We are making a little “A” frame sign for the curb at our shop and captured this little time lapse of the layout process. I only had 2 of these (front and back of the sign) to do so I didn’t bother make a template. I just used the cad dimensions and a tape measure with some tape. We used tape to get the rough layout and then mark our spots with a pencil and use a square to assist in final positioning. It’s not a perfect method but it gets the job done. Would love to hear your techniques when laying out signage!! 👇
Pools Open! Crystal blue and clean...plus we made a cute little hang out pool space where we only had storage and garbage before. Decorated it with all reclaimed or second hand stuff...old school lockers ($30), a wire spool from running electric to the barns (free) and old wooden chairs from Craigslist $15, plus a storage bench I already had and some hand painted signs we made from a chicken cooped I demoed last year. Total space made over for $45!! #renovationlife #reclaimed #reducereuserecyle #zerowaste
I had a follower, @vincentmacdonald tag me in a photo yesterday. He made his first mallet and it looked amazing. I messaged a couple other mallet makers. @joos_woodworks and @tyson_moore and told them I’d post my first mallet. I still use this one and as you can see when you swipe to the right, it stays really tight still. My design has evolved and the woods I use has gotten a little more expensive. Show us your first project or your first version of something you’re better at now. #myfirstmallet
R O A R | H O M E - my little shadow now has his own desk area which he loves to bits. Everything here has been done on a budget the same size as him (he is 2 so not a particularly big budget).
The old school desk and chair were picked up from a charity shop for the unbelievable price of £2.99 (yep that’s right, table AND chair). The frame was one I had in the loft which was painted using some leftover paint. A dinosaur gift bag was cut up to fill the frame because we liked the print. The letters we cut from an old cardboard box which were then painted and finally, the “feelgood” postcards were from @frompaperchase a few years back.
In all honesty I thought the budget would be blown right out of the water but due to the table and chair deal of the century we even walked away with change! Wham bam thank you mam!
Before throwing in the towel and tearing my #delta planer apart, I took off all the safety guards, cleaned it like crazy and ran a few blanks through to check. Phew, it's fixed and I'm back on top! Now who is going to clean my shop...
