Dining Room Table
The Forge of Greensboro
Dining room table I built for my wife.
This table is a tribute to the iconic Texas Longhorn – a unique breed descended from Spanish cattle brought to the new world by Christopher Columbus that later Read more The tabletop is two pieces of bookmatched Texas Pecan with eye-catching spalted figure and color commensurate with that famously multi hued and patterned breed. The ends of the top are curved like those mighty horns as are the Texas Mesquite bowtie keys that hold the two halves together and yet apart. The table’s base is select grade Texas Mesquite and is carefully proportioned to convey a rangy sinewy strength. Both sides of the table feature the exclusive design combination of the Republic of Texas seal sporting carved horns. The legs are emblazoned with distinctive cattle brands from the frontier days of Texas through 1860. An incredible variety of personal symbols, they include the registered marks of Stephen F. Austin, José Antonio Navarro, the Alamo mission, Oliver Loving, and many other pioneers. More information on each of the brands is provided with two companion wall art pieces that are included with the table. The ends of the table are a nod to the state institution so intrinsically associated with the longhorn. The University of Texas tower is represented with spalted Pecan and antiqued steel. The familiar blaze of burnt orange is provided by the shelf which is wrapped in genuine top grain leather and embellished with decorative star upholstery tacks. Last but not least, antiqued steel rings and longhorn hooves carved from spalted Pecan provide a solid foundation. The finish is a European hardwax oil that has been hand rubbed to a satin sheen. The console table measures 58″ Long by 24″ Wide by 32″ Tall. The two wall plaques each measure 17″ Wide by 19″ Tall.

Solid Wood Oak Dresser
My name is Carlos Carbonell, I am 30 years old and from Argentina. I moved to the US in September 2021 because my wife was transferred from her company in Read more
My hobby since I was a child was carpentry. I inherited this from my grandfather who was an Italian fine woodworker that lived near my house and I spent many afternoons after school in his workshop watching how he worked.
In 2017, I started my own business in the workshop that I inherited from my grandfather.
After I arrived at Greensboro in September 2021, and while I was waiting for my permit to work, I became a member of a maker space located in downtown called Forge, where I started making some furniture that I needed for my new apartment.
I made a dresser and two nightstands in white oak for myself; now, I am working on the bed and starting to set up my workshop again.

This bunk room was for a child with many friends and even more toys. Every nook was specifically designed to ensure the perfect placement for all the special items in his life. I wanted the room to not only be functional but also be a place where he would want to spend his time surrounded by aesthetically calming materials. White Oak and Steel!
I have grown my tiny furniture company with a used Minimax CU300 and only 600sqft of shop space. I’m happy to say that next week I will be moving into a 2000sqft shop space and expanding my passions. I just hired a new apprentice and eagerly searching for another. I want to share my love of the work I create to the next generation. It is possible to find your dream job!

This table, titled Intersection, was born from an idea while playing with two arched pieces of wood from another project. The thought occurred to me to Read more
The table is constructed with solid ash and shop sawn ash veneers over bent laminated 1/8” Baltic birch strips. I made it using standard traditional woodworking machines including a cabinet saw, jointer, planer, bandsaw, router table, vacuum press, and shaper.
Intersection has proved to be very exciting to the eye, as the various components intersect and pass through one another. I love how the simplicity of the form betrays its construction complexity and the way in which the clean lines and angular nature of the feet and “horns”, (which support the glass), provide a tasteful counterpoint to the curves of the arched structure. Due to its interlocking nature, the table is both lightweight and incredibly strong.
I have had the opportunity to create many fun pieces of furniture, but none have been as challenging or rewarding to complete as this table. Intersection is my favorite!

I’m a lifelong woodworker who, despite not being a musician, always wanted to build a guitar. I fulfilled that dream last year by building a Telecaster.

