    This topic looked lonely so I decided to keep it company.

    WOW oh WOW. You do beautiful work. I greatly admire this talent and skill because I'm into woodmaking too. Not on your scale but small things. I made a wall mounted tea caddy once out of scraps and a few fireplace mantles in our old house. My grandfather used to make some primative type furniture. Of course, it was primative times and he didn't have the best tools.
    My current project is putting chair-rail around my kitchen and then I'll finishing running new baseboards in my bedroom and guest bedroom. Not a lot of women do this type of work but I've got the DNA from both sides. My dad used to build houses for various family members....his many sisters mostly.
    I enjoy it and it looks like you do too. Great work. My husband buys me power tools when it's gift time.

    You must be a "Finish Carpenter"...
    Very nice Work there...
    Carpenter Myself but just a Framer. Not that I'm in the Industry anymore but when I was younger. I can make some nice things and have but I'm not as polished as the work I see above.
    Again, GJ.

    Its always great to hear of women who love power tools. I get lost in home depot even when I go for a specific item, I just wander and look at everything, especially the tools.
    Primative woodworking is amazing to me. I know what is involved with all the modern tooling we have today and to think of what people were doing with simple hand tools just boggles my mind. They were the true artisans.

    That is some amazing work. My grandfather was a carpenter and he used to let me swing the hammer all the time. Because of him, I have been given the skill set to allow me to make and repair things on my own but nothing like what you, Pheryllt, have done. Extremely beautiful.

    Not a finish carpenter so to say, I specialize in custom cabinetry. Finish carpenters do staircases and rails and some trim work that I shake my head at in amazement. I might be able to do some of what a professional finish carpenter can do but they do it better and faster than I. I focused of one part of it.
    Framing is an art unto itself. Just like anything else, it can be done well or most atrociously. I was installing a prefab kitchen in a house for someone, it was new construction, $600k house, and the wall I was installing on was off 3 1/2 inches from floor to ceiling. (as a framer, I'm sure you know exactly what went wrong) I live to install in properly framed and plastered homes. Its a nightmare when its done wrong getting my cabinets to look right.

    Many thanks for the compliment. Again its good to see people who have had knowledge passed on to them from a mentor/relative that give them more independance and the confidence to fix/build things they need and can use. We as a society are moving away from builders to consumers so it warms my heart to hear from others who "get their hands dirty now and again".

    You are most welcome. I agree, it is nice to people getting their hands dirty in a good way. I feel like we are actually moving away from consumers back to builders in many respects. I see so many people in my life and the internet that are becoming gardeners and DIYers. Makes me happy to see. I've felt since I was a little girl that we would see a shift back to the simple life, the basics and welcome it with open heart. I do see the consumers probably still outnumber the builders by far.

    Ahhhh back to the basics. Such a great concept (and a great series of books might I add). What I wouldn't give for some acerage, a big ol barn, crops and critters right now. Add in a smattering of new tech (bio disel production to run truck,farm equip, generator; wind and solar projects; research into magnetic motor projects and hydrogen production) and I would be a super happy camper.

    I'll have to find the books, thanks. I want that life for sure. Time to think and breathe and, well, live.

    I have been trying to attach 3 photos for the last 30 minutes, but have been unsuccessful. I even made them smaller, but no go....not even one at a time.....and they're all under 60k. Guess you'll just have to take my word for what I've done. If the tea caddy come through, I'll be surprised because it didn't show up in the preview.
    And Pheryllt, I'm with you on the farm with some outbuildings. My husband's uncle was a gentleman farmer in Georgia and so every summer he would go stay with them when he was a boy. There were always horses, cows, pigs, chickens and something new being born. He loved it. His aunt would coax him into going down by the creek to pick blackberries that were growing on the old wooden fence to make pies and jam. I call him Huckleberry Finn sometimes.

    I used photobucket (imageshack should be similar) as my host and used their IMG link (copy/paste) to imbed the images. {IMG}fullimagepathandfilename{/IMG} use square brackets instead of squiggle brackets.

    heart driven hands.

    Thank you for the kind words. I was torn for a time about my choosen profession due to the way harvesting is done, but I figured if I wasn't building something that would last, someone else would just use the raw materials to build something else. I aslo try to only buy from sustainable mills and smaller mills that have a closer relationship with the harvesters.

    Lovely work! Especially like the last 2 photos – what kind of wood/stain? It creates a wonderful atmosphere.
