  1. Barn Door Baby Gate For A Dog Sitter

    A customer of mine watches dogs of all sizes. During feeding time she needed to separate them as well as keep them out the kitchen when cooking. She found a picture online she liked and asked me to re-create it. Made from 1x pine. Some tool and saw marks left in, others added. Distressed with...
  2. Walnut Poker Table

    I was able to obtain some air dried walnut for this table. For the finish I put 2 coats of teak oil rubbed in, and then 6 coats of the wipe-on polyurethane. For the final coat, I wet rubbed with 0000 steel wool and some lemon oil. It turned out very smooth. The teak oil really brought out...
  3. Set of 4 Custom Coasters

    This is a set of handmade coasters I produced for a friend. She lives in and grew up around Rochester, NY, also known as "The Flower City" for their annual Lilac Festival. The woodburned design on the coaster holder is directly from the flag of the City of Rochester. The coasters are made from...
  4. Modern Style Beveled Edge Dinning Table

    I recently completed a new table for a client on the East Coast. He and I worked on refining a design from a simple concept to one that had the details he was looking for. The main feauture of this table was the base design. Very modern with two small rectangles that make up the legs and then a...
  5. Baby Crib

    Well, the crib is finally complete. It was done using cherry for the majority of the unit, with accents of maple on the top of the end caps. The finish was 3 coats of wipe-on satin poly., which I have become a believer in through this project. Now that this project is done, I'm taking a little...
  6. Wooden fountain pen made with Mahogany, Walnut, and Maple

    This was a gift that I made for a company gift exchange. I glued some strips of Mahogany, Walnut, and Maple into a pen blank, and ordered the fountain pen kit from pennstateind.com. Then I turned the pen blank on my mini lathe. It was a super simple project, but one thing I had to be careful...
  7. Cedar Sign

    So I needed a easy project and one that was easy on the muscles, so I have been wanting to dabble in in a bit of sign making and so I purchased the The Miles craft Sign crafter Kit The sign is for my newly made fence and its basically a 2 foot 1×6 cedar scrap I had lying around. The jig makes...
  8. Restored Tilt Top Table

    Restored tilt top table for a friend. All three legs had to reattached, which led to some creative clamping (second picture). There were also many bits that had simply broken off over time. Each of the three tripod legs had snapped off at some point in the life of this table, and blocks had to...
  9. Sofa Table with Granite Insert

    I was selected to build a Mission style sofa table with some granite scraps from the clients kitchen. I used elements of Mission furniture such as through tenons, side slats, shelf, similar dimensions, and corbels, but that is where the similarities end. The top and shelf are cherry with...
  10. Very Basic Construction Lumber TV Stand From Douglas Fir 2X

    This was my first attempt at getting commissioned. I don't think I will do it again because I don't think the appreciation is out there for the amount of work it takes to build something like this. I know this for sure based on the low ball request that I must have been out of my mind to agree...
  11. Cedar Memorial Post with Plaque

    This project was an honor to work on. A client's father passed away and she asked me to complete a memorial plaque. The VA had only gotten a small ground plaque and she wanted something that stood higher up. The cedar for the plaqye came from a fellow LJ (Matt Alexander) Really beatiful stuff...
  12. Bed Frame Refinish

    Ok, so this is my first project on here, and being the college student that I am, I don't have enough money right now for any camera other than my phone. So, I hope you can see the difference well enough to appreciate this project. From the pictures you can see that I have taken the white wash...
  13. Class plaque

    Class plaque I made in June, 2000 while attending "Knife and Fork" school at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida. I did the work in my barracks room with no power tools and only a knife and screwdriver. I believe the wood is walnut from a tree that was cut down on the base. The gold lettering...
  14. iPad Pulpit

    Here's an interesting project. This is a pulpit (podium) for iPad. It's made of reclaimed American Chestnut barn wood, steel, aluminum, and calf skin leather. The chestnut came from a barn we call our "Chestnut Barn" that we tore down in Pennsylvania. The patina on the surface was so nice and...

    The tray is made of 1/4" poplar with polyurethane finish. Dimensions: 18"x11"x2.5"
  16. Found Wood Spruce + Antler Cane

    This found wood cane uses spruce [no insects this time] with the outer bark removed down to the inner bark. I gentily warmed the bark to raise the sap in beads on the surface. Then with a rubber glove rubbed the sap onto the surface . I'd like to think this adds to the colour but I could just be...
  17. Live Edge Maple side table

    This is a slab of Maple about 2" thick X 16" X 13". It came from a tree on my property about 2 years ago. I cut the slab with my chainsaw, then used my router to level it up on both sides, following that with a sanding disc on a grinder, finishing up with sanderpaper, 50 grit, 80, 150, 220...
  18. Diamond Willow + Antler Tee Handle Cane #2

    I don't think this is really a true tee handle cane. I left enough antler at the rear of the handle so the whole hand can grasp the handle without needing to hook the index finger in front of the shaft. But I was hoping to keep the option open to still use this cane as a tee handle by leaving a...

    This tee handle cane uses diamond willow for the shaft and elk antler for the handle. Materials Wood - Diamond willow Handle - Elk tine Bottom - Brass tipped [rubber cap] Finish - Wipe-on Poly Thank you for your interest. Sold
  20. Live Edge Sofa Arm Table

    Made this on a bit of sudden inspiration for what to do with a live edge cut off I got for free somewhere. Didn't know what wood it was, turned out to be aromatic cedar. Tiger Maple was actually from HD. I tried to keep as much of the live edge as possible, but the top shown is significantly...