Antique Oak Cabinets
Kyles Cabinets LLC
This project was designed by our customer. She wanted a panel ready refrigerator hidden next to an office entrance. From the out side it appears to be antique oak cabinetry; once the doors are open it reveals a large double refrigerator/freezer combo. The large set of doors to the left of refrigerator leads to a private home office.
We used hand selected boards from an old mill in Fredericksburg Texas.
Mesita de centro

We were in the need of this for our living room/tv room to help us with food, drinks etc and to rest our feet while watching the tv so it was important to have a solid and heavy table and this is what i came up with.
80% of the project was done with hand tools
Sound Panel Frames
The product we make using the sigma impact is quite simple. They are rectangular plywood frames comprised of 1/4″ and 1/5″ media. This product is the skeleton used to assemble our made-to-order products. Without the high capacity output of the sigma impact, our production lead times would increase, makind us less competitive.

New Day Carpentry LLC
My brother in law dreamed of having a nice office one day where he could display all of his books and collectibles, he entrusted me with the project. I had to design everything to be assembled on site because there was no way to get the cabinets into the basement otherwise. The turns were too tight and the windows were too narrow. Using the festool domino connectors I was able to finish everything off site and achieve the look of full height floor to ceiling cabinets. I was also able to do all of this without any of the connectors showing. I’m proud of this project, it definitely pushed me to think outside the box!
Readfield Tower Clock Dials
Tise Woodwork and Design
This is a project that really stands out to me. In late 2020, I assembled a group of 3 unemployed/displaced workers (all Covid-related) to help complete a large project in my shop. This is the first year I had to hire employees.
This extraordinary project came in at the very end of my run with the full crew!
All three of my new employees were very new (green) to woodworking. They did a really great job helping to fabricate the (3) 7′-10″ Mahogany Tower Clock dials!!!
It’s a project I am very proud to have taken on with 16 years in the trade.
It also really maxed out the shop at times!
Very fun and unforgettable!
Craftsman Style Queen Bed Frame
I’m relatively new to woodworking, and a friend asked me to make this bed frame. I converted full plans to queen, and started by picking out a log so I could specify what and how I wanted it cut. I made some modifications to the design, and at almost every step along the way, I tried some operation that was new to me (building the headboard and footboard panels was particularly challenging, as were the headboard insert blocks), and worked mostly with borrowed equipment in my shop. I had several problems to solve along the way, including not getting the length of boards I specified, and receiving red oak instead of white oak I ordered. I worked on this from start to delivery on weekends only (I have a day job), and it took nearly 18 months. My friend (pictured with the bed) is thrilled with the finished product, and so am I.

John Deer Tractor Bed
This project is special as it is made for my son and is my first major woodworking project. The project is made completely of wood except for the fasteners and hardware. The bed is modeled off of a John Deere Tractor just like “Grandpa’s”. The front “weights” serve as a toy box and the bed can be disassembled with knockdown hardware for moving. The “Toolbox” chest of drawers is modeled off of a roll around toolbox. The box and drawers are made Baltic birch plywood. The drawers feature false fronts to mimic a tool chest while offering 6 drawers for clothes storage with Blum soft close hardware. Thank you for taking time to check out my project! This was my first major project in woodworking and was completed off an idea!

Our personal kitchen, full gut of original to the studs, joist and subfloor. I molded all the trims and door frames myself. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun.
Floating Walnut Vanity
Modern Wood Services
Modern Wood Team
This custom floating vanity was designed to feature the grain pattern of the walnut veneer by running it horizontally. A clear conversion varnish in a matte sheen keeps the natural beauty of the walnut shining through and push-to-open drawers provide some extra storage for essentials.
This was a really challenging but enjoyable project. Through my employer Vintage Woodworks Inc, I recreated this waterwheel to match a preexisting one that had deteriorated over the years. It is located in the Japanese gardens at the Royal Roads University in Victoria, BC Canada. It was made entirely of Accoya and all the joinery was machined using the SCM Accord 25 FX. The complexity of some of the programming (primarily the axel assembly) was a challenge and the complete assembly of the wheel was a head scratcher at times. I was the sole joiner on this project from the original design sketches, programming operating, to the final assembly. It was exciting to know all my hard work would be on display in such a beautiful space for generations to come.
DB Construction Inc.
This Glendora project was a complete remodel with interior walls being removed and the homeowners wanting a new “open” kitchen concept. A very small area but the layout was designed in house and the homeowners love it. It was an older home so we decided to go with in-lay doors and drawer fronts, “shaker” style door profile and finished ends, T&G paneling at the ceiling and Cove Crown throughout. I have a very old (and purchased used) minimax but I was still able to manufacture square cabinet boxes and square face frames.

