  2. Bow-Front Commode

    Yeah, yeah, I know… Commode. This was my final piece that I started at school. It was really fun to work on, because it was the first piece that I really got involved in the engineering of. Generally, the instructors know how to build things, and it's just a matter of choosing between...

    A wedding gift for two friends. I salvaged a high-quality office chair & built a solid base. Turnings from Lowe's. The chair is a blue suede. Hence the marks. Wrestling this project to completion during 100 deg. days in the shop was quite exciting - I couldn't get any sweat on the fabric...

  10. Morris chair restoration

    After completing my bathroom vanity and cabinet, I decided to work on a simple, quick project. Was I ever mistaken! What I thought would be just retying a few springs, replacing a spindle, regluing the carved additions to the chair feet, and reupholstering two cushions turned into a major...

    Whew! Just completed this cedar-lined blanket chest (hope chest) for our daughter, still in time for her birthday. Since she will soon graduate as a botanist, that seemed a fine justification to include some "exotic plants" (ie, hardwood species I've been wanting to try out) in the...
  15. Toyboxes

    These toyboxes are all variations of a plan for an outside storage box. I thought that the plans would work as a great toybox for my little girl, then my niece, then my other niece. They were built over the span of about 3 years. Each is a little bit different & a little bit better than the...
