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 ...
... its a big treasure chest ...
... Ok, its not the best joke ever, but it kept me amused for a couple of days :P
... Heres a nice detail ... I did the fixtures in a nice olde worlde blacksmith stylee!
