frontpage “Ash & Walnut Child's Table” Fun making tiny furniture.

Over the past few weeks I've been working on projects for a show at Jemez Springs Community Art Gallery. I started with a child's Table and Chair. I made one from white and this one shown her from Ash and Walnut.

frontpage “Military Display Table" Walnut Table with Glass Cover.

I made this craftsman style display case for a friend's husband. It has space in the upper left corner for the flag he received upon retirement for his years of dedicated service. All his military medals and memorabilia will be displayed proudly in this beautiful walnut table. The mitered corners are secured with a small ash spline to give this classy project just little bit more character. I also built a smaller version -- just a case to be hung on the wall for another Air Force friend retiring this fall.

frontpage "FroggyBuilder's Child's Chair" Froggy's modification of a child's chair.

My most recent project was the modification of a child’s chair I found online. This was a prototype for a future project that will include two child’s chairs and a small table with inlays. I’m thinking ash and walnut with mahogany inlay. I’ll likely chose some other woods as well.

frontpage “Fun Project” For my great nephew.

I took a little time from all my cabin projects and made this little measuring stick for my little nephew. Now Grandpa Jack can keep track of how fast he grows. I used a piece of 6" wide pine and cut a bevel on one side. Then I cut strips with a 1/4" straight bit in the router. I used padack to fill the strips. And my wood burner finished it all off.
