Yakety AxeI really love good clean guitar of all genres. Chet Atkins was a major influence on many of them. I took a few liberties with this pattern by Charles Dearing and knocked this out on my scrollsaw. The guitar neck was especially tedious. I hope you all like it.

Grand daughters paintable bird feederMy grand daughter likes to paint things and also likes to watch the birds at feeders.So Pops to the rescue my girl and her 5 friends have something to decorate and put stickers on whatever they want. Then they get to place the feeder and watch the birds visit the feeder they decorated.Made from 8 ft cedar picket, and scrap plexiglass, hinged the lids so the little ones don't make a mess filling the feeders.

Walnut Slab Patio Table with Custom Base

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Walnut Slab Patio Table with Custom BaseThis walnut slab I acquired a while back and was struggling for ideas of how to use it. It had some awesome crotch figure, but had a large crack straight down the middle that would have been tricky to fix with epoxy.Being a guy who likes contrast, I figured I'd split it, joint/plane it to make flattening a breeze, then put the maple stripe for an accent.The base, it's a variation on my live edge dining table bases, simply cut down to size. Some folks don't like the look of natural poplar, but I do. It seems to compliment the figure in the walnut as well.As for a finish? Some shellac to seal it and some marine spar varnish as this piece is on our screened-in porch.Check us out at @docsdesignsfurniture on Instagram for our maker-centric feed.
