Slow week in the shop. I’m between projects and doing a little spring cleaning and organization.

“just wanted to show you this pallet project I did. The pallet was about to go on the fire so I took it home took it apart and this came out of it.I have American walnut order for next project so looking forward to working with it so really big into up cycling which means using stuff people throw away and turn them into great projects. I was going to just make [the rails] straight but wanted to be different. So I took my axe and just did a one hit wonder and it split lovely. Wanted to get that look that they match if you where too put back together. l think it really made a difference to the over all look of it and the fact that it is made from reclaimed pallets ”
“My name Is Matt Selnick and I’m a Sophomore Industrial Design student here at Philadelphia University. I recently just finished a woodworking project for my design program and wanted to share it with you and your viewers. We had to design and create a stool entirely out of wood at full scale which would solve an identified issue. I have done research in the past about sitting disease and applying motion to seating, which is what I set out to do for this project. I have a few images attached of the final product, as well as the link to my portfolio (behance) which has my entire project process visually shown from start to finish. I really hope you can feature this on your channel, as well as get your feedback on how it turned out. This was my first “real” woodworking project, as I’ve spent many days over the years messing around with building things at a workbench, but this was my first large woodworking project and I loved it. I learned a lot about woodworking and jigs and techniques, and how to use a CNC machine for a few parts. I also did a lot of 3D printing for the bushing.

“The overall project took about 3 months of off and on work. The first 30 or so mortises were cut completely by hand. The rest were either drilled out or hogged out with a router and then cleaned up with a chisel. Overall the hardest part was bending the top rails without having them break. I had to soak them and then slowly clamp them down. The sides are also removable so the crib can be turned into a bed as the kid gets older. All in all it was great learning experience and I look forward to getting much much better at woodworking.”
