    Just learning joinery, my interest is in Shaker style furniture making. My latest work was a console table in cherry and black walnut. With no design specifications, I built the table from a Pinterest photo.

    I made three of these shaker wall clocks and donated them to be auctioned off for veterans charities. All made from cherry.

    I wanted to make a new dinning room table at counter height, with a couple of leaves. My old table expanded to 60″x60″ so I used this as a starting point, building a base. I then started on the top which would slide onto the base. I used maple for the frame of the top and then used pieces of maple, oak, poplar, pine, cedar and oak plywood inlaid on the top I then started built a jig so that I could rout out the center pieces to a uniform depth and then started pouring in the resin. I finished it off with spraying a clear satin poly. after a couple of days drying, I put on some car wax and buffed it out. All together it took about 2 1/2 months to finish

    Great contrast! Do the drawers have anything to stop them from falling out when someone pulls them out beyond their safely held positions?

    Tired of all the wasted space under regular router tables so I built this which has LOTS of storage for bits, accessories, and other tools. Also very stable with 4 dual locking casters.

    Building a cigar box violin was an interesting way to learn about violin scale lengths and various dimensions that need to be followed in order to make a playable instrument. This was a fun thing to build, and it looks great up on the wall!

    I changed the angle of the seat and back and raised the height of the front of the seat and made the backs higher. This makes them easier to get out of and you can lean your head back on the backs.

    26 String Harpune
    A BeardedWonder Productions Production by
    BeardedWonder

    The harp took five or six weeks to construct in my car port with two or three hours a day four or five days a week spent. It took thirty to forty minutes of set up and put away and clean up for each session so only an hour and a half to two hours per session was actual working on the harp. It was slow and fun work as I have never made an instrument so complex.

    The harp has a thirty inch long sound board and is about forty two inches high. It is a Paraguayan style harp where the string are strung in the middle not on the left hand side as traditional folk and modern concert harps. This makes it lighter and easier to build as the stresses are all down the middle of the harp. You may have noticed that it use guitar tuners instead of tuning pins. Easier to tune and no wrench to drop or loose.
    John Kovac – Harpmaker 26 String Harpune kit for the hardware plans and strings. One bold and six screws and it is in pieces again.

    Your plan for a vegetable bin was a great idea to fill an open space in our kitchen counter. I had to modify the dimensions to fit the existing opening. The top bin serves as a bread box. Thanks, WGOA!

    This is my version of a bedside table my granddaughter made for me. She (9th grade when she made it) showed me how to make the top. It was great to see her interest in woodworking and learning a new technique from her.

    If your a beginner like me, I took handouts of power tools from veteran woodworkers and learned on them. Then added better tools as I went along. Took about a year to accumulate and build. But to me it was worth the wait.

    I had a well cover, for a dug well, that was chipping and cracking. I repaired that but decided I needed to completely cover it so I built a well cover.

    Commissioned by my neighbor to build this sofa table with a hidden compartment for keeping his “Home Defense” items concealed and safe. The drawer is activated by a RFID card when placed in just the right area. Neighbor gave me the +30 year old walnut stock to use because it was from his father which he lost recently. Sort of a memorial table with added security! Top has a maple inlay surround with matching leg pegs.

    1968 Dodge A108 camper van restoration project. The layout is similar to the original but much improved. The cabinet below the fridge contains a heating/air conditioning system out of a big rig truck. I’m now prepping it for paint after welding 45 feet of body seams.
