Pirate Chest with Rounded Top
At some point I made a "treasure box" for my older son that basically amounted to me practicing some box joints and giving him the results. It turned out to be a bigger hit than I thought it would be and my other son has been begging for a treasure box. I really didn't want to make another boring square box, so I set out to make a treasure chest with a rounded top.

Canoe from Scratch Without a Workshop
There is a neat project going on a few houses down in my neighborhood. You can't miss it - there is a canoe being built out on the front porch. Makes sense you say - a canoe might be hard to get out of the workshop. However, in this case the woodworker does not have a workshop. My friend Jaymin is building the canoe with a $60 bench top table saw from Craigslist, a sander, a drill and his own creativity and enthusiasm.

Kids and Scrap Piles
They had a hammer / bottle opener and the little picture hanging kit from the junk drawer (surely everybody has one of those)...
