  1. Oak Beam Mantel

    For our new house I wanted to add a little bit of a personal touch. I found an old oak beam in one of the lofts of a barn on my wife's family farm and decided that it would make the perfect accent to the fireplace I was installing. After power washing and removing all the dirt, dust and grime of...

  3. RS Barnwood case with beaded frame

    My brother-in-law was replacing 100+ year old barn wood siding from his dairy farm in Belleville PA and I wanted to make something out of it for each of his children as a memento from their Homeplace. I used the old cut nails as decorative plugs to hide the trim screws. I learned the hard way...
  4. Logs into Lumber - Spalted Box Elder

    This project is finished for a while, at least. I stumbled across some spalted box elder firewood on a craigslist ad, and instead of splitting it for the firepit I just had to saw it up into slabs to make something out of it. I had honestly never seen a tree with red spalting before, so this...

    This is a large log cabin birdfeeder I built to scale (1"=1'). The cabin measures 2' x 4' with a 1' wrap around covered porch which makes the overall dimensions 4' x 6'. The feeder is mounted aprox. 6' off the ground on a real cherry tree base I had to cut due to disease. As you can see by the...
  6. New Gazebo shed door!

    Before winter sets in I decided to make a new shed door. The old door has seen its better days, 25 years. They don't build things like they used to. LOL I can only blame myself though. I applied 3 coats of Boiled Linseed Oil to see how it withstands the elements...

  9. Built-In Cabinet with Counter, Drawers & Bookshelves

    I recently completed a built-in bookcase and cabinet project that I've been working on over the last couple of weeks and I'm so happy with the way it came out. It has a base with nine drawers, a counter I built out of rough sawn maple and a section of bookcases on the top. I built the entire...
  10. Walnut and Birds-Eye Maple Chess Table

    This is the first chess table I have attempted and I was very nervous going into it. This is 90% solid hardwood and 10% veneer, bendable plywood and Walnut ply. For the table sides, I used the bendable plywood covered with a Walnut veneer. My neighbour has a veneer vacuum press set up so I...
  11. Barn Door Farm Table

    This table is made from solid rough-sawn white oak. The top is tong and groove joined to resemble an antique barn door. Prior to staining It was hand-planed, wire brushed and scraped to create a worn texture. The top is a brown color and the base is almost black for contrast. In the top you can...
  12. Treble Clef Carving

    I made this as a way to practice carving with a Dremel that I got for christmas. I used some reclaimed red oak that I took from a local house that was demolished. I was pleased with how the carvings came out with the rough sawn look.
  13. my first box

    Here's the first box I ever made…and it's almost square! It's made from a piece of scrap a local woodworker had laying in his shop for 25+ years (his estimation). It was a piece of rough sawn yellow pine. I liked the texture so much that I decided to go with it. I even cut small edge band...
  14. Another Wine Bar

    This wine bar is made from rough sawn, cut off ends from a friends saw mill. The top and both sides are book page pieces. Once again most all of this lumber would have ended up in the wood stove if I didn't take it. All joints are dato and dowels, the feet are door knobs again. The only thing...
  15. A Rustic Corner Cupboard

    My wife decided what she wanted to do with an oak door we bought some time ago at a flea market. She wanted a rustic corner cupboard to hold some crocks. The side trim is a few pieces of hand hewn beam I resawed a while ago. Basically I was just playing with the saw mill at the time. No...

It's made with all mortise and tenon joints and hand cut dovetails on drawers. I did mix clear wood with stained wood to try a new effect. I gave this to my...
  18. Wood & Lumber
    So, I was talking to a tree guy and told him I was into making furniture. He then told me he had a bunch of trees milled about 5 years and he wanted to get rid of it. He showed me the pile and said to give him $500 and take it all. There's maple, some cherry, butternut, a few oak boards and...
  19. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Greetings brother LJs. I recently saw an item that I instantly wanted to make one of for myself from the projects section here. I contacted the individual that made it to see if he'd share the pattern, but he no longer has it. He steered me to Wood Magazine, the source he got it from, but it...
  20. Wood & Lumber
    Hey lumberjocks! I found some many year old threads here where people have asked about pricing and it seems to have gone up from a few sources I've been able to verify. Anyways, I'm looking for a place that can sell me rough sawn American black walnut in mostly 4/4 FAS in Southern California...
