  9. Bookmatched antique heart pine cornhole boards

    I'm relatively new to LJ, just discovered the projects section so I'll post up a few of my favorites. I built these for myself, they drove me to buy a riser block for my bandsaw! I started with rough cut 2×10, what I actually resawed after trimming was right at 8" I cut from each side on the...
  10. Stained concrete and wood fence

    I am redoing my yard of my (new to me) house. this was a painted brick wall with a 5 Inch concrete cap. I made a fence just tall enough to fit under the cap, all scrap wood. As I was staining it red oak i got some on the cream colored concrete. thought it looked good so I did the whole cap...
  11. Fence Gate

    When I bought my house in May of this year, the fence was in pretty good shape except for one of the gates.

    A little late posting this one.

What better excuse for a fun little project than to keep my little princess...
  15. Easter Crosses

    Easter 2020, when COVID blew everything up, I made some crosses out of old ceder fence pickets, then posted online offering no-contact porch dropoff (free) to anyone who wanted one. Ended up delivering about a dozen. Quick, fun, satisfying little project. Pickets are planed one side only, so...

  18. gazebo or pergola or trellis... I dont know what to call it!!! and a hand-rail.

    a redwood structure I just finished a few weeks ago. i need to upgrade my work camera, the dates are wrong.

    I made this today for my mother's 70th birthday she loves plants and flowers and has been asking me to build her a trellis or two. This obelisk is obviously super rustic- nothing fancy- easy to build (screws and nails no mortise and tenon at all.) It is made of locust with grapevine accents...
  20. Outhouse for little people

    My Mother has a nice back yard, but it has an ugly old well casing sticking up in the middle of it. I couldn't stand it any more. I browsed the internet for ideas, squished them all together and came up with this. It is 14" square at the base and about four feet tall. My plans consisted of a...
