  • This is a huge improvement, and what a great idea! It could be summed in the idea of adding character to a new space. Your Dehab project is a great example of taking a space from merely functional to functional and beautiful.
    By RYOBI Nation, on September 7, 2016

  • @Ryobi Thanks I appreciate it. Another thing I didn't mention, I used all scraps except the 2x2 plywood, but even if I bought everything it would have cost less then buying a replacement plastic drop in...
    By DI Y did I try that?, on September 7, 2016

  • That's even better! Great work!
    By RYOBI Nation, on September 8, 2016

  • I definitely like the beadboard look. Very nice!

  • This is astounding work! It sure looks like all your through research and preparation paid off. The construction, the finish, everything on this project turned out beautifully. Tell us more about that design! Was that something you were able to find online or did you create it yourself?
    By RYOBI Nation, on September 6, 2016

  • Thanks! I created this design myself, but it was after watching numerous Youtube videos of others building their own. I combined their work with what I wanted out of the table, improvising as needed. My initial drawings and sketches were a good starting point, but as I begun building and learning new techniques, I was able to incorporate those types of things in. For example, I was planning on just pocket holing the drawer boxes together, but learned how to dado the pieces for a better fit. I also stopped by my local woodworking store and they showed me how to use a small hand planer, the kind with just the blade, so I could soften the edges on the drawer fronts and table top. There are definitely mistakes all over this table, and things I would do differently, but all in all, I'm super happy with how this came out!

  • That's terrific that you learned from others and added your own elements. We can't wait to see what you come up with in the future. Expecting great things!
    By RYOBI Nation, on September 6, 2016

  • That is gorgeous! To think this is one of your first projects is amazing. Your attention to detail on the drawer fronts is beautiful. I have a feeling you will be enjoying this for years.

  • Thanks MrPip, yeah, I was kinda surprised I could do this. It took me a month, and I researched every part of this thing and how to properly put it together. I also took a woodshop class during the process so I learned a lot, mainly how to use all the tools appropriately. I also spent a few hours at Rockler chatting with one of their employees, and he showed me a few things. The scariest/hardest part of this was putting the big hole in the table top. The bit kept coming loose in the collet of the router when I turned it on.... I made a ton of mistakes making this, and lots of things I'd do differently next time, but most of the booboos are hidden or not noticeable to others (ie - 3 tries to hang the cabinet door, 3 sets of random holes, nail that came through the table top, brad nailing things crooked and having to drill holes around the nail to needle nose plier them out).
    By Slurprun, on September 14, 2016

  • Don't beat yourself up. EVERY project has mistakes that only you will see. It took me years to get over that. I would give away something and immediately tell the recipient all the things that are wrong with it. My take is only time and work will make that go away. This is a beautiful project you should be proud of. I love the fact you didn't use all pine and finished it in different colors. Again congrats and hope to see more of your work.

  • This is fantastic! Very nice job!
    By 0_LGBYBB, on September 22, 2016

  • What an improvement! The upgrade gives a nice classic look to the space. It's easy to imagine- this must have been a drastic improvement over the carpeted look!

  • What a great build! This office space is absolutely enviable! Did you create this from an existing plan or did you start from scratch?
    By RYOBI Nation, on September 6, 2016

  • We did this from scratch. We wanted to maximize the desk surface so we virtually went from wall to wall…a 12’ span. Creating the risers for the computers gives us perfect ergonomics for viewing and using all of our tech devices.
    By 1984Mac, on September 6, 2016

  • Beautiful work. The risers are great- anyone who works with computers would appreciate that feature!

  • This is so awesome! Your torch/paint technique really makes this piece. You carved all those stars by hand? That's impressive work! (By the way, we'd be remiss if we didn't say it- that man cave is off the hook!)
    By RYOBI Nation, on September 6, 2016
    • Yeah, I have to admit, that man cave is pretty darn impressive. Quite a collection, you almost don't notice the flag...lol
      By fEzZ, on September 6, 2016

  • Well, the flag is definitely the new focal point!

  • That's a design I haven't seen before, really creative and turned out great. Nice job
    By DI Y did I try that?, on September 12, 2016


  • Cool idea. I love the material you chose. You should check out some of the similar works by Fezz.
    By mrpip, on September 16, 2016


  • This is a cool twist on some that I have seen. Love this idea.

  • This turned out great! It's not everyday we see a project that started out as branches! Was it tricky to produce straight boards?
    By RYOBI Nation, on September 6, 2016
    • It was very easy the tree was down for years so the wood was very dry. After it was all square it was just a matter of deciding how thick I wanted the boards.
      By schmidtbuilt1982, on September 6, 2016

  • Awesome, awesome work. Thanks for sharing this with us!
    By RYOBI Nation, on September 6, 2016

  • I wish you would have shown some of the pieces as you cut them, or even show what hardware you used to put it together and a couple of steps. I have a general idea, but imagine that not everyone probably does. Keep up the nice wood work!!
    By JTroop, on September 6, 2016
    • You should vote for me. I have pictures of the cut boards, and I can tell you how I did it.
      By schmidtbuilt1982, on September 7, 2016

  • I have pictures of the cut boards. You should vote for for me I can tell you just how I did it.
    By schmidtbuilt1982, on September 7, 2016

  • I love what you did. That table looks great. I would like to see what else you come up with.
    By kikesmith, on September 13, 2016
    • Thank you sir.
      By schmidtbuilt1982, on September 14, 2016
    • Thank you. If I had more free time I would love to work more.
      By schmidtbuilt1982, on September 15, 2016

  • Love it!
    By kikex8, on September 14, 2016

  • Is that the natural color, or a stain? That is beautiful. Where did you get the idea?
    By Trey1987, on September 14, 2016
    • It is just the color of the wood. I am glad you like it. My parents have a full bed made out of it. The boards are a lot bigger. I just want to see if I could do it. It turned out well.
      By schmidtbuilt1982, on September 15, 2016

  • this is the best project I have seen on here. I did not know you could mill wood on a table saw. if your other work is this Wonderfull you show start a youtube channel. I am sure with talent like this Ryobi would give you lots of free tools; or at least pay you well to be the sponsored tool brand.
    By deer run, on September 14, 2016
    • That would be great. I wonder how that works. I think I would look great on YouTube. Lol. Plus I love tools. Let's make that happen.
      By schmidtbuilt1982, on September 15, 2016

  • Deer run. I think your right!
    By Mials101, on September 14, 2016

  • Deer run. I think your right!
    By Mials101, on September 14, 2016

  • We'll keep up the great work!!!!
    By Trey1987, on September 15, 2016

  • wow this is amazing. how did you do this? did that really come from those trees? you show have put that on youtube.

  • Awesome design! It really is surprising that you've only been woodworking for a relatively short amount of time. Were there any unexpected challenges with this piece (aside from the laborious process of reclaiming the wood, that is)?
    By RYOBI Nation, on September 5, 2016
    • Thanks! Yes, nailing the boards to connect in the middle 2x4 was hard since it was a tight space and I wanted both to have a strong hold. I wanted to use a sheet of plywood but all the scraps I have lying around weren't to my desired size. So I use extra 2x4's that I dismantled from another pallet.
