  1. Scrap patio furniture

    I had some scrap laying around and we needed a place to sit. 2×4 and pine fence planks I was toying with the idea of putting rope around the open area around the bottom. not sure yet. any suggestions?
  2. Not Quite a Sofa Table

    Good Day LJs My first winter project, based on the Sofa Table project in Woodsmith Issue #104. My better half wanted another piece of furniture for our living room (not crowded enough, I guess), so I obliged by making this reduced-width sofa table to fit neatly behind our single-seat easy...
  3. Z Loveseat

    This project was an attempt to copy a historical piece (Selig Z-Chair or Z-Sofa) as close as I reasonably could. A loveseat size wasn't made originally, but its just in-between the other two sizes. I've never seen a real Selig piece in person (but I have seen a fair number of knockoffs), so I...
  4. New Hall/Sofa Table

    Like always I've blogged this table at my other blog. But I found myself with a few days in which I had no teacher and no set project. So I built this table. It is made from Huon Pine ( Don's Favorite timber ) and Peruvian Walnut. Here in Tasmanian the one timber they lack is a true dark...
  5. Sofa Table

    I offered to make a sofa table for a friend of ours, in exchange for a sofa they were going to give away. So here it is. I designed it myself. On a bit of whim, I decided to carve a maple leaf on the front and a fleur-de-lys (we live in Quebec) on each end (also I wanted to experiment a bit)...
  6. Pine sofa and lamp table

    This is for my fellow Minnesota woodworking buddy Dick Cain his lovely wife Barbara. They live in the rustic north woods. How lucky is that? I designed and made these pieces of furniture as prototypes for future pieces I wanted in my mission collection. I figured that pine was inexpensive...
  7. Rustic Sofa Table

    Weathered wood and slate again compose the top. Aspen legs and flowing branches connect this 7 foot long table to the natural environment it sits upon….more slate.
  8. Sofa Tables

    Made four sofa tables. First one is cherry, second is softwood barn boards, third is oak and elm, and the fourth is hardwood barn boards. The softwood barn board table is held together with screws and plugs. The other three are mortise and tenon. The last picture is what the hardwood barn...
  9. Mission Sofa

    Finally finished my sofa. It's a mission style sofa using ash for the frame and walnut for the slats. It is finished with three coats for danish oil. This is the first piece of large furniture that I've made. It was and interesting learning experience.
  10. Mission style sofa table

    This simple mission style sofa table is easy to make yet functional. It is built out of red oak and is 9 inches wide ( the top) by 38 long ( top) and is 32 tall. The legs are 1 3/4 square. the side rails are 3 inches. One slat is used you certainly can adjust to your own tastes and needs...
  11. Rough sawn entry table

    Entry table I made from cut off scrap from a friends saw mill. All this lumber would have ended up in the wood stove if I didn't use it. It's made with all mortise and tenon joints and hand cut dovetails on drawers. I did mix clear wood with stained wood to try a new effect. I gave this to my...
  12. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I'm considering building my own dust collector. I found several parts that I scavenged and one of them is a HVAC furnace blower from a neighbor who replaced their HVAC system. As I understand it, the RPMs are too low to create enough static pressure, so I will have to replace the motor with a...
  13. Finishing
    Two days ago I put a Walnut Watco Oil on a new knotty alder door. Prior to applying the oil I tried a couple of their colors on some scrap pieces of knotty alder trim and found that walnut best matched the existing cabinets and trim. After applying the Walnut Watco Oil to the surface of the...

    Guys-this is a repost of this topic. Started it in the Safety forum, but this is probably the right place to get an answer. Will be starting into spraying with an HVLP unit I recently purchased. In reviewing articles and videos on HVLP, the portable spray booth designs (usually big pieces of...
  15. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hi folks! I'm wondering if a simple sheet of plywood worked for a door outside. I want the most simple/easy-to-do solution for a door for our wine cellar entrance. I have the lock, the hinges and actually a "door" which has raveled/rotted/broke apart being old and it was a bad construction...

    www.sawstop.com Basically a copy of the PCS, except with a 1.75hp motor, so it runs on 120V. Also looks like the dust collecting blade guard, which is standard on the 3hp PCS, is optional. Also looks like the fence that comes standard on the 1.75hp is a slight step down from the T-glide...

    I just went to Adams Hardwoods/Molding in El Paso, just to check it out of course. Well I came home with 200BF of frame grade Alder. Y'all are a bad influence on me, you should be ashamed of yourselves…. ;~)... Now you have to help me. Did I get some descent lumber, regardless of price...

I am simply just not satisfied with the furniture i see in stores. the size is too big, the price is wrong for the materials it's made of, the colors are weird or they...

    My next project is a sofa that will almost look like a built in, but will have a simple box base with mission-style arms. It will be painted. I have a bed of springs from a day bed I'm going to use and then mattress for the bottom sofa bed. What type of wood would you suggest? It will replace...
