Busy, busy

Repair and Renovation Job - Display Case
It's been a while since my last blog post. Things have been busy in life generally, and the blog posts are just one of the things that got squeezed out.

Renovation Job - Blanket Box
In the meantime, I've continued to post new YouTube videos, with the emphasis mainly on what I'm building or repairing for clients, rather than the raw ideas that come from my head. Take a look - I hope you find them interesting too.

Repair and Renovation Job - Bookcase Over Drawers
Mitch's World of Woods has grown, and I have a stack of new timbers to get through in the months ahead. Again, go take a look.

Commission - Accessibility Steps

Finally, #TOOLMake17 is entering it's final week for entries. There are some great builds on the playlist - well worth a look.

Current Repair and Renovation Job - Wash Stand

Saturday Workshops - Pam's latest project

Well done to Pam, who completed the coffee table she started last Saturday, at today's workshop.
Made entirely from recycled wood (mostly from a euro-pallet).
Pam has really stepped up her game, using mortise and tenon joinery for the base, and planing sprung joints for the glued up, three board, top.
Yes, those are holes in the rail - we used a new technique to disassemble the pallet, and the resulting holes were left as reminders.

Ask Mitch - Obtuse Dovetail Joint

In response to a request from Matthew, who wants to make a stool using a dovetail joint that doesn't meet at ninety degrees, here is my take on hand cutting a dovetail joint at an obtuse angle. Instructable and YouTube versions here:
