Adirondack Sewing Box

This is an antique sewing box that I saw in the Adirondack Mountains several years ago.  I modified the original design a bit and dropped the drawer to the bottom of the cabinet.  I've made one of these as a gift.

Asian-Inspired Bookcase

Here's a unique drawing that was 'inspire" by similar Asian type bookcases.  The joinery is mostly mortise and tenon.

American Walnut Settee

This Walnut Settee was patterned after a turn of the century original. The curved seat and back along with the multiple turned spindles makes for an interesting piece of furniture.  The joinery is mostly mortise and tenon.

Bookcase and Drawers

 I call this model "Bookcase and Drawers" for obvious reasons.  It's an eye catching piece if creative furniture in a modern or contemporary design. The construction uses one angle (27 degrees) to set the diagonal center drawers.  The shelving is set in shallow dados.  The sides are frame and panel.

Bookcase - Collapsed

If you are in to unconventional creative designs, then here's a contemporary 'collapsed' bookcase for you.  This model is made in pieces (components) and can be used as a blueprint to construct the bookcase.

Bookcase - Modern Accent

Here's another creative modern design of an accent shelves bookcase. This piece of furniture has a limited number of pieces and should be an easy one to construct.

Asian-Inspired Stool

I drew this "Asian-Inspired Stool" after seeing the one that Alan Turner built and displayed in the Fine Woodworking Web Site. You might say that I was "inspired" to try my hand at drawing it SketchUp.
