I recently purchased a book of puzzles to build.  These two were my first built from the plans within.  Making puzzles is definitely a good way to practice precision, accuracy, and consistency in the shop.  

Making the best of a mistake. 

 Sometimes we make mistakes. While building a table from pallet wood, I was experimenting with a new technique and ended up ruining the table top. The boards were too thin for making a table, but good for making this box. So, this is how I’ve made the most of my mistake!

Ottoman cupboard

Everyone has seen these ugly old hexagonal cupboards from the 70’s, right? Well I re-imagined this one into a funky storage ottoman and then added new hardware, and an upholstered cushion top. Dimensions: H – 21″, W – 27″, D – 24″
