Not too much. Lift blocks for my truck. Most of the shite I build is unimpressive and just a cheaper way to make something I could otherwise buy a better version of.

A very heavy duty root rake for our tractor. Built it almost 20yrs ago and it's has held up and works great.

BBQ pits

A 20ft trailer made from 6" C channel. Buddies dad used it to haul pallets of grass out of the field.

Several other things out of metal.

I am still working on finishing my shop, damn this has been a long process.

re: Neatest thing you have built?
Built my parents a cypress "picnic" table for the camp at Toledo.

Milled all the lumber and most joints are mortise and tenon. It is 4 pieces connected with large stainless bolts.





Now my sister wants me to build her one.

re: Neatest thing you have built?
That table is amazing

Let see what I've built...

- Completely gutted a house and rebuilt from the frame. Done everything myself besides build cabinets, float sheetrock, and hand crown moulding. Worst year and a half of my life....

- Oh, I've built fiberglass boats... That was cool..


Before camera phones...


We also took the hull of that boat and built a center console out of it, I will try and find some pics..

I've modified all types of shite.... I could go on for days... cars, boats, motorcyles, atvs, utvs, 48V electric dirt bike, 36 volt power wheels, etc, etc, etc


AND, the most important modification ever.... I trimmed one of the locking corner tabs off of the lid of my YETI so when I have it cable locked in the back of the truck I can still open the lid to grab a beer and I coated said modification with Plasti-Dip...

Is that fire engine the one that was done for Brennan (I think that's Albert's boy's name) Daigle?

I used to work with Albert.

re: Neatest thing you have built?
Most functional: built in ice chest in my boat.
Best looking: helped my great uncle (RIP) build a shite ton of furniture and his kitchen cabinets, all red cedar.
Biggest: Outdoor kitchen still a WIP, roof should go up in Feb.
I used to do a lot of scroll work, moved and didnt have room for the saw anymore so I havent done anything in a while, made some neat stuff.

Don't have any pics, but yall would get a big kick out of seeing some of the mountain tree stands I've put up during the years. I'll add that it ain't much fun carryin that lumber up into the mountain woods.

One of my coworkers and I designed and fabricated this project at my old job. The top is 12-13 feet off the ground for scale.

re: Neatest thing you have built?
i suck at building things. But this is my favorite. The tailgate is off of my late grandpas old chevy pickup. Truck was ran down and rusted out but i wanted something to have that i could always remember him by and honor him. So me and my dad buily this. I know the pic sucks, but it looks good. Left the tailgate as is, and put clear coat on it.

also, the reason for the tags is, the God one was on the front of the truck, The anyique tag was still ok the back, and the other was the original tag when he got the truck, it was still under the seat.

eta... found a better pic
