  1. Deck Cooler Box

    This is deck cooler box I built using treated fence pickets. I basically wrapped a Coleman cooler with them and put it on legs. I did add a brass faucet to the drain and handles for some extra character. Price is well over $100 in stores for these and with the treated and big box store cooler...
  2. Roubo Workbench (Hand tools Only)

    In my attempt to move over to a hand tool lifestyle, I decided to upgrade my workbench to a Roubo, since they are all the rage. This is Roy Underhill's version. I don't have his book, so I had to redesign it to fit what I remember it as, keeping his basic vision as a base to work off of. I biult...
  3. Mystery Project (Pot Hanger)

    We snuck away one weekend in September to spend a couple nights at the beach. We ended up staying in Nags Head at a little rental house. The owner lived next door and had a beautiful house with a large second floor deck on the front. There were some very odd looking 2×2s nailed to the sides...
  4. Rear fence

    I was commisioned to build this fence because the old fence was rotten and about to fall apart. we decided to use 5/4×6 for the pickets and chose vinyl lattice for the top. Once it begins to warm up again and stay dry, I will seal it.
  5. The Beast

    I call these steps "The Beast" because they remind me of a famous wooden roller coaster in my neck of the woods of the same name. The owner bought this house and needed new steps so she could move in. It was a challenge as I had to pretty much design on the fly. I dug some new footers and used...
  6. Play set

    I built this play set for the kids. It has two towers, monkey bars, tire swing, rock climbing walls, two slides, two swings for kids, porch swing for adults, various wheels, telescope, benches, ladder, and sand boxes under the towers.
  7. Treated wood projects

    I built a Leopold Bench, a tall table to use while cooking, and a dual fryer cover The Leopold bench is built using 2×8s, 2×6s, and a 2×10. I found the plans on Pinterest, cute little bench for the backyard. The bench is 4 foot long, 2.5 feet tall, and 2.5 foot deep. The table is 2×4s, with...
  8. Bridge work (Non-dental)

    After moving my in-laws on to my lot next door, I constructed a little bridge for them to cross the ditch to get to my house to drink coffee every afternoon. All treated lumber, deck and hand rails are from 1"X6" pine, base is of 2"X6" pine, all posts and bracing are 4"X4". Balusters are 2"X2"...
  9. TOILET PAPER HOLDERS

    Base was made of 3 side ''live edge'' walnut board, dimensions 30×15x2cm. I turned dovels of firwood, diameter 30mm which were glued and screwed into 2/3 thickness deep hole. Finish wood oil. Serves very well in one barn style made tavern (toilet).
  10. Front Stoop redo

    Been in our house for twenty years, and never liked the front stoop. It dawned on me that I am a carpenter…(retired) so, DOH! Maybe I should do something about it. Posts are fir 4×4, wrapped with KD treated pine. Railings and pickets are also KD pine; the pickets I made because I hate the poor...
  11. Garden Bench

    This little garden bench was 7 years in the making. My step-mother showed me a photo of this garden bench from a magazine and asked me if I could build it for her. I gladly told her I would make it. I finally built it this week and delivered it to her yesterday. She was extremely happy with...
  12. Adirondack chairs

    I made this set of Adirondack chairs last summer for my wife and I. We needed something to sit on around the fire up at camp. The chairs are made from 2×8 and 5/4 treated lumber so they can be left outside during the unpredictable Pennsylvania weather. They are nice to sit in (when the kids...
  13. Deck

    Well, I am not "100%" done yet but I couldn't resist posting any longer. I still have skirting to put around base (which will be made of vertical deck scraps), a few areas of touch up painting, grass to restore, etc. But who knows how long that will take me just working evening and weekends...
  14. Frank Lloyd Wright Inspired Murphy Bed | Bookcases| Custom

    Here we added some bookcases to the Frank Lloyd Wright inspired murphy bed. The 18" bookcases have two drawers and a pull out tray. The drawers are inset to keep more with the style. The top section has adjustable shelves. I had to pull the bookcases out because of how I built the light bar...
  15. Adirondack set

    I built these a while back. They are built from treated southern yellow pine. I have probably sold at least 200 sets of these over the last few years. They are my design, using the best I've seen from others. The main framework is out of 2×4 and 2×6 with 5/4×6 for the arms and 1×4and 1×2 slats...
  16. Outdoor bench

    Put together this bench for our back patio. It was made of treated lumber so it is pretty heavy right now. Not much to say about this project, though the plans did leave options for adjusting the pitch of the seat and back for comfort. So it is a pretty good seat for an extended time.
  17. Planter Table/Versatile

    I just completed another project for my wife. She wanted a planting table so I constructed this based on my own design and custom built for her needs. I installed a grated top with a catch tub below so the overflow dirt from the pots will drop into the tub and can be re-used. The grate can be...
  18. Wood & Lumber
    My dad gave me this redwood 4×6 that he "acquired" when he worked at one of the power plants in town. He was using it as a stop for a washout, so the dirt in his yard didn't wash out when it rained. Like the lumber hoarder I am, I took it, even though I have no room for it. Recently, I decided...
