« Part 45: Smiths Industrial Bin raid Part 46 of Working with recycled timber series Part 47: Edna's Kitchen Work Benches Timber Planning and preparation »

The crate I recovered has been annexed by family friends for various timber tasks

So much for me getting to play with Maloof joints just yet

The following requests have been made:
1. Two appliance benchs for the kitchen 900×600mm from Aurora’s friend Edna
2. A second step stool from Aurora, and
3. and our family friend Michael wanted small low non load bearing wall frame for his holiday house, along with a Duck box for their ducks to sleep and lay in.

I think I will have to do individual blogs on each of the activities due to their varying construction methods, however here is some of the prep work for the appliance tables.

A PS Note: After doing some research on Norbord OSB products and checking out other LJs OSB posts I have a new box for my Ute made from the OSB in mind.

The OBS I have appears to be OSB2 suitable for making boxes and crates.
I wonder do any other LJs know how long I could expect the OSB to survive in the back of a Ute?

More interesting “stuff” to follow!
