    on this one I actually ended up using an angle grinder to thin it down to the ~15mm I was looking for. And then about 18h of sanding after :)

    that looks extremely neat though - it's a bit of the same herringbone pattern I did here and here, though yours look much cleaner. @PaulArthur did an awesome job at his bench as well with a similar pattern. For this project I just did it over with the random orbital sander. I think yours look...

    I've played around with plywood patterns. It's great fun. Started with this bench/shoerack, then the front of this chest of drawers, and now, for my daughters birthday this tray that is supposed to be used for her obsession with eating sunflower seeds The devider slides back and forth or can...

    Woodworking Youtubers

    Absolute love that channel - I’ve watched the videos many times, pure therapy to me. It’s the perfect woodworking porn if you ask me :)

    Thanks Mike! I had doubts about what to do with the mattress so I actually ended up buying it first and then building the frame/base after to make sure that the fit was perfect. It's 189x75 and it may be hard to find an old sofa with cushions at those measurements. I will try hard though, it's a...

    As mentioned in my last project-post I was planning to build a daybed. Ideally something really simple out of oak. I liked the graphite oil look on oak that I used on the project linked above and looked around for inspiration. Couldn't really find something that worked 100%, but did like the...

    For some time I've been working through the oak left over from the kitchen installation people. I build this chest of drawers a few weeks ago, and today I put this neat little cupboard/cabinet together. It's around 55x50x40 and it's meant to hide all the ugly cables under the desk. I've...

    Hi Paul - it was some spare oak that the guys doing our kitchen left over. I didn't make it. It would have been better with solid oak, but hey, this was free :)

    Thanks :) I like how it came out. It was done as one large 1x1m slab: I then cut it out to fit the 4 drawers, 1 large + 3 smaller. The drawer fronts were too thick initially and I do not have a planer/thicknesser, so it was a real pain to make them thinner... I ended up using an angle grinder...

    Some time ago I build this out of plywood. Now I added a chest of drawers next to it using same material and method: It's real fun to work with plywood and oak - the pattern takes seriously long time and tons of patience, but the result is very nice when danish oil is added. I am very new to...

    I build this bench for the entrance: a good replacement for the old one: Made the pattern out of birch 12mm plywood, took forever, but came out nice after the Danish oil Added oak to the corners...and brass rods for the shoe shelves - and done!

    Isolation builds...

    Yup, it's basically large sheets of leather that I shaped, cut and glued on to the drawer fronts. The first step is to soak the leather in luke-warm water. Keep soaking it until it no more bubbles comes out of the leather pores, a few minutes in my case. The leather is becoming super soft and...

    Isolation builds...

    So, I've never build anything in my life, but for my birthday in Feb (getting close to 50yo) the family bought me a tablesaw, and being pretty much locked in by the pandemic I had a good time with it.... Started by making a cutting board... I'm sure you've all made those Quite rough around...
