Being an English man in Finland the winter has come as a bit of a challenge to me. Where my tools are the temperatures as cold as -20 which means all the wood glues, oils, painds and varnishes will be moved in doors next winter as a lot of them froze quite solid.
I could not do fine accurate work as such it was more of run in do what i could til the cold made me run back in doors.
Fish trivets was a nice project which was when i discovered freezing glue. I used rope about 8 -10 mm in diameter as the back bone. wood was pine boards which was left over from boarding the house 3 years ago.
Double bird feeder. I made this as i am a big fan of lazy bird spotting. Earlier in the year i bought 10€ of scrap wood from the local wood shop and this is the only thing I made with the bits and bobs so far.
Blu Ray Shelf and a bin. A slight miscalculation on the dvd rack turned it quite quickly in to a bluray and playstation 3 gaming rack. Much to the joy of my stepdaughter. The drink on the shelf picture was to prove it was not wonky.. the bin was fun to make and even though its pine/spruce it weighs alot.
Last picture is of me realising that they can have snow falls of 40cm+ and then snow drifts.
Winter is sort of ending now i hope.. I will post my future efforts.
