  1. Treadle sewing machine repurposed

    My mother was left an old Singer treadle sewing machine table many years ago by my grandma. My daughter always loved it, even in its rough shape, so my mother gave it to her. Of course that means dad has a new project. The top was way beyond repair and my daughter liked the idea of using it as a...
  2. Refurbished redwood burl coffee table

  6. Hand Mirror

    This is a small hand mirror (5" glass) that I made for our daughter for Christmas. It's bead-blasted Brazilian Cherry. The templates were made out of hardboard (round outline) and acrylic sheet (the "M"). Basically cut the outer profile, sand the blank, stick the templates to it, and blast...
