Warhammer by Scott

Sometimes you’ve got to build something ridiculous. Everything I’ve made has been for a specific purpose, and I figured it was time to build something simply because I thought it would be fun. Enter the Warhammer.

In all reality it’s more like a timberframing mallet, but it’s most likely never going to be used. It currently sits on my desk at work so I have a way to intimidate people to get their work done when they’re late.

Crib by Greg

My project is a crib I build for my son Ethan. It is built from hard maple and finished with waterlox. It contains 72 mortise and tenon joints; needless to say my next project will see me taking a break from those! It is able to be assembled/disassembled using dowels; the only hardware I used were a few metal L brackets to support the mattress frame.  I’ve only been serious about woodworking for about a year and I look forward to working more with hardwoods like this. It was definitely my most serious project to date and it is a joy to see my newborn son sleeping in it.

MCM Desk by Jim

Most of my stuff is Mid Century inspired but with a more handmade approach. The pics that I have attached is a desk I designed and built about a year ago. It is all solid walnut with maple drawer sides and zebra wood shop sawn veneer drawer fronts (which I’m sure you already knew that by the pics, lol). All the drawer and casework dovetails are cut by hand, as well as, the sculpted legs and handles.
