  1. FWW New-fangled Workbench

    Originally published as project in the Nov/Dec 1999 issue of Fine Woodworking, this bench was developed by John White, the shop manager at FWW. It was recently revived when the folks at the magazine put out a video as an update due to several inquiries about the bench over the years. For links...
  2. Ten Dollar Specials

    These are made of white fir that was cut from Salvage Logs and air dried to under seven percent in less than five weeks. I can surface plane, cut, assemble and sand thirty of these in a day (more if I use pre surfaced lumber). They are 16" long, 9" tall, 10" wide and assembled with hidden...
  3. Craftsman Headboard

    I made this for us out of quartersawn white oak. I finished it with TransTint Reddish Brown in alcohol so there would be no raising of the grain between the spindles. Ingenious design to moun the spindles inside of a box joint strip. Looks like an instant antique. I'm making a dresser to go...
  4. "David Marks" meets "Weekend at Bernie's"

    "What am I going to get Bernie for Christmas?" My dad asks me the same question every year! You see, he likes to get his business partner and friend, Bernie, something special every year for Christmas. It always has to be something unique. This year, I caught up with my Dad early and...

  6. Tile Display

    This frame was an anniversary gift to my son Ben and his wife Jenna. I was looking for a project to try out some of the joinery and details often seen in early Arts and Crafts pieces, especially from the Greene and Greene brothers. These "tiles" are actually color prints of tiles that I found...
  7. It's Bigger On The Inside...

    I'm a wee bit of a Doctor Who fan… If you haven't already figured that one out and I'm sure you can all relate to needing more shop space so I figured I'd turn the shop door into a Tardis. I haven't really figured out the interior dimensional changes as of yet but I think it has to do with the...
  8. Plywood Toy Box with Reclaimed Oak Overlay

    This was a project that my niece asked me to build for her daughter (two years old now). She just wanted a plain plywood box. I can't just do a plain plywood box. I hate stain, but she does not. She asked me to stain it the same color as her furniture. So, I ragged on a coat of Red Mahogany...
  9. Arts & Crafts Poster Frame

    We went to the Port Townsend, WA Wooden Boat Festival last year for my birthday. My girlfriend bought this poster with the understanding that I'd make a frame for it. I finally got around to it. Here's what I came up with, thanks to Dan's inspiration. I chickened out on the fancy scrollwork...
  10. Boat Bed Full Size | Custom

    This is a boat bed that was completed in November 2011. It is part of my Children's line of furniture It is one of four that I'm building at the same time. This customer requested custom color on the base. The portholes were an add-on and not usually on my standard version. For more...
  11. Oak mallet

    I made a table a while back with legs made from white oak. I laminated some 6/4 I had because I couldn't find a source of 12/4, and I made them a bit overlong in case the lamination wasn't perfect (usually its the ends that give me trouble). Well it ended up going pretty well, so I wound up...
  12. Every Long Bookcase | Custom

    This is an extra long bookcase that was build in June 2012. It measured 146". The first problem with that is it will not ship very easy. The second problem is it is not practicable to get 146" long material. What I did was to build that in section and have it to seam together after the...
  13. Quartersawn White Oak Extension Table

    This is a quartersawn white oak extension table. When closed, it measures 6' 4 1/4". When open, it measures 19' 4 1/4". I have thirteen one foot leaves. The center support is actually two, but when closed, appears to be one, so it actually has four sets of legs. The finish is yellow dye...
  14. The Better Beer Bottle Opener

    I imagine that some more industrious turner could use this general idea to make a bottle opener that resembled a baseball, football, hockey puck, soccer ball, etc… First I'd like to than the giants upon whose shoulders I stand: Paul - http://lumberjocks.com/projects/51035 Bob -...
  15. Guitar Stand

    My latest project, made for my youngest son. I put this together with White Ash and Walnut, with a polyacrylic finish. Rather than just something to hold his guitars, I wanted something that would display them. It came out better than I thought it would. Thought I would have to put some kind of...
  16. Morris Chair

    I have finally built myself a Morris Chair. I have wanted one for a long time and finally got around to doing something about it. The chair was built out of quarter sawn white oak picked for flecks and rays. The wood is very difficult to find around here and it took me awhile to accumulate...
  17. Sgian Dubh Presentation Box #2

    This is a commissioned piece I've been working on. It is a sgian dubh presentation box for a woman in Scotland to give to her fiance on their wedding day. It is a traditional Scottish wedding, with kilts and the like, so inside will be a custom sgian dubh made just for him (but not by me; by...
  18. Contemporary Dresser | Custom

    This is a dresser that was commissioned by a customer that was going to use it as a changing table. The brought in an example of something similar and we modified the size to fit their purpose for it. With it having a more of a dresser look the customer will be able to use it even after the...
  19. White Templeton Murphy Bed | Custom

    This a Murphy Wall bed that was completed on 10-2-2007. It is a twin size, which I don't do a lot of. It is in a style that I call the Templeton, named after the customer I built the first one for. This one is essentially our basic Murphy bed (Alpine) with some molding added to the face...
  20. Maple Workbench

    I decided to build a workbench for my dad because he has never really had a nice surface to work off of. So I started this project which is built from hard white maple. The top is 1 3/4" thick hard maple face glued in 1 3/4" sections. It is 30" wide and 72" long. The skirts are 3 1/2" maple. I...
