Lead paint is extra tasty.

OK, you've had time to resharpen your jack knife, so just grab an Oak stump and have at it.

Different, kinda cool, but I wouldn't want it in my house. Not entirely sure why, it just jars my senses. Be a bitch to dust too.

Different schools of thought on patterns in a strip built boat. I like taking the donor wooden beam and cutting it into book matched strips that will wrap the boat in what appears to be a continuous matching grain pattern. If you select wood that's fairly uniform in color, you can get what I consider to be gorgeous grain patterns.

I prefer the more uniform color to the contrasting strips of different color.

It's a little garish for my tastes, but I highly appreciate the skill and dedication needed to pull that off. Probably won't get stolen either.

How about this beauty...

Beautiful boats. My FiL has a lovely wooden canoe but its to pretty to use so he bashes around in fiberglass.

Cute picnic table for swingers. However a couple things bothered me about this picture.
First was the wide open S hooks holding the chains, but I guess since they aren't really swinging it doesn't matter all that much.
Secondly, I'm pretty sure the backboard for the basket ball hoop is a glass window. That's a genuine WTF were they thinking?

Here's something you can do with that clapped out CJ rusting away out back.

OK, then that old clapped out CJ which was hit by a rocket propelled grenade, causing it to swerve over an IED which blew it 40 ft in the air, then came down in the path of a 100 ton tank with no brakes, rusting out back. Better?

Christ, what a bunch of sentimental softies, you're better off staying home playing pool.
