    I bought a bunch of 2x4 and I'm making a workbench so I'll be able to adjust my guitars while I stand and at the proper height (50"), and recycle the top of an old table at the same time. I've wanted a workbench for ages.

    But yeah, anybody working the wood here? Anybody built a guitar ? :)

    Yeah - just finished one. Here's the build thread over at MyLesPaul.com: http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/luthiers-corner/177708-longest-build-thread-ever-probably.html

    I need to build a new workbench - or actually clean mine up after the guitar project.

    My father has built in the last 3 years:

    Coffee table
    Matching end tables
    Blanket chest
    Queen size canopy bed (I helped on this one)
    My recording desk
    A Futon

    Pretty sweet having hard wood furniture for a fraction of what it costs to buy. Shit the bed we emulated was fucking $1200, I think once I got done paying for hardware, wood, finish etc... I was in just under $250 (made it out of maple).

    Wow a guitar, that's great man. Countless hours eh ?
    This is my first thing but I'd like to design my own computer desk (and music).

    The thing I'm the most proud of is the hole with the tube so I can trash stuff in it and it falls in a bin on the floor.

    That looks really nice. I don't want you to see a photo of my workbench right now...it's abysmal.

    Just finishing up two monitor stands, a simple desk and two acoustic absorbers.

    The stands are awesome, should have done a build thread.

    Whilst building a studio and helping my parents with their cottage build, I've found my inner handy-man! It's a very good contrast to music, you get to do something concrete with your hands. Going to build monitor stands soon with some MDF (I think) planks I have laying around.

    No, loggers are only engaged in deforestation, and masters already make various products from wood. My father started a small business https://maxiwoods.com/, where it does mostly everything to order. But he never personally cut down a single tree. He used to do it as a hobby, but now he started earning money from it.
