  1. Greene and Greene Motawi Tile Frame

    We visited the Gamble House in Pasadena. As a woodworker, I was so moved by the craftsmanship that when my girlfriend showed me the Motawi tiles she really liked, I told her I would make a commemorative frame for them in the Greene and Greene style. It was extremely difficult for such a small...
  2. 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...
  3. Craftsman Headboard

    I made this for us out of quartersawn white oak. I finished it with TransTint Reddish Brown in alcohol so there would be no raising of the grain between the spindles. Ingenious design to moun the spindles inside of a box joint strip. Looks like an instant antique. I'm making a dresser to go...
  4. Welcome tiles framed in qtr sawn white oak

    As explained in a blog, pressed a wholes bunch of tiles a couple weeks ago. Several were of my Welcome Tile carving. I've made several of these tiles over the years. So many , I have 3 molds. One is nearly worn out. Tiles are bronze coated stoneware clay with acid patina Frames are half-lap...
  5. Quilt Hanger

    This is a quilt hanger I built for my Father's wife. The material is quartersawn white oak that was stained to the "honey" color you see and finished off with three coats of varnish . The only unique thing about the hanger is that the front "squares" on the ends are removable so that the quilt...
  6. Craftsman Sliding Closet Doors

    Built these sliding closet doors for my complete house remodel project that's been going on the past 3 years. Built with Quarter sawn white oak. Laminated stiles with a finished dimension of 1-3/8" thick. My first attempt at making doors (besides cabinet doors) and it went really well. I...
  7. 'Old Time' Meters

    100% recycled everything. The meters are from a retrofitted power station on the N. Island of New Zealand, the wood is quartersawn cedar from a kitchen cabinet shop which regularly puts out their offcuts for the public to take away. The meters have actually been recalibrated to read 0-800ma on...
  8. 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...
  9. Oak Utility-Sink Stand

    Here is my somewhat recently completed Oak Utility-Sink Stand that I made for a family member to help with the constant cleaning needs caused by their new baby, my new niece! The stand had to be heavy duty due to the nearly 100lb Kohler cast-iron sink. The bottom shelf had to be removable for...
  10. Roycroft Bookshelf Reproductions

    My parents have been looking for a new table for their family room for months, AND I had been looking for a new project to do! So I thought I'd surprise them with one of these Roycroft Bookshelfs. I found plans in sketchup on the internets and began about 2 weeks ago. I really do love...
  11. Quartersawn White Oak Extension Table

    This is a quartersawn white oak extension table. When closed, it measures 6' 4 1/4". When open, it measures 19' 4 1/4". I have thirteen one foot leaves. The center support is actually two, but when closed, appears to be one, so it actually has four sets of legs. The finish is yellow dye...
  12. Quartersawn white oak nightstand ala mission style

    This is the latest piece for my own bedroom set that is my interpretation of the classic mission style. It's a 26" tall, 17" wide, and 14" deep nightstand that is built out of quartersawn white oak. The secondary wood is maple for the drawers, and ebony for the square plugs, and handle. This is...
  13. "Manta"

    Every once in a while I actually design something that isn't a box. I was asked by a good friend to make a table for his newly installed restaurant booth area in his condo. The booth design was a collaboration between him and I and the table design started out the same way. Once of his...
  14. Arts & Crafts Gentleman's Chest

    For a long time now, I've been living out of one of those damned Rubbermaid dressers from Wal-Mart. It's made me feel a little white trash, so I took a couple of weeks off from working on Cathi's house and bought some quartersawn white oak for some plans that I've had for years. Six hundred...
  15. a nice pair of tongs

    Last weekend, I was looking for a quick little project to fill in some time, while I was waiting for glue to dry on my little cherry box. I've been meaning to make this pair of tongs, from an older Wood magazine project for some time. I grabbed a piece of nice straight grained oak, I'd rescued...
  16. "For Frank"

    I was very lucky this summer to have toured Frank Llyod Wright's Taliesin in Spring Green, Wisconsin. The house and property are absolutely breathtaking. While on the tour of the main house I noticed a very unique box sitting on one of the tables and asked the tour guide about it. She said it...
  17. Quarter sawn cedar planter & bench

    Here's the challenge: Run of the mill materials. I decided to build this project entirely from big-box store construction lumber. Every stick comes from the local Lowe's (not my usual supplier). I choose cedar for its outdoor durability, but I sought an upscale appearance. After an intense...
  18. Craftsman oak & mica lamp

    Here's a variation on a project I saw a few years back in either Wood or American Woodworker. I made the four sided center post a slight pyramid which radically changes all the other geometry including the corbels and the dovetailed arms that hold the shade. The shade is made of 1/4" thick...
  19. Charles Limbert Dining Table Restored

    I had the chance and the honor to work on an authentic Charles Limbert dining table over the past few weeks. The table was 48 inches in diameter and had only one of its leaves remaining. At first, I was asked just to refinish the top and caulk paint the base. I wasn't commissioned to do any type...
  20. Plant Stand / Tabouret

    The dimensions for this projects came from "Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture". Bottom stretchers are M&T into the legs. There are top stretchers (not visible in photos) that are dovetailed into the tops of the legs. It is constructed from QSWO. The finish was an aniline dye, and then...
