Woodworking

I enjoy working with wood in my projects. I like the warmth of the touch and character of the grain. A lot can be done with just a power drill and an angle grinder. So, I’ve setup a small wood-shop in my balcony.  Here are some of my woodworking projects:

It took some clever gymnastics to maintain orientation and attach the legs on this table. I’m quite happy with the results. This was also my first experiment with wood burning and I might have overdone a little -at one point I had to pour water to extinguish the fire.

You know how hard it is to get a grip on that precision screwdriver set of yours. Plus it’s a pain to search for and change bits. So, one day I just made a bunch of wooden handles and I’ve never looked back! It’s surprising how much of a difference this little change makes. I’ve organized them by type on my desk, and now I know exactly where to reach out to get the type I want.

This Korean style sit down table is surprisingly sturdy for the little amount of wood it’s made of. The graffiti is a constant reminder of my love of electronics and always cheers me up when I’m feeling low 🙂

I understood that sometimes it’s good to make mistakes and have a hook off by a bit. A little sloppiness gives the hangers more character. Of course one should not go overboard with the idea.
