic tube holder inside. Brass rod "line guide" held in place by drilling a 3/16" hole in the opposite side walnut disc and held there with a set screw. Good way to use up some scraps.
  4. My Guitar Stand

    This my guitar stand I made from walnut. I start my design in the computer. I use AutoCad and I draw it in solid modeling mode. Once I have the design, I print it in 2D image at full scale. Then I spray the back of the print with an tempory adhesive and lay it on wood. I use the print to cut it...
  5. Paper Light Box - Horse

    This is a paper light box that I made. The frame is made of air dried cherry. The joinery is a box joint with oversize fingers. This is my first box joint and I think it went pretty well, but the glue cleanup was a pain. I finished it with 4 coats of gloss spray lacquer but used 0000 steel wool...
  6. Basic Paper Towel Holder

    This is just a basic paper towel rack I mad for the kitchen. I forget what the joint I used is called, but it is quite sturdy, which is why I chose it. Just two boards, a poplar dowel, some stain, and a polyurethane topcoat. Simple, the way I prefer most things in life. Thanks for taking a...
  7. Cutter push block

    I'm a printer and designer by trade and I had the need for a paper cutter push block. I thought it silly to buy one and to be honest I'm not even sure they make them this small! I just pulled a few poplar cutoffs and made sure to have everything as square as possible. Brass screws help ensure...
  8. Matching Picture Frames

    My wife had some pictures of the kids taken in our back yard, so I volunteered to make some frames that matched our dinning room table. The frames are simple, but it was the first time I used water soluble dye so I decided to post it. The outer trim is walnut with black dye and the matting is...
  9. Coptic bound handmade paper book

    Part of my 2021 Wood Challenge project submission (we're each given a piece of 8" x 2.5" x 1m timber to "do something with" and this is what I did!) I had made some bookends for the wood challenge but decided to make some books to go between them. I made a mould and deckle for paper making (I...
  10. Mantle clock

    Made this beautiful mantle clock at wahoo public school took my 5 months to complete, used hard maple and finished it with tung oil. It is 16 inches tall !
  11. Scandinavian Doll Cradle

    This is one of my older projects. Made from red oak. The rockers are dovetailed into the bottom and secured with a screw in the middle for expansion and contraction as all of this is solid wood.
  12. "Offering" Chair with woven paper seat

    This is the 2nd of two chairs I've made with a seat that is made of folded paper strips that are woven together. There's also a smaller woven paper shelf underneath, with a paper box that includes a special message inside for the person who bought it, which is part of why it's called "Offering"...
  13. Banksy Scrollwork x 27

    My "regular" job has about the best group of co-workers I care to imagine. The vast majority of them have been like an extended family to me - some of them for over 10 years now. They have also ordered and/or purchased many, many woodworking items from me over the years. Tomorrow will be my...
  14. Scroll Stand

    The idea for this came to me while my then fiance and I were discussing guestbook ideas for our wedding. Once it was in my head, it wouldn't let go till I had worked out how to make it work. I quickly realized this piece would go beyond merely something to hold paper for people to sign at our...
  15. tick

    This clock out of bookmatched rosewood was made for a colleague who has just retired. It therefore has NO numbers on it. After all ,as a retiree, he doesnt have to be or go anywhere at a set time (LOL.) (now you understand) the wood was bookmatched, glued, and hot ironed onto particleboard when...
  16. The Sandbox

    This is one of those projects that seems to linger and stay on the "to do list". Been wanting to make something like this ever since I started sanding as far as I can remember, but somehow always didn't have the time when I had the materials, or didn't have the materials when I did have the...
  17. Paper Towel Dispenser

    My wife had asked for one of those paper towel dispensers that one attaches underneath a kitchen cabinet, but I wanted to do something that said woodworker rather than handyman. So I gave it a lot of thought and came up with this. I put it together in 30 minutes from odd pieces I had around...
  18. Butterfly Paper Towel Holder

    Well, I really got into woodworking this year after finishing all of the house projects. This was a request from my Mother for her birthday present. I used a Dremel with a router base attachment to freehand the purple heart inlays.
  19. Art Room Projects: Paper Shelf, Wire Rack, Easel, Display Case

    I made several projects for the School District of Auburndale, Wisconsin. The budget was non existent so we used as much scrap wood as we could. First picture is a large paper storage shelf, second is artist easels, third is smaller paper storage, fourth is wire drying racks, fifth is a small...
  20. Asian lamp

    I made it of scrap wood, some recycled hardware and Japanese rice paper "kinwashi". Inspired after visiting some Japanese museum/garden. My family loves it. Washi is amazing! It gives really nice touch to this kind of projects.
