    Make a chessboard using maple and walnut strips glued alternatively-look for Youtube videos on how to line them up perfectly (and chess pieces if you have a lathe machine). My kid and I play with the one I made for him. Another project is a butcher block for the kitchen.

      Anyone make something out of diamond willow? I've made dozens of canes and walking sticks, end tables and bed headboards. If you want to try it I've got several acres of diamond willow from 1" to 6" dia. You cut what you want.

        Built this bench out of reclaimed cedar planks and 4x4 posts several years ago, also made a cedar grill side prep table recently. All the wood was torn off old decks my buddy replaced other than the aromatic cedar table top. We have made a few nice picnic tables too. Old wood sands up and finishes nice and I love using it when I can. Woodworking is a relaxing hobby for me just like fishing.

            I like to get so it of scrap pieces of different colors and types of hard wood and cut them into strips and than glue them together, square everything up, sand them down and give them away as cutting boards. You can also cut pieces of logs, sand and oil them and use/ give them away as hot pads. They look really neat if you can keep the bark on them as well.

              If you are thinking large, I have done a lot of these log signs.

                A blown down cedar fence is always worth salvaging. One dog ear panel = one bluebird/wren box. One 2x4 makes almost a dozen kids wooden swords. You can also start making your own musky lures. That's what all my vintage (Pre Y2K) Hoober Bloobs, Hawgwobblers and Jumbo Jackpots were made from
