  1. Train Table (Thomas)

    I would have bought this, but the ones I saw were all kind of flimsy. I wanted something that would not break if my daughter or a friend climbed up on it. This is nearly all 1/2" maple ply, with solid maple rails and reinforcements. If not obvious from the picture, it was a Christmas gift...
  2. Sign for Christmas...

    Here's a fun little sign I did for my in-laws. They just did a huge rebuild/remodel after being flooded. They were part of the big floods in Cedar Rapids, IA. I wanted to give them something that they could put on their new and improved home that should be finished sometime early this next year...
  3. Thomas the train table

    Built this for my son and daughter, well OK I play with it too. To buy the table was quite expensive so I built one out of some white pine trim I had and some old desk legs, thats why the hole plugs don't match. The inner frame is the same size as the mat so it carries the weight. The outside is...
  4. Cranky Crane Replica

    To read my journey in this project, check out my blog series here. [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] My 14 year old daughter, who has been creating short film projects with her old Thomas the Tank Engine toys asked me if I could build her a Cranky the Crane. I told her that I could definitely make...
  5. Train table for Christmas

    My kids are big fans of Thomas and Friends so naturally they got several tracks and trains for Christmas from Grandma. They had them all over the floor so I made them this table. It has got maple legs and aprons and a birch plywood top with a purpleheart inlay. I used the pour on counter top...
  6. Thomas the Tank Engine

    Grandson (older brother of granddaughter who wants the appaloosa rocking horse) was into Thomas. Parents wanted storage cupboard. While on reflection this may have bruised copyright this was my answer. Finished unit actually had cotton-balls on fine wire as smoke from the stack. Engines and...
  7. Little Logger

    Little Logger Thomas the Engine is big stuff with little people. So big, the cost of equipment to supply the desires of children and grandchildren is extraordinary. So when I was able to come upon a Log Loader for my grandson's Thomas the Engine Log Hauling Train Cars, at a used price, I was...
  8. Office Desk /Table

    Built table for office out of Lacewood, There were two distinct colors to the wood I chose. Built a table rather than a desk as the walls are surrounded with shelves and wanted two people to be able to use at one time. The lacewood was a challenge, I never had so many slivers! There were...
  9. Foldable Adirondack Chairs-treated lumber

    I built these for a friend who just had to have foldable Adirondacks vs. fixed ones. I won't disclose what plans I used on here but they were not very concise as I had to take them apart and modify specific parts for them to work properly, which wasn't too big of a deal just keep the 36 grit...
  10. Dawson's Train Bed | Custom

    This is a bed built for Dawson. We built it in a train theme. A lot of work went in the little details. Details like the curved front end and top. We had to frame it up and use bending plywood to for the curve. I also added a light with a 3 stage touch dimmer. Of course we also put...
  11. Reclaimed Grey Barn Siding Sliding Door

    Here's a nice looking grey siding covered sliding barn door we did. This wood came from Iowa. This cool door covers the entry to a pantry and uses our 8″ v groove wheel hardware. I love this oversized hardware. It glides so smooth. I used the new style black phenolic door guide I recently...
  12. Nixon Express Train Bed | Custom

    This is a train bed that was completed in August 2012. It is on of several that train bed that we have built. Each time we change it either to make it better and/or to personalize it to the child. This one was for Nixon so we put his name on the front of the train. We also put "Nixon...
  13. Straight Track for Thomas the Tank Engine

    This might sound odd, but my 14 year old daughter asked if I could make some straight Thomas the Tank Engine track. It's not that she plays with it per se, but her little cousin has helped bring on a renaissance in her wooden Thomas trains. He plays with them when he visits. My daughter has...
  14. Monterillo Sculpture Stands

    These are 12×12x12 Boxes made of 4/4 monterillo. They are completely mitered to give it a very contemporary look. I continued the grain across three sides for appearance. The sides all consist of 3 pieces that are laminated together. They weigh a ton bun they look good and are very sturdy. I...
  15. Reclaimed White Oak Threshing Floor Table with Gas Pipe Base

    This is some of my favorite wood for reclaimed table tops. It has so much character. This top sits on a gas-pipe base and is bar height (42"). I put some bowtie (butterfly) inlays in the top for fun. The finish is Briwax per customer request. These particular boards came from a 200+ year old...
  16. Play Table for Wood Trains

    [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] I made this table on request for a Christmas present. My nephew's son is 3 and just getting into the wooden Thomas trains. His parents wanted something to keep the trains off the floor, yet small enough to be taken up stairs. I took measurements off a play table at...
  17. Kids Picnic Table

    This is a poplar children's picnic table that I made for my son's 1st birthday. I had seen a picture of a picnic table out of an old magazine that I liked and so I just started cutting. No rough drawings… no Sketchup… just a cut here. Cut there. Took about a day from milling to finish. Had to...
  18. Cabinet Vanity - African Mohogany

    I had a client who wanted to build a relatively simple cabinet that would fit in between her two mirrors in the bathroom. It had to be somewhat exacting as to the size, and it had to wrap over the backsplash. The mirrors were some sort of mahogany, so I matched them as best I could for color...
  19. "The Art Barn"

    I made a sign for my wife's new workshop. It's scrap masonite letters painted black over a Cypress board. The cypress should turn grey over time and look really neat. I cut the letters using a bandsaw and a rotary tool for the insides of the letters.
  20. Cherry Sink Base & Wastebasket

    This project was designed to match the other contemporary pieces I built for their home. I built the wastebasket as a gift. They are both constructed out of natural 4/4 cherry. Satin finish. Mitered up… clean lines… no visible hardware on the sink. I used aluminum to accent the rim of the...
