  1. cedar patio furniture set

    Here is my first run of cedar patio furniture. I found the chair next to the dumpster in Estes Park, Colorado in good condition but in need of cushions. (picture 2) with cushions it was so comfortable that I had to make one!. I used Cedar and supported the cushions with rope. They are very...
  2. Patio table.

    From Steve Ramsey's Weekend Woodworker course. My purple and gold patio table. I built a second one. But I haven't had a chance to add the clear coat finish to it yet. On this project I was cutting away on the boards. Paying never no mind to the cut plans. Ended up cutting more legs than I...
  3. Adirondack Style Patio Set

    Finished my table set for the new Arm Chair. After building the 36"x36" top, I realized that the weight was too much for the 3/4" legs….so back to Home Depot for a nice clean 2"x10". Now the table doesn't wobble, and the pedestal can be multiplied for a top as long as you want. The table slats...
  4. I turned a single 2x4 into a side table

    I wanted to build a side table for a chair I just got done building. I wanted it to be simple (no difficult angles, cuts, joinery, etc.) and inexpensive. I used an 8' 2×4, I also had to use an additional 12" of another 2×4, however, a 10' 2×4 would have worked perfectly. I cut all the pieces...
  5. Adirondack Arm Chair

    This is my latest Adirondack design. I wanted to make it different than the typical offset front and back legs attached to an armrest, and keep a flowing back support. After a few mock-ups and full boxes of kindling, this is the final chair. I always get friends of various shapes and sizes to...
  6. Grandma Chair

    The hybrid chair…a little more dainty !!! Using a combination of templates from my regular Adult plan and the Grandpa plan, the Grandma Chair has the same 19" seat width as my standard chairs, but the height and comfort of the Grandpa Chair, which has become my best seller since it was...
  7. Jake's chair in other woods

    Here's my version of the Jake's chair in Walnut. I found a local family owned sawmill and purchased some Walnut and some wood known as "coffeebean" wood. Both chairs are made from 1" boards and are thicker and much heavier than my earlier cedar version. I decided to develop a side table design...
  8. Adirondack chair

    I built this chair outta redwood. I used 2 X 12's to get the most bang for my buck. And the finish is Penofin oil. The seat and back conform to the body w/ lumbar etc. the design is from James at Kings.
  9. Tile top Patio end table

    We needed to update our cheesy patio table, and I had left over marble tiles. So I thought of this simple basic design, with a few elements to give it interest. Standard 2×4 cedar board from HD, tile is 12×12 and the table is 18 inches tall.
  10. His and Hers Patio Chairs

    A neighbor asked me to make these for his grandparents for Christmas a few years ago. The grandparents enjoyed sitting on their patio, but were starting to have difficulty because of joint and back problems. The grandfather is over 6 feet tall and had a hard time getting up from "normal"...
  11. barn wood adarondak chair

    I never made an adarondak chair before, and this is my first attempt. I didn't use any plans, just went off of a picture out of a magazine and added my own style to it. The seat, back, and arms were at one time a roof board from an old barn, and the rest was once a 2×6 rafter from the same barn...
  12. Barn Board Chair

    About 2 years ago a friend of mine bought a chair similar to this one from an Amish Store. The original was made with treated lumber and he asked me to make him 2 more like it out of cedar and he wanted them over sized (he's a bigger fellow). I took a couple of pictures of it before delivering...

  14. Cedar Outdoor Coffee Table with Concrete Top

    Hey guys, here is a cedar outdoor coffee table that I built and put a concrete top on it. The base is pretty simple and straight forward with a modern look, but it was my first time working with concrete. I did a video on the whole build and share some lessons I learned working with it. Might...
  15. Journey of a pile - first patio set

    This was a project for a customer. I bought this cedar which was actual 2×2" from a pile at a local lumber yard, had to pick through it but there were some really good pieces in it and the price was right at 20cents a piece! Figured I could do something from them even if it wasn't conventional...
  16. BBQ cart

    This cedar BBQ cart is a gift to my Dad. It was a fun build and was the most challenging build I've done to date. I got the plans from online by searching for BBQ cart. I used a lot of biscuits and pocket holes. It was a fun build, and I will probably make another for my family when the...

    I've got a Ridgid Granite top table saw that's worked pretty good for me. I've had some of the problems with the two piece fence tube others mentioned in other threads. I'm getting more space for the shop and would like to mount a router into the side table of the saw. I think that means I...
