Anyone else build big stuff? We remodeled our house and added on an office and master bdrm so I got to build some big stuff.

Build this out of construction grade 2x8 and 2x12, pocket screwed and doweled, doesn't budge even if you jump up and down on it.

Needed a dresser that fit in this space and matched the janky 2x12 bed, just build one, right?
Ok.

Fireplace needs a mantle. Built out of 1/2" baltic birch made to look like heavy beams.

Needed a new closet system. Those guys are spendy. Chinese 4x8 birch plywood to the rescue

Still, the whole time I was wishing I was making pens :p

Or maybe a cutting board.

Wow! Some beautiful craftsmanship on display. I especially like the work tables and the cutting board.

Very nice. đź‘Ť

Thanks for all the love. I'm actually an IT nerd, I just make all this woodworking stuff up as I go. I do love making cutting boards, the precision requires focus and quiets the mind.

Some I made for a buddy. It was a bread and cheese board (to his specs so the shape is all him) and a countertop edge maple board.

One I made for my mom, made to look like a weave pattern

Here was my first go at doing slate, also the outside part of that fireplace pictured above

Honestly, working with my hands and mind is so much more rewarding that just using my brain to make digital nonsense.

At least I have my retirement mapped out, right?
