Had to adjust the measurements to fit the space I had to use it in my tiny kitchen but it turned out pretty well.
I made this set using the plans from the simple outdoor lounge chair. I used cedar wood, and adjusted the dimensions of the love seat to fit the cushions. Total cost (including cushions from walmart, not including granite slab for table) was about $250, and it took me about 20 hours to complete from start to finish.
My daughter and I built this table from African Mahogany. We modified the Anna White Benchright Farm table to meet our size requirements. It was our first attempt at building a table. We took our time. We think it looks great.
We built this bed in a few hours - so easy! This bed is pretty solid too, with the 2x4s and 2x6s.

Made from reclaimed 1 X8 boards.
Nailed to 1 X 4 Boards on the back.
This was a very simple project to put together with nails and wood glue.
This took about 3 hours and most of the time spent was on carving the initials and painting.
After searching and searching for a decently priced bed for our two year old and failing to find anything that I liked under $400, I decided to do a google search and came across the directions for the Emme twin bed. I loved the design and the color of the stain in the instructions but had to go with white as everything in our toddlers room is white. My husband said the instructions were simple to follow. I think he did a wonderful job for his first time ever building anything. Not to mention my little girl loves the bed. Thank you Ana!
Made this for my wife for our anniversary!

Thanks for the plans!!!
This is from the "Workbench to Get the Job Done" plan. Instead of using plywood for the shelves, I used 2x4s cut to length which made the piece extra sturdy. I also left a little overhang on each of the ends for clamping things (I wish I left at least 3" on each side, but I think I left about 1 1/2").
New table for our patio space. This was a fun, relatively easy project. The weather was my only hiccup in the building. Spent an afternoon making cuts, the next day sanding and staining and then assembly. Hubby saw the pieces laid out before staining was complete and loved the two tone look, so I went with it. I used minwax Kona for the stained area and covered everything with Spar Varnish.
We wanted a side piece for our kitchen so we followed the revised plans to make it a little taller. My wife is really happy with how it turned out. Easy, fun project that was finished quick.
It's finally here! Get all the details on my first book!
