  1. Nursery: window seat, bookshelves and desk.

    I finished this nursery room last year. It was my first try at cabinetry and took about 3 months of spare time. I used birch plywood (would do MDF if painting again) and then poplar for all the trim. It was also my first shot at making 5 piece doors, drawers and all that fun stuff. I fell in...
  2. Rear fence

    I was commisioned to build this fence because the old fence was rotten and about to fall apart. we decided to use 5/4×6 for the pickets and chose vinyl lattice for the top. Once it begins to warm up again and stay dry, I will seal it.
  3. Oak Bed With A "TWIST"

    I made this oak bed frame to complete my bedroom set. The original design was from wood magazine Issue 187 November 2008: But I didn't really like the pencil-posts or canopy top, then I found a video from St Pierre Woodworking on how to make the spiral legs. To make the legs round, I made...
  4. Posts, Vines, and Grapes ...

    An object made in solid wood is an object that can be carved … This is a simple premise, and it often enhances the impact of themes and the beauty of architectural features or furniture. We didn't turn the posts, they arrived completed, sanded, and prepped to carve. Our client wanted to impart...
  5. Cedar Post Deck Railing

    Using old "naturally harvested" (they fell down on their own) cedar logs I built deck posts that would support a stainless-steel cable railing. It had three requirements: 1) It had to tie into the theme of my log home. 2) Not block our view of the lake when sitting down with a glass of wine 3)...
  6. Solid oak bookcase

    Built this solid oak bookcase from roughsawn oak lumber I have from a true I harvested and had milled. Only exception is the plywood back panel. Contains details of rosettes, stepped dentil moulding, and flutes. Solid as a rock dado joinery. Finished in wiping stain followed by wiping poly...
  7. Carved lidded box

    This is just a fill in time project that turned out OK. Started with a 6" square blank and turned the bottome to get the supports (pict 5) and went from there.
  8. New Foreman On The Job

    I haven't posted in a while and this may very well be "overkill" but I wanted a semi-permanent spot for my Kreg Foreman pocket hole machine. There are also times when I wanted more bench surface. This seemed to fit both purposes. The center of the bench will accommodate the Foreman and it can be...
  9. Tamarack & White Oak Box

    I made this box for my Mom for Christmas. The middle piece is from the old firewood pile that sat in frount of her house for 20 years. I love the knotts. Its a perfect piece of North Idaho Larch. The oak is from a blow over tree that my mom helped me winch up onto my trailer. The walnut accents...

    top is salvaged 200 yr old maple floor boards from farm house (complete with powder post beetle holes). base is pine with a stain made from left over green porch paint, ... seems to highlight the grain nicely. when it comes to this process, less sanding is better for paint absorbtion and grain...

  13. Walnut plank headboard

    Walnut Headboard for the wifey. I made this big enough for a full or queen. It has a plank style back with mortise and tenon jointery. The posts are 5×5 sq posts with cedar 3×3 centers (since walnut is too expensive for something that big, plus it helps with keeping the weight down. My wife...
  14. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I didn't think that when I joined Lumberjocks that I would have been so interested as to stick around for three years and made as many posts as I have (12,676). I have enjoyed every minute of it and like welcoming the new jocks as they join up. Now I need to get back out to the shop and get...
  15. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Well, this is post number 1000. It's hard for me to believe that I am that mouthy, but the proof is before my eyes. I have never belonged to a website before, never posted a blog or commented on anything on the net. Then I found LumberJocks. Where I live there is no one to talk shop with. You...
  16. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    This is post number 2000. Seems like it was about a week ago I hit 1000. Time flys when you are having fun. Thanks for the good times, folks. I would miss all of you if you weren't here.
  17. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    A year ago I wrote here on forums about a Mantle Clock I had just inherited from my Daddy whom had just died. I had it put up and had no pictures of it. I noticed on the link I just put above from the original thread that GMman had left me links that have since been removed (I don't know why)...
  18. Finishing
    Hi everyone. I'm new to this site, but I have enjoyed reading all the information so far. From everything that I've read, it seems like the best thing to use for sealing my outdoor cypress porch posts/columns would be to use spar varnish. We are building a new home and I have a lot of...
  19. Woodworking Skill Share
    Not sure if this is the right place to post this, I need some opinions and advice on how to complete this. I'm re-doing my porch at our new place and my wife is not only wanting posts but she wants me to do the header beam in the same. My problem is the header beam is structural support, so...

    HELP WITH BRICK FENCE POSTS Hi Folks, I've been off the blog for the past few very busy days, something about an infestation of mice in our RV. Problem now solved so I can get back to more pressing things. I am having a new fence put in around our place with a double 10 ft. gate for the RV. I...
