  1. Carved Walking Stick

    I sat on the porch carving this little guy, and I was really pleased with the way it turned out. It took a long while to carve the wrapping design. The whole thing was carved with a bucknife.
  2. Recycled Lumber Table

    This is a table made from recycled lumber I got from a dumpster locally. This table is for a cafe that here in the area, and they wanted the recycled theme to be carried out into the furniture. I ripped pieces with a table saw, positioned them together, ran threaded bolt through the middle, and...
  3. Butcher Block Island

    This was built for a my wife who is a local chef, who is also very into green building, and recycled furniture. She wanted a butcher block out of recyled lumber collected locally for her kitchen. After much dumpster diving, and lots of sorting, I came up with some good pieces to get the job...
  4. Ukelele Case from Recylcled Lumber

    This is ukelele case for a local musican. He plays ukelele professionally, and wanted a very durable case that could stand up to a beating if need be. And he wanted it made out of recycled wood, if possible he requested. So With luck I chose a very weathered piece of 3/4 inch ply and took...
  5. Roubo Workbench (Hand tools Only)

    In my attempt to move over to a hand tool lifestyle, I decided to upgrade my workbench to a Roubo, since they are all the rage. This is Roy Underhill's version. I don't have his book, so I had to redesign it to fit what I remember it as, keeping his basic vision as a base to work off of. I biult...
  6. Scrap Oak Scrub Plane (Hand tools only)

    I am not a plane maker. This was my first venture into the land of plane making. And since I am trying to migrate over to using hand tools only, I made this with only hand tools. I needed a scrub plane that would do what I needed, the one I had before really bit the cheese for some reason. So I...

    I built this Japanese stool for someone, and wanted to use only hand tools. The stool has 12 mortise and tenon joints, and is glued together. The lumber is recyled from an area construction site. The top was shaped using tons of saw kerfs as stop cuts along the top to the desired depth of the...
  8. Scrap Marking Gauges

    Needed new a marking gauge, and a mortise marking gauge, so I set out to build some out of scrap for a job that needed them. Scrap oak was used, and these were made using only hand tools. The screws were just old bolts that I had laying around. I ground a nail to a sharp point before driving it...
  9. Recycled Pallet Campaign Desk

    This desk was made for a client using a recycled pallet from a local construction site. The pallet was made from Austrailian Pine, some type of cedar as far as I can tell. Very beautifully raggy wood textures. The client wanted something with a "campaign twist" on it, so I added the canvas drop...
  10. Recycled Curtain Rod Tripod Stool (Hand Tools Only)

    I found some great things at the county landfill, and among them was a mountain-I mean a literal mountain, of fabulous virgin wood. It was from a pallett off one of the freighters. Also in my inventory collection, were several curtain rods (from the 1960's) per my wife's mother, who had them up...
