    Rail to headboard joint

    I love everything about wooden beds except for the creaking which typically comes from where the rails join the head and foot boards. In an attempt to eliminate, or at least minimize, this annoyance I joined the rails along the outer edge of the head and footboards using a single 16 degree...

    Nightstand from Front

    I decided that the nightstands should also be made from maple and cherry to match the bed but I had this idea of seeing a strip of cherry running vertically though each leg and the top with a second pair of running perpendicular though the top.

    Nightstand #1 Top

    To achieve the look of cherry flowing vertically though the piece I realized I first had to assemble the four sections where the grain runs parallel to each other than carefully crosscut the assembled panel to incorporate the 2 sections of cherry which run perpendicular to the grain. To ensure...

    Bed and Nightstands

    There are numerous reasons I enjoy building with wood one of them being the imperfections one finds. Many people I've spoken with refuse to incorporate any defects or flaws in the lumber into their project. Perhaps I am missing something but the variations in color, texture and grain direction...

    Foot board Cherry Panel Closeup 1

    The cherry board I picked up for the foot board is a good example of wood having character, in fact if ever there was a board that had an attitude I would say this would be it. Through the span of this single 7 inch tall board there are three distinct changes in direction of the grain, a...

    Riving maple...uses?

    Got around to riving some of the maple logs I had lying around. It looks beautiful, and it's a very satisfying feeling to see it go from log to lumber. I know a few logs are limb wood (thanks scsmith42), but the others seems to be from the main trunk. The first things that come to mind are a...

    A natural cane

    For my old age: I have made several walking sticks and canes, but I don't do 'bent wood', like the classic that is steam bent. (1/2 round perfect curve). I am especially proud of this one (and will most likely use this as the preferred 'stick' when I need it). The stick (inside, center)...

    Big maple burl bowl - FINISHED!

    I started turning the big maple burl piece. But first.....I got a little history on the piece of wood from the seller: "It is Western Big Leaf Maple. This tree was removed from a hillside in the Trask River Valley just east of Tillamook, Oregon. The Butt cut of the tree was 6 feet in...

    Myrtle wood bowl

    I just turned the bowl this weekend. It is Myrtle Wood from Oregon. The diameter is 10 3/4". Coincidentally, the piece right behind it showed up in the mail today, and the circle in the middle is the same diameter (and thickness). The wood behind is a piece of Maple Burl and the burl...
