left: Daniel (age 11) and Emily (age 5) building a birdhouse.


We have 5 kids that love to make things and show their creative side. Daniel (age 11) and Emily (age 6) are building birdhouses and bookends. Below are a few photos of them building in the shop (click each to enlarge). This page will feature items available that they have made themselves. They have help cutting the parts needed, since they are not allowed to use the saws, but they do build the products featured here. They are always brainstorming for new ideas so check back when you visit the site as you just never know what you will find next. ; )

(below) The Apartment
Made from weathered barn wood that we purchased, disassembled, and reclaimed. This one reminds us of the highrise buildings you find in cities, and so named it "the apartment". It is tall and narrow, and this particular one has an entrance hole in the front that is a natural knot hole, not a drilled hole like most, which makes it unique. No two will be alike, even if the same model, just due to the natural look and wearing to each piece of barn wood. The edges on this one have a very worn, split, look. You can see front/back/sides in the pics.
Perch rod on front is made from oak.

Price: $21.00 + postage

(below) The Outhouse
Made from weathered barn wood that we purchased, disassembled, and reclaimed. This one is designed to remind us of the old time outhouses from years gone by. This particular one has an entrance hole in the front that is a natural knot hole, not a drilled hole like most, which makes it unique. There aren't a lot of pieces found like this so most will have the holes drilled. No two will be alike, even if the same model, just due to the natural look and wearing to each piece of barn wood. You can see front/back/sides in the pics.
Perch rod on front is made from oak.

(below) Barn Wood Bookends

These bookends are made from vintage barn wood for that rustic look. This wood came from a barn that had been standing for approx 100 years. Counting annual growth rings on beams shows that many of the trees used were ranging in age from sapplings to 100 year old trees at the time Christopher Columbus came to America in 1492... this would make the wood approx 600 years old. Quite amazing when you give it some thought. If this wood could talk and tell of all it has seen in the last 600 years or so, it would be an exciting and interesting story for sure. You can add some of the history of America to your home or office with a pair of bookends made from this amazing wood. A genuine antler has been added to each one for decoration and would allow it to fit in with the theme of a den, man cave, or hunting lodge as well.

Several photos above showing various angles... click each photo to enlarge.

Price (per set): $39.50 + postage
