My Projects

A photo record of assembling a 6x6 elevated playhouse and swing, using a kit from Sunbury Cedar.

Need some good tools for your project? I've developed a web page that queries Amazon's database for the tools that are selling quickly, right now, in various categories.

This can be a convenient way to find unusually good deals in tools, in various categories - including cordless tools, hand tools, measuring tools, power tools, tool sets, as well as by specific tool types such as drills, routers, sanders, saws, and other items.

I've picked up some good deals on clamps and other necessities this way. You can see the current list of quick-selling tools, here.

Workshop graphic Base in, framing up. The old playhouse looks on from behind. It knows its days are numbered.

The Sunbury materials were delivered on a pallet by a crane truck - with all wood, screws, nails, shingles, tarpaper etc. Everything was included except for the wood stain (optional), and the copper sulphate which I used to treat the lower part of the posts.

It was a surprisingly large load, and I'm glad I had it delivered rather than try to get it home myself.

Workshop graphic Swing beam up. It rained for most of this project, so the few pictures I have are when the clouds cleared.

Workshop graphic Siding on. The project took a week. That was twice as long as what the kit estimated - about par for the course for my typical projects.

Workshop graphic Anticipation. So far the construction passes SWMBO's inspection.

Workshop graphic Roofing on . This would be great training for building a real house.

Workshop graphic Front porch rail assembled. "I'm not slow, I'm methodical." Plus I still have all ten fingers.

Workshop graphic Stain applied; slide attached.
