What else do you do for fun/hobbies

I 'am a frustrated wood worker. I like working with old wood and also like to repurpose things.

Here is a table I made from a wine turning rack. I laid out the tapered legs and cut them on the band saw. A friend welded the hammered steel band around the edge.

Nice work! I work in the furniture business and all I hear customers say all the time is, they dont make furniture like they use to. That old growth wood is the best. The stuff they use now is heavy but weak like balsa.

I could never make a living from this. One reason is that I don't like to sell the stuff I make, but I did sell the table and used the money as part of a down payment on a new to me school bus I needed. Most of the things I make I give to friends.

Woodworking, sci-fi/fantasy. I love your table full size jeeper, repurposed wood makes the best, must unusual pieces. Too cool!

I made an antique looking wood duck box about a year ago. My intention was to get a wood duck mounted standing on top of it but apparently I damaged the one I shot too bad to be mounted. I guess I just have to do more hunting now... Darn! Here are a couple pictures of it before I cut the hole in it. I built it out of some old fence posts (cerca 1940's) that had previously been used across a creek.
