I read your blog regularly and love the mix of ideas. Don't know if you've seen this but I found a site with simple plans for furniture and household items. Matthias Wandel grew up in Canada where his parents bought an old sawmill, and built and rented out tourist cabins. Matthias is also an artist and woodworker with new articles each week. He's posted lots of pictures of his father's woodworking projects, from unique door latches to cabins with all the furnishings. Naturally I thought of you.
