I did woodwork at school - it wasn't very interesting.

Woodwork I've done since has been much more rewarding.

I can do the usual shelf building, door hanging stuff, but what I really enjoy is the more unusual ...

Treasure Chest

A chest I made for my mum

 

This is a chest I made for my mum ... its made from an old pallet a cut up battered leather jacket and a few bits I bought from the hardware store ...

I like using all sorts of wood, but I tend to come back to recycling old bits ... usually, but not always from pine pallets.

Heres the inside (I got the lining from the bargain bucket at a haberdashery) and used some more brass upholstery tacks to hold it together ... my Mum uses it to keep her knitting in :D

 

 

 

 

 

Very very silly joke fishtank

When you first think of these things, you always underestimate the amount of time and effort a not very funny joke will actually take to pull off!

We needed something to hold our new fish tank, it neede to be sturdy and have some way of holding the lighting ... this was my solution ...
