  1. Arts and Crafts Nightstands

    Here are my arts and crafts nightstands in quartersawn red oak. They feature one small, over two large drawers with storage in mind. The lower assembly is built with through tenons and double walnut pegs. Drawers are dovetailed, with poplar and aromatic cedar used as secondary woods. Side...
  2. Cherry Trundle Bed

    My son needed a new twin sized bed, so we decided to build him a cherry trundle frame. It became a father and son project, and my wife helped a great deal as well. The headboard and footboard feature gently curved stiles, and solid cherry panel construction. A pair of xenon pucks offer just...
  3. A & C Wedge and Strap Bed

    Here is my arts and crafts style Wedge and Strap bed, named for the backsplash detail. It is designed to look like a wedge driven laterally to tighten a leather strap, but is actually a walnut inlay. The headboard and footboard feature angled stiles and solid frame and panel construction. The...
  4. Keyhole Mantel

    This is my Keyhole Mantel, so named for the walnut inlay modeled after an early 1900's skeleton keyhole. I started with a Montauk black slate hearth, and added strong arts and crafts lines with quartersawn white oak. The posts are made with locking miter joints. If you've never had the...
  5. Wedge and Strap Arts and Crafts Dresser

    Here is my interpretation of an arts and crafts 6 drawer dresser. Although it shares some design features with the Harvey Ellis 9 drawer dresser and the Gustav Stickley #906, I added a wedge and strap detail on the tapered backsplash. It is designed to look like a leather strap tightened by a...
  6. Arts and Crafts Entertainment Center / Sideboard

    Here is my arts and crafts entertainment center, which is reminiscent of a Stickley sideboard. The design of the central splat detail gives a nod to Kevin Rodel. The backsplash features my "Wedge and Strap" detail, which is designed to look like a wedge driven laterally to tighten a leather...
  7. Arts and Crafts Library Desk - AKA the Bullet Desk

    This is a QSWO library desk I built for my son's room. It is inspired by a Stickley library table, which I scaled down as a small desk. Most of the period A&C desks have a large lower shelf, however I modified the design for more leg room. We found a board with a bullet lodged in it, and...

    Frame components and tabletop I wanted to design an arts and crafts dining table that included arched rails and twin keyed tenons. I like several of the Stickley tables, but wanted something original. I like the feel of Keven Rodel's Talesien desk, which served as inspiration for this table...

  14. Wood & Lumber
    I picked up about 25 boards the other day in a fantastic Craig's List find. Problem is, I can't ID wood to save my life. I'm hoping some more knowledgeable jocks can help? I believe that the haul may have included oak, cherry, walnut, sassafras, and maple - but I don't know for sure. Fair...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am wondering if anybody would offer some comments on the Jet 208HH. The reviewers on Amazon are very positive regarding the 208HH but otherwise there's not a lot of info out there about it. It sure looks a lot like the PM 209HH other than a few small details. Then it's only a couple hundred...
