  1. New band stand for City Park refurbishment

    I am in charge of designing and implementing a major upgrade to our small town park. I donate my labor, and either the City or a local non-profit covers my materials expenses. We had many requests to add a facility for bands to play in the park. After much research, I found a design I liked...
  2. Outdoor trash can holder

    This is a new outdoor trash can holder I built to replace the one that was hit by a car last winter. I used 5/4 pressure treated with 4×4 corner posts. I mortised and pocket screwed the 5/4 to the posts. and added 1/2" conduit for accent. I capped it off with ripped down 5/4 and pocket screwed...
  3. new awning for the back door

    Here's a new awning I made to go over my back door after the old aluminum one collapsed in a snow storm. The drawing of the awning is what I did in SketchUp before building it. It is made from pressure treated wood. The top is made from inexpensive decking boards. I wanted to use cedar but...
  4. Outdoor Firewood Storage

    Pressure treated 2X4 construction. Corrugated plastic top
  5. The throne

    I am not sure if this counts as furniture, but I thought I would slowly build some chairs for use by the fire pit. I thought it would give me some good experience. Well, it's big, it's sturdy and boy is it uncomfortable! The lesson that I learned - don't use 2×4s for a chair! Just kidding. It...
  6. Deck makeover

    My deck was looking really bad, old worn and tried to paint some concrete paint stuff that was an outright failure. So… I started replacing all the deck boards and the railings and then decided the balusters were tired looking also and decided to go with stainless steel cable. Wife loves it!
  7. Small swing set

    My wife asked me to design and build a small swing set for our grand-daughter. The top piece is 4×4 pressure treated, 72 inches long. The rest is pressure-treated 2×4's. My grand-daughter sure likes her new swing set! For more details, you can see my woodworking web site here. thanks!
  8. Deck, Gave up our garden... Hurricane Irma made me do it.

    It's been awhile since I posted a project. I've been really busy getting things back to normal. A Lightning strike hit in our front yard and killed one of our nice Queen palm trees on Aug 31st; I had to remove the palm and fix the lawn. Then a week later Hurricane Irma caused some damage. She...
  9. Pressure treated lumber makes great furniture

    No, I didn't build the ironwood glider. That glider, though, precipitated the table project. We needed two side tables to complement the new glider on the front porch, so what better to build them out of than decking material? Here you see the wood needed for the two tables at is started, then...
  10. Yellawood Garden Bench

    Here is the garden bench I built for my wife on mothers day (yeah a little late on posting this). It is made of standard pressure treated home center lumber. I built it in a single day using nothing more than my miter saw and a cordless drill/driver. It went together very easily and is quite...
  11. Pergola for my parents in law

    Last hurricane took for the flimsy aluminum pergola at my parents in law house so for Christmas I offered to build them a new one with some better odds This is by no means a fine woodworking project but it was very refreshing to build a structure like this in 2 days - with a week in between to...
  12. Cedar & Pressure Treated Window Box

    With Summer around the corner I decided to make some new window boxes, I am using Cedar wood on the first box and see how I fair with it. To be honest the Cedar wood that I get from the bog box store isn't usually that great, but I really love the look and smell of the wood. I needed to make a...
  13. Adirondack Chair

    So, this is my favorite project I have made so far. We have a fire pit area in our back yard where we have had plastic Adirondack chairs for years. Well, these plastic chairs are now finally starting to break down. So, instead of buying more plastic ones, I decided I would start to make some...
  14. 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...
  15. BIRD FEEDER for 20 lb bag of seed.

    This was made because, although I love watching these beautiful creatures in my yard, I hate having to constantly re-fill the store bought feeders… It is made with scraps of Pressure Treated plywood, aluminum drip edge for the roof with a copper weather flap opening. So I keep a funnel (really a...
  16. Adirondack - Reclinable

    So when I made my first Adirondack I realized that I might be able to make it reclinable in a manner similar to a beach chair. It turned out my idea worked. I built this chair similar to the last one. I started with attaching the seat bottom legs to the front legs with 4 deck screws. Then I...
  17. Nanny Rocker

    Nanny Rocker at the Ninth Annual Texas Furniture Makers held at Kerrville,Texas. Chair was built using black walnut. Design was influenced by Scott Morrison.
  18. Customer wanted a simple 10x14 deck. Completed 05/18/11

    We've done bigger. We've done fancier. Some we've stained and others painted. We've done "spiderweb", "chippendale" and made-up-on-the-fly railing designs… But the customer wanted "simple but sturdy", so of course we obliged. But, simple never means skimping on structure or quality. This...
  19. Bird house

    So I decided to remake the bird house that was demolished over the winter and Kay in a heap on the grass… This was made in a couple of hours with one 8' length of 1×6… It tuned out awesome and I had to add the mounting piece of wood and added some perched on it… I hope you like it….
