Gallery Goodness, 19th November 2019

It’s a little cold here in the workshop, but if there’s one sure fire way to warm up it’s to get to the workbench and get active. (Or, failing that, you could possibly jog on the spot.) It’s good to see that you have all been keeping busy.

A TV rack made of construction grade spruce, because it’s my first big project after the workbench and I wasn’t sure not to muddle it.

Well it’s not a dining chair but I’ve used some techniques I’ve learned from Paul to complete this chair.


Toilet Seat by donhatch

Toilet Seat by donhatch

I used some leftover ash scraps from our new bathroom floor to make this toilet seat. I looked at how the old oak seat on our other toilet was constructed. It was made from six pieces arranged in a square with tongue and groove joints. I bought a Stanley 48 plane on eBay and watched Paul’s video to learn how to use it. It has a red oak stain and Osmo poly oil finish.


Spokeshave by Sharon C

Spokeshave by Sharon C

I made a wooden spokeshave to shape spindles for the Shaker Bench project. I followed Paul’s advice of making a round bottom one also. I can swap the Veritas spokeshave kit between the flat (maple) and the round (cherry). I opted not to use the brass strip, so the walnut one is the spare.


Workbench by Dave Alvarez

Workbench by Dave Alvarez

My copy of Paul’s plywood workbench. Its identical to his plans with the exception of 1) a solid pine (2 x 4) top and 2) through, wedged dovetailed horizontal pieces on the leg frames, without his extensions on the ends. Othewise, all 3/4 birch plywood construction, with a 10″ Yost vice and casters.


Shoe Cabinet by Wayne Nagle

Shoe Cabinet by Wayne Nagle

Christmas present for my son and his wife. I made this shoe cabinet out of white ash harvested by my late father from the Family Farm in Pennsylvania. The ash is air-dried and finished in black with a floor finishing product called duraseal. The shelves and case are all made from 8 quarter stock split in book Matched. In case Corners are 45 degree joints strengthened with tapered dovetail splines. The Stiles and rails are also grain matched. The door panels are made from West African Padouk and are book Matched and sequentially matched.

Another pair of wall brackets in ash which will support my handsaw cabinet. These are stronger than anything I can find at a store. Thanks Paul Sellers.

    I like that the picture that shows on the main WWMC page shows the toilet seat, when according to Wikipedia November 19th is Word Toilet Day.

      Would you believe that that was a coincidence!? We wanted to shoe that wooden furniture needn’t be glamorous to be worthwhile or well crafted.
