I started working with wood at an early age, scrounging wood from around the neighborhood for some project.   As a teenager I made a boat which my brother and I took down to Hogtown creek to explore.  I started building furniture after moving out on my own building a desk, coffee table and a pair of three-foot-high speakers.  I as I got got older my projects became more sophisticated as seen below.

Woodshed  2019


After landscaping my backyard which included a firepit, I needed a woodshed to store wood in so I drew up the rough plans below on the left which I then built the wood shed in the photo.  The following year, my next door neighbor put in a patio very silimar to mine, also with a firepit, and then he asked me if I could make a wood shed for him.  I told him, no I would not build it for him, but would help him build one.  He agreed and I made up the more exact plans on the right below and then I helped him build his shed.
