Workbench by Ashutosh Bijoor

Workbench by Michael O’Brien
This is my work bench. It’s made from construction grade F17 hardwood (Vic Ash). It’s big and heavy, at just over 500 pounds. To deal with wood movement, the central core of the table (running lengthwise between the legs, and the end vise screws), is laminated MDF and Birch Ply. I then used half inch strips of Vic Ash as a “veneer” on the top and underside of the bench. I’ve been using it for almost one year, and its been excellent. I rarely need to move it, but when I do I use a car jack and a set of dollies. I use this method for moving all my shop machinery.
Bookshelves by Paul Magyar
A solid oak Bookcase the shelves are fittted into dado’s, the back is veneered mdf and fitted into a groove, the drawers have blind dovetails onto the drawer front it was made to fit in the alcove in the room.
Spice Rack by Norbert

Dovetail Box by Stijn Bossuyt
Pencil box with lid, made from recycled pine. I lined the inside with red felt to cover up a blood stain, because I accidentally cut myself with my marking knife trying to get the lid dimensions just right. The inside of the lid is a separate piece that is glued on, so that the brass studs for the leather handle are hidden on the inside.

Carcass made from Pine and lid made from Poplar

Toddler’s Table with Chair by Diego
I’ve built a chair for my now 4yo and recently a matching table. The wood is oregon pine and fir. I always try to add something I haven’t tried before, so the table has large breadboard ends and the chair is my very first. Designed using whole number ratios… Made it all the size of my boy, guess I’m starting small.
Keepsake Box by Paul Mumford
This little box is made from recycled Australian Red Cedar with the Kumiko panel made using 4x3mm Tasmanian Oak strips. The frame of the Kumiko (jigumi) was constructed first and the lid built around it. with the asanoha design added after. The main box joinery is based on Paul’s “Bread Stow” project using screws filed flat to the timber surface. The finish is blonde shellac and cabinet makers applied with steel wool.wax. #woodworkingmasterclasses
Wall Hung Tool Cabinet by Matt Sims
Hanging wall cabinet inspired by the “Sellers” one, for my garage. Apart from the plywood used in the doors and back panel, which I bought, this is all reclaimed wood; Some of the carcass from an old rubbish, painted white, chest of draws given away on freecycle, most of the rest from reclaimed roofing given to me by a neighbouring builder.(Seen in inset) Drawer fronts and knobs are apple, from my own garden, and drawer bottoms is ply recovered from the wood skip at local dump! Mostly finished in shellac with dark wax… drawers finished with wax oil. Quite chuffed with this!

Amazing work here. Not sure if I feel inspired or intimidated. I do like Stijn’s felt lining and the reason for it – the only thing here I could (and have) replicate!
