  1. Tool chest ? ....

    The chest is made out of cedar, salvaged from an old corner cabinet disassembled 20 years ago when we moved to our current house. Fortunately I kept the lumber in the attic for all this time. I have been researching for a tool chest since a couple of months ago. (I don´t know why surfing the...
  2. End Table

    The top pattern of this table was made using oak flooring. It turned out to be harder than I originally thought it would be. The flooring was tongue and groove and the side with the groove turned out not to be straight; rather it had a slight curve that matched up with the tongue side. This...
  3. Tongue drum

    Hi there, been lurking around LJs for awhile now. This site has been a great resource for knowledge and inspiration. Thought it was time to post one of my first projects. I made a tongue drum for my 2 year old son as an Easter gift. Top is 3/4" purple heart with 1/2" cherry sides. Dimensions...
  4. 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...

  6. My entry in the Cutting Board Makers Club

    This is my third attempt making a 3D cutting board. First two I didn't get the angle right. It's made out of maple, cherry, and walnut. I used the plans that SPalm and RetiredCoastie have but changed it a little. I made a jig on my miter gauge with a toggle clamp to get the angle just right. I...
  7. Ribbon/Bow Box

    I like to tinker mostly in making puzzles and toys for children. But when I saw the Bow/Ribbon box in a video on youtube along with a template for the box and ribbon, I knew I had to try it. It's made of poplar and red oak. Next time I'll try inlay for the ribbon, but not having a planer will...
  8. Kitchen Cabinets and Countertops

    The kitchen cabinets are made of oak. They have been a long work in progress. The doors have all been handplaned and raised. The countertops are made of walnut endgrain butcher block.
  9. Tongue Drums

    These are what I call my economic drums. Me and my boy wanted to do a project together and he is really into music. We tried flutes first and they didn't turn out so well. Thats when I found these, WOW I never even heard of them before. The sounds they make are so beautiful. Since he is 10...

  11. Slit Drums

    Last Fall, I was approached about a woodworking project for the kids at my church for their bi-weekly Kids Club program. We built birdhouses a couple years ago, but this time I wanted something a little more interactive. The idea of a musical instrument fit the bill and then I stumbled across...
  12. Pine and Purple Heart Blanket Chest

    This is a blanket chest I made copied from the Norm Abrams design. I made it because I was extremely excited to get rid of a huge amount of pine I had collected and was very excited about my new pair tongue and grove router bits I had recently bought. The whole thing is tongue and grove...
  13. Pine Photo Cabinet

    My neighbor commissioned me to build her this photo cabinet for her framed photography. Each door was built using a tongue and grove router bit set and all the joints are dados/rabbits. Should have bought a biscuit jointer…. The strips were made of masonite and wedged into saw kerfs. The trim is...
  14. Aquarium Stand/ Side Table

    Hey guys! Here are some pictures of what I would call my first piece of "fine furniture". It is a mission style aquarium stand that I custom designed and drew in Sketch Up. The legs and slats are mortise and tenon, the intermediate shelf ends are tongue and groove, the top has breadboard...
  15. Stackable File Cabinets

    A set of file cabinets I built as a Christmas gift for a friend at work. Made with red oak and stained using Minwax Jacobean, finished using a homemade wipe-on poly. They are actually three separate boxes with 100lb capacity full extension drawer slides. They fit into one another using small...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    To ensure that when I use a straightedge, the straightedge in my hand is truly straight and doesn't just look straight, I checked my straight edge tools (squares, steel rulers, the combination ruler blade, etc.) against my Bridge City Toolworks (24") straight edge. The results show that several...

    In the Beginning... This is my most ambitious project to date. I'm going to make a Greene & Greene sofa table that closely follows the design of premier G&G LJ Darrell Peart. I pinged him the other day, and he sent me to American Furniture Design Co. to buy plans. As you can see, they're not...
