« Part 1: My kind of woodworking..... Part 2 of Creative Woodworking series Part 3: Beds »

please feel free to add any pictures to this blog of the styles YOU like….or any projects YOU would love to build, etc. I’m just sharing some things I find interesting, and it would be awesome to see what everyone else likes, or would like to build someday…..(these photos were taken off of www.design-milk.com – just trying to give the credit, and if you’d like to find out WHO built these)

One of the things i LOVE the most about woodworking, is the ability to corporate art with function. I think both of these are good examples! enjoy

hey thanks for the comment Shipwright. Your “Oops” project is just what this blog is about! You should post it here again. I loved that, it was amazing. I also loved your boat that you posted – great craftsmanship – i can only hope some day!

The next in that line is a couple of weeks off, seems like a long way right now though. I’m not sure how to re-post that here but anyone who hasn’t seen it can just go to my projects. Thanks for the kind words. Here’s a teaser of the next cabinet.

This is the kind of stuff that really excites me at LJ. Be nice if there was a forum heading for just the “creative” use of wood. Right now I don’t even think there is a way to search for this subject.

Steve.

I’m not sure how creative any of my project are, but I love to challenge myself. If I could only find time to build half of the crazy things that go thru my mind, but life seems to get in the way! LOL I really like the chair and table. That’s really cool.

I agree with Huff. I have a LOT more going through my head then I can ever ATTEMPT to get built. ( I say attempt because some of my tries have failed) I don’t post everything. hehe

Anything I can turn is preffered, but now I am attempting more segmented pieces.

cool Scrappy – i have only LIGHTLY touched on the art of Turning. It is really fun – unfortunately I dont attachments to do much more than making spindles – haha – kinda gets old

I would love to do some hollow vases or bowls/plates.

Huff and scrappy – I know what you mean. My retirement has finally allowed me the time to chase creativity for it’s own sake and build all those foolish ideas that pop up. I’m having the time of my life. However the more you allow your mind to freewheel, the more ideas pop up so none of us is ever going to get around to many of them.

A blog will accompany the project post. I’ve still got a few bugs to work out.
Thanks.

Aren’t the children annoying sometimes?
