Coffee Table inspired by Paul’s FootStool and breadboard Series. Made out of Walnut and Cherry. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the leg alignment right 🙁 but still I’m pleased with how its finished.
I used a combination of construction techniques from Paul’s Tool Chest as well as several housing dados for the interior. The idea to make this came from a flimsy, mass produced globe bar a friend had purchased. After looking around for something better, I found something similar to this and decided to give it a try. Thanks Paul! I couldn’t have done it without you. It is made from red oak which has been stained with a final finish of shellac
small table inspired on the three legged stool from the artisan course. The wood is pine, the tabletop is finished with linseedoil and reddish pigments. sizes: hight 440 mm, tabletop 415mm x115mm x10mm. I made it a few years ago for my friend who asked for a small table by a low chair. thanks Paul for your inspiration. Antonia
I designed this to be a multi-purpose desk to use while laying in bed or on the couch. Oak frame with alternating oak/sycamore desktop and purpleheart banding.

My 17 year old daughter wanted a long board, so I suggested that we should just make one. We bought rough sawn lumber, using hand tools we cut, planed, and glue-up an over sized panel. Then finished the final shaped with chisels, #4 smoothing plane (for the round overs), and scrapers. We used shellac to seal the hickory, mahogany, and basswood. Then used oil-based out door poly to add protection.

A pair of driveway gates made from 5 x 2 par pine and t&g. These gates were made using half lap joinery before being taught the art of mortice and tenon joints. The front of the gates got at least 3 coats of 5 year wood stain while the back only got 2 coats. They have been built for five years now these were my fist project and still they work just fine.

My family recently returned from vacation in the Smokey Mountains(NC, USA). While there, they bought firewood to heat the cabin. My Uncle saw the fresh cut walnut and brought me back 4 pieces. I made this spoon that night. It was very wet, so I am letting it dry out before smoothing it out. P.S. My other hobby is photography.
A client commissioned me to make this chest of drawers. The drawers are dovetail, the drawer rails are mortis and tenon and the bottom of the drawers and back are panels.

The timber is Coastal Sheoak, native to Western Australia , the piece being branch material from a tree I felled in a customers backyard that was set aside to air dry for later use. The main trunk I think will prove to have some very nice material for larger projects. The grain is quite dense and a little interlocking but rewarding with its figure. The only gouge I had at hand was about seven mm but being inspired I made do and shaped a scraper from a piece of offcut construction grade steel which worked surprisingly well. I experimented with the handle to see if something more ergonomic for an elderly person would make any difference, so far the response has been positive.
Toy box made from pine. No great joinery in this one just butt joints glued and screwed, more of a prototype but my nephew liked it, so I decorated it for him great for practise with spokeshaves and rasps not to mention cutting the letters out with a coping saw.

I posted a photo in the gallery earlier with this spoon unfinished on a stack of firewood I used. I incorporated some of that same walnut along with white oak, maple, and mahogany into the cutting board.
Split-top Saw Bench, pine with Danish oil
I am a disabled United States Marine Corps combat veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and have found woodworking as a means of therapy and recovery. Several years ago I became extremely interested in woodturning in addition to flatwork and started to make wooden lamps on the only lathe I could afford, a Harbor Freight 12″ x 36″ wood lathe. Here, I have turned a lamp out of solid cherry and outfitted it with solid brass hardware. I’ve never been able to sell any of my lamps but I still make them nonetheless. In 2009 I lost everything because of my service but woodworking is slowly helping me to regain dignity and my own humanity. I hope others will enjoy my labor of love.
Not to be confused with Paul’s project, it’s made out of Hoop Pine it’s very strong yet easy on on hand tools. Also it is adjustable height a light coat of shellac was applied
This one is made from Poplar stained with Elm and finished off with Antique Oil. It supposed to have a rustic look about it, also I tried to make a contrast between the joints but didn’t end looking the way I expected it to so it look like gaps but there aren’t any.
This is the last of the Fijian Kauri I had, I placed the hinges on the outside as they were too large to be recessed in on the insiide. Unfortunately I can only post one pic of it but it has a back door. Hope you like it.
I used Radiata Pine typical home centre lumber, the top edge glued and morrtise and tenons throughout. Finally I finished it off with a Rose Mahogany spirit stain applied with a rag and lastly a few coats of satin varnish. Actually it turned out more like an eggshell than satin isomething you’d get out of minwax antique oil but thicker. Anyway this was a gift to my wife for her 23rd birthday.. Unfortunately I just can’t get a better pic.

This is a house number plaque made for my girlfriend’s house, which is my first serious attempt at doing a mostly hand tools only woodworking project. The lighter coloured wood was recovered from a pallet, which I think is redwood, the edging and characters are made from mahogany. The lighter wood section is 3 pieces edge jointed together, with the mahogany border rebated, mitred and glued in place. The characters where made from the same piece of mahogany as the edging and were cut out using a scroll saw, hand finished and glued in place. Due to it being located outside it was finished with 3 generous coats of Danish Oil and mounted using keyhole plates rebated into the back.

African mahogany (Khaya) with orange shellac and dark wax finish. Added two magnets to hold board closed (pro-tip: pay attention to magnet polarity). Given as gift to 6yr old nephew who already plays the game at school on “board game days” when too cold to have recess outside.
The hull was built of pine, the trim and seat of red oak, handle is mostly hickory, and the storage compartments were of all three. This is where I stretched the limits of my machines and began to realize they could not provide me the level of craftsmanship I desired in my work. Woodworking Masterclasses with Paul Sellers has lifted me over that hump. With his methods using sharp irons and traditional skills you soon become the crafts person of your project. The result of your work then, only comes from the intentional actions of your trained body and creative mind.
