Dye and Dovetails

11-13-2014 02:23 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

This was a fun experimental project. I attempted to use a clothing dye as a stain to see what different colors I could create while still being able to see the grain pattern. I also laminated plywood pieces together to see what effect could be made with the different layers being visible. Check out the video to see the end results!

French Cleat Hooks - Repurpose Project

09-27-2014 12:37 PM by iamcliff | 3 comments »

We’ve had this old coat/key rack hanging in our garage collecting dust and whatever else didn’t have a spot. It’s basically falling apart. I also needed a dedicated spot to hang my shop apron. So, while deciding what to do, I noticed the old coat rack and came up with this. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VOvrG4Qz2w

Reclaimed Wood Desk Organizer

09-07-2014 07:52 PM by iamcliff | 5 comments »

Recently, I saw some pieces of wood with holes cut into them for sale online. The asking price was $70. This seemed totally outrageous to me.

When people ask why so much, tell them that the wood is reclaimed and that they are actually getting a deal compared to the $70 ones online. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.c...

Easy Pallet made Yard Tool Storage

09-28-2013 01:06 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

I was tired of walking around tripping over shovels, rakes, brooms, and whatever else was laid around. I didn’t want to buy one of those plastic corner tool storage things from the local big box store so I made one a few years ago. After yard duties have evolved, so has the collection of tools. Now I have axes, mauls, and sledge hammers. It was time to build another tool storage. This was made from a single pallet, so it has that “rustic” look. Tools used: circular saw, dril...

Wine Bottle Stand

07-05-2013 03:37 PM by Daris | 1 comment »

Here was an easy project that I did recently; a Wine Bottle Stand. You only need one board for this project and it’s something you can build in a few minutes. Here is my attempt at making a video of how I made it, and as always you can check out my website at: www.woodlogger.com to see more projects and videos of what I’m doing in the shop.
