    This thread is for makers. From wood, metal to balloon animals, anything goes.

    My son is studying ancient Egypt in school. His latest assignment was working with a parent to make something in relation to the subject. Of course, we waited until the day before the project was due. We thought a pyramid would be the easiest. I had a pine 1x8 I thought would be perfect. Well, we both got a lesson in geometry. Figuring out how many degrees to cut compound miters at wasn't as simple as I thought. We did manage to get the mitered edges perfect surprisingly.

    Had to round over all edges with a sanding block because they were sharp. Then I used a router and made hieroglyphics that represent each letter of his first name. Then used woodfiller to give it an inlay appearance.

    Yep. My wife wanted farmhouse style vanities during our latest remodel and nobody sells them around here. So I built them. Pretty easy actually. It's all 90° cuts and pocket holes.

    Wife wanted a pair of night stands asap. I knocked 2 of these out in quick fashion thanks to pocket holes. Mortise and tenon joinery wouldn't look any different unless you look up under the skirt.

    I think pocket holes get a bad rap. They are perfect in many situations. Are they good for all? No, but they are quite strong if you do them right and use good wood and glue just like any other joint.

    Every sandwich rises to the next level when you toast the bread! Burgers and bbq sandwiches are nothing more than gut wadding until you toast the buns, hun!

    Still working on my kitchen remodel: finished the floor, which is the original 1939 yellow pine 2 1/4" strips that had been covered with linoleum since forever. I removed the linoleum, sanded, stained with Dark Walnut stain, and applied 8 coats of semi-gloss poly. The floors in the rest of the house are the original honey oak, as are the kitchen cabinets that I installed. Waiting on the solid countertops to be delivered. Meanwhile, I made a loaf of French bread in the breadmaker.

    I bet the grain in that yellow pine really pops with that walnut stain!
