  1. Tree shelves for Nursery

    This would be my first post to this site but me and my dad have been building things for years. I'm trying to grow my ideas and skills from typical cabinets and such and branch out (see what I did there) to other more creative designs. I saw various ideas for tree shelves for my sons nursery...
  2. Wine stopper and corkscrew set.

    The wine stoppers are olive wood and canary wood, the corkscrew stopper is cocobolo. The block is maple and the engraving done on a CNC machine. The letters were colored with craft paint prior to applying the finish.
  3. Accent Table

    Small accent table made from random leftovers. I used red & yellow heartwoods for top & sycamore branches for legs. Since I was using up some leftover woods, once I had it assembled, I didn't feel like the top & legs matched at all. So, I used a Dremel & carved the spirals around the legs &...
  4. Shoe rack or tree for walk-in closet

    I made this shoe tree for my daughter for her walk-in closet this Christmas past. I searched LJ and Goggled, but didn't find much along the line I was looking for; so, I made my own design loosely based on the store bought plastic thingy that was falling apart. It is made of 1×3 oak and 5/8"...
  5. Tree Branch Stool

    This is my Tree Branch Stool It is made from a tree branch that i found and dried out and the top is made from pallet wood. The total cost of this build was about £0.20. Great for putting your brew on or just to sit down somewhere.
  6. Planter

    This is a planter I made for the final project in a basic woodworking class. The legs are made from laminated white oak and walnut, the rails and bottom are hard maple, and the thin vertical strips are cherry. All the joinery is mortise and tenon, and the finish is several coats of Minwax...
  7. Irony: a tree made from plywood.

    There's a local school for the disadvantaged that has just been sponsored a library - some companies and many members of the community put in time or money. I don't know if they've had one before - the school dates from 1881 - but it's certainly the first the present kids have encountered. I...

  9. Claro Walunt Tree to Lumber

    This is some claro black walnut that was cut down in California. It was my first tree I had milled down… a lot of heavy lifting initially untill I found a rancher with some heavy machinary to do the milling. Very nice looking slabs I got out of this. More to come. Now comes the air drying...
  10. Tree of Life

    This picture was done for a friend of mine that makes jewerly. When I picked it out to make for her, later that same day, she had given me a necklace with a medallion of the very same picture. Do we know each other or what. The picture measures 19"x19"x5/8". It is made of Baltic Birch...

    This is my first major woodworking project. I've been a lurker here for a while and I've learned a lot. Thanks for being such a great community.
  14. Entertainment Center Tree

    I wanted a unique entertainment center that wasn't just a stack of shelves or a cabinet. That said, I also hate wires. The trunk of this entertainment center is hollow and each arm has an entry behind it for wires to enter the trunk. Inside the trunk is a surge protector (and a million...
  15. Drink Cap on Stairs

    The is a Trex deck with aluminum railings and a drink cap also using Trex decking. The material is spiced rum which is a multi tone board giving a more convincing appearance of wood. The size of this deck is 8'x22'. The highlight of this project that makes it worth sharing is the continuous...
  16. Rustic Christmas Tree

    A friend of my wife's liked a picture of one like this and so my wife saw it on her FB news feed and liked it a lot. The people were selling them for $49. I was able to duplicate it using free pallet wood and screws I already had, so total cost to us was $0. My wife painted the lettering…we...
  17. Joint Stool from a Tree

    In July of 2013, I attended the "Make a Joint Stool from a Tree" class taught by Peter Follansbee at Roy Underhill's Woodwright's School in Pittsboro, North Carolina. I am perfectly aware … this is not a nice looking or, even a good example of craftsmanship. I won't show you any close ups of...
  18. Little chubby cars

    This was what I did with my weekend :) My wife had this idea for the little neighbor girl's Birthday, where she wanted to get blocks, and have me make small cars to play with them. So these are little (about 2" long by 1" tall) versions of my other cars. I added the houses after ones that I...
  19. Lollipop Tree

    This lollipop tree is the prototype for a cub scout webelo woodworking project. It was built from leftover oak donated by my son's teacher from last year, so this will be going to her after the boys get started on their trees. It's a simple project built from 3/4" x 3/4" stock, with the bottom...
  20. Arts & Crafts Coat/Hall Tree

    One of my earlier pieces. It's a relatively simple design that I made up myself. Red oak stained with Minwax water-based Vermont Maple, as that was the closest and easiest finish I could find that matched my idea of what Arts & Crafts furniture should look like. An attitude that is still...
