Oyster knives #2: finally figuring it out

50 days ago by piddlinchic | 8 comments »

not sure if this link showed up but I tried pasting it from my Facebook page. If not, you can just go to the page. I will be adding more as I finish them. www.facebook.com/piddlinchic I’ve been having fun with these knives. Recycling “trash” has it’s own rewards. I could probably do a better job and save a lot of time by buying steel stock or precut knife blades, but this is much more fun and challenging.

Church pews project #2: ready for stripping

593 days ago by inchanga | 4 comments »

The pews have now been broken down ready to be taken to the stripping facility. Theoretically the chemicals should enhance the natural appearance of the wood but i have everything crossed just in case things don’t turn out quite as expected. I will know by the end of next week just how much usable timber I have.

Pallet Craft #25: I've got Christmas projects on my mind!

671 days ago by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Hello Readers! Well from the title of this entry, you can probably guess what this is about. Yes, Halloween has not even come yet; Yes, Thanksgiving is more than a month away! But I have learned that planning and starting now will give me the time I need to get the projects done. Why wait until the snow is falling and the bitter cold bites? So what will I be building? Well that is a secret and I will post all about them on December 26th and 27th. I don’t want any gift receivers to...

Building my first guitar #1: Finished the body blank, got all the parts.

697 days ago by daverose | 2 comments »

Was inspired by the Randall Price series on building a tenor acoustic guitar and figured my wood working skills had reached the point where I could attempt a guitar, albeit an electric one. I’m slightly obsessive about using recycled wood whenever I can and am often going through people’s old furniture where I have salvaged some quite nice wood over the years. This time around a friend was throwing out an old beat up kitchen table while I was helping her move house. It seemed...

736 days ago by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Hello Readers! Just a quick update: I got plans for the maloof chair, so I will be studying these extensively for my build. My wife has been perusing pinterest and the internet and has stumpled upon a few DIY pallet creations that she loves and wants me to recreate. Well its safe to say I am at no shortage of projects now… Here are a few of the projects she has in mind (more at my blog, I could not fit them all in this post): Now you might have noticed if you read m...

Kitchen Built-in Booth

853 days ago by Gabe C. | 5 comments »

So at first I was only going to post this as a completed project, but I felt that in order to keep from saturating that post with too many photos, I would also post this as a blog. Plus it might inspire me to add a bit of dialogue about the process. This is the completed project. This is the space that I started with. So I have a pretty small house with a fairly small kitchen, in which we have my girlfriend’s table and four chairs. The problem we were running into is that when ...

Jord's Ramblings #1: Salvaged Timber

1003 days ago by JordsWoodShop | 1 comment »

Bellow is a excerpt of an article that I wrote on my website. To view the whole article visit the link bellowhttp://jordswoodshop.com/2011/11/article-salvaged-timber/ Excerpt 149 of 507 wordsMore often than not my projects are made entirely of salvaged timber. This of course is by choice, but last night while I was talking to a lady, my passion for furniture making somehow came up in conversation, and she asked me about what pieces I have made. As I enthusiastically got into the conv...

Shutter and Pallet Wood Cupboard - Part 2

1167 days ago by ~Julie~ | 8 comments »

Continuing from yesterday Shutter and Pallet Wood Cupboard - Part 1 I’m going to dry fit the sides and back in order to measure for the shelf and bottom. As you can see, this is like putting a puzzle together, it’s very creative and mathematically challenging, two things I enjoy! I need to put dadoes in the sides and back where the middle shelf and bottom panel will be. I am using my 3/8” diameter router bit and my router table. The middle shelf groove is ab...

Shutter and Pallet Wood Cupboard - Part 1

1169 days ago by ~Julie~ | 8 comments »

This blog posting shows the order and way in which I create something. I hope it helps others… I found a few shutters at a local place where they sell previous used items of all sorts. I also have a huge amount of pallet wood in storage just waiting for me to make something out of. Here’s a rough sketch of what I have in mind: What I need to do is work around the door. Since the door is already made (normally I make a door to fit an opening) I need to make the c...
