  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. Zen Mountain Lake Chest

    Alder and walnut used to create a surreal scene. Copper accents with a Tansu influence on the sides. Copper for lake patina, extra oxidation to create the color. Happy Anniversary Jonathon and Kaley. Peace, Bruce
  3. More custom Lake Maps

    For a customer who lives on Smith Mountain Lake. Rather than the lake tray he saw, he asked for two lake map pictures to hang on wall. Measure 26" x 28", backer board and lake cutout from Baltic birch, frame is pine with ebony stain, and wording cut from red oak. I was able to stack and make...
  4. 35 Degree Trestle Table, Pine & Oak Pier/Pallet Reclaim

    First things first, this was never going to be a table. I saw a rifle display on LJ a few months back. The top of this table was going to be just that. I started that in Sept '13. It was going to be a Christmas gift for a friend who retired from the Navy the same time I did, but his wife...
  5. Summer Days Fretwork

    These are the ideal size for hanging in a window and letting the sun shine through the plexiglass. They were fun and I enjoyed making them. The picture measures 8" x 8" x 1/4", thats with the plexiglass, and Baltic Birch. I finished them with spray poly. I put fishing line so they could...

  9. At the lake...

    Lake Gaston will be 50 years old this summer, so I am making some projects for a June craft show. All done with scroll saw. Take a breath is a mahogany base with Baltic birch for lake and red oak for letters. The weather station/clock uses blood-wood for base and the lake tray is Baltic birch...
  10. Lake Sunapee Table

    This accent table is a housewarming gift for someone very dear to me. She is a biologist who has a passion for water, fish, and just anything nature related. Growing up on the back side of Mt. Sunapee in NH, the lake below has always been a special place for her. The wood section of the table...

    This is for Dick I'm looking for him. I'm about 3-5 miles west of Frankfort, Michigan, on Lake Michigan looking west toward the setting sun and Minnissota. Sallmon fishing of course, with my first mate, my lovely wife, kris. I don't remember what we caught but with beauty like this it did'nt...

  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    About 30 years ago my dad retired, he was a general contractor, and had an auction to sell off his tools. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get any of them at the time. Several years later I met a guy that had bought a Millers-Falls belt sander at that auction. He passed away several years ago...
