  1. Projects Everybody needs to exercise!

    Everybody needs to exercise! So here are some fun Exercise Blocks that are going to be a Christmas Gift. Some will go to the “SMOOTH MOVERS” at the local community club who do the Gentle Gymnastics for Seniors program. Others will just be a good laugh! Merry Christmas one and all.
  2. Recycled Oak Flooring End Grain Mosaic Butchers Block

    Having an ongoing supply of 1" oak flooring offcuts from a local business, I set about making something truly tactile and special. There are over 16 different processes from start to finish with this project. There is careful selection of timber required to ensure there are no knots in the...
  3. Bookmark

    This is my latest bookmark. These are much like cutting boards, you make one and suddenly you have an idea of how you can use your odds and bobs that are lying around the shop, to make another, then another, then… They're easy to make, don't use a lot of lumber and people fall all over...
  4. Dolls pram

    This is the third one of these I have made, they stand up to a lot of punishment. My daughters twins got the first one and they take turns sitting in it and getting rammed into things. This one is for a friend of my daughters child who is two, she should get quite a few years of fun out of it.
  5. Offcuts Cheeseboard prize for the Boys&Girls Club competition day.

    Offcuts Cheeseboard prize for the Boys&Girls Club competition day. My wife is the head gymnastics coach who is organizing the club competition, so as a fund raiser, my stash of wooden toys was raided plus a requested "Cheeseboard".. Just goes to show, no scrap timber in my shed, just offcuts...
  6. Their is no sure thing as scrap timber, just offcuts awaiting a project.

    Their is no sure thing as scrap timber, just offcuts awaiting a project. My daughter along with being a full time mum does amateur professional photography plus does up cycling of old furniture that would otherwise become landfill. [I got her a SCMS for Christmas] We had discussed the making a...
  7. A Thank You for one of the upcoming 50yr Reunion organizers

    A Thank You for one of the upcoming 50yr Reunion organizers. One of the blokes in our mob who joined the Navy together has been very busy for the past few years locating and chasing up people. So in appreciation I thought he should receive a hand made timber item from the shed of "A Crowe...
  8. Little tray back truck toy for gifts or giveaways

    Little tray back truck toy for gifts or giveaways I started playing around with an existing template pattern I had to make a slightly different bigger little wooden toy truck. The body is old recycled Pacific Maple with 2" shop bought wheels. The trays are slightly different in that one...
  9. Couldn’t show this one until after Christmas

    Our middle daughter saw the little timber Christmas trees I'd made for the local community clubs fund raiser and commented that she'd like a set for her Christmas table decorations. Of course I took the hint and secretly made a set for her. Offcuts and recycled/reclaimed timber laminated...
  10. Little Truck or Ute as we'd say Downunder

    I wanted to make a simple little truck or Ute as we'd say Downunder that'd be strong and fun to play with. The Norm Marshall "Model T Ford" which I made a good few years ago was my inspiration. The first attempt was okay but didn't quite look right so back to the drawing board. The second two...
  11. Candlesticks from left overs

    Glued up a few odds & ends. Turned, sanded & some danish oil thrown in their general direction. Smallest is 7in tall. I like them. Thanks for looking.
  12. Woodscrap Bin

    The Woodscrap Bin is complete in the shed. I finished it with two coats of feast watson clear statin varnish and wheeled it into the shed. So far so good and shed is a lot tidier for it. (There is extra-wood behind the bin in the photo.) Bin 1 has offcuts of coastal black (including burls)...
  13. A truck from Santa's workshop

    Yet another use for the scraps and offcuts that otherwise lie underfoot. It was difficult to follow the rocking motorcycle but little grandson Sam didn't complain. The pattern for this one came free from a website.
  14. Oak Breakfast Table with Walnut Inlays

    This is a small breakfast table that I started while taking a 6 day course with Jeff Lohr. Since that time it has received 3 coats of Original Waterlox and a single coat of Minwax wipe-on poly. Both were applied with lint-free paper towels, and wiped down after 10 minutes. I may still wax the...
  15. Woodcarving
    Hey everyone. I am a newbie on here and to all things wood carving. I've had many knives ever since I was in elementary school, because my parents were cool, but I've never done any whittling other than carving points on the ends of twigs. Anyway, two days ago, out of the blue, I decided to...
  16. Blogs
    Project 1 - new lathe, old design I began turning almost 4 years ago, and like many people, I find it a bit addicting. I am not at the lathe every day by any means, and I have gone weeks without turning it on. But, I am often thinking about turning, sketching forms to turn, planning segmented...
  17. Blogs
    A personal challenge I like the way LJ's have been re-cycling and using offcuts for projects. I've decided to set myself a personal challenge and do this too. What you see below is a collection of offcuts. To give you an idea of scale the block of Ebony, which is an offcut from the Kaleidascope...
  18. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I was thinking . . . how would a bathroom fan work to remove sawdust in the shop? I know that when vented to the outside it will suck the warm heated air out as well . . . but would it work at removing dust? similar to this one -...
  19. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    We recently took down several large long needle pines that were too close to the house for comfort. I had them sawn into lumber. Now I'm trying to think of uses for the bark sided, irregularly shaped slab off cuts that were left over. Anyone have any ideas for projects with these (most are about...
