  1. Garage door dilemma

    So the plan was to just sand down the garage door and put some new finish on there. The doors didn't look good (pic 2) and was very dry and the harsh african sun was taking it's toll. The damage was clear after sanding the whole door. There was what looked like water marks, scratch marks and...
  2. A little Eucalyptus Table on a skip-found steel frame

    A few months ago I found a little X-legged table frame at the skip at the end of our street. Yes, there was a little bit of rust, but other than that it was in good order. A few years ago, a friend cut down a few Eucalyptus trees and kindly saw the the last 2 meters vertical in to slabs.. a bit...
  3. Japanese tool box

    For our 5 year anniversary, I made my wife this Japanese tool box. The 5 year is the "wood" anniversary, and my wife lived in Japan for a time, so I thought it would be a nice tribute. The box is made from white pine and meranti. The meranti accent pieces were toned with aniline dye in shellac...

  8. Small jewelry box

    This is a 70th birthday gift for my Aunt. No plans, no drawings, the whole thing was pretty much done on the fly, and I can't really identify the style of it… :) It's definitely not without flaws, but turned out reasonably well. Miters and rough shaping of the sides were done on a table saw, and...
  9. Small tool organizer for midi lathe back plate

    We recently redid our backyard, and bought new patio furniture. I salvaged a bunch of wood from the old, inexpensive meranti furniture we had before, and have been finding it useful for small shop projects and fixtures. I needed a better place to put the levers, allen wrenches, and drive centers...

  12. Meranti Dart Board Cabinet

    I made this dart board cabinet from meranti. The simple frieze at the top is my first attempt at carving anything. Meranti is easy to machine and carve so a good choice for this type of project.

  14. Replacement handle for coffee machine

    Well, Portugal is a land which is hold together with coffee and port. The machines though are often equipped with a lot of plastic parts, even the handles on the coffee-holder, which gets hot and needs some force to put on and of the machine. No wonder that these handles break after sometime. A...

    This table is now sitting on a deck of house of a very good friend of mine. It is over looking the Boat Club in Hervey Bay.. also looks over Fraser Island… I have even christened it .. twice spilt beer on it. The slats are tongue ended and fitted into grooves in the borders and cross pieces...
  16. Workbench

    This is a hybrid Roubo style workbench, adapted from the project described in Fine Woodworking. I wanted to make the bench top in maple but unfortunately the lumberyard was out of stock and I didn't want to wait, so I settled for ash, which is softer. The legs are made from meranti, of which I...

    Here are some picture frames made from reclaimed and scrap stock. I wanted to make 2 frames to house my son's self portrait lino prints. So I got to work on some smaller frames from cut-offs - all keyed mitres. The darker wood came up beautifully after a 'mahogony' stain and some Linseed Oil...

    This was an exercise in finger/box joints. I made a jig for a table router, by the 2nd test joint it was dialed in. The timber is 19mm (3/4") Meranti, also known as Pacific Maple. After gluing up the boards I hand planed them flat - that was my zen moment with this project. It was very...

    The Kookaburra is Australia's largest kingfisher, it has a laughing call and in our area predicts a weather change in 6-10 days time. We actually noted when the birds were calling for 6 months. They were correct every time ! This piece has all been carved from one block of Meranti timber. It...
