It’s been a month and a bit, and we have received a whole lot of pictures of some really neat projects that you all have been working on. Check them out below!


Chest of Drawers by Matt Sims

Chest of Drawers by Matt Sims

Shallow Chest of Drawers.Sometime rough and ready is appropriate… White shallow chest of drawers for an available space in my home office. All made with reclaimed or scrap materials. Carcass, (didn’t need support at front as so shallow), 18mm ply, back is scrap hardboard pinned to rebate. Runners and drawers whatever scraps of softwood I had lying about. Knobs reclaimed from old drawers! Painted white to suit rest of office, (and because wood was so “tatty!)


Rocking Chair by Martin Robinson

Rocking Chair by Martin Robinson

Seller’s Home Rocking Chair made in oak with a danish oil finish. This is my first proper WMC project. Don’t look too closely at the workmanship – but I’m really quite pleased with how well it turned out.


Router Plane by Matt Sims

Router Plane by Matt Sims

Made from reclaimed wood… Body in meranti, knobs from palletwood. (I’m shortly to inherit a lathe so I’ll turn some better knobs then!). Cutting iron “only” 8mm wide, as that was the only suitable stock I could source, though it is 10mm deep. Finished in shellac and wax.


Workbench by Lisa Burt

Workbench by Lisa Burt

Paul’s ‘Hybrid Workbench’: Made the base from pine with mortise & tenon joinery, but loved the look and strength of the laminated plywood bench top so I combined them. Added a dovetailed Sapele & pine drawer (my very first!) The new 10″ Eclipse vise was worth every penny. I’m in love with my workbench. Couldn’t have done it without Paul!


Router Plane by Paul Mumford

Router Plane by Paul Mumford

The timber is cherry sourced from a tree in my own yard that was lost to drought. The knobs are a standard pine cupboard knob but have a cherry base to raise them to height. the metal work is not pretty but it is accurate. An enjoyable project made better by the fact that is great to use.


Hanging Wall Shelf by Shaun Crampton

Router Plane by Mukund Joshi

Made a router plane using Paul’s videos of the same. Wood used is teak and the knobs are also handmade. It took time as I had to source the hardware to India from UK. Loved making it, one of my most satisfying projects

Workbench by Vidar Fagerjord Harboe

Workbench by Vidar Fagerjord Harboe

I made my workbench in 2019. It is 80x200cm, so slightly larger than what the plans calls for. It has served me well, but I made it way too high (103cm) initially. Great for joinery, not so much for hand planing. It took me 2.5 years, but I finally cut the legs. It is now standing 93cm tall. I spent about NOK 3500,- including my Eclipse 9’’ QR vise. A similar commercially made costs nearly NOK 20000,-! I have added holdfasts and planing stops, and the bench is perfect for my needs.

Garden Bench by VLADIMIR DANIS

My first time working with oak, making this garden bench for a friend. It took me about 80 hours and I loved every bit of it. I have delivered it on the same day I finished it and my friend was very pleased with it. It was great! Vlad

I made a router plane from scratch using Paul’s videos on the same. Used teak wood. It was one of my most satisfying projects


Saw Clamp by Mark Scarfe

Saw Clamp by Mark Scarfe

I have inherited a 19th century railway carriage (long story!), and with it many lengths of wonderful English Oak that formed the chassis. This oak was cut at least 150 years ago, since the carriage (which I aim to restore) dates from the 1870s. This picture shows the very rough state of a length of that oak, a few short pieces cut and planed from it, and my first ever woodworking product from that same oak – the Paul Sellers saw clamp. My first baby steps into woodworking – a small start, thank you for the inspiration Paul.


Workbench by Kent Hansen

Workbench by Kent Hansen

I’ve worked on this bench for five years. Today, I completed flattening and resurfacing of the top which was sorely needed. I determined it was work better suited to a younger man! LOL I do like the result though. The bench is some “Paul Sellers” with a hint of “small adjustment” in that I splayed the legs approximately 15 degrees from square for greater stability. It is 92″ long and 19 ½” wide. Tool tray was added as an afterthought. Constructed of Douglas Fir.

    Andre, I like the logo you have designed. It looks a lot better than mine 🙂

      Thank you! Althought it’s not the best looking, it’s simple enough to carve by hand, just what I needed!

    Brian Shepherd, I love your lamp with the stained glass panel. Beautiful piece of work!
