  1. I recently had the privilege of traveling to Tennessee and learning how to make this chair from Charles Brock. It was an amazing experience and the things I learned there will help me for the rest of my life. Plus I came out with a beautiful chair!

    My son loves to play guitar and dabble with cooking. I thought this might fit the bill? Made of walnut, cherry and maple scrap material. He really loved it.

    9/16/14 - Bet you can't guess who I met today?! I'm a transplanted CA native and spent the last weekend in the Bay Area for my nephew's wedding. I have to fly home tomorrow so today I took the opportunity to meet a woodworking notable in his own environment. Unlike his online persona, he's a softspoken, almost shy guy who seems to be a little surprised by his celebrity status. I apologized to him for stopping by unannounced and he noted that it was a strange day as I was the second to have done so, the prior having been a couple from England! Thanks for taking the time, Steve, and the s

    This was my first time to mill my own lumber and If you have the opportunity and space to do so, do it! It was a blast. It's also way cool to watch your lumber come off the mill and stack and sticker it up. The hard part is waiting to use it.

    The top image is of an old cart axle I found during a site survey. While discussing the work with the client I noticed an axle at the back of the barn. I highlighted it and we had a chat about our firms roots in the wheelwright business. The next day the client phoned me and said he went into the barn, turned over the axle and found my name on it! I was delighted to find this as nearly all of the old carts are long gone. The old sign my Great Grandfather first sign he had made when he started the business in 1926. He completed a six year apprenticeship with a local business. He was then a w

    Here is my (almost) finished COD that just needs me to make a fit the drawer pulls. I've made this for some friends and you can't believe how many circles we have been around trying to decide on a suitable design for the pulls! Anyway we have now decided and this will be the last thing I do before I re-model my shop this summer (2012)

    Just a long shot of the lower shelf, the Glide and the parrallel guide. The Glide, the parrallel guide and the Sliding Dead Dude are all made from Tasmanian Pink Myrtle. It has approx. the same properties as far as stiffness, hardness, crushing, etc. as the soft maple.

    This engraved, solid cherry breadbox was a gift I made for my son's mother-in-law. The roll top door is made from interlocking pieces - no need for a canvas backing and is very flexible.
