My first dresser from recycled oak This was the first dresser that I made from a huge oak pallet. All the details are the same as the second except all the exposed wood is the recycled oak. You can read the details in the post on the second one.
This one was for my youngest daughter and was completed 3-4 years ago.

Circus tent ? box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Circus tent ? boxThe NSO, SSO combination goes over well with the golf ladies,
so here it is yet again. (helps that we have plenty)Making and fitting those radial stripes: never again !
Except that I have about 12 leftover 5-stripe
(dark,light,dark,light,dark) assemblies leftover
and all I have to do is pick 8, make 8 light stripes
to put between, and stick them together. Yeah, right.Oh, and make the center octagon, of which this box has a
nice piece with not a knot, but some other non-linear grain,
and I cannot find another non-linear piece for another center.The making of the rest is not too arduous.
Even making rebates in the center and lid's light stripe,
because those 5-piece striped assemblies already have tenons,
is not hard.
Even sawing the vertical corners of the box-body to
22.5 degrees is not too bad.
But that fitting of all the radial stripes is a PITA.Forgot to say: it is about 18cm across

The Art of Michael Ferris

Furnished content.
(from Popularwoodworking.com)


A look into the larger-than-life. Sometimes inspiration comes from the strangest places. Take a tree stump bust and an inlay backgammon table for example. Two very different woodworking mediums that couldn't be further apart, but for artist Michael Ferris it's …Source

Dresser for my daughter

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Dresser for my daughter This is the second dresser I have made for my daughters. It's made from recycled oak and hickory. The black holes that you see are the bolt holes form a huge pallet I drug home. The top and bottom of the pallet were 2 x 6 net rough sawn oak and the stringers were 4x8 it was almost enough to get through two dressers. I also had several hundred feet of 7/8 x 4 net finished what I thought was oak. After I had it all milled up I realized that was hickory. Luckily a coat of watco stain was the great equalizer and it all passes for oak. You can see the hickory in the corner posts.
The sides are a 3/8 panel set in dados in the corner posts and the 5/4×2 horizontals. The horizontals are cut like a tendon so that the sides all stacked. The drawers are 1×8 white wood with dovetailed corners and dadoed in bottoms. The drawer slides are full extension ball bering 100# slides . The knobs my daughter picked out.
It's stained with Watco dark walnut danish oil. The final finish is 3 coats of satin polyurethane.
Finished size is 18 deep, 36 wide and 54 tall. The top is an inch larger on 3 sides.
It's been a lot of fun and hopefully it's something she will hang onto and remember me.
Sorry the pictures are laying sideways.
