  1. Arts & Crafts Poster Frame

    We went to the Port Townsend, WA Wooden Boat Festival last year for my birthday. My girlfriend bought this poster with the understanding that I'd make a frame for it. I finally got around to it. Here's what I came up with, thanks to Dan's inspiration. I chickened out on the fancy scrollwork...
  2. Quartersawn White Oak Extension Table

    This is a quartersawn white oak extension table. When closed, it measures 6' 4 1/4". When open, it measures 19' 4 1/4". I have thirteen one foot leaves. The center support is actually two, but when closed, appears to be one, so it actually has four sets of legs. The finish is yellow dye...
  3. Barnwood Island Top

    Built an island top for a customer. She contacted me after I posted a picture of a truckload of circular sawn oak from a barn that was been turn down. The boards were originally about 8 inches wide. I ripped the boards in half because they had a cup in them. I did this to minimize the effect of...
  4. Craftsman Mantel

    So, thanks to Schroeder, I'm back. It's the first major woodworking project since the accident. I can honestly say that turning the table saw back on was an exercise in willpower. Anyhoo, I think it looks pretty good. It's my own design (basically an inverted version of Schroeder's). The finish...
  5. Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table

    Here is my Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts dining table. The design is my own, and it was inspired by the work of Kevin Rodel. The table is 74" long x 42" wide, and features breadboard ends with walnut accents. The visual focus of the table is the twin keyed tenons. One distinctive detail on the...
  6. 1/4 Sawn White Oak table - Rubio finish

    I got hired to build a kitchen table for some people who were referred to me by friends. I met with them and after talking came up with QSWO to match an old church pew they use for seating. I came up with a leg design that would allow them to get in and out from the table without banging knees...

    Just completed this sideboard - a request from my brother-in-law and his wife. Dimensions are 60"W x 36"H x 20"D. Constructed of QSWO, with the interior/back in leftover redwood and barn wood. The drawers are #1 pine. Hardware was purchased from houseofantiquehardware.com. The design is my...
  8. Mission Dining Table , Willie Sandry Designs

    Here is my mission style extension dining table. It expands with two 12" leaves to seat 10 people. The leaves feature hinged aprons, and store inside the table. The aprons fold on continuous hinges that lock at 90 degrees, and are held in place with rare earth magnets. The fixed portion of...
  9. Staircase Rebuild and Refinish

    The staircase in our 100 year old home was rebuilt in the 1940s and changed considerably including painting it. When we beagn stripping the Quarter Sawn White Oak (QSWO), we noticed that about 24 balusters and 2 newel posts had been replaced with a different hardwood - we were really...
  10. Quarter Sawn Black Oak

    This is just one log from a tree I am milling and will get around 2000 bdft of quarter sawn 4/4. It is some real nice material with a light brown color full of tiger stripes. It will take a year for it to air dry before using. I also cut some nice 8/4 live edge slabs for table tops. More...
  11. Quarter Sawn Murphy bed |Euro Style

    This is a Murphy bed in my Euro style, which I usually use maple with cherry accents. On this one the customer wanted me to use quarter sawn oak. This is usually used on mission style furniture, but turned out great on this project. The stright lines of the quarter sawn oak was a great...
  12. 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...
  13. Antelope Console

    I got the vision for this piece in a flash - it then took several months to work out the details…this is one of my favorite pieces and the one I receive comments on the most. I love animals, especially rare exotic species and African antelopes were the original inspiration for this work. The...
  14. Rustic Quarter Sawn Construction Lumber Coffee Table

    Using knowledge gained from the previous build of this same coffee table I used a higher grade of construction lumber. I used the 2X12X12 boards from the BORG. I was very selective to find boards with the tightest grain patterns and most possible quarter sawn sections. I went into much...
  15. Dog Food Stand

    I started this before the accident. It's made out of the scrap wood from the night stand project. I hand cut half of the mortises and was getting frustrated. I vowed to finish it when I got my mortiser. The other half went very quickly. I used this project to learn about chip out. It's not...

    First of all the cart was inspired by Jay's project , the dust collector was from YouTube Above the normal frustrations of a small shop I was tired of tripping over my shop vac and it taking up so much space so I found inspiration from Jays post. Now I just wheel that booger around and its...
  17. Woodworking Skill Share
    Does anyone know a good alternative to fuming with ammonia that will yield a similar result? I am working on an Arts and Craft bookcase out of quarter sawn white oak and I am wanting to finish it to help pull the ray pattern out but I live in an apartment and work in a communal shop, neither of...

    Making Demilune Tables As you may have guessed, I make many of these tables. The practice is needed, and the combinations of woods make it very interesting. These were all made from the plexiglass templates shown. By using these templates, I can make these tops very...

    Test Drive The first installment of this blog is here due to LJ blogging technical issues… To make sure the dimensions are correct for our new table, we decided to do a little test drive. It didn't hurt that we're having eight people over for a Fourth of July BBQ. We ran over to the big box...
