Previously I mostly did DIY projects around the house, but over the past couple of years have upgraded equipment adding a planer, jointer, SCMS, router table, dovetail jig, and a cabinet saw.
Not sure if I will ever be skilled enough or have the patience for big furniture projects but I am certainly enjoying building some smaller ones and pleased with the results.
I enjoy projects done in the workshop, and been slowly getting my shop and tools organized.
Projects have been multi-level deck and stairs, built in bookcases, fireplace mantle, storage shed, small tables, picture frames, jewelry boxes, and a coffee table.

Finally have gotten back into the shop and out of the garden tasks for a few days anyway. So after dry fitting the coffee table base and cutting the mortise for the shelf, I milled and glued up the shelf and cut the through tenons and fit them...
So worked in the yard this weekend while the weather was cool, but did get a little shop time in both days. Saturday laid out the cuts for the thru tenons for the shelf on the coffee table. First time I have cut a thru tenon for a project. W...

I started a Arts and Crafts coffee table that I saw in last month’s issue of Fine WWking. Gregory Paolini has a series of videos on the Fine Wwking site on building the table. This works out nicely for me as it is a wedding present for my...