Trestle table and accompanying benches in soft maple (2021). 76 in x 37 in x 29 in
I made this dining table and accompanying benches for our new home in southern Maine. As a place where we intend to gather with extended family and friends, it was the perfect opportunity to bring part of our family history to the space. I milled and then air dried the wood from two different trees (both taken down years ago because of disease). A tree that stood in my parents’ backyard and for much of my childhood held the treehouse my father made for us supplied the material for the table. Likewise, the large maple tree that once stood in the front yard of my wife’s childhood home became the material for the benches. Though sourced from two different maple trees growing in different locations, the resulting lumber was fortunately nearly identical in its coloring and made for a unified dining set.
As the dining table is the place in our home where everyone in the family routinely congregates, it goes without saying that being able to create this piece made from materials tied directly to our family roots makes for a very special place for us to sit together and make memories in this new home.

S+L Millworks Inc
Our hospitality-oriented work all but vanished during Covid. That is when we were contacted by Arturo Fuente Cigars and Suncoast Displays and asked to help design and build their display cabinetry for the annual Premium Cigar Association tradeshow in Las Vegas. A plan was developed to build the 20-foot wide by 20-foot deep by up to 12-foot-tall display and storage cabinetry. In addition to the outward facing cabinets, a full-size door entry would lead to an interior conference room. Since it was for use in a tradeshow, setting the cabinets up in the small window of time would be a must.
Photos are courtesy of Suncoast Display.
Since our team of four craftsmen, had done work for the corporate office of Arturo Fuente Cigars, including the reception area, a private office, and a boardroom, we understood that a high level of execution would be required. Before he passed away, our team had the opportunity to meet Mr. Carlos Fuente, the second-generation owner and master cigar maker. While completing a project for his home, he stated, “I wasn’t trying to be the biggest cigar maker, I just wanted to be the best.” It was an honor to work for this client and we will always do our best to live up to the high standard.
The display was built using poplar core maple veneer plywood and maple solid lumber and stained black with a slight rub through to mimic some aging. Key to our construction would be to build the unit in manageable pieces, well over forty in all. It would need to have a seamless fit and finish. Our faithful, second-hand, decades old SCMI SI 320 sliding table saw was integral in cutting up all of the cabinet panels square and to dimension.
Suncoast Displays will set up the Arturo Fuente booth every July for years to come. And every year our team will get to relive our memories and take pride in the projects we fabricated for this century old business.
Wilson Wildlife Sculpture
A butterfly and a pair of Pileated Woodpeckers, each carved in wood and realistically painted, combine in this sculpture to create a story of partnership and curiosity. Eastern Tiger Swallowtails are one of the most common butterflies in North America and the state butterfly of Georgia. I chose to portray one in wood to emphasize its fragility while also showing it in its natural habitat. Joined by the pair of woodpeckers, it evokes the joy of seeing such a rare and beautiful scene in nature. Witnessing a Pileated Woodpecker, the largest living woodpecker in North America, is quite memorable. These magnificent, flashy, loud but shy birds prefer old growth forests with standing dead trees. They occupy the same territories throughout their life, establishing family bonds. In fact, they are known to mate for life. Consequently, I also wanted to tell the story of a family, interconnectedness, and the beauty of nature. After all, we all share this planet and its resources.
I have been passionate about birds, butterflies, nature, and woodworking my whole life. As a result, I strive to create one-of-a-kind, innovative sculptures that push the boundaries of wood. “Family Tree” is an eye-catching, engaging wood sculpture that stands 6’8” tall with its plinth stand. It has won awards across the country and definitely draws attention.
I would love to be chosen as a finalist and have the opportunity to promote SCM and the International Woodworking Fair on my social media accounts. With over 16,000 followers, I believe I can give your organization a large degree of public exposure. Of course, I would love to win a new table saw, too, as it would be a great help in creating my pedestals and sculptures. Thank you for this opportunity and for your quality tools, service, and equipment. Finally, congratulations on your 70th anniversary!

