I am a hobby woodworker located in Door County, WI. I enjoy making a whole range of things from custom furniture and built-ins to wooden games and toys, as well as all the things my wonderful wife adds to the list. I love it when friends and family ask me to make something because the look on their faces when I present them with exactly what they wanted makes all the blood, sweat, and sawdust worth it. I learned much of what I know from my father, who shares a love of time in the shop. More recently, I have come to enjoy participating in the online woodworking community, where I have been blessed to find unending support and inspiration.

Children's Farmhouse Craft Table

By Nate Crilly at Nate Crilly Woodworks in Sturgeon Bay, WI.

I designed and built this children's sized craft table for my daughter. Now she has her own space to draw, color, look at books, and work on puzzles. It is sized perfectly for small children but has an elegant design that will fit well with most home decor, so there is no need to hide it away! The table is made from construction grade lumber that I milled and glued up for a clean and seamless look while remaining affordable. I used 1/2" dowel joinery for the majority of the construction, making this project both approachable and incredibly strong.
