  6. Dovetailed Picture Box

    I had an alder board with a big knot in it I've been saving to use for something like a box lid. So this box was designed around from that one piece. The rest of it I kept fairly simple thinking it'd be a good balance to the figured grain around the knot. I sized the box just big enough to...
  7. My First Box

    Whew! What a learning curve. The project was modelled off of a video series done by FWW. I made it as a thank you to a friend who helped me land a new job. Therefore, I made sure it was big enough for a bottle of booze, which wasn't as easy as I thought as it got smaller and smaller each time...

  11. Another Box for Dad

    I made another box for dad. This one is out of maple, with cherry for the splines and red oak plywood for the top and bottom. Keeping with my idea of trying something new with each project, I had a few firsts this time. First time using my dado stack. I have the Dewalt 8" set, which is great...
  12. Restored Pembroke drop-leaf Table

    This is a mid-1900's Pembroke table. It has a leather top. My shop cat had to get in the picture. It was really rough when I got it from my neighbor.

  14. Bat Car - Toy Car - Batmobile - Play Pal

    This little car is a lot smaller than the ones I posted previously. Only 3.5 inches long. I've made quite a few of these and this one is by far the best looking one. I made it from some spruce I had from a very old project. I'm not saying how long I've had this wood. It smells like Christmas...

  16. Restored Tilt Top Table

    Restored tilt top table for a friend. All three legs had to reattached, which led to some creative clamping (second picture). There were also many bits that had simply broken off over time. Each of the three tripod legs had snapped off at some point in the life of this table, and blocks had to...

  19. Sofa Table with Granite Insert
