Spring is upon us here at the workshop and, with a long weekend coming up for some of us, I wanted to give you a chance to leaf through the many pieces which our community has submitted to the gallery over the past couple of months. The following images were uploaded during February. We will be catching up with the March tomorrow!

Euro Beech and Bocote Split Top Roubo Workbench
Workbench by Emmanuel Olive
Small workbench in oak with walnut dowels.
Fly Swats by Chris Hughesdon
I loved making these. The were made from a combination of Oak, Cherry, Maple and Walnut. I found the leather stitching tricky, but an iron flattened out any creases.
Occasional Table by chughesdon
Oak side table. Enjoyed finding the confidence to adapt Paul’s design to suit my requirements. Can’t stop stroking the tabletop, and love the stripes that oak gives. I’m gutted to be giving it away as a gift.
Joiner’s Mallet by M Kühl
Mallet – Paul’s project
Workbench by Rodney Worthington
My lifetime bench. Pine, maple wellboard, treated pine legs(not my first choice).

American Walnut is the wood used. Thank you, Paul and crew. I am really enjoying what I am learning.

Dining Room Table by Grégoire Bouron
After watching about every videos from Paul, I finally finished my first woodworking project ( after the bench and sawhorses of course). It is made of walnut. I made a video about the build, you will recognize many of Paul’s techniques and tools.
Milking Stool by ccguest
Milking Stool. Lime, shellacked. Started as logs from a garden, so it felt hard won. Great way to get to know the spokeshave. I also enjoyed using the drawknife for shaping the legs
Serving Platter by Ian Lott
Serving Platter by Ian Lott
Chisel Box by Charles Kyler
Chisel box with splined miter joints. Spalted Poplar and Ipe.
Small Spoon by Ian Lott
First try at spoon making, I received the wood from one of the farms I work on, the wood being Kunzea (Tea Tree). Which if you can get your hands on, is an excellent timber for spoons, rarely cracks, splits well, a bit tough when dry but beautiful all the same.
Workbench by Rob Grandison
Australian Karri (E. diversicolour) salvaged from a home demolition. Store bought Pine for the drawers and drawer frame with Jarrah (E. marginata) for the face frame. Mortise and tenon joints pinned with Tasmanian Oak dowels. 2100(L)x600(w)
Shave and Carving Horse by Marc Mitsialis
A combination Shave Horse, Carving Horse and Sawyer Bench. Constructed from wood reclaimed from Optical Fibre Cable reels. Lots of laminating to get the desired thicknesses and rigidity in the finished product.
Bedside Table by valeriodangelo
fir and spruce
Dog Feeder by Serge Debruyne
This dog feeder is made out of pine. Carving is done with a cnc.
Workbench by Greg Marshall
The top, aprons, and wellboard are southern yellow pine that I had in rough sawn 10/4 stock. The rest is kiln dried construction lumber from Home Depot. I’m quite tall, so the benchtop stands 41″ high and is 4.5″ thick. The joinery in the leg frames is far from perfect. This is my first piece of “furniture” and the first thing I have made larger than a dovetailed box. When I get the face vise mounted, I’ll be done. I am so excited! I love this bench, warts and all! I can’t wait to start using it!
Workbench by Mikael Arvola
Made from cheap Home Depot douglas fir 2x4s, with the exception of the vise that’s cherry. The legs on the end with the vise are a bit further from the end for clearance (14″), and the well is only 9.5″ wide, but otherwise pretty much exactly like the older YouTube videos.
Winding Sticks by wtwegner
Made from following Paul’s video.
Bluetooth Speaker by wtwegner
Bluetooth module integrated into a dovetail box. Made from pine and cherry.
Hunter’s Gun Cleaning Box by wtwegner

