    Hi all

    After looking at so many pics from others I thought it would be time to show some of my work. It’s certainly not in the same quality range as most of you but I am just struggling with the beginnings. Maybe I should work through the masterclasses first before I try something ‘uncharted.
    The “nexus stand” I didn’t really design myself.
    My “small knives box” is just a variation of the dovetail boxes, has no bottom.
    The wood is reclaimed firewood. I chopped,cut and planed square small boards out of ash wood. The insert in the knivesbox is beech which was an off cut from a larger block which was bought.
    No electrons were hurt in all this…

    I learned a whole lot but I feel I still need to practice much more before there won’t be any gaps.

    That’s some nice work there. My wife has just seen your knife box and said “what a good idea”. I guess I’m making a knife box at some point 😉

    Diego, those dovetails look tight. I love storing knives in the drawer rather than on the counter in a block. What’s next on your build list?
    Great work.

    i'd prefer to make it myself

    Those are a couple of nice projects Diego. The joint work looks to be very well done. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks all for the positive comments. However I didn’t show any details. The gaps in the joints are there, some are filled with dust from the sanding… guess that’s a nice way to cover up mistakes.
    I’ll probably redo them when my skill improves more.

    First have to build some clamps, then finally a real bench. All those were done on a wobbly workmate. Definitely not good for my back.

    Diego, Your projects are really nice! The book/music stand reminds me of the Roubo Bible stand some of us made a couple of years ago. Keep up the good work.
