  1. Library Desk

    I completed this piece one week before Christmas 2016. It's a present for my boys (8yrs and 7yrs). They have been in need of a desk to do their homework on. Materials: I used cherry for the primary wood and poplar and red oak for the secondary wood. The legs were laminated using 8/4 cherry...
  2. Mahogany, Walnut and Zebrawood Coffee Table

    Just finished this coffee table. This is my first furniture project entirely of my own design. Woods are genuine mahogany, black walnut (from Missouri, I'm told), and zebrawood veneer for the inlay. The mahogany top uses two 11" wide boards with a little figure in them, which may come through a...

    Here is a Hall Table I recently made out of Pennsylvania Cherry. Tapered legs, floating drawer, half-blind dovetails, continuous grain and beveled top. Finished with 3coates of Tried and True Danish oil and light brown wax.

  5. Shaker Night Stands

    Completed June 1991. This pair of Shaker night stands fit perfectly with our pencil post bed. Drawer sides and frames are made of poplar and the rest is cherry. Notice the routed profile on the top inside edge of the drawer front. This small touch adds greatly to the looks of the drawer when...
  6. Couple of Cherry Bed Tables

    These are a couple of simple end tables custom made for my daughter's rather small bedroom. She wanted some white to match the remainder of the furniture in the room. It hurt a lot to paint solid cherry legs and aprons, however it is my daughter and that's what she wanted. The tops however...
  7. Side table

    I made this small cherry&walnut table during a furniture design course. The class turned out to be quite basic and I didn't learn much unfortunately but I tried to make it a bit more difficult by adding the bulge in the tapered legs. Really not that difficult, but at least I got a really...
  8. Desk Build

    A clean simple desk that I call a Library Desk. Maple (mostly figured maple). The key features is matching grain across the from apron rail and the drawer faces. Tapered legs, simple wooded drawer runners/supports and a 1" thick top. The frame/carcass is surprisingly light and easy to...
  9. parrot cage table

    X-wife wanted a table to put her bird cage on. I made a cruder one for the same purpose about five years ago that involved my first attempt at mortise and tenon construction. My attempt here reminds me I still have a lot to learn. Second pic shows the ugly gap in first mortise and tenon cut...
  10. Porch Table

    My wife wanted a place to set some decorations on the porch. As you can see in the first picture, I have an abundance of cedar. Some of it is for a toddler swing set I have been asked to build for our church. I also thought it would look good with the cedar porch swing I made earlier this year...
  11. Walnut and Cherry Coffee Table

    This coffee table is based off the article in American Woodworker by Tim Johnson. I built it for a fundraiser for the school my kids go to and it was auctioned off in the silent auction. Instead of doing all walnut like the article, I used cherry for the top, the drawer handle and the inlay on...
  12. Cherry & Birch Art table

    Hey All, This was a long overdue project that my boys needed so that the actual kitchen table could take a break from the odd paint spills and marker streaks after the daily art sessions were over. It went together pretty quick with pocket hole screws. the top is Birch plywood with Cherry...
  13. Hall Table

    I made this table for my wife, it is made from Red Oak, Poplar drawer sides, and Red Mahogany inlay. First time I have done any inlay work and I must say, I am very pleased with the way it came out and wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. I thought about using walnut for the inlay, but...
  14. Simple Vanity with tapered legs

    Here is a Walnut vanity that I was asked to build for my brother in law. it was for their powder room with very limited space. they purchased the top and asked the me to make the bottom to fit. It was based on a vanity that they saw at a high end bathroom store, but with a $1,800 price tag...
  15. Wormy Chestnut End Table

    Finished my end table. My first attempt at long tapered legs. It's made mostly of chestnut, a rare wood, since the tree is virtually extinct, The side boards are reclaimed chestnut barn siding, and they're full of the worm holes that killed the tree. The top is from the top piece of an old...
  16. Walnut and Reclaimed White Oak Console Table

    I've had a lot of white oak sitting around in my shop that was salvaged from an old barn. I was unsure of the species of wood because it was coated in about 150 years of crud and the boards just looked black until I was able to plane them down, but when I did I discovered that it was white oak...
  17. Entry Table (with hidden drawer)

    Entry table made with a natural edge Sapele top and Curly Maple. Finished with teak oil. The front apron hides a drawer with shop-made dove tail drawer slides. The top is attached via pocket screws. No plan, just wingin' it as usual.
  18. Cherry and maple end table

    Design can be a frustrating part of woodworking. With the vast amount of accomplished woodworkers out there, completely original ideas are hard if not impossible to create. For me, a fresh design rarely entails new design elements, but instead consists of an amalgam of existing design elements...
  19. Hand carved wood turner

    Ok, first let me say, I did not make this - a good friend of mine did. I found a similar one he made on the internet and he was kind enough to make me a personalized one! I just thought I would share this with everyone, cause it is such a special piece and so wonderfully done. My granddad was...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I recently acquired a Bostitch pancake compressor, nothing fancy, and not the compressor I want. But, it was the best option available at the time. I understand that standard practice is to drain the tank at the end of the day and empty any condensation that has collected to prevent rust and...
