Beautiful, beautiful work, folks.

There is something so warm and fundamental about items made from wood.

Makes me happy just to look at them.

Maggie,

Bet if you follow John home from Alumalina he'll give you the tour and a handful of sawdust as a souvenir.

This is a great thread - and I'm sure gonna be one of those ones that stays active for years.

Looking at the pictures already submitted it's pretty obvious there are a lot of talented folks on this forum - and some great looking shops!

Through most of my career my own "Stress Management Activity" was crafting reproductions of antique wall and mantel clocks. I'm kinda weirdly proud to say that at least a couple of them have made it into a family will. Post retirement I kinda shifted gears (clocks are damn expensive to make) and have been playing with the scrollsaw - still very relaxing - and a heck of a lot cheaper hobby!

The other thing I'm kinda liking about the scrollsaw is that I think I can take it on holiday - and enjoy it and the Airstream at the same time!

My shop is a modest one - typical of many - a garage shop that has too little space and too much stuff - but it has the tools I need and is a great place to spend my winter afternoons.

The two wall clocks are the last two wall clocks I've made. The scrollsaw pieces have been made in the last two years.

I was actually thinking exactly along those lines.

Handmade wooden items evoke very loving memories of my Danish grandfather, who was a carpenter and made a sideboard and hutch that I have....that go with a claw leg table and china cabinet they purchased.

Woodworkers must be basically good people, don'tcha think? The kind of folks you're just glad to know and have in your life.

Beautiful!

Fortunately there are still a few people that can appreciate things like this, versus the "got to have it now for the cheapest price types"

I took a cabinet making course from a guy up in the Jamestown, NC area. He was under contract to build two households worth of custom furniture, figured it would keep him in business for the next 3-5 years at that time. One was all Shaker style/inspired in cherry. The other household was using maple/walnut and most of the designs looked like arts and craft style to me.

Can't wait to get my shop up and going again, need something to keep me out of bars and off of street corners when I retire.

Below are some of my projcts, The first picture is of a hall table that I made from the Honey Locast tree that used to reside in my front yard. The National Power Grid folks decided that it might take of like an ICBM and hit a power line accross the street and cut it down. I had the trunk milled into lumber.

The shop is kida messy right now as I am finishing the other half of the basement and every thing is in my workshop right now.

Wow!!!!!

I love looking at all the things others build, and marvel at the talent you all have.

Woodworking is a hobby for me. Working on big computer systems pays the bills.

Aside from building everything inside Little Girl (which you can see on our thread), I've built all our kitchen cabinets, several built-ins in our house, and 7 cribs. Somewhere there's a Dustin's Crib thread that has pictures of the cribs.

Below are some pictures of other things I've built over the years.

The upper counter in our kitchen. It's a 1/4" veneer made from various hardwood strips.

Which she outgrew, so I made a base for it a few years later. Used the rest of her dad's cherry.
