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 the 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
Wall Racks in various styles and sizes. Wall Racks
are one of my favorite pieces to build and I enjoy
building them. Any chance I get to build one I do.
The design idea for this Renaissance Statue Stand is
based upon a piece which I had previously built for a
customer who wanted a Stand to display a bust of
Augustus.  Augustus was the first Emperor of Rome who set
the standards for later Emperors to follow. Finding Rome in
brick, Augustus left Rome "clothed in marble."  I began
studying the proportions and ratios of the ancient Greeks
and Romans used to build their temples and other
important buildings.  Reading the works of Vitruvius,
Palodio and other ancient architects I designed and built a
piece for the customer.  I liked the piece so well, I designed
and built this piece for myself, making some changes to
ensure the originality of the customers piece.
Another good thing about woodworking is the ability to
build great projects like cabinets. I built the partition,
cabinet that goes above the refrigerator and the pantry
on the right. All 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
Over 20 years of woodworking I've had fun and I am still haveing fun woodworking ! I've built some pretty cool
projects for family, friends and customers. With a few tools ( Table saw, scroll saw, router and so on ) I began
building various projects. It wasn't long before I began building one of a kind pieces. Over the years I gained
experience and upgraded my table saw and added a couple of tools ( Planer and joiner ) and so on. The Request
never stop coming in and I am always looking forward to building new projects !

As woodworkers we earn a sense of accomplishment when we take a project from a sketching to hand picking the
lumber, shaping the material, sanding and then applying that perfect finish to compliment the project.  Woodw
selection and finishing are 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 challenging project
we develop, learn and grow as woodworkers every step of the way !  Learning new techniques, types of woods,
finishes area part of the excitemnet and fun that woodworking brings to us !

When it comes to Birthdays and Holidays or building that everyday gift there is nothing more gratifying than the
accomplishment of building a project and giving it as a special gift to family and friends or the satisfaction of the
customer !  The extra time and thought spent on your project will become a "Treasured Heirloom" for years to come !

I am
PROUD to be a woodworker and enjoy spreading the word about woodworking !  So if your not a woodworker
