I've always enjoyed working with wood but was never to
serious about it until the last few years.
After building the small 8X10 shed I used for a shop I built a few birdhouses
and some toys
for the grandkids. It was just the confidence builder I needed to venture
into bigger and better
things. For the first couple of years I only used pine from the borg. I was
afraid I would mess up
any expensive wood. Below are some of the projects I've made starting from
the beginning till now.
I built these for our grandchildren for Christmas a couple of
years ago. They weren't perfect but
enough to get me permanently hooked on woodworking.
Then I ventured out to build a small table with 2 drawers. As
I look back on it I see lots of things
I'd do different but still kinda proud of my first furniture piece. I didn't
have enough room in
the shed/shop so I had to do the glue ups inside.
I built these shelves for my daughters this past Christmas
(can't find the picture of the third one) and
built this cradle for our youngest granddaughter who was 2.
I built SWMBO this oak coffee table with a tile inlay as a
belated Christmas present.
I'm now working on a Curio cabinet, I have the main cabinet
done and doors assembled.
I'm just waiting on the hardware and then order the glass for it.
Here's where I'm at so far. Finally got it finished. We put a few things in it
to see how it looks.
Below are projects built as Christmas gifts to my wife and daughters
sofa table and coffee table were built out of quatersawn white oak
and finished with Rockler's
Mission gel stain then a top coat of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal urethane top
The first part of the entertainment center was built of white oak
with a oak bead board back.
Then finished the same as the tables. I still have to built the other side and
the cross shelf.
The trash container was birch plywood and oak and finished with several
coats of amber shellac and topped
with General Finishes top coat.
The plate rack was built from quartersawn white oak which had strange but
beautiful circular rays.
The clock I built for the owner of the dealership and it is white oak and
finished with a waterbase dye and
General Finishes top coat.
