Barn Doors

Using reclaimed hardware from an old barn, Matt created custom barn doors to divide our garage into “his” workshop, and “my” paint shop. Unfortunately my side has been taken over by outdoor furniture, bikes, and junk. Approximate size: 6′ tall by 8′ wide.

Sugar Shack Stool

This rustic stool was crafted from found wood at an old sugar shack. The seat is made from box elder and the legs are made of sugar maple.

 

Upcycled Headboard Bench

Here’s a cute little garden bench that we made from an upcycled (aka curbside) headboard and footboard.

A Box for a Friend

This was an overdue gift for a good friend living overseas. I finished it a while ago, but wanted to wait until she received it before posting anything here and ruining the surprise. A box inside a box, with another gift inside the inside box.

Custom Record Box

Matt was recently commissioned to make a custom record box which will serve as a wedding gift. It turned out beautifully.  Made from pallet wood with his hand tools.  Lined with black fleece and finished with stain and polyurethane.

Reclaimed Wood Door Frame

Matt’s was commissioned to make a reclaimed wood door frame. Made with pallet wood, it turned out beautifully.

Puzzles

I recently purchased a book of puzzles to build.  These two were my first built from the plans within.  Making puzzles is definitely a good way to practice precision, accuracy, and consistency in the shop.

Custom skateboard rack

Matt created this custom skateboard rack to house all of Ezra’s skateboards. Painted with ASCP in graphite and emblazoned with his initials, it keeps all of Ezra’s boards neat and organized.

Knife Box

I thought I would make a box for my dad, to keep his old combat knife in.  I miscalculated the interior dimensions though, so needed to make a second one of the proper size.  Not a terrible mistake though, as the other box holds other small items and looks just as nice as the gift given to my dad!

Christmas Boxes

I made a couple boxes for Christmas gifts this year.  Here they are! This watch box features a glass lid for displaying a man’s fancy watches, as well as a special place underneath for keeping rings and other small valuables.  I made it with oak (stained dark) and maple.

This jewelry box was made specifically for hanging necklaces while still fitting on the shelf of a young lady’s desk.  It is somewhat rustic looking with it’s box joints and brass hardware.  I made it from some hardwood pallet wood, that I think may be cherry, but I am not certain.  I’m really happy with the instant heirloom look this piece took when it was finally done and rubbed down with a bit of tung oil.
