  1. Bench for the Conservation Club

    Had some spare 2X4's & 2X6's, so I decided to build a bench for our Conservation Club. Turned out fairly good. It is very comfortable. Put it in the club house and now they want them in all the shooting bays. Going to have to step up to some better wood.
  2. Dining room window storage bench

    I am in the process of building a dining room table that is shorter than the bar height one we bought at sams club years ago. My dining room isn't really big and the space below the window looked like it would be perfect to build in a bench and double as storage for water, paper towels, plates...
  3. White Storage Seat Box

    This is a white storage box I made for one of my neighbors. It is made out of white 3/4 melamine with white band edging. When the seat is the lid and when it is lifted you can see the rails giving the seat support. I originally made it for her to be a toy box but it has been turned into a toy...
  4. Barn Find Oak Stool

    A few weekends ago, my brother and I went to a barn auction and I walked away with a pile of decades old oak boards for $5. Apparently people don't realize the potential of this stuff! One of the boards in the pile was a 10" x 2" foot slab of oak. It had various knots in it and worm holes...
  5. Hall Tree

    A friend asked me to build a hall tree from an old door, but then she couldn't find one she liked. So I build this one from scratch, starting with rough cut maple, and some bead board. She wanted it antiqued… I think I like the way it turned out
  6. Hans Wegner Danish Modern Elbow Chair

    The is a play on the design of the Danish modern chair designer, Hans Wegner. The original includes a padded leather seat but this one I altered the design to include a handwoven rush pattern seat made of danish cord. The back is 1-1/4" thick solid white oak steam bent to a 11-1/8" radius and...
  7. Grandchild's Stool Seat

    With Grandchildren some items are more special when you build them. Oak folding Stool/Seat. This is made with Red Oak with European Walnut Plugs.
  8. Tree Swing Seat

    My kids asked me to make them a swing. It was a very simple project to make. I used some 2×10 construction lumber. The seat measures 16" in diameter and is about 1 1/4" thick. I added some clear tubing to the rope to reduce rope burn. The kids really enjoy it. But isn't that what it's really all...
  9. The throne.

    Just one more posting before I disappear for a week. This originated as part of a church pew removed from a local church during modernisation. It certainly beats the plastic versions for looks and comfort and always elicits a comment when visitors emerge. I'm not sure whether it should have...
  10. Loft Beds, window seats, desk w/drawers

    I was commissioned back on November 7th 2017 to build furniture for a family. I just finished the install yesterday. I built 3 giant oak loft beds, 2 oak window seats, and an oak desk with a 3 drawer bank. Took forever but I have never seen a family as happy as they were! Made all them hours...
  11. Backenzahn Solid Oak Stool

    Considered a design classic, the ST04 Backenzahn has become an identifying icon and part of several permanent exhibitions in museums. With its four identical legs made of solid wood this stool really gives a strong impression. The legs taper downwards with two deliberate incisions. The gaps...
  12. Ipe Shower Bench

    This project is off the Honey-Do list, my wife had requested a shower bench some time ago. About a year and a half ago, I set out to get this done for Valentines Day but it kept getting put off by other projects. It is now finally complete and she is very happy with it (not so happy with the...
  13. A Seat to Remember

    The timber was reclaimed from a fence that I helped removed from a farm near Canberra quite a number of years ago. They were the stringers, which hang along the fence between each post. The purpose is to stop the wires twisting around each other when a cow or sheep hits the fence. There were...
  14. Foot Stool - a/k/a: Kindling Box

    I feel that every personalized project has a story. This is my story for this particular project. Regarding fellow member, "htl", in his High School stool project. He said: "I built this in shop class with all hand tools in JR. High School some time around 1964 or 65" . . . . This is the...
  15. Outdoor bench seat

    After nearly 12 months since building my outdoor table I finally got around to making the first of 4 matching bench seats. All mortise and tenon joints, drawbored with rived dowels, blackbutt timber, teak oil finish. Simple design but meets SHMBO's desogm brief. Cat seems to approve. 3 more...
  16. Pine Adirondack Love Seat

    Here's a Adirondack loveseat i made out of pine. Since i made a single chair before this wasn't so bad, just had to widen it a bit. haha. It's all made of screws and about 11 boards of 6"X1"x6' pine boards at home depot. So not too bad for thirty dollars worth of lumber. I haven't put a finish...
  17. Concord Buggy Restore

    This is a Concord Buggy from the late 1800's. Woodworking involved included replacing one side of the body, several spindles on the seat and the curved uprights that support the seat and alot of scraping and sanding. The owner wishes to paint it on his own
  18. Philadelphia High Back Windsor

    I made this chair as part of the same class as my pal, Fred Dudak, at the Windsor Institute with Michael Dunbar. Fred's chair was more refined than mine when I left-he's got more of the chairmaker knack. But I did a little work on my knuckles and redeemed myself a little! Delicate...
  19. Repair hitchcock chair and weave rush seat

    The rush seat on this chair was about to fall through as you can see in the last picture, so I needed to fix that but when I disassembled it there were loose joints and cracking rails that needed repair too. You can find some good videos that show how to reweave the rush seat. It is slow but...
  20. Shop Stool

    I decided that, considering the amount of time I spend heed scratching in the shed, I should have a descent shop stool to make that as painless as possible! The stool is quite heavy and very stable, it will probably be used as a saw-horse from time to time but it should outlast me! All joints...
