  1. Arts and Crafts Nightstands

    Here are my arts and crafts nightstands in quartersawn red oak. They feature one small, over two large drawers with storage in mind. The lower assembly is built with through tenons and double walnut pegs. Drawers are dovetailed, with poplar and aromatic cedar used as secondary woods. Side...
  2. Mens Valet

    I found this idea from LJ's Roger in Kentucky who found it in the May 2005 Wood magazine. Look his up, as he did a cool job. Anyway, I put in the favorites for another day. Early in December my 16 year old was looking for a project as a Christmas gift and this fit the bill. This is his build...
  3. New shop clock

    This is my new shop clock. It replaced a small and annoyingly loud plastic one. Not knocking the "go to" standard shop clock (the ten inch saw blade clock) I settled on this idea. The piece is larger than it may appear in the picture. In fact that's why I placed a 10" blade was to help provide...
  4. Tea Cabinet

    I wanted an Japanese themed Tea/Sake Cabinet I could give as a gift. I was inspired by a piece I saw from Mike Pekovich and designed it around a 1" x 6" x 9' QSRO I found at the Orange Borg. I added the interior Shelf/Drawers. All hand-cut Dovetails. Again, I incorporated some of my "rescued...
  5. Artist Easel - Counterbalanced

    Built this as a present for the wife… It's entirely built with QSRO with Watco Dark Walnut Danish Oil I ran across these killer boards and couldnt pass them up… hunt for a project to showcase them began and this was the result. It has 2 sliding sections, the main 60" carriage and the center...
  6. Wife's kitchen cabinets, renovation.

    This is an update long over due. Finally finished the vast majority of the year and a half project. Lots of demolition work, complete re-wiring and plumbing, insulation, drywall, painting and cabinet making and installation. And the counter top is also homemade except the slab on the island...
  7. Small Garden Pallet Wood Bench

    In the beginning of spring, my wife had asked me to start acquiring pallets for a garden project she wanted to do. Once she started realizing how much work went into pulling apart pallets and extracting all the rusty nails, she was quickly "over it." One of the pallets in particular had some...
  8. Wedge and Strap Arts and Crafts Dresser

    Here is my interpretation of an arts and crafts 6 drawer dresser. Although it shares some design features with the Harvey Ellis 9 drawer dresser and the Gustav Stickley #906, I added a wedge and strap detail on the tapered backsplash. It is designed to look like a leather strap tightened by a...
  9. Arts and Crafts Entertainment Center / Sideboard

    Here is my arts and crafts entertainment center, which is reminiscent of a Stickley sideboard. The design of the central splat detail gives a nod to Kevin Rodel. The backsplash features my "Wedge and Strap" detail, which is designed to look like a wedge driven laterally to tighten a leather...
  10. Oak Money Bank?

    I made this box just for fun with the leftovers from cutting two larger wine cork displays. It's only 7"x7"x2.5" so it won't hold nearly as many wine corks as it's big brothers. While in the finishing stage, my brother really took a liking to it and ask if he could have to put change in...
  11. Hand Tools
    I am making a cutting board using nicely figured 6/4 walnut, entirely with hand tools. This will be a face grain cutting board to show the figure rather than an end grain board. I would like to cut a finger groove in the ends, but I don't have a power router. What is the best technique to...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I just upgraded my dust collector to a bigger 2hp. I am going to run new hose or pipes. I would rather run it along the ceiling so I dont have to trip over it on the floor. Before I do all this I was just looking for some tips or suggestions. Is there an advantage to one way or the other. Will...

    Laminated Posts This is the queen size bed that I am building. Material is quartersawn red oak. - - - - - I started with some veneers for the legs. I resawed some 3/4" stock at the bandsaw, and planed them to thickness. Then I wrapped them with some shrink wrap to keep them flat. - -...

    If you had to chose between one of the two in a shop, which would you pick and why?
