  1. Projects Patio table replacement

    My lovely wife asked for a replacement front patio table. (See last photo) we have used that ugly thing for 18 years, still hold a scotch or old fashioned pretty darn well. I had an idea in my head for a unique table big enough for some snacks and a place for a few drinks while enjoying some...
  2. Projects Workbench/track saw cutting table

    I wanted a portable bench that could be used as a cutting table with the track saw. Some of the things I wanted with the bench was clamping ability, a vertical sliding fence and, a track saw track hinge mounting and support. I started with two Kreg Track Horses and then built a frame for the...
  3. Blogs
    Here's a video I made to teach how to repair outdoor furniture and what glues to use. Outdoor furniture takes a lot of punishment and it's built differently than indoor furniture. I've included 10 tips as well. What are your thoughts or questions? I hope you find this helpful.
  4. Projects Outdoor Christmas decorations

    Sorry for the lighting. They do look much better when lit up later in the afternoon and evening. The only reasonable shots of construction show how simple this really was. I laid the 2x4 uprights on the shop floor and then placed "enough" salvaged pallet boards into "about the right"...
  5. Patio Table

    Made of cedar, size is 42×44 and stained a mushroomy color. The top is assembled with pocket screws. It has been used a few times and works as designed (lol). Thanks for looking.
  6. Lumber Trunk

    I needed a multi-function piece for the the back porch that fit the bill of trunk, bench and coffee table. I didn't want to create a standard trunk, and took inspiration from the stacked lumber benches I saw at Millennium Park in Chicago. I created what looks like a stack of 2×8 at first glance...
  7. Home Sweet Turtle Home

    Not really a woodworking project, this 16' x 4' carpentry project was built in 3 LONG days of summer heat. The frame is made of redwood, the doors and top are made of cedar. The "windows" are heavy gauge hardware cloth wire stapled into the window frame. I used a kreg jig build the entire...
  8. Rustic(ish) Bench

    I've had 3 big (46"x25") chunks of cedar for a year now - they were supposed to be for an outside table, but, apparently, we don't need one. But we did need another bench, so, flushed with the success of the origami table I came up with this somewhat similar design. I wasn't sure it would be...
  9. 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...
  10. Outdoor Loveseat

    This chair was designed to beused outdoors for me and my girlfriend to just lounge in. It is finished with a water prrof sealant. I used cherry for the entire piece. It kind of has the adirondock style for the seat but the rest of it is different.
  11. My chairs

    I built these a few months ago. The first one was just to test some plans I had bought. Then my wife got involved. She picked the color so it would show up well on the front porch. Then had to have a second to go with it. Now, I get comments from neighbors and relatives about how they would...
  12. Potting Bench

    This was made for the monster-in-law for her birthday in Austin, TX and strapped to the roof of the SUV and carted all the way to San Luis Obispo, CA. Made of cedar, assembled with stainless hardware. It's a really nice design I found online for free.
  13. Outdoor Bistro Table and Chairs

    Started these as a Father's Day present, finally finished them about a month ago. First time I've ever made chairs, and probably the last time too. Just about had my fill of mortise and tenon joints, and the Shopsmith mortiser is a bit of a bear to use in anything harder than poplar. All made...
  14. 12 year old Bird feeder

    My Sophia asked me to make bird feeder for her friend Sarah in 2006, unfortunately Sarah had already moved away. So we have been feeding the birds in our backyard ever since. Sophia and I built this together, so it's even more special. We often see projects that take a great deal of effort and...
  15. Double Adirondack Bench with Table

    I built this for a friend. She liked the Adirondack chairs I built for myself (from a Wood magazine plan) and wanted a bench with a table of the same design. (They've been married awhile, she preferred the table separate them. LOL) I used the chair plan for the angle of the back and the...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. CARPENTER BEE TRAPS - Optimized Design

    With my youngest son heading to college in the Fall, we came up with a project that he could build and sell at the local farmer's market for pocket money. My house has a lot of exposed wood and carpenter bees are a huge problem. I've experimented in the past with lots of different designs (see...
  19. New Outdoor Table

    The old table was getting a little weathered and was too small anyway. So it was time to build a bigger table and refinish the old. The new table will seat six comfortably, the old four. They can be pushed together to seat? A bunch. I used clear redwood with a stain and Marine Varnish...
