Cigar Box Guitar

Cigar Box Guitar

This was made from an old packing box, some mahogony and some flooring pine that I spent AGES cutting in half so it would be thin enough for the soundboard. I was really pleased with it - especially the neck.)

Cat House

Cat House

I made this for my mother and father in law a couple of years ago. Actually it was for their cat to shelter in when she was left outside after a house move. Astro turf on the top, and a roof that can be propped up horizontally if it gets hot.

This was my second project with recycled timber. I cut pallets into strips and then glued them together using ratcheting luggage straps.

The panels in this box were bits of tongue and groove that a friend had removed from his house.

Dog House Coffee Table

Dog House Coffee Table

This was based on a toy chest it was making a lot of a few years back. A lady asked me if I could make a chest with access for her two dachsunds that she could also use as a coffee table. She sent me a photo of the dogs in it and they looked so sweet!

Made from a pallet top (the rest of it wasn't good enough to use) and other bits of pallet wood. With several coats of acrylic varnish.

This was a pallet that was surprisingly usuable. Sanded and varnished with castors. two of them had brakes, just in case the table went to a house on a hill.....

Rocking Hammock Deckchairs

Rocking Hammock Deckchairs

My bestsellers! A friend asked me if I could repair two of his deckchairs and I copied the designs. Sometimes I can make them out of oak if I have any, or garden decking (sturdy) or just pine. Sometimes I make small ones as well for small people, as you can see. They are very comfortable and the fabric we use is recycled too (thanks to my wife)

One of the first things I made: I had loads of wood but couldn't think of what to do with it.

'Christmas Tree'

'Christmas Tree'

If the arms of this are arranged differently, it does turn into a Christmas Tree. Honest. It does look good when all the tealights are lit though
