  1. Will Work For Now

    So I know its not finished, but wanted some tips…And thought maybe others would like to get started on one. Its already handy. I'm starting to look for things more often than anything and decided I not only need more storage, but wanted a spot where everything is ALWAYS at my finger tips, so...
  2. first commision piece using Sketchup ... Mission Oak Arts & Crafts Sconce

    First shot using Sketchup to flesh out a project. Plan is to batch six of these, selling the first one for $150 on commission and sell the balance on ebay for whatever the market will bare. Designed the piece loosely based on a Stickley pedestal found in one of my referance books. Size id 9×9x5...
  3. Mission Flip-top Side Table

    I just started woodworking a couple years ago. I've been working on small projects as I collect more tools. This is the first project I've posted. I just finished it up last week. It's by far my most elaborate project and I gained some good experience. I used 4 different joinery techniques...
  4. Huge Hauler - First Sketchup Project

    Until recently, I used to design my projects with SolidWorks. However, a few days ago I gave it a try with Google Sketchup. After a few online tutorials I was able to design this project and to be honest both the design and the manufacturing process were a lot of fun! The kids could not wait to...
  5. Desk Caddy/Monitor Stand

    I don't like looking down at a computer monitor, so I seem to always need to put my monitor on top of something. This desk caddy is all pine, except for the drawer pulls, which are an unidentified wood I had a few scraps of. The board the monitor is sitting on top of swivels, thanks to a 4" lazy...
  6. Utility Storage Cabinets

    No fine woodworking to be found here, just a built in utility storage cabinet. Plywood carcass, face frame, drawer boxes and separate draw fronts. Straight forward and actually, I farmed out the doors, drawer fronts, and three of the drawer boxes. It's hard to photograph this big piece in a...
  7. Hand plane.

    This is a hand plane that I made from part that I purchased from knight-toolworks.com . The sides and are made of red oak, the sole and adjustable throat are made of ipe wood, the wedge is bloodwood, and on the ends they are padouck. Look at the iron it is 1/4" thick! This plane is a true...
  8. Barnwood Change box

    I made this box about 10 years ago. How time flies. I was cleaning out my parents barn loft and came across lots of old lumber. I knew there was something I could make with it. The idea was to make this box to keep change in and when I filled it up, cash in the change and have a big payday...
  9. Battle shots

    A few months ago my brother approached me to build him a drinking game for an upcoming Jack and Jill party we were attending. While it wasn't the most elegant build, it gave me an opportunity to get used to my craftsman contractor saw, and the work flow of my new basement shop. Others on this...
  10. Basic Bed Frame and Headboard

    Over the past couple of weeks I've been working on a new queen size bed for my daughter (see the blog for the details). She found the design on a DIY site. The original version was made from 1×6 pine which just didn't seem sturdy enough to make a bed frame. I made a SketchUp model for her to...

  12. Smithsonian Murphy Bed and Two Desk | Custom

    This was part of a group that was designed for a small room. It had the Murphy bed with a built in folding desk, a corner desk, a corner bookcase, and a TV stand. I'm going to focus on the Murphy bed and corner desk combination today. The design process took longer then expected. We had some...
  13. Convertible Crib (Oak, modified from Wood Magazine)

    Here's yet another crib that leveraged the plans from Wood Magazine's 3-in-1 crib plans. This crib was made for our 7th grandchild, my youngest daughter's first! (A crib I had made in 2008 is still being used!) All the oak for the crib had been harvested previously (and air-dried for years)...
  14. Walk in Closet Design-Sketchup/Podium Renders

    A friend of mine recently remodeled an in-law apartment above his house into a master bedroom suite. Part of the plan was to turn the former bedroom into a walk in closet. He got a bunch of quotes from some closet companies, and after looking at those he asked me if I could come up with a couple...
  15. Box for Grandma

    I made this box out of 3/4 red oak for my grandmother. This was my first box and my first inlay. I just started woodworking this year and I am learning a lot with every project. I would like to take a few classes but need to save up in order to take them (I've been spending all my money on new...
  16. Bowl

    Just some junk walnut from the wood pile. Green it was. Still have a half a truck load. Hope you like it.
  17. Stickley Mirror 66 Reproduction

    This was a Christmas present for my wife. I knocked the joinery and shaping out in a day, the rabbeting and mirror install in another, and then procrastinated on the finish. I finally ended up dying the piece with water based dye, but too dark. I followed this with shellac, dark brown glaze...

  19. Memorial Flag Case Plans

    Here is a project I put aside to do the virtual table challenge so I picked it back up and finished the planning stage. This is for my mother in law who passed a few years ago and was a WAC in WW2. This version has finger jointed corners and is made of cherry. I am now thinking I might go with...
