  9. A Footstool for Mama

    As you can imagine, Carleen can have just about anything she wants, from the shop that is. So…... Why did she opt for a stool with nothing but straight legs? It has definite Arts and Crafts attributes. The idea came from a stool I made more than 30 years ago. That stool also was made from Red...

    A friend made three froes from leaf springs. In exchange for making three handles, I got one of them. Took a piece of inch-and-a-half square red oak, cut it into roughly 17" pieces, planed them square and then to octagons, then used a spokeshave to taper the ends to fit the froes. Two quick...

  14. My first table

    I made this table about 4 years ago when my second son began to walk. We had a glass and wood coffee table at the time, and were concerned that he would break it, and hurt himself. So I made a small table that I didn't mind if the kids tore it up too bad. Good thing too, the 1 year old...
