Knot Burr Puzzle

My newest project, the 3 piece knot burr puzzle. 3 pieces, one maple, one cherry, and one walnut. Carefully sanded and finished with Danish Oil. Selling them on ebay, check it out!
Following a pattern (of course) I cut out the pieces needed, glued them up into the 3 shapes. Table saw, radial arm saw and planer were all needed.

Careful sanding is next, and a test fit, just to be sure. Then comes the finish, we chose Watco Danish Oil, other finishes can be applied by request.

Outdoor Projects...

So, no cabinetry or furniture to show you today...Buddy's been working outside...

The ground behind the pool wall settled significantly. So much so, that Bud was able to remove 4 rows! It's really going to look nice I think.

Cleaning up around the area, the rocks are brought down for the stone wall. Tractor REALLY helps with this project!

Custom Designed Entertainment Center

In walnut with a natural finish. Why would anyone stain walnut dark??? To each his own...

The best part about this beautiful piece is that it is for US!

Entertainment Center Anyone?

This is the first step, figure out what you want...TV will be in the center, speakers left and right behind retractable doors.

Mahogany Display Cabinet

Built for my Dad. Mahogany solid wood fronts, sides and top with glass inserts. Plywood back and sides and dove tail drawer boxes.

Hand crafted as a surprise gift (I tend to do that quite often).

4 DEEP drawers that fully extend across the bottom. This cabinet holds an extensive Christmas Village!

Custom Crafted Cabinetry & Furniture...Unlimited (that's me).

Furniture, hanging on my wall...

Buddy makes furniture...

This all started as Buddy was going to build me a couple of "hooks" to hang a very pretty horse tray thing on our wall. I should have known better!

WELL, when he came up stairs with these hand crafted mahogany brackets, I said "that's furniture, what are we going to hang off of those"? Buddy laughed, but when we held up the brackets and set the tray in it, the tray was dwarfed! So, that didn't happen. After much discussion, this is the end result, one each displaying my show bridles :).

Backyard's an option!

Precision Pools did the pool install, I did the rest. Dug and installed the retaining wall, block by block by block. Reconfigured and added on to the existing deck AND built the pump house. Do you have a construction project like this in your future? If so, and you are in or near Windsor, me to discuss it. 802.683.4616 or email me.
