My junk

Here are pictures of furniture I have made or refinished.

Most of these I have made, the others I have refinished - or restored from the furniture graveyard.  I do the woodwork and metal work, including the hardware - hinges, hasps, bases and so on.
When you're done here, be sure and see the old sewing machine I rebuilt on the 'Sewing Machine Project' page here.
Of course, click on these thumbnails to see a larger version.

Let's start with the bookcase/video cabinet:




Here is the sofa table.  Never mind the boxes tucked under there.

Next is the wrought iron coffee table and plant stand:

And although the lamps atop the end tables don't show up very well (I forgot to take good pictures of them), I made them too.

Here is the new version of the video/component cabinet:

This was all done over a period of about 15 years.  Look for new stuff if I ever get around to it.
That's it for now, so go see the 'Sewing Machine Project' page here.


Here is the latest project.  It's a footlocker for my niece Deb:










I think she likes it.
