Very Poplar Headboard

My client wanted a unique headboard. She’d already done the whole IKEA thing and wanted something that would last and would make a statement. After talking through her whole project, we concluded that a live edge headboard would make that statement. We met at my live edge vendor and looked through a bunch of slabs. […]

Fire Sale Mantel

This was my first epoxy project. I got a great deal on the slab. There had been a fire at the wood place and it smelled like smoke. I had it flattened at 4 Chicks Furniture and it took away any smell.  I taped up the bottom and edges as well as I could. Unfortunately, some of […]

Arizona Couch Table

I got a couple of gorgeous pieces of Ash from ArborScape Woods. I had some friends that wanted a couch table for their vacation home in Arizona.  After taking off all the bark, I had it flattened at a shop that has the machinery to do it quickly and with great results.  I filled in […]

Gift Mantel from Friends

Some friends of mine had a friend moving into a new home and wanted to do something special for her so they called me about building a new fireplace mantel for her as a housewarming gift. I was happy to do it.  I met with the homeowner to assess the situation, take some measurements, and […]

Sewing Machine Console Table

I got this piece of live edge Ash from ArborScape Wood Products. I planed it down, stripped the bark off the edges, and then sanded it down well. I then finished it with Osmo PolyOil. The finish looks great. I bought the antique Singer treadle sewing machine from a local fella and then attached it […]

Pergola Patio Table

The pergola attached to the back of our house was in bad shape and didn’t provide much shade because it faced. And I felt like it blocked us from enjoying the big trees in our backyard.  My wife and I took it down and set it aside for a year or so. I got motivated […]

Rocky Mountain Console Table

I love working with reclaimed wood. The wood from this table came from fence rails from a ranch near Winter Park, Colo. You can see similar fence rails in the last picture in the gallery below.  The wood has great character, including gnarly knots and nail holes.  I planed down the wood enough to make […]

Western-Style Island Wrap

My customer had seen a kitchen peninsula wrapped at a friend’s house and asked me to do it at their house.  We discussed different options and they gave me a picture they’d found on Pinterest. So, I started getting together ideas.  I bought some 1″ x 4″ and stained them with black stained and put […]

Rustic Built-in Shelves

The client had a tiled alcove 10” deep and 60” tall in their bathroom. They wanted shelves to hold towels and other stuff. I prepped four pieces of wood for the shelves and cut 1 ½” angle iron to hold them up. I tried using epoxy to hold the angle iron against the tile, but […]

Rustic Bathroom Vanity

The new vanity was slated to go in an alcove in the new bathroom and was the same look as the cocktail tabletops – rough 2×6 wood stained black with 2” x 2” angle iron on the sides. We did the same treatment with the stained 1x6s going up the wall on both sides underneath […]
