Park  the car in the drive way, clean out the garage, get the tools out, get a set of plans, a cup of coffee and enjoy a day in the shop!  Woodworking
is a
gratifying hobby, passion and profession of mine I've enjoyed for 20 years.  As woodworkers we earn a sense of accomplishment when we take a
project from a sketching, to hand-picking the lumber, ripping and shaping the material, assembling the project, then applying the right finish.  Every step
of the way our efforts show the pride which our piece is built with.   From an easy to build project to a tough project we develop, learn and grow as
woodworkers. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced woodworker, detailed plans are an essential part when building any project.

It's always
gratifying and exciting when you start and complete a new project, especially when you give it as a gift and the see the enjoyment it brings.  
Birthdays and Holidays are always right around the corner and there is no greater pride than the enjoyment your piece is a Cherished Heirloom.  
Whether I'm building a piece for a client, friend or for family I am always looking forward to time in the shop !  
Woodworking is a fun hobby to learn,
teach and pass on !  So learn it and pass it on !

Happy & Safe Woodworking !

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 finished the piece with a base
original Roycroft piece had 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 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 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.

Another good reason I ENJOY Woodworking !

I built this Fireplace Mantel for homeowners whose fireplace mantel had been
removed and lost.  They wanted something different with Architectural appeal.  This is
the design which I came up with.  I recorded the building of this project and I am
currently working on editing the video for this project which is 2 hours in length.

I am looking forward to posting it soon !
