Walnut Coffee Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Walnut Coffee TableThis is a table that my wife designed. It would have been fairly simple to make except for making it expandable and having a storage area for the extra leaf. She did a lot of designing to get it to clear the pulled out leg for removal and return. I wound up needing to rebuild the pullout and the hidden supports to get it to slide relatively easy. Not very smooth, but won't be opened that often. Got the idea of having the division on the end of the table rather than the middle of a furniture store. Which I tried to hide the gap with the design that was added to the ends. The design was redone once as the first one didn't work out very well visually.

Stringed bowl

Furnished content.

Stringed bowlThis bowl is strung with banjo strings. It was made for a friend that fell and lost some use of his left side. So while on the road to recovery he can use this as therapy to gain back some of the motor skill needed to play his stringed instruments. Bowl is cherry 11'' painted with acrylics
Enjoy

Turned Bottle Opener Using a Penny as Opening MechanismI designed these about 3 years ago and have been making them as holiday gifts, birthday/wedding gifts, etc. Choosing a penny with a specific date gives a great way to personalize it. People love receiving them.One of these is cherry, the other is soft maple from my yard.If you are interested in building one, I posted a video with complete instructions here: https://youtu.be/vy3nNAw2qToThanks for looking!
