Viewer Projects

Intarsia Tiger by Gary

Another intarsia project complete. This one was for my dad that he had been asking for for a couple of years and took 6 months to make.

Japanese Garden Bench by Evan

I am a 17 year old woodworker from Vancouver Island. This is my Japanese Garden Bench I made using alder and walnut and I used wedged through mortise and tenon jointery for the bench. This is my first project using this type of jointery and I am very happy on how it turned out.​​​​​​​​​

Mid-century Modern Credenza by Steve

– All solid Honduran Mahogany, except for the sliding doors, which are 1/8″ MDF panels that I covered with quartersawn mahogany veneer, and the back which is 1/4″ birch plywood.
– The case is joined with biscuits, and the legs, stretchers, and base rails are joined with mortises and tenons.
– The finish is 6 coats of Waterlox Original Sealer/Finish
– I’m especially happy with how the shadow gap/reveal turned out on the joints between the top and the sides of the case. Kind of a cool floating effect.

Writing Desk by Scott

The desk is a riff on a design my client saw at Pottery Barn but I dressed it up a bit and gave it some extra drawers. Material is soft maple and it has a heavy espresso stain, which I refuse to do again.
