|Thread: New life for an old highschool woodworking project|
Years ago in highschool I made a wood case, actually the whole class made one each! Anyway, it’s suffered over the years due to the low quality glue and varnish provided by the school, so I spent the weekend fixing it up, and here it is.
|Thread: Been Busy|
|Thread: Coloured Box|
|Thread: Happy New Year All|
|Thread: Palletwood Christmas Tree|
Oh dear, looks like I've messed up on this one lol
i made this Tree today, what do you think? Worth selling?
|Thread: poor quality paper|
I like the paper, feels natural, better than the glossy paper most mags are made of. I don’t think it’s a quality drop at all, if any, I would consider it a quality improvement based on my preference for the ‘organic’ feel.
|Thread: Some more of my tools now in my collection|
I'm in Australia again, this time to help my elderly parents prepare for moving house. On a few occasions in the past I've been able to collect one or two of Dad's old tools each visit, and he's occasionally brought tools to Phuket when he's visited, but this time I've helped him do a clean out, and here's what I've scored: **LINK**
|Thread: Wedding present|
|Well done, hand made gifts are the most treasured, I'm sure she will love it.|
|Thread: Itching to do something|
Yep! Although choosing a project is not a problem, I've got those Christmas projects to work on, and a new tv unit which needs finishing, so plenty to keep me going.
back to reading the magazine, and to dreaming of more enjoyable things to do methinks!
Today I'm at my former workplace, as I was yesterday, and perhaps tomorrow, training current staff to do what I used to do when I worked here. Thank God I'm getting paid for it.
While I'm in-between tasks I have with me one of my magazines which I'm readying through. As much as I thoroughly enjoy reading them I sometimes find myself feeling unable to read them for too long because I get so wound up with excitement over ideas that I'm coming up with that are inspired by what I'm reading that I just want to get to work. But how can I? I'm sitting in a computer room helping staff conduct 4 sessions of MAP testing each day. I want to be at home working with wood!!!!!

|Thread: Wood framed cars?|
I found this article today, indicating a possible return of the use of some kinds of woods to be used in modern car frames: **LINK**
Just goes to show, the old ways are still the best ways!
|Thread: Ash natural edge bowl|
Beautiful. Must have been tricky turning this up without loosing the beauty of the live edge.
|Thread: Bandsaw boxes|
Very beautiful, well done
|Thread: Christmas woodwork|
Hello Derek, thanks for the feedback and encouragement. I do intend to recess the glass insert, but first I need to find glasses that I can buy in bulk, measure them, and then try and find a forstner bit that is of suitable size. At the moment, just took that top photo for fun, wanted to get an idea what the finished product would be like.
Thanks again, much appreciated.
Hello! I've decided to have a go at making decorations/gifts for Christmas, and I've got other ideas for other things as well. What do you think? Would stuff like this sell? The angel is not quite finished. It needs to be varnished, and I need to buy some glass tea light candle cups for all that I make.
|Thread: Half track|
Very, very nice. Well done!
|Thread: A small case for plastic?|
Hello everyone, a few weeks ago I did a little bit of recycling, and this new and improved teatowel rack was the result.
|Thread: Marking Gauge|
I've been inspired by a few designs that I’ve been studying on the internet and finally plucked up the courage to make my own marking gauge. What do you think?
