This is a desk I made in 2011, the top is a 2 inch thick walnut slab I got from ‘Wood From The Hood’ in Minneapolis, and finished it with a danish oil and varnish
A view of the legs on the desk, made of ash. I was attempting to make an enlarged version of the legs visible on the chair. Also note the dovetails on the apron corner.
A detail of the desktop, showing one of the butterfly keys I inserted to add a decorative touch, and hopefully minimize future splitting.
Another detail of the top.
This is a red cedar blanket chest that I made in 2008
A view inside the chest. I used a toybox hingeset to affix the top. The chest itself uses mortise and tenon joinery between the legs and frame members, while the panels sit in dadoes on the frame members and legs.
The panels- each was resawn and then bookmatched.
The panels on the other side.
A piano bench- walnut slab top and maple base.
A small maple writing desk, with walnut inlay strips and an accompanying chair, made of walnut and maple. The drawer has dovetailed corner joints, detailed above.
Mission style red oak coffee table and entertainment stand/bookshelf. Floating frame and panel tops, with through-tenons on the corners.
2 red oak benches I built a while back for an entryway and a radiator bench (with a mahogany veneer top, repurposed from an old entertainment console). Natural danish oil finish.
