Any of you guys into simple woodworking? I just picked this hobby up a couple of years ago and since have made several Hand Made & Hand Painted (By My Wife) Whirligigs. It's been the perfect combination of my two favorite things, mechanics & woodworking. There's just something about a Whirligig doing it's thing that makes everyone smile.
Here's a Couple of Video of my Favorite simple ones.

I still do some, but not as much as I used to. Seems like these little tractors& attachments take up a lot of my time! :worshippy1: :blush2: ~~ grnspot110

I'm into woodworking. I built my own kitchen cabinets and make saltwater fishing plugs on a wood lathe. It's a great way to spend the cold winter months.

I dabble in it from time to time. My last was my sons cradle, I did not use any fasteners only mortise and tenon with pegs. Unfortunatley I am not as patient as Roy Underhill, I had to use power tools. One of my favorite things to build and most frustrating is primative bows. I have only a few that survived it to become real shooters but those few are very special to me.

I do some woodworking off and on. You did a nice job on the whirligig. Thanks for sharing the video.
One of my favorite projects was a wooden engine that I made last year. It runs on compressed air... can't take credit for the design, I made it from plans in a book.

I am trying to start doing more wood working. I have a shoe storage dresser in the shop right now that i need to finish. It will live in the mud room and hide the pile of shoes we have there.

I have several benches and cabinets in the planning stages.

That's Looks Realy Great.... Is that you're own Design & Plan? Like to see it when it's finished.

You're much more advance with woodworking than me, that's for sure.

Thank you very much. I am wanting to build furniture for our house since i can't stand stuff made from particle board, and to go out and buy solid wood furniture cost a arm and a leg.

the plans came from knock off wood There are tons of good plans on there.
