    Just finished this swing for my parents. This is my second build of this design - first was for my wife and has been in use for about 10 years. The second one got some design/hardware upgrades and I think it turned out pretty well. The plans are here...

    Large Outdoor building set for kids

    My daughter has taken to raiding my scraps and "building" things in the yard. I would like to encourage this :).

    white oak for outdoor use question

    I was reading up on wood for outdoor use and found that white oak seems like a suitable wood. I was also considering cedar. I just wanted to verify it with you guys. It would be for a grill cart that will be kept under a grill cover but stored outside so I don't think it would be directly...

    Outdoor Table for the LOML

    Finally a project finished. I have mentioned before that the loml enjoys feeding and caring for birds, and I mean loves it. She had been setting seeds and water on an old wooden spool that I pulled out of the dumpster at work and painted several years ago. The spool has seen its better days and...
