I’m calling it a folded cube because it’s supposed to look folded, and it’s a cube. I’m open to better names :) Made this table/stool with my daughter. No finish yet as it was due this morning and we didn’t start until late afternoon yesterday. It was one her design school projects. The design and design process are what’s important. I think it turned out very well considering all the miters. The top has 4 sides mitered. Four of the leg pieces have 3...
Mr Customer finally decided on poplar for his reading table, which is actually a gift for his daughter. As I mentioned when I posted the pictures of the Wife’s reading table, which is made of dimensional lumber and finished with sanding sealer and Poly, like a cabinet, he and his daughter liked the table and the have been bugging me to build one like it for four years. I finally got the hint and the material is now warming up in my shop. Because he is paying good money for a piece of...
Projects come, projects stay. I walked around the shop one day to count the projects I had started only to put down for one reason or another. I got depressed by the number 20. Unfinished for any number of reasons. I cut a panel too short on one. I wasn’t sure of the curve of another. Not hard to make a new panel, 0r try to mock up the curve. That logic does not fly in the face of a simple defeat. I just let the projects linger, go to your corner. What is it that stumps me? Probably this ...
In the not-too-distant past, a young lady and her new husband spotted a ‘farm house table’ project on Pinterest and thought about building it for their new house. A family member recommended me as someone who might be interested in completing the project for them. It’s the first thing I’ve ever quoted and been paid to make in my shop. Going through the estimating process was introspective, in a way; deciding how long it would take to build vs. actual, billable time was something I’d ne...

Think of afternoons in the vineyards of Bordeaux, a leisurely stroll on the French Riviera, or a cafe’ au lait in a Parisian cafe. No one lives as well as the French. Art, romance, fine food, and wines, the French know how to make life beautiful and comfortable. Their sensibility emanates from their homes where they enjoy furnishings and decorative arts that span centuries of great style. From Medieval times to the present, there is much to know about how to identify the distinctive loo...
Here’s the final video of the series! Check it out here. Hope you guys like it! I didn’t get any footage of making the tusks for the center beam or the finishing work. The semester was quickly coming to an end and what time I had for recording was lost. Hope you’re not too disappointed.
The second YouTube video is up! Check it out here
By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) View the original article here. In the above video you’ll see the amazing 17th Century English timber frame farmhouse that I visited recently. I was absolutely taken back by this immaculately reconstructed farmhouse and it’s gorgeous reproduction furniture from the 1600′s. So, of course, I had to share it with y’all! The farm was moved from England to the Frontier Culture Museum in historical Staunton, Virginia (thank yo...
This is a blog on creating this project. After making my Shop stool I have gotten a lot of interest and questions like “can you make me one as well?” and “is it possible to make it from a light wood?” Inspired from several people here that talk about making money on their woodwork I thought it would be usefull to make another stool experimenting with methods to potentially make it more production friendly. Other than that i set up 3 goals:- It should be made from...
