  1. Projects Wooden Garden Planter

    I have started my own woodworking journey as a hobby. I have started building wooden planters for around the house because my wife wants more color around. I bought a Metabo HPT miter saw, a Ryobi drill and impact driver kit, and a pocket hole jig as recommended by a youtube channel I started...
  2. Wedding Arch

    This was a new wood wedding arch/garden arch that was made to look old and rustic. It was built to be assembled like a puzzle so that we could move it in and out of the wedding venue. A few light weight lengths of fabric and some battery powered lights helped to bring it to life.
  3. Outdoor Cypress Gate

    Here is my most recent project. It is a solid cypress gate made out of 8/4 cypress and 3/4 tongue and groove cypress for the panel finished with a solid stain. We modified the original design to incorporate the previous gate's materials which are the cedar caps for the door and jamb which are...
  4. Robins Nesting Platforms

    Inspired by ejpeek's Nesting Box, I made two platforms to attrack one or two families in my backyard. I used shorts from pine boards and I won't apply any finish so they'll end up to a nice silvery grey with time. They look similar to his even if I made few modifications to match my lumber. His...
  5. Garden Bench out of scrap leftovers

    I started this late in the summer season as a way to get rid of a bunch of larger pine scraps I have had for at least 12 years. You can't burn them in the wood stove… so I held onto them (eg. an old futon base, 2X4 leftovers that were too long to just throw away, etc). I saw this plan online...
  6. Gas Tanks Fence

    For a while I knew some protection was needed on the gas tanks, so last summer I decided to start building a fence/gate to reduce any potencial danger. I made the frame out of pallet wood, (its a good way to recycle and save money) and gave it a mahogany finish to protect from the elements and...
  7. Mystery Project (Pot Hanger)

    We snuck away one weekend in September to spend a couple nights at the beach. We ended up staying in Nags Head at a little rental house. The owner lived next door and had a beautiful house with a large second floor deck on the front. There were some very odd looking 2×2s nailed to the sides...
  8. Garden Lighthouse

    I've been wanting to make a garden lighthouse for a couple years now. By chance I was looking through a tool catalog that I got from of all places, my wood turning club meeting and found a nice plan for a lighthouse I bought the plans about a year ago and finally got around to building it. It...
  9. Picket fence and Trellis

    Built a trellis for the wife this weekend and finnaly got it put up today. That is her planting her new vines. Hopefully it will be covered before long. Stripped 1×2 into 3/4×3/8 strips, then glued and nailed together. ( titebond II waterproof glue) The Picket fence I had built last year and...
  10. redwood(scots pine) garden bench

    I was recently asked to make 8 garden benches for some local irish cottages for tourists. 6 were straight forward (or to quote the plan "easy to build"), the other 2 had to be 22.5 degrees to fit around a corner. this was my first production line project and hopefully not the last. dam this took...
  11. Trellis from a fence picket

    Made a trellis for our Clematis . Used an extra fence picket and some chicken wire.
  12. Bird feeder from a log

    This is a simple woodturning project for the garden. I turned it as I would when making a mushroom then continued as making a lidded box, then added a small dowel for a perch.
  13. Nether Edge Farmers Market Summer 2011

    Just an update on how the stall looked this weekend. . . . in situ! Was a great day for sales and a few ostrich burgers to boot! Thanks to all for their fab feedback on the stall & products :) More images on my Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/pangadesign and remember to LIKE the...
  14. 3 Bin Compost

    06/2010 - just found more photos of this project - those during the build. I got the plans on line after doing a "google" search for compost bins. I made this in 2007 and was my first project - a rather simple one at that. But two years later… it's still standing! The idea is that you put...
  15. My First Garden Bench

    A couple of years ago a guy at a garage sale gave me a couple of pine slabs. They were about 6' by 18" by 2" thick. We used them for around our fire pit and just put them on plastic crates. This worked fine for years. But not any more. My second daughter is getting married (I mentioned this...
  16. Compost Bin

    While I'm not much of a gardener, my girl is pretty good at it. Unfortunately, the soil around our new house was lacking basically every type of nutrient known to man. I bought a test kit a while back and every single test (Nitrogen, Potassium, etc…) came up as deficient. So, we decided to...
  17. Compost Bin on the cheap

    Ok… So cheap is a relative term here. I had some left over 4' fencing that I tool down when my dog died. So not to waste, I used those materials to create this compost bin that , I think, has a nice look. A few rules that I learned about composting.. It has to be turned. It needs air flow. It...
  18. Butterfly Garden Bench

    Hi all! Been a long time since I posted (and had much of anything to post). I've returned to woodworking and teaching slowly over the past few years since selling my shop when I divorced. I'm now on the teaching staff at "The Foundery" an industrial grade maker space in Baltimore and have access...
  19. One down two to go

    Made with western red cedar. 2' x 6' x 40" tall 17" deep. The garden is moving closer to the house to make it easier to maintain instead of being way out back. Thanks for looking.
  20. Garden Gate

    Garden Gate made with spanish cedar and Cumaru. If I had it to do over I would have turned pegs on each bar so I didn't have to cut mortises on each one. The top was finished with roundover bit on router table, top and bottom edges.
