  1. Music Theater with curved oak stage

    This was a project that was a wild ride to say the least. The owner already had a show booked before we started. Long days commenced right away. I didn't see my kids awake for almost 2 months. I think during that two months the owner hired and fired five guys that were supposed to be there to...

  3. Stage for My Son

    My wife had a request for a stage that my son and his niece could perform on. She wanted to keep it cheap. I used some pine boards from Lowes. Tried to find the straightest ones possible of the cheaper wood. I originally was going to use 1/2" pine plywood board but given how warped and...
  4. Church Drama Sets

    This was a set I built in Jan. of 2010. It was my first real set that I had built of this caliber. I built all of the structures and the rest was decorated by the great Linda Posada. She used Styrofoam sheets, chicken wire and brown paper sheets. Oh, and lots of paint

    One of my other hobbies is to play bass and lead vocals in a classic rock cover band. Over the years when we look at pictures of the band our drummer Jeff is always hidden from view so I set out to build him a fold up drum riser. The platform itself consists of three pieces of plywood that are...

  9. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm helping a buddy buddy tomorrow to build a seamless wall. We're framing out a 2×4 stage floor with 3/4" ply on top, then on top of that goes a surface of 3/16" hardboard. Adding difficulty is that near the wall we're curving things up along curved plywood ribs (think fins with 90° circles cut...
