  1. Knock down writing table

    I wanted to make a small writing table as a gift, but it needed to be able to be dis-assembled; I ended up making a shrunken version of this knock down trestle table from the Wood Whisperer. Alder, with walnut wedges and accents. Threaded inserts in the top with slots in the support arms...
  2. Stone Soup Dining Table w Inlay

    This will be a long story. You know the old fable of stone soup, right? ...an itinerant pedlar comes to town with a magic stone to make soup…but it just needs a few more ingredients to make it perfect. Yea, right. Well, one of my brothers retired recently and wanted to 'reassemble' a dining...
  3. African Mahogany and Purple Heart Trestle Table

    Sorry about the lighting in the pictures. I included a pre-finished pic to show some more of the contrast between the mahogany and the purple heart.
  4. Trestle Table

    A trestle table built from red oak. When I saw the design in a Better Homes & Gardens magazine ("Weekend Woodworking Projects", I believe is the title), I fell in love with the slim lines of this piece. Solid construction and fun to build, too.
  5. Tea Party Trestle Table

    Here is a tea-party trestle table that my father-in-law and I made with some of the wood that we had custom sawed and kiln dried from lumber off of my Dad's land in Maine. Suffice to say, I really lucked out in the Dad and father-in-law department. Most of the credit for this table belongs to...

  7. My son's new table

    My most recent project, just completed and delivered to my son 3 weeks ago. He wanted rustic, tool marks, nicks - dings - the whole works.

  9. trestle table base

    This table is another table I made for work…but it has a good story…( I just finished this little bench for the men's bathroom)... This is a table that was in our staff lounged at my school. I think it was made by a parent. One day in the fall I walked into the staff room and saw all this...
  10. Another Hand-Carved Pipe

    This was a wedding present for my younger brother. I used the same method I used on my first pipe (started with the belt sander, then dremel sanding wheel, then hand sanding), but I wanted to add a little bit of rustication to this one. I used a dremel carving bit to do the job, and as with all...
