May not be a real “project” but I thought about how to do it for a week or so. I used some red oak from an entertainment center I took apart.

Hay Mark: Tearing entertainment centers apart are a “real project.”

By the way nice looking fence modification using recycled wood.

I consider it a “project”- and a very good one!

I once read an old issue of Wood magazine that had a detailed plan for making a Biesmeyer (can anyone spell that word?) style fence out of hardwood. It even included the rails and a push down locking lever. So there is nothing wrong with a wood fence!

I LOVE when people take it upon themselves to build their own tools! This one looks fantastic!

Great improvement mark. I spend a lot of time making improvements to my tools since I don’t have the cash to buy them will all the bells and whistles. That looks a LOT like my old Craftsman saw. You can get a lot done without breaking the bank if you take the time to improve your tools.
