Cantilevered Plant Stand
This was a quick and fun project that I can now cancel off the ol’ to-do list. I’ve seen them called cantilevered stand or anti-gravity stand. What ever you call it, I have one now. I’ve seen them hold a fish bowl with water so should be strong enough for a small plant.
Kitchen stove lower drawer DIY fix
Have you ever had to eventually struggle with the lower drawer that most kitchen ranges seen to have? Usually the wheels located at the back of the drawer wear prematurely. They just don’t make things to last nowadays. A DIY fix was in order and today was the day to make it happen.
How I built Jim a Mobile Scroll Saw Table
Ha ha. Actually I just helped, but seems someone was taking pictures unbeknownst to me. So without further ado…here is how it went down.
DIY Fairy Door
Every spring we write out a to-do list for the year, most of which we get done and if not it gets carried over for the next year. Anything from build a new deck to paint the baseboards gets put on the list. Quite a few of them for this year are outdoor things which require more consistent warm weather. There is something very satisfying about crossing a finished job off the list.
Plywood End Grain Tray
When people hear the word plywood, I imagine they would think ugly, after all it is a utilitarian product in most cases. But a furniture grade plywood like birch can be very beautiful. I especially like the stripey end grain.
How To Make An Oval Rope Basket
So far I have made a round rope basket with leather handles, a cat face rope bowl, and next I decided to make a long oval rope basket. It is actually more of an oblong trough shape instead of a basket.
Justice League Logo
We had a request for a large logo made from layers of wood. We were sent a picture of the logo and the measurements they wanted the finished piece to be.
DIY Potato Stamp on Fabric
A while back I painted grain sack pillow covers and while I still love them, they can’t be washed because I used regular latex paint for the stripes. This time I decided after perusing Pinterest, that I would try my hand at using a potato stamp.
Wood Map South River Lake
While we were working on our last map of Mahone Bay, we decided that since we don’t live on the ocean but the next best thing, a lake, we should do a wood map of said lake. And so the wood map of South River Lake was born. Go grab a coffee…I’ll wait here.
Mahone Bay Wood Map
We love different or unusual requests. We have scroll sawn the map of Nova Scotia hundreds of times now. Could probably do it blindfolded. Although 10 fingers come in handy at times.