I made this watch out of carigana trees right out of my back yard the colors make it my most unique product i have made.you have to dry the wood first then size it down and without my scm tools i could not do such a good job.
I built this clock for my great grandson, so it’s truly a grandfather clock in every sense of the word! I wanted to build something to outlast me that could be passed on for future generations in my family to enjoy, that was both meaningful and representative of my passion for woodwork. The clock itself is fully-functioning and made entirely out of baltic birch plywood – even the gears! Each piece was hand-crafted using custom-built jigs. It was a lot of fun to build and I’m grateful that my love of woodworking has carried on to my son who has built his own custom cabinetry business. Winning this contest would not only make for even more amazing stories/memories associated with this clock, but I’d also love the opportunity to gift the sliding table saw to my son to help grow his business. I appreciate the opportunity to showcase my work and greatly appreciate your vote!
This project best represents my love for wood.
My aim was to make eyeglass frames using only wood.
Therefore, the hinges were also designed and made of wood,
without metal parts or screws, and this allowed me to obtain a super light product.
I also decorated them with inlays made with different types of wood.

Making a joa end grain cutting board with my 15 year old
New York Palace Hotel Bar
My Name is Dror Heymann, I am a designer and sculptor with who has lived and worked in New York City for the last 20 years. I use elements of the human body and nature to create pieces of art that will enhance, rather than outshine, their settings. My architectural projects and sculptures blend natural shapes with the formal elegance of contemporary sculpture. I incorporate traditional woodworking joinery with the latest machinery and technology.
A few years ago, I was commissioned by The Palace Hotel in New York City to create a very unique sculpture for one of its secret spaces. My concept for the bar was modern and fluid, just like the overall design of The Palace. Using custom paints and techniques, I created a futuristic finish for this piece of art that gave The Palace guests a look they have never seen.
I created the bar base from multiple layers of wood carved or should I say sculpted with a five axis CNC router. The bar top was made on just a three-axis machine. The finish was a high-impact epoxy with metal powder infused into the mixture. It was then polished and buffed to a mirror finish for the result you see in the photos.

When viewed from the outside you would never know this place existed.
*The focus of this submission will be on the bar.
The main portion of the cabinetry was made from wormy maple with a stain and hand applied glaze. We have an artisan on staff who did all of the gold leafing details around the doors and ceiling and, unrelated to millwork, a faux brick barrel ceiling.
You will notice a hidden pivot door in one of the photos that opens up into a private alcohol storage room that pays homage to the period even further by making each of the shelves look like old wooden crates that have been stacked together.
Not shown in these photos was a men’s washroom where we recycled original whiskey barrels and made them into furniture pieces.
It was an extremely fun project to do with some enjoyable clients who allowed us to be able to create for them a one-of-a-kind space.

We sawed the lumber for this table about 5 years ago. It was a dead walnut tree laying on the edge of a pasture in Central Kansas. We slabbed the pieces out and stored them in our wood shed. When the slabs dried enough to use we knew we wanted to do something different this time. 99% of our work in our shop is custom ordered, so we rarely get to build something we dream up without any input from a customer. This was our chance to have 100% creative control. We have built walnut book-matched tables with a standard joint multiple times already and wanted a one of a kind look. The main wave joint was hand cut and then a template was also cut by hand to use a router and clean the edges for a clean glue joint. We used 2 thin veneers of Hard maple and 1 piece of Cherry to accent the wave joint. This table also features a bullet on the edge of the table that was shot into the tree by an unknown gunman. Its just one of the elements that makes this table so special. We used a commercial grade poly finish on the top. It is a an Ora Verde Acrylic in a Flat sheen. We also wanted the base of the table to compliment the top joint, so we produced leg sections with a curve to mimic the wave. This was done by cutting dozens of walnut pieces at about 1 1/4″ wide and putting about a 3 degree angle on all of them and slowing gluing sections together to create a curve. The rest of the curve was then smoothed out by a grinder. This is by far the most unique table we have built in our shop in 10 years. Our team loves a creative challenge and enjoys building furniture that will last a lifetime.

