Handtool Secret Santa

December 25, 2009

3

Even woodworkers need Christmas presents… For the last couple of years I have organised a secret santa for handtool enthusiasts on the woodworking internet forum I belong to. Its a bit of fun and also means that amongst the socks and bath salts, this little group of woodworkers gets a tool related gift from one […]

Let it all dangle

December 12, 2009

This jewellery stand in American Black Walnut and Oak was requested by our Sister in Law, to allow her to hang up necklaces and other jewellery items. This is her birthday gift, which will be delivered today. The scalloped base also provides a home for those smaller items needing a home on the dressing table. […]

Fully Stocked

Well quite often tables in my case – it seems to be something I make a lot of. These Oak tables were made in a group of 6 to take some advantage of batch production. Interestingly the tops and stretcher rails are made from recycled library shelves given to me by a friend, who received […]

Maple Console Table

June 2, 2009

This console table in Canadian Maple was designed to sit on the landing at the top of a staircase, hence its very shallow depth. The subtle curves of the leg and the centre rail give a simple elegance, while the through wedged tenons provide some detail to punctuate the form.                                        […]
