I have a CPAP machine for OSA and my nightstand doesn’t have enough room for the machine and a clock. The CPAP has to be lower than the top of the mattress for safety reasons. I also got one of those memory foam mattress pads and now my nightstand is way too low. My current nightstand has two drawers which I like. So what I want is:- Nightstand as tall as the bed- Shelf for CPAP machine- Hole in side of stand for CPAP hose- Two drawers- Back behind drawers,but no back behind CPAP (ma...
After finishing a windows seat/banquette in my kitchen, I needed a table to go in front of it. For the design, I want several things: - single pedestal- split top to accommodate leaves- mission style, qtr sawn white oak- octagonal top I’d been hunting around for some plans and ideas, and none were exactly what I wanted. Two sources were… - plans I’d bought from Woodmagazine.com for a “Mission Dining Table”. It shows great info on making the octagonal top...

We continue on with the build and get our dados sorted out.
Finally finished up the first two: And just in time as it seems our friends are all having babies at once. So I’m trying some others and practicing on the lathe.

I then filled th...

So I found some pictures of wooden rattles online and thought I’d try to do something like that. I bought my first lathe last winter and have not put much time into it, I thought these might be good ways to practice tuning. I turned some dowels and then cut them in half with the band saw. Then I used a few different forstner bits to hollow out the ends. Dropped in dried beans and rice and glued them shut then sanded them smooth. This is after two coats of salad bowl finish an...
Took advantage of a drive back from New York to stop at Craftsman Farms. I was with another person and couldn’t stay until the Stickley Museum opened. I did get to gaze into some of the windows. Saw a cool couch/settle. Saw a Morris Chair (I am in love with these chairs). The grounds are well kept up. I will go back when I take another trip to NY.
