3 years ago I made a bench from a bunch of pallet slats. Quite a few of them started rotting, it started falling apart and it was time to build a new one.
My wife wanted some shelves in the hobby room.
After some thinking, I decided with a modern floating design.
Something that had been done before, by many, Ikea being one of them.
Anyway, here’s how I made them.
About a month ago, I build a temporary Parasol base, until I made a new one.
My wife wanted something from the attic last week and there I saw it, our new parasol base was standing there, right in front of me, it only needed some modifications.
About a year and a half ago, I got a complete 2 story staircase that was for the garbage.
Some of it I saved for later use, all the rest became firewood.
Among the parts still in my shed was this big stairpost.
From building my house, about 3 years ago, the builders left behind a meter of 315mm PVC pipe.
At first I wanted to build a curved sundial, so I cut a piece half the lenght and half the diameter to do some testing.
Eventually this idea seemed too difficult to do, so the idea went on the shelve for later.
Our storage room needed some declutering. There where bags hanging from the shelves, all sorts of containers taking up too much space.
Some simple storage bins were in order. I got some boards, nails and woodglue, a saw, plane and hammer and got to work, with these nice ones as a result.
