Has anyone made their own furniture?

I have been looking at the knock off wood website and wondering if anyone else has made their own furniture or fun things from wood?

We have a lot of tools and what we don't have FIL could lend us, but does it turn out any cheaper making it yourself? What is the most difficult things to do? Have you ever made anything all by yourself?

Not all those who wander are lost

I've done a couple, and I'm in the middle of collecting the wood for the farm table and benches on knock-offwood.com. I can do most of it myself, but I do borrow tools I might not have, and because my dad is the kind of guy he is, he often helps just because he enjoys it.

Honestly though- start with a pretty easy design and have fun with it! There's something oddly satisfying about the whole process.
