    That mobile is absolutely fantastic, my boy would go nuts for that.

    Thanks. He doesn’t know what a tractor is yet but seems to like the bright colours anyway πŸ˜€

    P.S. It was all hand cut on scroll saw from 6 mm and 3 mm baltic birch ply and painted using acrylics.

    Made a couple of months ago, and conditioning nicely. Dreadful photo, though! Glass is scratched, beer is crystal clear and tasty as hell!

    (Oh, and before you say anything, I’m getting the Aga cleaned tomorrow, so leave it!)

    That mobile is fantastic!

    My old Ikea desk was too big, so built a new desk:

    It’s the only desk in the world with built-in storage for anti-tank rockets. Though I’m going to use it for bike tubing πŸ˜‰

    Love the fact that it has a warning that’s it’s heavy but conveniently fails to mention it may be full of anti tank missiles.

    Health and safety gets everywhere – I found this sign in an old TA building:

    Can only presume it’s more to do with it being oiled? But then why would it be so oily that you need barrier cream just to use it?

    I fear these questions will only be answered by more questions so will stop here.

    I started with one of these

    Used brute force and ignorance

    After lots of precision bodging and faffing I ended up with this

    Which fits nicely on this

    Sandwich, it’s all about the paperclips now! πŸ˜€

    By the way, I LOVE this thread. Keep dipping in and out and some of the brilliant creativity, care and attention that’s gone in to some of the stuff here is utterly brilliant. To everyone who’s posted here so far, and those who have yet to post, give yourselves a round of applause!

    Last year I made a Zoetrope, a device for making still images appear to move.
    I made it for a presentation assignment in a photography course I was doing and the images I used(25 in each strip) are all cyclical woodworking tasks…

    I also made it a sort of lamp by incorporating a set of 4 diopter lights I got from Ikea which change colour right before your very eyes!

    It spins on a 20″, 3-speed shopper wheel.

    Anyways, I only just got around to making a little video of it spinning.

    Interesting project but not the most useful thing I’ve ever made.. πŸ˜€

    I used a couple of scrap-ends of walnut and maple to make a couple of rings.

    Not amazing, but I was pleased with it. I have also made a coffee table out of old apple crates too.

    Tubeless inflator, bottle was salvaged from a skip, works very well though needs a bit of faffing.

    The guy who gets most of our burning wood for us brought us this pile.
    [url=https://flic.kr/p/rshq4y]An old Gazebo our wood bloke bought me. Can't burn it so…[/url] by Jon Wyatt, on Flickr

    It’s some other chap’s old gazebo which had started to collapse because the supports had rotted. Our guy bought it to me because he thought we could stick it in the wood burner but it’s been treated so no chance.

    So, what to do with it….? Well, Β£20 on some 12mm nuts and bolts, 4 hours work later…. It’s an extremely solid workbench. Weighs a ton. It’s not going to win any beauty contests and it still needs a plywood shelf on the bottom, the surface needs smoothing off a bit. I’m quite pleased with this. I’m looking for a vice now and will fix a fluorescent lamp to the wall right above it.

    you heat it up and put it over the bearing inner race

    and it slides off nicely

    no hammering

    Made a bench out of some Sycamore logs that had been lying about outside for a couple of years.
    I did make it for my allotment, but I kinda like it now, probably too much to leave outside open to the loveable pilfering rogues elements.

    Got a 70-year-old lathe that was covered in rust and wood shavings. Lots of cleaning up, made a couple of missing parts, faffed about facing the backplate and aligning things, and just fitted a DRO:

    Now running as good as new, with 0.01mm runout.

    dro looks familiar. we got it off ebay i think. works a treat. one of the segments has gone funny, but it makes lathe work so much easier i would replace it instantly if it went wrong. where did you stick the z scale?

    bencooper
    Member

    Yes, Β£300 eBay Chinese special, But very helpful people, and it seems to work well – and o be honest I don’t need micron precision, it’s just because it’s an Imperial lathe and I can’t be bothered counting turns of the handle or worrying about backlash.

    The Z scale is on the back – that was relatively simple, the X scale needed some thought:

    Pork scratchings!

    Skinned some pork shoulder for a 36hr slow cook, and thought to myself, “Hmm, now what shall I do with this?”.

    It’s gone now. πŸ˜€
