Gallery Goodness, 2nd October 2018

It seems like the breadth of woodworking experience is here this week: tables with (intentional) holes in, split ends, quite unhelpful dado rails and very helpful grandchildren. Never a dull moment in the workshop!


Tool Cabinet by Michael O'Brien

Tool Cabinet by Michael O’Brien

Many firsts in this project – first dovetails, first turning, first raised panel doors. Timber is Fijian Mahogany, finished using Osmo polyx-oil. I’m a messy worker and like a lot of space to spread out. My work space is at the rear of our garage. I’m able to spread out on the bench, and store things away quickly in the cupboards below. All the tools I need, I can see quickly, the hanging tool cabinets assist me in the good work practice of “putting things back”

Shaker-inspired Shelves by Nat Jones

Shaker-inspired Shelves by Nat Jones

This is a shaker inspired book case/ thing to put stuff on. Made from white oak with poplar accents, 4 coats of shellac and a coat of pale furniture wax. The oak changed quite a bit during the build and will definitely do a prototype next time round. First time using oak in a larger scale project and it was bloody hard.!

    All of these are nice. Tipper’s sycamore/walnut box is really an eye-catcher–great looking piece! And Kurt’s adaptation of the fly swat is quite creative! The “Hole”way table is really cool as well!

      Thanks, David! I can’t take credit for the business end as I got the design elements of it from a photo on Etsy store that sells “Bearclaw” backscratchers.
