Jay Lane’s Projects

I’ve enjoyed being creative as long as I can remember. Growing up, I enjoyed drawing and I spent countless hours at my drawing board. Nowadays, I spend my personal time finding creative projects to work on. 

Below is a full run-down of all of my projects.  

Woodworking

I’m a self-taught woodworker that got started around 2005 when I built my first poker table using plans I found online (pre-YouTube) in my uncle’s garage (using his tools). This led to other poker tables and countless other woodworking projects for myself and others. Check out my photo gallery of traditional woodworking projects

In the past few years, I have fallen in love with scroll sawing and started a side business, Made By Jay Lane, where I make custom wood signs and more. You can also follow @madebyjaylane on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for project updates. 

Custom LEGO Projects

As a kid growing up in the 1980’s, I loved building with LEGO bricks. There wasn’t nearly the selection that there is now but it always captured my imagination. Now that I have kids, it’s something I can share with them. Over time, we’ve accumulated a ton of loose LEGO bricks in our house and I’ve used those loose bricks to build my own custom creations.

Video Gaming Dad Blog

In 2014, I started a blog to share about my experiences as a dad and husband. I started off writing posts several times a week but I have slowed down in recent years.

New Father’s Guide Book

I wanted to find a good gag gift to give a friend that was expecting the birth of his first child. I couldn’t find anything I liked in bookstores so I wrote my own book.

Adventures in Video Games

I grew up an avid video gamer and that’s still true today. Before my kids were born, I tried to parlay my love of video gaming into several business ventures.
