Now thats a gate

Riaan Kritzinger sent over pictures of his gate that he made out of English Oak. Its really stunning. I like gates that have the top rail, like a door. It looks nice and really strengthens the gate.

Wanted to share this project from 12-year-old woodworker Avery L. who made a display case using his dads jig saw. Nice work Avery!

Last week I posted a video from Festool showing how to make a really neat peg-cutting jig. Its a great, inexpensive router technique from a manufacturer of really expensive tools! Scott Claridge jumped right on that and used it to make a whole bunch of tenons for a balustrade fence.

I love this cutting board design from Mark Dennen. For his first attempt, he built this using Oak and Walnut. If you still havent made a cutting board, give it a try. They are fun and make great gifts.

And just when you were really tired of benches, Bill Wilson, (Ive posted lots of his stuff here) jumped on that bandwagon. He is now a member of the club. We need a secret handshake.

Having a bit of fun with my Facebook cover image this week, changing it every day. Well really just adding to it. Kind of an interactive art piece built by viewers! Haha. Check it out. Im curious what it will look like on Saturday.
