King size headboard

Dimensional Lumber Headboard
In this project I used regular 1x, 2x and untreated 4x4 material. I started by cutting all the boards to size and jointing the 4x4's to get a nice clean edge on one side. Next I laid two 1x4's on the ground in a vertical fashion and laid 1x12's on top of those in a horizontal fashion. I glued...

KIDS STEP STOOL

Step Stool
In the Projects tab on this website you'll find a post on another step stool build, but these are done a little different. I added hand holes on the sides for handles so the little ones can pick it up and carry it wherever they need it and these stools don't have the storage compartment like the previous one...

Here birdie birdie…. squirrel!

Bird House
  My kids and I decided to build their very first bird house. It was quite the challenge keeping them engaged, but we managed to get through it. We started by cutting some wood at random lengths. I didn't want to get too complicated. They are 4 and 2. After getting an idea of what we wanted the bird house...

Barn wood frame with stitches

*MAY BE GRAPHIC FOR SOME* (pic of fresh stitches)Basic frame project with a little excitement! I was making a frame for a Christmas gift when I nearly cut my thumb off. I had already cut the frame pieces and cut a rabbit to accept the glass, but then had to trim some off the 45’s...

Ammo box

A good friend of mine was getting married and his fiance asked me to make their “guestbook”. Here’s the inspiration she gave me (from Pintrest)... This “guestbook” will basically be a shallow shadow box. Instead of signing a traditional guestbook you would sign a limb cut-off and drop it into the frame. Kinda like...

Router table (table saw wing)

I started not to post this because I butchered the top with my plunge router. I figured I would show my mistakes and all. It might help someone else. This is my first “shop tool/jig” project so bare that in mind while looking. If there is anything you see that I can improve please let me know. I...

Sheet goods storage

This isn’t my first project, but it is my first to post. This is my sheet goods storage. It is 2.5’ wide and 9’ tall with roughly two 11” sections (2 right compartments, top and bottom), far right being for full sheet goods on end; middle section top for half sheets and middle section...

HOPE Project (pallet wood)

First of all, I can’t take full credit for this project, but I wanted to share it because it turned out so awesome. Our youth pastor, his wife (and her mom) and I made these 3D letters that spell HOPE for our church stage during a sermon series...
