  1. First Try with Dremel Router

    Here is my first try at router woodworking. Used an old Dremel 400 XPR that I have used around the garage for grinding, cutting, and polishing. Thought I would give routering a try. The old raised grain weathered wood was quite the challenge for the 1/8" router bit. But, I think the jagged...
  2. Bi-Fold closet doors

    Our master bedroom closets are bastard sizes, so I decided that I would make two sets of doors for my first woodworking project. They are made from 12' by 5/4 rough poplar. The first two have been pre-assembled to make sure all the parts fit as they were intended. The remaining two will be...
  3. Aromatic Cedar Essential Oil Box

    Here is an aromatic cedar essential oil box that I made. It is in the green and green style. I used walnut for the pluges and the drawer pull. It also has a raised panel top and removable tray and drawer. The drawer sides are made of cypress. It was made entirely with hand tools, and holds about...
  4. Entry way Phase 2 ... Almost done

    Its been a while… here was my phase one post. The only things not completed are the cabinet doors, which will match the raised panel drawers, and crown molding. The cabinets are built out of birch and maple plywood with poplar face frames. The coat hanger is cherry to match the bench. We dont...
  5. Raised garden bed from Cedar slabs I milled

    These are some raised garden beds I made for the wife. Pretty simple design, there is (4) 8'x4' boxes around a small octagon herb garden in the middle. It is all made of 8/4 cedar planks with one live edge for looks. It is nice to have a Woodmizer LT40 to cut my own slabs to do this kind of...
  6. Two solid cedar raised beds. Double dovetail joinery.

    Constant renewal is the theme in our garden. This time though I decided that these raised beds were going to last a very long time. Four by eight cedar beams from a local yard in Bremmerton were cut using double dovetail construction thereby eliminating the need for corner posts. All beams...
  7. Pallets to planters

    I wanted to build some raised garden beds for a few reasons, one being to keep the dogs from digging in the beds and to keep them from naturally "watering" the plants. Also, for ease of maintenance. I started pricing cedar and redwood and decided to go the cheap route and found some great 4'x9'...
  8. Halloween Relief Sign

    Hey all, This was my first hand routed raised (Relief) sign. I drew up a quick pattern idea in photoshop this morning and went to work. The wood is 3/4 whitewood from HD. I glued on the pattern and routed out the detail with a 1/8 straight bit, and routed the rest with a 1/4 round nose bit for a...

  11. Elevated Garden Bed

    My neighbor was a fan of the raised garden beds my wife and I made but mentioned how she had a bad back and would want something elevated for ease of access. We secretly built her this garden box and left it on her driveway where she found it on the morning of her official retirement day. She...
  12. Raising Gardens and Families

    Once I said to my oldest daughter, "I don't want to do things for you, but I would love to do things with you." I think she took offense to that … at first. As time went by, I think she understood what I meant. Life is made up of time spent. Some of the most wonderful time is spent doing...
  13. My "First Project"

    I'm starting to find my way around this awsome website, enjoying the great projects and comments posted by the contributors. In particular "first projects" touch a place in my heart. I remember the sense of accomplishment as this little keepsake urn came alive in my hands, turning some scrap...
  14. Maple Bowl with Leather

    This is an enclosed Maple bowl that I recently did (I've been a bit remiss in my project postings lately). It is accented with leather lace, turquoise beads and silver findings. It is approximately 5″ in diameter and 2 1/4″ tall and finished with just a bit of beeswax. I believe that the deep...
  15. Raised Flower Bed

    A Charter School in my area, Asked me if I could assemble a Raised Bed Flower Bed. For the kids to learn about gardening. They had purchased most of the wood. I bought the rest required and proper screws to assemble it. Took about 4 hours to put it all together. It is 4 foot wide x 20 foot long...
  16. Raised Herb Garden

    This is a raised herb garden I built for a friend (actually built two). Made it out of cedar, and used pocket screws as well as deck screws. It measures 60" long x 18" deep x 40" tall.
  17. Red Oak Entertainment Center

    Entertainment center made as a gift for friends of my daughter. I'm pretty happy with it although there are plenty of mistakes. I still think of myself as a novice and have a long way to go. Slowly but surely accumulating the right tools, techniques and skills. In particular I need to be more...
  18. Bathroom Cabinet Doors

    It seems like everybody is showing work they've done on cabinet doors lately. I'd like to show you these doors I made 20 years ago in 1986. We had a little corner in our bathroom right next to the door, so I filled in the space with a linen cabinet. Then I decided why not try some carvings on...
  19. Raised Cutting Board with Cutout

    I've seen pictures of these online and always wanted to make one, so when I came into some material that was just right, I could see the finished project from the start. Solid ash, about 1 1/4" thick. These started as flat slabs glued up in typical fashion, then I sliced 1" strips off the sides...
  20. White Ross Murphy Bed | Custom

    This is the first painted version of the Ross that I've built. It was completed on 5-14-2008. I actually don't paint. I use a pigmented lacquer. This one was an off-the-shelf white. I This on I used a one piece MDF door instead of the 5 piece raised panel door I normally use. This made it...
