  2. Camp Table

    A folding camp table. One of my first "real" projects using more than screws and paint. Used spar varnish as it would be used outside and possibly rained on. Also my first breadboard ends. Given as a Christmas present.

  4. Lantern Boxes - Japanese tool box style

    I have some oil lanterns I take camping with me. I got them years ago when I was more active camping SCA style. They are ceramic and they are a nice warm flame about 40 watts. I find I like them far more then the brightness of the Coleman lanterns so I use them at our families yearly cousin...
