    I grew up as the son of a furniture craftsman, and didn't appreciate my dad's work until I was an adult. Of course now that I'm into learning luthiery, he has retired and I don't have access to his incredible shop or tools anymore.

    I get a lot of inspiration on this forum, and I bet some of you making beautiful guitars are making other beautiful objects too, so let's see 'em!

    I've built a lot of these. Short women find them handy in the kitchen. ;)

    I've built 2 of these for my daughters when they were pregnant with their first kids..

    Some plastic scaled models, way back when...

    And recently, this mirror/shelf so I would have a spot to keep all my whisky and whiskey.

    I built this bathroom cabinet, and made the sink and tiles.

    Built kitchen cabinets and tile. Never again on the tile. In my current house I used Formica.

    Looks good Jack. I like doing pottery as well, but I am I not setup to do it on my own.

    Here is some of the other stuff I make:

    Not in Australia but it's OK here. Looks like an unloaded Mark II to me.

    Wow some of these things are amazing! Make building guitas look like childs play!
    I make these at work, and as a hobby i work on side projects...

    Not sure what YouTube's done to that one's thumbnail /\





    When i was a kid i used to be crazy about planes, and built heaps of scale models etc. They're all gone now, and i repressed my fascination with planes for a long time but it's coming back! I just ordered some scale models from the net to get into :)

    Surprising actually, how hard it is to find model kits these days! When i was a kid i remember them being everywhere, i had to order online because i couldn't find one in my town! Crazy!

    i built custom knifes and have a nice stash of wrought iron.. which i may try to incorporate into a guitar some how.. maybe a bridge, and etch it.. doubt a wrought iron nut would sound very good. but they stop making wrought iron in the 1800's.. i have about 100lbs of the stuff.. have given some away to knife making friends.. i have found that hand forging knives in the desert is not really a all year hobbie ( beating red hot steel over a anvil with the forge going when its 115f out side just is not my idea of a relaxing hobbie ) so i sorta stop making knifes.. but have my forge and all my leather working tools still ( i hate trying to sell stuff, its such a hassle.. and i am not good at putting a price on things, i practically give stuff away.. makes me feel good.. but being a crippled and poor thats not very good logic o well.. safe to say ill never be that guy in wall street bending good people over for a buck and f feeling good about it )..... and of course traditional archery, long bows, and recurves.. i love longbows so i pretty much just built try-lam reflex delfex bamboo backed long bows.. im sorta of a jack of trades iv tried so many hobbies.. been tying flys since i was a boy but cant fly fish any more so i sold off all my fly tying stuff to some guy in Aussie some years back.. i did hang onto my fly rod that my x girl gave me and my travel fly tying kit.. hey you never know maybe one day ill get to fly fish again.. and im still great friends with my x girl friend.. just distance broke us up.. so it makes her smile when i tell her i still have the fly rod she got me ;) moving sucks.. stupid doctors.. desert be good for your health blah. i miss the green damn it.
