The chill grasp of an autumn morning is upon us today. We each made our way to work through the thick, white fog that was sloughing off the Thames and its tributaries and holding the surrounding fields in an almost preternatural calm. Then into the warmth and light of the workshop to find that Paul had been hard at work quite some time before the rest of us.
Paul isn’t the only one who’s been putting in the hours. This week’s community gallery collection contains everything and the kitchen sink.

Kitchen Sink Base Cabinet by donhatch
I built this base for our old cast iron farm sink. The legs are walnut with the rest of the cabinet being butternut. At this point it has no finish. The 24 mortise and tenon joints gave me lots of practice. Being able to watch various episodes as I was making those joints, the panels and the doors was a huge help.

Small but sturdy workbench made out of pine
Workbench by Andrew Konopitski
KD Doug fir and white pine. Had to change the vice location because I bought a 10″ QR vice, but didn’t account for the size in the plans. Very happy with it so far. Been watching the videos for years. Thanks for all the instruction Paul and team

Dining Chairs by Richard Taylor
I built two chairs to match a sitting table. I used red oak and finished the project with an oil/varnish mixture. The final coat was an oil and spar varnish mix. As you can see I made several variations on Paul’s plans for the chair but the basic design was used. Figuring out how to add my design changes into Paul’s design was very challenging but also very rewarding. These are the first chairs I’ve ever built and really learned a lot. Thanks Paul, don’t think I could have done it without your videos and clear explanations on how to do each step. You are an incredible resource.
Breadboard-end Cutting Board by Richard Taylor
Breadboard end cutting board made from 8/4 figured maple. Thanks for the clear instructions on how to build this project. Was challenging and extremely fun to build. Thanks again for your inspirational teachings Paul.
