Victorian  Wall  Shelf / The Hoosier Craftsman
Journeyman
This piece was inspired by a Roycroft Magazine Stand.  A
customer had seen a Roycroft Magazine Stand and  
asked if I could build the piece but change the
dimensions.  The Roycroft piece was built from quarter
sawn oak and thats what the customer wanted as well.  I
sold for nearly $40,000 at auction.  The Roycroft piece
has been copied numerous times by woodworders, it's a
great piece to build.  I enjoyed building the piece and the
customer was very happy and excited to receive his new
piece !
Victorian  Wall  Rack

I built a set of these Victorian Wall Racks for my sister as a
Valentines Day gift. The one thing I love about building Wall
Racks is when people come to visit they always ask Where
did you get that ? Wall Racks are great for displaying knick
knacks, collectibles and other items and add appeal to a
room. I built these pieces from salvaged wood which I had
gotten free ! I finished th pieces with a dark color of liquid
stain with 6 coats of a clear shellac followed by 6 coats of a
dark
gel stain. I've built them in various styles and sizes.
Wall Racks are one of my favorite pieces I enjoy building.
Any chance I get to build one I do.
Cabinets
Another good thing about woodworking is the ability to build
great projects like cabinets.  I built the partition, cabinet that
3 pieces were 30" deep.  The bottom part of the pantry is a
trash bend while the upper part has pull out drawers for
easy access.   The best part about building these pieces
was applying the finish.  I applied a base coat of liquid stain
followed by 6 coats a clear shellac followed by 10 coats of 3
different colors of
gel stain.  The doors and fronts are solid
Cherry and the sides and back are Cherry plywood.  The
right side of the pantry has panels of solid Cherry as well.  
The customer preferred that I did not use any particle
board, composition board or any other material other than
Cherry.  The gratifying part is the home owners are happy
and excited with there new pieces.
As Woodworkers we earn a sense of accomplishment when we take a project from a sketching,
hand-picking the lumber, ripping, shaping the material, assembling, sanding and apply the perfect finish to
compliment the piece.  Wood selection and finishing is just as important as the construction, techniques and
craftsmanship of your piece.  As woodworkers we also take pride in every piece we build, from an easy to
build project to a tough project we develop, learn and grow as woodworkers every step of the way.  Learning
new techniques, types of woods, finishes is all part of the excitment and fun woodworking brings to us.  

When it comes to Birthdays and Holidays or just an everyday gift, theres nothing more gratifying than the
accomplishment of building a project and giving it as a special gift to family and friends.  The extra time and
thought spent on your project will become a gift "treasured" for years to come.

hand-picking the lumber, shaping the material, assembling then sanding and apply the perfect finish to
compliment the piece. Wood selection and finishing is just as important as the construction, techniques and
craftsmanship of your piece. Learning new techniques, types of woods, finishes is all part of the excitement and

Fireplace Mantel - Videos and Page
I built this piece for homeowners whose fireplace mantel had been removed and lost
during a remodel from previous homeowners.  The new homeowners wanted
something different with Architectural appeal.  This is the design which I came up with.  
There are 2 parts to this video which have been uploaded to
YouTube.
