I have been doing woodworking for about 25 years. I like working with hand tools. I have started to veneer because good figured wood is getting harder to find.
Below are some of my woodworking projects that I have built over the years. The tool cabinet is made of cherry with a little curly cherry across the top:
The slant top desk below is made of curly maple:
The entertainment center is made of rift cut White Oak:
The small nightstands are made of both veneer tiger maple and regular boards of tiger maple. This is my favorite thing to make, I give them away as wedding presents to family members. I think they're great wedding presents because they will last long after I am gone. And I threaten them to never paint the table.
I built my shop 20 years ago. The barn is 14x20 with a 12x12 added on the back. I started with a Shopsmith and have progressed to this shop (I have been very fortunate). This was a great place for a dad with 3 daughters, now all grown up. It was a place to get away, and now they all need me to make them something.
I also like to do my own landscaping:
