Creations out of the ordinary by Geoffrey Sagers

Meal Planning Calendar

One of my wife’s biggest pet peeves is figuring out what is for dinner, just to have the kids turn up their noses. When you are one ingredient short of another amazing meal, it becomes equally frustrating. I made this… Continue Reading →

Putting up the Christmas Tree (Time Lapse)

My kids decided to take it upon themselves to put up (and decorate) the Christmas tree this past weekend. So, while I was outside tinkering, they got the job done. I set the camera to 5 second interval time lapse,… Continue Reading →

Super Mario Brothers Brick Table

My youngest son wanted a bedside table, and my oldest wanted to make a Super Mario Brick Lamp. So I decided to combine the two, and came up with this. The basic measurements are 16x16x16 for the block, and 16×18… Continue Reading →

Wooden Marble Track

I was recently commissioned to make a wooden marble track for a friend’s grandchildren. It was constructed out of oak with babinga accents. It was a lot of fun to make, and I had several ideas on how to make… Continue Reading →

Night-time Glow Sticks

After Halloween, the kids had some glow sticks, so I decided to do some long-exposure photographs in the evening. Despite no auto-focus and glow sticks of differing brightness, I think they turned out pretty interesting.

Rustic Picture Frame / Shadow Box

A co-worker of mine collects fossils and was looking for something to display some Megaladon (pre-historic shark) teeth. I had some old lumber laying around, and decided to make him a rustic frame using glass from an old picture frame,… Continue Reading →

Building a Garden Storage Shed

Once upon a time, I had a 3 car garage. I could work in my garage without moving cars anything else. It was awesome. Currently, my two car garage (which only fits one car) is also my workshop, so I… Continue Reading →

Rustic Napkin Rings

With the holidays just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to make some rustic napkin rings for Thanksgiving Dinner and other holiday festivities. They are super simple, though boring through the branch pieces can be a bit… Continue Reading →

Neckerchief Slides (and Drill Press Lathe)

My two boys are always losing their cub scout neckerchief slides, so I decided to make them some new ones. It was a fun project, but one takeaway was — I need a lathe. Any recommendations? Also, I need to… Continue Reading →

Exotic Wood Shopping on Hawaii Trip

On the trip to Hawaii, I also stopped over at a native/exotic wood store, Aloha Woods, (http://alohawoods.com) and shipped home some fun specimens to use in later projects. I hope you enjoy the video, please comment, like and subscribe to… Continue Reading →

Hawaiian Vacation

I recently had the opportunity to visit Hawaii with my wife, my siblings, their spouses and my mom. No kids. To put it simply, it was amazing! We took a cruise around the islands, and saw many beautiful vistas and… Continue Reading →

DEWALT DW734 Benchtop Thickness Planer Unboxing and First Use

I recently purchased a new tool for my woodworking hobby. The DeWalt DW734 thickness planer. I have gathered several waterbed frames (2×10 and 2×12’s). They are finished with paint, stain, and/or polyurethane. Using a belt sander tends to create heat… Continue Reading →

Vintage Fire Extinguisher to Lamp

I found an old fire extinguisher in my grandfather’s garage after he passed away, and decided to turn it into a lamp. The whole project took around 12-14 hours, but it was worth it in the end. Below are the… Continue Reading →

Solar Eclipse 2017

As everyone with a pulse is aware, there was a solar eclipse that was visible in the United States on Aug 21, 2017. From my vantage point (in Utah), it was only around 91% of a total eclipse, but was… Continue Reading →

Those Who Went Before

When I recently went to the Sacramento California Cemetery, I noticed so many headstones that simply read “Mother” and “Father” on them. Some had additional details, some didn’t. The sheer amount of variety also intrigued me. It was fascinating how important… Continue Reading →

Sacramento Cemetery

I find headstones fascinating, and on my trip to Sacramento California, we walked around the Sacramento Cemetery. There were some pretty interesting memorials, including a mausoleum to one of the founders of the railroad (Mark Hopkins) that was massive, and… Continue Reading →

California State Railroad Museum

One of my fondest memories of my father was a train set he had in the attic. (Our attic was livable space). He had an 5′ x 25′ foot train track set up and we would run the trains for… Continue Reading →

Sutter Mill, California

I recently had the opportunity to visit Sutter Mill in California where the California Gold Rush started in 1849. There are a few original buildings, lots of interesting displays and a visitors center as well. It’s off the beaten path,… Continue Reading →

Big Tree State Park, California

I recently had the chance to take my family on a vacation to California. One of the locations we visited was Big Tree State Park. While Northern California is known for the redwood forest, the predominant tree here was sequoia…. Continue Reading →
