Fun Woodworking Projects

I enjoy woodworking for fun stuff around the house, gifts, or art projects. But it's been awhile since I've made some sawdust...other than work-related cabinetry. And I'm getting the urge to make some stuff. Anyone working on fun or art projects? Christmas gifts?

I built a house over the past three years. I guess it was fun.

I'm on the board of our local woodturning club, you can do a lot of fun stuff with a lathe

There are a couple guys in the club who make a living with it including this guy who used to do drywall and tile for a living.


If the tile work in his house is any indication he was very good at it.

Cool Nate. Kurt and I are wood turners too, though I haven't had any lathe time lately.

Whittling on Cottonwood bark is something I enjoy. Like Dave, haven't had much time here lately.

Say cheese. As a rookie, it's hard to get them to come out the way I want. Some have a gorilla face. It's fun and a challenge at times.

Put a bandanna on the first one's head and it'll look just like Musky Mike.

I like your cottonwood carvings, Davy.

I did this indian carving years ago. Spent days on it. Used butternut wood. Never put any sort of finish on it.
