  1. Frame and Panel Desk

    Hello all, This is my first project post. I am more than willing to accept advice from you more experienced wood workers. Most of my work, including this desk, is built out of neccessity. So, if you have any tips on giving a project like this a little more flare, bring it on. The majority...
  2. Barnwood Gun Cabinet

    A gift I made for my father. It sits in a very narrow room so it's tough to get a good picture, but I was happy with it. Love working with old barnwood and other types of re-claimed/recycled woods.
  3. Adirondack Chair in recycled cedar

    All the cedar was salvaged from a neighbor's deceased deck. I made patterns for this project, and hope to turn out a few more with the 40 or so remaining deck boards.
  4. Kaibigan Rocking Chair

    Kaibigan Rocking Chair Made with reclaimed old wood (Mangkono, Movale, Narra and Camachile). Finished with a flat varnish. 56" x 47" x 28" 'Kaibigan' is a Tagalog word that could mean both friend or lover depending on how you pronounce it. P.S. I apologize for not uploading anything for the...
  5. Soup Table

    This was a quick and simple project made out of recycled woods. The top is a slice of I think black poplar from a tree that was being trimmed. It's 17" across and maybe 2" thick. The skirt was made from a discarded piece of door casing. The oak legs were cut from old shipping pallet wood, as...
  6. Japanese Stool (Hand Tools Only)

    I built this Japanese stool for someone, and wanted to use only hand tools. The stool has 12 mortise and tenon joints, and is glued together. The lumber is recyled from an area construction site. The top was shaped using tons of saw kerfs as stop cuts along the top to the desired depth of the...
  7. Recycled Pallet Campaign Desk

    This desk was made for a client using a recycled pallet from a local construction site. The pallet was made from Austrailian Pine, some type of cedar as far as I can tell. Very beautifully raggy wood textures. The client wanted something with a "campaign twist" on it, so I added the canvas drop...
  8. Kitchen Birdhouse

    I recently replaced my fence but I didn't want to waste the used redwood. I made a number of different "art" projects from it, one of which was this birdhouse. In this particular project I left the fence wood as it was when I removed it. The birdhouse was then adorrned with other obsolete or...
  9. Lathe Stand

    A few years ago my boss offered me a wood lathe that he was going to throw out. He had bought a (much) better lathe and just wanted this one gone. I had a lot of other woodworking tools but no lathe so I was glad to have it. It came mounted on a stand made from a couple of 2X10's that just...
  10. recycled dresser

    I couldn't find a home for this old dresser so I decided convert it into a kitchen hutch. the dresser was all ready white so I gave it a good sanding, and the plywood for the upper section was from my saw table that I just rebuild. I started by priming both pieces orange, then mixing a glaze...
  11. Cantilever End Table

    This table is made 100% out of scrap wood that was destined to be burned. The boards that I decided to use were full of flaws and were so unique and colorful that the flaws had to be designed around. This End Table has so many flaws that it should have been thrown out; but the flaws make this...
  12. Tool Shed Refugee. (coffee table)

    this is my first own design for a peice of furniture. its something i dreamed up as i wanted to do something steel and use up a box of old junk so i made this at home out of a whole bunch of old tools dad found at the dump a while back and some deformed concrete reinforcing bar. in the beginning...
  13. Curly Top Recycled End Table

    This table is made out of scrap wood. Found the pieces in a throw out pile at a hardwood lumber yard. Got the OK to take them. The top is burled Hickory…...I think. Used lap joints, biscuits, and screws for the construction. Even made homemade plugs for underneath the table top supports...
  14. Coffee table/storage table

    This is a coffee table I built for my wife a while back. She enjoys crocheting and needed somewhere to store everything, so I built this with 4.5" deep storage and cut grooves on 3 sides for the yarn to pull through (and so our cats and dogs would quit taking off with it while she worked!). All...
  15. Bathroom Accessory

    I build this for our bathroom, yesterday. It all came out of my scrap pile, I love to recycle. We needed a toilet paper holder and this is a two roll holder and adding the magazine slot was my wife's idea and a darn good one at that just goes to show you two heads are better than one when it...
  16. Bench fit for a Cabin

    Well, it's going somewhere but it's not going anywhere…. My SIL asked me to make a bench for my BIL; stating that he has always wanted one for their mountain cabin in New Mexico. She knew I dabbled in woodworking and trusted me enough to come up with something after showing me a couple ideas...
  17. A kit box for the hand made drill

    In my previous project post [link] I made a hand drill ala Izzy Swan to use at work when I need to drill a hole in new tuning pegs. This time I made a little kit box to hold the drill and some extra drills plus a few screwdriver bits. I don't expect to need this very often, so keeping it in a...

    I detailed the construction of this kitchen cabinet extensively in my blog However, I never posted it as a project. Materials: Faceframe, doors, and drawers: Recycled Douglas Fir resawn from old house beams Carcasse: Vertical Grain Fir Plywood. Brass hardware and all Slotted Screws...
  19. What shopping center missed out on this bench?

    I decided to build this 5' Better Furniture bench for my inventory. I used left over sheet metal, painted black and believe it or not recycled palette wood for the top. It is a mixture of 1" thick ash and oak. This is now a one of a kind FSC certified bench for sale exclusively @...
  20. Wood Shop Cart recycled, Project #1

    A year ago I built a large A frame wood cart for my garage shop. It just took up too much room, so I totally dismantled it last week and put all my lumber on the wall on brackets. I had a bunch of 3/4 baltic birch plywood from the cart, so I decided to do two projects. This is #1, a rolling...
