Wooden Cross

Wooden Cross

One of my niece's recently got married to a wonderful guy. I was trying to decide on something small, but nice, that we could make for them as a wedding present. We decided to make them a cross to hang in their new home together. Made from walnut, curly maple, and...

Walnut Cutting Boards for Top Shelf Copy

Walnut Cutting Boards for Top Shelf Copy

Finally, cutting boards! Seriously, I sort of love making cutting boards, even more when they are for friends. This stack of cutting boards is for a friend mine and I was able to use my laser engraver to burn his logo into the back of the boards along with my logo....

Full Size Pine Bed

Full Size Pine Bed

I'm slowly getting into building more and more useful furniture projects. This project is actually for my granddaughter and is her first 'big girl' bed. I started with some great looking v-notch (tongue and groove) pine boards that I get from a local company. I love...

Walnut Floating Shelf

Walnut Floating Shelf

We've been pushing hard recently to finish the basement into the game room, relaxing area that we've always planned on it being. Once we got the floor finished and the walls painted I hung the far too small TV and realized that little things like the satellite...

Lindberg Diamond Duster Model Rebuild

Lindberg Diamond Duster Model Rebuild

At some point in the early 1970's I got this model as a kid. I don't even remember getting it, but I do know that I have kept it with me through every move back and forth across the country, always thinking that some day I would get around to building it. That day...

Inktober 2019

Inktober 2019

Every October is declared 'Inktober', a month of daily drawing primarily using ink as a medium. In the past I drew all the time, everything from doodles to full on art pieces. But it has been a long time since I have been serious about it. Inktober 2019 has provided...

Antique Dashboard Clock Rebuild

Antique Dashboard Clock Rebuild

Dad brought over this clock that he got at either Sun & Fun or AirVenture a few years ago. When he picked it up it was a non-working, sort of filthy, but cool, old clock. Knowing that I love clocks (and watches) and that I had some watch repair training, he left...

Rustic Bathroom Holders

Rustic Bathroom Holders

You see these things all over Pinterest, cast iron pipe room fixtures for towel racks, lighting, random things to hit your head on, and so on. My office is one of those extremely eclectic places that is part fishing lodge, part steampunk submarine, part comic book...
