  1. second pallet bowl

    same pallet second glue up and turning. I did a bead rim and a thicker wall this time, no blow out.
  2. Recycling center

    This project started back in Nov 2015 that i picked, from the junk pile of a sawmill, a 2" thick board, that i liked, but i had not idea what i was going to make of it. Also about 3 weeks ago I stopped (with my friend Barboza) by a junk yard to pick up some reclaimed stainless steel to make...
  3. Dust Pans from Empty Cans •

    July 7, 2012 Many years ago I made this dust pan from a 5 gallon metal can.You might find one this size at a restaurant near you. These are easy to make. You just get a tin snip and cut away what you don't want. Then you add a long wooden handle. But for today, here's another idea for another...
  4. Recylced wood projects, Bench Swing, Arbor, Draw Knife Sheaths

    Here are some projects where I used recycled cedar. The lumber came from my kids playground that I have built about 13 years ago. It has been moved once when we moved to our new house. I think I have pay about $700 at the time for the new timber from the hardware store. Now my boy is 17 and...
  5. Recycling Center

    This is the first piece of furniture I ever designed and built. There were no plans or guidelines other than it had to fit our blue recycling bin and provide a place for a lamp and drink. It ended up a little boxy but not bad for my first project. It's HD plywood with poplar trim., and painted...
  6. pallet recycling - shoe rack

    I've recently taken up woodworking as a hobby. That being said, I have VERY LITTLE experience making anything of substance. I made 2 bookshelves a couple of years back-- that constitutes the entirety of my career in woodworking so far :) Anyway, I've read through a lot of posts about pallet...
  7. back into to wood

    I had a crazy idea this weekend, I figured Newspaper is made of wood pulp, I should be able to find a way to make it back into a turnable blank of some kind. after a few different failed experiments I set a 7mm brass tube on the lathe and using long strips of newspaper and constantly applying...
  8. Gum printing on wood - an old photographic process

    I used the gum printing process to print a photograph onto a pine board. Gum printing is an old photographic process which was first done in the 1840's, and uses gum arabic and ammonium dichromate as the light sensitive emulsuion. First you print a photo onto a transparency, then spread the...
  9. Not a Ford, but it could be, Just a little truck ready for fun, play and imagination!

    Not a Ford, but it could be, Just a little truck ready for fun, play and imagination! Well it was a wet summer downunder and Autumn [Fall] has been equally as damp. My under the house shed which is cut into the sandstone rock has been consistently damp to wet as the water hydraulics through the...
  10. Pine Box Coffin

    This is a traditional Pine Box Coffin. I made it out of completely reclaimed pine wood. Using only recycled materials. If you follow me, you know how I do things. This was meant to be a gag gift for my brother in law. I built it while he was away at a tattoo convention in SD. He is the artist...
  11. Minimalist Reclaimed Wood Step stool

    Step stool for the little one so he can do the dishes… Structure made of whitewashed pallet wood and the steps are boards of the local hardwood Sapán. The steps were lightly sanded and oiled. The Colombian hardwood Sapán is a very dense and beautiful wood, unaffected by insects and weather.
  12. Wine Rack

    My new pallet woods wine rack. I painted it all white and then sand it to make it looks old. I know it is not the classic type of woodworking with dovetails and such, but with the very limited number of tools that I have and only learning mostly from Youtube and a few other sources. I think I've...
  13. hanging wine cabinet and trash/recycling cabinet

    Original plan was to build a hutch (sort of anyways) but there was a light swtich in the way on the wall so I built two cabinets instead. Inspired to build this because I do enjoy some wine from time to time and got sick of having a trash-can/recycling junk in our kitchen. Built this in about...
  14. Never trust that darn straight-edge

    Only one pic, because I can't ever find a good angle for this thing… I had a pile of nasty plasticky oak-look chipboard rubbish that had been ordered for a cancelled job, and some old sheets of kiaat ply that my Dad had half-used for some project, and yet more offcuts of some beech ply, and...
  15. LET THERE BE ( a strange source of ) LIGHT

    June 17, 2014 This may be the strangest repurposing project you've ever seen. A friend of mine gave me a surplus OBGYN exam light. The parts of the light consists of: A Power Supply / Light Source Box that weighs 5 pounds. A Power Cord. A Light Tube If you find one of these, just remember...
  16. Spot my wife's evil cat in my latest pallet creation! (child gate)

    Hello Readers! Child safety time! Yes, my youngest of 7 months found the stairs (no child was harmed in the making of this blog…) so I decided it was time to build a safety gate! This project was made from wood that someone was throwing away, but mostly pallet wood. Yep, they threw away...
  17. FOR THE BIRDS

    The birds need a store too ,they come to our fountain all day and I thought this would make their day . This little birdhouse is for one of my buddy's to hang in his garden . Made from pine and painted brown and tried to make the sign look like a neon sign so the birds can see it after dark ...
  18. Walnut bench

    This is my latest project made from a Slab of Walnut. I had the slab planed and then I sanded it and finished it with 4 coats of spar urethane. Right now it is sitting on 2 logs temporarily until I finish new logs and figure out how to attach the logs. Anyone have any ideas on the best way to...
  19. Build it, and the mess will stop!... That's what she told me...

    Hello Readers! Build it, and the mess will stop!... That's what she told me, and I might have to agree with her. This was another project that my wife asked me to build for her (seems to be a trend… yes…). To replace an old ratty hanging cubbie storage for my oldest daughters closet (nightmare)...
  20. Trash/Recycling Cabinet

    Just a simple cabinet that surrounds a PVC frame that holds up two kitchen garbage bags (one for trash, the other for recycling). Faced on three sides with pine, and cross-braced in maple. The top is birch ply with pine doors. Nothing fancy, but better for a woodworker's heart than looking at a...
