Raised Strawberry planting bed

     I never go to Home Depot with out checking they're cull been , for those of that don't know thats where they put all the cutoffs and damaged wood. The prices go for anywhere between $.51 to $4.00 depending on the color of paint they put on it. I managed to get there just as they put some new wood in the bin it was all 2x6 both pressure treated and plain lumber most of it was atleast 4 ft. long .I bought it all for .51 cents each cost me all of $15.oo . the following is what I made from that lumber.

    Its a raised strawberry planter since my wife and I both have problems bending over for long periods of time We thought it would be nice to be able to stand up and pick strawberrys .  It measures 8ft. long and 2ft wide and is approx 39" tall with the planter box about 9" deep . I think it will work out really good for us eventho weve missed the strawberry season this year. I can hardly wait for next spring I love fresh strawberrys...........Thanks for looking Rick

Diaper Changing Table

 Our church just recently remodled they're restrooms they were in dire need of it. After all the work was done in the ladys room some one said that we had no Changing station in either restroom ,by then all the funds had been used up.So I built one out of lumber instead of one of the fancy plastic one you see in Mc Donalds and such places. The table serves two purposes it gives a place to change dispers and it also cover some pipe the were sticking out of the wall that was for a sink that was removed.

  It has since been painted and installed and looks like it has always been there .I built the table from scrap wood I scraped up and it cost me only $5.00 for the hardware. Thanks for looking

Adirondack Love Seat

As you can see I finally got the love seat done . I think its a real good match for the chair I also built a little table to go along with the set . I'm working on a matching foot stool one that could be used on any of the chairs or the love seat. I have sold a  few of the chairs but I am a little disappointed that I'm not selling more. but the sun has finally come out maybe now they will sell. Thanks for looking
