All I had to do was remove the tank and grill, paint the metal frame, and then build a couple of table supports.
The miter saw is mounted to a 3/4" plywood base that’s bolted to the frame. Two open-ended boxes serve as the table supports. (Just be sure they’re flush with the surface of the miter saw table.) I even added a pull-out bin to hold short cut-off pieces.

This beautiful milk cup is designed for an individual serving at your coffee and tea setting, however, we think its great for many other things too (salad dressings, seasonings and more!). Cara is made from Japanese Linden wood with a food-safe polyurethane coating inside.

A friend of mine bought a 1965 Austin-Healey 3000. Suddenly I began to think that here was a fellow I always appreciated, but perhaps not as much as I should have. When I commented that the after-market steering wheel did not match the figured walnut dash, he handed me the original wheel covered in cracked Bakelite.

I especially enjoy looking at furniture built with curly maple, but the WoodNet Woodworking Forum has a thread of projects photos that includes many non-furniture projects, including this beautiful candle holder, built by WoodNet member Andyman.
Many more photos and comments here.
