    Queen made from cocobolo. Finished with HUT EEE wax. I'm not real happy with the hut wax, but it's the only thing I have for larger turnings. Suggestions for alternative finishes welcome!

  4. Maple Platform Bed with twisted accents

    Platform bed for my daughter. Made with maple (some turned out to be curly) with pine accents salvaged from the remodel of a school/theater where she discovered her love of musical theater. A reminder of one of her favorite places she can see every night. The bookshelves are inspired by a...
  5. Chess set(s)

    Went through a phase where I had to build chessboards. I went looking for a nice set of chess pieces in carved wood (hah!). You can spend an arm and a leg for pieces! The squares on these boards are quite large, 2.25" square, so I need big pieces. In the end, I settled for ceramic pieces...
  6. Connecticut Lowboy

    I started building this maybe 3 years ago (time flies) and finally finished it early this summer. Made from plans found in popular woodworking magazine, article by Glen D. Huey. As per the article I think this project was a great intro into building period furniture. Not too complicated as long...
  7. Walnut Table...Rust-egant?? Ele-rustic??

    This is a table I came up with when a buddy gave me some end-grain slabs of black walnut from a downed tree on his property. The only thing I could think to do with them was use them for table tops. This table uses the first of two pieces I received. The belt sander didn't work too well (even...
  8. Boat Bed | Built for a Queen

    This is a boat bed that was built for a customer in December 2017. They wanted a queen size version of a nautical theme boat bed that I've built several times before. We took the design that we had for the twin and full and redesigned it to fit a 60×80 queen mattress. We added lights in the...

    This is my first attempt at making a chessboard. The project started off as just a chessboard and ended up getting bigger.

  11. Ship Wrecked Boat Bed | Custom

    No it is not broken! This was intentional. The customer wanted a version of the boat bed that was made to look like it had been ship wrecked. There were several techniques that were used. We made the front bow to be removable, made the mast mount at an angle, made cracked side rails, and...

    Just a fun project. This was a collaborative effort between my wife and I for the street party she's organizing on 4th June to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. She Photoshopped the image merging the legs from one photo onto another photo of the rest of the body. Then she had the whole...

    This is the last of the community woodworking projects that I had to complete for our street party on 4th June to celebrate our queen's diamond jubilee. One day my wife came home from work with an old oak carver chair from a dining suite. The conversation went something like this: Wife: Can...
  16. Spinning Queen Ann Tilt Top Tea Table in Black Walnut

    I started by purchasing a 3' diameter black walnut log from the late great Simmie Again of Lambertville, NJ. I then took the log to Strimples Sawmill, because this was years before I owned my own sawmills, and lumber company. The top is a bookmatched crotch, the tilt runners are mortised out for...

    A friend approached me with a design for chess pieces that would be a Christmas gift for her husband. I don't own a lathe, so I was a little hesitant until she showed me some sketches. The pieces are all cubes and shaped based loosely on the movement of the piece. The pawns are 1"x1"x1"...
