Constructed over one week at Lonnie Bird's School in Dandridge, TN. Simple, but enjoyable design. I plan to...
  3. Pennsylvania Desk on Frame

    This Desk on Frame was started at Lonnies Bird's School in Dandridge, TN. His plans orriginally called for a frame to have tapered legs and the desk was drawn up based on a period MA desk. I wanted to have cabriole legs so, with Lonnie's help, I redesigned the frame. I used trifed feet so now I...
  4. Carved Spanish Entertaiment Cabinet

    Four years ago my partner and I (Brian Kelly and Ted Williams) produced a guest house casework and mill project for a fellow woodworking firm. His client recently requested that we execute an additional cabinet for the main house as an entertainment center. Crafted by Brian Kelly, the material...
  5. Pencil Post Bed

    This project holds special meaning for me as it is a wedding present for my oldest child; my daughter, Chelsea. I made a cradle for her when she was born and as she transitions into to this new time in her life, I thought a bed was a fitting gift. I built what is commonly referred to as a pencil...
  6. Queen Anne Lowboy

    I just finished this QUEEN ANNE LOWBOY. It's made from air dried walnut and poplar. The fan drawers are a little off the top and don't really belong on this project. I have never seen a period lowyboy with two fans. They usually have a single central fan or no fan at all. But, I wanted to...
  7. Secretary Desk and Bookcase

    I've been working on this project on and off for 2 years. It was the largest project I have ever undertaken. It has been an incredible learning experience for me and I am so happy with the way it turned out. Yesterday, I took it out for a photoshoot. I brought it back to the spot in the...
  8. William & Mary desk

    The original of this desk was in the collection of an extremely good friend. It was made in Philadelphia around 1690 - 1710. I saw the original piece when I was in my teens and knew I had to copy it one day. After nearly two decades of seeing this piece with some regularity, I finally worked up...
  9. Massachusetts Tall Chest

    I built the case last Sept. at Lonnie Bird's School in Dandridge TN. Then, spent almost 6 months building the drawers and applying the finish. Taking classes from a master craftsman is undoubtly the fastest way to improve your skills. Starting a new project there in 3 weeks.

Medium figure curly maple secretary stained with brown Honduras mahogany aniline dye, glazed with Van ******************** walnut crystals and finished with two coats shellac.

  11. Pennsylvania Dressing Table

    This is a reproduction of a 17th century Pennsylvania Dressing Table that I began at the Lonnie Bird School of Fine Woodworking last April. I finally got around to finishing the project a couple of weeks ago. Although I tested it on some left over scrap from the drawer fronts, the stain is...
  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm building a Massachusetts block front chest with the help of Mr. Glen Huey's "Building Period Furniture." Several projects in this book call for building the case backboards during the finishing process "because they are unfinished." I am curious as to why the backboards are not finished. If...
