  2. Porch

    My friend wanted to replace their front porch, which was in very bad shape. I built this porch for them, just kind of making it up as I went along. It is made from pressure-treated woods and finished with Flood Natural-Tone Wood Finish.
  3. Dramatic Before and After

    This is a follow up to a project I posted previously. I had posted a picture of the porch when it was built but the project was incomplete because all the exterior repairs and painting where not finished. This was part of a full exterior rehab. The front porch was rebuilt and the back porch...
  4. Front Porch

    I, along with my wife and a few friends, painted and roofed my house this summer and I left the porch for last. This design was based off a fellow lumberjock who wrapped his posts and replaced his railings in white pine: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/18524. The railings were influenced by...
  5. Mother's Day Swing

    I built this swing for my wife for mothers day this year. Its up on blocks in my not-so-level yard for the moment until I build my island deck. Basic treated lumber, stained with Minwax Provincial and 2 coats of Thompson's water seal. I'll cut the chains off after I get it set up on my island...
  6. Completed Deck using SketchUp!

    This is my first attempt at using SketchUp. It took a long time to draw this, because I was learning the program while drawing the plan. It was a little nerve racking, but the final outcome was very satisfying. You may look at the progress in My Blog Series...
  7. 1930 Porch Railing Recreation...

    I was asked by a friend of mine to create the original porch railing of his 1930 craftsman style home. I wasn't sure I was up for this job and honestly thought I had gotten myself in over my head. I am not a carpenter. I just enjoy working with wood. I have very little training and what I do...

  9. Pergola

    My client built their house in a nice neighborhood with a wooded lot behind them. After a few years, the Association where they live decided to put a walking trail right behind their house, so they wanted some privacy. This pergola is one of my favorites, and they were very pleased with the...
  10. Traditional Porch

    This is a back porch I finished at the end of January. It was built with details to match a porch on the front of the house. The porch is 14' x 6'. The painting of the porch and siding will be completed in the coming months. I will update the pictures when the painting is done.
  11. Candle centerpeice

    I found the glass holders and they were crying to be displayed. The legs are poplar ebonyized while the centera are oak recovered from a pallet, all covered in gloss poly. I found 9 of the large size 'globes' but only 2 small ones. I expect to use only the battery operated tea lights but the...
  12. Porch swing

    My neighbors down the road threw out a bunch of old 2X6's during a remodel. So, I salvaged them and made this porch swing out of it. Added the duck from a piece of cedar I had to add a little decoration to it. Covered it all with Thompson's Water Seal (not pictured).
  13. Large Log Cabin Birdfeeder

    This is a large log cabin birdfeeder I built to scale (1"=1'). The cabin measures 2' x 4' with a 1' wrap around covered porch which makes the overall dimensions 4' x 6'. The feeder is mounted aprox. 6' off the ground on a real cherry tree base I had to cut due to disease. As you can see by the...
  14. My new screened porch

    So my wife decided that we needed a new deck…which turned into a new screened porch. It took me a month to complete. Other than some help from neighbors to lift the header and ledger boards, I did all the work myself. (the header and ledger boards are stacked 2×10s with 1/2 inch ply in the...
  15. Porch Table

    My wife wanted a place to set some decorations on the porch. As you can see in the first picture, I have an abundance of cedar. Some of it is for a toddler swing set I have been asked to build for our church. I also thought it would look good with the cedar porch swing I made earlier this year...
  16. Rotten railing repair

    My porch railing had a rotten spot in the column, so I decided to repair rather than replace. I chiseled out a chunk and just glued a square piece of 2×4, then used rasps to duplicate the profile.
  17. Adirondack Chairs & Porch Swing

    I made this furniture from cedar fence board purchased from a big box store. This seemed like a good idea at first, but if I had a mulligan I would pay a bit extra for better stock. I used plans for the chairs and improvised with the ottomans and porch swing. I can't say that I use the...
  18. Anniversary Box

    Ok so some of you may have seen my blog about a prototype for this. The nice box is shown here. I made it out of a block of Leopardwood that I picked up at Woodcraft. Since I do not have a bandsaw I used the miter saw to saw off a piece for the lid. I was able to use my drill press with a...
