Custom room w arts/crafts style furnitureClient started out wanting water damage in a wall repaired. Project morphed into LVP floor with radiant in floor heat. Trimmed entire room in 1/4sawn red oak. Removed old patio door and trimmed in 1/4sawn red oak with ashe threshold. He then wanted furniture for the room and this is the result. Wood is 1/4sawn red oak. Tables are a/c trestle style. Chairs are sized to room and table and made from 1/4sawn red oak. Not pictured is a matching desk. Table tops were book matched with dutchman inlays. Corner bench is also a cedar lined storage unit. Inside the corner where storage can be problematic to get to is a control unit for LED cove lighting going around the ceiling controlable via wifi. Also installed custom crown, again, 1/4sawn red oak.

Toboggan from years past

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Toboggan from years past24 years ago, on a weekend away from my new career as an air traffic controller, I purchased an inexpensive Craftsman 10 contractors saw. I made a couple of finger boards out of scrap 2×4. I found a local lumberyard and bought some 8/4 ash. Using the saw and finger boards to hold the ash to the fence and table I ripped off 16 7/16 thick 10' strips. Using a belt sander, I rounded the sides of each strip and removed the saw marks.I capped off a 3' section of old 4 PVC and filled it with hot water and fabric softener. Soaking the ash strips for about an hour, I bent them in a jig make of scrap 3/4 ply and 1 dowels tying each tip back to hold the curve while they dried. 12 survived.The next day I stained a few and began assembling the toboggan with scraps of oak as cleats. Countersinking brass screw into the ash from underneath and securing each runner to the oak. Some brass eye screws and chain to hold the curve nose. 3 coats of poly. I sewed the cushion filling it with an old closed cell sleeping pad.Over then next 10 years my kids and I wore out the ol' toboggan sliding many miles in the snow. I think of this as my first real woodworking project but then recall cutting up an old waterbed with a handsaw to make a bookcase. Building a truck bed insert out of plywood and old carpet. Probably others. Somewhere along the way I stumbled into enough skills to make my kids happy with a toboggan. No, I'm not a woodworker, but I can glue together some scrap and occasionally have a good time.

Pergola

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


PergolaClient's daughter was getting married and he wanted a 10×12 pergola for the reception, then his wife got involved. It grew to 16×22, LED dimmable lighting, 2 ceiling fans, outdoor TV, roll up sun shades, wifi, stereo, new handrails with LED dimmable lighting. All the LED, TV, stereo and fans are controlled via house wifi. Pergola is made from engineered 6×6, hand picked #1 prime pine, architectural accents by Ozco. Each post is anchored to a reinforced concrete pilar with stone veneer. I took the rafter tails from the cloud lift at the Thorsen house. Now he wants a mini version over the hot tube in the foreground…......
