  1. Opposite Twin Coffee Tables - Xmas Present

    I made these coffee tables for my two sisters for Christmas. They are the exact same tables just stained opposite colors using red mahogany and golden oak stain. I got the plans from WOOD Magazine.
  2. Oak Rocking Chair - Xmas Present

    I made this rocking chair for my grandma for Christmas. I got the plans from WOOD Magazine. This chair can be use indoors or outdoors. I used an outdoor deck sealer on it and I also waxed and buffed it. This is my first chair I ever made.
  3. Dresser Project

    I FINALLY finished my dresser that I started in March on 2010. I used the plan in the Jan 2009 issue #188 of WOOD magazine. The dresser is Maple with several coats of Tried and True Varnish Oil. I learned a lot in this build. I have a six inch jointer. I did not want to have glued up drawer...
  4. 3-in-1 Crib for my Granddaughter

    Used the Wood magazine plans for this 3-in-1 crib. Daughter-in-law wanted it with white paint to match the 'theme'. I wan't real keen on the idea but used Quartersawn English brown oak veneer on the panels to add some 'real' wood to the project. I used poplar for all of the painted parts. A...
  5. Heirloom Cradle for 1st Grandchild

    I built this about 2 years ago for our first Grandchild. I wanted to build something that reflected the importance of this event in our lives and I have to say - it turned out very well. I searched long and hard for just the right plans and finally settled on the Heirloom Cradle featured in...
  6. Convertible Crib (Oak, modified from Wood Magazine)

    Here's yet another crib that leveraged the plans from Wood Magazine's 3-in-1 crib plans. This crib was made for our 7th grandchild, my youngest daughter's first! (A crib I had made in 2008 is still being used!) All the oak for the crib had been harvested previously (and air-dried for years)...
  7. Crib and changing table

    We're expecting our first little one, due in about 3 weeks from now, so I took the opportunity to try my hand at building some bigger furniture (have previously built a bench and bookcase). This was also the first project that I had used plans versus drawing things out myself and making...
  8. Wall Hung Mirror

    I built this Mirror frame that goes with the dresser I finished recently. The plan is from WOOD Magazine Jan 2009. It was a super easy build. It only took a weekend. I already started the matching bedside tables to complete my bedroom set.
  9. Two Jewelry Boxes

    September, 2011-These two jewelry boxes were inspired by the box featured in Wood Magazine, Dec/Jan 2009/2010, page 58. I decided to make some changes to the plans in Wood. For example, I used the Kreg pocket hole joinery to attach the sides to the top and bottom. Another change was to...
  10. Nightstand Project

    Here are the Maple Bedside tables that I built. I used the plan from Wood Magazine Nov 2008. My wife bought me the plan here. I made a few changes. I built one deep drawer instead of two shallow drawers and I made the top a bit smaller. I also used pocket screws instead of mortise and tenon...
  11. Brother's oak desk

    My brother and I managed to get this guy together based off of plans in Wood Magazine. Though we started when winter hit (and I only had a wood stove for the shop) we fought through and ended up with a very solidly built desk that I hope lasts him for many, many years. There is only glue...
  12. Plywood Scrap Sorter

    I have a white shelving unit in my shop and the bottom two shelves are covered with little scraps of plywood that I have salvaged from either my own projects or the craft center's free scrap pile at the local university. I decided I would like to have my shelves back for storing other things...
  13. Wood Magazine Tool Cabinet

    This was one of my first woodworking projects. I just wanted to throw up a picture of it for now, since there were a few others who were posting their version of the same project… I made some mods and I actually only went by the pictures I saw on the internet. It was only later that I picked up...
  14. Coffee Table from Wood Magazine

    Finally getting around to applying a finish to the coffee table from the plans in the Dec/Jan 08/09 issue of Wood magazine. So far I have a couple coats of red mahagony stain applied and it looks pretty even. Interesting thing with the camera I borrowed, it seems to have extended red...
  15. Cherry and walnut changing table

    This is a changing table/dresser I made for my son's nursery. It matches his crib, and is from the Wood Magazine plans. I made a few changes mainly on the drawer faces, instead of using plywood and framing it with trim as the plans call for, I used solid cherry. I rabbited walnut along the tops...
  16. Curved Arm Morris Chair!!!

    It's not really that exciting but it came together pretty good. I made it out of red oak and ended up staining it pretty dark. I used black cherry stain and covered it with several coats of poly. I got the plans out of Wood Magazine. Other than a few minor details, it is pretty much like the...
  17. Cherry 3 in 1 Crib

    This is my first large woodworking project and first post, it is the three in one crib from Wood Magazine that many of you have made. I started the project at the beginning of February, and finished with time to spare as my wife and I are expecting our first child in April. I pretty much...
  18. Bandsaw Reindeer

    Using the free plans from http://woodgears.ca/reindeer/plans.html I made this guy in about an hour of total time. I plan on making a bunch more to give away as Christmas gifts, this was the first one to get the technique down. Wood is from a scrap piece of 4×4 construction lumber resawed in...
  19. Wood Magazine Wine Box

    I made a few of these wine boxes from the December 2006/January 2007 (174) issue of Wood Magazine as gifts to my sister and her husband on their 30th wedding anniversary and gifts to others. The boxes are all cherry with a few coats of boiled linseed oil. I may experiment and add a coat of...
  20. Power Tool Tower Storage

    An awesome find from "Wood" mag! Of course the unit is fully complete until it gets a nice coat of my favorite colors, but for now, the storage is out performing my expectations! If you have a small shop, this is a project for you.
