  1. Fence Panel Path Lights

    Preparing for a rustic wedding we came upon the idea to make path lights out of the wood from an old fence that was blown down during Hurricane Matthew. The base on each was about 12" deep and had room to hold a paver brick for stability and a block of wet foam for the flowers that went into it...
  2. Wedding Favors Display

    Much like my path lights this stand was built out of wood from old fence panels. The only new(ish) wood was some plywood used for the base of each tray and a small piece of chalk board.
  3. Long under bar console table

    Finished my 60" long console table to fill the space under the breakfast bar which we never, ever used as a breakfast bar lol. i'll put my printers on the bottom shelf, printer supplies in one drawer, and office supplies in the other 2. this table started out as having 2 drawers, but rather than...
  4. Rustic Bow Rack

    Made this for an avid bow hunter. Not real complex from a woodworking standpoint but I thought the creativity of materials was interesting. He had a few hooves that he wanted to utilize for a coat rack or bow stand. Mounted them along with some old bolts to hold his bow and a few coats. Made...
  5. Rustic Cabin

    I am not sure if this falls under the woodworking projects umbrella but… it involved a ton of wood and it was definitely work. My Dad and I have been building this hunting cabin for quite some time. The pine trees that were used for the porch columns, rafters, ridge poles and main beam were...
  6. Oak Pallet Scrap Coasters

    I had some leftover scraps of pallet wood I had used for another project. A little glue up, size them on the table saw, then round over the edges on the router table. They will eventually just have a clear finish on them once it gets warm enough to start spraying again lol.
  7. Custom XL Sliding Barn Door

    Here's a massive sliding barn door I recently made for a customer. This thing weighs about 400-500 lbs. and is made of steel, birch plywood, and grey hemlock siding from our lot. It measures 64" wide and 105" tall and slides over into a recess the customer had built into the room. We sprayed the...
  8. Reclaimed Wide Plank Heart Pine Barn Wood Flooring

    I milled this floor from our reclaimed "Granary Boards". Most of this wood came from barns in Pennsylvania that were 150-300 years old. I ran the rough boards through the planer and wide belt sander, then ripped it to the correct widths. Then I ran them all through the shaper with a flooring...
  9. Contemporary Reclaimed Barn Wood Side Table

    This contemporary table was one I built for fun. It's made from a reclaimed white oak "door buck" (threshold) from a stack we have at the yard. It's 3" thick and 24"x24". The cube is a 24"x24"x24" steel frame I welded and then had chrome dipped. It's a very simple design. I like having all the...
  10. Oak table and benches

    the table is oak with a trestle base. It is 6'6" long by 51" wide and can open up to9'6" long with three 1' leaves. The table replaces one from an original set of furniture from my family's home. The old table was cut up to make benches.
  11. Joinery Bench on a Bench / Moxon with history

    When planning my workbench build, I realized that having something to raise the work to do joinery and other small tasks would be useful. Lysdexic built a beautiful bench on a bench that served as inspiration. While thinking it over, I happened upon this antique vise-like object on ebay...
  12. Recylced wood projects, Bench Swing, Arbor, Draw Knife Sheaths

    Here are some projects where I used recycled cedar. The lumber came from my kids playground that I have built about 13 years ago. It has been moved once when we moved to our new house. I think I have pay about $700 at the time for the new timber from the hardware store. Now my boy is 17 and...
  13. Reclaimed Red Oak Countertop

    Here's a project where we wanted to make the old wood look new. We have a pile of red oak I've been making countertops and tables from. Here I laminated a bunch of 3/4×2" strips together to create a long grain butcher block countertop. It sure is nice having a widebelt sander for projects like...
  14. "Pear" of shop mallets: From firewood to functional

    Needing a good mallet or two for the shop, instead of going to the lumberyard, I went to the firewood pile. The smaller mallet and the head of the larger are made from pear wood, and the handle of the large mallet is soft maple. Finished with BLO. The maple was from a tree that we had taken...
  15. Segmented Maple and Ebony Cigar Pens

    So I went down somewhat of a pen "rabbit hole" and delayed finishing my workbench after watching Gabe Castro make several amazing pens on YouTube. These are my first attempts at segmented blanks, but I am happy with the results even if they are cut freehand. The first is Ebony with "blue steel"...
  16. Simple Reclaimed Beam Mantle

    This is one of the h4s (hand-hewn four sides) softwood beams from our barn wood lot. The customer picked it out and gave us the dimensions. They wanted it natural (unfinished). It's held up by a red oak french cleat. The cleat sits in a routed out pocket in the back of the beam and is 3/4"...
  17. US Navy EA-18 Growler

    The wood shop smells of red wine after cutting up old wine barrel staves. I love to repurpose old wood and enjoy creating something totally new. This Growler is 27 inches long and 22 inches wide. I left rough instead of putting a clear coat on so I can smell the wine. My NY's plan is to start...
  18. Baby Grand Piano Bookcase Conversion

    This was a big build! Commissioned by a friend to turn a Baby Grand Piano with a damaged sound board into a book case for their music room. I started by stripping the piano, build up the frame what help the sound board, veneered the inside with mahogany to match the outside. Inset the...
  19. Pallet to Planters

    My first pallet wood project! I've had the pallet sitting in the pole barn for about six months. Wood is maple, very splitty and splintery. I needed a few cheap planter boxes to temporarily hold divisions from my raspberry patch. Since the maple was split at the nails and impossible to easily...
  20. Wine Barrel Old Glory

    Love making these wine barrel flags. Each one has it's own look and comes to life after clear coating.
