BEFORE I am finally finished my shuffle board table. I was asked to re-finish a table that had been in the cool, damp basement for about 15 years. I thought, why not, I have re-finished dining room tables, furniture kitchen cabinets.THIS one took awhile. The boards were cupped, I was able to rescrew and straighten that. Some boards were separating, I was able to fill that. I was able to get the table level both directions, the top was smooth and flat.I applied several coats of poly. P...
Awhile ago I found out I was going to be a first time grandpa! My daughter and son-in-law had been trying to have kids for over 5 years. They did all the tests, and fertility things. She found out she was pregnant (for real and not just “chemically”) in November of 2014. I knew then that I wanted to make something for them to keep in our family for a long time.

This Thorsen House cabinet repro is probably the third large-scale Greene & Greene project I’ve worked on in addition to numerous smaller lighting items. Common to the lot of them are masses of Ebony splines and plugs. Lots of information exists on people’s own ideas of how to pillow, round, shape, soften and relieve simple square plugs.

I also finally got around to cleaning getting my Stanl...
I saw this picture of the Ninja Turtles in Minions getupMy grandson who is four loves both. So the head scratching begins, how could I make something safe and yet had the ability to be changed later when another favorite comes along. I wanted to make a photo frame with no removable parts a child could get into so I decided on two halves pocket hole screwed together. This is the final product assembled and waxed Construction: I needed a routing frame the same size as the...

Finished cutting the mortises and everything fit pretty well. Just had to run the rasp over a couple of the joints to level everything first. Then got the sides all glued up. Diagonal measurements are the same – square overall. This one is coming out better than the first one (so far). Just more pictures of each of the square mortise/tenons.
