  1. Conference Room Table

    [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] For a long time I've thought that our church's library/meeting room needed a proper table. Until now they have made do with two long folding tables, side by side. True they weren't that bad, but I felt a nice table would be worth making. I wanted to try and match...
  2. Biscuit Tables

    I just finished two "biscuit tables" for the family room. Called such, due to all joinery being biscuit joinery. I know… not everyone's favorite, but what I chose. The tables are solid poplar with bread-board tops, and 'mission oak' stain with several coats of lacquer.

  5. Indoor Gate

    My wife raises AKC Toy Pomeranians and likes to keep them in certain areas of the house. She came to me with that one question that manipulates woodworkers, "Can you build me a gate, or should I buy one?" What could I do but accept the challenge. The gate is made out of Old, straight grained...
  6. Entry way Phase 2 ... Almost done

    Its been a while… here was my phase one post. The only things not completed are the cabinet doors, which will match the raised panel drawers, and crown molding. The cabinets are built out of birch and maple plywood with poplar face frames. The coat hanger is cherry to match the bench. We dont...
  7. Kids' Room Signs

    My first foray into signmaking. I thought I'd give something small a try before I do my own New Yankee Workshop version. Made from scrap for the kids of some friends. It was all done with a Dremel until I can get a CNC router up and running. Made out of red oak, one was Classic Oak, the...
  8. Five Board Bench

    This is my first commission! My wife's coworker asked if I would make her a bench. So I did and only charged her for the materials. I experimented with this one since I am still building my skills. I used some premium yellow pine from my local dealer here in town. There was a severe mark on...
  9. Entertainment Center

    This build took a little longer than expected (I am sure no one here has ever said that). It was the first large project I tackled. Everything was built out of 3/4" and 1/2" blondewood plywood and 1×2's. I used pocket holes for all the joinery. The finish is Rustoleum Kona stain with a light...
  10. Bookcase with a secret

    This was a project I've wanted to do for a while. There was access to the space through a closet and it was being used as storage. It's a simple 2'x4' and 5 1/4" deep built in bookcase on two heavy duty hinges. The trim is fixed to the wall and serves two purposes. The first is it covers the...
  11. Locker Murphy Bed w/ Extra bookcase | Custom

    This murphy wall bed built in the style of a locker was completed in April 2011. The customer didn't intend the bookcase to go next to the bed, I just took the pictures that way. They intended them to be placed individually all around the room. For more building pictures see my Current...
  12. Dining Room Cabinets

    My dining room had some unusable space so my wife and I agreed it would be nice to have some cabinets there. We decided on paint grade so that the cabinets would be easy on the eyes but not end up dominating the room. Each cabinet is about 6' wide by 9' tall. The materials are poplar and...
  13. Room Upgrade: My Library/Den

    Here in the Northeast, it was a long and hard winter. I decided to use the inside time to re-design our computer room into a library and den. I gutted the room and removed a piano that merely gathered dust (see before photo). I installed shelves around the entire circumference of the room...
  14. Built-in

    Just finished a built-in in the basement. All started when we were getting tired of the pullout couch. I cut the arms and legs off the couch and re-upholstered it, then built a drawer bank with bookshelf on one side and a desk with cabinet on the other. By re-purposing the couch I was able to...
  15. Hot Tub Room

    My first, and biggest renovation project. I built everything here, including walls, electrical, plumbing etc. It's a VERY cozy spot for those long cold winters.
  16. 10' Birds Eye Maple Dinning Table

    I offered to build a ten foot dinning room table as a house warming present for my brother in law. We used a technique which cut down on the weight considerably. This technique consisted of using a resin coated honeycomb cardboard, which was one inch tall, for the center core of the table. This...
  17. Built in Bookcases

    Some friends asked me to help make their living room complete with a set of custom bookcases. The center design on the fireplace wall had been done by the original owner some 25 years ago and they wanted the new to blend with the old. So knotty pine boards were selected, sanded, and stained...

    Cabinets that I made for my house.
  19. Craftsman sculpture bannister

    A friend had water damage in their home and had to have a room floor rebuilt. She had seen some of my sculpture and asked if I could build a bannister for an eat in kitchen out of quarter-sewn oak to match other furniture in her home. But we wanted to go back in there with not only a bannister...
