My woodworking and my Instagram
« on: June 29, 2019, 06:31:52 AM »
I haven't divulged a lot about what's been going on in my personal life but here's what I've been up to for a while. As you know I've bought my own place. What I haven't really said is I've built a lot of furniture for my condo. Things so far is my shelves in my living room, a shelf rehab in my kitchen, a floating shelf in my bedroom and my bed. Future projects include  a kegerator, a nightstand and a cabinet for my beer glasses. I've gotten really into this and am working on starting a side hustle to build beer and wine related products to sell at craft shows. I got the idea when I built a beer caddy for my homebrewed beer. I've also started an Instagram so if anyone wants to keep up  to date on my projects, follow me at shedside_woodworks.

As for future projects, I've got on the immediate list a dice tray for my Dungeons and Dragons games, a night stand, a desktop zen garden for my girlfriend and a beer glass cabinet.

And attached are some samples of some latest projects starting with the bed. I did the bed in 3 stages. It started as a platform bed since I've always liked them. Then I built the headboard a year later then finally the legs after when I realized I needed the storage space.

Here are a couple more. One is the beer caddy I built. Another are the shelves.

The caddy can fit 6 bottles. I made it out of oak. I decided against staining it because I was so infatuated with the wood as it was. So I just sprayed on a protective poly coat to protect the wood and it's served me well for many parties..

The shelves were simple. I took 2x8 (or was it 2x10 boards?) and used my router to cut in an edge. I then bought plumbing flanges, nipples (heh) and caps. I spray painted those with hammered steel spray paint and attached them to my wall with drywall anchors. Below that is a behind the couch shelf I built as well. Note on the shelf the old PS2. That was my launch model I used to complain about the DREs. I held onto it all these years and now it's a great decorative piece :)

And finally, this is what I'm working on now. It may look like a bench or a coffee table (and quite honestly, it can probably be used as a small bench but I didn't reinforce the dowels widthwise) but this isn't. My entrance is a mess of shoes. This is a shoe stand. This picture is a work in progress from last night. It's glued and clamped. All I have to do now is stain and add the protective poly finish. I'll probably do that Wednesday night after work when I can get to my shop. I have a family reunion today and seeing my girlfriend the rest of the weekend so I won't be able to get in today :(

Hobbyist woodworker mostly. But my plan is to do this as a side hustle and hopefully sell some work at craftshows. I think making beer and wine related pieces will sell. Especially in my area. Go to a ritzy area, people will buy my wine caddies and such. In a more blue collar area, the beer stuff will sell. And who knows. This may really take off and I can do woodworking full time. One can hope :)

I work a terrible job and live in my parents' basement.
Who is this anamoly we call Jumpman? How is he able to do what he does and still survive after years of torment? It seems he feeds on the hate, growing with an intense passion to put unassuming members in their place.

Thanks clips! I have another project mostly done. I'm just waiting for the hardware to come in. I'll try to post pics on Wednesday after I put it on.
