Tablet Stand

Tablet stands come in all forms. But few are so spartan. Especially in the office or kitchen. This stand is perfect to view a recipe while cooking or use as a reference guide while studying or working. And yes, it works just fine for streaming videos as well.

This stand features an angle cut that facilitates viewing and a convenient cutout that allows easy access to the home button. The tablet can also be flipped to allow charging with simultaneous use.

The featured product above measures 3/4 inch tall and is 5 1/8 inches in length and 3 5/8 inches wide.

Treated with either gloss or semi-gloss finish and stained to your preference with any of the stains pictured below, this stand adds dimension to your multifaceted life. If you prefer an unfinished version, I can provide that as well.


Table + Chairs

One project leads to another.  After building an outside addition to the back of our house, a table with chairs were a must!  Whether entertaining guests by the fire on a fall evening, sitting out back with friends under the overhead fans, or just enjoying the great outdoors in an outside office this is a functional and beautiful addition to the back patio.

Herb Container

Quaint but functional, this herb container does wonders for display and mobility. Chalkboard painted sides allow for easy labeling no matter the herb, season, or occasion. What could be better than having your own thyme, basil, or rosemary display convenient for decor and harvesting?

Also, finding that crucial sunny spot for growth is simplified by its handled design.

This is a custom piece and can be modified with different colors as well as hardware.  The container pictured above measures 15 3/8 by 8 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches tall.  The interior box measures 12 1/2 by 5 5/8 inches by 4 5/8 inches tall.  Let me know what size, color, and accessories work for you.

Herbs not included.

JB Stool

This well-formed stool is the brainchild of my father-in-law, but its design has always been in flux. After seeing one he made, I thought, “Crap, I can make one of those.”
Have you ever reached for that matter on the top shelf but poo, you aren’t quite tall enough? Well, get your dander up by stepping on one side of this cube, or flip it over and stand even taller. A folding step stool might suffice, but that would simply be a waste as this product can rectify many situations. In regards to versatility, it has no number two. For instance, the one in our kitchen serves as an ergonomic dog bowl and dish platform.
Easily handled, this object can be moved with ease to serve as a footstool, side table for a drink, or whatever other business you might conjure.

Recycling Bin

I designed this custom recycling bin specially to fit the city of Starkville’s recycling bags.

A hinged side allows for easy removal of the bag despite the often irregular characteristic of recycling material.  This can be custom painted to the color of your house (as i did mine) or whatever color you desire.

This sits outside in our carport.  The basket design allows for most recyclable materials to be easily dropped in and serves as an easy way to keep recycling outside, be conscious of the environment, and conserve what is left of my basketball skills.

Bat House

Zika, malaria, and dengue fever just to name a few. The most dangerous infectious animal in the world is the mosquito, and it transmits all these diseases and more. It is estimated that each year, mosquitos infect over 100 million people with mosquito-borne disease, and over a million people die from these infections.

Aside from the whole disease and death thing, no one enjoys mosquito bites. This bat house, constructed with guidance from Bat Conservation International, can house up to 200 bats. In some environments, one bat can eat 1000 mosquitoes in an hour. This seems to be much more efficient and long lasting than lighting a tiki torch or spraying one’s skin, especially here in the deep South.

Bat houses must be hung with some attention to the environment. I would encourage you to read about such research and tips at or

These bat houses are waterproof and have two chambers.  Adequate ventilation is present on both sides.  A tin roof provides an overhang and protection from the elements.  Holes in the middle divider allow for communication between the chambers and both walls of each chamber are scored to allow for easy mobility within.  These can be painted in various colors but a medium to dark finish allows for a temperature gradient most likely to facilitate occupancy in Mississippi.


This solid wood bed is a rendition of a farmhouse bed featured on For a comfortable slumber on solid lumber, this simple design with straight lines features a sturdy head and foot board and houses a double mattress. A cozy and relaxing mainstay of our guest room, this provides a place for doze and repose.
