  1. Stickley style double bookcase No. 719

    I've been working on this thing for close to forever, but it's finally done. First time I've built doors. The carcass of the bookcase is 1-1/8-inch quartersawn wood; the back is made up of individually splined 3/4-inch boards. Dimensions: 60 inches wide, 55 inches tall, 13 inches deep. The...
  2. 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...
  3. A & C Bookcase/Plantstand

    Here's piece #7 in my Stickley A&C inspired Bedroom Furniture. Combo Plant stand and Bookcase designed to fit under a window and next to the other pieces. Solid QSWO, M&T construction, Marble top shelf for the plants. Did a little different finish, used wipe on stain as the first coat, than BLO...
  4. QSWO Mission Style Media Cabinet - M&T

    Finally finished this beast. This is my biggest project yet. When I started it 4 months ago, I had a lot of questions. I came to the forum for help, and I appreciate all of the advise I got from you guys. There are nearly 80 mortise and tenons on this piece. To start this project, I picked...
  5. QSWO Arts and Crafts 3 drawer desk

    I have been methodically replacing the cheaply made furniture items in our house. The particle board desk that we have is starting to look like a horse that has been overworked during its lifetime and has a defenite dip in the middle. I have been using a lot of QSWO for projects and love the way...
  6. Keep Your Cutoffs for Pens

    So many pen makers yearn for the exotic and highly figured woods for their best pen kits. I have done the same myself. This Quartersawn White Oak taught me that the straightest grains are often just as stunning. I also learned (probably unfortunately) that I should never throw anything out...
  7. Stickley Mission Mantle Clocks

    These are the 1st clocks I've ever built. They are going to a charity auction/dinner for a group called Peruvian Partners and their Huts to Homes program. They raise money in the US to build basic homes for impoverished Peruvians on the outskirts of Lima. Each home costs about $10K with...
  8. Craftsman Garbage & Recycling Container

    This is probably a bit of overkill, but I was really tiring of bags of recycling littering the kitchen as well as the occasional late night visit to the trash by our lab. Came out far nicer than a trash can has a right to. Overall it's 34" wide x 18" deep x 29" tall, and fits 2 normal kitchen...
  9. Walnut/QSWO/Cherry DT Box ... for Ronnie

    "Ronnie" is my wife's (female) cousin. Ronnie … is coming up on Month Six of Sobriety. I'd imagine that some of you know that …. this is a huge accomplishment-not only coming to that place where you recognize that alcohol is NOT doing you any favors, but … actually quitting the bottle, and …...
  10. Craftsman Pendulum Clock

    This is my 1st commissioned piece. I made a total of 5 (plus 1 that's a bit different for a family member). Every board in the clock is QSWO, most of it with fantastic grain patterns. Trying to stay true to the work of the early 1900s, I don't try to make the grain "pop" as many LJers do...
  11. STOP!...there is more to see

    These are my renditions of Stickley octagonal tables. I thought the octagons might be difficult to make and have the sides all be equal, but I found an on-line calculator that made the lay out a snap. I made a template by cutting a square, drew the cut lines where required, cut the 4 sides on...
  12. QSWO Steamer Trunk

    I made this from a set of plans in Woodsmith magazine. The bottom was pretty simple, but those end pieces on the top . . . The drawer is luan (aka Philipine mahogany), the rest of it is quarter-sawn white oak. Quarter inch QSWO plywood on the panels. Shellac to finish.
  13. Stickley #74 Book Rack

    This is the Stickley #74 Book Rack from Pop Wood August 2012. One of the most popular things I made around the house. I am now making at least (2) more. One in cherry for the FIL this Christmas, and I have a request for a "G&G" style one for some friends.
  14. Roycroft Style Little Journeys Tabletop Book stand

    This book stand is based on the Roycroft Little Journeys tabletop book stand. The antique original measured 26"w x 7"h x 7" d (photo 5). The knock down book stand was shipped with a 16 volume set of Little Journeys stories. It had tusk tenons. My version is scaled down and measures 14" w x...
  15. Craftsman Corner Cabinet

    Just finished this corner cabinet for my mother-in-law. Wanted to build her something special for Christmas as her mother just passed away. I'll be delivering it tomorrow if my wife will let it go. The design was based on the 100 year old glass panels I found on craigslist (from a fireplace)...
  16. Pine Sliding Glass Door Unit

    Found these on my computer. I had forgotten about this project from work. Sliding door unit with transom. One door moves on rollers. All pine. Just bolt in place and add glass and finish!
  17. Stickley night stand

    I made this night stand in quarter sawn white oak from a Stickley design. This was my first real woodworking project, and I learned a ton. The quarter sawn white oak came mail order from Woodworker's Source in Arizona, shout out for great service and good wood. When I started, I didn't own a...
  18. Arts & Crafts Frame for my Weather Station

    Another piece to go along with my Bedroom A&C Furniture. I received a new weather Station for the Holiday and this piece came about for the need to hide a big Bobo that happened as I was setting it up. Had it sitting on the kitchen table and as I pulled the chair out it caught the power cord...
  19. Fireplace mantel and surround

    Solid QSWO construction of the mantel and surround installed on an existing fireplace. The client chose the wood and the basic design. The client wanted a "natural" looking finish, so I used only Tung Oil. All of the moulding and trim was custom-made by myself using QSWO. Also, I ran all of the...
  20. Stickley 713 pedestal table

    Hi LJ's. This is a project I completed a couple of years ago. It is based on the Stickley 713 pedestal table. I didn't really use any plans with the exception of the apron. I found a good procedure for kerf bending at Wood Magazine that I used as a guide. The table is 48 inches in diameter. With...
