Recently while browsing Pinterest, I came across wooden christmas trees.
It seemed like a great idea and a good way to get rid of some scraps.
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.
Here’s the finished piece.
The writing desk I used in my teen years, was still in the attic at my parents house.
After being used and abused for 10 years and staying in the attic for more then 15 years you can guess, it needs some revamping. Continue reading “Revamped my old writing desk for my daughter”
