  1. Labor Day Weekend Dock Project

    This was really more of a carpentry project, but it met the criteria for posting. This dock replaces the old, basic dock that had rotted away and posed a danger. Dimensions are a large 16' x 12' with a 2ft cantilever over the water. The two outer corners were cropped to 45 degrees. I found a...
  2. Octagonal Low Pedestal

    Octagonal Low Pedestal Got myself some African deck flooring (I think the wood is Massaranduba) from a friend and entirely out of those pieces I made this octagonal low pedestal for that angel sculpture. Unfortunately my pictures didn't come out very good but you get the idea. Stelios AKA...
  3. Not so much "wood" deck

    I did this deck between September and March of last year. Yeah, it was cold! It's not a fine woodworking project so I don't know if it will fit in here. I did everything myself except for some help on the 100 bags of concrete. It's a composite material from TimberTech. The deck has 23...
  4. Patio/deck ice chest stand

    I made a small cooler chest a few months ago with a small Styrofoam ice chest inside as a kind of prototype. I finally decided to make a full size version with a 52 QT igloo ice chest inside for my dad's birthday. It is made out of 8 cedar fence pickets from Home Depot. It has two handle on...
  5. Another Adirondack Chair.....

    The wife saw the Adirondack with the pull out foot rest on the cover of Wood magazine. I walked in the door from work and she handed me the magazine, still in the clear plastic sleeve and simply said "Yes, Please". It looked a little daunting for my skills, but I was pleasantly surprised at...
  6. Deck

    This was my first big project for our new house. I had a couple of deck building books and the use of the internet to get me through it. It took me much longer than expected, but I learned a lot and picked up a lot of new skills. I designed it to have an eating area and then an area to have a...
  7. OUTDOOR FARM TABLE

    A few years back I was lucky enough to get 8 boards of 2" thick clear white cedar. I always wanted to build an outdoor project with them, but wasn't 100% sure what to build. Last month my patio table finally deteriorated to a point that was beyond repair so I decided to build this Outdoor farm...
  8. The first Pallirondack Chair

    So this is where the name "pallirondack" comes from. I made my first Adirondack-style chair-and everything else I've made so far-from 100% recycled pallets. I found a design/plan online (thank you California Redwood Association) and modified it to work with wood from pallets instead of cedar...
  9. Cedar Patio Table and Benches

    One of my first "real" projects for household use instead of another piece of shop furniture. Found the plans on Pop Mechanics but needed an excuse to buy a Kreg tool so used it instead of doing a ton of mortise and tenons. Bought the bench cushions from Pottery Barn. Dumb luck that they were...
  10. Building a shed under a deck

    Finally shot a video of my shed under my deck….
  11. A Deck for Mom

    OK it's not really woodworking. But I was uploading the Stickley Side Table I did for Mom (do I sound like Cliff Claven?) and I thought that I would share this too. This is the house where I grew up in Centerburg , OH. It is a small, all-American town in the heart of Ohio. (Hence the name...
  12. decked out

    This was a major deck remodel. It wraps around the entire house allowing 3 doorways to enter on to it. There wasn't enough room to show before and after pics. The cascadeing stairway has 23 jack in it.
  13. Ipe deck and fence.

    This was a fun project and to date one of my favorites. I spent some quality time with my father constructing the frame and building the wall for the fence. At 80 years old I still can't slow him down. The frame is redwood and the decking and railing is Ipe.
  14. First Deck

    May 2008 - PT Pine - 12'w X 19'd
  15. The Beast

    I call these steps "The Beast" because they remind me of a famous wooden roller coaster in my neck of the woods of the same name. The owner bought this house and needed new steps so she could move in. It was a challenge as I had to pretty much design on the fly. I dug some new footers and used...
  16. Second Deck

    June/August 2009 - PT Pine - Top Tier 22'w X 10'd - Bottom Tier 12'w X 11'd
  17. Little Bridge for A Customer's Pond

    A lady asked me to replace her old "bridge" with a new one. The old one had a ridiculous arch in it that cause many people to slip and fall if it was even slightly wet. I wish I had taken a picture of it. I put three 2×4's underneath and tapered them at the ends to meet the ground. I am always...
  18. Beautiful Cedar Outdoor Patio Table

    Here's a few pics of my finished cedar patio table. It took some time to build, but it's totally worth it. Total cost was ~$140, which was way cheaper than buying anything similar in a store. The closest I could find pre-made cost $499. The table top is made from 5/4 cedar decking and the...
  19. deck

    the deck made in parquetry style
  20. Porch

    My friend wanted to replace their front porch, which was in very bad shape. I built this porch for them, just kind of making it up as I went along. It is made from pressure-treated woods and finished with Flood Natural-Tone Wood Finish.
