Initially the concept was to surround the model with railing that took on the shape of the cathedral. So I extended the lines of geometry to the surrounding railing. This gave me a starting point. The first plan was drawn in 1980. This is what it looked like. The railing was attached to a single table, The table was built in 82 w/o the rail detail, I did not have walnut wood at the time. The rail detail was to house light in a position that would be hidden but functional....
After seeing all the fine scroll saw work on this site I wanted to share some pictures of a bowl that I acquired from a consignment shop where I sell furniture and other things that I build. First off let me be clear, I DID NOT MAKE THIS BOWL. I contacted Martin and he said this was the place for it, just credit the author. I do not know who made this bowl. The story from the consignment shop owner is it belonged to some fellow and had been handed down thourgh t...
I saw the five pointed star posted a few days ago and wanted to post a picture of a Jewish star that I am working on. I need to sand and finish it. It was a challenge to get the angles right. If you rotate it, it looks really neat. More pics in a few days when it is finished.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #234: A Rocky Start - But It Will Get Better, Right?
Today is already one of ‘those days’. Within the first hour of getting out of bed, I already found several mishaps that I had to deal with. First of all, I came to my computer to read my mail and I noticed my Wacom pen tablet wasn’t working. At first I thought nothing of it, as the USB plug sometimes pulls out a bit and just needs to be pushed in. But that wasn’t the case. Upon further inspection, I realized that my cat Coco had chewed through the wire. She goe...
I spent most of the day yesterday cutting out the two new candle trays. I can honestly say that it was quite a pleasure to do so. Many times people say that they wouldn’t want to do woodworking for a living because it will take the fun out of it. I can see their point, but for myself, it is an extra bonus to be able to get paid for doing something that you absolutely love to do. I suppose that is why I am here. :) There are so many different aspects to the business of woodworking t...
We have the honor of creating these beautiful Methodist flames to be placed on the back wall, behind the sanctuary stage. Constructed of solid red oak hardwoods, the overall sizes of the flames are 3” thick by 48”wide and 168” long. The oak was glued together at different angles, to create a unique woodgrain appearance. Hand shaping and carved using a power grinder to create the flame motif. Stained with a red aniline dye and finished with a pre-catalyzed furniture fin...
I’ve been slowly working on building a modified captain’s bed for my 3 year old daughter. I thought I’d document some of the progress here. It’s been a fun project so far and my wife is itching for me to get it completed. This is the initial concept that I came up with after seeing a similar bed in a local furniture store. Lauren’s room isn’t very large, so having some storage under the bed is really a bonus. Lauren outgrew her crib and small b...
