There is only one fixed shelf in the centre.
I installed bookshelf strips into the two side so that the shelves can be moved into different positions.
And yes it's my camera I'm afraid and the angle the photo was taken at.

I actually did a, too scale drawing to determine the opening in the centre of the desk so the perspective looked right and the desk fitted into the allotted space.

So I had a need to clear my cluttered desk, working from home whilst predominantly being my usual MO - wasn't full time previously so I had more stuff 'grow'.
I've been refurb'ing my workshop so have recently replaced all the MDF shelving with much thicker ply so it won't bow as bad (maybe upgraded the support as well!) which left some bowed MDF - it hadn't quite fully flattened out (small bow left in shelves but should flatten over time once there's a bit of load) but I succeeded in making this shelving/cabinet that sits at one end of my desk now - black satin furniture paint finished it off nicely I believe.

This box I made for my bike tools needed a bit of organising so I made a till for it.

Seldom used stuff like chain whips, cable cutters and bottom bracket spanners are in the box while frequently used stuff like Allen keys and spoke keys are in the till where I can get at 'em easily.

Have you vanished it?

I would otherwise it will get grubby? Esp when you see my bikes!

Cheers James

Was watching Stewart Furini do a demo for conkers live this week and the spiralising stuff he was doing put an idea in my head so I got it out by making it.



One dinosaur-slashed bowl :D Spalted beech with danish oil and hampshire sheen.





Nice little bit of wood, that was.

Unusual to read of anyone having done an A level woodwork - I did it in 1972. Despite being told by my master (in the olden days when they could see the papers before they were submitted) I would get a C and possibly a B, I failed it.

My second major project since my GSCE Woodwork in 2012 which i got a B for lol.

A Kamado BBQ table made from Sapele made for a late wedding present for a good friend.

I had to get creative with gluing the frame together (mortise and tenon joinery for ultimate strength as the bbq is around 80kgs) I used packaging strap which is usually used for boxes and pallets with a strapping machine from my dads work.

I used Osmo Mahogany one coat finish for the project and pre-finished the bottom slats

This was probably the largest project i could manage in my shop as it is. I have since changed the layout to be a bit more user friendly and done a good tidy up.

got some very long parallel clamps from Rutlands which are surprisingly good. Top was doweled and glued

Cutting the hole for the bbq was a bit scary.

but it all went ok, did a quick test to make sure the bbq fits ok

And voila, table finished. It was a fun project and was my first mortise and tenon attempts (im not showing those close up lol). Perhaps the biggest challenge though was finding a vehicle big enough to deliver it to my friends house.
