My Son’s Built-In Closet

I’ve been working on a small builtin cabinets in my son’s room. This little space used to have builder-grade closet with mirror doors, which we didn’t like at all so we removed them as soon as we bought the house. Once doors for the space on top and toe kick … Continue reading

My Woodshop

I still have lots of things to make and upgrade in my garage wood shop, but it’s organized, easy to use, and happy to be in here now.

Chestnut Chopstick Rests

I think Fall is more appropriate for Chestnut, but sometimes I just need to make what pops up in my head: Chestnut Chopstick rests! And they are available in my etsy shop. The purpose of chopstick rests is to avoid chopsticks from touching the table so every time you rest … Continue reading

Furniture – My Old School Project

One of my school projects from years ago. It’s made of African Mahogany, but partially Honduras Mahogany because I ruined something and ran out of African Mahogany, which was no longer available at that time. I don’t remember exactly why I chose this wood because I don’t even like it. … Continue reading

Renegade Craft Fair this past weekend in Downtown L.A. was a huge success for me. Thank you everyone who purchased items from me and also who stopped by my booth to say hi! I really enjoyed meeting and talking to everyone. Some customers from July stopped by and told me … Continue reading

Pot Watcher

I finally decided to buy this pot from Le Creuset. It’s going to look so pretty with wooden bowls on kitchen shelf when we finally remodel our kitchen 😉 Hopefully next year or so… I made this pot watcher for the new pot. It’s supposed to be “steam” coming out … Continue reading

Apricot Live-Edge Planter Stand

I turned legs and put them on the bottom of this pretty Apricot offcut to make this tiny desktop “Live-Edge table”. Perfect as a planter stand, but the burl surface is too pretty to cover up with a planter.

Jam Knives

My parents requested a jam knife to replace their old one made of bamboo. New ones are made of Birdseye Maple. I probably keep the other one for our kitchen. I traced the shape from the old one, but made the handle a little bit longer and also round instead … Continue reading

Stool with Danish Cord Seat

It’s my first attempt in making/weaving a stool with Danish cord seat. I researched, gave myself enough time to think about the process, and thought I prepared good, but just like everything else, I learned so much from letting my hands do the work. I still like to “prepare” things. … Continue reading

Cabinets in Kitchen

My cabinet work in the kitchen. The upper cabinets are for dishes and the lower cabinets are used as pantry only until kitchen renovation. Hopefully then, we have a bigger pantry. The pantry that used to be here when we first bought this house was disgusting. Looking at the photos … Continue reading

Floating Shelves

Last year, my son asked me to make shelves to display his trophies, and I finally managed to make them for him. These are called “Blind Shelves” or “Floating Shelves”. I wanted simple shelves so the quality of wood stands out. My goal for his room is to include variety … Continue reading
