  1. Projects Sewing Machine Platform Extension

  4. Yoga Boards/Platforms (for doing yoga on carpet)

    My wife has been taking yoga classes for a few years, but she has been doing more of it at home recently. Until now, she had been doing it in our kitchen, but it's not a great environment. She and a friend had also talked about practicing together, and our kitchen won't accommodate that. Now...

  6. Baltic Birch Japanese Tatami Bed.

    When our daughters got older, we had to build a king-sized custom bed. Most beds we saw were too "platform" like, which sat too close to the floor. So we decided to make ours about 12.5" high to allow for extra storage beneath. If you don't want the storage, make the legs shorter! We used...
  7. File Drawer Platform | Custom

    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...

  12. Pallet style platform bed for daughter #3

    I built hope chests for my first two daughters, but #3 sent me a picture of a pallet bed that she saw on Pinterest that she liked and asked if I would make her that instead.

  14. Toddler Bed "Compromise" - I think I won!

    Little man just turned 2 and it is time for a toddler bed. I google image searched "toddler bed". I saw a lot I liked, but the one I was most intrigued with was the Oeuf bed. I liked the two tone finish and the lines of the bed rails. My wife, on the other hand was not sold on the two-tone...

  18. Yoga Board/Platform 2.0 (for doing yoga on carpet)

    It's difficult to do yoga on carpet. It's much easier to do it with your mat on a firm surface like a wood or tile floor. Our Yoga room is carpeted, so I made this board/platform to act as a substitute floor. It's made of 5/8" thick bamboo flooring planks glued to a 1/4" sheet of birch plywood...
