    New Deck : Sawdust&Beer
    Overall it was pretty simple. Getting the correct angles took a bit of double/triple checking. I think the most time consuming was the walk back and forth from the front yard to the back yard. I should have set up a work table right next to the deck lol

    • This is so impressive! What was your biggest struggle with this build?

    Wooden Comb Experiment : Sawdust&Beer
    I've been wanting to make a box joint jig and/or spline joint jig for table saw since I got it, just havent gotten around to it yet lol.. Im thinking these would make some cool little gifts for my grooms men.. Thanks for the idea Tjbaum.

    Wooden Comb Experiment
    These are absolutely top quality! These would be perfect to use up some of my scrap hardwoods. I assume you used a box joint jig for table saw? But did you just sand in the points by hand?

    Custom Cutting boards for Wife and Rrother
    Looks great man! Is that yellow heart I see in there? Give an end grain cutting board a go, they are super durable! I use CBdesigner (just google it) and it helps with the planing and layouts for end grain design. Its crazy the designs some people can do with end grain boards.

    End Grain Cutting board : Sawdust&Beer
    Just food grade mineral oil. You don't want any chemicals near food and no oils that will go rancid (such as vegetable oils). End-Grain cutting boards take quite a bit longer to make and they add a lot more waste in sawdust from the extra cuts, but they are totally worth it. If this board gets oiled regularly it should last a life time and never show any sign of wear.

    • Such a neat design! Both a useful and beautiful gift!
      By RYOBI NATION, on December 15, 2017

    • She will love it. Well done. I really like the fact you made your own branding iron. That is very cool.
      By mrpip, on December 16, 2017
      • Thank you mrpip. It was actually a lot easier than I expected. Finding the solid brass was the hard part but one of my suppliers for work came through for me. If you try it I would recommend cutting the stencil out with a xacto knife and using finger nail polish to put the logo onto the brass.
        By Sawdust&Beer, on December 18, 2017

    • Awesome! What did you use for finish?

    • Wow - this is beautiful! What a great way to make such a big moment so special and more personal and heartfelt. She is a very lucky lady!
      By hlweber, on October 30, 2017

    • So thoughtful! We like the wood you chose - any particular reasoning for these two types of wood? Congratulations!
      By RYOBI Nation, on November 1, 2017
      • Mostly just because of the contrast, but I guess the name Purple Heart when proposing adds something special. The Purple Heart is a super hard wood too, so it should last for a long long time :)
        By Sawdust&Beer, on November 1, 2017

    • What an amazing box. It looks like you worked very hard on this.... My question is how did she not find out must have taken you a very long time. She is a very lucky lady that is for sure, do you make anything that you sale? I would be very interested to see what you all you can make. That for sure is a talent.

    • Wow! Looks/sounds like a lot of hard work! Your yard looks totally different - amazing job! Can I hire you for my yard? :)
      By hlweber, on July 13, 2017

    • The new fence totally transforms the yard! Great work!
      By RYOBI Nation, on July 14, 2017
      • Thank you Ryobi! The pictures really don't even do it justice. The highlight of the entire project was how we inspired the rest of the neighborhood to clean up their yards and finish some of their projects.

    • This is the cutest simplest dog bed that I have seen, but it fits the dog so easily, so easy for him to get in and out of.
      By Taxisand, on July 7, 2017
      • All the dog beds I had looked at or designs I had seen were (in my opinion) ugly and more complicated than they needed to be. This one works perfect for us and solved a space problem we had in the room. My bulldog absolutely loves laying on it and watching all the elementary kids go by every afternoon.
        By Sawdust&Beer, on July 7, 2017

    • This is such a great idea! My dog is constantly on our furniture (couches and beds). I think he likes to be up off the floor. After all it is his house - we are just lucky enough to live with him :) He loves to lay in front of the front door so he can see out into the neighborhood at what is going on. I think this would be a great idea to put in front of a window like you did so he can still see out but be off the floor. And hey - maybe it will keep him off the furniture too! Looks great and seems like an easy project even for a girl like me. I look forward to trying it!
      By hlweber, on July 7, 2017
      • You're pup will love it! Super simple and it can be done with any scrap wood (pallets or fencing) so its cheap too.
