Welcome to
Hope Chest

This Hope Chest is made of Oak. It is finished in Dark Mahogany and Satin Deft Lacquer. I have finished the inside with 1/4" slats of aromatic cedar. It measures 44" x 18" x 18".
Sign for a Band

I made this sign for a musical band who wanted something to hang-out on the porch of their house to let everyone know about them. They liked it so much they take it with them to their gigs thus declaring that venue as Their House for the night. The BFT stands for Bare Foot Texans. It is made of Cedar, the back is tongue & groove slats, the lettering was cut-out on my scroll saw, the trim is in 4 sections. I laquered the entire sign in High Gloss, and attached 2 eye-bolts to hang it from.
Bench Glider

I made this bench glider from pressure treated lumber. It is larger than most bench gliders and I had to modify the plans I have and put in some extra supports to make sure it would hold up any extra weight. It is designed to seat 3 and is about 80" wide.

You can see a semi-tutorial on how I made it

Pergola

I made this Pergola from pressure treated lumber. I blended it together with some Garden Screens my wife had purchased. I will be painting it in about 6 months once the pressure treated limber has throughly dried. This gives us the feeling of a small outdoor room.
Buckboard Wagon

I made this wagon out of pressure treated lumber. My wife wants to make it into a planter.
Adirondak Chairs

I made these Adirondak Chairs out of Cypress wood, Great wood to work with, mills-up easy. The foot rests are separte pieces
Garage Cabinets

I made these cabinets for our Garage Make-over. Now we have plenty of storage. They are made of yellow pine taht we primed and painted. There are 18 doors in all, some cabinets have extra shelving, some do not to allow for open area for storage.
Shadow Box Display Case

I made this shadow box to display a hand made dress that has been handed down through my family and it is over 125 years old. The shadow box is made of Oak with a hinged glass door to keep the dress dust free.
Kitchen Island

I made this Kitchen Island for our house. It is made from clear pine because we decided to paint it instead of using stain. All the joints are done using pocket joinery using my Kreg Jig. It is amazing how easy the Kreg Jig makes excellent joints, all the joinery is hidden. I don't do turnings so I glued-up the blanks for the legs and had them turned by a fellow woodworker. The butcher block top was cut down from one that was 5 1/2" thick, the top here is 2" thick. No plan on this one, just had a picture of a kitchen island to go by, made some modifications for my version. I will post a tutorial page in my How I Made It section soon so you can see the picture I was working from and the steps on construction.
Bench Glider w/Cup Holders

I made this Bench Glider out of Cypress wood, Great wood to work with, mills-up easy. Cup holders were an added extra that is really functional.
