    I built a 9ft high lighthouse for our church’s Vacation Bible School which had a nautical theme. A simple framework, covered by masonite (with the rough side out for texture) and an LED light shining up from the base. The “lens” is a clear vinyl ribbed shelf liner that mimics the fresnel lens used in lighthouses

    I’ve been using the contrasting woods lately. I love to make things for friends and family like this fishing rod rack for my buddy Robert, an outside potting bench for my wife and cutting boards for my 5 adult daughters. Regards from Western Australia. Rodney M.

    I told my 88 yrs old mother I wanted to build her a casket. She replied, “I’m not ready to go, yet!”. I told her if I waited ’til she was gone, then I couldn’t build it in time for her to use. This project has been a bit of a catharsis as it has allowed me to reflect on my mom, her life, and my giving her a final gift.

    I built a workbench to teach myself what I didn’t know that I didn’t know about building a bench. Some 300 hours later the project did not disappoint on being an excellent teacher of all I didn’t know.

    I saw a squirrel feeder in Tractor Supply last Christmas. I thought “I can make that with scraps” but didn’t want to measure it up in the store so I bought one for my sister as a “stocking stuffer” and used it as a reference to make this one for my wife. The hole in the chair is for a screw to secure a corncob-like food for the squirrel. I put it out in the yard and it lasted about a week. I found the remnants under a shrub 30 feet from where I placed it. Godzilla squirrel ?

    I made these from a Walnut tree the power company cut down on my property. I had a portable sawmill come over, then had the lumber dried in a solar kiln. Made one for my parents, one for a cousin. Little did I know I would be putting dad’s military flag from his funeral in it a couple months later. I now have it back at my house.

    This is an oak plant stand that I started on in early 1995. I had the center section with the drawer assembled and all other parts just cut out. None of the turnings were even started when I lost interest and tucked away all the parts under my workbench. We moved later that year. One day in February of 2018 I ran across the project and finally did the turnings and finished the project up. Happy wife!!

    Maloof inspired chairs with laminated back slats that flex and are book matched plus tables, regular chairs, and many other projects. It is hard to find enough rare carob wood to make a chair and this is only the second one I have made. Getting enough wood took over a year and significant money.

    This is a prototype wine holder made from 4 x 4″s. I intend to make the next one with alder wood and stain it in a cherry color. I have a template for this piece, so the biggest part is the glue-up in sections and then joining the sections together. Sanding is tedious, but rewarding.

    We were blessed to be able to turn tragedy into beautiful. Someone attempted to burn our church down and did extensive damage to the altar. When the church decided to remodel the altar, I asked for the damaged trim and wood and we painstakingly turned the wood into crosses. We gave them to our parishioners. The crosses were finished in Odie’s Dark oil

    I built a large cutting board with a thunderbird motif. It was too heavy to lug around. So I designed a chef’s table and used the cutting board as the top. The stainless steel cups are for pre-measuring ingredients. top right drawer has no drawer glides and can be used to catch fruit and vegetable dabree and easily emptied. The long, bottom drawers were build to hold standard size cookie sheets.

    Used a cordless 7″ Ryobi circular saw to avoid wires to make a panel saw for vertical and horizontal cuts. Used aluminum 10×30 bar for a straight fence with quad roller skate wheels to slide plywood into place. Bars and bearings are from CNC part suppliers for linear work. It’s mounted to the back of a rolling worktable. Drawer in work table has about 40LBS of weight to make sure it’s not tippy since the angle is minimal. Added stops to aluminum track for repeatable cuts.

    Outdoor patio table work in progress, used leftover 2×6 x6′ doug fir and pine boards. All of the board tops were planed smooth and sanded as well.Need to attached the legs as well But need suggestions as to what to use for a finish as it will be Outside on the deck under a deck awning . Looking to keep the natural look and colors of the wood so a solid stain or paint is a No go. A exterior product of course. poly, marine varnish etc. Should a Conditioner be applied first since I used Fir and Pine ??? All suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you

    Full sized milk wagon carriage. The plans was from an old broken down milk wagon from the early 1900 hundreds. It was almost a pile of kindling. It has been in many parades and shows. It took 1st place in the Great Lake International Draft Horse show at Michigan State University in the farm class wagons. Kind of a design and build project.

    Hi. I just have a question. I want to make resign coasters and a resign river table. Do I use the same resign and harder because in one video of a resign river table they use heat to take out the bubbles. But in making coasters or butcher blocks they use the heat to make cells in the ocean scene. I’m confused.

      Hello Brian,

      Thank you for contacting us.

      Heat is always what’s used to remove bubbles from epoxy. I’ve never seen it used to make the lace look in an ocean scene. In my experience that’s done with Oxide White pigment and rubbing alcohol. Jess shows this here https://www.wwgoa.com/video/making-ocean-resin-pour-017671/

      If you have any other questions, please chat, email, or call Customer Service.

    I really like the cedar planter George made. I’ve used that as a basis for making several more. I’ve made some modifications. The 1st is that I make the dirt tray 22″ wide, this is 2′ less the thickness of the lumber. 2nd, I cut the slats to fit sideways. This is plenty strong and doesn’t require bracing. One that I made is a U-shape. This was to show how a planter could be made specifically for a greenhouse. The full size is 6’x8′ with a 2′ opening to go between the side planting beds and get to back bed. I found, when making this, that using biscuits made alignment much easier when joining the upper and lower frames. One extra thing I incorporated is lining the inside with landscape paper.
    You don’t have a way to send a picture otherwise I’d attach pictures of this planter.
