  1. Oak and Tile coffe table

    This is the second of this type of coffee table I built. It is oak with a single large tile inset. I had built the first one for my own home, and my mom likes it enough that she asked me to build her one. This is hers. It is stained with dark walnut danish oil only, then clear coated with...
  2. San Francisco Arts & Crafts Fair Tile Frame

    Last year, we won the drawing for a commemorative tile at the festival/fair thingy. It's really cool (signed by the artist and 1 of 1 edition), and a great souvenir of our time in the Bay Area. I promised my girlfriend that I'd make a frame for it (someday). Well, while I was pondering my...
  3. My Thorsen Side Table

    Here is my interpretation of the Thorsen House Side Table. As you can see I have put a couple of twists to make it my own while keeping a couple of elements to show the table's heritage. What makes my version of this table unique is that creating it took not only a labor of limited skill but a...
  4. Guest bath remodel

    Recently did a complete remodel of our small guest bathroom. New everything. Did the tiling, built the cabinet with cherry and veneered bird's eye maple panels (my first veneering job), and the mirror (sorry about the pic). I really liked doing the mirror out of a good buy on some 15+ year old...
  5. Laundry Room upgrade

    After making a base to set the front load washer and dryer on, well ~ I found it on my "Honey Do List" to make a bench to fold clothes on and redo the old laundry tub sink. Now all I have to do is make that old upper cabinet match. I think I will just replace the face frame and make new doors to...
  6. End Table/Charging Station

    I finally got around to building a matching end table to my coffee table project (located here http://lumberjocks.com/projects/23751). We were also in need of a charging station for the ridiculous amount of gadgets that constantly need juice, so I decided to combine the two. The original...
  7. Tile Frame

    I made this tile frame for my wife. The frame consists of old growth redwood with a maple inlay, using mortise and tenon joinery. The finish is shellac topped with a few coats of poly. The redwood came from some old logs that had been lying on the ground at my in-laws place since the 1930's...

  9. Arts and Craft, Mission Tile Frame w/Oak Glen Tiles

    "The Story" I was contacted by Laura Reutter owner of Ravenstone Tiles about 2 weeks ago wanting to know if I would like making a frame for one of her customers that she had done these Oak Glen Tiles for. Of course I said "why yes", she gave me the customer information and asked if I would...
  10. Craftsman Mantle Clocks with Etched Dials

    I wanted to do a relatively simple (to build) craftsman style clock to sell along with my others, but I wanted something that incorporated a tile. I found a design online from Schlabaugh & Sons to start from (last pic). I made a few changes to it that I think improves it a bit. 1st, I wanted...
  11. Tile Top Box in QS Sycamore

    This is a small tile top box made from quartersawn Sycamore with Arts and Crafts detailing (photo 1 & 3). The box is similar to one that I saw on the internet (unfortunately I can't remember where to give credit). The top (photo 2) measures 6.75" wide x 7" high and is made from 0.75" thick...
  12. Tile Trivets

    These are 2 of the 4 trivets I made for Christmas presents this past year. The plan was from Woodworking Magazine (http://popularwoodworking.com/article/tile_trivet) I'd picked up the tiles over a year ago during a trip to Banff. The wood is all QSWO and finished with BLO and amber shellac...
  13. Arts & Crafts/Craftsman Style Frames

    These are two frames that I made for my wife for Christmas this year. These will probably be displayed in her office at her work. They are constructed of quarter sawn red oak with mortise and tennon construction. The pegs are ebonized black walnut and have been pillowed to set proud by about...

    This is simple weekend project for my friend. He asked me to make framed tiles panel with Spain tiles for your kitchen. He saw this idea during the journey in Italia.The tiles I glued on the pine panel 3/4" with polyurethane glue. For the frames I used the rests of sapele pieces. Finishing teak...
  15. Entrance Stairway

    This was one of my first "big" woodworking projects. We moved into our home back in 2005 and did a bunch of renos the week before we moved in. One of the renos was removing the ugly blue carpet that resembled a trampled Grover muppet from Sesame Street after a night of binge drinking. The carpet...
  16. Arts and Crafts Tile Coffee Table

    Made coffee table with a bit of arts and crafts inspiration on the legs. My wife is really good with tile and she came up with the idea to tile the center of it. We used 3 pre-fab'ed 1'x1' glass & slate tile squares to make the center - the kind that come stuck together on a plastic mesh that...
  17. Tile-top End Tables

    This is one of a pair of end tables based on the same design as my earlier side table. I used cherry again, but for the top instead of a breadboard top I used mosaic tiles that my wife made. I also added a shelf, which led me to keep the legs straight instead of tapering them. The finish is...
  18. Clock for my sister's bathroom

    Once again, something for my beautiful sister. Once again, this is exactly how she drew it up - the square frame with the rope trim and two matching little shelves. It was my idea however, to use one of her floor and backsplash tiles as the clock face. Turned out pretty damn good if I say so...
