Bedroom Suite Repair/Refinish

This is a very old bedroom suite that belonged to the customer’s grandparents.  It had spent some time in a barn and veneer was pealing up on the sides and some was missing.  The tiger stripe veneer on the bottom was mostly missing and several pieces of the veneer were missing on the bed headboard.… Read More »

Kitchen Hutch – Oak

This Oak Kitchen Hutch was made as a traditional Kitchen Hutch, except the customer wanted maximum counter space so the attachment was eliminated.  I used corbels under the top to give the appearance  of being together.  The top section hung on the wall with the corbels under each end.   The glass used in the… Read More »

Walnut Book Case

This is one of two Walnut Library Book Shelves that I make for a customer.  This was my first attempt at using veneer to enhance the contrast.  You can not really see how this looks from the picture but the customer was very happy.  The customer furnished the walnut, it was cut from his Grandfather’s farm many… Read More »

Entertainment Center

This is a large three piece Entertainment Center that was built for my sister-in-law’s wedding gift.  The whole family pitched in and paid for the material and I supplied the labor.  They have put to good use displaying her many nick-knacks and his race cars models.

Hope Chest

This is an Oak Hope chest made for my Granddaughters Graduation.  The panels were made from the back side of a sheet of ¼ inch plywood that had a quarter sawn veneers, very interesting pattern.

Birch Desk

This was a Desk for my Sister to fit into a closet she had taken the door off and wanted to fit into the closet.  She is on fixed income and wanted it made as cheep as possible.  I used the $28 birch/maple plywood from HD and used TransTent dye to make it look like… Read More »

Corner Cabinet

This is a Corner Cabinet that was made to fit between the corner and a window.  The Lady wanted to display her Grandchildren’s pictures.  This was made from birch plywood stained to match the bedroom furniture.

Pine Hutch

This is the first major project I built some years back.  Raised the panels on the Radial Arm saw, also found out you must have the biscuits back from the edge of the board when you plan to raise the panel.  Notice the green paint covering the biscuits.

Pine Corner Hutch

This is a Pine Corner Hutch that I made to fit a small dinning room and match an existing table.  Used stock plans but reduced depth and width to fit their space.  This was built the first year I retired and was one of my first paying customers.

50 In. Entertainment Enclosure

This is a 50 inch Entertainment Center/Enclosure, for a lack of a better term.  The customer wanted a place to house the different component boxes used for the Home Entertainment Center.  This was built for the large rear-projection TV which were popular in the early 2000s as an alternative to more expensive LCD and plasma flat panels.

Dark Oak Desk

This was a Oak Desk stained a dark walnut to match a bedroom set for a friend of my dad’s.  She had moved and lost her built in desk and missed all the storage for bills and things.  This desk is made slightly narrow to fit her bedroom space.

Oak Book Case

Simple tall bookcase.  This was made to fit a space under the landing for the basement steps.

Bathroom Vanity

Bathroom Vanity with Large Drawers.  The customer wanted deep drawers with dividers and a 1/2 deep sliding tray over the dividers. Spent more time on drawers than I did on building the case.

Built in Bookcase Wall Unit

This was made for my wife, she had a lot of books.  We had a small room that was called a dining room, but was really too small to eat in.  We converted to an Office/Study room with one wall as built in bookcases.

5 Piece Entertainment Center

This is a 5 Piece Entertainment Center that I made for my Brother-In-Law.  The TV section has two slide out shelves behind the doors, one holds a record player and the other is for a kids game. The two units sitting beside the TV section house the speakers and a pull out drawer.

Sewing Center

This sewing center was made for my wife who was an avid quilt maker and hobbyist.  The oak was all from our builder that gave me all the off-fall from stair skirts.  The white panels are Tile Board ($9/Sheet) and the top is melamine wrapped in oak.  It has one file drawer and several smaller… Read More »
