  1. Rear fence

    I was commisioned to build this fence because the old fence was rotten and about to fall apart. we decided to use 5/4×6 for the pickets and chose vinyl lattice for the top. Once it begins to warm up again and stay dry, I will seal it.
  2. Bookshelf Wine Rack for Bottles Large and Small

    I built this wine rack about a year ago for our vacation home. It sits within a book shelf that is built in to the end of the kitchen island. It is a typical lattice construction wine rack, but the dimensions have been adjusted so that each slot will hold the three most common wine bottles...
  3. Climbing Vine Lattice

    Wife and I finished this a few months back. I "borrowed" the idea from this forum, and want to express my appreciation to the original designer, but I've lost the name. Thank you. Since finishing this little piece of yard sculpture, the directions to our house have become: "and after...
  4. Pallet wood (H)erb/veggie Garden

    My version of WWMM's Herb Garden plan, I wanted something to go on each side of the windows in my garage, that side of my house get absolutely pounded by the sun (as you can see by the condition of the siding/window trim). I was too cheap to pay $22 for the sheet of lattice at Home Depot, so I...
  5. Lattice fence build- video!

    I built a lattice fence above a masonry wall dividing us from our neighbors after they cut down a bush that had formerly blocked the view. I time lapsed the whole thing, and thought you might find it of interest (or humor) It took me 3 days instead of the 1 that I expected- am I the only one...
  6. Raising Gardens and Families

    Once I said to my oldest daughter, "I don't want to do things for you, but I would love to do things with you." I think she took offense to that … at first. As time went by, I think she understood what I meant. Life is made up of time spent. Some of the most wonderful time is spent doing...
  7. Custom Fence

    Custom built fence, built from scratch picket by picket for my backyard. All I have left to do is fabricate some gates. The fence in the very background will be removed from by my neighbor and we will be constructing my fence in its place. This is my first fence job and I am thrilled with the...
  8. Hexagon lattice

    This lattice was made from two types of pieces, one has a tenon at each end and the other a half-mortise cut at 60 degree angle at each end. I used recycled cedar, the pieces had variable depths but uniform width. Since I intended to paint it black in the end, I didn't worry too much about the...
  9. Water Heater Screen

    In that same craftsman home, my wife and I enjoyed a beautiful back yard with a glorious view of … a 60gal water heater ;-) I got myself some redwood lattice, and boxed that bad boy right in. Of COURSE, the next month, the water heater failed, and … the box I built (no choice, really) was so...
  10. Little scrappy

    This small lattice made with scraps a few years ago. The thin cedar strips were left over from ripping some boards and had enough flexibility to make small S curves. The tops were trimmed with garden shears. I banged some copper pipe flat with a hammer to make the rings for "hinges".
  11. Seahorse wall hanging

    I made this seahorse at my daughter's request, she's doing a "beach" theme in her bedroom. I sketched out the pattern on graph paper, then transferred it to brown paper at full size. Basically a lot of little half-lap joints, all cut by hand, then glued together. The seahorse intentionally...
  12. Island Deck

    Ever since I saw the article "Breaking Away" in the March/April 2003 issue of Handy, I knew that deck would be a part of my back yard entertaining. It was delayed because a pool use to reside in this spot. After two years with the pool only being used twice, I decided that the island deck...
  13. Weave Cutting Board

    This is my first attempt at a "woven" style cutting board. This one is for my girlfriend's mother, so I hope she likes it. I have made a couple of the checker board style boards and looked around on this site for more ideas and found this. The woods used were ash, cherry and walnut. Needless...
  14. Father-in-law Settee

    I built this bench for a friend's father-in-law in Jackson, TN. The recipient was a retired railroad man and had salvaged the cast iron "standards" and "arm rests" from the old train station. His son-in-law had them sandblasted and powder coated. The bench is made of cypress. I made the lattice...
  15. Finishing
    So I have a job for a restraunt of 40 oak butcher block tables. The old finish is a old oil base poly but on with one thick by the owner 7 years ago. Let's just the finish is not pretty. Pizza pans stick, cups, napkins and menus all stick to this massive failure of finish. The first finish I...

    Hi everyone! I´m new here. I want to built this type of wooden screen with lattice panels, but i´m having some problems with the joints of more than 3 pieces in the main structure. Thanks for your comments!!!

  18. Blogs
    Basic grill making I made a few bread cooling racks and was asked how I did that. This is how. I start with two pieces of wood. One for the width and one for length. Then I cut the slots in each piece. Exactly one half the thickness of the wood. The space between the slots does not...