Towel of Jewels
A walnut piece that I turned on a lathe.It is intended for storage of jewelry, both in the top section and where you see the small holes around the lower section. The small holes can either have earrings attached at each one or, for more storage, little metal rods of brass or other metal can be put in each hole protruding at an angle and allowing storage of rings or earrings that you can slide on the rods. The top section can store chains or rings or earrings as well. The shape is unique providing an attractive setting for the storage of jewelry. As you can see, the top cap fits perfectly as it does not fall off when turned upside down. I hope you find this to be a nice aesthetic and functional creation. Thank you.

This custom floating vanity was designed to feature the grain pattern of the walnut veneer by running it horizontally. A clear conversion varnish in a matte sheen keeps the natural beauty of the walnut shining through and push-to-open drawers provide some extra storage for essentials.
Dimitrios & Company
This is a fully custom, 2 Story Round Library that I had completed back in 2007. Also Features a hidden bookcase. This project took me almost 2 years to complete along with work in other areas of the house. I designed, fabricated and installed everything mostly myself with a few helping hands. We were and still are a small family run shop (Myself, Brother and Son), and this is probably the largest project we have ever done.
This project was the reason for me to purchase a 2004 SCM Record 125 CNC which we still use to this day and has been running strong ever since. It was challenging for me as I had to teach myself how to use the CNC as this was the first computerized machine I had ever bought, but I somehow made it through. This project would have not been possible without that CNC, and the array of other various original Green Colored SCM tools we have (Table saw, Sliding Saw, Planers, Molders, Sander,etc.) that I’ve had since the 80s and are still used today.
Gate between front yard and backyard. It is made of CVG Douglas Fir and it was a Christmas gift for my sister. It was the biggest project (by physical size) I have completed in my garage shop and it was also my second attempt at making drawbored mortise and tenon joints. My sister loves it and I am pleased with how it turned out.
This is a Shaker Bench that I made for my beloved sister. The seat was cherry, the back stretcher was quilted maple, all spindles and legs were maple. She is no longer with us but she really enjoyed this bench. I still can recall her sitting on it, with a big grin!
His and Hers Thrones
Jonathan & Tanya Jung
Two dignified throne chairs comfortably fitted for a king and queen.
As rewarding as these were to make, they hold much more meaning to us than meets the eye. We are a husband & wife woodworking team on an island off the coast of Washington. During building these, our first child was born. Lochland visited the shop only once and then he tragically passed before we could complete them. Going back to work on them was hard, as they reminded us so strongly of him. So what is captured with these chairs represents the best and worst of this life: creativity, relationship, and passing.
Viewed separately, each piece is highlighted in their uniqueness: cues of strength and stability seen in Medieval furnishings for his, and a form of elegance and grace from Victorian decor for hers. Details include a hidden compartment, resin inlays, and natural edge with stabilized bark & moss intact. Both are from solid black walnut and were made freehand with traditional power tools.
These are the first chairs either of us have made. As we continue to grow our family and our business, these thrones will always remind us of a very significant life chapter.

