In this category I will share my pallet wood creations. I have only recently got into this recycling wooden pallets and creating something useful out of something that would otherwise be destined to be burnt! I have no formal woodworking skills and rely largely on my imagination and the wonderful University that is Youtube.
New small batch of coasters off the bench. We are pleased with these. Have used slightly thicker and softer wood for these. So got a nice deep burn and good grain exposure.

This comprised new benches and a big rearrangement of her layout of tools and equipment etc. On completion of all of this Shalini realised that the current lighting set […]
