The ladies have their "Show us What You Made" thread, so this is a little more open to both ladies and gentlemen. Many of us live in old houses, and that requires that you become pretty inventive and learn new skills, unless you are in a position to hire tradesmen to do everything. Let's see some of the projects you've been working on, either building or creating! Here are a few of mine. Please allow plenty of slack for lousy photography and the occasional stray extension cord. I added a paneled wall in the dining room, with a shelf above to hold My Mrs' Williamsburg building collection. There were open spaces at each side of the chimney, so I added bookcases. This is a cabinet for the television. Inside are stashed the Tivo, VCR and PS2, along with all the VHS Disney movies no one watches anymore. It's loosely based on an Arts & Crafts wardrobe I saw. I made this primitive candle box after seeing something similar at a craft show. It's now the dumping place for candle stubs and other wax items that will be melted to make others. The two really fussy things I've made are reproductions of a colonial era mirror found at Old Sturbridge Village, and a pipe box (just finished) that was found in Virginia. I'm not happy with the proportions of the box, but it'll do. I made this hat shelf. And reupholstered this chair. I don't have much of a workshop, just a wobbly bench and a bunch of hand tools. The next big project is to make a base cabinet for an early 1800's hutch top we've had for ages. Somehow, the top got separated from its base long ago, and the top was converted to a floor-standing shelf unit. The base will have to have drawers and cupboard doors - I don't know if I can put off learning to make dovetail joints much longer. The whole project is pretty intimidating. Then the living room gets a paneled wall like the one in the dining room, the back porch gets removed and rebuilt as a small enclosed room, the exposed roof rafter tails need attention, and there's plenty of trim painting to be done.
