Fads to Obsessions and Beyond...

An eclectic mix of woodworking projects are detailed, which have resulted from the need for enclosures, housings and other support items needed to complete the various projects detailed on the other pages of this site.

The skills and tools accumulated for these ancillary projects lead to more ambitious endeavours resulting in various woodworking projects aimed solely at producing an item of furniture or of other utility.

Each project includes plans produced using Google Sketchup software with details about implementation and construction notes. The majority of the projects include photographs.
