Patio Table Top by Jacob

This is a patio table top that I made for my neighbor. It’s made from cedar and is cut into a icosagon (20 sided). All the voids were filled with epoxy and finished with spar urethane.

Lounge Chair by Sevada

It’s made using quarter sawn white oak, dominos and splines for joinery.
Finished with tried and true original finish.
The leather cushion wraps around and snaps underneath the seat so the chair can be used with or without the cushion.

It’s not the most comfortable chair, but it’s my first chair design/build and I’m pretty happy with it. For version 2 I’d like to give the back rest a little curvature.


Bartop by Kraig

Here is a photo of an Ash bar top I just completed for a local restaurant in Knightstown, IN. The top is 20’ long and 24” wide. It was book matched on the butt end of the slabs. I finished it with 3 coats of clear epoxy. This was my first large epoxy pour and it turned out great!

Queen Anne Vanity Desk by Aaron

This is a Walnut  Queen Anne Style vanity and stool I made for a client. This client wanted something that looked like an antique piece her grandmother had, and this is what I came up with. The piece features hand-carved cabriole legs (my first time), hand-cut dovetailed drawers, and Antiqued Queen Anne hardware. I used poplar for my secondary wood. The desk is finished with amber shellac and lacquer.
