Here's My Woodworking!
By Donald Sulltrop


My Grandfather, Father and Stepfather have built furniture for years. As a kid, I turned a couple of bowls and then lost interest. Then we had some cabinets built last year and my wife suggested I try woodworking. So I bought Paul Sellers book and started cutting joints with hand tools in old two by fours. They fit pretty well so that was motivating. Then I read a design article using the golden triangle. I used this principle to design this staircase.





I was also inspired by visiting a man named Steve Riemer's studio and house. He had built most of the furniture and now builds kinetic metal sculptures. I asked him about the golden triangle and if he used it. He showed me a piece where he simply cut some pieces to the golden triangle and randomly put them together. It was amazing.

Below are a few more of my projects:

Dogbowl holder made from Mahogany and Pine pallet


Tool case made from Pine pallets, door jams and dresser drawer backing


Shoe Bench from our old butcher block counter top

Cherry Barstools with tapered mortise

Hanging lamp with Cherry and Red Oak laminate rings
