  • Classic cherry bed

Individual slats mortised into a curved top rail are just one of the features that make this elegant project an interesting challenge to build.

  • Children's bookcase

This easy-to-build project features solid wood construction and a unique shelf system. There are three shelves that can lie flat or tilt back to "cradle" the books.

  • Wood pens

Turning your own pens is a great way to use up small scaps of wood. And by using our step-by-step instructions and simple turning jig for the drill press, you don't even need a lathe.

  • Mantel clock

From built-up mouldings to a handy pull-out drawer, this project packs a lot of woodworking in a small package. But best of all, we kept the design simple enough so that you can build this clock from start to finish over a weekend.
