In the middle of a house renovation and adding some simple woodworking projects. Most of the house was pulled down to the studs. Decided to go with butcherblock counter tops and giving the kitchen cabinets a facelift. Still have a long way to go, but you can see some progress now.
That butcher block doesn’t look like it’s going to be fun to move around. Gonna turn out nice though I’d bet. I look forward to the finished product.

Well I made something this past weekend. Thought I would share. I have been wanting a Bluetooth speaker for a few years now, but I couldn't decide on one to choose. Then I saw a kit where you can make your own. All of the electronics are taken care of, you just need to make a box to attach them to. I just so happened to have a piece of a pear tree that I thought was too neat to burn. It had a pretty big split in it from drying, but I was able to stabilize that with some epoxy. Turned out pretty nicely.

Finished my bar a little over a year ago, told myself I would make a couple stools to go with it. Finally got around to making one. The wood are wine barrel staves. They're curved, tapered, and the edges are cut on an angle - what a PITA to work with.

I have wanted to make stools out of a wine barrel, but I figured it would be a lot less fun than I anticipated. Looks like you did a great job though.

Wife wanted a bench for the dinner table. In two years of marriage, I have found out that getting the honey do list done in a timely manner, equates to more days I can hunt come the fall!

This is some of the recent honey do list I've done. My wife has been finding a lot of things for me to make on pintrest during her time off from work for the corona. Plus I made a few things for me with scrap wood. Some floating shelves for my daughters room. Live edge shelves for the upstairs bathroom. New pantry door. New doggy door for the stairs. I made a little pedestal for the dead head spike elk I found. Plus made an AZ plaque for my daughters first big game animal she shot this year in AZ. I would say I'm a tinkerer, I have more ambition then skills.

Ok, it's time for me to post my most recent completed project.

This one had been in process for at least 5 years. My sister moved into a house with a kitchen island with an ugly blue countertop. I told her I would make her something better.

A few months later, a friend of mine got me hooked up with some reclaimed oak that had been church pews. My sister is pretty involved with her church so I thought that would be perfect, plus it was 1-1/4" thick making it perfect for a counter.

But then life gets in the way and the partially built counter sat in my garage for 3-4 years. This summer I got back to work and finally finished it up and installed it.

I had to hide a butt joint in the middle so I inlaid some plum wood from my dad's backyard in a cross motif. I finished the ends of the counter with a breadboard end made of ash from a tree we took down on the family farm out in South Dakota. I pegged it on with some dowels I made from more of that plum wood.

Im glad to finally be done with the project and my sister really loves it.

Here's a couple of things for the guns: cherry case for Citori O/U, oak double gun case for Browning A5 Magnum and Light Twelve, oak ammo box for trap/skeet, and collapsible rest for sighting in my rifle. Note to self: move the backstop a few yards further.

Nowhere near the skills of other woodworkers here .
Made bunches of wooden toys for Christmas for 40 years for my little brother and sisters,kids,friends and relatives. Wife paints them. All are made from trees from our wood lot in PA.
These are being delivered today from Creston Ca to Grand daughters in Long Beach.
Didn't take them on their flights back. IMG_20201020_092542~3.jpg
They are from past Christmas.
They have almost out grown them.
