When I am not on the computer or at school, I like to spend my time in the garage doing woodworking. Here are some of the projects I have worked on recently.
Girl's Maple Dresser
This is my latest project. This is a girl's maple dresser I just finished making for my daughter. I desgined this dresser, and posted plans for each step on my blog. You can check out the plans here: Girl's Maple Dresser
This is a picture frame I made from red oak. It's hard to tell from the pictures, but the frame is 4ft x 3ft large. The back of the frame is cut out so the painting sits inside, and the face has about a 25 degree bevel.
This is a flag case I made for my father-in-law. It holds a standard size funeral flag. The front is made of glass, and the back attaches with strong ceramic magnets.
This is an oversized stepstool I made for a friend. It is 18" high, 24" wide, and 18" deep. Each of the steps lift up to reveal small storage areas inside the stool.
This is a captain's bed I made for my nephew Jordan. The bed is a twin size, has six drawers underneath one side, and a large storage area underneath the other side.
I made this dresser for my son Matthew. It is built entirely from red oak (including the drawers), and was alot of fun to build.
This was one of my first woodworking projects. This is a rocking chair that I made for my wife just before our first child was born. Cutting the curved rockers and bending the pieces for the back were two of the hardest parts for me.
