School Clock

This is one of two clocks I made to replace it. All the wood parts were made from scratch from the same black walnut as the original and plans made from photographs.

Computer Desks

Here Bob the Minion is demonstrating the newly installed desk. The chair was also replaced after the photograph was taken.

The desk frame is made with mortise and tenon joinery.
The side frame sub assemblies.
Final assembly of one desk frame. The computer sits on the two stretchers at the back. This keeps the case off the floor without getting in the way of feet allowing for a very compact floorprint.
Finishing the frame in satin finish poly. By far the best finish for children's furniture.

Appliance Stand

The main distinctive feature of the piece is that the joinery is quite massive. The main legs are twice as thick as the 3/4 inch wood commercial pieces would use and it is built to the exact size of the space with no waste.

The drawer is supported by full extension slides. I ignored the silly instructions from the manufacturer about clearances.
Fitting the stand to the wall to prevent it tipping over when fully loaded. the backer is screwed into the studs along the length.
