Whether you build it for yourself or as a gift for someone else, this cheese slicer and cutting board combination is a great way to spend a few hours in the shop.
Sturdy joinery, strong but lightweight materials, and graceful curves give this practical project a look of elegant simplicity.
Inspired by military campaign furniture, wood and leather combine in this chair to create the most comfortable seat in the house. And you’ll master some new skills while building it.
The chair is stained with a 50/50 mixture of Minwax “Provincial” and General Finishes “Candlelite”, then topped with multiple coats of spray lacquer.
This shop-built sander is a real workhorse. With a 6"x 89" sanding belt, a powerful 1-hp motor, and an adjustable table, it will make short work of all your sanding tasks.
The edge sander was painted with Benjamin Moore's Regal Matte in “Nocturnal Gray” (2135-30).
From the scrolled legs to the hand-carved accents to the marble top, we’ve incorporated some of the quintessential Eastlake details into our version of this classic table.
The table is stained with waterbased “Dark Mission Brown”, from TransTint dye. Then two coats of lacquer finish were applied. The marble top was purchased from a local countertop manufacturer.
All the other products can be purchased at your local hardware store or home center.
