  1. Dimensional Poster Art

    About 6 years ago I started making these 3-dimensional posters using 5.2mm MDF that is sanded and painted. They are layered and every layer is a solid color. I started off making reproductions of my favorite movies like Star Wars. I have probably done over 50 now. The Cocooned Skeleton is 4...
  2. Arts & Crafts Poster Frame

    We went to the Port Townsend, WA Wooden Boat Festival last year for my birthday. My girlfriend bought this poster with the understanding that I'd make a frame for it. I finally got around to it. Here's what I came up with, thanks to Dan's inspiration. I chickened out on the fancy scrollwork...
  3. Night Stands

    This is my second furniture project. I made two of these in a furniture class taught by Michael Colca. They are his design and he is an amazing teacher. The wood is sipo and tiger maple; I used a danish oil to finish. I learned a lot and there are many (tiny) mistakes, but it was a joy...
  4. Picture Frame #2

    This picture frame is made to fit a standard poster, it is made from oak and has mitered corners with dowels through them at a 45 degree angle. I used the dowels because my ceiling is too low to put this frame in my spline jig on the table saw. It has chamfered edges and the oak has some old...
  5. Show Poster Frame - Purple Heart with bubinga splines

    So this is all that I've been doing lately. And I am going to continue until all of those cardboard tubes in my storage closet are empty. Why pay $200+ when I can crank these out for about $50/piece. This is the first time I have included a mat in the equation. I think the natural hues from the...
  6. Matching Beds | Daybed and Poster Platform| Custom

    These are a couple Kids beds that were built in September 2015. They were custom build for a customer with a certain height in mind. One of the bed was going under a window. I made the two beds in the same style. I desined two chest that were made to fit together. I also made a nightstand...
  7. Pine 4 Post Bed | Custom

    This is a pine 4 poster that was completed in May 2009. It is a version of my Spanish Rose bed that I use to build a lot. This one had the iron replaced with a slat style. I also added the sliding/hidden drawer at the foot. This finish is just a clear coat using pre-catalyzed lacquer. For...

  9. Arts & Crafts Poster Frame Revisited

    After staring at the poster frame I made a while ago every night, I decided to "Dan" it up a bit. I sliced the sides off and used the sanding drum to make the cutouts. I'm much happier with it now. I also took the opportunity to knock the Red Mahogany Danish Oil down a tad with the Mission...
  10. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Hi, I am a woodworking instructor and would like to find a poster or chart showing the commonly used joints in woodworking. For example: butt, rabbit, mortise & tenon, dovetail, tongue & groove, scarf, etc. I want to use it as a teaching aid. I haven't found anything on the Internet. If you...
  11. Focus on the Workspace
    Okay not really. But it does have a history. First off, I live in a 1930's "kit" home in Vermont. You know the type - modular. Layouts were in catalogues, etc. If you visit my "shop" here on LJ's you'll catch a picture of one of my two working surfaces in my basement shop. The one I'm talking...

    Haunted Forest TWO poster printing This is a new technique I wanted to try. Previous projects, I have tried the drawn on technique as well as carbon paper. Thought of using a projector or finding a large format print shop, but searched the internet and found the technique of breaking part a...
  14. Woodworking Skill Share
    Has any one used biscuit's when makeing edgegrain cutting boards ? I am pretty sure it would not work with endgrain boards but thought it might help with the alingment and maybe cutdown on sanding time on edgegrain boards .
  15. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I certainly hope I'm posting this in the right place..I'm brand new here and don't want to offend. You see, I'm not a woodworker, but I am a lover of art and talent. I guess I'm a bit of a woodworking "groupie", if you will. :) So, the deal is, I have been on the hunt for an office desk for...
