That's how I'd do it. (Assuming the skill saw blade would reach that deep.) It's not incredibly difficult. Just not as easy as slapping the thing together using 2x10s for a table top.

Combination guitar stand and music stand. I'll refrain from further comment.

It's a manufactured door, what can go wrong?

The homeowners could thoughtlessly have put the hinges on the wrong side of the house.

I suppose they could be midgets and wanted the stained-glass windows where they could peek out.

Oh, I've got it, they were shipped an Australian door by mistake.

That's pretty cool.

And it looks fairly straightforward to replicate.

Here's another straight forward easy to build item, but I doubt it would hold as many clothes as a stationary bike.

I don't think that word means what they think it means...

This could be tricky, but a simple 90 degree arc jig, lacking a lathe, and a router could do it.

Bocce is for pussies, croquet might cost you your head, ten-pin is the way to go. You don't even need kids, the pins are reset with strings.

This was a spur of the moment project. I'd bought a big set of Forstner bits for making big holes in wood that are the size you want and not all torn to shit. So I was experimenting with blocks of different types of wood at different angles to the grain. So much easier and cleaner than a hole saw, pretty quick I had a pile of these blocks. So I spiffed them up a little while I thought about it.
I had been in this junk shop one time and bought a hanging lamp, a small ghetto crystal chandelier, just because it was the ugliest lamp I'd ever seen, and thought it would make a great gag gift for some poor bastard. It had a bunch of these big cut glass shapes with a coating that made them sparkle and throw colored beams like third rate real crystals. I hung one in each of the blocks to create suncatchers. Not terribly pretty but worked pretty well in the window.

The one with the stripes is glued up 1" hardwood marine plywood we'd found in a barn. The sheets were 4' square, and every other ply was light or dark... I don't know why?

I wonder if there is a layer of tropical hardwood?
