  1. Buffet turned Entertainment Center total Refinish

    3 weeks of sanding, staining, adding poly, and painting to bring this 1930's sideboard back to life!
  2. Swan Spoon O' Silver Birch!

    Hello friends, I thank you kindly for all of your past comments on my Japanese Gift Box project, it is always great to hear from all of you. Thank you! This was a project I toyed with off and on the last 2 months and decided to finish it and share with the group. This was a small spoon that I...
  3. Soda blasted refinishing project

    First things first, sorry for the no before picture, this is a mirror that was given to me by a neighbour some years ago, he had lots of Imperial Oil memorabilia as he worked for them his whole career, he passed some things onto me as he had noticed I liked them. This mirror was sitting in my...
  4. Anniversary Box

    Ok so some of you may have seen my blog about a prototype for this. The nice box is shown here. I made it out of a block of Leopardwood that I picked up at Woodcraft. Since I do not have a bandsaw I used the miter saw to saw off a piece for the lid. I was able to use my drill press with a...
  5. Band saw improvements

    I had been thinking for sometime about acquiring a band saw. Then two weeks ago I agreed to a project which requires a band saw. So I purchased an old Craftsman 12" tilting head saw off of Craigslist. It did not look like it had seen much use, rather suffered from non-use. My "shop" is a two...
  6. Festool Guide Rail Hanger

    I wanted to build something to hold my Festool rail so they don't get damaged or bumped into. I did some looking on Festool's user group (FOG) and found nothing that really meant my design needs. So I came up with this design that fits right between my wood rack and garage door. The basic...
  7. Oak tables

    This project I have to thank Tony for recommending me for customers. They wanted two similar small tables that can be used also as one big table.. legs joinery is kind of dovetail
  8. Finished Refinishing Vanity

    Hello my fellow LJers. In the Texas heat, in a non-air conditioned garage, actual woodworking is more of a winter sport, especially if you are weak like me ;). But refinishing can be accomplished indoors, especially when my LOML says now would be a good time to get this done. I debated...
  9. Heavy with fruit -- 2x4 contest entry

    Here it is, almost 28 hours before the deadline, my entry for the 2×4 contest. This bandsaw box is made entirely form a 2×4 construction grade pine I purchased from HD (2.57$). I hope this project will convince you that pine, despite being a construction material, can legitimately be used to...
  10. Oak Stairs

    "Like gunslingers sizing each other up in a Hollywood western, newly acquanted carpenters always want to know how good the other is. Inevitabley, one poses the defining questiong: 'Can you build stairs?'… Even in a simple home, a staircase is a complex thing…. Along with framing a roof, building...
  11. Refinishing: Dining Room Table

    So this journey taught me a great deal about finishing techniques. I learned my experience in hand-rubbing oils and wax did nothing to prepare me for a smooth coat of polyurethane. I am continually reminded by this project that I am but a newb to the art of finishing. I have also gained a...
  12. Soft Maple Bowl

    This is one of my first bowls. I recently purchased a lathe and have found a new passion. All feedback is welcome.
  13. Me and my big mouth

    As I blogged earlier, I open my big mouth and agreed to do some repair and refinishing work for the Dr who operated on my shoulder this spring. This is probably the most challening peice of the bunch. It is a display case he had in his office where he stored his Hole-in-One golf ball as well as...
  14. Hand Plane swap 2013

    I made this smoothing plane for the plane swap. The iron is bedded at 50° w/ a fantastic Nice Ash iron, thanks Rhett. I used white oak for the body and Morado for the sole, the wedge is lacewood. I also made the adjusting hammer to go with it. This is clearly a Krenov style plane all the...
  15. Antique Desk Refinish

    This is an antique mahogany spinet desk I bought and refinished for my wife. We thought it was really unique, and it makes a great writing desk for her and a place to keep all her envelopes, stationary, etc (and it encourages the writing of letters, a habit we'd like to preserve in this age of...
  16. Solid Red Eucalyptus Box

    Made out of a piece of firewood destined for the fireplace. This was a christmas present for an aunt of mine. This is mainly a bedside jewelry box, but was so heavy it could have been used as a home defense weapon. This wood is VERY dense. I don't have a band saw so I had to square up my...

    A lady brought this desk to me and said she had had it at anther wood workers for three years and he put it out back and you can see the results. Here you can see the before and after I had finished it.
