PROJECTS

Straight, clean lines give this buffet a contemporary look. But don't let the simple appearance fool you. With its frame and panel assemblies, open shelves, and "framed" drawer fronts, there's plenty of woodworking that goes into this project.

Craftsman wall shelf
Quartersawn oak, and mortise and tenon joinery with a few classic details thrown in - this shelf is the prefect project for you to build in a weekend or two.

Beaded-panel storage bench

TECHNIQUES
Dado blades
Workshop made beaded panels
