Big Boy Bed by Chris

European Beech wood was used throughout this big boy bed, but the slat supports for the mattress were made with fir.  All of the Beech was 5/4 so the legs and headboard and sides are all laminated and doweled for extra rigidity.  The headboard and footboard use mortise and tenon joinery and nothing else. The sides were incredibly challenging with the curve I added to keep the little one from rolling out of bed. I initially wanted them to have train rails as well, but the curve was too large to the trains to stay on. The top billing for the kid of course, is the train rail on the headboard. He loves stacking his favorites up there and playing while sitting in his bed. Finish was Gel Stain walnut followed by several coats of semi gloss arm r seal.

Bunk Bed by Dirk

this is the bunk Bed, i built for my Daughter’s 3rd Birthday and it also function’s as a Playhouse.
All the Wood (except the Log) was leftover from redoing our House’s Roof.
The Log was a Birch Tree we took down on our Property 3 or 4 Year’s ago.

Box by Ryan

I just completed this box made from Poisonwood, Padauk, Mahogany, and Lacewood. Made it for my brother’s family as a gift.  I don’t have a planer or jointer so any flattening had to be done with hand planes. The double bevel raised panel was cut on the table saw and the handle was shaped with hand tools. Finished with Danish Oil.

Engagement Ring Box by Bryson

My name is Bryson and I’d like to submit this box I made recently for an engagement ring for my girlfriend, Robbie. We’ve been dating for three years and I finally asked her to marry me (yay!). It’s made of oak and walnut with inlaid dovetails. It’s 2.5” cube so those tiny dovetails took many nights of work to get right. Worth the effort though because she said yes!

    I cannot see this video. I’ve tried with both Firefox and Chrome. I also tried re-booting my PC and closing and re-opening Chrome.

    My blank comment below was because your web page erased it because I made an error in my submission.

    What a great article, you have skill, congrats!
    I started doing my own work at home and I’m amazed at how easily we can make some pieces at home with the help of https://mmini.me/BeatifulEasyHomeWoodWork .
    I will certainly use some of your techniques for my next projects.
    Keep up the good work, cheers!
