Farm Door Console Table and Matching Bookcases by Mike

Bedside Table by Jurre

I made it in my spare time between school and work. It is made entirely of oak, without finishing, so that the wood remains as natural as possible. It was the first time I made half-lap and dovetail joints. I’m proud of the result, but I will do it differently next time.

Box by Ben

A box I built for my Grandpa when his faithful German Shorthair Gunther passed away.  The box is made from Maple and Walnut.  This is my second attempt at hand cut dovetails and my first attempt at router based inlay.  Which I attempted after watching your dovetailing and router videos.  Finished with water based finished to preserve light maple finish.  More difficulty than my usual oil/poly finish.  Brusso hardware for the feet.

Crib by Joseph

The crib made from cherry and maple(most is curly maple but bad lighting doesn’t show it).  Domino joinery and aluminum pegs to take apart.  I then built a changing table out of cherry, ran out of maple to mix in.  To make it look different from any other changing table I’ve seen, i made it have a floating top.  It’s domino joinery as well but with arm-r-seal for finish.  Think they both turned out great especially since they’re my biggest pieces of furniture I’ve made and they weren’t made using someone’s step by step plans, actually drew them out on graph paper before building(I suck at sketch up).

I wanted aluminum ramps so they’d be lightweight and I bought some vs making them myself because after building this trailer, I just wanted to

Walnut Dressing Vanity Build

To start things off, I’ll make the panel which will become the sides and top. While that’s sitting in the clamps, I’ll prep the material
