  1. Pound-a-Peg Toy

    I built two of these children's toys recently. One is for my son, who turns one today. The other will be a gift for whomever. Its easy to build more than one when you're in the mode. You simply pound the pegs down, then flip the bench over and pound them back the other way. I remember using this...
  2. KA-BAR Display

    This morning I finally got around to making a display for my wedding gift from my best friend, Todd. The knife was too nice to put aside somwhere so I made this little stand for my office. Never messed with sliding dovetails, not perfect but they'll do just fine. I think they add a little...
  3. Mesquite Hall Table

    Other than folding stepstools, this is my first real furniture project. It is built out of South Texas mesquite. The top is out of a 13 inch wide 4/4 slab. It's hard to find a mesquite board that wide without major voids and cracks. I actually have enough left of the slab for a pair of matching...
  4. TV Console

    This was inspired by this= piece. However, it is for our bedroom and we have a high mattress and box spring so I had to make it taller so the remote would be able to "see" the cable box and the DVD player. Hence 4 drawers instead of just 2. It measures 48"w x 36.5"h x 18"d. The finish is...
  5. Bathroom shelves with sliding dovetails

    I needed a set of shelves in my bathroom to hold my shaving equipment, so I decided to build a set out of western maple. This was my first attempt at sliding dovetails, which I mostly just wanted to use for the visual effect with the contrasting wood colors. I cut the joints with a 5/8"...
  6. What Started it All!

    Woodworking has interested me for sometime now and I happen to work with a very good woodworker (RKW). I needed a place to keep my logo golf balls and didn't really like the ones I found on-line and in local stores, so what better way to get started in woodworking! I didn't have any tools to...
  7. I'm just a Trainee

    I have been working on this for a little while now, it was a small request from the great grandson. It is 22" long 6 1/2" wide and 10 1/2" tall and strong enough for a small child to sit on the cab. The number is his dad's banger racing number and it is called Toby the Tank engine as he wanted...
  8. Shaker chest of drawers in soft maple for my son

    Well this was my first shot at a shaker inspired dresser and at hand cut joinery. I wanted to make something that was a tribute to woodworking in the mid 1800s. I think it's close but with some modern touches. The carcass and drawer fronts are made from soft maple (some figured/curly) and the...
  9. Shaker/Miles125 Inspired Shelves

    When I saw the wonderful boxes Miles125 made as Christmas gifts that were contructed of walnut and heart pine, I knew I had to give that combination a whirl. So, here's what I came up with. I think the walnut and pine compliment each other wonderfully. This is a slight variation on the shaker...
  10. Sliding Dovetail Wine Rack

    A square sliding dovetail wine rack. Made of home center 1x pine. The shelves are adjustable in the dovetails and fit anywhere in the unit. Shelves are just big enough for a bottle of wine and have a front lip so they don't roll of. The base unit has a false lip all the way around making it...
  11. Art Deco TV Table

    Finally! A project isn't really done until it is posted on LJ's, is it? Needless to say this was a very challenging project, at least for me. It seems like every part had to be built or rebuilt, finished and refinished a number of times before getting it right. And I had to 'invent' or at...
  12. Tripod Table

    Tripod table. Made from Mahogany, finished with shellac and wax. See more work at my website and my blog.
  13. Custom Maple Dresser

    This custom maple dresser was a commissioned piece for a customer in Lousiville, Kentucky. Hard maple carcass features sliding dovetail horizontals and verticals and splayed legs. Drawers are cock beaded and veneered with superb quality veneer from Berkshire Veneer. Hardware is clear glass pulls...
  14. Cherry Knick-Knack Shelf

    I made this shelf for my mother for Christmas. I picked it since it gave me a chance to try making sliding dovetails and my own trim. It is made of Cherry and has a light coat of Sedona Red stain with a couple of light coats of lacquer. Amazingly it all went quickly and without any problems...
  15. Shaker Sideboard

    I wanted a sideboard to go against a bare wall near my kitchen. I was looking for something unadorned that I could put some handtools on. I consolidated a few designs from all my Shaker books and fit the dimensions while keeping the proportions. I started out with some local cherry that had...
  16. Joinery
    Just another way of doing it... if you choose to try it… Instructables - Hand Cut Dovetails with a Hacksaw. I thought it was interesting… I don't think I will ever do this… BUT, if all other methods are not available at the time, I might try it. :)
  17. Woodworking Skill Share
    I've read the forums here and there for insights on various projects but this will be my first post looking for help. I apologize in advance if I am posting this in the wrong sections. I consider myself a novice woodworker with a very modest set of tools and I am trying to cut a perfect circle...
  18. Blogs
    general assembly My Craftsman 13" planer is a real beast to move around in the shop. It's very heavy, and really bulky. As such, it's just always either in the way when I don't need it, or really hard to get to when I do, having collected many items from other projects on and around it since...
