    Button Button, who's got the buttons.:D As you can see from some of my other projects I like buttons. I think I cornered the market on them. I also make plugs whenever thhe need arises. I like those other joints and will try them one day.

    Wow. Those are some beautiful projects.

    Is the bookcase made from reclaimed lumber? It almost looks as if there are old rusty nail traces. I really like that look in some furniture. Those clocks are fantastic as well. You should be very proud.

    Great work. Beautiful job. Top marks. Looks like she will really enjoy it.
    The other pieces are works of art.

    I am proud of my stuff although I am certainly
    not a woodworker, just a hobbiest. When I look for wood I look for the best grain and the best knot patterns.. The bookcase wood my wife picked, according to her, looked like leapard spots so I used it as the border. Pine comes in many grains and is cheap and I like it so pine is my go to wood. I do ma bunch of stuff in walnut as well. I was given a 4" thick by 24" wide slab of walnut by a friend so I slice it and plane it and make a bunch of stuff from it. More pics to come:rolleyes:

    A few more pics. Take a gander at my god-awful PC bench!:eek: Hard to believe I can find anything.
    Yup.. I'm a proud Grampa.:eek: Little Kailee is a real doll. She is so smart and so congenial. She's only 14 mo. old and walk, can say gampa and gammaw and many other things. She stood on her new perch today and saw the birds and says bababa meaning birds. That also means Ball, which she can see in the pool. I used to think that What good are babies! You can't eat them! She kinda changed my mind.;):D
