Last summer I started building two queen sized beds, incorporating Arts and Crafts elements. I used quarter sawn white oak, using 6/4 thickness. I resawed and sized the panels myself. This was...
This cradle is an original design, though was inspired and adapted from a plan in Wood mag. I wanted to build a functional cradle, that also fit my home. I wanted it to follow Stickley's mission...
I built this table a second time for our house. Built out of quarter sawn white oak I had harvested off of land that we own. Oak, I've discovered, is a bit of a challenge in some ways but well...

This Modified Craftsman Coffee Table is based on the design of the coffee table shown in Fine Woodworking, April 1994, No. 105. page 84, Coffee Table Is Spare and Sturdy, by Lars MikkelsenThe...

Custom-forged hinges are the final touch on a middle earth-inspired cabinet.
