  1. Outdoor Cypress Gate

    Here is my most recent project. It is a solid cypress gate made out of 8/4 cypress and 3/4 tongue and groove cypress for the panel finished with a solid stain. We modified the original design to incorporate the previous gate's materials which are the cedar caps for the door and jamb which are...
  2. Four Drawer File Cabinet in cherry

    I made this Cherry four drawer filing cabinet to replace the crappy metal one that I am happily throwing out. This cabinet is solid Cherry, with Maple drawers and Mahogany drawer fronts. The case and drawers are all dovetailed, and the drawer bottoms and cabinet back are all tongue & groove Oak...

  5. Card Scraper till

    I guess you could say this is another installment in tills for the space challenged shop. ;-) I got the idea from a picture I found in a magazine shops, could have been fine woodworking. I had planed to put another shelf below it to hold my card scraper sharping jigs but decided to change the...
  6. How To Make Tongue and Groove Doors With A Table Saw

    A quick and cheap way to change the look of a kitchen is to just change the cabinet doors. I recently took on a job to make new cabinet doors for a relatives kitchen. It ended up being 21 cabinet doors and 4 new drawers. Cheap pine was used to keep the cost down as this was a budget project. To...
  7. Reclaimed Wide Plank Heart Pine Barn Wood Flooring

    I milled this floor from our reclaimed "Granary Boards". Most of this wood came from barns in Pennsylvania that were 150-300 years old. I ran the rough boards through the planer and wide belt sander, then ripped it to the correct widths. Then I ran them all through the shaper with a flooring...
  8. Bookcase/Gate for Wide Opening Between Rooms

    We have a wide opening between the kitchen area and family room in our home. Sometimes we want our dogs to stay in one of those areas. When we moved in a few years ago we put in a wide baby gate but the dogs finally wiped it out trying to go through the narrow opening side by side too many...
  9. Built-in bath vanity, storage cabinet and matching tub surround

    Custom built-in bath vanity, above counter storage cabinet and matching tub surround. All doors and the matching tub surround are made of solid wood with tongue & groove beaded planks. Doors are held together with battens on the inside which have been dovetailed into the planks. No glue on the...
  10. Carving Chisel Chest

    This project was born from a couple of needs. I've begun carving, mostly picture frames for my artist/wife, so I've been acquiring carving chisels. At first, I'd keep them rolled up in a leather tool roll but seems as if 3 out of 10 times one would fall out and hit that concrete floor-edge...
  11. Cedar Planter box

    Cedar Planter Box I had some cedar off cuts that were given to me by a friend with a saw mill. The cedar came from a 50 year old telephone pole that had been pulled and replaced. I wanted to make planter boxes so I searched the site for other planter boxes that members had made. I found a...
  12. Cutting board rehab and replacement

    A friend asked me if I could "help him with a cutting board problem." I wasn't sure what this meant, but he brought me five pieces of a cutting board. His wife had run it through the dishwasher and the glue came apart. Pictures 2, 4, and 6 are the old cutting board. It's oak, and serviceable...
  13. Arts and Trash

    I thought this up to tidy the area behind my living room desk. It holds two paper grocery bags, one for recycling and one for trash. Red Oak and Black Walnut. Super Blond Shellac topped with Satin Poly. I can provide sketchup and links to the scroll work upon request.
  14. Cherry Slant Front Desk

    Here is my latest COMPLETE project. I'm so glad to get this done. This project has been in my shop for a solid year and I've been working on it on and off the whole time. I'd say if I worked on it from start to finish in a straight run, it would have been about 60 hours, but I just don't have...
  15. Garden gate #2

    This is the back gate for our garden enclosure. I posted the fence and front gate project previously. Several years ago I made a screen to hide a compost pile and put a Tree Of Life applique on it. I wanted to continue that theme on the gate. The large applique and the gate medallion are...
  16. Livingroom redo

    The boss had me tear out the oak trim that I put in the addition when I built it just ten years ago. It's all painted MDF and poplar now. I have to admit the built window seat and cabinets where a good idea. Happy wife happy life.
  17. Cedar Planter Box II

    Cedar Planter Box II I purchased an old cedar telephone pole and had a friend mill the pole into 8/4 and 4/4 slices on his mill. Then I went about making a number of cedar planters for both personal use and to sell. The planters are made from a 50 year old cedar telephone pole that was...
  18. First time making shaker doors

    I wanted to make some doors to add storage to the bottom of my miter station, and figured I might as well learn a new skill while I'm at it. The concept of tongue and groove doors is simple: all 4 pieces have a groove, and 2 of them have a tongue on each end, which allows you to snap the...
  19. Redwood Gate

    Our one year old German Shorthaired Pointer puppy was threatening to jump our old gate so I used some salvaged redwood fence boards to build a new one. I ripped the old boards down to 2 1/2" wide and planed both sides to net 9/16". Then I ran it by tongue and groove cutters on my router table...
  20. Pine Storage Chest

    This is a large pine wood chest that I designed and built just before the holidays. I wanted a design with legs that was easy to build, and this is what I came up with. I started by making 4 frames and connected them to the legs, then cladded the entire thing with tongue and groove paneling...
