Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.
With the inspiration from Daris and his post of his making of the hummingbird feeder from the book: “Easy to Build bird houses a natural approach”. I have built one with my modifications. Please check it out and I love comments! Thanks Daris for the inspiration. Chris
needed a new Computer Desk. Had some old Barn Wood in the shop. Weather has started to warm up, so I moved a bunch of tools back out to that un-heated Pole Barn I call a shop. Loaded up the hand tool box, most of the pipe clamps, a beltsander, a couple handsaws, and some Mountain dews. Seems I was forgeting something in that list. Glue, maybe?

At the beginning of August, with the discovery of mold in my kitchen, I began building new countertops. The wood for this work all came from my inlaws barnwood. After getting the countertops glued up, I was interupted by life (teaching, UPS, kids, divorce, and more). Where I left off, I had just gotten the sections back from a local cabinetshop where it was run through a drum sander….. Well, FOUR MONTHS LATER, what a thrill to get back into the shop three days ago. I am tryi...
