  1. Staircase rail and newel post

    I did this commission a while back. I had to build a newel post, rail and ballausters to match the existing ones on the second floor. This is an old house, so they also wanted it to look like it belonged. The last two pictures are the originals at the top of the stairs. Apparently there was...
  2. 1930 Porch Railing Recreation...

    I was asked by a friend of mine to create the original porch railing of his 1930 craftsman style home. I wasn't sure I was up for this job and honestly thought I had gotten myself in over my head. I am not a carpenter. I just enjoy working with wood. I have very little training and what I do...
  3. Presentation Rails

    Made these rails to display artwork. (Originally for a gallery show, but then I brought them home and put em up in my room…) The rail bodies are made from cherry plywood, and the endcaps are Spanish cedar. I made three of them… about 6,5,3 feet long. The rails are sized so that the gaps...
  4. Scrapbook Desk

    I designed this desk for my wife for her Cricut scrapbooking supply. If you're not familiar with a Cricut machine, it's similar to an ink jet printer or small plotter, but uses a cutting knife instead of ink. The machine uses plug-in cartridges that typically include several themed patterns or...
  5. Bar

    I just finished a big project that has taken me almost 2 years to complete. This is a custom designed and built bar in my basement. The design is one my wife and I came up with. I designed and built the entire project (with my wife's help of course) We knew we wanted an old style bar, so we...
  6. Star Ornaments

    These are a few star ornaments I cut on my scroll saw. The one with red is hand painted, while the entirely white one is spray painted.
  7. Closet Storage Unit

    I created this out of necessity because the old brownstone we live in is lacking sufficient closets. KT and I have a good deal of open-air space and high ceilings but we sacrifice storage space. The loft has a small 5 foot wide (only 22" deep) closet augmented by an unfortunate particle board...
  8. Stair Rail

    The Project This is a stair rail I built for my mother-in-law. It is 13' Maple tree supported by a pine board, two screws, and a maple branch. Ths is was my first "installation" piece, and it was quite an experience. I will try to write about it. I will include pictures at the end. I told...
  9. Bathroom Cabinet

    Wanted a cabinet in the bathroom that sat above the tank of the toilet…..Got a stash of Ash wood, made some fancy Raised Panel door…..Frames for the doors are a mitered half lap. 2 small wooden knobs serve as the door handles…magnetic catches inside hold the door shut ( so I won't bang my...
  10. Kitchen/Bathroom Doors

    I was commissioned by a friend, who is in the process of ready-ing his house to be sold, to overhaul his cabinets. His house is approximately 25 years old and has the original MDF slab doors with brass hardware (very 90's in look). He asked me to modernize it with something eye catching to...
  11. Mantle Clock

    I made this mantle clock out of cherry and mahogany. We used an oil based polyurethane finish. I chose a white piece of glass for the front of the clock as i thought it matched best with the rest of the clock.
  12. Pens I made for a swap

    The first two pens are a couple of pens I made to do a pen swap with a guy from Australia. The first pen is made with Mesquite burl and I had to make it without the clip seeing Penn State Industaries sent the wrong clip with kits. The second is made with Desert Ironwood and is a Wallstreet II...

  14. Double Urn

    Double urn that I made for my in-laws when my father-in-law passed away. It is made out of black walnut, birds-eye maple and ebony.
  15. antique maple into Celtic sideboard

    i had some 100 plus year old maple i salvaged from a local ohio farmhouse that i thought might make for a sideboard that looked like it had some history to it. lots of powder post beetle borings belie the pieces true age. i keep forgetting that some of this old growth wood gets pretty heavy on...
  16. Asian Inspired Picnic Trays

    This is a picnic "basket" inspired by 19th Century Chinese meal carriers. My understanding is that each tray would hold a complete meal and each tray was unstacked and served. Long story short a pin that runs through the handle secures the top and subsequently each tray to the the base of the...
  17. Stand up desk

    I still have a metric boatload of reclaimed oak lying around and a friend needed a stand up style desk for his office. So out to the shop I go… Top is 48" wide by 28" deep and 2" thick, reclaimed red oak with a light stain and waxed finish. Legs are .250" X 2.00" steel with 1/2" round supports...
  18. Book shelf and Mantel cap

    Nice little project I did for a customer of mine. They had just the surround with the flutted sides including plinth blocks and capitals (as you can see in the before picture). They were unsure how to cap it off, and wanted to add the built-in book shelves to each side. Built the boxes out of...
  19. Custom Railing with Removable Section

    This is a custom railing that I made for a client. The only reason I post this is the special feature of the removable bottom section, which I thought might be of interest to some. The owners felt, quite rightly, that the bottom section needed to be removable to allow furniture and large items...
  20. Christmas gifts

    Well here are some of the Christmas projects I made this year. The green cabinet is for my son who is going to college next year, the matching bookshelves, (only 1 in the photos) were for my girlfriends daughters and the toy box is for my grandson. Pictures yet to come of the full length mirror...
