  1. Chess Table: First furniture project, 8 years ago

    This was my first significant woodworking project. I built it in 2009. The wood is 3/4" and 1/4" red oak from Lowe's, with hardwood plywood to support the tile top. I lived with 3 roommates in an awful apartment and wanted a place to play chess. The only tools I had then were two small...
  2. Simple trivets

    I had some leftovers after a small tiling project in my Mom's kitchen and decided to put the remaining tiles and some off-cuts from my scrap bin to work. The 'blue' one is poplar, stained to match a paper towel holder that I made for her, years ago. The 'natural' one is western red cedar...
  3. Aalto Inspired Tea Cart

    I am happy to say that I have completed my most recent project…Finally! More challenging then anything I have previously done. The project took 70 hours to complete not including the roughly ten hours it took to figure out and build the bending forms. I am very happy with the end result. The...
  4. Cherry End Tables

    Here is my latest project, a pair of cherry end tables with a slate tile top. Mortise and tenon joinery and hand-cut dovetail drawers. This is my first piece entirely of my own design. It is probably most reminiscent of an arts and crafts design with sort of an Asian influence. The tiled top...
  5. Greene and Greene Style Tile Frame in Quartersawn Sycamore

    We purchased a pair of tiles made by artist John Beasley of Medicine Bluff Studios at Nest & Company in New Jersey. The tiles (measuring 4"w x 8" h) are titled "Mother to Be" and "Leaving the Nest". The frame is Greene and Greene style made from quartersawn sycamore with ebony accents. The...
  6. Corner Mantle Over Tile

    This is a mantle I made for my parents' corner gas fireplace. The builder left it with ALOT of tile around (and a horrible window overhead). Before and after pictures above! I built it in place as opposed to in the shop and carrying it in. I built the surface out about 2.75" from the inside...
  7. Maple & Tile Tables

    If any of you have looked at what is available nowadays for furniture you probably had the same reaction that I had. Ewww Particle board, or I can build that for a lot less. I was in need of a coffee and end tables for the new Bach Pad and set forth to create some sawdust. Basic maple stock...
  8. Arts and Crafts House Number Tile Frame

    The wife has been wanting to get larger house numbers for the house for quite a few years now. So I struck a deal with Laura at Ravenstone Tile to make the house numbers and then she had two of her discontinued water lily tiles that I was able to score. The frame is made from some reclaimed...
  9. Tile top deck table

    Here is a table that I made for a friends wedding gift. He just built a new deck addition so I made this for his deck. It was suppose to be a three color table but I ended up with four. The older growth redwood got mixed in with some of the newer stuff I got last year for a bench I made. The...
  10. Custom Bathroom Furniture

    This will also be uploaded to Refurbers but since everything wood was custom made in my shop, I thought I'd post it as a project here. We had an old, and small bathroom with no window as it's located in the center of the house. It was last remodeled in the 70's, had a blue tub with marbleized...
  11. Shaker table with bluestone tiles

    I built this table using (mostly) the Wood Whisperer plans, with the obvious exception of the top. My mom had brought back some bluestone tiles from a trip and asked me to make her a table with them. Of course I always do what my mom wants. It's cherry throughout, except under the tiles in...
  12. Tile trivet

    These are tile trivets I made for Christmas presents for my mom, sister, and brother. The border is made from maple rails that I acquired when I helped take apart some old cribs at church. The tile I got fairly cheap at the Habitat for Humanity store. The rail pieces are mitered together and...
  13. Tile Table Tray

    Approximately 9"W x 14"L x 1-1/2"H. Fumed white oak and jatoba. I was rummaging through my wife's "reject" collection and pulled out this 8" x 12" tile she had fired a floral pattern decal onto. The problem with it was the decal got slightly overcooked and the colors faded a bit. I had made...
  14. Company Sign

    A sign with my employer's logo. The end caps are maple with morises to receive the sign. The actual sign is an oak stair tread that I stained then engraved with a shaper origin.
  15. bi-level ash coffee table with tile top

    Hope you enjoy! This is a coffee table made as a wedding present for my sister. All the wood except the bottom shelf in the middle is ash with a dark walnut stain. The shelf in the middle is a single piece of pine that i found interesting. It was all actualy old 30" baseboard segments that...
  16. Kitchen Counter Trim and Glaze Coat

    A few years ago, I experimented with tiling the top of our counter top. I used travertine, (which is a form of limestone), due to its resemblance to marble at a cost far less. Unfortunately, travertine is relatively soft and after a few years started to become pitted around the sink area. I...
  17. Tile backsplash

    My wife wanted something different as a backsplash above our oven. I did the main splash as a checkerboard look and found some black border tiles to create a frame around the open oven area. I broke up the black and white tiles into random shapes and sizes and just started placing them in like...
  18. Framed Motawi Tile - Cardinals Consorting

    This is a framed 6" x 8" Motawi Tile called Cardinals Consorting (photo 1 & 2). The frame is made from quartersawn red oak with cherry butterfly inlays. The frame stiles and rails are 0.75" thick and 2.5" wide. After preparing the stock and gluing up the basic frame, I cut slots for splines...
  19. Chevy Pick-up Bed Enclosure

    long story short.. Last summer I got really busy and started using my truck a lot to work in Brooklyn and the City I needed to secure my tools, and equip. I needed something, anything soon At first I literally threw something together in a couple of hours one night. I welded some square tubing...
  20. Keepsake box

    Here is a box I made for my mother (she is Dutch). It is walnut with meranti corner keys. The lid is an antique dutch tile. I wrapped the grain around the box. She loved it. Finish is danish oil (I couldn't find dutch oil.. :) )
