It’s clear that folks have been having a great time with a whole range of different projects over the last month or so. See below for a range of neat creations.
Desktop Organiser by Sharon Casa
In cherry and walnut. Finished with Watco Danish oil and Trewax. Made for my 6 y.o. daughter.
Desktop Organiser by Chris
Keepsake Box by rotaryw
Oak and walnut wood and mahogany veneer leaves, inlayed. Got inspired by different Pauls techniques and projects that I combined here. Finished with shellac and wax..
Wall-Hanging Saw Till by Rob M.
Storage till for my saws & layout tools. Inspired by Paul’s Tool Cabinet project, but narrower and without doors. The side panels of the cabinet are shaped to resemble the curved shape of a traditional hand saw. Cherry with Baltic birch ply for the back panel and drawer bottom. Finished w/ amber shellac.
Coffee Table by Orestis
Coffee Table made of Spruce/Pine
Carrying Tote by nemo
A small tote for clothesline pins. Made from recovered wood (unknown type, from drawers). Bottom is oak. Finished with acrylic varnish. Sixth attempt at dovetails but first time trying angled dovetails. Clamping for gluing would have been much easier if I had switched the tails and pins. Goes without saying but entirely made with hand tools using the techniques taught by mr. Sellers.

Set of Dovetail Marking Gauges by Rob Drown
Followed Pauls process for making the group. The center is walnut and the light colored wood is maple.
Clothes Airer by Kurt Schultz
Frame is white cedar harvested from a raised garden planter. Rails are from a wiry piece of maple. It has a nice figure and pattern, however it took a bit of effort to get to shape. This was my “aha moment” to sensitivity and really got me to make deliberate, careful approaches with various tools. Even the cedar proved to be multi-directional in grain. Not easy to see in clear cedar, but the plane sure “seen” it! This was probably my most technically challenging project to date. I am very happy with the outcome of it all.
‘How 2’ Table by Matthew Newman
My 7th project based on the How to Make a Table, this is my first one with a drawer. Made with maple and a black walnut drawer front

Desktop Organiser by David Vergona

Dovetail Box and Snake by Marc-Andre Petit
Dovetail box made of pine with the snake made of cherrywood with my daughter. We had a blast when the head fell off at the last cut! We glued a little piece of wood in a saw kerf to held it back to the body!
Wallclock by rayc21
Made from Walnut finished with four coats of shellac and waxing
Keepsake Box by mark leatherland
Keepsake box I made out of parana pine I think! Not 100% certain. It was made as a gift for my Dad. The inlayed embellishment is significant as it was taken from a scrapped table which the top was made up of completely with this pattern. It belonged to my Nan, Dad’s Mum which they used throughout their lives. It got ruined by water damage so it was nice to re-use for this project which is my best to date.

‘How 2’ Table by Gabriel G.P.
Table to enjoy mornig cuppa in our backyard, made from soft “Redwood” with shellac finish, nothing fancy just plain square shape but I like that and I’m sure it’ll serve us for years to-come.
Saw Vice by Patrick Rippl
Saw vice made of recycled oak flooring.
Bird Feeder by Kurt Schultz
In replacing a cedar post and rail fence, I repurposed a rail into a bird feeder. Cut and split the rails into planks for the roof, sides, perches and frame. Plexiglass panes. Fun Saturday project
Workbench by Yves Gaudreau
Made from twisted white Birch cut here in Denholm Québec in 2003. Finished with “Tried & True Varnish oil”. None of the 8/4 by 8 feet long boards were straight enough to give 66 inches long boards. Even the boards for the aprons have been backed up with reclaimed yellow birch from some old kitchen cabinets. I laminated 24 to 34 inches long pieces to make the top and the well board. Great adventure, very pleased with the result. The hand planning of the top has been challenging with the grain changing direction every other board. But with the good advice from Paul on hand planing and sharpening (now I sharpen free hand 😀 ) have made the exercise possible for me. Thanks Paul!
Sawing Benches by Tony Yeates
Long needed, finally made during Covid-19 lockdown: a pair of English sawing benches. My first substantial project, beyond bench hook, shooting board and 2 crude but pleasing sharpening stone boxes.
I made different mistakes on each one but learnt quite a lot in the process.

Some exceptional work above! I’m new to the game and rough outcomes are not unusual, but I simply enjoy using my hands, being creative and zoning out from my rather intensive business of selling businesses. I call it therapy. Thankyou for sharing guys!
