Veggie Hod Mother's day gift

Veggie Hod Mother's day giftThis is not fine woodworking but it was a fun project. I didn't know what a Veggie Hod was until a year ago and basically it's a outdoor colander and basket. You pick your vegetables and you can rinse them off in the basket outside with the garden hose. One is for my wife and the other is for a friend who told me about these. Used a lot of scrap cedar and some 1/2” wire. You can find plans online but mine are 20 1/4” Length, 11 1/2” Width, 9 1/4” Deep, 16 1/4” Tall and used a 1 1/4” dowel. In my opinion I made them slightly too big and heavy. Trim the depth a inch and maybe the dowel to 1” if you're making them for your wives. The hard part is cutting and shaping the wire to the basket. Thanks for taken a look.

King Size Bed

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


King Size BedSo, a friend of mine had replaced his queen sized bed with a King size bed. He only purchased the matress and box spring. Then they asked me if I would be able to build a king size frame for their new matress set. I agreed. The total cost for this project was $163.00 which was their cost. No labor, no other charges, just the cost of materials which they reimbursed me for. They do an awful lot for our local VFW and it was the least I could do, and a labor of love. The wife had only one request which was to have a moose on the head board. So I put my creative juices to work and came up with heart that has the head of a male moose on one side and the female on the other side. All out of pine.
