Rachel Oil Lamp Holder


This is Rachel, a new woodworking plan that I have just posted on Sawtooth Ideas. A simple glue, screw and cap method of woodworking enables even a novice woodworker to achieve great results. The carving is done with a hand held rotary tool and a 5/16" carving bit. 

This woodworking plan makes a great weekend project. This one is stained with Pecan stain and features roses and leaves.

Pine Bench, Entry Bench, Wood Bench

                        Versatile Benches
This bench would be great in an entry. The seat lifts up and has space for shoes, slippers, mittens, all the things that collect in an entryway. This model is shown with the rose motif but comes in the Birds and Leaves model, or the Sunset model. This one is Special Walnut, but can be ordered in Pecan.

This bench is great for an entry, but can also be placed in front of a heater. She is also available  in the Birds and Leaves or Sunset model. This bench is available in Pecan as shown or Special Walnut.

This bench is great for extra seating for guests and also makes a great coffee table. Versatile, practical and pretty,  she comes in 4 models. Roses, Sunset, Birds and leaves or Swans and roses. All of these models are available in my Etsy shop.

Simple carving, woodworking plan

                             Simple carving
Carving with a hand held rotary tool is a great way for the average craftsperson to add nice details to furniture without having to spent hours and hours on carving techniques. This method of carving is fast and simple to accomplish and allows you to be very creative, in a weekend, instead of months. There will always be room for traditional carving but sometimes you just don't have months to devote to something, or the talent for a full scale carving project. Both of these coat racks were built in a weekend.


This type of carving is done with a hand held rotary tool and a 5/16" carving bit. This plan is available on Sawtooth ideas along with other simple woodworking plans that can be done in a weekend with a limited assortment of tools. Woodworking and woodcarving, made simple.

simple woodworking, new method

                  Woodworking, Made simple. 
This is a magazine rack that is built using a simple method of woodworking that I call the "Glue, screw and cap method". When I first started woodworking I was a bit intimidated by complicated joinery and electric tools in general. I still don't like the electric hand saw because it is heavy and easy to lose control, so I developed a method of woodworking that allows me to build beautiful, strong and creative furniture, using simple building methods and ways of using tools that are safer than the traditional method. For instance, I use a jigsaw to pre cut boards, instead of an electric  hand saw, then I make the final cut on the table saw, to get a nice straight cut. I assemble the furniture using screws and glue, instead of clamps, nails or other joinery methods. This allows me to build furniture faster, because the screws hold the pieces together while the glue dries. I can continue to build on the project right away. I always use pine, it is a soft wood that cuts and carves  easily and is readily available. You can find pre planned pine boards, and laminated boards at any hardware store. This eliminates the need for a planner. A planner is not particularly dangerous but they are expensive, and require a lot of space. My method of woodworking, saves time, is simpler, can be used in a small garage, and is easier to accomplish with professional results. The plans shown and more are all available on Sawtooth Ideas. This is where I sell my plans. They allow you to download the complete plan, and also view it in Idea Room which allows you to view the plan from all sides, and view how they are put together. Idea room is free.

Tiny Kitchen, Small kitchen, Part 1

                              Tiny kitchen
This is proof that with a little planning and imagination, you can build a useful and delightful kitchen almost anywhere. I built all these pieces, the potato, onion, apple rack, the pot rack, the shelves, the cupboard over the stove, the peacock stool in the corner, that matches the butcher block counter and basally everything in this place was built to fit in a small space, in a short amount of time, with a limited budget. A picket fence was used to hide the storage room in the back.




This is a baking  center that holds books, bowls, and mason jars in two sizes.  The curtain hides more storage. I chose a curtain because doors would have been in the way.

This is a tea cup shelf and a tray holder. No space was wasted.

Tiny Kitchen, Small Kitchen, Part 2

                            Tiny Kitchen
I needed to put an industrial sink in the kitchen, so I built a dish rack to hold the dishes and put a skirt in front of the sink to hide the storage underneath. This kitchen was small, and visible from the front, so everything had to look neat.

I built a canning cupboard to store the canned goods and a file cabinet, to keep things organized and hold the cash register. A peg board over the register kept the orders organized.

This cupboard is over a counter and features rose moldings and a cup shelf. It is hard to see but there are butterflies etched in the glass. 

A large, Time Worn White cupboard provides ample storage.

Quilt Rack, Quilt Stand, for Small Quilts

              Charming Rose Carved Quilt Rack
This charming quilt rack features hand carved roses  and leaves, and  will hold five small sized quilts. This rack has a bottom tray that holds the quilts off the floor. This could also be made custom in a larger size and she comes in Pecan or Spacial Walnut stain or Time Worn White, as shown.

This is the side view.

This rack is 26 1/2" wide and 36" high, and can be ordered on my from my etsy shop.
