End Tables - These hardwoods are absolutely amazing!!! As you study the detail in the first photo you will notice the unusual wood grain in the table top and your first thought is "those are funny looking knots."  Actually those aren't knots at all, they are bark inclusions.  We have all seen a tree that has grown around a piece of fencing or barbed wire - well, this tree grew around itself.  When this walnut was a wee little sap, it sprouted hundreds, maybe thousands, of small branches around the trunk.  The branches didn't grow much, but as the tree aged, it grew around the branches and left these "bark inclusions" in the grain of the wood.  Talk about custom, I doubt you will ever see this type of spectacular wood grain again.  The legs are solid curly maple with African ebony feet.

 

Mission Style Headboard - Made this for my beautiful Mother.  Somewhat arts and crafts, or mission style headboard made of wormy white oak.

 

Coffee Table - I made a pair of tables like this one done in solid cherry.  We use it in our family room as the table for the television.  The dovetailed drawers with full extension ball bearing slides are filled with DVDs for us and our children.  My wife's folks have the other table in their home.

 

Cherry Dresser - This cherry dresser is in the nursery.  We needed a "changing station" for the children, but we did not like the style of the store bought variety.  This dresser works perfectly.

 

Sofa Table - This is my very first woodworking project ever!  This red oak sofa table was made from lumber I got from my Grandpa's farm in Richland Center.


Dining Table
- For my Grandfather, this dining table is solid white ash (they make baseball bats from white ash) and the center board, breadboard ends and drawer fronts are made from red elm.
