The gazebo was inspired by a woodworking project book. The basic structural design was taken from the plans. The roof and railing are design modifications. The brick enclosure was added to keep critters from finding a home.

The lumber for these kitchen cabinets was milled from old heart pine 2x4's and 2x6's taken from the interior walls of the house during a remodeling project. Some of the lumber had so much pine resin in them that thin cut boards were actually translucent. Several saw blades were damaged from hidden nails.

TV Cabinet

This is actually a client project. It was one of the first projects when I opened the shop on Hickory Ave. I have modified the cabinet two times. First was when the TV was replaced with a flat screen TV. The second was when the TV was removed and shelving installed in the opening.
