Default A lamp from the forest

Here is the first stage of a WIP. I saved several pieces of wooden scrap to make a night lamp. For a long period I put the pieces apart to avoid a possible bugs infestation of my wood provision I have in the garage.

At least for me, this is an unknown wood, but during the process it had a nice odor and an interesting vein.

Those were some very simple and effective jigs you used. Thanks for sharing Alexis.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thanks Alex, Interesting jig you made for flattening on the table saw. I have some apricot branches that I’ve been saving and was looking for a way to flatten them. Now I have an idea.

Hello, Johnny.

I have to be honest. The flattening jig belongs to a guy in Youtube, whose channel is THINK or something like that. He has a lot of interesting trick to work with the TS.

always impressive to watch what you manage to do what you do, with what you happen to have available.

Things are changing down you way for sure....I think perhaps for the better...but it will be a rough road getting there... be well, be safe Alexis!!!

Great ideas on using found material. I also liked the table saw jig.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
