Wagon Wheel Picnic Table
Before we sell new plans in our store Jim likes to build a prototype just to ensure all parts are the correct size and also to create a booklet to go with the plan to help describe the steps in building the project.
Shipping Container: The Strapping
We had this 40 foot shipping container delivered two years ago and are finally getting around to covering up the ugly.
More Maritime Projects
We had a little fun this weekend creating new Maritime themed projects.
Wood slice dehydrator
The ultimate in woodworking and baking… birch cookies 🙂 I converted the solar panel to see if this would work.
Scrolling the Labrador coast
Working on some new projects coming soon. The other day I was working on the map of Labrador.
Plywood lamp base
This was our first time building a wooden lamp base and it turned out better than we imagined. If you would like to make your own follow along and see how easy it is to build.
Barkley the Bulldog bench dog
Something new in the workshop today, a new bench dog. This little guy showed up from the scrap wood pile. A couple layers of 3/4 inch plywood and a few nails. Would look fun just about any place, outdoors in the garden or on the desk as a paper weight. We’ve named him Barkley. 🙂

Small 3D Moose plywood project
Today I started on designing another of our 3D moose projects. When we do these types of projects, I typically like to make a small prototype first, to get an overall feel for the design.
Rustic tree carvings
As recently seen on Arbortech® Youtube channel, they featured a video on carving a small tree. So I thought I’d have a crack at it. I learned pretty soon that a dry piece of pine may not be the best material for the desired effect.
