    Small Krenov-style chest on stand

    Hi All, Just finished this small James Krenov style chest on stand. Dimensions are 16X16X48. I used some pretty nice burly/curly maple from Jack Murdoch in Rolesville and some old "barn walnut". The chest is small so I decided to do side-mount drawers since there's minimal space wasted on...

I got some curly maple from Jack Murdoch (Rolesville) a few years back. Some of it had mineral staining and I was going to cut that off...

    Grandmother Clock

    OK...this is weird. I had written a story about this clock but when I posted it...the words were gone:icon_scra Dunno what happened. Anyway my daughter put in a request for a Grandfather type clock only smaller (hence Grandmother clock) in an Arts and Crafts style. This what I came up...

    Grandmother Clock

    The description for this piece was deleted when it was posted (still can't figure out what I did wrong) I put the words into a separate post with the same title . That's why there are two posts with the same title and date. I did figure out how to rotate an image in my galllery (...

    Hi All, Bought my old Grizzly dust collector in 1991. turned it on yesterday and it just hummed,then turned very slowly up to speed.

    Art Wood (free)

    Hi All, I picked up these slabs eons ago thinking I would use them in some kind of wall art..wood tapestry etc. They've been kicking around the shop and it's pretty clear I'm never going to get around to using someone else might as well. They are bone dry. The cherry is pretty curly...

    I think the task lights developed by Charlie are way cool!!...but I guess I'm getting lazy in my old age.
