  1. Cedar-lined Blanket Chest

    This is a cedar-lined blanket chest I made for my sister for her birthday (actually this will cover all her birthdays for the rest of her life…at least that's what I told her). A few years back she'd casually mentioned how neat it would be to find an "old-fashioned" chest for storage. I'd kind...
  2. Mission Coffee Table

    This is one of the earlier pieces that I made. I think that I did an OK job on it for the experience that I had when I made it, but I know where the flaws are on it, and I tend to always look at them instead of the parts that came out well. I used white oak for the legs, aprons, and the...
  3. Melissa's Craftsman Style Mailbox

    Melissa heard I did a little hobby woodworking. She wanted to surprise her husband with a custom-built mailbox for their Craftsman-style home. She found one online, but the $200 price tag was a little too much for their limited budget. I offered to build it for the price of materials (I wanted...
  4. Travel Apothecary Box

The lid is held on with rare earth magnets and index pins made from finish nails. The handle is a cut down .22 Hornet case. The finish is many coats of gloss spray lacquer...
  6. Quarter Sawn Oak End table

    This table was made from a plan trio that I purchased from Rockler. It included end table, coffee table, and hall table. I first made the coffee table from standard red oak and it was very sturdy and beautiful, so while at the lumber yard some time later, I decided to pick up some quarter-sawn...
  7. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I live in New England, Vermont actually and even though I'm originally from New York (Long Island), I can not, WILL NOT root for the NEW JERSEY GIANTS!!! Since my AFC Buffalo Bills aren't in it, I MUST root for the AFC Champions: The New England Patriots! Your team, your thoughts? I'll check...
  8. Wood & Lumber
    I know I could just Google it but I thought it would be a good topic for the board in case anyone else is curious. Also, where do the "tiger stripes" in quarter-sawn oak come from?
