  1. As a child growing up I remember in a few homes I would visit there were these wonderful furnishings with these really beautiful dovetail designs typically on the surface of the furnishings. I had not thought much about it because in the early 70's it wasn't hard to find or view quality furnishings, it was taken for granted. Homes were still filled with the "good stuff" from the 19th century on up through the mid 20th century. As a child I did not know what I was seeing, because it was so normal. But now looking back at the homes I would visit with my parents, to visit friends, relatives, cocktail parties etc, within those homes were some really beautiful furniture! One of the furnishings that seemed popular and I remember specifically two homes we would frequent that had the Lane furnishings within. Lately I have been perusing Facebook Marketplace and Scandinavian and Mid Century is all the rave, again, and I am happy to see it coming back. I love that time period and style. It's known as MCM furnishings, or Mid Century Modern. I have always been pulled to that design and style, one of the reasons I embarked on my sculpted rocking chair builds awhile back. I do believe, correct me if I am wrong, but I think Lane started out as a box and blanket chest maker in the early 1900's. Their cedar lined chests are in abundance in the classifieds, beautiful today as they were then. Here are a few of the Lane Acclaim Series of furnishings I remember as a child, very cool, I still love it! From the little research I have done, I am not sure if this style was produced mainly in the 70's or earlier. I know many of you remember this style.

  2. So wife asked me last week to make her a coffee table. On the way to my grandson soccer game we stopped by Woodcraft and found a 52x13 Sirari slab that she liked. It is Sirari. Never worked with this type before. This project will let me learn how to epoxy fill worm holes and work with live edge. Should be fun….
  3. One of our members asked me recently why he hadn't seen any pictures of my work. I told him it's because I've never taken pictures until recently. Just never thought anyone would want to see 'em! But I did have a couple of items still kicking around. A friend asked for some bird houses about three years ago, and these two were "leftovers" in more ways than one... leftover 1x12 roof boards, plus I made more than she had a use for. The coffee table is just a TAD older, by about 50 years! The design was a high school shop project, and since I had few tools and no workshop, I persuaded my shop teacher to let me make a second one after classes. This one was given to my sister, who returned it when they downsized after retirement. The other one, slightly longer, is still in daily use in a brother-in-law's home. Just remembered I had one more project still in my possession. Tried decoy carving about 35 years ago. Mostly miniatures for gifts, and this was the only full-size one I carved. Still have two rough-outs in the shop... maybe one of these days? John

    This is a scanned document of the now defunct Workbench Magazine of this era. Permission was granted by the new Workbench Publication for The Patriot Woodworker community to copy and use the old Workbench Magazine at our pleasure, and for free distribution and re-use. I love cobblers benches, dad made one many years ago for uncle, and it turned out to be the discussion of many a party and get together. You can use the cobblers bench for a coffee table, end table, or even to work on in a real life working environment. The schematics of this plan are good, they assume the builder already has a grasp on the fundamentals of woodworking. Have fun!

    Activity Table

    From the album: Pine Is Fine Custom Cabinets and Furniture

    This little beauty is made from pine. The legs are handcrafted from Douglas Fir and hand shaped. I made this to be a activity table for a kids room. The top will be coated with a chalkboard paint for hours of fun. Afterwards when the child grows up, they can either leave that way for their kids or change out the top for a gorgeous coffee table.
  6. Had a request for a coffee table, and thought it was a good opportunity to use some reclaimed lumber and auction finds. The pine top cleaned up from several old boards that came as extras from some walnut I bought at an auction, and the legs came from another auction. The phone image doesn't show the color contrast as well as I'd hoped, but the darker legs really set off the amber of the pine once I was done with the third coat of poly. Will
