This is our latest labor of love: a red oak portable desk with a Minwax Colonial stain, this really makes the wood grain just pop and brings all the beauty of the wood out where you can see it. We call this style the " Riverside" the artwork "Jumping Brown" is hand drawn, colored and woodburned and then we finished it with 4 coats of Minwax clear satin polyurethane. Between each coat we sanded it lightly with 320 grit sandpaper so it has a silky smooth finish. We also fully line the bottom of the bench with a thick green felt nap to keep it on your lap or from scratching desktops!

About Me

My photo
Conneaut Creek, PA, United States
I started making turkey box calls about 8 years ago when I needed a hobby; I was a Vol. Firefighter/EMT for 22 years and Capt. the last 12. I never had time for a hobby then, I guess firefighting was my hobby and getting time to bowhunt back then was cherished. I took woodshop in school with the same teacher all 6 yrs. and I learned a lot from him, that started my passion for woodworking. Anyway, needing a hobby I combined my two passions; woodworking and the outdoors..being an NWTF member..what was better than turkey calls, and later hunting stuff; it was the natural thing to do. I recently took up fly fishing and made a few friends that needed some woodworking done for them so now I make fishing related stuff too.
