Finished bench and other projects...

I finally finished the bench I built for my friend... Here is the result: I figured while I'm showing that off, I might as well show a few other projects I have built. First up is the frame for this porch swing... Here is the aquarium stand I built for my 55 gallon tank. Next up is the bench I built my dad for Christmas last year... And here is the bench I built my sister for her birthday. I love getting out in the garage and building this stuff... It's great to turn a pile of boards into something useful... The results thrill me every time. If I thought I could live off of it, I'd do this stuff full time instead of working... Maybe when I retire.....

Did you paint these, too? I really like the snowman and the birdhouses. Have you ever showed them at a craft fair?

Hello, Michele sent me.

Love your work... and I believe it it brings you that much pleasure, then you should be able to make a living doing it. Might not happen overnight, but it could happen!

Do the thing you love and the money will follow. At least that is what I'm hoping that will happen with my painting!

Enjoyed the site!
