  2. Etsy Puzzles, and more

    https://www.etsy.com/shop/Spunwood It has been a while since I posted a project because I have been getting my 2014 Spring Puzzle and doodad collection together I decided to take a different approach to Etsy, though my prices are probably still too high. I got the idea of wavy wood puzzles by...
  3. Gazebo Fly-Through Platform Bird Feeder

    I build these large fly-through bird feeders about 10 years ago. The first one I designed after I had patched up an old Amish-built one for a coworker. That bird feeder was quite large and had a copper roof on it. I really liked how practical it was - you simply toss bird seed inside and the...
  4. Playhouse

    There is a soft spot in every man's heart for his daughter and mine came a week after my 50th birthday, my first and only child. I knew she would have many toys, trinkets and games from me, a woodworker who loved his craft and loved her; so when she came of an age that imaginative play kicked...
  5. Serving Tray

    We have a leather ottoman, about 22" x 47", which is a companion piece to our leather sectional. It is very comfortable to rest the weary legs on, but alas, does not function so well to rest guests' drinks upon. So, the need for a serving tray that could both stand on its own on the kitchen...

  8. Benchtop Mortiser Table Extensions

    I recently purchased a Powermatic PM701 Benchtop Deluxe Mortiser. It's a sweet machine that sure beats making mortises by hand…but, the metal table is short for furniture/cabinet pieces. I saw an idea in the May 2012 Wood Magazine that I thought was the answer. It's basically two elevated...
  9. Photos Transferred to Wood, with how-to video

    I found an easy way to transfer photos onto wood. The process uses something called Matte Gel Medium which is a paint base that you can buy at any craft store. The medium goes onto the prepared wood like a paste, spread with foam brushes, then the photo gets smoothed on. After drying overnight...
  10. Treated lumber rocking chairs

    A co-worker asked me to build her two outdoor rockers for her new house. I built these mostly from shorts I had from a dock renovation so the lumber was air dried.

    This is not a fancy project by any means. It was buiit because we have a few pets and there are times when you have to take them to the vet. Well if you have pets you know what vet bills can run. So I came up with this idea to have something fun to put your spare change and extra money in to...

    A while back I bought a late 70's/early 80's craftsman 113 table saw that is in great condition for $120 that had everything with it down to the original blades and manual. I know these saws have a great reputation and honestly, I don't have a interest in having the biggest and the best. I have...
  18. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    A good starting point is a brief overview of my experience as a bench mark to use as a gauge . I have been self employed in the woodworking trade for over twenty years working on and off for other contractors now and again. I don't do lots of large jobs but rather a wide variety of small...
