  1. Deluxe Boat Bed | Pirate theme| Custom

    This is a boat bed that I just finished up. It was completed in January 2017. I finished it out in our standard Navy finish with a red pinstripe. All the wood is Pine wood with a Red Mahogany finish Minwax. We did a lot of extra feature on this one. One being the Gallery Rail on the headboard...
  2. Cat dog Beds

    After cutting out the pieces, cutting out the paw print in the headboard, sanding and assembly I burn the beds with my torch to make the grain stand out in the finished product. Next the they are stained in red mahogany After drying they are sealed with indoor outdoor poly for protection and...
  3. Different use for discarded silverware cases

    I just had tons of fun rebuilding this old silverware box that I bought at Goodwill for $3.99 plus tax. The outside of the box is finished with a dark red mahogany oil. I gutted the inside and put in a false bottom to hold the chisels. My dividers and calipers live under the chisels. I simply...
  4. Dry Erase Board | Custom

    This is a pair of dry erase boards that we built to match some of the other RSG Projects. We took an existing dry erase board and just made a matching frame. We cut a dado deep enough to cover the existing metal frame and reattached the pin tray on the bottom. For more building pictures see...
  5. 3 beds, 2 weeks

    Around the middle of July, the wife came to me and said she wanted to get some new beds for the boys. After looking for a while, she found a set that she liked. Then deciding she didn't feel like spending the money on something I could build for less, she asked if I could make them. The only...
  6. Hall Table

    I made this table for my wife, it is made from Red Oak, Poplar drawer sides, and Red Mahogany inlay. First time I have done any inlay work and I must say, I am very pleased with the way it came out and wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. I thought about using walnut for the inlay, but...
  7. Captain's Bed with Trundle and Drawers | Custom

    This is a Captains bed that I built in January 2015 using Pine wood. The head board and foot board are made similar to each other. I cut a dado for the 1/4" bead board to slide into. The seams are reinforced with a mortise and tenon type joint. The drawer unit is only on one side and has 3...
  8. Luke 5:4

    Yet even more adventures for me in letter-carving. The Minwax red mahogany stain is really what made this project pop. In the process of slicing the delicate letters (in pine, of all woods), I became unsure of the outcome and if the final look was really going to be worth all the effort. But...
  9. Alder Quilt Rack

    So I built this quilt rack out of 8/4 alder. It was based off of the quilt ladder idea but I added a base so it could stand on its own. Its 48" tall and has 26" clear width for quilts. The rungs have wedged tenon joinery that locks the whole thing together. I stained it a dark mahogany and left...
  10. Conference Table | RSG | Custom

    This is a conference table that was built in May 2012. It is made in the same style as the one I built for the same customer in June 2008. I doubled up 3/4" maple plywood for the top, tapered the sides, and edge banded the edges. The base is a 1 1/2" thick raised panel connected by a...
  11. LEGO table

    My 2 boys, ages 5 & 8, love their LEGO's, just like I did when I was a boy. The problem I had was finding a way to store all of the LEGO's while keeping them readily accessible. Also, we have a lot of LEGO's, so I needed something pretty large. At first, I made a simple table (photo 1) from...
  12. Finishing
    I have several boxes where the wood is dark in nature and has shown through the flocking. Since these are girly boxes, the flocking needs to be a girly color - pink. So I ordered a light pink and applied the flocking "glue/paint." to the boxes. I may have coated it too lightly with the glue...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    What's the best clamp for an affordable and reliable 90 degree joint? I've been looking at the Bessey clamps, kreg as well as the woodpeckers. I can find reviews of people who love and hate all of them? I have some of the light weight ones which have two adjusters, but they don't seem to stay...
  14. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hello, I am new to Lumberjocks. This is my first post. I recently saw a photo of a wooden egg holder (http://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/wood-egg-crate.jpg) and I would like to make this for my mom for this mothers day. I know I am early!!!! She loves her chickens I would love...
