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.  


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 14+ poker tables and dozens of other traditional woodworking projects for myself and others.

Scroll Saw Art, Wood Art & More

In the past few years, I have fallen in love with scroll saw art. What started as personal passion turned into a side business, Made By Jay Lane, where I make custom Bourbon barrel heads, wood art, signs and more. You can follow my project updates on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter

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.

Other Fun Projects


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.
