  1. Router Sled

    This is the router sled I made this weekend t to plane a wood slab I had. Going to make a patio table from the slab.
  2. Jewelry racks, primitive and rustic

    I get quite a few requests for custom jewelry racks for people who sell jewelry at vendor shows. But some of my racks get used at home too. (Remember these David? LOL) I use cut nails - predrill then pound in the nails. The paint job is my own prim finish. Layer the paint, sand to distress...
  3. Redwood Slab Chair

    This is a Redwood Slab Chair from an 80 foot redwood tree we took down a year ago. I blogged about cutting and milling the wood here last spring. This is the first project I have used with the wood, but when we get back to Napa (NEXT WEEK WE MOVE HOME!!!) I will begin using the longer slabs...
  4. Soup Table

    This was a quick and simple project made out of recycled woods. The top is a slice of I think black poplar from a tree that was being trimmed. It's 17" across and maybe 2" thick. The skirt was made from a discarded piece of door casing. The oak legs were cut from old shipping pallet wood, as...
  5. Rustic Entry Bench

    This is a rustic entry bench I built for my Dad's 68th birthday in a couple weeks. It will go great with the style of his home. It is made from a single slab of birch that had been air drying since 1968. The insects got to it during this time so there are a lot of worm holes in it. The legs...
  6. Make a slab table

    I owned a timber furniture business for many years using timber slabs up to 4 inches thick to make very solid tables and benches, mainly for public use. However I also had lots of customers wanted dining tables made out of timber slabs. Not being a trained wood worker I used to love preparing...
  7. Walnut Slab Table

    This is a walnut slab table that I built last fall. I rushed it trying to get it finished before I had surgery and laid up for 6 months and I am regretting it a little now. It is beautiful and it is functional but there is some wave in it that you can see in the first picture on one end and in...
  8. Live edge slab counter.

    Just finished doing a live edge counter top. We did this as a full custom from cutting down the tree to milling it to finishing it in the area it is to be installed in. The tree had been standing dead for 2 years and came out at 6 percent moisture when it came off the sawmill. All cracks and...
  9. Butternut slab with epoxy dye

    Here's another butternut slab bench I worked on. Originally I had put keys in it because of a couple cracks, then I was going to just fill a center "stream" with dyed epoxy. The more I tried to do, the more rot I found and then had to expand the pour and more. I poured way more epoxy (west...
  10. Slab top table

    Just finished this table, made from wood liberated from my friends burn pile. It's pine with mahogany for the bowties and tenon pins. The stain is steel wool and vinegar. Any filler is wood glue, sawdust and coffee. The check in the top is filled with epoxy mixed with coffee. The spanner is a...
  11. Ash Slab Coffee Table

    This was my first log I took to the saw mill and had cut for myself. It was a fun project trying to work the crotch grain that changes direction every other inch. Split is keyed with english walnut and filled with black resin. Trying to develop my own style, square tapered legs with round...
  12. grain hauler

    I built this for a costumer that will give it to her husband for Christmas. built out of cherry. maple, walnut , and oak.
  13. Bench #1

    First of several benches I'm making for the elm table I just finished (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/78137). The bench is elm; but there is an interesting contrast between the wood slab for the top and the legs. The top is much darker wood compared to the legs which took on an ugly yellowish...
  14. Glowing River Redwood Slab Coffee Table

    I just finished and delivered this coffee table this morning. I built it for my school's annual fundraiser dinner and auction. I teach 7th/8th grade Language Arts at a great little charter middle school called River Middle School (Thus the river in the table). The last couple years they have...
  15. Chunky Slab-Lid Boxes

    These were the second pair of boxes I have made this year (at least before the snow fell). They are made of walnut with bird's eye maple slab lids. The keys are actually dovetail keys made with some leftover bird's-eye maple. Once again, my joinery is improving but getting better. Finished in...
  16. Turned stuff, I love turning on the lathe.

    This is my first post, here is some of my amateur woodturning. 1st pic - bowl made of arizona alligator juniper, turns like red cedar maybe a little softer. 2nd pic - bowl made of gambel oak, very hard and dense, dang that torn end grain, gotta go much slower next time. 3rd pic - cookie jar...
