What kind of hand saw for this job?

I’m planning a cantilevered pergola for my backyard modeled after the one in the photo. I designed it and bought the materials yesterday. I have a good handle on how to get it assembled (figuring out how to get the rafters up by myself was the...

Getting too Old for this kind of stuff

Sometimes I don’t think. I built this powder bath vanity in 1 pc not putting enough thought into the install. I had to scribe it to the walls…..before bringing it into the bathroom. I had to cut out for the tile base…before bringing it...

Oval cut

I’m wrapping up a small white oak night table for one of my daughters and am planning to try to get one more project done before winter shuts me down. I really want to give an older daughter a solid cherry, oval coffee table. My first hurdle is...

Building A Workbench

My good old faithful workbench (apparently it’s actually a potting bench) is showing signs of old age and neglect. I have been looking after it as best I can but it is a bit more rickety now and the surface is uneven due to damp conditions. So...
