  1. Trestle Table Design for Patio

    This table is made of Alder and is my own design. The base is a trestle where I utilized twin stretchers that are assembled using a tapered mortise with a wedge made of Sapele. These are through tenons as you can see in one of the detail photos. My inspiration for this came from a table made...
  2. Shop Stool

    Here's my recent addition to the shop furniture: shop stool. Since I've got some serious space constraints in the shop the stool was designed to serve as a sitting stool, as a step stool so I can reach for upper shelves, and as a short saw bench for cross-cutting and for ripping (those holes in...
  3. Shop Stool

    This stool was built based on the stool built by David Marks on wood works. The through tenons are made by cutting away the top and re gluing it back together. While he didn't use dowels on the top i did and it made it way easier to put back together and added a nice little touch. On the...
  4. Quarter Sawn White Oak Murphy bed | Custom

    This is a Mission style Murphy bed that was built in November 2011. I usually build it out of red oak but I guess using quarter sawn white oak is staying more true to the mission style. It is a very beautiful wood. Some other things I did different on this mission project is to do more...
  5. Mission Style Recording Studio Workstation

    I needed a bigger desk for my composing, so I decided on this design. It's solid hickory except for the legs, which are laminated plywood with a hickory veneer, and the top and keyboard plate which are hickory veneered plywood. The construction features pinned through tenons. The top is...
  6. Hickory & Walnut Trestle-Style Dining Table

    I finished my dining room table that has been in the works for several years now! My goal was to complete the table in time to celebrate Christmas with my family gather around it, and that goal was met. We hauled in the table on Christmas day and some of us (I have a larger family) were able to...
  7. Figured Red Oak and African Mahogany End Table

    Slowly adding some of the projects I've done over the years. In making this I wanted to experiment with a different way to make an apron. I fell in love with the designs at Mokuzai Furniture and wanted to try my hand at one of his apron designs, but then decided to add a tusked tenon. I cut the...
  8. Maple Live Edge Table

    My son and his girlfriend purchased their first home. I built this maple table for their dining area. The table is 36" wide and 72" long. The top is made from two live edge maple slabs (originally about 2 1/4 inches thick) Unfortunately each slab had quite a twist. To maximize the...
  9. 2x4 Bench: A cheap Pottery Barn knock-off

    If you would like to watch a video of this build, watch here: I don't have any money to buy nicer wood, so I used some 2×4's I had on hand. The whole bench consists of 2×4's from the home center. The first thing I did was glue up the top by planing and laminating four 2×4's together to make a...
  10. First End Table

    This was my first "real" woodworking project. I stumbled across a free plan by Kevin Rodel in FWW and really liked the Arts and Crafts style. At the time, I had a $100 Ryobi table saw, a used router table, and a Dewalt 735 planer that I picked up on Craigslist. I did not bother using quarter...
  11. New Gloucester Rocking Chairs

    Completed February 2013. These rocking chairs are modeled after Thomas Moser's New Gloucester rocking chairs. The spindles and legs are ash, while the rest of the chair is cherry. All spindles and legs go through the full thickness of the seat blank and are wedged for additional strength...
  12. Crescent Foot Stool

    Completed March 2013. These stools are my interpretation of a Thomas Moser design. They are the perfect mate to the New Gloucester rocking chairs I recently completed. I drilled an initial leg hole the wrong direction. Instead of trashing the blank, I cut the mistake out of the blank and...
  13. Traditional Joinery Shoe Bench

    This bench uses traditional joinery wherever possible to lock the individual wood pieces together. The top and shelf slats are Ambrosia Maple, while the base is Cherry. The surfaces are left rough sawn to create an aged, rustic appearance, and lightly hand scraped to create a smoother texture...
  14. Inlaid Live Edge Curly Maple & Walnut Bench

    Ahhhhh! It feels so good to finish a piece that's taken a while! I usually try to whip through furniture, but on this piece, I had to wait on inlay materials, which was excruciating for me, lol! Anyways, here she is, a stunning live edge curly maple & walnut bench (or coffee table)… I call it...
  15. Bench

    Some benches I made. The first one and second are walnut and cherry. The third is all walnut. I have seen other benches with this design on here. 3 coats of lacquer. The first one I kept and is in my house. I love the top.
  16. Honey Locust Coffee Table W/ Dovetail Legs

    This project is certainly my most ambitious yet! I've made 5 tables before this, but they have all been very cheap and functional things that I slapped together from scrap pine. It is in my nature to cut corners, but I'm trying to overcome that weakness. My woodworking teacher always used to...
  17. Ash & Cherry Table

    This is a project I finished recently. My wife teaches high-school choir and wanted a table to organize papers, music, etc. on. She provided me with the dimensions, and asked that it be made as low-cost as possible (diapers and day care are expensive). The lower shelf is set back so that she...
  18. Mission Headboard

    Made a set of nightstands and a headboard for our guest room. White oak, dyed with TransTint dye (diluted with water) and then finished with wiping varnish. Through tenons on the stretchers (pegged), and then the slats are joined with dowels. The second picture is cutting the arc on the top...
  19. Essential Tool Chest

    I finished this project about a month ago and have been using it in the shop since. I finally got around to taking some pictures and would like to share them. The tool chest is working nicely. This is the first project that I have completed to use dove tail, half blind dovetails, tenons and...
  20. Stickley Style Trestle Table

    I Just installed this Stickley inspired trestle table today. This is my first dining table and I am very happy with the results. The new owner of the table is happy with it too. It is built with Quarter Sawn White Oak, stained then finished with a conversion varnish. I used equalizing...
