A Little Turning

I took a couple of wood turning classes over the last few months. I have never done any turning before and I really liked it. I will post some pictures and more information soon.

Walnut Tray with Compound Devetails

I first saw this project in Popular Woodworking Magazine April 2013. I liked the look of the tray and I thought it could make a good gift one day, but my main interest was the dovetails on those compound angled corners. I have done regular dovetails before but I thought this could be a challenging project to attempt, so I …

Shaker Table

This is my first furniture project. The table is based on the Woodworking Magazine Autumn 2004 article, built using white oak (mostly quartersawn white oak).

So far I have been happy with their support, contacted them once to upgrade from their Hatchling to their Baby shared hosting, and their response time was great, it only took one hour or so to complete the upgrade. I also contacted them to have …
