    Completed on 09-10-2007, this is an end table designed to be multi-functional. It can be used to hold books, stereo, television, VCR or anything else. One of the pair built is pictured here. The customer will use it to hold stereo components. It will be placed on either side of their...
  2. Mission Table Lamp Small

    This mission lamp is the smallest and last of the three piece lamp sets I built. This lamp also was built entirely out of scrap red oak left over from other projects. There are two pictures showing the various parts and jigs I built. Now that I have those built and have made a few of them I can...
  3. Barn Door Baby Gate For A Dog Sitter

    A customer of mine watches dogs of all sizes. During feeding time she needed to separate them as well as keep them out the kitchen when cooking. She found a picture online she liked and asked me to re-create it. Made from 1x pine. Some tool and saw marks left in, others added. Distressed with...
  4. Pine Pantry

    My neighbour contacted me to build a pantry for his wife, that would occupy the space where they had a refrigerator that was replaced by a bigger one. I took this as the opportunity to explore the wonderful world of kitchen cabinetry, but I had to basically duplicate the design of the overall...
  5. Craftsman Headboard

    I made this for us out of quartersawn white oak. I finished it with TransTint Reddish Brown in alcohol so there would be no raising of the grain between the spindles. Ingenious design to moun the spindles inside of a box joint strip. Looks like an instant antique. I'm making a dresser to go...

    How do I delete?
  7. Curly Maply knife scale, epoxy, and Vingear Chemical Stain

    This one has a kind of fun way to chemicaly stain the wood :) Video: Depending on the Tannin content the wood can either grey out, or turn totally black (oak), or not do a whole lot at all. Fun to play with :) The stain in apple cider vinegar (1 jar) to a couple ultra fine steel wool pads...
  8. Greenwood candle stick holder

    Made this out of some random green wood I found. Sealed it with a golden oak stain. I dried it in the microwave, multiple 30 second intervals. It worked out pretty well.
  9. I posted these before, but thought they were worth another look

    My first project on the scrowl saw and nearly first on a lathe. The Virgin Mary and Baby Jesus and a drinking mug.
  10. New Life for an Old Dresser

    My Fiance asked me to transform with dresser into something she saw on pinterest. I believe it is from the late 70s to early 80s during the mass production of this style oak dressers. Figuring out the bracing support for the seat was the hardest part for me. Sanding off the old varnish took the...
  11. Abomination Dresser

    UGLY! unfortunately made of second hand particle board for the sides (explaining the paint/paper mache); made of oak and whitewood board for the drawers. everything was pretty much second hand now that i think about it. if you appreciate woodworking you may find this quite distasteful.. ABOMINABLE!
  12. New Mission Style Murphy Bed | Custom

    This is a new design for my murphy bed. I started with my Templeton and changed it to more of a mission style. I took the arch off the front and made them straight across. I then added mission style crown and base molding. The stain finish gave me a little problems. I usually send out a...
  13. Cat dog Beds

    After cutting out the pieces, cutting out the paw print in the headboard, sanding and assembly I burn the beds with my torch to make the grain stand out in the finished product. Next the they are stained in red mahogany After drying they are sealed with indoor outdoor poly for protection and...
  14. Reporter's Notebook

    This is a reporter's flip-top notepad made out of poplar for a friend's birthday present. The pencil, hand-planed to the correct shape, features four hidden nails that reinforce the front and back covers. The writing and lines are wood-burned on. Working with poplar was an interesting...
  15. Industrial Hardware Shelves "Stop Motion" Build

    Hi Lumberjocks! The first woodworking project I ever took on was building a set of my own industrial hardware shelves for my apartment. A website called Restoration Hardware sold very similar shelves for $300. That's right. $300! I did my homework and realized I could build a very similar set...
  16. Machinist Tool Chest, From Woodsmith Issue 183

    The plan for this wooden tool chest was featured in Woodsmith magazine, issue 183 . The hardware including the handle and felt came from one online source.
  17. Padauk Mantel

    Made this mantel recently and was pleased in how it came out. Nothing ornate,just like the color of padauk and thought it would age well in color over time. Got ambitious and decided to tile the fire place over the brick that we were tired of looking at. Let me know what you all think. Criticism...
  18. Workbench - Holtzapffel?

    This workbench is a hodge-podge of several designs I've seen out there over the last few years. Once I put the twin screw face vice on it will most closely look like a Holtzapffel. It's 80 inches long, about 35 inches tall, 30 inches deep. I'm inherently cheap and hate making newbie mistakes...
