  1. Rowboat

    I wanted to make a one person rowboat that I could easily toss in the back of my truck for a quick solo fishing trip. I started in August and put it in the water in early September. It worked better than expected. Floats like a charm and turns on a dime. I designed it based on photos and...
  2. Blanket Chest - Mission / Art&Crafts Style

    When I found the plans for this Mission / Arts & Crafts Blanket Chest in Wood Magazine (Feb./March 2005), I just knew that it would just look great sitting next to my first big furniture project, the Barrister's Bookcase and it would provide additional temporary seating as a bench. As with the...
  3. Chess Table

    My son wanted me to build him a table for his new chess set, so after some thought, with the chess set being a bit fancy I decided on cabriole legs which I had not yet attempted and something I wanted to try. They are challenging, time consuming, taking lots of patience, and I loved every...
  4. Late 19th Century Mirror Restore

    This mirror was my Great Great Grandmother's and I have personally had this for over 40-years, and for the last 30-years or so I could no longer hang it from the wall. The wood from the original frame had deteriorated so much that some of it felt like styrofoam and some had been eaten by a worm...
  5. Cutting Boards

    I am still building up my depleted inventory. I decided to try making an couple of edge grain CB's for variety. One is 12×18-1/2×1-5/8 made with Santos Mahogany, American elm, White Ash, Paduck, Flaked Oak, Shedua, Lyptus, Bocote. The other is 12×12 x 1-3/4 made with Paduck, Shedua, Sugar Maple...
  6. Business Card Holder

    I searched for business card holders on LJ and came across a couple of designs that looked pretty cool so I thought I would give it a shot. This is made from Peruvian Walnut and White Ash and was simply glued together and finished with 4 to 5 coats of General Finishes High Performance Satin...
  7. piano bench for my girlfriend and my daughter

    My girlfriend and my daughter needed a bench for their piano; it has therefore give me the idea to build one like piano key with space under the seat to put the partitions. Made of white ash and black walnut. Just a clear matt varnish to finish.
  8. Segmented Vase

    In November 2012, I gave a slideshow discussion demo for our club on segmented projects and turning and we made it a President's Challenge for the January meeting. Last night was our meeting and this vase was my entry for challenge. We had 17 particpants in the challenge which made me happy...
  9. Baby Gate from White Ash

    I made this back in April when my son started moving around, and we wanted to make sure his movements are only horizontal and not vertical. I actually wanted to avoid having to build something, since I have more than enough projects that need to be done around the house. We looked at several...
  10. Clock

    White ash with white gold leaf background. German weight driven movement.
  11. Retro-Modern Sideboard With Bent Ash

    This is my favorite project thus far and first I'm posting to this forum. A lot of the questions I originally had were answered through reading discussions of others with similar questions. Everything from WHICH GLUE??? (my favorites) to tips on bending wood. Of all of the research I did, I...
  12. More Krenov planes.

    Here are 3 planes I just finished making. A while ago I made a scrub, joiner, long smoother planes and thought I'll do a small block plane. Leftover ipe 2×4 was laminated for the first blank. I thought using such dense wood would be great for a hand plane but in retrospect it was quite a pain...
  13. Desk

    My son and I made this desk for his room. The top, legs, and handles are mahogany, and the apron and drawers are made from white ash that we milled ourselves. The Red Chestnut stain from Minwax really made the mahogany pop! To compare, the legs have no stain and are just finished with...
  14. White Ash Vase

    This White Ash vase was a bit of a challenge … the blank was irregular in shape, severely out of balance, and had rotted in the center leaving some nasty voids. I glued large waste blocks to both ends, which gave me some latitude in finding an axis to turn on. Some of the interior voids were...

  17. Stepstool

My design was simple, I cut a T into both sides, and used a simple rounded edge for are router bit. We used biscuits to joint the top too make it more longer and durable. Too assemble the whole...
