Been building these for about 2 months now. This one is for a silent auction fund-raiser for my daughter's non-profit, The Drama Studio. Sounds great amplified and played with a slide!!

Nice! Been toying with the idea of building one. Maybe some day. I have the ohlookanothercoolprojectIcando - itis. Wish I could play one of those like Seasick Steve can.

I've been looking at this for a while now....... Damn that's nice. Looks like you are headed in the right direction. I can't wait to see the finished product.

So this one seems a little weird to me... Student asked me this week if I could help him on his history report. Not generally my area of expertise... Until he said he wanted to build a model plow. We came up with a design together and I thought it looked kinda cool so I built one to kind of work the bugs out, then helped him build his. It's definitely not scale, and the wood we built it from sure sucks but its kind of cool for a slap together oh-hey-this-is-due-tomorrow kind of project.

It was pretty fun to figure out. I'm intrigued by it too... Planning on doing a little more research, getting some decent wood, and trying to build a more accurate model for my Dad. He'd love this.

I do a lot of work in old Cleveland neighborhoods. There are a lot of variations and misc. details. to the architecture.

This is a retrofitted storm window frame. (template) . The actual pieces will be made from a composite (AZEK or something).

I wanted a pencil holder that would keep my mechanical pencils organized by diameter and grade.

Had to be quick and dirty, so I threw this together this evening; just a block of hickory and a couple strips of plexi.



Not sure how I like it yet. Seems OK, we'll see how it feels in use.

But give the dial-up guys a break, and only quote one pic.

That bar is very nice. Great job.

Here are a few of mine.


Bed made of solid Ash. (What bats are made of in case you didn't know).













Made the next two for friends. The guy in the pic is a friend and we have built a few kayaks together.





The dog liked my paddle.
