Neatest thing you have built?
Mine would be a treehouse (suspended only using one tree) and a console table for the girl.

I'll try to get some pics of the treehouse tomorrow. Looking for some inspiration to build something this weekend.

Contemplated giving a pirogue a shot

Pics?

Did you go to his place for the build, or did you do it remote?

There's some cool shite that you can build on this website. She gives some pretty detailed plans and if I had the tools, i would have build 1/2 of it by now.

Not sure. Built a bunch of things.

Swing bed for the back patio
Coffee table

Table for my parents
Spininng rods
Fly rods
Duck calls (still owe BP)

Etc

Neatest was probably the coffee table. Only used hand tools. Nothing electric

Any pics of the duck calls or coffee table?

Once I nut up and get a primo I'm planning on building a custom table for it (maybe even try to put together an outdoor kitchen made out of stone)

I built this outdoor "hall tree" from old cypress wood from our family's first camp at grand isle. Shutters from the camp are the sides. The camp was built in the late 1800s and finally torn down after hurricane Betsy. The back of the piece is a pine barn door from my wife's family property also from the turn of the 20th century.

It was 2 long days at FF's house that got us about 90% done, got it home and a few hours to finish up the mechanical aspect of it, as for the finishing , I really took my time and spent many evenings after work and weekends sanding and building up coats of spar varnish

That's really cool.

The Fish pirogue builds are awesome, too. My friend built one in shop class at lafayette High that we used to take everywhere.

Built a curio cabinet out of reclaimed wood from my great grandfathers house. Everything on it from his property except nails and hinges!

I've posted these before but every so often I build a batch of these for some side cash. Did a few in the tin but hate doing them. The purple/gold one was my favorite but ended up selling it.

The trap door handles are a nice touch.

Let's see...
Framed houses
Utility trailers
Deer stands
Fences
Refinished furniture
Working on remodeling my house

...but I haven't really built anything cool. I need to get on that.

re: Neatest thing you have built?
Not really outdoor related but I started buildings furniture for the house a few months ago. Now I have about 3 more items the wife wants. These are my first projects.

Coffee table



Dining table



Never thought I'd enjoy it, but its a fun hobby.

Literally was reading this site before I opened this thread. Some pretty neat stuff.

Privacy fence. Easy, 8 ft slabs from lowes, saves you thousands.
