For Mother’s day, I wanted to make my wife a little planter box for in the kitchen. Something to hold a couple of small succulents. Like most of my projects, I like to follow an organic process and discover my dimensions as I work. I had a very long and thin piece of scrap wood that I was saving for some reason and thought this was the perfect opportunity to glue it up and use…
This has to be one of my favorite things to look at. I love how Walnut has so much character.
This puzzle is actually very simple to make.
Starting off I took some stock that had a number of ugly checks and cracks down the length. After processing the wood I marked my first piece to get an estimate for now long each piece would be.
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.
The shop is still really cold, But I had to get out of the house. You can see frost on some of my tools and also on the wood!
Over the holidays I made a number of these little candle holders for the family. I originally saw a similar project on Pinterest and enjoyed how simple they were.
Watch as I make a very simple pencil holder for my growing collection.
I want to thank Jimmy Diresta and Gary Vaynerchuk simply because they are both inspirational and genuine people. Both Jimmy and Gary said that hey often make content and keep it unlisted but the point is that something was made. And that got me thinking about my own projects.
