Projects

A collection of projects that you can tackle over a day or two. They vary from simple pencil holders to more complicated puzzles.

Block of Oak with holes drilled to hold glass test tubes.

I came across a hand full of test tubes ( new ) and thought that they would make an interesting vase. I took a very cupped piece of white oak and worked it flat and reasonably square.

I drilled 3 1″ holes into the block, gave it a quick sad up to 320 grit. I applied mineral oil and a Beeswax and mineral oil salad bowl finish.

Planter made from a block of walnut for succulent pants

Yes, there is snow! This video was shot only a couple of weeks ago.

While out shopping with my wife I saw these succulents in the garden centre and bought a few. I then realized I had no place to keep them.

I took a scrap chunk of walnut and created a geometric shape by cutting a 5-degree angle on all edges.

Wood desk lamp made from recycled materials.

When my daughter and I were going for a walk I came across some Oak shipping dunnage and had been holding onto it for a few years. I came across these β€œretro” Edison bulbs in a local store and bought a few. I have a number of styles now but settled on the classic look.
