This small Table is 15" x 15" x 22" and was made from a few old Pallet boards, some left over Tongue and Grove, and a bit of 2x4 re-sawn for the legs. The top is finished to 240 Grit and then 1 coat of Walnut Stain was applied. 3 coats of Varnish with sanding in-between with 240 grit between each coat.

How to make a Toy wooden Sailing Boat - V2
 
07:12
This is the second attempt at making a toy sailing boat. I made one a few weeks back, but was never happy with the design or overall appearance of that one. This one however, is more to my liking.

Pen Box
 
07:24
In this video, I am making a simple, yet elegant pen box. I turned a few acrylic pens recently, and with the aid of some micromesh sanding pads, got a really proffessional finish to them, so I wanted something to present them in. For the timber, i'm using some left over 2"x6" from the workbench build video i did earlier on this year. The sides are mahagony, and I finished the project in antique brass hinges and clasps. A couple of coats of Danish oil to finish, and it's all done! Hope you enjoy the video!

Pallet & Scrap wood Box
 
14:02
I was lucky to pick up a really nice pallet in the summer, with some thick pine boards on it. I milled these down earlier on in the autumn, and they have been sitting on my timber rack in the shop for a while. So this week, I decided to use these to make a box to keep my pen turning equipment in. With the addition of some scrap mahogany, and a piece of Pine Strip board, I made this simple box, with a removable inlay tray for my Pen Turning tools and hardware. I had no plans for this project, it was made up as I went! I had an idea of what I wanted, but no dimensions or such. As a result, i would have liked the final dimensions to be less taller, and the length to be a bit longer. Overall though, I'm happy with this, especially the lid, which is something new to me, I haven't done that style before.!

Simple Work Bench
 
12:12
This video was inspired by Matthias Wandel's video on making a Simple Sturdy work bench. Link below. I wanted a smaller version, so I downloaded the plans for free (link below) and designed my own in Sketchup. Once done, I created a simple cut list, and dived straight in! With having some new tools to play with, this was a super easy build. The Sliding mitre saw was a joy to use, especially with the depth stop. I could never cut a 2x6 on my old saw! so Big Thanks to Mathias for the plans and video! Disclaimer - This is not an SIP Sponsored video in anyway. All the tools seen, are of my own choosing, purchased with my own money.

Headphone Stand
 
07:48
I wanted to make a nice stand for my headphones to rest on when not in use, rather than just lying them on the desk. A quick google search and I found template. The base is made from mahogany strips glued together, and the upright part is some pine from a 2x6 that I had resawn from another project.

Towel Rack
 
11:15
We made a Free standing towel rack from a Single pine board and a bit of scrap pine left over from a previous project. This was designed by by Fiance, Lydie. She had a specific idea of what she wanted, and gave a very detailed plan, with her dimensions. The rack was put together using Pocket Holes and wood glue. This was then finished with 3 coats of exterior Varnish, with loads being applied to the feet of the stands. Plans are available upon request. Please email me for details.

Make a Wooden Truck
 
07:46
I made a simple truck for storing pencils or Crayons, using Pine 3 x 2" and some Mahogany strips. For the trailer, I pre-drilled with a 10 mm Forstner bit, before coming in with a 10 mm Drill bit to hog out the rest of the hole. This gives a cleaner hole at the top. Adding Salt to the glue up stops the pieces from sliding around when applying clamps! Thanks to Stan Sullivan for that tip! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZdxLVc0LmY0D2-6GIVTMvA - Check out Stan's Channel and Subscribe!

make a Wooden Log Truck
 
06:04
I made this wooden toy truck from my kids from a piece of 3x2 pine, complete with real logs!!! This was one of the first woodwork projects that I made, and it sells well at the craft markets. The truck is finished to 240 grit, and gets 3 coats of oil based varnish with sanding in between each coat. The wheels I bought from Amazon, (link below) and these were painted with a Teak Wood stain to add contrast.

Flocking a Pen Box
 
08:28
In this video, I try adding some Flocking to a Pen Box to give a nice velvet finish to the inside of the box. It’s not as easy as I thought it would be. Attempt one turned out to be a poor finish. A lack of glue, or not enough Flocking was the reason. 2nd Attempt i got a good finish, but made the mistake of rubbing my finger down the inside before the glue cured properly. Attempt 3 gave me an acceptable finish. After I shot the video, I tried this on various other boxes with varying success. In the end, I did a Test on 3 pieces of mahogany. One was Sanded, One was un-sanded, the other was Sanded and Varnished. On each piece I did 3 tests, each one was a different amount of Glue. The best Result was a medium amount if glue, well smoothed, on the Varnished Box. So, I recommend varnishing the inside with 1 coat of spray Varnish / Lacquer and then add the Flocking. At least that’s what I found to give the best result. https://www.floc-king.co.uk/ Follow me: INSTAGRAM : Andy_Elliott_1 FACEBOOK : www.facebook.com/westcorkwoodworks Email : Andydascouser@live.ie

How to make a simple Pen Stand
 
04:04
I made a simple pen stand after seeing something similar on Holidays in France. This one is made from Mahogany and Pine. I had no plans for this, so was making it up as I went along. If I was to do this one again, I would use a hardwood in the middle as the pine did crack a little when I tapped the nail tacks in. Apart from that, I'm really happy with the result. Looks nice and classy. Will be a great accompaniment to any pen turned on the lathe (Future Project!) Thanks for watching and done forget to subscribe!
