  1. Miniature Desk Bookcase with Secret Drawers

    Four years ago, I had aspirations to make a period furniture piece. But, being a rookie woodworker, I was not sure if I had the skill set. This piece was a good transition piece to see if I was up to the test. The piece is 1/2.54 scale. It serves as a jewelry box (or a place to store nuts and...
  2. Tacticab - A Tactical Cabinet

    After getting into Airsoft (military simulation tactical sport using realistic replicas - look it up) and getting geared up I soon realized I will need a proper cabinet to organize and keep everything in a central and convenient location. I wanted a gun-rack of sorts, but also wanted drawers and...
  3. Secretary Desk

    The sister asked for a secretary desk to match her bedroom furniture. Currently, she uses a card table to do all her banking and she wanted a work space that she could close up and hide the mess. She gave me some rough dimensions and left the design up to me. It is made from cherry and cherry...
  4. Refinished Secretary Desk (old Project)

    This project is likely one of the ones that started me on the woodworking journey. We wanted to have a small secretary desk in our little front hall, something that had a small footprint and a small flat surface so that it wouldn't become a catch all. I had in mind that I would build one and...
  5. Old Secretary/Desk

    It's not quite done, but I don't know when I might have the time to finish it. I've got to fill a few nail holes and touch-ups before the finish coat of poly. It's an old secretary/desk that was bought by my brother at an estate sale. It used to belong to a friend of my wife. It was in disrepair...

  7. Chippendale Secretary Desk and Bookcase

    This secretary was my senior project. Built in 2002, it was a culmination of 10 years for me as a 4-H woodworking member. Each year I built a woodworking project and competed with my peers at the county fair. When you win at the county level you can then go on to compete at the state level...
  8. Slant Top Secretary Desk Flea Market Flip

    Found this nice little slant top secretary desk at a local flea market. Paid $30 dollars for it and took a gamble that the wood underneath would be nice. After tearing the entire desk apart and stripping about 3 or four different colors I was pleasantly surprised how nice the wood still was...
