  1. Fundraiser Item: Serving/Drink Tray

    I made this serving tray/drink tray for a fundraiser that we are having tonight for my wife, Lisa. She will be walking in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure, in San Diego, in the middle of November. It is a 3-day walk that spans 60-miles (20-miles/day). She has participated in the Susan...
  2. Hollow Vessel Turning

    This is my first attempt at hollow vessel turning. It started as a 10" long 7" diameter Redwood Burl veneer core log piece and this is how it ended up. I guess I could have made the neck opening a little smaller; however, I was more interested in learning technique at the time. I sanded up to...
  3. Beveled Walnut Dining Table

    My wife and I have been wanting a bigger dining table for when we have guests over. Since I have a make-shift shop at home, I waited and signed up for a wood shop class at our community college in Santa Cruz, so that I'd have access to some bigger tools. Before class started, I found a couple...
  4. Modern Style Beveled Edge Dinning Table

    I recently completed a new table for a client on the East Coast. He and I worked on refining a design from a simple concept to one that had the details he was looking for. The main feauture of this table was the base design. Very modern with two small rectangles that make up the legs and then a...
  5. Coffee Table

    I just finished this the other day. I saw that a few days ago someone else made the same table out of Maple. It's based off of the Arts and Crafts coffee table plans in the July / August 2005 Fine Woodworking. I made mine out of cherry, and the boards are 3/4", where the plan calls for 1"...
  6. Shaker Hall Table in Cherry

    Here's a small table I made for my mother in law. It's 48" x 16" x 30" high, mortise and tenon joints and finished with satin Waterlox original. It has inside tapered legs - 1 3/4" to 7/8". The top is 7/8" thick. Nothing complicated, Thanks for looking.
  7. Simple scrap wood jig

    This is a simple jig that you can make out of scrap wood and I end up using it all the time. It is a table saw sled, it is just not as cumbersome as the really large sleds. It rides along your miter slot. You can crosscut small stock and flip it over for a 45 degree cut. Quick and simple.
  8. Mahogany Military Saber Case

    I built this Mahogany Military Saber Display Case for a friend of mine who has a son who is an officer in the Air Force and an honor graduate from Norwich University. The piece is made from both quarter-sawn and plain-sawn mahogany and was finished with Waterlox Original. TONS of pictures of the...
  9. Red Wood Burl Table with Blackened Cherry Base

    56"x30"x21" Redwood burl top, blackened cherry log bottom.
  10. Ebonized Ash/Sapele Nightstand

    Pretty straightforward….This was a prototype made from some wormy Ash that my wife decided would become a kid's desk, so the lower shelf got deleted. The finals would be made with walnut and walnut crotch veneer panels but I am not crazy about this design after seeing it come to life. It seems...
  11. Barnwood Island Top

    Built an island top for a customer. She contacted me after I posted a picture of a truckload of circular sawn oak from a barn that was been turn down. The boards were originally about 8 inches wide. I ripped the boards in half because they had a cup in them. I did this to minimize the effect of...
  12. The luxury of finely sanded figured walnut

    I came across this on the walnut bed project for the first time, that of the feel of figured walnut sanded to 400+ grit. The touch goes straight to your spine and warms the whole body. I know I know, pretty dramatic. It's a magical thing that disappears as soon as you put a finish on it. Such a...
  13. Dining Room Table - maple, walnut and mahogany

    I decided to make a new dining room table to replace the table that my parents got at a garage sale in 1970. It was time. I spent a lot of time doing image searches on Lumberjocks to get ideas about what we wanted. I settled on maple, walnut, and mahogany because I like the contrasts and I...
  14. Charles Limbert Dining Table Restored

    I had the chance and the honor to work on an authentic Charles Limbert dining table over the past few weeks. The table was 48 inches in diameter and had only one of its leaves remaining. At first, I was asked just to refinish the top and caulk paint the base. I wasn't commissioned to do any type...
  15. A Desk

    Dakotawood this desk and I knew that it was the perfect style to build for my wife (MANY Thanks Dakotawood). I used his provided dimensions and then Sketchup to come up with a design. I chose walnut for this project and finished it with Waterlox. I had many challenges due to my small space...
  16. Custom Solid Surface Chess Board - Pear, Leopard Wood, Ebony, & Walnut!

    OK - I for one have done some digging and found that the quality of chess boards available in the world today is just well POOR! They are all paper thin veneers, just junk! I hate paper back veneer, I dislike lacquer … and generally - great it's ALL walnut and maple or maybe a very high end...
  17. Wooden Dice!

    Funny how a fella can go so long and then an idea "pops" into his head. When the idea of making some wooden dice came to me, I thought Wow, what an original idea. It's so simple that I bet no one else has done it yet. Well, at least not posted them to share with others. Ha ha, was I wrong...
  18. Live Edge Walnut Dining Table-Mini Conference Table On Steel Base

    This top is made from 2 1 3/4" thick reclaimed natural edge slabs of walnut. Base is two 3" square tube steel frames 22"w x 28"h. Total build is 7 1/2'L x 29 1/2"h width varies from 24 3/4"- 31 1/2". It is heavy, heavy, heavy. Finished in a satin Waterlox mixture. I had a LJ buddy help me...
  19. Maple Quilt Ladder

    I found the plans for this quilt ladder in Wood magazine a while back. I decided to make it for my mom who does a lot of quilting these days. Overall the construction is not very difficult, although with three kids it took me longer to complete than I am willing to say. I did modify the plans a...
  20. End Grain Board Purpleheart & Lyptus

    I saw this design online and wanted to have a go at making my own. A very experimental project for me really. I just used remnants of previous projects and the wood selection would not have been my first choice. I gifted the board to my cousin as I rarely sell my work.
