This is a blog on how i made this project: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/96630 These days my shop is cold. Really cold. It is open on one side and it has been about -5 degrees C outside for a while now. I can only be out there for shorter durations of time and wearing thick layers of clothing. But it has been quite a while since i made my last project and i really had a need to get in my shop and tinker a bit. What to make that is not too big a project and that improves beeing ins...
It seems like if you can upcycle, recycle, tricycle, or whatevercycle something nowadays it is a big hit. Everyone is getting creative with pallets from making wine racks, porch swings, garden benches, or an entire building. But what if you don’t know where to get some pallets. Check out this video on some great locations to get pallets and start your pallet project today…..or tomorrow. Click here for the video.
This project is a great way to get the kids involved. They can do most of the machining, definitely the sanding, and then they can get creative with the painting. This is made with 2 used fence pickets/panels that are 5’ long. They sell new ones for $1.50 at the big box stores. This take only a couple hours to make (including paint drying time).

Hi guys. So this baby here needed a new handle, the plastic ones being designed to not last. Even though this is a cheap 4€ pancake pan, and that the liner is chipping out, it’s okay, because I use it for melting rocket candy. So it’s getting fixed. First order or business, grab some nice colored palletwood from my old urban gloats (these will last me for years here). Draw the overall dimensions of the handle… ... then take out the (cheap) wood saw and cut i...
Great way to reuse materials. I’m doing this with a standard pallet.
Thsre are five 12 foot long pitch pine church pews in the photo dating back to circa 1880. The client is keen to retain them in the local area in the form of a variety of furniture pieces i.e. dining table, coffee table, monks bench, butchers block, bookcase etc. The first job is to break the pews up into manageable pieces to see exactly what is usable and then take them to be chemically stripped. I experimented with sanding the old finish off but it is far too time consuming and does...
Check out my guest post on my wife's blog where I discuss how to build two headboards from a pair of reclaimed doors. There are even detailed instructions with measurements available for download.
The rumors are true. Occasionally, I actually do some woodworking. Many times I just have a limited amount of time and don’t post. I still need to get a digital camera to make the process easier. I was asked if I could make a dozen small bread cutting boards to be used for sending loaves out, along with jam, as Christmas gifts. As luck would have it, the same person also wanted me to help get rid of an old red oak hutch for her. So I am killing two birds with one stone here. The h...
W-pod speakerfrom recycle parts WOOD-POD SPEAKER.For a long time I have been using computer speakers as sound system at the workshop.The speakers were playing really well, but they were as usual dead boring to look at and could need some more mass to make better sound.Also I am a Lumberjerk so I needed a speaker that fitted this… WOOD-POD SPEAKER mafe2012. The speakers are Phillips computer speakers, the box an old veneered sofa table top and the logo from an old Noris ...
This is my soap dispenser. There are many others like it but this one is mine. And once it’s empty there are a few goodies to look for inside the pumps of these things: The hard plastic balls are very nice and shiny (not as in this picture, I stuffed it in a hole in my tabletop so it wouldn’t move during the picture). I collect them for fun and maybe someday I will have enough to make a bracelet for my girlfriend ;) The stainless steel spring in these things is of...
