Image Uploading Suggestions

We appreciate your help in keeping our image gallery orderly and easy for others to research.

Please consider these suggestions while uploading your images.

 

  • Name your images before uploading to our gallery, the generic camera file names just look so messy. "Walnut Desk" looks so much better than "DSC19467je69.jpg". You can also name your images after you upload them to our gallery for your convenience.
  • After uploading your images, please consider adding a description so your viewers know what they are seeing and the wood used, the tools used, or even your inspiration for building the project.
  • Please consider tagging your images so our members and guests will be able to successfully search for your image and related images. Tags can be inserted into the "Tags" field. An example of tags and their names should be related to your project. If your project images are of a Walnut Desk with dovetail joinery, than tag the image with "Walnut", "Desk", "Dovetail" etc.

 

Thank you for your cooperation. :)

    This is a pine chest I made based on an American Woodworker issue that contained the plans to build this chest.
    The chest in the issue is a reproduction of the actual chest made by John Wheeler Geer in the 18th century. To see the actual plan set in the American Woodworker issue go to Connecticut Blanket Chest .
    I also built one in Curly Maple, I will post those images as well.

    Recently I have taken an interest in building Shaker furnishings, I have always loved it, but I am ready to build it.
    This album will contain all the furniture I will build in the Shaker style.
     
    Virtually any of the items I will be posting in this album are inspired from books written by Kerry Pierce. Mr. Pierce has created a variety of books on the shaker style, the history and culture of the Shaker community, and within the books there are detailed drawings for much of the work the Shakers produced.
    Here is a link to Kerry's site at Kerry Pierce Furniture and here is a link to his books at Kerry Pierce Books in Amazon . I highly recommend the books by Mr. Pierce, they are well made, and well priced as well.
     
    Just one of Kerry's books

     
    Thanks for visiting this album, and thanks for looking!

    I had built a bookcase from this plan when it was first published in Woodsmith maybe 20 years ago. That bookcase was built from oak, and I built it quite a bit larger than the plan, having shelves 48" wide. When we moved to a smaller house, that case was too large to fit in our much smaller rooms, so I built another one. This time using cherry it was built a lot closer to the plan, other than being made slightly shorter by making the capital a little less tall. The flutes on the column have a bullet point. I used a tip published in Wood (I think)  that's shown in the pictures.

    This corner cabinet is fairly well documented, I have 3 books and 1 magazine article describing it. If you've heard of the Wally Kunkel Dewalt RAS book (Mr. Sawdust), a sizable portion of it is devoted to building this cabinet, on an RAS of course. But I followed one of the Lonnie Bird articles and built this when we my wife asked for one about 4 years ago. It was probably as close to anything "heirloom" I'll ever build and was definitely the most fun project I've done. A lot of router table work to do the moldings, the top molding is built up of 9 pieces, the waist molding is 5. The doors were a lot of fun as well, my first time at true divided light doors.

    Needing a new cabinet for our TV, we were in an Amish furniture and saw one that looked like this. "That's the one we want" said my wife, with no lack of conviction at all in her voice. Problem is that one was walnut and we wanted cherry. A year later she asked me if I was going to build it, so i had no choice. Going on some very basic dimensions and only my memory (shudder) of what the original looked like I was able to put it together. This was a first in many ways. I built a complete full scale mockup out of cheap chinese ply to get the angles and overall size suited for us. Because it was a complicated glue up (due to size, the largest single piece I've built) I used liquid hide glue. Not shown in the photos was a stile I had to add to the center of the electronics bay. It worked well without that center stile (no sag) with the first TV we had, but an upgrade to a heavier one did cause 1/8" of sag in the center so I added the stile. Sad thing, we really liked that cabinet, but the house we bought earlier this year had no space suited for it and we gave it away.

    We needed new cabinets for the guest bath so I built these. They are loosely based on Norm's kitchen cabinets he did in a string of episodes. For me this was the very first painted project I had ever tackled, and the first time I had done doors/drawer fronts with applied moldings.

    Here's a representative sample of the kind of things that have kept me busy these last several years.

    This table has been all over the midwest, has appeared in Plenty Magazine, Wood Magazine, the Spring, 2015 insert called Midwest Living that got stuffed into the New York Times and the Washington Post, local NBC affiliate in Chicago as well as on MSNBC during a spot on using urban-sourced wood.

    It's made from urban-sourced ash from trees that were killed locally by the emerald ash borer, with walnut accents.

    Oak curio built from Indiana red oak.  My wife presented me with a picture of a similar curio and asked, "Can you build this?"   Well, I did and had a ball doing so.  The most expensive part of the curio was the glass and the mirror.

    Found an old maple log and cherry logs had them cut at a mill. I feel I did the wood justice.
    The maple log was curly and spaulted and, was able to get some fair quart sawn cherry for the chest.

The curves throughout the chair are power sculpted using a combination of ROS and a right angle grinder with a 60 grit disk and a Kutzall grinder attachment. The entire chair is sanded to 800 and buffed with a 1200 Abralon pad before the first coat of finish is applied.
