Thread: Trays for Christmas
08/11/2018 03:44:49

My wife has asked me to make some trays to give out as Christmas presents this year, she wants then dark stained so that she can use a white calligraphy pen to artistically decorate each one.

I started yesterday with a sample design. It's made of low grade ply from packing crates, which didn't allow easy mitreing of the corners, so I just butted them. I've got some pine that I'll use instead for the fences and handles, and will mitre those joints. I'm also going to use a thinner better quality ply that I have for the tray base, which I will try recessing into the bottom using my small router, or combination plane.

Thread: Entry Table | Part 1
03/07/2018 05:56:55

Hello everyone. I've been a bit too silent lately, sorry about that

Anyway, I've started work on a new project, an entry table with hutch for our front door / living room. So far I've built the sides for the lower cabinet. Just trying to fit a bit of woodworking in here are there around my crazy work schedule!

Thread: New life for an old highschool woodworking project
15/01/2018 11:50:18

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: poor quality paper
11/12/2017 10:08:45

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.

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**

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?
04/10/2017 05:27:56

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!

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. img_3801.jpg
