Woodgears.ca reader projects

Once in a while, people send me photos of their woodworking projects. I have, over time, posted a number of these, so now I have created a section dedicated to reader projects. The reader projects I post on the site all either involve some interesting machine or mechanism, or are based on some of the plans I have on this website.
