After cleaning up the boards, I cut them into strips making sure to orient the grain for stability. Cutting the new boards into sections and gluing them I ended up with a sizable end grain cutting board.
Last week my wife requested some wooden bowls for a market she was working. She sells custom-dyed yarn, project bags, and stitch markers. You can find her stuff here on her Etsy.
This was the first of about 5 that I made in around 2 hours, Checkout and follow me on Instagram for more up to date projects 🙂
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.
Watch as I make a bottle opener out of an old rusty railroad spike!
The finish that I applied after cleaning the spike off is a pure beeswax. After heating the spike to a straw yellow I applied the beeswax and continued applying heat until the metal turned black.
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.
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.
