Tool Cabinet by Johnny B
I built 3 separate cabinets from Baltic Birch plywood and assembled them as a 94 inch long cabinet. The drawer fronts are fashioned from Ash harvetsed off my property into a single 94 inch unit. I used a half inch round over bit to achieve the look I desired. I applied yellow dye then a mahogany dye to chieve the color I desired. I fabricated the handles using Ash so that I could slide labels into each one to identify each drawers contents.
Coffee Table by Matt Sims
Tiled Top Coffee Table. Yet another coffee table made using reclaimed materials. Legs and frame for top made from rafters, aprons from floorboards from same house, bed of top is an old piece of 18mm ply. Dovetail splines and turnbuttons are oak from the side of an old kitchen cabinet door. Tiles are offcuts from the tiled floor seen in the picture. First time doing the slpined mitre joint; I’m rather pleased. Thanks Paul!
Tool Drawer Organizer by Dave R
I made the tool drawer organizer in pine. I had some sapele thin plywood that I veneered to the front of the drawers. I really like the design and it was great practice on dovetails, housings and careful layout. Thanks.

Bedside Cabinet by Nathan
I found these drawers on hard rubbish and thought they looked like they would repair well. The top and sides were coming apart and the original feet were all split. The drawers are made from myrtle and came up so nicely with a coat of shellac and then three coats of water based poly. There was some joinery to the drawers and turned out they were designed by Fred Ward who was an Australian furniture designer, though it was the timber which I was so impressed with being over 60 years old it was still in top condition. I had to make new feet for it and then it was done. People are always throwing good timber furniture which makes me think, there aren’t as many hand skilled people around as once were or we can’t be bothered with old stuff that’s in need of repair. The top and base had a scoop to the over hang which I straightened out with the plane as I felt it looked bit more modern.
