    A few of the things I've made

    I had to knock the corners off the benches because my grand kids kept on whacking their heads on them.

    Family room. A duplicate end table is on the other side of the room.

    Learned a lot from my mistakes on this one

    loml wanted a place to store "upstairs stuff".
    Got to come up with a design for a new mantle for the fireplace in the dining room.

    I made the mantle clock in the picture from a piece of the oak that I used to make a 5 foot cross for my mothers grave.

    I've made a bunch of other stuff, nothing sophisticated, toy boxes, chests, tables...mostly for the kids.

    Planned projects...cherry secretary, cherry top trestle table for the dining room (gotta be big, lots of kids and grand kids. We do Sunday dinner and every holiday at our house), Hutch for dining room, maple candle stands. The last of my 5 daughters (wahoo !!!) is getting married Sept 12th and I'm just getting ready to start a hope chest for her.

    Very nice projects!!!!! The table and benches, exact ones I plan to build someday! Did you build the rocker and the hutch in the one picture?

    Dutch ovens, do you cook in them there? That would be very convenient!!

    Thanks for sharing!

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Nice projects Bob, very fine craftsmanship in them from what I can tell. I think that is one of the biggest cats I've seen. Or is that just a kids table?

    That is one big cat. He is like a dog, very friendly and follows me everywhere. My 3 year old granddaughter calls him "happy kitty"

    The Beehive (dutch oven) does work. I've only tried it once about 10 years ago. I had the fireplace piped for bottled gas a few years ago so now it doesn't get hot enough to cook.


    I built the hutch, the chair was built in the 1700's. I'm old but not that old. I've never tried to build a chair, but it would be fun.
    Thanks for the comments, very much appreciated.

    Good stuff all around, Bob. Sounds like you need to get moving on that hope chest.
