Viewer Projects

Entertainment Stand by Tim

Oak slab top, walnut bow tie, hickory base/shelves.
Finished with arm-r-seal, bark included on top and one shelf (sealed with epoxy).
This was a much needed project to help organize all of the wiring under the TV in our den.   Built a slab flattening jig for this project.  A new challenge.

Vanity by Ricky

Hickory and walnut vanity with hammered copper sinks.  I milled the hickory for the top and doors myself from a fallen tree on my land with a homemade chainsaw mill and the walnut was all reclaimed.  The 2 butterfly’s are padauk.  The slab top is finished with 2 coats of epoxy.  Everything else got danish oil and lacquer.

Memory Box by Callum

I recently made this dovetailed memory box for my girlfriend with a hand letter punched plaque recessed into the lid. The box’s main body is walnut with an oak panel bottom and wenge panel for the lid. Dovetails were made using a combination of bandsaw and chisel work then fitted to together leaving the top and bottom floating in their rebates and then the whole piece was finished several coats of tung oil.

Walnut Trestle Table by Preston

I built a Walnut Trestle table heavily based off of a table by Andy Rawls (Watford Trestle Table).
