  1. The taming of the table.

    Just a while back on here I asked advice about restoring my 100+ year old dining table that belonged to my 2x great grandmother. The table was put into storage after it had been used as a saw horse and had three skill saw cuts put into the top. Two cuts across grain and one with the grain...
  2. Minimalist mixed end grain chess board

    I've seen this type of end grain chess board around and decided to try my hand at it. I didn't make the chess pieces…they're from the Frank Lloyd Wright Collection. Board is 14" square. Wood used for light squares: maple, ash, white oak, beech, yellowheart. Wood used for dark squares...

  6. Cherry bed

    This is an arts & crafts/mission style bed out of cherry. These nightstands were built to match. I like the look of the cherry and particularly the change in color and pattern from heart to sapwood. I haven't had any issues using both. Were I to do it over, I'd match all of the slats from...
