So I got tired of building bird houses and started exploring what to do with all of the old fence wood I had so I built shop stools, Ice Chests, trash cans with lids oh…and birdhouses.

I’m very interested in the shop stools and the ice chest. Any drawings you can send out? Particularly the ice chest!

I don’t make great plans but I do draw stuff out before I build it so I will post it here. I am a cartoonist also and draw what I want to build in cartoon style but I hope my plans help.

I also made some coolers out of better wood but I like the rustic stuff.

No ugliness here! Just great projects from reclaimed wood. Love the stools! Keep up the good work.
By the way your drawings are awsome.

Those are actually very down home and cool. There seems to be history just oozing out of them…..
