  1. Loft Beds, window seats, desk w/drawers

    I was commissioned back on November 7th 2017 to build furniture for a family. I just finished the install yesterday. I built 3 giant oak loft beds, 2 oak window seats, and an oak desk with a 3 drawer bank. Took forever but I have never seen a family as happy as they were! Made all them hours...
  2. Built-in Bookcases and Bench

    As you can see from the before picture, our office needed a lot of attention. I used the plans from this website (https://nestingwithgrace.com/how-to-build-a-window-seat-and-built-in-bookcase-tutorial/) as a starting point and deviated as required. Used MDF for everything. Four of the shelves on...
  3. Floor to ceiling bookcase and window seat with storage

    This is a built-in floor to ceiling bookcase with window seat that I added to my daughters room back in 2008. This system also spans the full width of the wall too. This was the last picture I took as as you can see the window seat still was not all painted. the bookcases are trimmed at the top...
  4. Mission Style / Art and Crafts Window Bench

    Mission style window bench. Quarter-sawn white oak with mortise-and-tenon joinery. No real plans with this one; I just designed it as I went along. Overall I'm pretty happy with the design though. I stained it with Minwax Early American like my nightstand, but I wasn't as happy with the color...
  5. Bay Window Breakfast Nook

    I made this for my brother's house. It was my first carpentry project, and I approached it with no clue what I was doing and just tried to figure it out as I went along. I was stuck for awhile on the seats. I was trying to cut 5 trapezoid-shaped pieces, but couldn't get the angles exactly...
  6. Extraordinarily Simple

    As simple as this project looks, it was not. The first conception came with the word "symmetric," but as you will soon discover from the initial design and what it replaced, it wasn't so simple. I had to battle with the purpose of a 7" wide space between the window and the wall. What could I do...
  7. Window Seat

    First major woodworking project and first project posted here, so hey everybody! Started out with a barren bay window that frankly was just a lot of wasted space. Got some inspiration from the awesome projects here, did a couple Google Sketch-ups for the design, and went to town! It was...
  8. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    So I'm hooking up my new dust collector and after much reading it seems apparent that 6" pipe would be best. Local availability of heavy guage metal ducts seems non existent, as does pvc. So while at Home Depot the other day I noticed 6" Sono Tubes for about $8 each. I only need about 15 feet...
  9. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I just recently joined through my iPhone and have been dissapointed with the continuing glitches from getting bumped off and having to constantly resign-in to my photo upload being horizontal, losing my lengthy intro in my profile, to not being able to reach out to members directly without...
  10. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hello all, I was in my doctors office the other week and he had a chair in there that I liked the look of. I asked him about it and he told me it was a "Barcelona chair". The next time he was there he let me take some measurements so now I have a pretty detailed knowledge of the physical...
