  1. The One That Matters

    Through the years, I have made several of these for various friends and relatives. Up until this point, they have all been nothing more than wood, glue, and some glass. This one was different. January 8, 2010 my Grand-Father passed away at 89 years of age. During WW II he was a Radio...
  2. Quartersawn Red Oak Entertainment Center

    This is my attempt to build an entertainment center, by far the largest size project I've attempted (which is probably why it took most of this year for me to build). I really like Greene and Greene furniture, so I used that style as the inspiration for this project. The face frame and drawers...
  3. Locker shelves for miniature NFL jerseys and helmets

    For my first LumberJocks project, I thought I'd show off my most recent completed project (at least, my most recent complete project that wasn't built for my shop!). It's also the first project I was ever paid for. Were they ripped off? You be the judge! My cousin's wife asked me for a set of...
  4. 1901 Coaster Wagon

    Hi LJ's, I completed this project for a friend of mine. It is from the Roudebush Company. (www.woodkitsandplans.com) This is my first "kit" project and I had a blast making it. The instructions that come with the wagon are a bit vague but are complete. I didn't care for the use of "T" nuts...
  5. handles, an ongoing experiment

    I've been experimenting with different handles designs for screw drivers and chisels. This one is octagonal, 1.5" across flats. I turned the ends on the lathe and pressed a 1" OD steel tube section on the end. Sanding residue from the steel collar lodged in the open pores of the red oak. I...
  6. Fundraiser Item: Soap dishes

    These are the last of the fundraiser items I made for the fundraiser we held for my wife last night, who is walking in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure, 60-mile walk in San Diego this November 19th. Her story about why she is participating in the walk is here...
  7. Dresser, chest on chest

    This is a chest on chest dresser from Woodsmith vol 21 / No 125. I built this 17 years ago and it's held up well. Wood on wood slides. Machine cut dovetails. It's 60.5" tall. Red oak with a Minwax stain.
  8. Computer armoire

    My wife was looking at a computer armoire in a magazine and asked if I could make it. I did the best I could and for my first big project I must say I think I did OK. It is Oak plywood case with red oak trim on all the exposed edges and solid oak doors. Finish is all hand rubbed with 4 coats of...
  9. New Life for an Old Dresser

    My Fiance asked me to transform with dresser into something she saw on pinterest. I believe it is from the late 70s to early 80s during the mass production of this style oak dressers. Figuring out the bracing support for the seat was the hardest part for me. Sanding off the old varnish took the...
  10. Japanese Wari Kebiki (Splitting Gauge)

    If you prefer not to read, the video is here View on YouTube So for those who don't know, a Wari Kebiki is simply a different form of the Japanese marking gauge (sometimes referred to as a Suji Kebiki). The standard marking gauge as the name implies is designed to mark/score the wood in a...
  11. Core Sample display boxes

    My father requested I make these for his mining company so they are able to display the core samples from his mining companies latest property. They are constructed out of Red Oak and the corners are joined using a box joint to resemble the old dynamite boxes. The hardest part of the project was...
  12. Fish Tank stand

    Back in September the boss lady bought a fish tank and of course I said you need a stand for it which I can build. I finally finished it in April. Thank goodness she is a patient woman. The inlay and drawer pull is purple heart which she just loves. The fun part with this table is it is made...
  13. Lockable red oak electric guitar storage cabinet for church youth center

    This is an electric guitar oak storage case for the new Baptist Church Youth Center in Fairbury. This is the biggest cabinet I have ever built. It is red oak, lockable, and will hold up to 6 electric guitars. One of my buddies twisted my arm into doing this project :) Since I have never built...
  14. Corner Table

    Last year my parents got a pair of new arm chairs, but they way they had them positioned with one another and against the wall, left an awkward triangle shaped gap between them. They picked up a cheap particle board table that really didn't fit from Kmart and hinted maybe I'd someday make...
  15. Unconventional Bible Box

    I call it "Unconventional" because it breaks from a traditional or reproduction type of piece in the use of dovetail joinery, brass hardware, and a sliding inner till. I finished this piece in August of 2011, If you want to see or read more about it all of my blog posts have been collected...
  16. Oak Dog Feed Stand

    So I finally finished the second dog feed stand that I made for my mother who is donating it to a auction with the proceeds to benefit a Mastiff Rescue organization. This is the second of two feed stands, the first was made of a different mix of woods whereas this one is made from plainsawn red...
  17. Segmented Zig-Zag Vase

    I did one more segmented vase to work on form and feature rings. This is my first completed piece with the zig-zag ring. The zig-zag is fun to do. Hopefully in time and practice I can get better at them. The vase is red oak and walnut, 5" tall, 3.5" major diameter, 2.25 base diameter, 145...
  18. Double bathroom sink (his and hers vanity)

    I made this double sink for the master bathroom of a friends house. He wanted it to look like a piece of furniture, he and his wife were both pleased with the product. It's in the same home as my previously mentioned medicine cabinet.
