This is a bit of an experiment. Most forums I've been on have had a "Post pics of [something topical]" thread, but not this one. There's probably a good reason for that, but I'm going to stick my neck out anyway.

The idea is, quite simply, to post a photo of the last thing you made. It can be something quite insignificant, a component of something bigger, or a completed project. It can be something that's not thread-worthy on its own, or it can be something that already has a 9 page WIP thread in the Projects section, it really doesn't matter! It's just a bit of fun, but hopefully it will generate some discussion too.

So here's my offering to get the ball rolling. I could have posted a photo of a mug of tea, but that's hardly relevant. This is a replacement guide knob for SWMBO's Burgess bandsaw. Formally it was in the care of her Dad, who isn't the most mechanically minded, hence why it needed a bit of a spruce up before going back into service!

Spent the last couple of weekends putting this patio table together to keep SWMBO happy. Hopefully that gives me some breathing space to get on with what I want to!

The last thing I made on my own was a Computer desk in air dried olive ash from MAC timbers with bog oak handles and cock beading. It was a great piece to make, but I probably got the price completely wrong and hardly made minimum wage doing it. I don't really care though as you don't get commissions like this every day

I wish you could have asked for this on a more exiting day but here we go. Made another leather strop this afternoon its a light weight one for my tool box drawer. 18mm birch ply with some of the leather Steve Maskery gave me glued on with pva. The last one i made with a granite base is great for the workshop but it is too long for the box and its heavy to cart around . Just getting some of my tools tools sorted for the Schwarz atc class on the 21st.





Cheers Bern :D

Fabulous work Rich, love the olive ash.

A box to sit in the apex of an orangery, to hold up a clock tower above, mechanism to be an old style cast clock frame... Very interesting job!
The timber frame spans between the steel purlins and everything else sits off that.

Now having doubts about the size of the clock tower after seeing the base!

The last thing I actually made and finished which was proper woodworking was a potting table for the missus. I have a half finished kitchen, but I don't think that really counts.

Apart from my recent toe-dipping into the daunting world of carving the last thing I'll admit to is a stand for my son's new 42" TV for his new house. We both agreed that commercial versions are silly money:-
