    *It took me nearly 2 weeks to complete the building of a bed frame. I take that to be because I ain't no carpenter. All the same I'm very grateful to this woodwork plan [ **_Check Details In My Channel_** ], it has really helped me do such a good project. The easy instructions were amazing.*

    why didn't you mitre the skirt corners on that deck table? Would have been just as easy and nicer looking.

      It gets used more as a stool than a table. LOL! If Mrs. Making Stuff is happy with it, then so am I.

    Great Video but you could have salvaged a few more inches of wood. When making that table you could have made to side boards longer by the thickness of the other two sides. Would have made for a nicer look and or you could have mitred all sides but I got your point. No nonsense video.

      I catch 2-3 in each trap each spring(April and May). My house isn't infested with them. If you had an infestation you could probably catch more than that.

    good use of your scrap

  • JSTR
    JSTR 2 years ago

    SCRAP - I could never understand that term. Small pieces or odd pieces, yes. If you go to the lumber yard and buy a 10' board and come home and cut it up into smaller pieces, have you just taken a 'good' board and turned it into scrap? No, usable pieces for the project you are doing at the time. So, why are the pieces of wood that you are going to use scrap? They are just short pieces of wood. The difference between scrap wood and odd pieces or short pieces of wood just may be $100.

    • JSTR

      OK, now we're getting cute. I didn't downgrade you on anything but you fail to see that and for some reason and are taking it personally. It was more of a tongue in cheek statement. Not going to pursue this issue as it requires adult mentality.

    • Shannon Johnson
      Shannon Johnson 2 years ago

      You apparently do not understand the definition of SCRAP.
      Google the word SCRAP and you will see this fits the definition.

    This is a good woodworking book, “pepe amazing plan” (Google it). I took numerous classes and finished a one year diploma in carpentry at a local tech college; this is better than any book I worked out of during those lessons. It includes helpful images and goes over just about everything.

    I am in the retirement stage of my life. I perform a bit of cabinetry, produce musical instruments, and carry out woodturning in my small shop. I stumbled upon this woodworking book, “pepe amazing plan” (Google it), and obtained it despite the fact that I own numerous woodworking books in the house. It`s the most comprehensive book I`ve seen. Every topic of the book is covered well.

      noctanol there is a difference between the honey bee, which is the one with problems, and carpenter bees that he was trying to trap.
      one is needed for the pollination of our food, the other a bothersome pest.
      just sayin.

    Do you realize you squared off the ends of the 4x4 and then measured and cut from the other end?

      You might want to look again. I know the video is kind of fast, but watch his hands. Took me a few replays but you can see that he did flip them over before me measured and cut them.

    Ive got a bunch I mean a bunch of scrap wood, wanted to make several things but not alot of experience so needed very simple. I love the table, Ive got 8-4x4 4ft so I plan to try to make 2 of those tables. I would love to know how to make just simple plant stands to lift my patio plants up off the patio...I have dogs and one male ugh! you know they like to hike. I have a drill, hand saw, tape measure but no table saw ...not alot of hand wrist strength but think I can do these. Thanks

    i like the fact that you used the scraps but the actual wood working craftsmanship im not to sure of hehe its just basically cutting straight boards and screwing them together no 45 degree corner cuts for the edges on the table to make it looks nice not just blocks screwed on to just make a table or any hole jig cuts or dove tail cuts anything but i got to say i do love that fact that you dint throw it away and made use of it :-)

    • Foxiepaws ACAnderson
      Foxiepaws ACAnderson 3 years ago

      @Making Stuff Another thought just occurred. If they bore half inch diameter holes is wood the best material to use to trap them? and (this is just my natural silliness) can't you set them to boring holes where you want them bored?

    • Foxiepaws ACAnderson
      Foxiepaws ACAnderson 3 years ago

      @Making Stuff Oh hey I had no idea I thought they were like those waspy things that have humongous ovipositors and lay eggs in trees while frightening the bejeezus out of anyone who sees them and thinks that thing is a stinger...I didn't realise that there was a species of bees that did that. I know the wasp family chew wood to make paper bikes (not bicycle bikes for anyone who is waiting to troll me lol! ) we don't get them in the UK.

    • Making Stuff
      Making Stuff  3 years ago +1

      +Anne Anderson (Foxiepaws) The carpenter bees bore into wood on houses, barns, garages,etc. and cause damage over time. The holes they bore are about 1/2 inch diameter.

      +nuclearthreat545 The bee goes in the small hole in the box but exits out the larger hole with the water bottle(probably because it is the larger light source). Then it is trapped in the bottle. It actually works pretty well.
