I hope the recipients appreciate the amount of effort and skill that is going into these gifts! Poor Man’s Rebate Plane by L. Juday This…

It’s been another couple of busy, busy weeks here at the workshop, with plenty of making and filming afoot. I have also had the honour, as usual, of looking through and processing all the fantastic pictures that have been sent in to the gallery. You’d think after two-and-lot years it would get old, but it…

Another fine collection of images from our latest round of community uploads.

I built this base for our old cast iron farm sink. The legs are walnut with the rest of the cabinet being butternut. At this point it has no finish. The 24 mortise and tenon joints gave me lots of practice. Being able to watch various episodes as I was making those joints, the panels and the doors was a huge help.

It seems like the breadth of woodworking experience is here this week: tables with (intentional) holes in, split ends, quite unhelpful dado rails and very helpful grandchildren. Never a dull moment in the workshop! Tool Cabinet by Michael O’Brien Many firsts in this project – first dovetails, first turning, first raised panel doors. Timber is…

With the Bathroom Cabinet rounded out with a turned handle, and plenty of workbench customisations under out belt, who’s ready for a whole new batch of videos? For the premium projects, we’re well into the Eco Bin project, which is coming along nicely with the frames coming together. After the Eco Bin is complete and…

2nd grade pine finished with amber shellac and wax. Layout for the door build was the most challenging...now I have 2 other doors that will need cabinets to! One will be a first aid cabinet for the garage. The other issue I encountered was my cabinet sides where not true to width- not the short side causing the installed mirror retaining bars to bump on the shelves. So instead of making the shelves thinner, i opted to make a bunch of small clips to avoid the shelves.

It’s a rainy Thursday morning here at ‘Sellers Central’. The dark grey skies hold the promise of bright green grass to come, but for now Paul’s workshop is an amber-lit beacon of warmth on a particularly damp day. It is, as ever, encouraging to know that many other workshops are also being put to good…