Watercolor Artist Box by wtwegner
Reproduction of a watercolor artist box from the 1800s. Made this for my daughter for Christmas.
Workbench by Stephen Hillier
Built mainly from Scandanavian redwood this bench is 71″ long. It started life as an unadulterated Paul Sellers design but then changed a little. I was pursuaded by other designs I saw that having the legs in the same plane as the worktop was an advantage. I added a front stretcher (it has no structural use) and some fillets to fit to the front of the legs. The shelf underneath is what remains of my old workbench recessed and fitted over the side stretchers which does add some strength. I have used a 9″ Axminster vice recessed into the front apron. I have yet to fit a liner to the front jaw on the vice. Plans include fitting a full width twin screw tail vice. On top of the bench are a couple of mallets and a small round hand plane that I have made.
Fly Swat by Donley Sissom
Laminated white oak, purple heart and plum. It was completely enjoyable to pick up my leatherworking tools after years of collecting dust.
Adjustable Tablet Stand by Donley Sissom
Adjustable tablet stand for loft bed. I built this from white oak and black locusts. It is to attach to the rail of a loft bed. The mount is adjustable to fit tablets either in portrait or landscape. The dowel allows the mount to turn. Used Paul’s raised panel technique to shape the main block. This was a great learning project for me. Thanks to Paul’s tutelage, I was able to conceive and execute the several different aspects from lamination, mortice and tennon, rabbits, and raised panels!
Bedside Cabinet by Harvey Kimsey
AIn cherry and white oak for the drawer
Kitchen Cabinet by Rob Appelman
I made kitchen cabinets using oak for the edgebanding, the drawer fronts and the side panel. The main body/carcass i made from plywood. The Oak came from locally grown trees. For drawer runners i used full extention ball bearing rvs runner . On my youtube channel you can find several video’s on building these cabinets. (RobsWoodshop)

Hope Chest by Farred
Hope chest for my new daughter-in-law. Cherry carcass, poplar till, bottom lined with aromatic cedar. There is a Swiss music box that plays when the till lid is opened. I didn’t have the skills to make this for my daughter years ago when she got married. THANK YOU PAUL, for enabling me to create this special gift for my son’s wedding, although I did cheat at the end and use a power router for the lid molding.
Dovetail Box by charmston
Cherry box with relief carving and cedar lined
Joiner’s Toolbox by jlweigle
Joiners toolbox made with yellow pine with red oak drawers and white oak runners.
Workbench by Paul Bowes
My new Workbench made from 2×4 and 2×6 stud grade lumber. Not the clearest but with some work it planed up well. Glued the leg frames and wedges as I do not intend to break it down. Finished with shellac mainly as a sealer as I am in a high humidity area and wanted to help make the wood stable. Rubbed with very worn 240 sand paper, and finished with 0000wire wool and wax.
Workbench by kenny
I had a 3ft bench which wasn’t big enough so i extended it to make a 6-8 ft bench using a pallet of wood. Then, to top it off, I put plywood across the top, then joined this to my old 3 ft bench, which is handy as it has a lot of space inside for tools etc. Then I got some timber squared and milled the lengths of timber. I think the timber is pine, but I’m not too sure as the wood was given to me by a vicar; and what a godsend this was, as I now have the bench I have always wanted or there abouts, since watching Paul laminate and the way he has made benches is something I admire. But for now I’m happy. Could do with half a ft in width, but I don’t have the space. The length in total is 5ft towards the front and 8ft at the back. I had to make it smaller at the front, otherwise I wouldn’t get out of the front door. Thank you, Paul, for everything you have shared. I have learned so much from you in a short time. It’s brilliant the way you explain everything and a lot of the tools I own is down to you explaining the good the bad and the ugly. I am now a record fan: absolutely love record and sorby. Anyway, here are pics of the bench. Best wishes to Paul Sellers and every one on this fantastic site of knowledge.
Lapstrake Canoe by Louye2
This is a 14 foot canoe made from okoume marine plywood and mahogany. It is a modified reproduction of a design by Henry Rushton – a canoe builder who lived in Canton, New York in the late 1880’s. He was America’s premier builder of double-paddle canoes which were very popular at the time. These canoes are usually propelled using a kayak paddle, but they can also be sailed. Mr. Rushton was known for his extremely lightweight and durable canoes some of which weighed about 10 pounds. My canoe weighs only 50 pounds and could be built even lighter if spruce were substituted for the mahogany.
