As the title says, I'm going to plop pics here of misc completed projects that don't fit into other categories of work that I do.

Retail displays located at the New Jersey Acquarium.

Most of it is Wilsonart laminate with the trim moulding and edges being in hard maple with matching stain/conversion varnish finish.




Also, build the jewelry cases and the cabinetry and slatwall display behind the cases.

Some of the nesting tables I made for the Longaberger Basket Company. These are made of reclaimed "tobacco barn antique pine" from North Carolina. I wire brushed the wood, blew off the dust and rolled on a "frosted" paint finish.

You have been around a TABLE SAW or TWO! Those are some FINE projects!
Thanks all . . . and actually that should be three table saws. I have an Altendorf WA-8 for panels, a Delta Unisaw with right tilt and a Powermatic 66 for left tilt. More will be posted soon.

Good looking Chicago rail. Did you make it?
+1. I like it a lot too. I was wondering the same thing. Did you make it?
I made bar rail once . . . and I repeat ONCE. Never again. Too much time and sanding and time is money. Unless somebody wants something special I buy off the shelf from Frank Paxton Lumber Co in Cincinnati.

It's always best to work off of a drawing and break things down into sub-assemblies when building something big. There is a process and you can either follow the process and build things efficiently or just go about it willy-nilly and be really inefficient. I learned alot about organization amd manufacturing when I used to run a 50 person business and oversaw pretty much everything except sales.
