Picky cypress TV stand.

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Picky cypress TV stand.This little TV stand was built from repurposed cypress. The legs are 4X4 wall studs from a barn that my great grandfather built in the early 1920's. The top and shelf are from the same barn but must have been added as repairs later on, it's a little younger! The trim is from recently milled and cured cypress. The funny shape is because one end of the board I wanted to use had this screwy angle to it. I just matched the other side. There is no stain on this build! Only 3 coats of clear polyurethane. The older the wood was, the darker it became and it and just sucked up the clear coat! The difference in colors really popped! I was pleasantly surprised!
This stand is 50 wide at the top, 17 deep and 26 tall.

Flicker marquetry

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Flicker marquetryThis is one of my favorites. I think it took about 3 weeks. Size is about 17” x 19”. Ordinarily I would never think of staining walnut, but the color of the walnut I had just didn't work for the frame. I really like how it looked after I stained it with some walnut stain. The background is ash and after bookmark matching two pieces I thought it kind of looked like wings. The hickory I used for the tree had a knot in just the right place. It got kind of torn up while making the veneer so I had to do a little repair work on it.George

Knife box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Knife boxMy daughter is showing real interested in cooking so I got her some decent knives. To subtly remind her take them seriously, I made a box with her name. Since they are Japanese steel, I found the Japanese version of her name; nintai – Patience.The box is mahogany with a polycarbonate cover (more scratch resistant than acrylic). The knives I bought and cut a simple foam insert to hold them separate. It took three times to get the slots right. I still need to find my technique for my combo plows…

Quick Panel-finishing Setup When making frame-and-panel doors, my panels are finished before installing them into their frames. The fact that the edges will be tucked into the frames allows for a quick, easy setup that permits finishing both faces right …Source