Made for an Anglican Church Chapel and matching the overall decor of the church. I kept everything pretty simple and made the arches similar to the main church. All of the joints are mitered in kind of Craftsman fashion. All quarter sawn white oak with stain and finish to match the pews and kneelers.
Floating Walnut Vanity
PAUL MONAHAN MD
I remodeled my grandson’s first home which was outdated and out of proportion to the main living area. All cabinets build from scratch using melamine for the boxes and 4/4 white oak for the finishes. See attached picture showing the before, after and tools used including a SCM 24″ thickness planer, circa 1988. Thanks, Paul
Lifesize Hobbit Door
Reverse designed and built a 7.5’ tall hobbit door from images. Had to CAD design a functional hinge system and build all wood and steel components from scratch. Entire wall had to be constructed and strengthened to hold the weight of the solid 2.5” thick door. Believe it is one of a kind as the one in movie was a prop and not functional, even used hidden electro magnetic locking mechanisms.
Had to turn pieces on lathe of oversized doorknob , many parts were cut on CNC router, then hand carved to look authentic even more authentic. All trim work was CNC to match radiuses of door, then carved with patterns. Thank you for considering my hard work.
Spring Creek Colony Farming Co
Auburn Performing Arts Center
This is the Gouge performing arts center at Auburn University. The entire project is made from quarter sawn longleaf pine. We could not find a sawmill to quarter saw longleaf pine for us so we hired a mill to saw cants. We then took these cants and quarter sawed them inhouse before sending the green lumber out for drying. Some of the cants were sliced into veneers as well. We can truly say we produced every aspect of this millwork project right down to making the raw material. The radius work you see is veneered MDF. All of the MDF and loose veneer parts were cut using one of our 5 axis SCM routers. All of the standing and running trim you see was run through our SCM topset master, molder. SCM is a valued equipment partner and their partnership has made it easier for us to create quality millwork installations like the Gouge Performing Arts Center.

Wood on Wood Designs
My clients requested a cabinet to store and display his collection of bourbon. After my design work I titled it “Bug” (6 legs,2 wings, segmented body). Built with English Brown Oak, African ebony, and Australian sheoak. Wells on both wings display bottles behind the Ebony tambour. All joinery is mortise and tenon or sliding dovetail. Top, bottom, and feet are hard carved and left textured. Doors have knife hinges and boxwood latches.
This four-door symmetrical cabinet with bottom opening is the first cabinet I have ever made. I installed this in my grandfather’s shop a few years ago when I was starting my side business as a woodworker. My grandfather died before I was ever old enough work on a project with him, but I did inherit his shop and his love of woodworking. The cabinet body was made out of solid aspen pine planks, and was good enough to be stained; however, the doors were originally made by my grandfather, and constructed from plywood. They were originally painted white & I refinished them, and used them on this project, so it were as if we did get to work on a project together after-all. Thank you for your time and consideration!
Bar Window Opener
Ohio Wooden Bench Co.
This project is a direct result of the covid lockdowns, my employees were going to be sent home unless I came up with a quick project… My wife and I always wanted a little extra space to socialize outside, so we started the garage in our side yard. Then came the details about finishes and appointments. So, on a napkin after a few beers here what developed:
A bar with a window that operates, then a stone counter then the ceiling needs to be something special.
The window was built from White Oak Solids (jamb and sash) completely weather striped and finished with Sherwin Williams Duration. The Gears and back board are cut from 1″ Araucoply and finished with Sherwin Williams Emerald paints.
The interior ceiling is a mix of 4 widths and 27 local hardwoods (clear finished) with T & G and a small v-Joint. The great thing about this ceiling is that this is all of our scraps from the last 24 years of Ohio Wooden Bench’s projects. This project started in March of 2020 and finished up yesterday 8/13/2022.
My project is an entryway table that I designed in a Cabinetmaking and Millwork program I took in college. I came up with this design to challenge myself with subtle curvature. It’s a nice combination of mid-century (my favorite style of furniture to make) and Japanese style. It is made of figured cherry and birch wood.
Mid-Century TV Stand
My project is a Mid-century TV stand that a made less than a year ago. I got inspired after reading about some Mid-century furniture designers and added my touch “floating furniture” and came up with this.
Decorative paddle made for the outgoing Regimental Commander. Additionally we (Marine Raiders and Recon) give them to deserving Marines when they leave the unit. This paddle is 75 x 10 x 1 1/2 and made of curly maple and pommele sapele. The curly maple board used is shared in three total paddles, one for each member (Colonel, Master Gunnery Sergeant, and Sergeant Major) of the command team that worked together. Made with a custom Tennessee Vols hanger. Sanded to 1000 and a simple oil finish.
