Sunny’s Sofa

Actually, it's more of a divan than a sofa, and the first time I've built a sofa in all my years of woodworking. Long ago I had a…

Credenza Done

Here are some photos of the completed (minus the marble top) credenza. It looks bottom heavy without the top, but maybe I'll get a few shots later that…

Credenza with Composites

Here's a new project. This credenza, designed by Tony Kramer is to fit into a niche. This will be the first time I am using composition appliqués or…

Ladders

I’ve never once considered the chair’s feelings.

I was only pretending that a broken wrist wouldn't slow me down, what an optimist! While it has not stopped the Painted Shelf job it has slowed things…

Painted Shelves

Here is another CustomMade project, thankfully this one is local and it's not swamped from a Christmas rush so I don't have to deal with missing mail orders,…

CustomMade.com

I thought I'd try out CustomMade, so far no luck, but it certainly has helped in brushing up my bids. And I'm slowly putting up bits of my portfolio…

Just in time for Thanksgiving!

This design is about as simple as it gets, but I think the proportions came out very well. Something most people don't consider is that once a table…

Birdseye

This little table, "Reta's Oval", turned out to be not so diminutive in terms of construction. It's been a while since I've done any curved work, and it…

Probably a Belt Sander Fetish

We have two of these giant first aid kits packed with odd and unusual items that I'm not prepared to use, maybe the tracheotomy tube. Dad was an…

They Do Go BOING

Mara does some of the most intriguing finishes on abused and thrown away furniture. I've seen her turn a rotted MDF case into a piece of art. Here's Mara:…

Yes, everything is an emergency, maybe I should change the name of the company? Mara is on the verge of getting large amounts of antique (by American standards)…

Emergency Wedding Furniture

Aren't all weddings emergencies? In this case my customer needs a cypress sink base and he has the cypress. About 15 hours later we had our piece. No…

This from Mara: "It has taken me 10 years to make a saddle for my fruit bowl. It is a fresnel lens [From a street lamp] from the…
