I am a semi-retired cabinet maker from Texas. I recently built a sawmill so I could cut my own lumber. I
started building log furniture to make use of the limbs, branches and offcuts. Long story short, I haven’t built
any cabinets for a while and am having a lot more fun.

Man, I LOVE what you’re doing with your “scrap” wood! All of those are definite keepers!

All are excellent projects. The cooler really has my interest. What did you seal it with and did you coat the interior with something extra ? Excellent job, thanks. Also great choice of drinks, my favorite brand !!!!!!!!!

I like them all, but that canopy bed is pretty spectacular.

Awesome furniture, and very original. You don’t happen to be near Conroe, do you? I’d love to come “help” with the sawmill. Hope to have my own someday.

I use marine urethane on everything. On request I use acrylic resin. Otherwise I just rely on multiple coats of poly. There is a drain just like a real plastic cooler. Keep it clean and It will last longer than an igloo(though somewhat heavier). Thanks for you comments and keep making those shavings.
