My 7yo wanted to have some Halloween lawn and porch decorations - so we made some together from construction plywood.
My Woodworking Projects & Stories
In this section I am writing about my woodworking projects. They usually start with an idea that I or my wife got.
Sometimes it is plainly the answer to the question “is it worth it to spend a lot of money on something that shouldn’t be to hard to make myself?” - like cabinets or shelves for the garage or the workshop, or a raised plant bed.
Then there are things like tools, jigs or storage, that are needed in the process of building something else.
And sometimes I just want to have fun or do something else, getting away from the IT, etc…
During winter I’ve built a 16ft plant bed entirely from construction grade, leftover redwood from a construction site.
In about 15 months during a pandemic I’ve made desks for my kids, which will grow with them. But it was way harder than I first expected…
In this woodworking build I’ve used scraps from other projects to make a key rack with a built-in flower vase.
A small woodworking project where I used SketchUp first to determine what to build and how.
My very first woodworking project: a simple outdoor coffee table made from 2-by-4s.
