Sliding barn doors from reclaimed prison fence | How-to

Here they are--the long awaited sliding barn doors, yep these are the ones I have been talking about for months on "The Crafted Podcast".

This was a really fun commissioned project! I was commissioned to build two custom sliding barn style doors for a house up in Daytona Beach Florida. The client supplied me with the weathered cypress which was reclaimed from an old prison fence!

So, my wife has been asking for some sort of jewelry holder for quite some time, I finally got around to making one for her. The dowels hold her bracelets and necklaces, and the screen is for her earings.

Industrial chain lamp from start to finish

I had a lot of fun with this one, back when I was living in Portland, Oregon, I sold quite a few of these. In this video I'll take you through the whole process of how I build chain lamps.


I'd love to hear your ideas, input, suggestions, and/or questions.  I'm considering a bi-weekly video update on new acquisitions, and a (non-sponsored) featured tool of the week.

Anachronistic light bulb oil lamp

I saw these little light bulb containers at the local hobby shop and thought about how it would be interesting and unconventional it might be  to use them as an oil lamp..

All in all this was a very simple project, other than drilling through the porcelain for the wick.

Wooden State Cutout (Florida) | DIY

Still trying to work my way through my pile of scrap wood.

 If I had to do it again I would recommend the thinnest plywood you can get for aesthetic reasons--or better yet(if your boards are thick enough), glue the boards together prior to cutting out your shape.

Simple DIY Pallet Coasters

I've seen a few of these around the internet, I figured it would make a nice short little video on the process.
Anyone should be able to make these for under $15. Although I use a scroll saw and table saw in the video, you can buy all the materials (including the square dowels I cut) at your local hobby store. Also, you should be able to cut the popsicle sticks with scissors.
