Here is a small stool my wife designed and painted for a customer’s young one. I made it out of solid white pine. Very sturdy stool. They were happy with it.
Here is how I made my hearts using a scroll and hole saw. I found if I needed them to be all the exact size this worked out great.
Here is a Pine End Table, with shelf that my wife designed, and I made for a customer. I turned the legs giving it a unique flair, and my wife covered it with a white stain. Once finished, I sprayed it with a couple coats of semi-gloss lacquer. Nice piece.
Here is a sold pine stool my wife designed for a lady, so she could get into her top kitchen cupboards. She was just a touch short. LOL. I added some leather to the centre of each step for slippage. Once made I stained it with an Early American and topped it off with three coats of Semi-gloss Urethane. Happy customer.
Here is a coffee table I made. The top is made of 1 inch (2.54 cm) thick white pine with a checker board that my wife painted on its top. We then fastened it to an old crate that the customer had from their business. Turned out nice and customer liked it.
Here is a Toy Chest order my wife designed and painted. I made it out of white pine. Turned out great and customer loved it.
Here is a wine rack my lovely wife designed and I made. It has a lift lid for storage with a slide for your wine glasses under the storage department. Holds 20 bottles of wine. Once made my wife painted the letters and grapes on the top. It was made of white pine. Another happy customer.
Here is a picture of a Butcher-Block I made awhile back. The cutting block is made from a 10 inch (25.4 cm) sold piece of walnut with a knife holder on one side. I then surrounded it with Red Oak. The legs are made from white pine. Turned out great and the customer that ordered it was very happy. Hard to get thick pieces of walnut anymore.
Here is a picture of some items we made over the years at one of our stores in Niagara. Gives you an idea of what we were making back then.
Here is another picture of one of my old woodworking shops. I have had a few over the years.
Here is a picture of my old shop I had year ago. Large door that I could set a whole lift of pine lumber in when needed. Miss them days and miss my old shop too. I have others will post them as I find them.
Here is a pine chest I made awhile back. It is lined with cedar. The wood is called Zebra wood comes from Germany. I got the wood from my Brother in law Walt, many years ago. He worked at a factory that brought in items in crates. When ever he got some crates with some good-looking wood he would give me a call and ask if I wanted it. For a few years I got wood from all over the world. I sure miss them days as it is hard to find unique kinds of wood anymore. Especially from other countries.
Cloudy wet morning here in Port Loring, Ontario Canada. It kind of looks like it will remain cloudy for most the day. We could see a wee bit of sunshine tomorrow, but then back to rain for Monday and Tuesday. Turning out to be a wet Fall for sure. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 13.5 C | 56.3 F. It will warm up a touch later on. On another note the leaves are sure changing fast and in some areas they have dropped over half. In other areas they are in their peak. Too bad we have had so much gloomy weather. What we need is lots of sunshine for them to show off all their colours. Today I am going to take it a bit easy, maybe write up a story or two. A feller has to have one day off now and then. LOL With that I am off for my morning tea with my lovely wife and will let the day unfold around me.

If you are not afraid of getting a bit wet, fishing will be pretty good today. I give it a 4-Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. Good Luck.
