My wife likes lighthouse’s and nautical themes and I was in the Navy so we decorated our family room with this theme. These are some of the items I made.

Dave, these are really interesting projects. It takes a combination of imagination, a touch of artistry and plenty of woodworking talent to complete projects like these.

Nice job.

Throw a board across the two middle shelves of the bookcase and you can go fishing. Great work.

I’m impressed! Any of these would be welcome in my living room. They would go quite well with my brass ship’s wheel coffee table. More ideas for projects. Why didn’t I think of anchor legs for the table I built? Back to the drawing board….

Being a Navy guy myself for over 20 years… had to comment on the “theme” of these projects…
GREAT CHOICE and BZ on the results…

I really like the anchor legs for the table, nice touch with the book case too.
