Live Edge Bench by Blake

I have a good friend who gathers fallen trees, mills them and air dries them. He then makes furniture and other architectural things from them, a lot in the style of George Nakashima. He is currently sitting on 10,000 bd ft,  half two years air dried and mostly walnut and cherry.   I asked him to bring me some of his offcuts to help me get started in the shop. From what he gave me I made a live edge bench from walnut with a piece of birdseye maple for the trestle as an accent. I made this for the sun room in  my daughter’s home she is currently renovating.  I delivered this to her home here in Connecticut last night. The wood came from the Annapolis Md area.

Side Table by Dan

Here’s a side table I completed this spring. It’s my second furniture piece ever, and was a request from my girlfriend to complete our newly-remodeled guest bedroom. It was made using rough sawn silver maple which was milled locally here in PA.  Joinery is all dowels. The design was my own, with a rough mockup modeled in Sketchup on a Monday morning and by Tuesday afternoon I was applying finish. Not too shabby!

Coffee Table by Steve

The attached pictures are for a coffee table I made as a wedding gift for a friend. The entire table is made from scrap strips I reclaimed from the back of my hardwood. I was inspired by your picture bringing your secretary back to its roots so I took mine as close as I could get!

DVD Case/Stand by Caleb

Made out of recycled red oak that were used for doors of a cabinet and it was made using only hand tools

Making Ramp Mounts for my Trailer

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

  1. Hey Matt,

    Looks like you’re doing great! WWIA, and a wonderful picnic table on a great patio. And a big motor to play with. LOL! Take care!
