Gallery Goodness, 31st January 2019
We’ve had a really fantastic assortment of pictures submitted to the galleries over the past three weeks! Now, that galleries themselves are in a bit of an IT-update-induced stasis at the moment. We’ll get them up and running again soon and start feeding them our lovely new photos, so do please keep sending them in. For the moment, you can see our latest collection of great new pieces below.
Dovetail Boxes by Brian Rosenberg
Collection of dovetail boxes for tools
Wall Shelf by Brian Rosenberg
Up cycled some old pine panels into a version of Pauls small wall shelf.

Wooden Tray by Daniel Kisielewski

Keepsake Box by Daniel Kisielewski

Carrying Tote by Sharon Casa
Made with 1×8 home center pine and finished with shellac
Workbench by Benjamin Caton
Paul’s workbench design, made from $36 in reclaimed old pine lumber from old Portland homes.
Lamp by Nathan Fletcher-Jones
This lamp was made using Oregon and old pine for the base. For the stem I used oak and red gum for the light fixture. I turned these after I purchased a used record CL3 lathe. The inspiration came after seeing Paul make the knob handle for the bathroom cabinet.
Lathe Bench by Øyvind Akselsen
Lathe bench made from elm. Legs splayed like Pauls saw horse
Coffee Table by Matt Sims
100% components are reclaimed wood… Legs are laminated 2″ x 2″ that a neighbour builder was throwing out, aprons are from a scrap front door, slatted shelf and stretchers from a cheap bed that was being dumped, top is laminated slated from a futon that another neighbour had thown out onto from garden. I think the aprons are meranti, everything else is varieties of pine. Shelf has grooves on underside sitting on tongues made on stretches using “poor mans rabbet plane”. Finished with wax on top of water satin varnish, on top of sanding sealer…. “oak” coloured wax for top, all else just clear.
Hanging Wall Shelf by Dave Robbie
Made exactly to Paul’s plans and made out of pine.
Workbench by Gordon Tipene
Workbench in pine. Solid! Great project to learn basics. Thank you Paul.
Bench Stool by Charlie V.
Introduced my son to joinery over the holidays with your bench stool project – he did a fine job with the 2×4 prototype. He’s almost finished with an oak version but had to get back to university.
Walking Cane by Charlie V.
left over scrap – ready to get older 😉
Sofa Table by Charlie V.
Shaker hall table – cherry
Joiner’s Tool Box by Mick Adley

Joiner’s Mallets by mxbroome1
Two mallets. Head is Hickory. Handle is oak. Both fell across my driveway in a wind storm. One will be for the friend that came to help me saw the wood into pieces to get the car out of the garage.

Saw Vise by Simon Wray
Oak and walnut saw vise with wooden screws and nuts. The lower three screws were overkill, but this was a very enjoyable design/build.
Hanging Wall Shelf by Ilir Gorani
For this project I used hard maple and amber shellac for the finish.
Thank you to everyone who has sent a picture in!
If you would like to submit a picture to the gallery, please use the submissions form, and remember, there are plenty more projects to see in the galleries, so do have a look at the menu at the top of the website.
The screen door was a very pleasant surprise. The rest were good , but he worked outside the box. I build things and give them away to neighbors, but am expanding my wood skills thanks to your efforts, which I find are just about right. Not too talky, but very informative. Next is a basement project for a neighbor with sump system, lights, shelving and a false window for ambience. The guy has very rudimentary skills, but seems eager to learn. He will have the project for bragging rights and as a gaming studio for his wife.
The saw vice is quite impressive, Simon! Well done! Maybe I will stumble upon your plans somewhere? 😉. Are you satisfied with its stability in clamping?
Thanks Kurt. I didn’t develop plans myself for this build, but based it on a design by Bear Kat…
If you look at those plans you’ll see that my finished vise evolved quite a bit from the original. And yes, it clamps like a champ and I improved the holding capability by adding suede to the jaws.
In case Simon (@wood-devotee ) doesn’t see this, the design is similar to one that Greg Merritt (@gman3555) documents in this thread https://woodworkingmasterclasses.com/discussions/topic/saw-vise-build where there’s his excellent drawing in pdf.
Thanks for the heads up pnj2411.
