Given a better computerdesk I recycle parts from my old desk to modify a stand from the new desk.
In reference to my post in the forum section about Narra Parquet ... Target I have set is 40 boxes out of those recycled parquet. It is really a big effort to put these small pieces into a better look. Hard to meet the 40 but let us see the progress. To this point, I finished 10 pcs of 4×6 x 2 boxes and 6 pcis of 6×6 x 2 boxes. THE 4 X 6 BOXES. The challenge was to make a pinned hinges and the simple butt joint The pin I use is 3 mm in diameter which is nearly 1/8 ...
A little over 25 years ago I made a Stereo Racking Stand for my 80’s stereo separates. Its still in use today Its made of Pine veneered chipboard with softwood legs. A little while ago I scored a vintage Bang and Olufsen 80’s music centre (perched on top of the stand) from our local Freecycle ( web site where unwanted goods are placed, up for grabs, for FREE). Why? you may be asking yourselves. Well for it’s day it was top of the range. With remote control which all b...
PART II I suggest that you read first the first part of the series for a better understanding… The drawer In making the drawer, all the difficulties were turned to an easy task because of proactiveness. We cannot avoid changes of idea, plans, joints, size, cuts and other problems while doing the job. I don’t have blue pirnts neither actual plans in doing this project specially when you deal with recycled or scraps materials. Here you can find: undersize, grooves, dents...
See this post and more at Pallet Craft Hello Readers! You have probably seen lots of things made from pallets on the Internet, from chairs to storage and much more. However there is a key distinction between building projects from pallets and building projects with pallet wood. While both of these methods are recycling the pallet wood and putting them to good use (which I applaud), I want to show that the wood from these pallets can be turned into beautiful pieces instead of usin...
For more on this and other posts, visit: Pallet Craft! Hey all! Today I have something cool to share! So we just got a bunk bed (see my blog for type) second hand for my daughter to have in her room.As we were building it we were saying to ourselves that we wanted to put her stuffed animals on the bottom, but we did not have a second mattress yet and the bottom only had a metal wire support. It was safe to say we wanted to put something on it that would be better than bare metal! My wif...
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...
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...
For all the images on this entry and others please go to my blog: pallet craft! Hello All, This is part of my series Pallet Craft on my blog. It is pooring out once again, and because I have nowhere else to work on my projects except for my mobile work station (outdoors), I decided to blog about why I do what I do. Woodworking in general came to me as something foriegn that I had never really given a lot of thought of doing (I mean common, I was a tech student), I thought of it as so...
Find this and more at Pallet Craft! Hello Readers! Well everyone goes through a learning period when figuring out what can and can’t be done, and how you should and should not go about things. Here are a couple of my latest “woops” and “oh…” moments as a beginner at woodworking. 1. The wooden vice. I thought this would be a great idea and it seemed to work well in pre-applied testing. Unfortunately the threads are too few, and the wood I used for t...
